The Trouble with Romance (The sequel to The Trouble with Playing Cupid) by Tamara Philip

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?

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.

The Trouble with Playing Cupid
by Tamara Philip

One New Year’s Eve, shy singer, December Brown drunkenly texts her talk show host pal, Trace Randall, about her long time crush on the aloof actor, Tom Elmswood. Thinking the two celebrities would make a cute couple, he unwisely decides to play matchmaker… in front of a live studio audience.

Things start to go downhill when Tom admits he’s never even heard of December before. Now what seemed like a sure fire hit quickly becomes a flop. Will these two lonely hearts ever make a love connection or has this cupid’s arrow missed its mark?

REVIEWS

I laughed and cried along with the characters. I fell in love with the story line and the Characters. I Love Tom! He was the most down to earth man with a heart of Gold! December AKA Dee banter and sweet talk had me on a emotional roller coaster.I would love to have friends like Clarissa and Terrence. This book (genre) is a book that I have never read. Tamara wove magic when writing this and also has made me become a fan of Romantic Comedies. Awesome!!! …April Nichols Baker

Despite having placed the book down due to being busy, as soon as I picked it up again, I had no problem being wrapped back up into the story. The characters are able to be connected with and each have their own quirks that give them life. The tone of the book is so casual that it feels as if you’re right in the thicket of the story’s environment. Additionally, the tone complements the characters very well as it emphasizes the thoughts of each of them that makes their situations feel real. Anytime a book can make me use my imagination to paint the picture, it’s doing a darn good job…. Kelsey

Who doesn’t like a gritty love story. The romance plays out to be true to imagination with a real flare for an intimate setting and flawless character portrayals, the character ‘Trace’, being my favorite. The authors writing style sucks you in to the pages and I found I couldn’t put it down.

I was actually late for an appointment yesterday as I was so engrossed reading this book on the train that I missed my stop lol. I hope Tamara brings a lot more romance to our lives, and I will definitely be watching out for more books to come by this talented new author….

Tom heals the rift with his mother…Weekend Writing Warriors…#8sunday…9/14/2014

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 Tom and December discuss his phone call with his estranged mother.

“I think so. I think I’m still in shock though. My mother was always this elusive figure in my life and now she wants to be part of it. I didn’t think I’d be so forgiving, you know? But everyone deserves a second chance right?”

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