Book Description:

What if one day, in one evening, all of your shocking secrets came to light?

As an up-and-coming real estate agent at one of Barbados’s well established firms, Joline Osborne spends her days helping people find their perfect match. And she’s found hers… in Brian, Rafi and Nash.

Life in paradise couldn’t be better as Jo manages to keep her fast-paced work life and complex private life totally separate. At work, her colleagues watch in wonder as the free-spirited, easy-going shopaholic fashionably juggles a hot-tempered boss and clients who never quite seem to know what they want. After hours, she drives men wild with her allure, elusiveness and effortless beauty.

But everything is thrown off balance when her isolated worlds collide during her best friend’s charity dog show at Apes Hill. Jo’s neatly woven web of secrets unravels and it all comes crashing down around her. Her colleagues are shocked to learn the ugly truth. Natalie wants nothing to do with her. And her disgruntled lovers give her the worst ultimatum ever: love me or list me.

Can Jo pick up the pieces? Will she mend her broken relationships before it’s too late? And who will she choose?

Love Him or List Him is Aprille L. Thomas’s second novella in the Sunday Afternoon Series, bringing a poetic flair to the complications of corporate life, complex love, and chasing your dreams.

My Book Review:

In her second chick lit novella, Love Him or List Him, author Aprille Thomas transports the reader back to Barbados, where they follow the trials and tribulations of real estate agent Joline Osborne as she tries to balance her career and love life.

This is a fun, fast paced story that easily draws the reader into Jo's story, you can't help but become engaged as she battles career and romantic obstacles. Jo is a sassy determined woman who knows what she wants when it comes to chasing her dreams, but it all comes to a head when she has to overcome the challenging obstacles in her relationships and complex love life. Jo's crazy antics and misadventures will keep the reader laughing out loud.

I loved the rich description of the Barbados setting, the entertaining mixture of spicy romance and career drama that befalls Jo The smooth flow and unexpected twists and turns of the storyline easily draws the reader in, and keeps them engaged and turning the pages. This is the second book in The Sunday Afternoon Series. I look forward to seeing what new adventures the author will take her readers on in the next installment of the series.

Love Him or List Him is an enjoyable chick lit novella that is a perfect read on a cold winters day!
