I finished ‘Guess Who I Pulled Last Night’ late last night and went to sleep with a contented smile. I do love a good love story and I have thoroughly enjoyed this one. Don’t get me wrong, it hasn’t been warm and fuzzy all the way through. It certainly has it’s fair share of drama and heartache.
I really warmed to many of the characters and found myself willing things to turn out well for them so they could have their happy ending. Three 30 something girlfriends, so different, but as close as sisters and all trying to deal with their own issues.
Kerry is married to Kelvin and they have a little girl together. Usually full of life, Kerry hasn’t been herself more recently. Not even she knows why and everyone is worried about her, but they don’t know what to do for the best.
Charlotte has had her heart broken in the past and has struggled to move on, but has built herself a successful career. When Niall Devine walks into the office they clash immediately, but do they really dislike each other.
Bets owns her own beauty salon and has no problem attracting the opposite sex. She’s convinced herself she’s happy with no-strings flings, but is she really. When she meets Stuart she is shocked by how strongly she feels for him in such a short time and starts to believe that he may be the one…..
This story tackles some difficult issues with sensitivity including depression and grief, but is also very amusing in parts. The author is obviously very fond her characters as they are written with such care and understanding. I’m sure most of us are lucky enough to share friendships like Bets’s, Charlotte’s and Kerry’s so they are very relatable. I have to say though that I think Tom is my favourite.
This is my first Nikki Ashton book, but it won’t be my last!
This funny and charming romance that tells the story of three twenty-something friends and how they cope with the trials and tribulations of life; always finding comfort and loyalty in each other.
Charlotte is scatty and engaging and after having her heart broken 3 years earlier by cheating, Capri driving, Grant she’s now looking for love again believing that finding Prince Charming will make her life complete; but is the arrogant but frustratingly sexy Irishman, Niall Devine, that man?
Bets is the glamorous good-time girl and beauty salon owner who secretly yearns to settle down. She is the life and soul of the party with plenty of notches on her bedpost but since flirting with hunky Stuart all summer she wonders if he may be the one that she finally commits to.
Kerry, of the impressive cleavage, is the only of the trio to be married and a mother. She should feel satisfied and content but feels like she’s missing out and losing her identity. Suddenly she’s turned in to the bitch from hell, alienating all those around her, including Charlotte, Bets and her devoted husband, Kelvin.
This is a charming story focussing on friendship and love, but exploring some difficult and sensitive issues in its course. It has humour and wry observations and some surprises along the way. It will make you laugh out loud, smile, cry and desperate to turn every page.
Nikki lives in Cheshire with her husband, two dogs and lovely mother-in-law who supplies her with endless cups of tea. She writes romance with a touch of humour and lots of love, and hopes that she puts a smile on her reader’s faces. Her ambitions of becoming a writer started at the age of 10 when she started writing poetry at school, and was given the honour of reading one of her poems to the rest of her year group (a truly embarrassing experience that she will never forget). Nikki is grateful for the wide variety of strange and wonderful people in her life, otherwise she’d never know what to write about! She is currently talking to family and friends, finding out their innermost secrets in readiness for her next book.
