✱✱ Book Review ✱✱ & Release Blitz for Balance Check by M.E. Carter

Title: Balance Check
A #MyNewLife Novel
Author: M.E. Carter
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: August 18, 2017


Life has a funny way of throwing you off balance.

Take me for example. I spent years in a bad marriage with a self-serving ass, only to have the love of my life show up when I least expected him. Greg helped me on my journey of self discovery and taught me that, no, I’m not perfect. But I’m perfectly me.  It was an amazing journey.

We laughed hard. We loved even harder.

And then he was suddenly and cruelly ripped away from me by the unclenching jaws of fate.

Ok, so it wasn’t that dramatic. And I really need to stop watching the Investigation Channel.

But now Greg is back and as it turns out, re-incorporating someone into your life isn’t that easy. Between jobs, kids, and barely-there friendships, life and love can be messy. Making it all work is a balancing act. 

But we’re determined to get it in check.

Momma Says: 4 out of 5 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Much like the first book, Getting a Grip, I hesitate to call this one a comedy. It is full of wit and snark. Elena and Callie's one-liners were good for a smile and a few chuckles and even though some of the situations that these characters get themselves into were a bit over the top, they did keep the story moving at a nice pace and kept me turning pages to see what they would get in to next. It is a good story and I love that these characters are just regular people trying to find their way. It was also refreshing to read about forty-something adults as opposed to the new adult romances that are so prevalent right now. Elena and Greg face some of the same problems that many of us face or have faced in our own lives - juggling kids and visitation, dealing with difficult exes, and making a happy home for a blended family. The author writes beautifully and tells a story that pulls a reader in and I truly enjoyed this second half of Elena and Greg's love story. I would easily recommend this one to anyone who likes a good everyday romance with some crazy thrown in.

Author Bio

Mother, reader, storytellerME Carter never set out to write books. But when a friend practically forced a copy of Twilight into her hands, the love of the written word she had lost as a child was rekindled. With a story always rolling around in her head, it should come as no surprise that she finally started putting them on paper. She lives in Texas with her four children, Mary, Elizabeth, Carter and Bug, who sadly was born long after her pen name was created, and will probably need extensive therapy because of it.
