Now you know I have a bit of an author crush on Monique McDonell, a fellow Australian and fantastic writer. So when I saw she was releasing a new novella I was excited and originally was going to purchase this book to read on the plane to Problogger, but I was lucky enough to get an Advance copy direct from Monique. (It may have also made me a little happy when my profile picture reminded her of the cover of Any way you Slice it)
Any way you slice it by Monique McDonell is everything you need in a romance novel with a twist.
Piper is in a slight predicament - get deported back to Australia or marry her 'Danny' (a reference to Cherie's cousin, Aaron) to stay in the US. Only thing is she has never met Aaron but he is willingly open to getting to know Piper and possibly marry her in a sexless marriage.
Piper and Aaron are two workaholics and have been unlucky in love. Piper has started her own food truck business selling the great Australian Classic Aussie Meat Pies and currently trying to further her successful business and Aaron is a successful lawyer on his way to becoming a partner. Two gorgeous and successful people...what could possibly go wrong?
Join Piper and Aaron on a whirlwind romance and possible trip down the aisle, will they last to both get their end of the deal or will someone come between their relationship which result in Piper having to loose her new life and go back to Australia
I thoroughly enjoyed this novella, you know you are reading a great book when you have not moved whilst reading the book and once you are finish you realise it is now dark
My favourite male lead from all of Monique's novels was Jack from Hearts Afire (you can read my review of Hearts Afire here) but now I love Aaron and his journey with Piper through the ups and downs of relationship, whether that be a real relationship or a fake relationship.
I am hoping that there will be a sequel to Any way you Slice it
