How To Liv by Megan Keith



A chance encounter can change everything.

Olivia Moore is your average hard working, down to earth, Aussie chick.

Taking each day as it comes, working in a factory, Olivia is just plodding along through life. She’s resigned herself to the fact she’s not going to get her happily ever after, a husband… kids… because she has given up on men - they lie and cheat, leaving a world of pain in their wake.

Then Olivia meets Joel.

Joel Turner is hard working, down to earth, sexy, kind, fun… in fact, he’s damn near perfect. Joel is exactly the type of man Olivia has always wanted. He stirs emotions in her that have laid dormant for years. He breaks down her walls, forcing Olivia to fall in love and to finally believe fairy tales really can come true.

Until she discovers something that could change it all.

Excerpt One


“Fuck!”  Could this day get any worse?

“So we meet again,” a now familiar voice spoke softly.

I jumped, still cursing the broken tub of ice cream and turned to watch Tim Tam guy pushing his trolley to a stop at the back of the silver ute parked beside mine.  What are the chances? 

“Well, I feel like I have to introduce myself now.”  He chuckled. 

Introduce myself!  Why didn’t I think of that?

He stepped a little closer and held out his hand.

“I’m Joel and I promise I’m not stalking you.”

“Olivia,” I said laughing, taking his hand.  It was warm and slightly rough.  It was strong and inviting and very, very hard to let go of.  I blinked a couple of times and then dropped my hand to my side before I made even more of a fool of myself.  I hope he can’t see the sweat on my brow. 

“Nice to meet you,” he said with a genuinely heart pounding smile.  “So Olivia, have you eaten?”

I picked up my packet of Tim Tams and saluted him with them.

Dinner?” he asked disbelievingly.

“Yep,” I replied.

“You can’t be serious.”  He chuckled.

“Deadly,” I said with a smile.

“Could I take you to a real dinner?  Something with a little more nutrition, maybe?”  He had a cheeky look on his face.

“Um…”  I’m a sweaty mess, why is he even asking me?

Oh god, he’s single!  And hot!  And asking me out!



Excerpt Two


He moved his body down ever so slightly and pressed into me, his erection still above where I needed it to be.  I tried to move but was unable to get close enough to get the friction where I wanted it.  He had me pinned with his thick, solid thighs and my feet were barely touching the carpet on the side of the bed, I couldn’t get any leverage with the only the tips of my toes.  His kisses moved back to my neck and became vicious as he nipped me over and over.  He would bite me hard, to the point of pain and then he would softly lick away the hurt and kiss me tenderly again.  The throbbing between my legs was becoming unbearable as he put pressure against me, again in the wrong spot.  I felt my knickers getting damper by the second as I tried to push him lower.

“Stop wriggling,” he said demandingly against my neck before nipping my ear.  “Let me tease you.” 

Lori' s review:                 5++++++++++ stars********

Oh what it would be like to "bump" into Prince Charming at the grocery store fighting over a bag of Tim Tam's? Olivia is one damn lucky girl But I think maybe I would have been a bit "creeped" out if I kept "running" into him at every... aisle, but then again, if he was as hot as Joel, I guess I would have loved it.
The titles to each chapter were killer gunny-love how Megan "spiced" them up.
I hate leaving spoilers and I'm not yet very good at making long reviews that rock, but I'm trying LOL

There are so many great parts in this book that if I was one to leave spoilers-this review would be forever long-let's just say---Buy How to Liv and judge for yourself. you wont be disappointed!!!

...I was about to argue with him, when he said, " You, know, I'm so happy I reached for a packet of Tim Tam's that day." And just like that.....He owned me....!!
