Another Shot at Love by Niecey Roy - Book Review

Imogen Gorecki has a problem—her twin sister just got engaged, and guess who’s the best man? That’s right, her scum-of-an-ex-boyfriend whom she caught cheating with a bottle-blonde, with fake breasts and a stripper’s flexibility. There’s a disturbing possibility her eyes will never recover.

Gen needs a date for the engagement party, but finding Mr. Perfect in a time crunch is proving impossible. Just when she’s about to give up, she face-plants into the crotch of the sexiest guy she’s ever met.

Matt Sesnick is everything Gen wants in a man —except he’s not interested in a relationship. Can she convince Matt to take another shot at love, or will Gen’s pregnant, hormonal older sister, her bridezilla twin, and all of her past Mr. Wrongs get in the way of their happily-ever-after?

      Imogen Gorecki had just come off from a bad relationship. She caught her boyfriend intertwined in a porn-worthy position with a Barbie bombshell that will forever leave a trauma in her brain. She left her boyfriend, the apartment they shared and her job. Months later, she wasn’t yet ready to date which alarmed everyone around her. Her pregnant and terrible-at-matchmaking sister threw her blind dates like there was no tomorrow, and to top it all up, her twin sister just got engage to her ex’s best friend.
I wasn’t searching for Mr. Perfect anymore – what I wanted was normal. Plain and simple.  
      She needed a date (badly) to an engagement party.  How can searching for Mr. Normal be that difficult?? Gen had no idea it was that hard. The few dates she’s been out with proves to be a walking disaster one after the other. She was about to resign herself in coming alone until she face-plants into the crotch in one of the hottest man she had ever laid eyes on.
      Matt Sesnick was Mr. Perfect, a gentleman, humorous, thoughtful, and most of all, SEXY! He is really perfect, well except for the relationship part, because he had no interest in engaging in a relationship right now. Neither was she – or she’d like to think so, until the pressure of her not-dating and the increasing fear of her folks of her getting back with Brent (the scumbag) made her blurt out a little white lie that led into meeting the parents, and having him introduced as the fake boyfriend.
      I love them both – especially Matt because he was a sport about the whole thing, very gentlemanly of him. He was really a perfect guy for Imogen, but with a past of his own, his readiness to enter into another relationship is also questionable. In fairness to him, he was honest about it. They started out as friends who kissed and spends movie time together – but as the days goes, the attraction strengthens and emotion was starting to grow. Question is, can both of them take another chance at love??
      The secondary characters were pretty awesome – they give out the best scenes that will have you laughing: Catherine, the pregnant older sister, with unstable hormones, Lexi her bridezilla twin, Roxanna her beautiful and ever supportive friend, and even Richard – the geek from the IT department! Combine them all together, threw in a controlling future-in-laws, a future grand-wedding, and an assuming ex-boyfriend, it was a total chaos. But I loved it.
      Another shot at love is my Sunday read – and I totally enjoyed reading it. Ms. Roy made sure you will be laughing your hearts out (besides falling in love) after you have put your readers down. I love the characters, the dialogues, the plot and most especially the humor that will make your aching hearts feel lighter.
      If you want something light, funny, sweet and heartwarming. Another Shot at Love is great story about love, family, moving on and second chances.

Niecey Roy knew she wanted to be a writer from a very young age, but her moment of enlightenment came after watching the movie You’ve Got Mail. It was then she realized her place in life and happily parked her butt on writing romance. Her dream was to create sexy vixens, hunky, half naked heroes, and above all, romance; lots and lots of butterflies in the belly, breathless first kisses and happily-ever-afters. 

When she’s not at her day job where she works as a legal assistant, she can be found at home at a cluttered desk, pounding her tired little fingers away on a keyboard with nothing but black pepper flavored sunflower seeds and Visine as her weapons for mass-romance-novel-creation. When her fingers need a break, you’ll find her at a table with friends, drinking a few martinis and showing off a new pair of (sometimes ridiculous) high heels. She’s usually the loudest at the table and most often the one snorting with laughter.
