    Perhaps it is the fact that the characters in this book are British, or perhaps there are no better words to describe this book - but it was delightfully cheeky. Rory (Aurora) and her daughter Belle (named after a woman's right-to-vote crusader, not a princess, of course) have take...

    Everybody wants somebody to love and to love you back, but once you have been hurt real deep, you might see things differently. You want to depend only on yourself and keep your heart hidden behind a high wall. You can run, but you can not seem to hide when cupid aims his arrow ... I ...

    I really enjoyed reading this fabulous feel good book that made me smile, roll my eyes, cringe, laugh out and well up with tears. Rory was a brilliant character, one that I could identify with in so many ways, the sort of person I?d love to be friends with. I loved that she was a ...

    This book was given to me on NetGalley for an honest review. It was a nice and light reading. Though it felt a bit dry. I didn't find it funny, so I didn't really understand why is a laugh at loud comedy. I enjoyed the main plot. Sometimes Rory annoyed me as a parent, she should ...

    Rory is a teacher and single mum to 16 year old Belle. She has just bought a ramshackle house that is in serious need of an overhaul. Consequently, she doesn?t have time for romance, nor does she want any. Everyone else seems to think that is exactly what she needs and tries to...

    I liked the story, it had a nice pace and was a quick read. The main character Rory is a bit too mild for her own good and more then a bit anti-man. I can appreciate independentness as much as anyone else but she was taking things way too far a lot of the time. While a good read there ...

    3.5* --> 4* Rory has a lot on her plate. She?s just bought a rundown house that will surely make a fabulous home in time. But time is exactly something Rory doesn?t have in abundance. Her job as a teacher is increasingly demanding, not helped at all by the new deputy head, wh...

    4 Smiling and Feel Good Stars! Life is not a fairytale... Rory is a mother to 16-year-old Belle and a teacher. She has no time for romance, and quite frankly, she doesn't really want any - she just doesn't have time for it! She has way too many problems going on in her life rig...

    I don't know why it is given the subtitle 'A laugh out loud romantic comedy' because there is nothing much to laugh in this. The story is more about parenting troubles, teenage rebellion and the challenges of teaching profession. It was a story with great potential, one I would have l...

    Thanks to Netgalley for my copy. This is a sweet heart-warming tale of love and relationships. Rory isn't interested in love, she has enough on her plate with a bossy mother, a teenage daughter, her teaching career and a tumbledown house to renovate. Everyone around her has other id...

    Rating: 4.5 Stars Happily Never After was a refreshing change that I welcomed with open arms from the usual romances I'm used to reading. You know the ones, those scorching hot, fast-paced and instant-lust ones *sigh* I love them. Completely opposite to what I just described, we ...

    I enjoyed this one quite a bit. What I love the most is all the different types of relationships that are showcased in it. There is mother/daughter, teacher/student, employee/boss and friendships. Of course there are a few budding romantic relationships as well which I loved that they ...

    This is described as a romantic comedy and although there was romance and humour in it I felt that it also examined some more serious issues such as loneliness, serious illness, aging and grief to name a few. Rory is a teacher in her 30s who has brought up her 16 year old daughter Bel...

    3.5 stars Certainly a LOL kind of book. Those opening words.. Lol. A quick, fun and easy going chick-flick. It served it's purpose as I started reading it after an interview. Stress buster. But hey, it's as predictable as u can get. You could see the outcome from page 1(ish). Lo...

    This is a easy feelgood read that gets you laughing and crying and then giving your nose a good blow at the end when everything gets sorted out! It follows the trials and tribulations of secondary school teacher Rory, her daughter Belle and mum Sheila, together with best friends Susie ...

    Maybe it is just me, but I couldn't get into this book. I had a difficult time connecting with the characters, especially Rory; whose attempts at being a 'strong, independent' woman became rapidly annoying - putting me off from trying to read the rest of the novel. ...

    Absolutely unputdownable! Thinking about if Rory will ever have a happy ending is one of the last thing on your minds once the strands of this intricately woven story meet its climatic ending. I loved this book. I finished it in 24 hours. I miss the characters already! ...

    I really enjoyed this book. It was an easy quick read about teacher Rory and her teenage daughter Belle. Rory doesn?t believe in fairytale love and Belle is just discovering boys. Rory has a rundown house to renovate and little time for socialising. I could relate to Rory from a te...

    I absolutely loved this book from the first page to the last! As a fellow teacher, I was very amused by the deputy head character who was brilliant at paperwork but totally inept at teaching. I could also relate to the trials and tribulations of an Ofsted inspection and the difficulty ...
