Spotlight+Review: One Day Like This by Scarlett Cole

 Release Date: September 21

Loving Izabel Bryson should be the easiest thing in the world. Heck, she’s been the inspiration for at least half a dozen of the songs he’s written for his rock band, Sad Fridays.
He’s loved her for a decade.
But she’s his best friend and fellow-band mate’s little sister, and he promised a decade ago that he’d never put his hands on her.
She can never be his, no matter how much he craves her.

Loving Matt Palmer is the most hopeless thing in the world.
The hours she spends running her friend’s yoga studio and volunteering at the Manchester homeless shelter only go so far in distracting her from the painful truth.
He doesn’t want her.
Because she screwed up that awful night two years before when she slept with Matt’s brother.
He will never be hers, no matter how much she yearns for him.

When a good deed leads to one bed, and one night of ruthless honesty, everything is laid bare. They belong together, but acting on it will cost them everything.

This first book of Scarlett Cole was amazing! It has drama and angst and hidden relationships and, like, a LOT of drama.

The whole series centers around a Manchester band on the brink of making it big. It's also about family, the one you're born into and the one you make. I actually never thought about reading a book/series that was about a band making it big. I read about one about to splinter, one that is dealing with the drama of being famous, about the fight with alcoholism and drugs, but never about how it all was before they made it big. It was fascinating!

Matt and Izabel are lovely together and I am glad they realized it pretty fast. Them hiding it was the big problem for them. I absolutely loved that we didn't have the big misunderstanding trope here. They are good people apart and together they are even better. They push each other to be better, to dream bigger to be the best they can be. It's all you can ever one in a relationship.

I can't wait to see where we go from this book and I am beyond grateful that Scarlett has book 2 already on preorder for in about 2 months.

The tattoo across my right hip says it all really. A Life Less Ordinary. Inked by the amazingly talented Luke Wessman at the Wooster Street Social Club (a.k.a. New York Ink). Why is it important? Well, it sums up my view on life. That we should all aspire to live a life that is less boring, less predictable. Be bold, and do something amazing. I’ve made some crazy choices. I’ve been a car maker, a consultant, and even a senior executive at a large retailer running strategy. 

Born in England, spent time in the U.S. and Japan, before ending up in Canada where I met my own, personal hero – all six and a half feet of him. Both of us are scorpios! Yeah, I know! Should have checked the astrological signs earlier, but somehow it works for us. We have two amazing kids, who I either could never part with or could easily be convinced to sell on e-bay.


I’ve wanted to be a writer for a really long time. Check through my office cupboards or my computer and you’ll find half written stories and character descriptions everywhere. Now I'm getting the chance to follow that dream.


I am represented by Beth Phelan at The Bent Agency, NY.
