Release Date: June25th 2019
Genre: Contemporary Romance
American-born, Australian-raised Rachel Kennedy was born to be an actress–all the way down to her drama queen ways. But when a bad day leaves her life and her dream in ruins, she’s not sure what to do next. Her silver spoon-upbringing never prepared her for that.
With a bank account at nothing and an inability to pull off a convincing accent for casting directors, Rachel’s about to give up on everything. Not on her best friend’s watch. Lily is there to help her every step of the way–if the definition of help involves convincing her to take drastic measures, each one blowing up more than the one that came before.
Once Lily shoves Rachel into the let’s-get-drunk-and-screw-a-stranger phase, she winds up tangled in the arms of Christian Whitmore, a cop with a sinful smile, sexy stubble, and impeccable timing. He’s there to pick her up when she falls and to take her out for fish and chips at her favourite place.
But then again, so is his identical twin brother, Kevin. Double. Trouble.
Stuck at a major crossroads in her life, can Rachel ever find happiness again, or is she just looking in all the wrong places?
Lily interviews Rachel
LM: What would you do without me?
RK: I’d wear crappy costumes.
RK: I’d drink better wine?
LM: Bitch, without me, you wouldn’t have any wine to drink. The correct answer was ‘NOTHING. You would do nothing without me.’ Let’s try again. Next question: Who wears the pants?
RK: What kind of question is that?
LM: A good one.
RK: You do, I guess.
LM: *rolling eyes* Bzzzzz. The correct answer was ‘we don’t wear pants.’ You are really sucking at this one.
RK: Girl, you’ve been laid more recently than I have. Which means I’m wearing pants. Or a chastity belt. Or something.
LM: Or something. Okay, you can’t get this one wrong… Kill, f*ck, marry…and go!
RK: That’s such a loaded question. Kill, Kanye. For sure. Screw, there are a lot of good answers here. Um, Darren Hayes?
LM: Is that a question or an answer?
RK: An answer.
LM: Damn straight.
RK: *laughing* No, no he’s not.
LM: Okay, and who do you marry?
RK: Who else but my red-headed prince of Wales.
LM: Duke of Sussex, but who’s counting? Okay, another easy one for you… Kindle or books?
RK: It doesn’t really matter to me, but my Kindle is more portable and I can get loads of free books on it. So I’ll say Kindle.
LM: Didn’t you tell me the last few free ones you downloaded were utter and complete shit?
RK: *gasp* I would never say that about a book.
LM: Yeah. Okay. Whatever you say, Pinocchio. Moving on, if you could go back in time, what decade would you visit?
RK: Easiest question ever. The eighties.
LM: Look at that, she finally got one right. Though, let’s face it, the neon colors of the 80s and your complexion just aren’t a good combination.
RK: But the music. The movies. All worth it.
LM: I won’t argue that. All right, last question: What’s your stripper song? You have one so don’t lie!
RK: I don’t strip.
LM: But you do dance. For a living, I might add, such as that living is. So picture yourself on the pole at the club and tell me what’s playing.
LM: Within reason. Don’t go busting out some showtunes. Cause we don’t strip to showtunes.
RK: *snaps fingers in disappointment* Oh, I got it. [sings] Never gonna give you up / Never gonna let you down / Never gonna run around and desert you.
LM: Did… did you just Rick roll me?
RK: *smug smile*
LM: This interview is over.
Before I get into my review, can we take a minute or five to appreciate how sexy this cover is? *le sigh* Ok on to the review!
I don’t even know if I can properly put into words how much I LOVED this book!! From the story to the characters, it’s just an awesome read. I did not put it down. Thank the goddess for pizza delivery! If you find yourself feeling some type of way about certain characters then the author did her job. Some made me mad and some I wanted to hang out and get blackout drunk with. Well done Miss Perrin! The story didn’t turn out the way I thought it would and I was totally ok with that. This author never fails to surprise me in any of her books. I highly recommend this for anyone who wants a guilty pleasure read. Pro tip: Have the pizza delivery number near by. I give this 5 stars!
~About the Author~
Randi has spent her entire life writing in one form or another. In fact, if she wasn’t writing, she’d likely go completely and utterly insane. Her husband has learned to recognize when the voices are talking in her head and she needs some quality time with an empty Word file (the key to a successful marriage with a writer).
She lives with her husband, daughter, and four-legged children (all of which think they are people too).
A pop culture junkie, she has been known to have entire conversations in movie quotes and/or song lyrics.
