Buoyed up on cocktails & escapism

My opinion: When Caroline got in contact with me to ask if I would read and review her book, I knew from just skim reading the blurb that this was a book for me!
Daisy is a 25 year old divorcee who is trying to piece her life back together after it majorly fell apart. When looking for somewhere to live, she meets Xander, a young lad who comes to her rescue. Not only does he help her with somewhere to stay, but also helps her to start having fun and rebuild her life again. At a party with Xander’s friends, Daisy agrees to take part in a game called Forfeit. The game brings out her competitive side (well there is £25,000 at stake, and she’s skint) and mayhem ensues.
I really enjoyed the book from the moment I picked it up. I instantly liked Daisy, although some of her reactions to bad situations (particularly involving her ex) annoyed me a little bit. Although Daisy works as a teacher in a rural location, she still lives a bit of a rock and roll lifestyle in the book and does things that I wanted to tut loudly at! I also really liked Xander. He seems like such a charmer and a gent, I couldn’t help but like him.
This book is a great modern take on what can happen when young people get bored and play a silly game. Only this time we have the power of the internet and social media, along with lots of sex, booze and dance music!
My rating: Four stars
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review
