Depending on how astute a reader some of you might be,this storyline or i should say love story might also be stranger & zanier than you/readers think as you read along. Will try not to give too much insight about this book because it might be a hit or miss -- a little thing that i wanted to point out:- the blurb says Sasha has it all but when you end up reading the story that's NOT true. Then there is Jac who is 50ish and says that she has never ask anyone out on a date in her life,but calls herself a 'stud' And last but not least,the depth to which there is this unrelatable,unbelievable and even laughable quick hook-up that the author consider as a 'relationship' in this story that also leads both Sasha & Jac to move into together after only knowing each other for a few weeks....Is this for real

    4.5 Stars. While I am a Bramhall fan, I’m not much of a rom-com fan. I was hoping to enjoy this read but I didn’t expect to like it as much as I actually did. In fact, I almost have nothing to complain about. This book was everything and more than what I was hoping for. Sasha is an amateur scriptwriter and massage therapist, living with her mother who is recovering from cancer. When her script Nightingale, wins a competition to be made into a movie, her life will never be the same. After reading 4.5 Stars. While I am a Bramhall fan, I’m not much of a rom-com fan. I was hoping to enjoy this read but I didn’t expect to like it as much as I actually did. In fact, I almost have nothing to complain about. This book was everything and more than what I was hoping for. Sasha is an amateur scriptwriter and massage therapist, living with her mother who is recovering from cancer. When her script Nightingale, wins a competition to be made into a movie, her life will never be the same. After reading a few reviews that mentioned that the book Nightingale, also by Bramhall, would be tied into this book, it gave me the kick I finally needed to read Nightingale. Nightingale is a heartbreaking read but very well written. You don’t have to read it before reading this book, but I enjoyed knowing more about the movie they were making. Really the only complaint I have in this whole book is I would have loved just a little bit more of the movie. I wanted to see it released and how it did, that sort of thing.The rest of this book was pretty right on for me. First of all the characters are really great. Not just the two mains but the strong cast of secondary characters that often would steal scenes because they were so well written. This book had great witty dialogue. A few things were a little over the top, but in a funny way, not a roll your eyes way. I struggle with comedy in books, but it was not the case here. I found myself laughing out loud especially at the scene when Jac tries out a new snack food at Fleur’s house. When it comes to the romance, I was very happy. Maybe it was a little fast, but it didn’t bother me at all. I really enjoyed them as a potential couple. Plus the sex scenes were all well done. Maybe it was because the characters were older, but Bramhall let’s her characters actually communicate. It was a nice breath of fresh air and I really appreciated it.I do have to give a small warning. While I would call this a rom-com, I did need tissues at one point. While it was sad, it was also very touching and really well done. The book makes you feel which I always believe is a good thing.I’m very happy with this read. As I mentioned before, this book is better than expected. I absolutely recommend this to romance fans. Once again Bramhall delivers. An ARC was given to me by YLVA for a honest review.

All three have been completely different from each other and the only thing they have in common, really, is great writing. If I’d read more by Bramhall I would have recognized Nightingale as a highly rated 2014 novel by her. (It’s in my “want-to-read’ pile now and I don’t know if it would have added to this or not.) Anyway, back to this novel. I adored the relationship between Jac and Sasha and the complete lack of manufactured angst. They're both well-rounded characters who struggle through their flaws and weaknesses. Along with great chemistry, there’s good communication, lots of banter and wonderful secondary characters to add to the fullness of the story. Sasha’s mother is a scream and her antics defy logic or good sense. But it’s not all sweetness and light, there’s pathos too.I thoroughly enjoyed reading this novel.Book received from Ylva Publishing for an honest review.

    One thing you can always count on with an Andrea Bramhall book is good editing and proofing…and, of course, a good story.

Of her traditional romances, and the only one that’s coming to me off the top of my head is ‘Just My Luck,’ I prefer this one. I actually found the humor funny and loved, loved, loved Sasha’s mother. We all need a Fluer in our lives.One thing that confused me is the mention of humor in ‘Nightingale’ throughout this book. Maybe I’ve lost the plot or maybe it’s been so long since I read it that I’ve forgotten, but I do not remember that book being funny in the least. It dealt with some very heavy, very real issues, so perhaps the darker stuff was just more memorable part of ‘Nightingale’ (for me, at least). A small slice of me is glad to have read it before this, and a part of me really wishes I could go into it with new eyes after reading ‘Lost for Words.’ Unfortunately, I have read it and as wonderful as it was, once was enough. Overall, ‘Lost for Words’ is a decent romance with good humor. There is a tissue moment, but it was handle in such a way that it was hard to feel truly sad.

