B&N

Camille Turner has returned to her home town of Rotherham to open her new business, a childrens play centre. She said she left to pursue her education but in reality she was driven away by the antics of fellow pupil Dylan Ball, whose parting shot, a photo of Camille in tight shorts, earned her the nickname Camille Toe.
After swearing revenge as she left the school gates behind her, Camille is reunited with a now older and apologetic Dylan who wants to be friends. She’d tell him to go to Hell but he does genuinely seem sorry. Plus he’s also matured into one sexy male. It’s so unfair.
But does Dylan really want to be friends or is it all an act to embarrass her once again?

Tyler Turner has lived at home in comfort since birth. It’s Christmas Day and his twenty-fifth birthday and he’s just about to open his money gift from his parents ..

Dear son,
You are dear to our hearts and we love you. Happy twenty-fifth birthday. However as previously forewarned it’s time to stand on your own two feet. Please take this letter as your Eviction Notice. You have three months until the twenty-fifth of March to secure new accommodation for yourself. Obviously if you decide to purchase, rather than rent, then as long as we can see the sale proceeding, the date of eviction can be lengthened accordingly. We, your parents will assist with this as much as possible. If you would like us to accompany you to look at properties or help you get a mortgage, you only have to ask.
The cheque should cover you for a month or two’s rent or contribute towards legal fees.
We look forward to watching you on your next adventure as an adult.
Much love, Mum and Dad.

As Tyler gets over the shock it becomes a competition between Tyler and his mother Dora as to whether he’ll stay or go. Friend Lindsay is on hand to help him until the offer of a promotion means she may be leaving too. Will Tyler grow up in time to make the right choices or will Jennifer Lambert and his gaming equipment continue to distract him?

 

*Complete with British/Yorkshire slang guide as an added bonus to teach you some new rude words 😉

 

My Rating:

5 hearts

 

Favorite Quotes:

Balls #1

“I’m forty-five, not dead.  Even though I’ve got your dad, I still like to perve at totty.”

 

“For God’s sake will one of you give your mother a grandchild before she pinches one from someone else.”

 

“I know it’s not an excuse but in my defense, I remember nothing about the evening.  Unfortunately, I was as pissed as a fart.  So again, I’m very sorry.”

 

“‘Jack kissed you?  Under the slide?’… ‘Yeah.  In the dark.  I’m obviously too monstrous to kiss in daylight.’”

 

“I realize it’s been a long time since a man went anywhere near my lady parts.  The only pussy that’s had any play lately has been Bob the cat and his carrier bag.”

 

Snow Balls #2

 

“You’d be expected to pull your weight in my house too, you cheeky bugger.  If all you’re offering a girl is your dirty underwear and life at the kitchen sink, you’re going to be single for a very long time, mate.”

 

“Thanks for the pizza… Was alright for a first attempt.  Just a shame the fire brigade didn’t have to come out.  I quite like a man in uniform.”

 

“She does that feat where she pulls her bra off through her dress and out of an armpit.  It’s some feat of magic that’s done really quickly and I can’t totally follow it.  All I know is that her tits go with it.  The heavily padded bra lies on the floor, discarded among her other mess.  I stare at her dress.  There’s nothing under it… I have nothing against small perky tits if I’m expecting them, but my hands.  There were ready to cop hold of those gorgeous bazumas.”

 

“Don’t know half the time son.  Best thing with women is to keep nodding at them in agreement.  If their face changes and goes weird, try a disagreeing look.  Works for me ninety percent of the time.”

 

My Review:

I barked, snorted, and laughed aloud as I read this delightful little duo of novellas.  If I could read fun and naughty little stories like this every day, I would spend the rest of my life smiling.  Andie M. Long is a new find for me, and it feels like I have stumbled onto treasure.  Her writing is crisp, clever, and highly entertaining.  I was an instant fan and was already itching to pick up the second one after devouring the first in this series.   I was richly amused by these humorous tales and enjoyed them both beginning to end.

Early Feedback

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 afternoon with the Turner family loving every word. ~ Our Kindle Konfessions

I’m in love with this novella series and think Andie is onto a complete winner here. I absolutely adore the characters and their witty, British style and slang. ~ Author Beth Ashworth

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. ~ Gemma Reads Too Much

Clever, witty, funny and the language used was just so good. Such light and easy reading to help us forget about the strife’s in life; I wish more books were like this. ~ Blissfully Bookerised

    I need to read these. This could pass as one of my challenge book. I need to fill in the space for comedy.
