I really lack in origianl titles...:(
Did Someone Order Room Service? - Charlotte Phillips

As can be seen on : The Accidental Reader

 

So here is the deal- 

 

This one is just another romance novella, like many others written before and after. 

 

Plot-wise, it does not stand as unique. 

 

Fun-wise, it's good, but once I finished it I moved on without a single though. 

 

I can say now, 2 months after I read it, that I hardly remember reading it. it did not affect me at any way. 

 

Maybe I'm harsh. Maybe not. 

 

I love romance books and novels very much, and I expect them to invoke some sort of feelings from me. Be it 'it was bloody aewful' or 'I freakking loved it'. Here? No such luck. All I can say is that it's okay. 

 

So why 3 stars? simply because I'm on the fence here. Sometimes I give 3 stars because a book had equally  frustrated me and delighted me. Here it's simply because I felt nothing though the quality is good. 

 

One thing I loved about this book? The writing. I find it really hard to read a book in the third person. It tends to annoy me. Not here. 

 

Which actually says alot. 

 

to summerise: Good writing, Nice sex, Normal story.

This contemporary,fast-paced romantic novella set in a chic boutique hotel is a lovely escapist read if you have a spare couple of hours. The second in the 'Do Not Disturb series' it has plausible characters that experience their worst nightmares and best dreams within the microcosm of hotel life.

Layla a diligent guest services person becomes the very personal assistant to Matt a celebrity pro-tennis star who appears to court the paparazzi but is he really as shallow as he seems? Layla craves 'normal' family life after a less than conventional upbringing. Smarting from her mother's latest betrayal she meets Matt who epitomizes all she despises. Sparks fly from their first encounter and lead to some steamy love scenes.

I liked Layla because she knows what she should do but follows her instincts rather than commonsense. She risks everything for love and deserves to have a happy ending. Matt is likeable too although his finer feelings do get buried beneath his arrogance and self -preservation periodically.

This is an enjoyable read full of witty conversation and genuine emotion.

Your Room Or Mine?
Your Room Or Mine? - Charlotte Phillips

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

Izzy attempts to take control of her life after she discovers her boyfriend is a serial cheater. Izzy reacts to his treachery like any wronged woman would; too much wine, ice cream, tears and much needed feminine solidarity.

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. Oliver doesn't have relationships just brief encounters to placate his libido. He sees the chance meeting with Izzy in the hotel lobby as an opportunity for a no strings encounter.

The plot is interesting and character driven. There is a flirty side to this romantic novella but the sensuality is matched by deep emotion not associated with a one night stand. The ending has a delightful twist which Izzy deserves.