The forty-five-year-old Sasha has moved in with her mother Fleur again after, her Mom was diagnosed with cancer. She's supported her during the treatments and the recovering. She is content with her life, working as a massage therapist in a day spa clinic, together with her best friend Bobbie and in the spare time writing screenplays. But Fleur and Bobbie have other plans for her future.Jac Kensington, co-owner of Kefran Media Limited, works as a film producer. Since she was abandoned as a baby, she has troubles to trust anyone, with the effect of having little personal life. When she gets her hands on a new screenplay, she has no idea what changes in her life will come. First I have to mention the secondary character Fleur, because she is a really special woman. After fighting cancer she has nothing to lose and the only thing she want’s, is, that her daughter Sasha will be happy in life and job. She’s unique, sometimes crazy, silly and full of shit (in a positive meaning), you have to love her.The romance between Jac and Sasha was wonderful, without a lot of angst and miscommunication. The characters are well developed and grown-up women, the chemistry was great, the love scene beautiful and the dialogues good. The story is realistic, convincing and like in real life not only sunshine and happiness. They have to take some hurdles before the HEA.It’s an easy and very enjoyable story, just the right thing to read in this hot summer. I recommend this to every romance fan.My rating 4 starsThanks to Ylva for receiving an ARC for an honest review.

    Sasha Adams is a massage therapist living with her cancer survivor mother. She's content with her life but she wishes to become a screenwriter. Her life changes radically when her mother and best friend enter one of her works in a writing competition and she wins it. Suddenly she gets a scriptwriting contract and a love interest in Jac Kensington, her new boss. Jac is a self-made businesswoman with abandonment issues and a predilection to never grow up. But when she meets Sasha, her world turns Sasha Adams is a massage therapist living with her cancer survivor mother. She's content with her life but she wishes to become a screenwriter. Her life changes radically when her mother and best friend enter one of her works in a writing competition and she wins it. Suddenly she gets a scriptwriting contract and a love interest in Jac Kensington, her new boss. Jac is a self-made businesswoman with abandonment issues and a predilection to never grow up. But when she meets Sasha, her world turns upside down and both women have to decide if they want to keep their old ways or take a chance at love and face together come what may.It's hard to describe this novel. The cover and its rom-com labelling might suggest a lightness that's only half truth. As the blurb states, 'a bittersweet rom-com' is a better description, bittersweet being the operative word. Additionally, it's a romance in a broader sense of the word. There's not only romanic involvement but also maternal love (or lack thereof), friendship and unrequited love. You can truly say that love is in the air.This novel is anything but 'Lost for words'. It shows the author's deep convictions and deals with issues such as abandoment, illness, aging and death. Ms. Bramhall pulls no punches, she's not afraid to tackle such difficult issues. The story is sometimes hilarious, sometimes sad. It will make you laugh and whenever you least expect, it'll punch you in the guts. It's no coincidence that the winning script referred in the book is 'Nightingale', a self reference to possibly Bramhall's most woeful novel. However, this is a more optimistic story, like it should be in a book about love. My only criticism is that at some points the book stretched too much and less words could have been more.The characters are well written and realistic. It's refreshing to see leads in their late forties, early fifties. Jac, also known as 'Pan Pan' for her similarities with Peter Pan, is an incredibly complex character who very slowly opens up to reveal her real issues behind her carefree attitude. Sasha's unselfish personality and maturity is the perfect balance to Jac. Together they have great chemistry. The supporting cast is rich in layers, specially Sasha's mum, Fleur. She's a character that could have been written by Robin Alexander, with her quirky lifestyle and hilarious behaviour. She brings much of the lightness of the book. Overall, a very good bittersweet book about love with endearing characters. Worth a read. 4.5 stars.ARC provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.See all my reviews atwww.lezreviewbooks.com

