#NewRelease (+GIVEAWAY) EXCESS BAGGAGE by Laura Barnard

Hi there everyone! 

Please join me to celebrate today the release of Excess Baggage by Laura Barnard. I've written a review about this book (you can check it if you scroll down a little) also there's a special giveaway in the author facebook page. 

It's a day full of surprises and fun so, let's party!

'An absolute must read this Summer!' - Lady Living in Bookland

'Quintessential British humour; I felt like I was on a girls holiday with my own chicks.'  - Persuing Princesses Book Blog

Stuck in a dead-end relationship, Erica Bennett finds herself daydreaming of her first holiday romance. She was fifteen, it was exciting, new and full of possibilities…and Jack Lawson was hot as hell. That kind of thing leaves a mark.

So when her friends suggest a girls holiday to Luna Island, it’s exactly what she needs to take her mind off things. What she doesn’t expect is to spot Jack – a much older, hotter version of him – across the hotel lobby.

Their attraction is still there and it isn’t long before sparks fly, but fifteen years is a long time. They aren’t the same people they were back then and besides, it’s only a week, right?

Is it a second chance at something real or will their excess baggage ruin their shot at love after they leave Luna Island?

My Review

I've said too many times how much I love finding new authors to read. Also I've said how much I love romance books and comedies. Well, Excess Baggage combine all of that: It's a romantic comedy written by a new author (for me). 

With a fresh and light first person narration, Laura Barnard tell the Erica's story. She's a girl trapped in a relationship where she's no longer happy. This lover boy was her rock, her partner, her friend... but he's not rocking her world. When her mom is about to start her last round of chemo, Erica and her girl friends take a holiday in an island, and for the first time in a long time she's thinking about let loose a little.  

But Erica is one of the most unlucky characters that I've ever read about, because when she's supposed to be having fun and forgetting, she met with a ghost from her past: Jack. An older and sexier version of her teenage first love.

Erica is a funny character. She's lovely and caring, smart and beautiful, but she's always in the most ridiculous situations. It's hilarious! 

Note-to-self: Never buy swimsuits in facebook's boutiques. 

Jack, in the other hand, is taking a holiday with his pals. And when he saw Erica, the one who got away, he knows he's in troubles. He can't offer her a future, he only can give her those holidays. But once they let go and give themselves to love, all the time in the world seems to be not enough. They will want more. 

I loved this book. It was lots and lots of fun. I hadn't expectations about the story, but I was pleased and suprised with the development. The funny situations, the dialogues, the interactions between Erica and her friends (also between Jack and his friends, and between Jack's friends and Erica's friends...) and how the love story evolved was simply great. Hope this isn't the last time Laura Barnard write about this particular gang.

Love isn't always enough to keep to persons together. And Jack is hiding something. Will Erica accept what Jack has to offer? Even with his Excess Baggage? You need to read this book to find out (you will not regret it).
