Snowballs is Tyler Turner’s story, we met him in Balls when he was given his eviction notice on his birthday which was also Christmas Day. This book is the making of Tyler Turner he has been spoilt rotten by his over caring mother but she knows the error of her ways and Dora is determined to make Tyler able to look after himself with some hilarious results.
After reading the excerpt of this book at the end of Balls I knew I would love Tyler's story and it didn't disappoint I spent a lovely after

Another great quick read from Andie M. Long.
I'm loving this series, it could so easily be my family growing up. The characters are just so real, very British and extremely funny. Love them.
Looking forward to the next book.

I really liked this book, it was funny, refreshing and has given me a tip for my own sons lol!!

Tyler is 25 years old and for christmas/birthday his parents give him £1000 to either put in a savings fund or as a down payment for a mortgage and goes on to present him with an eviction notice of 3 months to find his own place and learn to stand on his own two feet. Tyler's mom has had enough of being his servant and picking up after him, so this is the way

Snow Balls by Andie M Long a fantabulous five-star read, this is the second book in the Ball games series, I loved the first book in the series Balls as it was so funny, but this book kicks it in the balls its even funnier. We met Tyler Turner in the first book, he was the spoilt brother of Camille, still living at home at 24 and being waited on hand and foot, that is until he gets a dear John letter from his parents giving him notice of eviction in 3 months. On his 25th birthday of all days. Th ...more

In Balls we met Camille's older brother Tyler, now this is his story. Tyler still lives at home with his parents and has no intention of leaving, why would he when he gets everything still done for him at home? This reminds me so much of my own brother haha! Anyway Tyler's parents have had enough and decide it's time for him to grow up and leave the nest! Tyler has a plan up his sleeve he has no intention of leaving home. He also has

What a fabulous way to while away some time, this super smart, super funny little novella was a pleasure to read.
This is Tyler’s book and I was thrilled that we got to hear his thoughts on what was going on, the author completely nailed telling the story from his point of view.
I giggled my a$$ off at his musing and mutterings, really he had me chuckling so often I had to try and at least look contrite on more than one occasion, perhaps reading in the office wasn’t such a good idea.

Ahh I loved this book!! So funny and Tyler is a hot mess, but I still love him. We meet Tyler in book 1 briefly so I had a feeling going into this Tyler was complete goof ball and of course I was right. It’s Tyler’s 25th birthday and he is expecting the same traditions as every year, but little does he know it’s not the tradition he thinks… it’s his eviction notice.

Tyler has had it easy in life. He is spoiled by his parents, works part time, and watches YouTube the rest of the time so pretty m

This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review.

I've always loved Andies writing style, and this book didn't let me down! I absolutely loved the blurb for this novella as it's a comical storyline. It's the sort of plot which I can see happening within a family, especially as your parents only want the best for you in life. I loved Tim and Dora, as they're the quirky sort of parents who have you laughing with their shenanigans. It was a fun and quirky read.

Snowballs by Andie M Long is book 2 but can be read as a stand alone. Snowballs is about Tyler. A 25 year old who still lives with his mom and dad. He has a part time job at a local store but chooses to live at home where his mother can cater to his every whim. He does not help with chores or cooking. His life pretty much revolves around his gaming systems, with an occasional night out with the guys to pick up girls.
For years Tyler’s parents have been telling him that when he turns 25 he has to

Snowballs is book #2 in the Ball Games Series by the brilliant Andie M Long. I was lucky enough to be a gifted a copy of this book to read for Gemma Reads Too Much.

Andie is slowly making me a Novella convertee, this story was the perfect length to capture Tyler’s story and I adored it from start to finish.

This book is witty and cleverly funny, I was laughing before the story even started when the word ‘Twat’ appears in the Yor

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Overall the book was lighthearted, funny, with romance tossed in while containing a realistic everyday story line.