Since I tend to love Bramhall’s mysteries more than her other works, not that I’ve read everything by her yet. As I was reading along my expectations were being mostly meet, an enjoyable enough book but not loveable. An odd thing occurred along the way, though, I began to get quite into the story, unable to stop reading, gobbling it up. There’s a certain amount of humor, but this isn’t a humor book; there’s a certain amount of tears, but it isn’t an angsty book (the tears are for . . . well, they weren’t from laughing too hard); certain amount of annoying ex, but barely – in the end this was a much deeper more enjoyable book than I expected when I started it an saw it was about a spa worker, her fellow spa worker friend, and Sasha’s ‘pothead’ mother.Bobbi, that friend of Sasha’s, did a certain something behind Sasha’s back (and said it in a way that I knew I’d find irritating if it was repeated too much in the book, and it did seem, in the beginning, like it would be a reoccurring gag – the one friend constantly telling the other ‘I have a confession to make’ whereupon she would spill some horrible thing she just did – but for various reasons, that didn’t become an irritating reoccurring gag, though it did pop up a few more times). That certain something hinted at in prior sentence? Entered Sasha’s script into a film competition (well a script competition) being run by a film company. And Sasha’s script won.That’s one point of view in the story – Sasha Adams, 45 year old Sasha Adams of many careers, and sometime secret scriptwriter. There are two other important people who ‘enter’ things through Sasha (well others, but two ‘main’ others) – Sasha’s mother (Fleur), and Nips, Sasha’s mother’s cat. Pothead mother? Well, Fleur, you see, had a cancer scare about 5 years ago, a serious one. And ‘weed’ is one of the things Fleur uses to combat the still occurring pain. Also she wears tie-dye clothing and went to Woodstock.The other point of view, meet much earlier than I’m letting on, is 50 year old Jac Kensington. Director, producer, and co-owner of the film company based in Manchester (where Sasha also lives and works) that is/was holding the scriptwriting competition.And, unless I missed something, that’s the point of views in the book – a 45 year old and a 50 year old. Both full-fledged lesbians. Who live and work in Manchester England. I quite like the age of the main characters. *nods*Right, so – from Jac’s side of things come: Mags & Sophie, the other two co-owners of the film company (which had a name like Keffan Media or something like that), and Vanessa – the ex-girlfriend of Jac’s (the 50 year old Jac’s 25 year old ex-girlfriend who opens the book still Jac’s girlfriend, short lived, though, that state of affairs would last (technically, to be really accurate, at that point Jac was still 49)). The story, as maybe hinted at already, is about: 1) Sasha having yet another career change, as in becoming a paid scriptwriter; 2) Coming together of Sasha and Jac; 3) The family interactions of: a) Sasha and her mother (and to a certain extent her best friend Bobbi); and b) Jac and her chosen family, best friends Sophie and Mags; 4) Complications of aging; 5) Mean cats; 6) constant mention of both Sophie and Mags having significant others, but never actually seeing these women (like Norm’s wife in Cheers; or Frasier’s brother’s wife on Frasier – heard about, never seen), even when you’d expect them to be there (group party; occasions when people come together to help others – the kind even random strangers would show up to help at – but not the significant others for no given reason) – seriously, is this something of an attempt at a ‘hidden’ humor gag like thing, on par with Norm’s wife, Cliff’s mother, Frasier’s brother’s wife (why the heck am I channeling Cheers right now? Though technically that Frasier thing was only on Frasier)? That’s a serious thing, by the way, that last point. If there was anything about this book that I found . . . less than excellent/perfect/whatever, it was the missing ‘significant others’ part that built and built and made me annoyed. It’s probably one of those things only I noticed (or not), and only I got annoyed about. But . . . I did notice. *shrugs*Right, so, another enjoyable book read. Unexpectedly: loved it beyond all expectations (see: overuse of ‘unexpected’), and became teary-eyed beyond any expectations (this is not a book I expected to get teary-eyed about).Rating: 4.8888August 7 2018

    With few exceptions I'm a pretty massive Bramhall fan. This makes my 11th book from her that I've read. And when the story started out pointing towards one of my favorites, Nightingale as being a part of 'this' story, that made me really pay attention. I've read that one several times over the years and listened to it a few times as well. The voice actress for that, Zehra Jane Naqvi, is absolutely positively brilliant.

