Dating Down

Dating Down

Suddenly single and unexpectedly poor, it’s definitely safe to say that Alexis Harland is not living the life of her dreams.

Although she’s determined that nothing, not one little thing, will stop her return from poverty. Well, almost nothing. Her pride might get in the way a little. And possibly her family. And maybe the fact that she hasn’t got a clue where to start.

Many years ago, Alexis was swept away from life on a caravan park and introduced to a world of riches and glamour. All thanks to a wealthy man who married her, reinvented her… and then dumped her for a younger model at the first sign of cellulite.

Now Alexis is stranded, struggling to keep her head above water and her history a secret from her highbrow friends.

As if that isn’t enough for a woman to deal with, one night she comes home to find a sexy man has landed, quite literally, on her doorstep. A man hell-bent on testing everything Alexis thinks she knows about true happiness.

Caught between the life she knows and her blossoming love, can Alexis afford to let go of her unwavering pride, kiss her social status goodbye and accept that stepping back to square one is sometimes a huge leap forward?

My Thoughts

4 Second Chance Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Loved this book and I love Bob, where can I find me a Bob??? This was a delightful story filled with so much humor, hope, and heart! It was all about second chances and figuring out what really matters.. this book kept me smiling throughout, I was just so engaged with these characters even though I didn’t love all of them from the get go…

Alexis is newly single and broke… used to the finer things in life she tends to judge a person by the size of their wallet rather than the size of their heart… Alexis was the kind of character that grew on you over the course of a book, in the beginning I did not much like her, but with the help of Bob I began to see the good in her…. Bob is the caring taxi driver who drops off Candy, Alexis‘s sister at her house after a night of drinking…. Bob is concerned about Candy and that is how he meets Alexis and changes the course of her life for the better… as you can tell I am a bit enamored of Bob, but you will be to after read this book, I defy you not to be!Candy was a fabulous character I thought she brought such energy to every part of the book she was in….

A wonderfully heartwarming story about second chances and acceptance… A book with laughs throughout A true romcom but SO much Mark!

Strongly recommend if you enjoy romances that make you hope, laugh, love, and smile…

Author Bio –

Diane Louise is a dairy farmer’s wife from the UK who doesn’t know a Holstein from a Hereford.

But what she does know is how to write a funny story. Three years ago she tried to write steamy romance and sucked at it. Honestly, her stiff upper lip made her heroes more wet blankets than wet dreams. With a steely determination to avoid milking the cows, she turned her hand to Romantic Comedy and a star was born. Well, in her mind at least.

Fancy getting to know the woman behind the words?

She hangs around Facebook daily, desperately avoiding housework, and loves nothing more than chatting to fellow lovers of Romantic Comedy over at Di’s Romantic Comedy Club. Or, if you don’t do Facebook, that’s cool, because she also sends a monthly email to her readers, making sure they never miss a new release and sharing behind the scene info about her books. You can join The Monthly Club here.
