A slime ball ex, lots and lots of wine and a emergency pep talk from the girls leads to blazing hot passion and a series of delightful events that had me laughing out load !

This is a new author to me and I was not expecting anything much as I will be honest, I had not heard fantastic things about this book! But WOW I was so amazed and entertained that I could not put this read down and read it in one sitting.

The author very cleverly incorporated the direction of a cheating ex pushing a girl into

Izzy's ready for her couple's mini-break...on her own! Having found out her boyfriend's a love rat, Izzy decides to turn the hotel getaway into a getting-over-him stay! She will drink the bar dry of wine, she will eat chocolate and she will have a one night stand! Whoa! Who put that on the list? Izzy doesn't do that sort of thing! But then she's never met anyone quite like Oliver Forbes before!

Gorgeous, sexy hero and a heroine to cheer on, Your Room or Mine is a 5 star novella that leaves you co

Your Room or Mine? is a fast-paced, racy little read from an amazing author. The sparkly dialogue, hot, sensual love scenes and wonderful characters made this a fabulous story. Well done Charlotte, can't wait for the rest in the series :)

So you dump your boyfriend after you catch him cheating, and the two of you were supposed to get away for a romantic weekend. What do you do with that hotel room? Izzy Shaw decides to go anyway, and if she can enjoy a hot hook-up, then all the better.

This novella tells a cute story and has characters you will enjoy. Even better, it's hot.

Izzy gets her hook-up, with the adorably inscrutable Oliver Forbes, and she makes the most of it. With Oliver's help, of course. They enjoy the wrinkled bed she
And now, for something completely different... No doom and gloom here ! But short review still because I lack time, sorry.
I read this book thanks to Cupcake's book cupboard review. Thank you so much !
When I reached half the book and noticed my kindle battery was 32% only (damn lowlife battery), I knew I was going to be in withdrawal until I could have it reloaded and be able to continue ! Fortunately, I had time to finish.
I loved both main characters, even if they both had big issues, I liked I

This is a great book, especially if you have a few hours to spare one evening or are whiling your time away whilst on holiday.

Izzy and Oliver were polar opposites at the beginning of the book, meeting quite by chance, and with completely different outlooks on life and relationships in general. I really enjoyed reading the changes between them as they spent more time together, and got to know about each other more. I only wish that their book has a sequel as I would love to see how their relation

I love Charlotte Phillips voice. This isn't my first book by this author, but it's my first read of the authors sexy side - and wow she writes good steamy!
Your Room or Mine is a short read, making it perfect for a much needed dose of fun and flirty romance. The pace and length is set just right; fast enough to engage and entertain you throughout, but long enough to take you along on a seductive journey that turns into so much more.
Fabulous read, I couldn't put it down.

This is my first time reading Charlotte Phillips and this novella from HarperImpulse made for a fun start. Add great dialogue, the hilarious list of things to get over a bad relationship while the heroine strives to protect her heart, and Your Room or Mine makes for the perfect Sunday afternoon read. Can't wait to dive into the next in the series.

Your Room Or Mine? by Charlotte Phillips is a short, sweet and entertaining story. For me it was like reading a story about one of my girlfriends who is also a gardener, who's clients are also lawyers :). Well let's hope she will have just as good of a one-night-stand in her life.

Your Room or Mine is a sweet little novella that I enjoyed but it was too short for me to really fall in love with it.

For the most part Your Room or Mine was a fun and flirty read about two people with some great chemistry. It was sweet, sexy and often managed to make me laugh. It is not the most original book in the world and if you are a romance reader then you are bound to have come across something like this before but it is short and sweet enough to giv

I bought this because it was free – simple as that. I didn’t even read the blurb.

I’ve read a few Harper Impulse titles and have enjoyed them in the past so based on that and the price I was sucked into downloading it. I’m a sucker for a bargain! Just because it was free does not mean that it wasn’t great and I’m really glad I just went ahead and downloaded it.

This short novella is about Izzy and Oliver. The characters meet in the reception of a hotel they’re both staying in. Oliver staying becau

Jane Hunt Writer First Steps

'Your Room or Mine?' is a romantic; sexy novella with the class of a novel.

