Release day: Sweet Nothing
Today is the official release of Sweet Nothing by Alison May (paperback and ebook, Choc Lit). Here’s the blurb:
Independent, straight-talking Trix Allen wouldn’t. She’s been in love once before and ended up with nothing. Now safely single, Trix is as far away from the saccharine-sweet world of hearts and flowers as it’s possible to be.
Ben Messina is the man who broke Trix’s heart. Now he’s successful, the only thing rational Ben and free-spirited Trix see eye-to-eye on is the fact that falling in love isn’t part of the plan. But when Ben’s brother sets out to win the heart of Trix’s best friend, romance is very much in the air. Will Trix gamble everything on love and risk ending up with zero once again?
Alison dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:
I’ve always loved romance stories. From Harry meeting Sally, to Mills and Boon, to Buffy and Angel—I’m a sucker for a good love story. But I’ve also always wondered what those perfect romances would be like in real world. What happens when you bag your perfect romantic hero? What if it turns out that he’s much better at romance than he is at love? And what if there are some guys where the opposite is true—those men who just aren’t skilled when it comes to wooing or flattering but might be the sort of hero you could actually build a life with? Thinking about those questions was what led me to Ben and Claudio, the brothers at the centre of Sweet Nothing. They’re two men who could scarcely be more different. One of them is an ardent romantic, but might need to learn a thing or two about real life. The other is an arch rationalist, a mathematician, who understands numbers and logic, and absolutely knows that romance is just an illusion. They’re both hopeless cases in their own ways, and both potential heroes as well—will either of them be able to learn enough about matters of the heart to find true love?
