#Weekend Blitz - #Review - Stuck with Me by Cassandra Piat @cassandra_piat @NeverlandBT

So yesterday on my blog I brought you an excerpt from Stuck with Me. Today I am sharing my review of this charming story.  

About the book

Molly, known for her unflagging optimism and constant cheeriness, is thrilled to win an all-expenses paid vacation to Mauritius. She packs her camera and a few colourful bikinis and can’t wait to have some fun in the sun. Little does she know there’s a catch.

Adam is a journalist on assignment and his mission is to test Molly’s optimism and see how far she can be pushed before she breaks. Surely it can’t be that hard?

What happens when Molly meets the hilariously cantankerous Adam and finds that she can’t seem to shake him? How will Adam successfully complete his task when faced with Molly’s beautiful smile, quick wit and curvaceous body?

As they bicker their way around the island, Adam and Molly realise that there’s more to each other than meets the eye. An unexpected friendship develops between them which soon turns into much more. But what will happen when Molly learns the truth behind Adam’s trip to Mauritius?

A heartfelt, funny and touching story about life, love, and trust.

My Review

I instantly liked Molly she has such a warm and sunny personality that instantly drew me in. To start with I was a bit outraged that anyone would try and trick her. However after a while I have to say I got just as attached to Adam. Their first meeting is lots of fun and definitely sets things up for the rest of the story. It was great to get to know Molly and especially to find out that her life isn't all sunshine and roses. Anxiety issues feature in the story and I thought that they were handled well. 

I really enjoyed reading the story from both Adam and Molly's point of view I always feel that you get a better feel for the characters this way. The transition from one point of view to the other was smooth and felt pretty natural.

The setting for the story is stunning and Cassandra Piat has really set the scene, there were plenty of occasions where I felt as if I was right there on holiday with Molly and Adam. Stuck with Me definitely had me looking forward to seeing some sunshine! Some of the acts of sabotage that Adam dreamt up were funny and I especially liked how Molly handled them. One of the best things about the story was how Adam had to try and keep a straight face and appear grumpy to Molly.  

Light hearted for the most part, this story is ideal for reading on a cold day as it really managed to warm me up with the delightful descriptions of Mauritius. Before I knew it I was half way through and it felt as if no time had passed at all. 

Fun, romantic and charming!

Four stars from me!

Thank you to Cassandra Piat & Neverland Blog Tours for my copy. This is my honest and unbiased opinion.


About the author

Cassandra Piat is a part-time English teacher and a full-time disorganised mother and housewife. She spends her life trying to remember not to forget the 101 things on her things-to-do list, but seems to fail spectacularly most of the time! Whenever she has some free time she’s either with her head in a book, watching a romantic comedy or writing her own romantic comedies. She is a huge fan of rom-com movies and chicklit books. She loves books that make her laugh and leave her with a warm and happy feeling. Some of her favourite authors include Cecelia Ahern, Jill Mansell & Judith Mc Naught.

She lives in Mauritius with her husband, who prefers TV to books, and her three children who keep her on her toes and don’t leave her much free time to sit down and write.

She published her first book What’s it Gonna be? in December 2014 and Stuck with Me is her second novel. She loves writing stories that take place on her beautiful tropical island of Mauritius and sharing the island life with her readers. She is currently writing her third book in her head and hopes that she will soon have time to get it down on paper.