I was looking forward to hearing about Charlie and Hazaar but that particular arc took a back seat to the main story here. I've no fault with that really, just that I would have liked to have seen some sort of conclusion to it since it's such a big part of this story. And that's about all the negative I have really.The book has plenty of funny moments, a handful of sads, some good feels, and a few times you just want to cut a .... err... ex :) You get the picture, lol. All in all though I thought it was highly entertaining and paced well enough to really suck you into the story. Which is the hallmark of a great author. Secondaries are so well done in this that they're barely secondaries. Especially Sash's mom and her BF Bobbi. Although I would have liked to have seen Bobbi get a little bit of a nudge of her own, shrug, I can only nit pick I guess. I liked it all that much :)I really think a lot of folks out there are really going to like this one.

    I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this story. Perhaps its the British humour that I could relate to, or the scene stealing mother and her embarrassing antics for her daughter. Previously I have preferred this author's detective stories, but found myself really enjoying this slap stick humour. I also liked that the story focused on 50/45 age range instead of 30 somethings trying to find themselves. All the characters were entertaining and the story engaging that I found it hard to put down. A I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this story.

    Andrea Bramhall seems to be honing her craft with every new book. I’m a big fan of her Norfolk Coast investigation series. Lost for Words is not part of that series and is a standard lesbian romance book. Or is it?The lead character Sasha Adams is an amateur writer of lesbian-themed screenplays.

Ms Bramhall Andrea Bramhall seems to be honing her craft with every new book. I’m a big fan of her Norfolk Coast investigation series.

She started off by rewriting the stories of existing movies to make them less clichéd and predictable and therefore more engaging. It’s a case of the author’s creation mirroring her own work. Ms Bramhall has also examined the tropes of lesbian romance and found them wanting. Too predictable and some of them are very annoying, also not very realistic. Of course, the reader of a lesbian romance still wants escapism with a little glamour and a happy ever after (or at least a happy for the moment) ending.Somehow Lost for Words delivers on all the expectations plus throws in a little extra. I loved the side story of Bobbi and Sasha’s relationship. It was bittersweet and all too relatable. Sasha’s Mum was a great example of tragi-comedy – I dutifully both laughed and cried.I loved the way the romance was handled. Instant attraction was tempered by their work situation and Sasha’s home circumstances; but there were no false obstacles placed in their way. I really liked the handling of the malicious-ex-who-tries-to-undermine-the-relationship trope. It really exposed that tired old chestnut and I’m sure will have many readers silently cheering. So many times I’ve yelled in my head – or even out loud – “Why don’t you just ask her?” Situation resolved. Thanks, Andrea Bramhall for showing us how adults deal with that situation. Even drunk, grieving adults.I both enjoyed and appreciated this book. It wasn’t the sexiest or most erotic book I’ve ever read, but it was warm and funny and immensely satisfying. I can unreservedly recommend it.Note: I received an advance copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.

    You never know what will come next from Ms Bramhall; romance, old school English mystery, overseas thriller.

Her latest, “Lost for Words’ is a traditional romance with a lot of the author’s humour showing through, but also an emotional and heart-breaking sub-plot which had me in tears as it reached its conclusion.Unusually there are three main characters; Sasha the author who hides her manuscripts, Jac the self-made movie producer who wants to produce Sasha’s script, and Sasha’s pot smoking and mischievous mum, Fleur. Each have strengths and weakness, each has a journey, even though Fleur’s may be short, and it is great to have the cast set in their 40’s and 70’s, dealing, despite the light-hearted romance, with real life issues. Secondary characters are strong, even the vapid Vanessa plays her role, and their inter-relationships and dialogue are often hysterical.The primary plot is a traditional as you like, with the not quite lesbian U-Haul relationship, but the deeper sub plots of unrequited love and the impact of being a carer for an ageing parent give this a most unusual feel for a romance. Despite the high-speed love affair and the quick transposition from hidden author to successful script writer, the story is completely grounded by the boredom of work at the spa, by the reality of the estate, and of course most of all by Fleur’s illness.It reminds me of a Beryl Cook painting, for those who know the artist.. (that may be an English reference - google her) with real-life people in real-life situations but full of life and hilarity.I enjoyed the light-hearted romance, the frequent humour and the deeper and most touching relationship between Sasha and her mum. Good to read something a little bit different.

It started slow for me, but about 40% in I was hooked. I consumed the final 60% all at once. I couldn’t put it down. Not going to lie, I cried near the end.

