Book Review: Just Another Silly Love a special giveaway

By Sara Steven

Two rival radio personalities. Lori Martin is a positive and upbeat DJ, known for playing love songs and dedications. Ben Baxter dishes out no-nonsense, in-your-face relationship advice. Total opposites. Never in a million years would they want to work together.

Fired for losing her cool after her boyfriend breaks up with her on the air, Lori surprisingly receives a job offer for the coveted morning show at the radio station across town where Ben works. She thinks she’s replacing him, but finds out they want to team up Lori with her archenemy to set the air waves on fire and boost ratings. Financially strapped, she can’t turn down the job.

While their on-air fireworks and explosive chemistry make for great listening, what in the world will happen after work hours? (Synopsis courtesy of Goodreads.)

I’ve yet to read a Rich Amooi novel that I didn’t thoroughly enjoy, and Just Another Silly Love Song is no exception! There’s nothing better than two characters who come together in an opposites attract scenario, and that’s surely the case for Lori and Ben. But what’s even better, is discovering that the two main characters who think they have nothing in common, have a lot more in common than they could ever imagine.

I loved the conversations and downright banter between these two. I felt like I was listening in on a real-life radio station’s program, and we get to learn so much more into who Lori and Ben are, not only as a potential couple but separately, as individuals. Lori comes off as an incredibly happy person, who doesn’t let a single thing get her down, while Ben is a lot more cynical and doesn’t believe in happily-ever-after. Yet further reading proved that they meet somewhere in the middle, and perceptions couldn’t be further from the truth. It was fun to witness that discovery on my own, and to see this couple discover that for themselves, too.

While I very much appreciated the chemistry between Lori and Ben, I loved the other characters who are key players, like Lori’s grandma Joyce, and Ben’s grandpa Wayne. It turns out that Joyce becomes the catalyst for a lot that happens within this story, and it was so sweet to see her looking for love with Wayne. It was like getting two love stories for the price of one, and it was interesting to see two paralleling mature experiences, showcasing that it doesn’t matter your age where love is concerned.

Much like in the real world, simple lack of communication and assumption can wreak havoc on a budding relationship, and I wasn’t sure at first what would happen and where this story would go, if anyone would end up together or if all of it would fall apart. But what I saw was the perseverance for all involved, no matter the outcome, and I really appreciated that kind of outlook. There is a lot of spunk and fantastic scenarios and even better characters, that made Silly Love Song a five-star read for me!
