#BookReview + #Giveaway Seven Dirty Words by Charlotte Howard @Shy_Tiger






Paige Holmes hides herself in a masculine world in a desperate attempt to remain safe.
Just as she is ready to face her fears and her past, she finds herself torn between Matt Jackson and Vance Ellery: handsome, rich, and safe – or handsome, rich, and dangerous?
Which will she choose?
The one who appears to be the most perfect, or the one who makes her use all Seven Dirty Words?


Maya's Review

To start with let me say that this book felt more like a chick-lit novel than a romance novel to me. I felt it should've had one of those illustrated bubble gum covers with glitter on it.

Paige is a woman who lives in a very male world. She plays rugby, lives with her brother and his mate, works in a garage, swears a lot and hasn't had any dates in a long time. Her parents are the local 'royalty' for want of a better word. I actually liked Paige, her spunk and her don't care attitude. But sometimes her reactions come across as childish, especially around TDS otherwise known as Vance. Vance Ellery is the local celebrity of sorts, older, enigmatic and kinda dangerous. Paige is attracted to him but she also doesn't want to get involved with him. Things get complicated when Matt shows up. There is obvious animosity between Matt and Vance and there is mystery surrounding those two. Matt is safe, and Vance is not, supposedly. Whom will she choose in the end?

This is a good read and one to pack for the beach this summer. Grab your copy.

A couple of hours later, I woke to the sound of male voices chatting and laughing in the room below mine. I stood carefully, straining to hear the topic of conversation. I caught the words “money”, “sport” and “pavilion,” and knew instantly that TDS was in my childhood home.
Suddenly, I yearned to see him again. But, glancing in the full-length mirror by the door that led to my en suite bathroom, I saw that I was in no fit state to be speaking to handsome older men.
Dishevelled was an understatement. My hair resembled a bird’s nest, my eyes had purple rings underneath them, and the stench of sweat and sickness leaked from my pores.
I dragged myself to the bathroom, switching on the shower and letting the water run until it was almost scalding. My body trembled with a cold that only I felt. A hot shower was desperately needed. Before long, clouds of steam billowed over the top of the glass doors, informing me that it was time to cleanse away the illness that stuck to me like goosegrass.


My career as a writer started when I was young, writing poetry and flash fiction for my friends and family. After a few minor successes of having pieces published in anthologies, and later on-line, I decided to have a go at writing a full-length novel. My first attempt was a bit of a disaster, but after years of practice, I finally got that coveted First Contract. Since then, I've written several more novels and short stories, and I don't intend to retire for at least another 50 years.

Charlotte lives in Somerset with her husband, two children, and growing menagerie of pets and can always be found with a cup of tea in her hand. When she's not writing or running around after small people and animals, she loves to eat curry and watch action films.

Charlotte is an active (and vocal) member of the Yeovil Creative Writers.
