Review – Hard Hats and Doormats

Hard Hats and Doormats by Laura Chapman

My Review:

I’ve been a fan of Laura Chapman’s writing for a while now and realized that I never got around to reading her debut novel Hard Hats and Doormats.

It’s an entertaining read and I love the way Chapman created Lexi’s world and draws you into it. I felt like I was experiencing everything alongside Lexi and was rooting for everything to work out in the end. I loved the way she wrote about Lexi’s relationship with her smartphone Harriett, because in this day and age aren’t we all a bit cell-phone obsessed?

I adored the connection between Lexi and the man in her life and enjoyed the way different themes were touched upon throughout the novel. Great women’s fiction novel about life and love that I highly recommend.

My Rating: 5/5 Stars

I believe I purchased an ebook copy during a limited time $0.99 sale (I bought it a long time ago and finally read it!). All reviews 100% reflect my honest opinion.

About the Book

Title: Hard Hats and Doormats

Author: Laura Chapman

Published: December 2013

Book Blurb: Lexi Burke has always been a stickler for following rules and procedures. As a human resources manager for a leading Gulf Coast chemical company, it’s her job to make sure everyone else falls in line, too.

But after losing out on a big promotion–-because her boss sees her as too much of a yes-woman––Lexi adopts a new policy of following her heart instead of the fine print. And her heart knows what it wants: Jason Beaumont, a workplace crush who is off limits based on her previous protocol.

While navigating a new romance and interoffice politics, Lexi must find the confidence to stand on her own or face a lifetime of following someone else’s orders.

Who says nice girls have to finish last?