I enjoy that Bramhall writes characters that you could actually know. I respect authors who write realistic characters and work to make them relatable to readers. It feels like Bramhall does this with ease. She always has characters I enjoy. Reading this one made me want to reread Nightingale for about the 15th time. I am a re-reader; I love to read books over and over. This one will for sure be going into the favorites with a re-read in the future. May have to wait though, still feeling a little raw from the first read

Depending on the quality of the book, this can take the form of highlighting favourite lines or sections, or putting in notes that consist of angry rants. The reason that this book only has four stars instead of five is that it ended up covered in both highlights and my vitriol! First the high points: while Sasha is pretty cool, Jac is awesome and utterly swoon-worthy, "Her tall, lean body beneath the expensive business suit and the lilac tie. Her silver-grey hair, cropped close to the head on the left and worn almost to shoulder length across the centre and right-hand side gave her the air of both experience and having not lost her edge." (I also have a note elsewhere that just says "Jac is a dote"). After some very well written simmering tension they have sex, which as I mentioned already is very well written. Not only is it really hot, but the author manages to make it realistic (and a lot more varied than some other lesfic out there), include some excellent checking in/consent moments and also create a lovely playful equal but also challenging give and take dynamic between Sasha and Jac. Oh yes, how could I nearly forget - I'm again just going to directly insert my kindle note here because I think it covers everything: "Yay, safe sex!"Another massive plus was that the romantic pair actually communicated (shock, horror!) We've all read novels where the break up that happens just before the end is caused by a half heard conversation and one party leaves without talking to the other, right? While Sasha and Jac are by no means perfect, they do avoid that particular cliché. So, with all these positives, why only four stars? Firstly the emotionally damaged lesbian with a tragic past who is a player because she can't trust anyone trope reared its ugly head again and made my bang my head against a metaphorical wall. Not only that, but it was clumsily tied in with constant Peter Pan references and it just did not work for me. You know in House of Cards when Francis Urquhart/Underwood turns to the camera to speak to the audience to explain his motives? Yeah, it was kinda like that but really cringe-inducing. I prefer a bit more subtlety. Secondly, on their first date, Jac who is supposed to be cool and smooth picked up Sasha in a limo and wearing a tux! That was a bit too teenage boy/American prom style for me. I won't list all my issues so the final one I'll share is just something that struck me as strange; the author used one of her early novels as the basis (name, plot etc) for the screenplay that Sasha wrote in this novel. I know authors frequently recycle/cannibalise their own work but generally not published work. It came across as a weird plug. Sooo, in short, after this long review: this is a very good book that has some flaws but it's worth your time and money.

Said character plays a major part in this book and, as usual, I just found her irritating - self referential author: it is obvious that the film ‘nightingale’ which plays a central role in this work, is based on Bramhall’s book of the same name. And at one point (early on - I’m conscious of spoilers) characters discuss the themes and layered meaning and unappreciated depth of the work...I just found it really took me out of the book, as did each subtle call back’- head hopping: in multiple instances I found it difficult to work out who was speaking. Partly this was because...- ...the characters were underdeveloped. Certainly not 1 dimensional - but not richness and under-their-skin ness either. Which was compounded by...- instalove and insta friendship To be fair to the last two points though, I didn’t really like any of the characters - which may have influenced my views. But characters have to be written well enough for you to determine you don’t like them, and these were so...I’m conscious that I’ve probably made this sound worse than it is... I did give it 3.25 after all... there is a - fine - story in there. But that’s all it is.Kudos is in order for making the leads a bit older. And having them have conversations rather than the usual ‘break up over nothing at 75%’ trope...Overall: fine enough but I wouldn’t be rushing out to buy it unless you’re a hardcore fan of the author

By night Sasha creates screen plays. Bobbi submits one of Sasha’s screenplays into a competition to be made into a film and wins. Sasha’s mother Fleur really is the star of this novel.

