Back Cover Blurb:

What do you do when you find out you’re pregnant, your boyfriend rejects you, your sister is beaten half to death and the most annoyingly gorgeous man takes up residence in your house? Well ladies, there is only one thing to do, pull up your big girl knickers and show the world your middle finger.

Louise Beaumont is renowned for her sharp wit, smart mouth and sassy personality. She comes out swinging in an argument, even when she’s wrong. But even some events in life can knock her on her arse. And fighting through the sludge of emotional pressure she’s had poured over her is taking its toll.

Johan Senior is broken. A man with a deeply traumatic past, shadows and monsters haunt his every waking hour. That is until a heavenly angel is sent in the form of a loud mouthed chestnut haired vixen, who threatens his manhood countless times. But his heart grabs onto her and refuses to let her go. The only problem is, his mind needs to allow him the pleasure of human touch, and to take that terrifying step of allowing someone into his heart.

Part of the Surviving series but can be read as a standalone novel.

My Review:

This was a rather enjoyable read. Frost’s easy going & comical writing style invites readers into the world that she’s created. The multiple POVs and tenses give you full and complete picture of everyone’s stories. Frost isn’t afraid to tackle difficult and unsavoury topics with a tact and flare that brings them to the forefront of the story.

I really enjoyed getting to know the characters. Frost’s unique method of developing her main characters makes them into individuals that you really know. They become so real that you feel like part of their story. The main characters come together in a touching way that makes you love them all the more.

As a whole this was a very enjoyable story. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.
