Review: The Happy Ever After Playlist by Abby Jimenez

Two years after losing her fiancé, Sloan Monroe still can't seem to get her life back on track. But one trouble-making pup with a 'take me home' look in his eyes is about to change everything. With her new pet by her side, Sloan finally starts to feel more like herself. Then, after weeks of unanswered texts, Tucker's owner reaches out. He's a musician on tour in Australia. And bottom line: he wants Tucker back.
Well, Sloan's not about to give up her dog without a fight. But what if this Jason guy really loves Tucker? As their flirty texts turn into long calls, Sloan can't deny a connection. Jason is hot and nice and funny. There's no telling what could happen when they meet in person. The question is: with his music career on the rise, how long will Jason really stick around? And is it possible for Sloan to survive another heartbreak?

Review: I loved the mixture of romance, humour and sex in this novel. I really enjoyed The Friend Zone and so enjoyed a similar tone in this novel and knew what to expect in terms of the level of romance in proportion to the story and the sex. 

I loved the way this book kicked off, if there is ever a hook for a novel then having a dog jump through your sun roof is it. I laughed and laughed the beginning of the book and I felt like we really got know Sloan quickly because of that. I loved Sloan as a character because she is a woman who was very confident and self assured but then had this gadgetry take place and got knocked down because of it. She has worked hard to build herself back up and her friends have been there for her to help he do it but it is so hard to overcome such grief. 

Then we have Jason. I really love the way we got to meet Jason as well. he is simple and unassuming and we know the link her has with Sloan right away, but as well get to know him further I jst fell more and more in love with him. I really liked him as a character, sure he has his faults but I feel like he was in the right place at the right time when it came to what was best for Sloan. 

As I have already mentioned, there is a really good balance of humour, sex and romance in this novel and the sex is really really hot. I like when we actually have sex on the page the the author not hold anything back and Abby Jimenez really doesn't hold anything back when it comes to her sex scenes. I love the setup and I love the aftermath as well so if you are someone that needs a bit of pillow talk afterwards, you've got it in this book. 

This novel was really fun, I listened on audio and it was very well narrated. If you're looking for a romantic escape right now with a good amount of sex and humour thrown in, this book is the way forward.
