Looking for a fun new read? Today I’m excited to tell you about a fantastic new novel for all those chick-lit lovers out there! It’s called Queen of the Universe and it was written by one of my new favorite authors Geralyn Corcillo. Before reading this novel, I’d only read her novella All Summer on a Date. [Check out my review here.] After reading this novel, I must say that I am in love with Geralyn’s writing and can’t wait to devour everything she’s already written and will anxiously await her future publications too!
Queen of the Universe by Geralyn Corcillo
Book Details: TV writer extraordinaire Lola Scott is about to lose her show because she STILL hasn’t cast the role of Sam Destry, the dark, brooding bounty hunter. But then Arlen Black walks into her office and he is PERFECT for the part. One problem, though. He’s not an actor there to audition. Nope. He’s the handyman Lola hired to renovate her historic Hollywood house.
No problem. Lola gleefully offers him the dream job of a lifetime. No dice–the stoic recluse in a tool belt wants nothing to do with Lola and her show. But Lola doesn’t give up. She goes after Arlen using every trick she can think of, but her Hollywood machinations just bounce right off him.
Why can’t she get a bead on this guy?
A scrambling Lola is about to get the ax when Arlen surprises her socks off and signs on to play Sam. She has no idea why he changed his mind, but she doesn’t have time to stop and think about it. Not when she has to get him camera-ready, suppress her totally unprofessional attraction to him, and hide from the studio exec, her million-dollar leading lady, and the world at large that her ace-in-the-hole leading man is really just her sexy handyman.
The stellar pilot garners media accolades, causing Hollywood gossip to sink its claws into Arlen. When one paparazzi photo threatens to destroy everything he holds dear, Lola finally understands why he upended his life to do the show and save her career. Now she’s got to move heaven and Earth not to save the show … but to save Arlen.
My Review – Queen of the Universe
This novel had me entertained and captured my attention from page one. I could tell it was going to be a fun read!
I absolutely loved this novel! It was filled with humor, drama and love. Geralyn wrote two fantastic leads with a wonderful supporting cast. A heart warming, fun story about learning to navigate life and above all things, love. This novel had me laughing the whole way through and even made me tear up a bit, but in a good way. Geralyn’s writing is charming, hilarious, and sheer perfection. This novel is a prime example of what I always hope to see in any romantic comedy I pick up. A story that entertains you, captivates you, and has you flipping the pages to find out more. A story about life and love and the importance of family. I completely devoured this novel but was so sad when I finished because it was over! I can’t wait to read the next novel!
‘Its not being with the ones you love that really hurts.’
5 stars for this fabulous novel. Can’t wait to read her next one!