A romantic break Izzy takes alone has an unexpected highlight. Izzy's heart's in jeopardy when she agrees to a one night stand with Oliver a sexy workaholic lawyer. Oli

Izzy has been burned by her ex and she is ready to move on, or at least for something new. When checking in at the hotel, which was supposed to be a romantic getaway and is now her reinvention weekend, she bumps into Oliver. Handsome, charming and he knows it. He also knows Izzy is an easy prey and wonders if she is open for a little something.

Trying to be a bit out of character, Izzy accepts his offer and well you can imagine what follows. It was supposed to be no-strings-attached, never seeing

Light and nice: a perfect romance to take to the beach for the vacation!

Izzy wants to forget her unfaithful ex by deciding to spend a night with a awesome stranger. Only rules: no Strings Attached. Too bad or a joke of destiny...she meets him some time later at a professional event. She is not against some hot sex or a relationship without commitment.

But fun gives way to a more intimate relationship and the two heroes have to face their fears to see if they are willing to update their without en

When you open a book and immediately get thrown in at the deep end you brave yourself for one of two things.
1) it's gunna burn out and bore you.
2) You're going to devour every page as your drowning in words and brilliance.
Obviously you're wanting to know what I did when reading Your room or mine aren't you?
Well chick lit lovers I swam. Me and number two went hand in hand as I burnt my fingers on every delicious page. It is a hot, dramatic and extremely delightful tale of a bizarre one night s

I'm going backwards here. I read the 2nd one in the series and decided I would read this one before No. 3, a Christmas themed story.

The heroine in this story describes herself as a gardener when she meets the Lawyer hero on her Mini-break. It was a case of insta-lust but in a novella length story I can live with that, especially as they connected on other levels as well.

I expected this to be a one night stand story but after that initial meeting our romantic couple meet accidentally which leads

I loved this as a short story and read the whole book in 1 sitting. It was well written and the characters well developed and likable. This would make a fab holiday read and I will be making sure I check out the others in the series.

Izzy was a fantastic character who was a lot stronger then she believed, and the chemistry between her and Oliver was amazing. I was actually quite upset when the book ended as I would have loved to see what the future held for them.

I recieved this novella from NetGalley.

This little novella was a blast to read, I enjoyed the characters and the story-line itself, it is funny, witty, moving and honest, traits that all work in the novella's favour.

This novella is short and sweet, it is cheeky and flirty and shows the reader that moving on from a relationship is never as easy as having a one-night stand.

Great, fun little book, great for anyone who enjoys romance, or even comedic novels, all in all, a great little read

Phew - i started this book last night, and read it in one go! Afterwards, i needed a couple of cold showers! Written with great style, this is a racy read with the intimate scenes played out sensually, without the cringe-factor. The author soon has you caring about the main characters, and like them, has you wondering what will happen, long-term, outside of the bedroom. A great, indulgent, little read!

Finally! An e-novella done well. While a brief story at 90 pages, the author did a good job pacing the romance, not getting too smutty in the sex scenes and making the characters flawed enough (but not dramatically so) to help add some healthy conflict along the way.

Lately, I've felt as if I've read some hurried and immature romance novellas. This was a pleasant enough read to keep me optimistic that e-novellas can be rich and entertaining.

Actual rating 4.5

This was a good, lighthearted read. It kept me turning the pages, made me smile and I engaged surprisingly well with the story and the characters. It was a great summer read to relax with and I liked the author's style. Things moved along quickly and it ended well, I'll definitely be looking out for more by this author.

Just the tonic for a wet day - a fun, flirty and fast read.

Charlotte Phillips sure knows how to write a hot scene - sizzling stuff. It had a solid plot line to back up the hot scenes, with believable characters and a really engaging style of writing.

A very enjoyable read. I shall definitely look out for this author again.

Super quick read, steamy but not overly graphic. I did enjoy it, and I enjoy Charlotte Phillips a lot. Both characters were flawed and there were tons of misunderstandings but it worked out (of course). No great novel here but I enjoyed it.
I don't always like giving five stars (it's the market researcher in me) but I thoroughly enjoyed this story.

I just loved Izzy! And Oliver, of course.

The author has a lovely voice. It's another hot, sexy read.

This was the perfect novella to read on a rainy afternoon. It was funny, witty and cute. It wasn't deep or thought provoking, just a good old fashioned romantic comedy. I only wished the story was longer. Izzy was the perfect character to relate to! Overall, four stars for being a great short read!
