Imogen Gorecki had just come off from a bad relationship. She caught her boyfriend intertwined in a porn-worthy position with a Barbie bombshell that will forever leave a trauma in her brain. She left her boyfriend, the apartment they shared and her job. Months later, she wasn’t yet ready to date which alarmed everyone around her. Her pregnant and terrible-at-matchmaking sister threw her blind dates like there was no tomorrow, and to t ...more
Another Shot at Love is a laugh out loud romantic comedy, so I advise taking your surroundings into consideration before you start reading, unless you enjoy making a spectacle of yourself. By the end of the book when Gen finally makes it to the engagement party, I was laughing so hard I could barely read. From the way Gen meets Matt to the riotous engagement party, there is never a dull moment.
I fell in love with Gen from the ...more
Imogen “Gen” Gorecki can’t seem to figure out this whole dating/relationship deal. When she goes from taken to single after her dick of boyfriend bangs his ex she finds herself being forced to partner up so she isn’t going stag for her twin’s engagement party.
Dud after dud, Gen is about to give up completely when she comes face to um... not face with Matt. When he overhears her being dumped over a plate of bad Italian food, he can’t help himself. But Matt isn’t inter ...more

I don't leave spoilers in my reviews but I will say that this book had it all...lots of laughs and outrageous moments, heartwarming family connections, love & lust, some sexy time between the sheets & more! Oh and I love Matt and all his deliciousness!
My favorite character may have been Richard! Unfortunately I can relate...I was called 'weiner magnet' for a period of my life in my 20's for a reason!
This is a must read if you are looking for an upbeat romantic comedy b ...more
I rated this a 4.5 but rounded up.
I received this book from the author.
So one day on my FB blog page this awesome author asked us to post a teaser. Well I read it and cracked up. I said i need to read this. Shew as sp kind and said as soon as it is finished she will send me a copy.
OMG was this book a great read!! I totally cracked up multiple times because Gen and her sisters/friends are sooo me and my fr ...more
With a meddling family, an oblivious ex-boyfriend, a hopelessly geeky co-worker/blind date, and a crazy best friend how could it be anything less.
Artsy, recently scorned and single Imogen (Gen) is to be the Maid of Honor in her twin sisters wedding along side her cheating bastard of an ex-boyfriend, Brent, as the best man. Her family has decided that she needs a date for the engagement party to make sure that she won't go back to Bre ...more
I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a f ...more
The book opens up with Gen tossing out the remainder of clothes, left by Brent, her cheating (ex)boyfriend of two years, down onto the snowy ground below. She then closes the door on the empty apartment and what was once a happy home with marriage and kids in the future...UNTIL....she came home one night and caught Brent screwing "Stripper Barbie". I laughed my ass off at the name, even though m ...more
First warning: I was given this in exchange for an honest review, and I would like to apologize to Niecey Roy this was supposed to be finished forever ago but ugh *shakes fist at life* Life got in the way :( but with that said, I believe in giving honest reviews even if I was given a book, cool? cool!

Now...more

5 out of 5 stars!!!
Imogen also known as Gen is one of my all time favorite characters I have read in quite a while. Gen is not your typical girl; she is an artist and has some serious heart and good upbringing behind her. She is the girl with her natural blonde hair but wants to throw a little hot pink or blue in there. She is a twin and she is crap at relationships. Can’t find a man who will treat her right and not make a fool out of h ...more
Gen is such a crack up, but she really does it deadpan. She has her share of instigators too: Gen's twin sister Lexie, their long time friend Roxanna & even Richard (nerdy nerd from Gen's work). I was almost going to yell at my kindle- to tell Gen to get away from Richard already. I don't want ...more

"I wasn’t searching for Mr. Perfect anymore – what I wanted was normal. Plain and simple."
Imogen (aka Gen) caught Brent, her boyfriend of 2 years, cheating on her in their bed in a very porn-worthy position with his ex "stripper barbie" on New Years Eve. After her sisters’ attempts at finding her love and a date to the upcoming wedding, the blind dates have just hit the all time low. Getting “dumped” in a crap Itali ...more
This book is about Imogen "Gen" Gorecki who just got out of a relationship with her cheating boyfriend Brent. Gen tries to move on but is having a hard time because her twin sister Lexie is marrying Brent's best friend Jeremy. Gen's meddling family members swear she is still in love with Brent and insist on setting her up on various dates. I for one could not stop laughing at Gen's date with ...more
Imogen aka Gen for short caught her boyfriend cheating on her with his ex -"stripper Barbie". Swearing off men, she moves out and on with her life. The problem? Her identical twin just got engaged to her cheating ex's best friend. To make matters worse, her sisters decide she need he ...more
The secondary characters actually rounded out the story and gave it extra dimensions that a lot of NA just doesn't possess. It was character and plot driven but the sexiness did not lack for it. It had plenty of sexy. This story will have you sn ...more
For me personally it could have used a few more of the laugh out loud funny moments that you have near the beginning of the story and I felt that I wanted Gen to keep up with high level snark we got in the first few pages but with that being said contemporary romance fans w ...more
Premise of the story had potential, but dragged way too long on topics that didn't really need to be dragged out - thus leaving us with very little interaction with our H and h.
I wish there was more Matt & Gen and less Roxi, Lexi, Catherine, Tony, Richard, Brent, Jeremy, cheating ex-lovers, etc. I felt like it took away the focus of Gen & Matt's love story and got repetitive quickly.
