About this ebook

Mia James almost had it all…

At thirty, she was a successful photographer with the craziest but most loyal friends in the world and a wonderful life in a picturesque village. The only things missing were a husband and a brood of kids. Love happens when you least expect it, her mom always said.

An appointment to show her photography portfolio brought her front and center with Jack Barnes, a gorgeous, successful Manhattan businessman. Mia was smitten, and they married less than a year later. Unfortunately, the marital bliss she craved never showed up.

Jack, the controlling absentee husband, had a secret: someone else was occupying his mind and bed. Mia had no idea until a chance sighting revealed the real Jack with his mystery woman.

Payback was definitely in order and way overdue. With a little help from her friends and a lot of Merlot, Mia was on a mission to take Jack down.

With hilarious speed bumps, hiccups, and crazy calamities along the way, Mia’s ridiculous plot for payback turned into a chance for unexpected friendships and real love.

Payback and a Bottle of Merlot is a free book and is the first romantic comedy novel in this contemporary romance series. Like Sisters is a laugh out loud series of best friends, hot guys and the right amount of steam to have you anxiously waiting for the next book.

Note: There are no cliffhangers in this series, but since the characters carry over, the books are best read in sequence.

I wasn't impressed by the writing. Either a sheltered adult wrote this, or a teenager did. Who says, "scumbag?" All that buildup for maybe a page of him suffering. I only read it till the end to see what horrible tragedy would befall him, and it was so disappointing.

I loved the idea of this book but I just felt it dragged and then wrapped up super fast like a hallmark movie. I could have done without some part and wanted more details in others. I also didnt like how Sasha was portrayed to be so strong did whatever the girls said.

HaHa ..really enjoyed it. Miss Bria always has 2 heroes for the heroine to choose from.I wish we had that chance in our lives ! Yup...i think Mia has a drinking problem n she should have confessed to Aaron about her n Max. Start on a clean slate. Well thats my take.Thank you
