Meet the Author

Once upon a time, there was a young girl who wrote sappy poetry about every relationship gone wrong. She had her heart broken many times before the man of her dreams stepped off a big Navy ship and swept her off her feet, promising to never hold her shoe obsession against her.

From that day forward, she swore she'd never again write sappy poetry of unrequited love. Instead, a sucker for smooches and happily-ever-afters, Niecey Roy now writes contemporary romance inspired by her sailor's sexy brown eyes and charming sense of humor.

Imogen is the main character of this story and she rocks it with her blonde hair and pink highlights! The story begins with Gen's memory rehashing the past three months of her pathetic life with Brent. She walks in to find him with another woman in their bed. Her response is to sprinkle his clothing over the shrubbery outside. What a kick-ass way to start a story right?! She thought that she had been in love; but, she didn't know what love was...until she ran into Matt. She's drawn to this new man in her life but doesn't know if a serious relationship is something that she can consider or even commit to. As her sister's engagement starts to unravel, Gen's new lust picks up speed but is she ready? I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book which is the first in her What's Love series. Gen and Matt's relationship was so raw and irresistible; I found myself unable to put it down! I am a sucker for a good romance and this topped my expectations because it also had an insatiable amount of humor references as well. All characters really captivated my attention; however, my heart sunk with Lexie's unhappiness. Since Lexie and Gen are twins, the author makes sure to incorporate her sister's unhappiness with her frazzled engagement often. The author also captures Gen's perfectly descriptive annoyance for Brent who becomes incredibly clingy and unreliable. The one sole characteristic that really hit home for me is the closeness of her family; she mentions them often during the story which really made me relate to the main character so much more. In my opinion, this story was well written and all descriptions were so vivid that I had a prevalent imagination of each character and each emotion experienced. I recommend this wonderful romance to all of the women in my club because it is told from Imogen's perspective. She is tough and innocent which reminds me of myself when I first got married. She doesn't want casual sex but strives to find that one person who will complete her in every way. I am giving this story fives stars because I could really relate which is one of the main things that a reader looks for when picking a book.

A Review of Another Shot At Love (A What's Love??? novel Book 1) by Niecey Roy A Sexy, laugh out loud book - definitely 5++ stars I found Niecey from one of the many groups that I participate in and this is the first book I have read by her. I have to say I really like her writing style. This book focuses on Imogen Mae (Gen or Gennie to friends and family), along with her twin sister and best friend as the main characters. In the prologue, she is throwing Brent's (her ex) remaining clothes and belongings out of the window of their apartment, after calling him to come get them. I love her spunk and tenacity. Three months later, she has moved on and while hanging out with her twin and best friend, she says she is ready to consider dating again. While they are all sitting there, she notices a ring on her sister's finger and finds out that she just got engaged the night before. Unfortunately, he is the best friend of Gen's ex, which means they will have to deal with each other during all the wedding plans, engagement party and wedding. Everyone is afraid she will take Brent back, so they are trying to set her up with someone that she can bring as a date to the engagement party. Her older sister, Catherine, sets her up on a multitude of bad blind dates and just when she is ready to give up on finding Mr. Perfect, she face-plants into the crotch of a sexy stranger after being dumped by the latest geek and left with the check for their meal. Matt sits down at her table and they end up spending time together. He’s not looking for a relationship and Gen has decided that she needs to call off dating anyone. I don't want to spoil the book for anyone, so I will just say you really want to read this one. I couldn't put it down and ended up reading way to late in the night, but it was so worth it. I am looking forward to reading the rest of this series and anything else she writes. **Complimentary Copy provided by Author for an honest review.**

In Another Shot at Love, we join poor Imogen, her twin sister just got engaged, to her ex boyfriend's best friend. In a few short months, Gen will be forced to spend time with her two timing ex. This causes her older sister to begin an ill conceived plan to set Gen up. After a month of unsuccessful dates, Gen is ready to give up on men again, when she has an embarrassing run in with a handsome stranger, Matt. I loved falling in love with these characters. The family scenes and sister scenes are so true to life, Gen and her family feel like the family you always wanted. And Matt, the perfect man to make anyone want another shot at love. I love the progression on Gen and Matt relationship and that they are both strong, independent characters that become happier with each other, but don't have some fatal flaw like most romance novels. Niecey Roy writes a funny, smart love story, and leaves me wondering how many people in my life have been abducted by evil gray aliens!!

Another Shot At Love was a fun romcom I completely enjoyed. Gen and her twin sister Lexie were dating best friends, what could go wrong? Just about everything! When Gen finds her boyfriend of two years with ‘stripper Barbie’ her whole life falls apart. With the support of a big loving family and a best friend with a taser she sets out in the dating world again, only to be dumped and left with the check. Gen meets Matt in the most unusual of ways and their whole relationship is just that, unusual. Add in the posse of secondary characters and you are in for a laugh out loud funny adventure as Gen tests the waters with Matt all while trying to avoid her ex. If you like romantic comedy you will love Gen’s story from the beginning all the way to the steamy end.

