Today it is my pleasure to bring you my review of Living Your Best Life by Maxine Morrey as part of her fabulous blog tour!
Bee is a girl we can all relate to. She regularly feels unseen, and far too often she just settles. An outsider looking in may think she has it all – a job she’s good at, her own London flat and a great group of friends. And yet, none of it seems quite ‘right’. Her best friend, Luca Donato, is incredibly handsome, wildly successful and a genuinely nice person. Yet, like Bee, he has yet to find ‘the One’. So, when they are both challenged to use online dating as a way to find their ‘person’ they agree. Bee however, is rather less enthusiastic about the situation! What follows is a series of events that may well force Bee to revisit how she sees herself, and how others see her.
I always jump at the chance to read a Maxine Morrey novel, and it was no different when I found out about Living Your Best Life. In fact i’m not sure she can write a bad novel! Bee is a great character, and one I could definitely relate to. So many of us women second guess ourselves, or doubt our abilities, so Bee really could be one of us. Obviously Luca sweetens the novel beautifully, he’s handsome and kind – he’s really rather perfect! All good romance novels require a perfect man for us to visualise (and fantasize about!), and Maxine has definitely achieved that with Luca!
Living Your Best Life is a real ‘feel-good’ novel. I loved the characters and their relationships. It was great to follow Bee, and watch her really achieve her potential, not just in her personal life but in her professional life too. It was also wonderful to follow a male character who really champions women and lifts them up – they are out there and it’s nice to see them out and about in the world of fiction! I am more than happy to recommend this novel to you all. If you love Maxine Morrey, and you love a good romance novel this could be the book for you!
