Lemon Curd Review and Giveaway

This Giveaway is done by SaraLee's Deals Steals & Giveaways

 Book Description:
 Lemon Curd is a love story between the righteous and opinionated Anna Lisa Gibson and her arrogant British office-mate, Neil Scott Whittaker. He can have any woman he desires but Anna Lisa's honesty and down to earth personality makes him fall in love with her. Except that he doesn't want to give up his fiancee and she doesn't want to have an affair with a soon to be married man. Yet romance is only part of this story. From the streets of Los Angeles to the streets of London, Lemon Curd depicts the millennium lifestyle - Women's position in the business world, the workaholic and multitasking attitude of our society and the difficulty of balancing family and work life while trying to make a difference in the lives of the people around us.
 About the author:
Homa Pourasgari resides in Los Angeles, California. She received a degree in Business from Loyola Marymount University, after which she left to live in Paris for one year and attended the University of Sorbonne, focusing on literature. Multilingual, she has been traveling since the age of 5 and has experienced many different cultures. Homa has worked in various industries such as marketing, retail, banking, accounting and fitness but has always returned to her true love – writing. She is currently working on a new book. Lemon Curd is her first novel.

My Take:
I was happy to get the chance to read another one of  Homa Pourasgari's books. I read The Dawn of Saudi: In Search for Freedom book and knew I wanted to read Lemon Curd. I was surprised at how this book was true to my life in the way the main characters interacted with each other. They were sarcastic and funny. I liked how the romance between the characters flowed and was not like any other romance book. I  would say this is a good book to read on one of those rainy weekends. 

i'm always looking for a good romance, and I am a fan of British writing, television etc. I will be finding this book to read on my next sick day. :) It looks fun and not too mushy. My relationship is a lot of sarcasm and humor. I've been married nine years, so far it works for us. I love reading about relationships similar to my own. Although we are happily married to each other, and not flirting while with other people.
