The Trouble with Romance

TTWR 3D F

In the sequel to The Trouble with Playing Cupid, December’s best friend and agent, Clarissa Gregory, finds herself as the latest person destined for love.
Love never felt so good for pop singer December Brown and her boyfriend, Hollywood heartthrob, Tom Elmswood. A year later and they’re still crazy about each other. Now it’s their turn to be the well meaning but still pretty terrible matchmakers.

Except, for Clarissa, it isn’t only meddling friends pushing her towards the dashing detective Peter, but fate itself.

Will December convince the cynical Clarissa to take a chance on romance? Or is she right, that love really is just too much trouble?

Also includes Bonus Story, Have Love. Cupid 2 CVR flat front F

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book as always with Tamara Philip March 1, 2015

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Great book as always with Tamara Philip. What I really enjoyed about this book was not only the romance, but with seeing Clarissa’s relationship with her best friend December. They way that she admires her friends reaction to stardom, the conversations they have, dealing with a stalker!!! It just makes the reader feel like they are a part of the friendship and Hollywood.
Enough about the friendship though, this time around it’s Clarissa’s (December’s best friend) chance at love, but as we can all relate to, love is never easy or come at exactly the moment that you’re expecting it. I’d have to say there is quite a bit of suspense in this book and if you’re up for a wild ride, this is the book for you.

As Callie embarks upon the dangerous quest to find this weapon, she must travel deep into the

jungles of India to find a temple only spoken of in legends. The Rakshakari, who are sworn to protect the Goddess, guide her on this

treacherous journey, fraught with demons and mortal conspiracies.

My Review

I love mythology fantasy books and Sabina Khan’s realm of the goddess did not disappoint. Filled with Indian gods and goddesses and angsty teenagers in a gripping, fast paced plot to save the world, what else could you ask for?? Well besides MORE!! good news, this is the first of a series so we lucked out!

I love take charge of your destiny heroines in YA because I want the younger generation to find themselves emulating that sort of mindset to not just let things happen to you, to be part of it all.

I hope the main character, Calli learns as she grows into the story, to not continue to be foolhardy yet brave. Harry potter taught us all that to be courageous and kind is only half of the battle, you need a support system and also to do your research on your enemy and the people around you. So take note, Calli! Trust but verify!

Hey All! I’m back again doing the #8sunday with the wonderful  Weekend Writing Warriors!  I really loved reading the other snippets! This week’s excerpt from my debut novella The Trouble with Playing Cupid shows the scene when December calls up her best friend, Clarissa panicking over Tom taking her out on a date.

“Tom wants this to be our first date,We’re at the movies in Flushing!”

“Ooh, so you’re panicking in the restroom now right?”

“Yes! My heart won’t stop racing and he called me sweetheart and said I looked beautiful and what do I do, Clarissa? Do I run?”

“Why would you run? No! Focus! This is Tom Elmswood. The guy whose movies you made me watch a billion times just so you could memorize his face, remember?”

December nodded, even though Clarissa couldn’t see her through the phone.

“Yes they do. Well nearly everyone. But yes your mom certainly does.”
