So what does Renae have to say? Let's read....
I don’t pretend to be a ‘serious’ writer. I don’t mean that I’m a writer that doesn’t take her work earnestly. I mean that I don’t write real, angsty, serious stories. One of my first reviews on Goodreads about my debut story Loving Jay, was that it was a piece of fluff.
I took this as a compliment. *grin*
Life’s too short to be tied up in knots and agony. I’d rather be tied up in stitches and laughter. So there are a few things to remember when reading this book.
1. Don’t forget your sense of humour.
2. Don’t read in public unless you don’t mind others staring at the “crazy person in the corner.”
3. Keep your distance from others while reading, because you may spit as you burst out laughing.
4. Check to make sure the floor is clean before rolling around on it in laughter.
5. It’s fiction.
(Bonus hint: if you have a weak bladder, pack a change of undies).
If you’re feeling down, or if you need a good laugh, then pick up Shawn’s Law. You will be taken on a topsy-turvy adventure with poor, poor Shawn. You see, accidents just happen around him. To him. By him. To people near him. In Shawn’s family, they don’t call it Murphy’s Law, they call it Shawn’s Law.
Poor, poor Harley. I mean – all he wanted was to date Shawn, and instead he gets to meet a whole bunch of people he never expected. Like the doctors at the Emergency Department and all the nurses in the hospital. People like the repo guys and the auto-breakdown guys who know Shawn’s name and address off the top of their heads. And who can forget Shawn’s family?
Now, you may be put off by the term “several deadly Australian animals,” but let me reassure you – no one dies. No one loses a limb. No one loses an eye. So yes, there’s a snake – but that’s what anti-venom is for, isn’t it? And yes, there is a spider bite – but you will find out that no one has died from a redback spider for decades. And yes, there is a… Well – maybe you should find out for yourself. Because there are also several cute and cuddly animals – like quokkas. And majestic animals like Carnaby’s Cockatoos. And if you don’t know what either of those are, then you’re in for a treat!
So now, the most important questions?
1. Is it HEA? Of course.
2. Does anyone die from the attacking wildlife? No.
3. Will I laugh? I believe you will.
4. Where can I buy?
Blurb: Shawn is single, twenty-nine, the full-time career of his Alzheimer’s-stricken mother and a frequent victim of Murphy’s Law—although his family call it Shawn’s Law. Other than caring for mum, his day consists of painting nude men and spying on the guy who walks his dogs along the street every day at four o’clock. When he takes a spectacular fall on his front steps, who is there to witness it other than the man of his dreams?
Harley doesn’t believe in Shawn’s Law – but he soon changes his mind.The two men make it through a memorable first date and Shawn’s sexual insecurities to begin a relationship stumbling toward love. But when Shawn’s Law causes Harley to be injured, Shawn is determined to save Harley’s life the only way he knows how—by breaking up with him. Not once, but twice. Throw in a serial killer ex-boyfriend, several deadly Australian animals, two dogs called Bennie, a mother who forgets to wear clothes, an unforgiving Town Council, and a strawberry-flavored condom dolly, and Shawn’s Law is one for the books.
I was SO lucky to get an advanced copy of this book! I am a huge Renae Kaye fan so of course I was excited to read this! It's not often a book can make me laugh until my sides hurt. The last book to do that was Tell Me it's Real by TJ Klune. Shawn's Law is HILARIOUS. Side splitting. Pure entertainment. A book about: Is is bad luck or is it good luck? Either way, it's freaking funny. Renae went all out and I can easily say this is the funniest book I've read this year. I highly recommend you read this book!
Renae will be giving one luck fan a copy of Shawn's Law! ON RELEASE DAY! This contest will run until March 6th and the winner will be notified via email (So check your spam folder)