Magnificent!! Gen is regrouping after the betrayal of her fiancé. She’s looking up and moving forward, until her twin sister announced her wedding and even more… she’s maid of honor and the ex scumbag the best man. Determined their sister will hook up with Brent at the wedding the Gorecki sisters starts master planning blind dates for Gen. From one awful blind date the worst Gen just doesn’t find another to share love with. That is it until she plants her face into the crotch of a very handsome stranger. Her one night date with him, has Gen dreaming for more. When her sisters finally decides that Gen is doomed, they reach for drastic solutions, the dull cop will have to do. In an attempt to disarm their plan Gen lies and proclaim her one night date her boyfriend. The only problem to this plan of hers…. He doesn’t know it, yet. This was an absolute magnificent read. I was cracking myself open with these sisters. Niecey captures your attention from page one and doesn’t let go until your done. I still grimaced at the memory of catching Brent locked in a porno-worthy position with his fake-breasted ex-girlfriend on the sheets I’d gotten us for Christmas. The moment the sisters starts planning blind dates and adding some more bad memories for the poor Gen. “No time for thinking. No friend of mine hits on the pervert pizza delivery guy. It’s time for drastic measures.” It’s with one of these dates that the inevitable happens, Gen finds her dream guy, but not with puffing her eyes and giving him the dreamy look. I pushed away the plate of spaghetti and turned in my seat to grab my purse hanging on the back of the chair. And ended up face-to-crotch with a man in a pair of slacks. If the guy had been wearing jeans, I wouldn’t have felt every single curve of the male anatomy. Under the soft material of his slacks, nothing was left to my imagination. My nose rolled over his penis and when I gasped, my lips brushed against the slacks, like a kiss. I jerked around in my seat and clutched the edge of the table with both hands, my shoulders squared and back ramrod straight. “Oh my God,” I choked out in a mortified whisper. Could this day get any worse? It at this moment when you know, this is going to be an epic read, and it was. From here on out I was grabbing my kindle and just laughing my butt off. What a marvelous bunch of characters. Gen is strong, yet the chance for true love makes her stumble right into the arms of her Mr. Right. Matt was the perfect gentleman through the novel. With some insecurities of his own he ensures that you shake your head and wonder what the hell is going on. This novel is definitively worth every penny, and makes such a great read. Niecey’s writing style is light and elegant giving you enough description but not overbearing details. I loved, loved her writing style. So from me, a well-deserved 5 stars.

Romantic Comedy at its finest! This book was beautifully written and had me laughing out loud at points. You can relate with the characters and feel as though you can see the scenes unfolding right before your eyes as if you're in fact in them yourself. Brilliantly written and eloquent, Niecey Roy is definitely an author to look out for! Can't wait to get my hands on the sequel!!

In need for a good book to cuddle up to in the cold? One that will set butterflies free in your stomach? Well if that's true Anothother Shot at Love is perfect for you. Gen is a beautiful artist who just found out just how much of a dirt bag her boyfriend is. When most girls go through what he put her through they usually take the time to heal and move on when they are ready. That is not an option for Gen because unlike most girls Gen has a very pregnant over bearing big sister, a wedding crazed twin sister and a crazy best friend that insist she's ready to date. So after a series of horrible blind dates Gen happens to meet a gorgeous, funny gentleman named Matt. Now with Matt on her mind and the threat of more blind dates when faced with an interrogation courtesy of her sisters and mom Gen blurts out that Matt is her boyfriend its not like she will ever see him again and this lie will get everyone off her back. That is until her mom surprises her when she invites Matt to dinner and Gen is faced with a family who thinks he's the one for her and a man who graciously plays along. Gen didn't want a serious relationship and neither did Matt but their connection is just too much to deny and these two are faced with dealing with their emotions and what they really want from one another. Love, loss, lust, crazy ex's and family Another shot at love is the perfect fun read. So cozy up and if the butterflies don't warm you up thoughts of Matt definitely will. ****ARC provided by author in exchange for an honest review***

I received this book as an ARC for an honest review and I won't spoil anything. I LOVED IT!!!! I love the cover that shows you it is going to be fun and everything about this story. It was fun, sweet and as Niecey put it some steamy rip your clothes of moments. Imogen "Gen" Gorecki has some major problems like an ex scumb bag boyfriend, a crazy bridezilla twin and a hormonal pregnant sister. That's enough to drive anyone crazy. After what she went through with her ex who would want to try to love again. Then Matt Sesnick comes in to her life in a most embarrassing way and changes her forever. I was so glad to get a book that just made me happy and laugh. It still had a lot of emotion. I actually got embarrassed for Gen in a few spots and I was laughing so hard in parts and then there were parts that I just said "OH MY GAWD WHAT IS SHE (or he) DOING!!!" It was just a fun story and I loved it. If you are looking for a book that is funny, sexy, and just a great read then this is the book for you. Without a doubt enjoyable and fun. I am so glad that Niecey Roy doesn't feel she needs to give us a play by play in the bedroom (I read those kind too), make us cry our hearts out with ugly crys (some of my favorites), and just lets us have a great love story and a happy heart. I think this is going to be a great series and can't wait for more.
