When Lottie Watt is unceremoniously booted out of her uptight book club for not following the rules, she decides to throw the rulebook out the window and start her own club – one where conversation, gin and cake take precedent over actually having read the book!

The Beach Reads Book Club soon finds a home for its meetings at Books by the Bay, a charming bookshop and café owned by gorgeous, brooding Matthew Steele, and as the book club picks heat up, so too does the attraction between Matt and Lottie.

If there’s anything Lottie has learned from the romances she’s been reading, it’s that the greatest loves are the ones hardest earned.

A love letter to chicklit, romance, romcoms, whatever you want to call them!

My review:

First of all, I really loved the plot idea of this book. I thought it was so cool that the main character decided to start her own book club and the books they chose to read were several popular rom- com books that are out there now. I thought that was a unique idea.

I really liked the fact that each book that they read was in the chapter titles when the book club met. I realized I had a few that I need to read in the future. I like it when books mention other books in them because they are like recommendations from friends.

I also really loved the characters and how close the book club got with each other. I think my favorite characters were Lottie and Audrey. I did like the romance.

I didn’t like the love triangle that happened. I thought that was not needed for the story. The pacing also was a bit off for me, it took me awhile to get into the book.

Overall this story had a cute premises and it was a three star rating. A three star rating doesn’t mean it is bad, it still means that I liked it.

Thank you Netgalley and publishers for giving me the chance to read and review this. My thoughts and opinions are my own.


Thank you for reading! Sorry I have been AWOL this year. There is no real reason except for my laptop getting in the way. I finally got a tablet and a bluetooth keyboard so hopefully that will help me start getting into blogging. I also am not really a fan of WordPress’s new look. I know we can get the plugin but I saw you have to have the business plan and I don’t want to upgrade at this time since this is still just a casual hobby. I also have decided that Twitter is not for me so I am only on Facebook and Instagram for my blog. Edit: Also I am so sorry but the title is wrong in my URL for some reason. I know the title of the book but, WordPress.
