Blissfully Blindsided
Blaze Sonnier has had a bad year. In the spring she made national news while dressed as the Easter Bunny in a brawl where she was trying to defend herself, and earned the moniker Bitch Slap Bunny. In the fall the mother who abandoned Blaze for an acting career showed up on her doorstep, not only injured from an accident but broke and in need of a place to stay. While on a bike ride to purge her stress Blaze encounters one small (in physical stature only) silver lining with a flat tire. The job Caleigh Breaux took after graduating college required her to live as a nomad into her late thirties. Weary of traveling, hotels and being unable to have a real relationship, she made a career change. Though she hoped the change would lead her to meet the woman of her dreams she’s stunned when it happens the night she rolls into the town of Falcon, Louisiana. In her latest romantic comedy, Robin Alexander has woven another tale with her trademark humor about small-town life, family, forgiveness, and falling in love. 78,900 words

    I never read the blurb when the new Robin Alexander comes out because I buy it and put everything else I’m reading at that moment on hold and enjoy myself. What I’ve come to know and love about her stories, her main characters fall into a drama-free relationship pretty early in the book. They have tons of fun together, they are lovers and best buddies and most importantly they communicate. Refreshing, right? Also Alexander is one of the only authors who brings a nice dose of hilarity to the bedr I never read the blurb when the new Robin Alexander comes out because I buy it and put everything else I’m reading at that moment on hold and enjoy myself.

Sex is about having fun after all.So prepare yourself for a fun romance amidst crazy family antics in a small Southern town.f/fThemes: crazy bunny, sisters, mommy issues, wacky hormones due to menopause (I never had it this bad), I’ve got some notes & highlights to give you a sample of the silliness, I would have loved to read this to book club buddie D.5 stars

    I read this while ill - how ill? Well, let's just say that when I laughed, I also gasped in pain. So, obviously, this is a book I'll have to reread some day as I was very much both in the mood for the book but not physically capable of reading the book. mmphs.

    Robin Alexander books are always a safe bet if one wants to have an hilarious and hysterically funny reading. As always, this book is no exception and manages to reach the levels of healthy madness expected at least by me. It is curious to see how the younger characters are increasingly eccentric in each new book, something that was previously reserved for the older ones. In any case, it is a very entertaining eccentricity, whether on the part of the young or not so young.

In any case, it is a very entertaining eccentricity, whether on the part of the young or not so young. Also as usual, the story itself takes a back seat when all the characters converge, each contributing their share. There are really strange situations that become endearing, although some have a really serious background, but the author always offers the most positive part even if the subject is tricky. So, the relationship between the two main protagonists, in this case Blaze and Caleigh, is quite refreshing although somewhat insta lust/ love. But as I say, I think it doesn't matter if their attraction is more or less quick, it just  completes the whole story. Definitely a super recommended reading.

    It was silly and funny in that Robin Alexander unique way. It was “normal” and I liked that a lot. Nothing super angsty and dramatic, no big obstacle in the relationship, nothing but stupid funny stuff and family interactions. The MCs do start dating pretty fast, but for me it look organic and nice, not rushed. Blaze and Ronnie sibling interactions made me laugh. I felt the lack of Frank and Clint, they were important to the lives of those women but they were just a side note. I would have liked It was silly and funny in that Robin Alexander unique way.

I would have liked to see more of Caleigh’s family members, just because, not that it would have bring something to the story. Also, knowing how things turned out at her work would have been nice. I’m a fan of Robin Alexander, and it was a easy angst free romance so it’s a 5 stars rating from me.

    3.9 stars. Some of the best comedy in this newest addition to the Alexander lineup but I didn't enjoy the romance as much. It started up too fast, almost as a foregone conclusion. They're both lesbians and single so they get together and it works out. I like me some more buildup which is pretty much nonexistent here.That cover though... It's taunting me! Why did she stretch the image to fit the cover? Argh! At this point, the covers must be an intentional joke. Surely she can afford a proper gra 3.9 stars.

Surely she can afford a proper graphic designer by now.Otherwise, another solid from Alexander. I'll always be a fan.

    I cannot tell you how many times I've cackled along with the characters in this book. Took me no time to finish this, it was so enjoyable. I always love the craziness that Alexander brings to her stories, endearing kind of craziness. There's an ease I get reading her work, the humour seems effortless, not those try too hard, the kind of intimate humour you share with someone you know well.

And I love it.I will never see menopause the same way again! Oh the shenanigans the sisters get into!Another great read and I'm a happy reader :)

    Simply another great story from Ms Alexander. I could go on and on about the main characters, Blaze Sonnier and Caleigh Breaux and I could also go on and on about the supporting cast but for anyone who has ever read any of the works offered by Ms Alexander you can rest assured each and every character is uniquely entertaining. Having read all of Ms Alexanders works (and there are more than a few) I would have to rate this book in her top five. Laugh out loud, touching story. Wonderful read.

    Another heartfelt romantic comedy.Robin Alexander is my go to romantic comedy story teller. I can't read here books while I am out in public because people would look at me....because I would be laughing so hard. Thanks for another great adventure. I definitely recommend this book.

    Romance based on humor. I guess that's more realistic than other things I've read. I just didn't understand it as much as I wish I could. It's not a disappointing book, but it wasn't really thrilling as some of her book truly are.
