Original Cover
My own copy

The blurb:

A heart-warming novel with characters you’ll love, don’t miss this first in a new series for romance, laugh-out-loud comedy and a feel-good ending. Perfect for fans of Mhairi McFarlane and Lindsey Kelk.

I was seven years old when I realized my mother was not a great person… 

Since Savvy was abandoned by her rockstar mother, she has craved a normal life. But after years of financing her boyfriend’s lacklustre career, he leaves her when he hits the bigtime.

Savvy’s friends at the burlesque club where she serves elaborate cocktails encourage her to make bold changes in her life. She soon meets handsome bartender Milo, and begins to plan a future she can be excited about.

But when Savvy’s estranged mother crashes back into her life, her newfound happiness is under threat… will Savvy have the courage to pursue her dreams?

My Opinion:

*Book provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review*

Savvy, works at The Martini Club as a bartender, she has just been left by her DJ boyfriend and her mother is a famous rockstar! Savvy only met her dad when she was a teenager and her mother left when she was 7 years old.

She is ready for some changes and meets handsome bartender Milo on the way. She goes in a real journey, becomes more confident and believes in herself. She is happy! I loved seeing Savvy and Milo discussing their dreams and talking about the future!

However, her mother steps into the picture again and things get a bit complicated. For me as a reader it just added more drama and action to a fun, engaging and fresh story.

I adore the title and it’s perfect for this book! This is definitely my fave book by A.L. Michael so far and I’m really excited that this is only book one in the series, I definitely need more!

A.L. Michael is so talented, she created some vivid scenes, authentic characters and a wonderful storyline. I enjoyed every second of this book!
