SEEKING THE SMART ONE

Twenty-four-year-old Jen Reid had her life in good shape: an okay job, a tiny-cute Seattle apartment, and a great boyfriend almost ready to get serious. In a flash it all came apart. Single, unemployed, and holding an eviction notice, who has time to remember trying out for a reality show? Then the call comes, and Jen sees her chance to start over—by spending her summer on national TV.

Luckily The Fishbowl is all about puzzles and games, the kind of thing Jen would love even if she wasn’t desperate. The cast checks all the boxes: cheerful, quirky Birdie speaks in hashtags; vicious Ariana knows just how to pout for the cameras; and corn-fed “J-dawg” plays the cartoon villain of the house. Then there’s Justin, the green-eyed law student who always seems a breath away from kissing her. Is their attraction real, or a trick to get him closer to the $250,000 grand prize? Romance or showmance, suddenly Jen has a lot more to lose than a summer . . .

mythoughts

Jen is jobless, homeless and newly single, but despite that she’s going to have an amazing summer, because she’s going to spend it on national TV. Jen likes the reality show Fishbowl because there are a lot of puzzles in addition to other tasks. The grand prize is $250, 000, which would be very useful for her. When Jen and other contestants arrive at the Fishbowl set, it all gets real, there are people in whom she can find good friends and people, who want her off the show as fast as possible. Will Jen win the show and get the amazing grand prize?

I’ve never read a book about a reality show and therefore it was such a unique story. I really enjoyed  Jen’s journey from the casting until the end of the show. I liked that there was such a colorful cast of characters and enough tension, drama and romance, but not over the top silliness that can be found in reality shows on TV. I also liked the fact that there were a lot of mental and physical challenges and the plot was not wholly built on the relationship between the characters. While reading the book I thought I knew what the ending might be, but it totally surprised me in a good way. All in all I found the book entertaining, well written and a pleasure to read.

THE GAME OF HIS LIFE

Hockey player Ben Westmore has some serious skills—on and off the ice—and he’s not above indulging in the many perks of NHL stardom. When a night in Vegas ends in disaster, he realizes two things: 1) it’s time to lie low for a while, and 2) he needs a lawyer—fast. But the smoking-hot woman who walks into his office immediately tests all his good intentions.

Olivia Davis doesn’t need anyone derailing her career—or her dreams of starting a family—least of all a skirt-chasing player like Ben. But soon he’s unleashing a full-court press to convince her that he’s the real deal. She’s slowly falling for his sweet, rugged charm, but with so much on the line, Olivia has to decide whether Ben can truly change—or if he’s just playing the game.

mythoughts

Ben is a professional hockey player, who has skills on and off the ice. He knows he can have any woman he wants and quite often he takes advantages of it. When he suddenly hears what he had done on New year’s Eve, he’s in big trouble and needs a lawyer to take care of the situation. He’s not a big drinker, but a moment from his past hit him hard and drunken night out led to a mistake he never meant to make. Olivia is a divorce attorney for professional athletes and she’s worked hard to get where she’s now. Concentrating on work didn’t leave time for her personal life, but being in her 30-s, she longs for a family, especially because she doesn’t have any family members herself. When Ben and Olivia meet there’s instant chemistry, but considering the circumstances, they just can’t be together at the time. Fate on the other hand has other plans and they start to bump into each other and as they spend more time in each other’s present, feelings are starting to develop.

It was my first book by Jennifer Snow and even though it’s the second book in the series it can be read as a standalone. I really enjoyed this book and I definitely want to read about the other Westmore brothers. It’s a well written book that makes you devour this sweet romance. It has a great storyline, characters and romance. I loved seeing both main characters open up to each other and working through their issues towards the ir happily ever after. I’m really happy I decided to read this book, because I found a new author whose work I enjoy.