Some of us will become care givers to our parents in their latter years yet Ms Bramhall shows us that while it can be a trying experience if we allow it, it can also become a closeness and bonding experience if we allow it.While making the film version of Sasha’s script she meets director Jac Kensington. They meet at a perfect time in their lives for love to find a home.As I have only read Ms Bramhall ‘s “Norfolk Coast Investigation Series which definitely leans into the dark side of human nature I was surprised by the lightness and humour of this novel. Andrea Bramhall is definitely not a one trick pony.4.5 stars

Completely worth every moment of your time. The build up to Sasha and Jac falling into each others arms was fantastic and I was glued to the page. The chemistry between Sasha and Jac was amazing and the sex scenes… Wow! I was reading one of the sex scenes on the train home and I was blushing the whole way.I hadn’t realised at the time but Andrea Bramhall’s other book Nightingale is actually the book that Sasha writes and it’s the story she wins the competition with. It’s not a requirement to read Nightingale first but I know you’ll want to read it after. I know I will be heading to the Ylva website to download it straight away after I finish writing this review.I really loved how much time was given in the book to Sasha and Jac as couple. I don’t always enjoy when an author ends the book once the protagonist’s have gotten together but this book really allowed for the reader to get to know them better as a couple.Andrea Bramhall is fast becoming one of my favourite authors. Her book Just My Luck is constantly on my re-read list and I think this book jumps into that category too.Wonderful read. 5 stars.

When her friend Bobbi secretly enters her into a scriptwriting competition it looks as if her life may just change for the better. Jac runs a media company and is on the lookout for great new pieces of writing to film and promote. She never lets herself get emotionally involved - but will she make an exception for Sasha?This is an exceptional story of two women who find something in each other that completes them. It is funny, romantic, highly emotional and scorchingly hot. The love scenes are off the scale and I’d be wary of reading them in company without a fan to cool you down! But it is the attention to detail and perfect characterisation that really stood out for me. I knew these women. I wanted to know more about them. At one point I felt everything they felt and couldn’t stem the flow of tears. And there in the middle of it all I came across the most beautiful sentences that make me gasp. I loved this book and wish I could give it 10 stars - it’s that good.I was given this ARC for review.

Unbeknownst to her, Sasha’s script was submitted to Jac’s film company and they want to film it. There is instalove, or at least instant attraction, but the story does move quickly over just a few weeks. Some things were telegraphed early, such as Fleur’s situation and Bobbi’s mid-story actions. Vanessa was almost a caricature. Despite its flaws, I enjoyed reading this. It’s always a plus when the main characters are over 40. Fleur was often crass, but I still enjoyed her character. She was the comic relief for much of the book and reminded me of a friend’s mother who would ask me for dope whenever I visited. The four main characters all have their own stories to an extent, which provide insight into them. Bottom line for me is that I would read this again.I received an ARC from Ylva for an honest review.

Ms. Bramhall doesn Andrea Bramhall is a brilliant author who has already created some fantastic and award winning books in her writing career, but with her newest book, ‘Lost for Words’ she has reached a new high. I chose to read this book because I had already read several of her other writings , and figured I would enjoy her newest romantic comedy. Little did I realize what an emotional and glorious read this book would be. Yes, it is a romantic comedy, but at the same time it is so much more. Ms. Bramhall doesn’t just pull on your heartstrings with this story. She grabs them and uses them in a tug of war that I can promise you she will win. She will have you laughing loudly one minute and a few pages later reaching for tissues to wipe your tears.The story revolves around Sasha who is living with her mother to help her after she recovers from a medical condition that has left her needing assistance around the house. Sasha is happy and settled in her life as a massage therapist, a shy, self conscious screen writer, and helpful daughter. Her mother Fleur, and best friend Bobbi feel she deserves better in life though, and secretly enter one of her scripts in a writing contest. That one action changes the lives of most of the characters you will meet and come to love . It definitely changes the life of Jac, the co-owner of the movie company that is running the script contest. Bobbi’s life will also be changed as well, and Fleur…well, Fleur is a story all by herself. You have to read this book if for no other reason, to get to know Fleur.I love the fact that Ms. Bramhall has cleverly woven elements of the fairy tale ‘Peter Pan’ into the story. This technique creates an almost magical feel to aspects of the story. You will quickly recognize Jac as Peter, but I will let you figure out the comparison of the remainder of the characters.I give this book my highest recommendation. If I could give it ten stars I would. You must read this book! And Ms. Bramhall, if you are reading this, I have two things to say and ask. Number one, Fleur is Awesome! Number two, could we possibly have a story for Bobbi sometime in the future? Pretty please with a little pixie dust sprinkled on a very special cake?

    3.5 stars. There's a lot to like in this book but for some reason it didn't hold my attention.I liked that the main characters were older, grown-up lesbian romances are more rare. I very much enjoyed the side characters, who were well developed. The story to me just plodded along and I never got hooked, and I kept picking up and putting down the book.

