I definitely couldn’t rely on mum or my ugly half-sisters Anastasia and Drizzela (it’s actually Avery and Madison, but I prefer to call them after the ugly stepsisters in Cinderella). To put it mildly, they’re vile.
I am not a homophobe. It’s just that it’s not safe for a pretty guy like me. I mean, it’s like dangling some prime rib eye steak in front of some hungry hyenas and trying to tell them they can’t have it.
His hands find my hair, pulling it back so I don’t vomit into it. ...more
Here’s my review, which has also been left in all the usual places!! 🥰
A very big thank you goes to Laura for a copy of this book in return for an honest review.
This is book 2 in the Babes Of Brighton series but each book can be read as a stand alone.
This book features Brooke, who is a ‘love em and leave em’ kinda girl but when her Nan becomes ill she decides that she needs to find her estranged father.
Along the way she meets Nicholas who is all kinds of wrong for her.......
I read this book reall ...more
Love Uncovered was a nice,quick read but there are also some sad past stories that still affect our main characters bringing some tears to the readers' eyes.I've enjoyed every facet of this story.
Brooke,our heroine,didn't find atractive the taciturn Nicholas the first time they met but now after a little time she can't ignore their over the top sexual tension and she can't run away from him anymore.
You can see their bond growing page after page and see that they are perfect for each other...you
This is the story of Brooke Archer, has casual sex with the men in her life but when she doesn’t see her life going anywhere she feels she has daddy issues and needs to find out who he is, but her mother doesn’t want to give out this information, so Brooke goes a different route.
Brooke and her friends had been seeing the guys from Peterborough and Brooke had been seeing Tom, one of the group, but when she found him in the disable toilet giv ...more

Another great audio by this author. These are always full of fun and mischief and have very relatable characters which I loved although it appears I listened to book three before book two lol. I love this gang of friends and their stories as it brings up some really good memories for me from friends over the years
I have to start this review by saying how utterly ashamed I am of myself. I only discovered this authors works during the summer. I had purchased a paperback of Excess Baggage—Erica and Jack's story—at a signing I attended earlier in the year. I was instantly drawn in by the quirky front covers and knew I had to purchase one.
When I went into the first book, I went in completely blind. I didn't read the blurb, nor did I check out reviews or anythi ...more
4* review by Nicole @ EBR---->
Love Uncovered initially drew my attention because of the ridiculously cute and colourful cover art, but then the blurb got me all intrigued and I knew I had to have this book in my life.
I’ve attempted to sit down and write this review no less than three times since completing the book on Friday (it’s now Sunday afternoon). There are so many facets of this book that sparkle and shine and a few that dulled the romance and beauty of it ...more
Love Uncovered is Brooke and Nicholas’ story. Honestly, I didn’t expect Brooke to be with Nicholas in this book. In my mind, Brooke would pull Tom out of his “man-whore” ways, and they would find a solid connection. That isn’t what happens, and I lik ...more
I loved Brooke she is smart and quick witted but is flawed. I like that she doesn't need to try and be someone else and is ok with who she and doesn't care what others think.
Brooke has never been in love and doesn't know what love is and believes that it isn't real. She loves to party and loves her nan and the occasional hookup and point blank does not do rel ...more
This book sees the story in the point of view of Brooke. Brooke is loud, sassy and in your face, but in this story, we get to see a totally different side to her and see that under all the bravado, she is quite a vulnerable person with a lot of her mind.
Along comes Nich ...more
The story is based around Brooke who basically just doesn't get attached to anyone or anything as she has always felt that she is unloved and unwanted by her family. She finds it hard to let anyone in and get close to her which causes her to go through a string of men to fill her needs with casual sex, none of which helps with her issues with trusting someone. Brooke meets Nichola ...more
The characters in this book are flawed and lacking in a lot of self-confidence and both have trust issues. Brooke has men in her l ...more
Laura has really done well to give the characters depth, p ...more
Brooke is not the relationship kind of girl. She likes to have fun and lots of it. Having had a holiday romance with Tom that rocked her world, she couldn't wait to get back into his trousers when the boys come down to Brighton for a weekend trip. However her feelings for Tom don't feel as strong now when she locks eyes with tattooed hunk Nicholas. Was he always that attractive? Nicholas is a self confessed possessive, jealous type who only does relationships and with Brooke ...more

I really enjoyed Book one in this series so i was always going to read the second book. The story flows well and it was an easy read, It follows on from book one although can be read as a standalone and does not have to be read in order.
Brooke is very much the life and soul of any party she does not do relationships and treats them ...more
Brooke and Nicholas are amazing characters and I couldn’t help but root for Brooke to see what’s right in front of her. Nicholas’s friend, Tom is Brooke’s hook up buddy from time to time and is a complete and utter player. Tom is a big character and out shines everyone with his charm and seductiv ...more
Love Uncovered is the second book in the Babes of Brighton series and the second book that I have read by this author. Love Uncovered can be read as a standalone.
The story line has a unique set up this time around, as we get to see the story through the lenses of Brooke. Who is loud, sassy, and in your face kind of woman. She is not attached to anyone or anything. Nevertheless, this story line provided readers to see a totally different side of her and uncove ...more
Thank you so much @laurabarnard for a #gifted copy of Love Uncovered in exchange for my honest opinion.
Love Uncovered is the second book in the Babes of Brighton series and it is as hilarious and fun and cute and sweet as the rest of them!
It reads as a standalone as it follows another girl from this amazing group of friends: Brooke!
If I'm honest, ever since I read Excess Baggage I have been wanting to know more about Brooke as I found her the most interesting character. So when I realise ...more
Brooke had a tendency to be needy and more clingy than I thi ...more
This story is very catchy and gets you addicted from the first chapter.
I loved Brooke in Excess Baggage (Book 1 in the series) and her story definitely didn't disappoint.
I loved Brooke and Nicholas together as their the perfect mix of angst,cuteness and laugh out loud moments.
They're both from troubled pasts so maybe together they can help heal each other.
One minute I was laughing and the next I had tears in ...more
Yet another super fast read from Laura Barnard! I polished this one off in just a couple of sittings. What I was anticipating to be Brooke and Tom’s book, was not at all what I got! I got something even better! Who knew I would warm to Nicholas the way I did!
Brooke Archer doesn’t have many people in life who she trusts. She’s got her beloved Nan, but her mother is useless and her evil step-sisters are exactly that! Brooke picks up the courage to find her Dad and stand up to him ...more
She lives in Hertfordshire, UK, with her husband and daughter.
In her spare time she enjoys drinking her body weight in tea, cuddling dogs, indulging in cupcakes and chocolate, setting her friends up together (very successfully), indulging in the power nap and reading past her bedtime.
