Babe Driven by Lizzie Chantree #Review #Giveaway #Romance #BlogTour

Could you ignore the world’s hottest rock stars, if they moved into the villa next door?

True love, humour and happy-ever-after. A sizzling romance read full of giggles, sunshine and searching for a soul mate in paradise by bestselling author Lizzie Chantree.

Brand new 2019 version!

Driving straight out of trouble and into paradise! A laugh out loud, contemporary romance read full of entrepreneurial women, powerful men and exotic locations.

Harriet’s crazily successful business idea is under serious threat, and the danger seems to be coming from inside her own family. She whisks her sister and her friends away to an exotic location to try and work out whose side they are on. It’s time to start damage limitation.

When the girls arrive at the glorious villa owned by Harriet’s maverick business partner Nikki, they find a gorgeous band and their sexy lead singer Max staying next door, out to entice their new neighbours into all kinds of trouble.

This isn’t a holiday for Harriet and she can’t afford to be distracted. She has to sell her business idea to the powerful resort owner, the elusive Mr Grant, while she is there, or she may not have a business to go back to. Harriet will have to choose between family and friends, business or pleasure. For someone who stays out of the limelight, even though her new company is the hottest ticket in town, she’s going to have to avoid the front pages of every newspaper if she wants to survive the ride!

My Review:

I giggled my way through reading this book! It is a story packed with humour but also has a more serious side involving potential business deals and family drama.

Harriet has worked hard to develop her business idea, supported by her friend and business partner, Nikki. However, this has involved her working unstintingly and Nikki has convinced her to take a holiday whilst still investigating a threat to their business. Harriet has taken her sister and some of her friends to stay in the luxurious villa which Nikki owns and has lent to them. They certainly didn’t anticipate their neighbours being renowned rock stars who are there recording their next album – and partying!

Harriet is there to entice the resort owner, Mr Grant, to invest in her business but with the hot rock stars, the mysterious Ben and a journalist determined to bring her down, this isn’t going to be a relaxing holiday – and that’s without mentioning the trouble her half brother is threatening! Not only that, but the friends who have come with her sister are a real mix of characters, some to love and others not so much. There’s a secret admirer or two, relatives who are rivals and so much more in this story. Can this feisty and determined business lady take down a blackmailer, reconnect with her sister, maintain the peach with her friends and not be tempted by romance? There’s one thing for certain, she’s going to try keeping her business head on despite all the distractions and temptations!

This is a fun contemporary romance with great characters and serious family issues for more than one family in the story. It is a fun, holiday based story with a truly alpha female lead – she may seem to be quiet but she’s also astute, determined and able to play others at their own game and win. There are plenty of twists and surprises as the story progresses. I particularly enjoyed the blackmailer being taught a lesson and the unexpected romance once they’re back home again. It is the first book I’ve read by this author but I certainly hope it won’t be the last! It is a great read and one I have no hesitation in highly recommending.

I requested and was gifted a copy of this book and this is my honest review after choosing to read it and thoroughly enjoying doing so.

      I’ll keep my fingers crossed that you win as this is a great contemporary romance – especially if you like the female lead to outwit her male protagonists! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did when you get to read it.
