Some Sort of Happy by Melanie Harlow Release Day Blitz & Review


Some sort of Happy is LIVE!


Skylar Nixon is a twenty-seven year old failed actress with no Plan B. After a humiliating stint on a reality TV show crushes what’s left of her childhood dream, she finds herself back in her hometown with no money saved, no college degree, and no confidence she’s anything but a joke—a small town starlet who couldn’t hack it in the big city.

When she runs into former classmate Sebastian Pryce, she can’t believe the hot body and chiseled jaw belong to the shy, troubled loner she knew ten years before. He’s not exactly friendly at first, and she’s heard the rumors about his tragic past, but something in his sad eyes intrigues her. She only wants to get to know him better.

Until the night she wants more—and takes it. (Hard and deep. Twice.)

Are they just two lonely people seeking solace? Or can a disgraced beauty queen and flawed, frustrated man find some sort of happy ever after?

**SOME SORT OF HAPPY is a full-length, dual POV novel, complete with a happy ending.**




3 Stars

I would like to say that this book isn’t bad. It had its moments with me. But… I guess it just wasn’t what I was expecting.
It was really hard for me to get into the main characters.

We have a wannabe actress. That made a mistake on her one and only real try and being in front of the cameras.
Then you have Sebastian with a serious problem. It was pretty severe. To me anyway.
Both the main characters issues just seemed so different and I had a hard time really letting go and fully embracing them… Problems and all.

Skylar’s problem seemed big in the beginning of the book. Setting the tone of how it was going to be with her. (Which I was really into.)
But as I was reading on in the book. Her issue wasn’t really that big. She was more lost than anything.
She was basically coming to a fork in the road with her life.

I was not expecting Sebastian’s problem. I felt bad for him. He really had a hard life growing up. His disorder really ruled his life.
But… I had some issues while I was reading Sebastian parts.
Mostly having to do with his disorder.
Sebastian was a germaphobic. Had a big problem with things. Still did to a certain extent. But when it came to sex and bodily fluids. It all went away.
I found that hard to believe.
And… I kept thinking that every time Sebastian and Skylar were together.

Yes… I felt their connection in the bedroom department. They were pretty hot together.
But other than that… I just wasn’t feeling them.

This book was ok. I didn’t love it nor did I hate it.
It had it’s funny moments.
