Love Potion Me, Baby!
Ever wonder what is so great about those all natural shampoos? The ones you make yourself, or the ones that cost three times what your normal run of the mill shampoo cost. Suppose if someone accidentally drank it. No harm right? I mean it is all natural, but, what if the consequences were anything but natural?
Suzanne, an out of work chemistry teacher, has a lot of time on her hands. She is desperately trying to find a job but that's not likely with budget cuts and it being this late in the year. Since she's been out of work she loves hanging out with her sister, Christy, and bringing her samples of the all-natural shampoo she has created. Sometimes they meet up where Christy works, Johnston Carmichael.
Brice Van Sant is the CEO of Johnston Carmichael and the stuff dreams are made of. Suzanne has secretly crushed on him since he came to a job fair at her high school. She has often wondered what it would be like to fall in love and marry a man like that. She knows it's far-fetched, the man doesn't even know she's alive.
A jilted lover, a bottle of blue herbal shampoo, and one nervous barista are a recipe for hilarity!!
Brice is getting the scolding of a life time over a romance gone sour by the jilted lover. While Suzanne is trying to get a cup to halve the shampoo to share with one of Christy's co-workers. Just then Brice comes over and asks for a cup of coffee. The barista makes a mistake and hands him the cup with the shampoo. He takes a drink, casually looks at Suzanne and declares himself in love with her.She knows this is crazy and probably a cruel joke of fate but he won't take no for an answer. I won't spoil the rest but you can see how hilarious this will be.
I laughed until I cried. This book has the most colorful and lively characters out there. Once I started the book I couldn't put it down. If you haven't read one of Amy Lillard's contemporary novels, may I suggest this one. I would give this one a rating of PG because there is some content that readers may be sensitive of. It's not racey but I wanted to let you know it's in there. This book was also published in a milder form and given the name The Trouble With Millionares. The story is the same it's just some of the more sensitive parts are left out.
I really hope you will give Love Potion Me, Baby a try. You can grab a copy here: Love Potion Me, Baby!
