BOOK REVIEW by Michelle :

For all the things I cannot say in my review, for fear of spoiling, I can say my fave quotes without saying who said them.

All I will say is Tim has a MAJOR TOUCH DOWN with this little novella. It screams genius with what he has done in it. Some may understand more than others as he has done something clever in his writing.....but I can’t say as it is early days!

Yes, that is Potter’s ex girlfriend Sophie, draped all over Potter on the book cover. Stunning, beautiful with a body that any guy would worship, not to mention her looks. I was very nervous when I saw this cover. I was like, what is Tim up to? Nothing surprises me....*cough* with Tim’s writing. He is very unpredictable. Which technically means, I get surprised a lot..so I think that is a confusing statement..ha!

I loved we got to know Sophie in this novella. We get into both Sophie and Potter’s heads. I wanted to not like Sophie, but I absolutely loved her. In a way she has Potter’s snark. I hope she sticks around..........?? I think she would be a lot of fun. 

See, how hard it is writing this review...I have to keep pulling on the brake. I have to admit I did see an awesome plot idea when reading this novella, would be hilarious...but...who knows where Tim will go? I just sit back and enjoy the ride.

Awww.....Potter is/was/is??? a romantic under all that cranky......bless.

I bow down, I worship the parts of this book that made me jump up and down and send emails to Tim. 

Tim had me grinning from ear to ear with his writing, I was laughing out loud, I was yelling at the computer screen....ewwwww...he does love his gorey icky bits too, they literally drip from the pages.

But, that is Tim, and that is why we come back over and over to read his next instalments. For the life of me I cannot understand why this series has not been snatched up by a publisher.....one of the wonders of the world..hehe!

I am rather chuffed that I got me a dedication, I am Michelle Auricht, I am not bragging, I just love Tim did that. I have adored Potter from the start, I saw his potential when some thought him a jerk, I always knew he was going to make me laugh out loud, sometimes to the point that the Mutley laugh would take over.

From one pond to another, thankyou:D

I love how much Tim truly cares about all his fans. Tim has listed all the fans that put their name down on his FB page in the front of the book. I love that Lynda his wife got the spotlight shone on her, aka the ‘Hacker’. I always tell Tim that a woman is always right....hehe!! Well done ‘Hacker’, I so want some outtakes. 

I'm like Precious from Lord Of The Rings.....I'm all bug eyed and grabby, grabby for the next installment, my fingers are wiggling, wanting........no pressure Tim..hehe!

See how I managed not to say anything about the story....cause it would spoil , here come the quotes.



FAVE QUOTES: 

“But I shot you,” he gasped, looking at me as if I were some kind of ghost.

“And it fucking hurt,” I hissed. “So don’t do it again, it’s not very nice.”





So why should I go and get myself into a heap of shit for her now? I attracted shit like a cow’s arse attracted flies and I didn’t need it, not now.




They were nothing like the skimpy, silky numbers I had seen Kiera wear. I pulled out another pair. “Jeez, I never knew you wore parachutes!”




“Somebody help me – there’s a man in here sniffing my knickers!”




“Jesus!” I groaned. “What was that for?”

“For breaking up me and Marty!” she shouted.

“Who the fuck is Marty?” I said, rubbing my bollocks.

“He was my boyfriend and we broke up because of those letters you sent me. He thought I was sleeping with you.”

“You were sleeping with me,” I tried to remind her.

“I don’t ever remember having sex with you!” she shouted.

“You really know how to boost a man’s ego,” I shot back.

She raised her hand as if to strike me again, and I snatched hold of her fist. “Once is enough, sweetheart.”





“I couldn’t give a monkey’s toss if she looked like the Elephant Man and had an arse the size of King Kong – although she does have the sweetest cheeks I’ve ever seen.





"You’re still a scruffy-looking arsehole.”

“I’m not scruffy-looking,” I said.





“Get the fuck out of here!” I gasped.

“Shut your filthy mouth! You’re in a graveyard, for fuck’s sake!”
...... “But you just said the ‘F’ word too, didn’t you?”

    1. Aww thanks Sarah, you are always so kind:D

      These books are just a whole pile of twists and awesome Potter dialogue, with lots of banter between certain characters that I just love getting my fix of. I mostly laugh, but Tim can make ya cry until he slaps you in the face with another curveball, throw in some icky gore, some action scenes with heads being ripped off and it's goodtimes:D

  2. I haven't read any book of Tim O'Rourke yet but I have read many good things about his work and the covers of his books are gorgeous. I think are the most beautiful covers I have ever seen so far. Your post is amazing, KIERA HUDSON SERIES sounds really good and Potter seems very interesting character.

    1. Hi Diana,

      Potter is funny and cranky. Tim has a great time with his storyline. He keeps you guessing and when you think you have worked something out, he throws a curveball at you:D