It's bit of a side plot and didn't seems to be wrapped up well. I'm not sure how to improve but something's little off. Overall, this is a great romance lesfic!

Lost for Words is possibly even funnier than Just My Luck and a wholly satisfying read from beginning to end. I highly recommend it.The characters are all beautifully and vividly drawn, easily lovable other than the few who are not meant to be cheered for, and the relationships between the characters are fun and heartwarming, the kind that you aspire to have or are thankful for if you have them in your own life. Sasha and Bobbi, Sasha and her mom Fleur (who steals the limelight in every scene she's in and often hilariously so; a priceless character to be sure), Jac and her colleagues, all have these rich, loving and complicated relationships that ring true and are easy to relate to. Jac and Sasha have a visceral connection from their first interaction and it only grows from there on multiple levels; their friendship and collaboration is a beautiful one. I got attached to the characters and wish they'll somehow appear in another story so readers can follow them around some more. This is the kind of book that will have you laughing out loud frequently and unexpectedly; if you've ever wished for karma to come and bite someone who's done something terrible, you get a front row seat for that here. The view of the entertainment industry behind closed doors is so specific I wonder if the author has either worked in it or seen it from behind the scenes enough to be able to paint it like this: warts, divas, opportunists and all.There were so many laughs and when the gut punch of drama hits, it hits hard in this book; it's easy to get emotionally invested in the characters and what happens in their lives. The ending is a good one although I was reluctant to let these characters go; the relationships are great, the humor abundant and the warmth of humanity and goodness of so many characters was refreshing to read. A truly moving story while also evocative and inspiring; also the characters are older than in some lesfic which makes a nice change to read.Fans of Bramhall's Norfolk series will find Lost for Words a much lighter read and fans of Just My Luck will likely feel right at home in this story with Bramhall letting loose her sense of humor once again and pulling the reader into this highly entertaining and satisfying book. Also there a nod to the Norfolk series cleverly incorporated into the story that made me smile; it's something author Jae does and if Bramhall has picked up the habit it's another thing to look forward to and in her writing. I hope Bramhall writes more books like these in the future to add to her catalog of stellar storytelling; she's proven yet again that she can do comedy and drama and mystery all with equal skill.I received an advance reading copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

I was sincerely Lost for Words.Lost for Words is the story of Sasha Adams and Jac Kensington. Sasha is a bright woman, who works harder than she should as a massage therapist while taking care of her mom who’s in remission of cancer. She also manages to spend a lot of time with her best friend Bobbi, since they are both working together. Once all her day-time duties are over, she loves to hide away into her own bubble and write scripts who rarely leaves the safety of her computer. As much as she loves writing her scripts, the idea of one of them being turned into a movie is a dream she never dared believe in. Jac is a great businesswoman, film producer, and director who debuted in the movie industry with her best friends’ years ago. With time, their short movies turned into amazing successes, which allows Kefran Media Limited to host a Facebook contest to get the best script there is and turn it into a movie. One of Sasha’s script is sent by her best friend and her mom and it catches the attention of Jac and her friends/business partners.Can Sasha handle the pressure of all her dreams about to come true?Andrea Bramhall did more than a fantastic job with her latest novel Lost for Words. Her amazing talent as a storyteller is obvious in this novel even more than in her previous ones.Between the pages of this story lies the secrets of how most amazing romance book should be in my opinion. It was honest, cute, intense at times, some parts were fun, others were harder to read without holding your tears in (but not the angsty kind of tears). I still cannot get over the wide range of emotion this book got out of me. It was a feel good and cry your heart out at the same time kind of story and I enjoyed it more than I could ever explain.I admire how important the non-primary characters are in the story so that even when you are getting involved in Sasha and Jac’s interactions, you still get hilarious moments with Bobbi, Sasha’s best friend and Fleur, her pothead of a mother.I loved that Bramhall doesn’t wait for half the book to get the romance started. It’s great to watch both characters find each other and learn to love, trust and respect one another. The easiness of how their lives merge together was sweet but still a realist possibility.I get bored at times with books when the writer spends more than half of the book getting characters angry at each other and mentioning 100 reasons why they could never be together, just to get them together in the end, luckily this one isn’t the case. A book like this one seems even more realist, maybe a bit over romanced at times for some readers but I still had an amazing time reading [email protected]**I received an ARC in Exchange of an honest review**
