Always a bridesmaid but never the bride… 

Laney Delaney, a wedding dress designer, thought her fling with Andy in Cancun was more than that—until he admitted he had a fiancĂ©e. Brokenhearted, Laney returns to LA and deals with the demands of temperamental brides and their mothers while trying to forget Andy (whose image is in her mind every time she drinks a margarita). 

She meets Kyle, a young lawyer, who has just what it takes to heal her wounded heart. But when Kyle's marriage proposal never turns into an actual wedding, and he spends more and more time at the office, Laney's happiness sours. Enter a surprise encounter with Andy and an even worse surprise on her kitchen counter and what's a girl to do? 

If you're looking for funny chick lit or a romantic comedy, Love on the Rocks (with Salt) by Charlene Ross (a breakout voice in chick lit) is a must-read fun and flirty novella! 

Love on the Rocks (with Salt) is the prequel to Charlene Ross' first full length book The Frosted Cowboy. As a very short prequel, it gives a great indication to the author's writing style and her sense of humour which I really enjoyed. 

However as its a relatively short story, I found that although I was liking what I was reading, it really didn't give me chance really get to know the characters at all. It was more snapshots of what has been happening in Laney Delaney's disastrous love life. 

Love on the Rocks (with Salt) is an amusing romantic comedy, that will make you smile and is a lovely way to while a away an hour. 

I would recommend reading this if you are interested in trying out the Charlene Ross as an author, and if you are potentially interested in the next book in the series, which should be a much fuller story. As it is this felt like lots of short anecdotes as various points of Laney's life bringing you up to the present day. 

Thank you to Charlene Ross for this review copy. This was my honest opinion.

  1. Thank you so much for your review, Rachel! Yes, you are right, this book is short indeed! Hopefully it left you wanting to find out more about Laney and her friends. And since you like my writing style *insert huge smiley face!* Thank You!!!), I think you'll enjoy Frosted Cowboy a lot. (Definitely a lot more meat in that story!) xoxo
