Book Review & Release Blitz: Enticing Daphne by Jessica Prince
Enticing Daphne by Jessica Prince
Release Date: January 10th, 2018 Genre: Romantic Comedy
It’s easy to stop believing in happily ever afters when the man you thought you’d spend the rest of your life with abandons you right before your wedding day. After that disastrous event I decided that commitment was for suckers. I was young, successful, and in the prime of my life.
I didn’t need a man to make me happy.
Then an unexpected blast from the past came waltzing into my studio and decided I was a challenge he was more than willing to accept. The only problem is that he doesn’t remember he’s met me before.
He’s the ultimate playboy, determined to stop at nothing until he entices the hell out of me. But if Caleb McMannus thinks he can lure me in with his sinful looks and silver tongue, then he’s…probably right.
I had fun reading this book. It left me on a high.
When they run into each other, Caleb has forgotten about
their one night stand months ago. Daphne’s outraged and indignant reaction is the
start of this love-hate relationship. And it’s hilarious. They squabble
about everything yet can’t keep their hands off each other. It’s hot and
ridiculously sweet at the same time.
On a serious note, we get to see a lot of Caleb’s parents
and Daphne’s mother throughout the book. They are truly awful and serve as
constant reminder to Daphne and Caleb that committed relationships are not
Supporting our hero and heroine are a cast of characters who
either have or will have their own books. They’re a fun bunch and get up to wacky antics that I am eager to read about.
The book is fast-paced and I consider it a light read even
with the dark cloud the parents bring to the storyline.
Born and raised around Houston Texas, Jessica spent most of her life complaining about the heat, humidity, and all around pain in the ass weather. It was only as an adult that she quickly realized the cost of living in Houston made up for not being able to breathe when she stepped outside. That's why God created central air, after all.
Jessica is the mother of a perfect little boy--she refuses to accept that he inherited her attitude and sarcastic nature no matter what her husband says.
In addition to being a wife and mom, she's also a wino, a coffee addict, and an avid lover of all types of books--romances still being her all time faves. Her husband likes to claim that reading is her obsession but she just says it's a passion...there's a difference. Not that she'd expect a boy to understand.
Jessica has been writing since she was a little girl, but thankfully grew out of drawing her own pictures for her stories before ever publishing her first book. Because an artist she is not.
