Sequel to Claustrophobic although you don't have to have read it before this one. 5 star romcom. It is frequently laugh-out-loud funny although it has only a nodding relationship with reality. But seriously, if reality is your bag, why would you be reading any romantic comedy? ...more

Had a great time with this one. Entertaining and funny with romance. It would be the dream to have a work environment like that. Plenty of spiders, glitter and pranks. Gonna have to go back and read Chloe’s story, just given myself spoilers on that one. Loved it, looking forward to reading the next one.

Shammed, by Bernadette Franklin, is an appealing romance which involves pranks, lawyers, spiders, and a spunky red-head. At her previous job as a legal secretary, Alice finds her boss has extreme anger issues and takes it out on her. Working with Mr. Kenton allows her physical and psychological wounds to heal while it encourages her to prank others in her circle of peers.

Loved it

I found the author originally via her magical rom coms and fell in love. When I found out she wrote non-magical ones, I couldn’t resist trying them. This is the first one I’ve read and I’m not disappointed! While the magical ones add a bit of extra flare, this was still an excellent book, and I loved the characters and the hilarity (and can appreciate pretty spiders even though they scare me).

So much joy!

Another great story of love and a kick ass woman! Shammed is just so good. The main character started as a minor character in a previous novel. She comes into here own in this book. This story involves so many pranks and they are priceless. I have had so much fun reading this wonderfully imaginative story. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. Read it and feel good too.

Cute and Sneaky

I really like these characters. They were all fun and quirky and cute. They had a lot of diversity in that their stories and personalities weren't all flowers and sunshine. I can't wait for the next book in the series!

Fun romance without disturbing details

Nice boss and coworkers and loveable skydiving heroine with sense of humor and pet tarantulas.
I wouldn't want to be in same state with hate filled one named Boomer.

Such a cool novel

I am already a huge fan of RJ Blaine, this was a stumbled upon accident I could not put down. If you love comedy and romance you will love this book.
PS if you have problems with large spiders be warned there are several.

DNF. Dialogue and plot just dragged. Not funny, it was like a comedian who says the punchline first.

A perfect

Snarky wonderful irreverent romance novel. Don’t read these if you want depth, just dive into the shallows and enjoy a happy ending with no smut.

Spiders, shenanigans and sky diving? All of which make for a wonderful story with snarky humor and romance galore. Read and enjoy.

These books make me happy.
They are not for reading in overly sceptical and realistic moods, they are for reading for fun and to feel good.
I snickered on the parts regarding toilets (because washlets with glowy parts, button panels, and automatic lids are more of the norm around here even in some public restrooms), had a sad sigh on the topic of refurbishing an entire big dream house in 3 weeks for just half a million (I know people who can't find a way/people to do it for almost 2 years already)
