BOOK REVIEW: Mom Con by K. Morris




Mom Con
Paperback, First, 292 pages
Published December 11th 2012 by Axe Publishing (first published December 2nd 2012)

Goodreads synopsis: Meet Anita Henry, a hard-working, single mom trying to launch her own business after losing her job. The only problem is a nasty lawsuit charging her with stealing secrets from her ex-employer. Corporate espionage? Please. Her single greatest offense was a high school fashion felony. But when a shady court ruling forces Anita to cease and desist, she’s determined to set things right. Her plan involves launching the hippest night spot in town, but can she work her scheme while juggling her brother the musician, who likes her couch just a little too much; his manager, who’s prone to some sketchy accounting practices; an ex-husband who can’t seem to remember those child support payments; and an old flame who wouldn't mind heating things up again?

I had never heard of this book before but its premise intrigued me. And as I kept reading, Anita's fascination with performing a sting on her idea stealing boss seemed right up my alley. I only wish I had such skills in my verbal repertoire.

I was biting my nails as Anita and her co-worker cohorts set up everything. I think this is the beginning of a series and I am curious to see who Anita picks for a love relationship, Corey or Drake. Both seem equally yummy.

This was easy to read. The text flowed well and the twists and turns kept me following along. I did wish for a bigger climax and I wished for more resolution with her brother, James and his music. But all in all, it was a great read. I gave it 4 stars, and deservedly so.

I received this as an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) from Net Galley in return for an honest review and I thank Net Galley and the publisher for allowing me to read it.
