The Morning After Memoirs by Kate Michaels
Thanks to Laura Stephens from Ago Publishing I received a copy of this in exchange for an honest review.......
When we meet Jess she wakes up on New Years Day with a horrible hangover from the night before beside a man who she realises is not her boyfriend, Ben. In fact, she doesn’t even remember Not-Ben’s name. Jess is a twenty-nine year old who has a dead end job in an office who temporarily moves back in with her parents and the story follows her life and antics throughout the coming year with her friends and how she deals with her new found single life with some funny moments thrown in and memories which I'm sure we've all experienced when we were younger when relationships broke up.
I liked this book and it did make me laugh in parts but even though there are only 12 chapters I felt some of them were a little too long, unfortunately I couldn't warm to the main character and there were some parts that I felt were also a bit unrealistic. The main character was whingy, needy & got on my nerves at times throughout the book especially where she kept referring to every man she met as "not Ben" even up to a year after her relationship had ended with Ben. While I can honestly only say that I liked the book, I do think that people who like to hear stories or watch shows like Sex and The City you will love this book. I am looking forward to reading more work from Kate Michaels.
This is available on Kindle and in all good bookstores.
