#Giveaway + Book Review: Nicole

Happy Monday, Reader Friends!!

I hope you had a great weekend. I’m excited to share my book review of Nicole by Sarah Monzon. It’s book three in the Sewing in SoCal series (book 1 and 2) and proof that Ms. Monzon gets better with every book.

About the Book

Who has time to date when she’s trying to raise a miniature human by herself AND save the planet from its irresponsible inhabitants? Not to mention my winning personality (snort) and my curves-have-curves figure (eyeroll) don’t exactly attract the opposite sex. Unfortunately, none of these reasons have stopped my best friends and SoCal sewing sisters from taking on the archaic role of matchmakers, and they’re not beneath a little bribery if that’s what it takes to get my cooperation. Let’s just say everyone has their weak spot, and donations to my favourite charities is mine.

If I were to consider a romantic relationship, my dream guy certainly wouldn’t be immature, everything-is-a-game Dr. Drew Bauer. The man raises my body temperature faster than global warming does the Earth’s! But life seems determined to keep throwing us together, especially now that one of my SoCal sewing sisters is engaged to his best friend, in which case there can only be one of two outcomes:

1. I kill him in a fit of annoyance.

2. My common sense escapes me, and I fall in love with him.

Honestly, I’m not sure which would be worse.

My Thoughts

pin me

This series is one of Sarah Monzon’s best. Each book keeps getting better and better.

I thought Amanda was fantastic and made me laugh and snort. Then I thought Jocelyn was swoony with humorous moments sprinkled throughout. But Nicole…

Enemies to lovers is one of my favorite tropes. And with Nicole and Drew you get a little feist, witty dialogue, and a whole lot of lol moments.

No lie, I probably wrote “lol” and “lmbo” all throughout the book as I critiqued for Sarah. But then she threw in some deep issues that hit me in the feels. I may have even teared up at a couple of scenes.

I love all that Sarah Monzon accomplished in this novel and I’ve read it a couple of times with plans to reread it in the future because Drew is now one of my favorite Monzon heroes.

*I received a complimentary copy from the publisher but loved it so much I bought my own.
