Release Blitz and Review – Some Sort of Happy by Melanie Harlow


Some sort of Happy is LIVE!


Skylar Nixon is a twenty-seven year old failed actress with no Plan B. After a humiliating stint on a reality TV show crushes what’s left of her childhood dream, she finds herself back in her hometown with no money saved, no college degree, and no confidence she’s anything but a joke—a small town starlet who couldn’t hack it in the big city.
When she runs into former classmate Sebastian Pryce, she can’t believe the hot body and chiseled jaw belong to the shy, troubled loner she knew ten years before. He’s not exactly friendly at first, and she’s heard the rumors about his tragic past, but something in his sad eyes intrigues her. She only wants to get to know him better.
Until the night she wants more—and takes it. (Hard and deep. Twice.)
Are they just two lonely people seeking solace? Or can a disgraced beauty queen and flawed, frustrated man find some sort of happy ever after?
**SOME SORT OF HAPPY is a full-length, dual POV novel, complete with a happy ending.**





Whitney’s 4.5 Star Review

Do you know why I love Melanie?

Every single book I’ve read of hers sucks me into the story within a few pages. A whole three pages into Some Sort of Happy and I knew I wasn’t going to be able to put it down.

This is a dual POV book which works well because we really need both perspectives to properly engage with these characters. Skylar is a local ex-beauty queen with a reputation ruined on reality TV. Her town can’t forgive her and she feels like a failure with no direction in life.

Sebastian has moved back to town after his own disgraces and is trying to start over. Having crushed on Skylar throughout high school, he wants to get to know her as an adult but has a lot of personal problems that preclude this. This book definitely touches on some mental disorders and Melanie did a great job of portraying Sebastian’s character realistically.

It’s frustrating to read at times but very in keeping with the character’s personalities. And though this book is more serious than her Frenched series, Melanie brings these perfect laugh out loud moments to break up the more angsty pieces.

As with all of the author’s books, the sext times are off the charts hot. Skylar and Sebastian have great chemistry and I fell in love with both of their characters.

This book does serve as a stand alone though it appears there will be a continuation of their story. No fear though, it’s safe to read now! I can’t wait to see what Melanie has in store for us next.
