(The Misfits Series)
March 10, 2020
Blurb: Chased by a group of angry men. Saved by quite a hunk.
This is not the résumé Ginger Halloway ever imagined having. But thanks to a miracle pill, which makes her size 22 body instantly sexy, that’s what happened.
Yet, now Lance Franklin is showing interest in her, and she can’t figure out if he really likes her for her, or if it’s just because of a bizarre drug.
And her wild bunch of friends, The Misfits…well, they’re always getting her into some interesting situations.
So, yep, business as usual. Except for the guy. What the hell should she do about him?
As for Lance, he believes he’s lucky to have found Ginger. But can he convince her they should go for it?
With some new attention from the hottest guy she’s ever met, Ginger can’t help but wonder…is this all too good to be true?
(CONTENT WARNING: Watch for foul language, steamy scenes, and a pesky yet messy ability to choke on your dinner while laughing. If you’ve come expecting just a lighthearted, slapstick romance, you may not get that here. The author approaches sensitive topics in the best way she knows how. Just be prepared for all the feels to be deeper than usual for this genre – an emotional romantic comedy. No unruly cliffhangers, HEA guaranteed.)
Discontent with her non-existing love life and lacking confidence in her body image, Ginger decides to take part in a drug trial that claims the drug will make her irresistible to the opposite sex. Giddy with the prospects of finding romance, Ginger signs up for an online dating service. Overnight she receives an influx of online requests for a date from prospective boyfriends. Ginger decides on back-to-back speed dating to vet a handful of the potential suitors. Little did she know she would be chased by a lustful mob, which drops her into the arms of hunky rich guy who smells so delicious. Unsure if it is the effect of the wonder drug, Ginger has misgivings regarding the attention this dream guy is giving her.
Marie Lavender writes a humourous meaningful story, in Chasing Ginger. I rarely laugh out loud when I read, I have a very selective humour, but I did find myself giggling at some of the scenes in Chasing Ginger. Marie’s writing made everyday situations sound interesting. Whilst this is a humorous read, it also delivers a meaningful message of accepting ourselves for who we are and to take a leap of faith in our own abilities, like we so often do in others. A truly delightful read.
I give this book 4 stars
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
