Review: Buzzing Easter Bunnies by Nick Spalding

The sequel to BLUE CHRISTMAS BALLS from Nick Spalding, the bestselling author of the smash hit romantic comedy Love... From Both Sides and its sequels Love... And Sleepless Nights & Love... Under Different Skies

Every story needs a decent climax... 

There are plenty of things Christina Barclay would like to do before she hits thirty at Easter. Having an orgasm with somebody else in the room is most definitely one of them.

Up to now, her love life has been sorely lacking in the toe-curling department - but luckily for Christina, she's just started dating Matthew Adrian Bunion, a man whose bedroom inexperience is more than made up for by his never-ending enthusiasm. Mr Bunion will not rest until his new girlfriend is satisfied - no matter what the cost in rechargeable batteries, physical injury or public embarrassment.

From the best-selling author of BLUE CHRISTMAS BALLS and LOVE... FROM BOTH SIDES, this is the story of one woman and one man on an epic quest to come together, and celebrate an Easter birthday in style.

This is a 24,000 word novella - about 115 pages in paperback.

Review: I was sent this book by the author for an honest review and saved it to read on Easter Sunday, when I would be able to sit down and read it all. I am really glad that I'd I'd this as this was the perfect light entertainment for Easter Sunday afternoon! I laughed so hard at this novella and yet it was a such a good storyline, I got really involved in it and in the characters. 

As a woman about to turn thirty myself, I really identified with main character Christina and found her quest for an orgasm really funny! She is a likeable character and morally realistic. I think she was straight talking, which I always admire in a character and her ideas for why she hasn't achieved the big O yet are also really insightful. Matthew is also a straight talking character and he reminded me of Leonard from Big Bang Theory, a loveable geek. I really like the fact that he owned up to his inexperience straight away, although it never really was explained how he ended up in A & E with something inserted into his rectum...

This novella is a wonderful break from reality and could definitely be read at any time of year, not just Easter Sunday! It was funny, it was insightful, it was real. I enjoyed it from start to finish and literally devoured it all in one go. If you've got an hour or so to kill this is definitely the way you should spend it, although be warned, there are plenty of comedy sex moments throughout!