Tyler Turner's character grew on me and had me laughing not only at his sense of humor but his antics. Lindsey Cross's character is patient, loyal, down to earth and hard working. Both main characters are complex with secondary characters being well developed. The story makes the reader think about what others around us may do every

Knew who this one was about (read and loved the 1st too), but not the how. Really enjoyed this 2nd book from this author. As Tyler is learning one of his first life lessons, he finally comes to the conclusion. And that is that maybe his mother was right. He might actually have to move out on his own.
Tyler is a young man in his mid 20s, and he is used to having his mommy do everything, as literal as humanly possible, for him. From his laundry to serving him food and drinks. Then as promised at C

As a mum of three boys I found myself reading this from a different view point than I have previous Andie books.
I wanted to shake Tyler while laughing out loud at him and hugging him too!
This is my second book of Andie's and OMG she is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors!

Tyler a 25 yr old still living at home with his parents, working only a part time job and playing video games. With no ambitions of the future or to moving out
Tyler's parents have given 3 months to find other living arrangements unless he can convince them to allow him to stay.

I loved the first book in this series of novellas and couldn't wait to read more about Tyler who we first met in book one.

Once again this is a quick read but it has so much going on throughout. Tyler is lazy, he is waited on hand and foot by his extremely patient mum. When she decides she has had enough, on Christmas Day/his birthday no less, he is beyond shocked. The eviction letter is very funny, but what follows is even funnier.

The funniest chapter in the book is one involving alarm clocks, a

I loved reading Snow Balls. It's a quick funny read that will have you laughing out loud. I read the first book Balls but I think you would be okay reading this one as a standalone. I love the Turner family. They are a super funny down to earth family.

Another short funny book in the Ball Games series. This one is about Camille's brother Tyler. The original mummy's boy Tyler is a lazy sod, he does the minimum he has to and all he's interested in are his computer games. When his mum gives him his eviction notice and tells him it's time to grow up and move out, we get to see Tyler change from a spoilt mummy's boy to an independent(ish) man. There are some hysterical moments in this book, the part with the vacuum killed me. Overall a good, light ...more

Book two in the Balls series.

First we had Dylan, now it's Tyler's turn!

Dora is evicting her 25 year old son, Tyler. It's time she stopped coddling him and let him find his independence. He's none too happy about this and so sets in motion the story behind this development in Tyler's life.

We see all sides of him, from the lazy son to the gaming nerd that hides away in his room when he's not working part time.

I love this series for the fact it's real life. Not every man is a billionaire or buff

Not quite as much fun as I thought the first book in this series was, but still a lot of heart. It's hard to get behind a total sloth of a main character, but you end up liking Tyler once he figures out how to be an actual grown up! I loved how his mum pushed him to do all the chores and basically how to be his own person. His relationship with Lindsay was fun too. My only issue was how stinking long it took him to realize he had a great girl right under his nose! But eventually he did and the r ...more

Another fab book in this funny English series.

In Balls we were introduced to Cam's brother Tyler, the lazy almost 25 year old who still lives at home with his parents. The book takes place a few months after Balls left off, on Christmas day, Tyler's birthday, when he gets a bit of shock. After years of having the easy life and his mum do everything for him, he is now being evicted.

I absolutely loved watching whilst Tyler tried to get to grips with everything the real world had to offer. Never ha

This is a coming of age story... On his 25th birthday Tyler Turner is given his eviction notice by his parents... and this novella see's Tyler turning from a lazy spoilt over grown kid into a fully independent man...

There are laughs and errors along the way ... and some things still need to be pointed out by his mum .... but it's a funny, fast paced story which I enjoyed .... and I even wished for more....

In this installment of the BALLS series we meet Tyler, Camille's brother. If you've read the first book you'll know what he was given for his 25th birthday and this continues from there.

This book started off dragging for me. As for the main character was a total wanker. Totally dependent on his parents. But as the the story goes on he redeemed himself. I read this book in one sitting and loved it. It is a book about growth and maturity. Tyler learns to grow up and find the true meaning of love. This is a quick read and I would definitely recommend this book. I'm looking forward to the next book.
