Book & Author details:
Vibrizzio by Nicki Elson
Published by: Swoon Romance
Publication date: April 21st 2015
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Lyssa Bates doesn’t need a man. Not when the world is fully-stocked with double A batteries and a wide array of options in Amazon’s health and sexual wellness category. After yet another failed relationship, the twenty-six-year-old investment analyst is convinced that real guys aren’t ever going to live up to her expectations—so why should she bother with them? She’s determined to keep her dating life purely electronic…though she occasionally fantasizes about Hayden King, the delicious new associate she just got partnered with at work.
While Lyssa manages her romantic risks by deleting men from of the equation, the ever-charming Hayden protects his heart by diversifying his love life across multiple women. As the two young professionals travel together around the country for business, their flirty working relationship develops into a close friendship that hurtles toward something more. Between hot tub confessions in Baltimore, an accidental kiss in Dallas, and an all-nighter in Chicago, Hayden proves himself to be better than any fantasy.
Writing wasn’t something Nicki set out to do; it just sort of happened when she realized writing reports was by far her favorite part of her investment consulting position. She traded stock allocation and diversification for story arcs and dialogue and now weaves her creative writing time in with the other activities of her busy life with her family in the Chicago suburbs.
Nicki writes with two goals in mind: #1 to keep the characters realistic, even when their circumstances are anything but, and #2 to make the reader feel. Watch for her new title Vibrizzio, coming in 2015 from Swoon Romance. Her published works include Three Daves, a light-hearted romantic romp through a 1980s college campus, Divine Temptation, a romantic novel of angelic proportions, and Hans & Greta: a Twisted Fairy Tale Novella. Her published short stories include “Sway” (available as a single), “I Don’t Do Valentine’s Day” (part of A Valentine Anthology), and “Impressionism 101” (included in the debut issue of Insatiable: The Magazine of Paranormal Desire
I was in a horrible slump. Didn’t want to read anything. No favorite book, no new release, nothing. I knew I had to read Vibrizzio for the tour and get around to it at some point. I didn’t want to read it at first because I don’t like reading books during slumps due to me tending not to like them just because of my bad mood.
But I read reviews and heard the book was hilarious and light, so I thought to heck with slumps, I need to read this book. And here I am, fixing to tell you all how much I enjoyed it and how relaxing it was to get over my slump!
I was agonizing about starting it but already with the first page I was giggling in my seat and smiling so hard my mom was trying to figure out what I was reading.
Vibrizzio had the perfect amount of laughter and seriousness mixed together where I couldn’t put it down till I knew what was going to happen with Lyssa and Hayden in the end and I am happy to say that Elson does not disappoint!
I will admit that Lyssa made some choices that frustrated me too much but her overall decisions made the ending much more sweeter (:
I hope this review will persuade you all to read it and laugh out loud at Lyssa and her witty comments as much as I did and let others know about it as well!
