On Tour and Giveaway: Last-Minute Love by Romi Moondi

What's a girl to do when she meets the Internet man of her dreams, he's better than she expected, but he lives an ocean away? And let's not forget her parents,who are trying to lock her up in arranged-marriage doom...

In this fast-paced story of culture clash and romantic pursuits, there's a big fat Indian wedding, the struggle to keep a long-distance flame alive, and an unexpected mystery man who could set a new course in motion.

All the while, our heroine abandons what was once an all-consuming man-search, which helps her remember the person she used to be, and the person she hopes to become; the history-loving nerd, the hopeless romantic, and the emerging author with dreams of ditching the corporate rat race.

This is the book of living in the moment, making the grand gesture, and putting it all on the line. This is when Romi Narindra comes alive...

Last-Minute Love is book two in the fictional Year of the Chick series. It follows closely from book one, but contains enough detail to be read as a stand-alone.

DISCLAIMER: this book contains occasional F-bombs and mild sexual references; hide your daughters! ~~ synopsis from Goodreads

My thoughts on Last-Minute Love ~~

Last-Minute Love is book 2 is a series. I read book 1, Year of the Chick, at the beginning of the year and loved it ~ it was so hilarious! Read my thoughts here.This book is just as entertaining, maybe not quite as funny, but by this point I have come to know and care about the main character, Romi and I don't really need all those LOL moments. It's still a funny read and I was thoroughly entertained.

I loved this part ~ Romi falls down on the icy sidewalk ~ that part's not funny, this is.... 'A gloved hand in a wool coat reached out to help me up, and for a second I thought it was just like the movies, where some knight in shining armour would swoop in out of nowhere and change the very course of my life. I turned to him as I stood back up. He was practically seventy years old. Welcome to real life.... '

And ... 'the only thing that's better than a guy? Ice cream... '

And ... 'People fade in and out of your life, but they never have to actually leave. And when they do abruptly leave, that just means something isn't being dealt with.'

Romi is getting on with her life and still hoping to find love. And she has dreams of going to Paris. Who wouldn't love to do that? Maybe in Paris, she will find love? But to get to Paris, her first book has to sell enough copies and she has to get her second book written.

I love how this book is a autobiographical-fictionalized story of Romi's life. I loved reading about how she promoted her first book and kept checking her sales on Amazon. She was living that life and writing about it as I and a lot of other readers were discovering her funny sense of humor. It almost felt like I was a part of her story.

By the end of Last-Minute Love, Romi has made some major changes in her life and I can't wait to see what happens next! Hurry Romi, get book 3 written for us!

Come back tomorrow when Romi talks about how this series, that didn't start out as a series, came to be.

About the author

I am Canadian, and here are some strange personal facts:

-I wore denim-top-to-bottom in high school (there is a direct inverse relationship between how much denim I wore and how few tongues were launched down my throat at school dances...or anywhere in high school at all).

-A homeless lady in New York once told me "You're just a bitch on vacation with no money!"

-I always hated those insufferable couples who would cuddle and make out on the subway...until I became half of one. But now I'm back to being none of one so I hate them again.

The thing I love most in the world is writing. When I first started publishing on Amazon it was my "crazy" humour side (The Book of Awful and NOT Love Poems For Real Life). Since then, everything has focused on my Year of the Chick series, because it's the most important thing to me in the world right now. I guess that would tend to happen, when your writing is inspired by real life, including all the satisfaction and risks that come from that.

My Year of the Chick series can be described as "edgy rom-com," which helps me account for the blunt conversations and mortifying family moments in the book ;-).

Book 3 in the Year of the Chick series will be written and released in 2013; until then I have some adventures to go on!
