This was a great read. The book focuses on Ava, a young woman who is in a rut in her life and when she gets a chance to go on vacation with her best friend Erica, she see a whole other life that she could leave if she just gets the courage up to make the changes that are so obviously needed to be changed in her life.

I liked how in this book, the main female finds the handyman handsome but she is also not going to trip over herself to try and get with him right from the off because he was being an ass to her but in time, they are able to make amends and see that they can be really good friends and maybe eventually something else.

Mich is a great writer and friend of mine and I can't wait to finish all of her other books and if you haven't read any yet, what is taking you so long?

A 5- star rating for this book.

HASH(0x9e202d74) out of 5 stars Wish there had been more of this story Nov. 5 2013
By T London - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I am sure we have all read books where we wished there had been more, well this was one of those books. I found I was able to connect with each character but it was a short story. What she gave us was just a glimpse of what she is capable of, and already with her novella, I was wanting more from her. What I found different with this book was it didn't have the feel of just an enjoyable hour read. The kind you read and forget minutes after reading the last page. This felt like this should be the beginning of a series of books about Ava and Morgan.

The plot was real, we have all faced these issues at one point in life. We know there is more out there but are we willing to step out of our comfort zone to reach for the gold ring. Sometimes, as in this story, we are faced with that being the only option because giving up isn't something we can do. The characters were strong for a novella. I kept thinking as I was reading, this could have been expanded into an awesome novel. I don't say this as a bad thing, I say this as I am looking forward to watching this new author expand and start putting out novels for us. If this is any indication of what she is capable of, I for one will be watching her career and dedicating a shelf for her books.

There comes a time when you have to take a good hard look and make a decision on whether what you have is really what you want – this time had come for Ava and as much as she was determined to stick her head in the sand in some respects, you can’t run forever and despite the appearances of happy ever after, if what you have is a shadow of that, then you have to take stock.
Ava has done just that and her life is dealing her a crappy hand at the minute she is up to her eyes in mundane and she has to shake out the cobwebs, so with her best friend Erica in tow, the two of them take off for a short break and a bit of re-evaluation. You go girl!
This short story makes sure it makes good use of every word on every page, nothing goes to waste, and these ladies are in for one very enlightening trip.
Ava is a complicated character in some respects but I found that she was very easy to relate too, she had that fantastic female trait of carrying the worry of the world on her shoulders down to a fine art, she really believed that she could make it all better if she tried harder, no matter what those around her were adding to the mix but she also had a short fuse which meant that she wasn’t always able to engage her brain to mouth filter, which I loved.
But she could have enjoyed her vacation a lot more if she had just taken her time to absorb everything and everyone around her.
But it her time away did have the desired effect, when she returned home, because the time apart has illuminated the fact that her relationship was truly over and both her boyfriend and her agree to part ways.
So here she is a new found singleton, ready to take on the big bad world and finally let a little happiness in – I hope so she needs to kick it up a little!!!
This was a simple but effective look at the world of one woman and the journey she embarks upon to accept that a happy ever after starts with being happy on the inside.
A great, quick but short read – loved it.
HASH(0x9e1c3e04) out of 5 stars Amazing, full of emotions and definitely packs a punch! July 20 2014
By LilyGreenEyes - Published on Amazon.com

As with ‘Right Click, Love’, I really don’t know where to start showering praise on this story. A happy ever after but with all the integrity and realism of the life of someone who just got lucky. Quirky, easy to relate to, completely believable and just a delight to read. There are so many things I just loved about it that I’m struggling to put them into words. That being said, you might need to wade through some gushing from myself as I try to pin down just a few key features for you….

I guess I’ll start with Ava. She is so like me it is unbelievable, down to the relationships and everything (the books, the pets, the house). But I don’t think that is the only reason I love her, it’s her down to earth attitude to life and her personality as a whole. She’s just so likeable! And so utterly believable as well! It’s like she just hops out the page and starts talking to you, like a friend we probably all have (or the person we are in my case), she’s just a delightful lead character. Her relationship with Morgan, and her friendship with Erica are also incredibly well written, again believable, realistic and enjoyable interactions throughout. They’re all characters that we could encounter at work or amongst friends, and as a result of that we can engage with them so much easier, welcoming them into our lives like we would their real life counterparts. I’ve digressed, and waffled (no change there!) but what I’m getting at is that they are all fabulous characters, but especially Ava, she just has a certain something that makes her that extra bit more wonderful.

Another thing which I loved was the style in which this was written. Feeney includes everything we need to know, yet cleverly leaves little gaps to stimulate our imagination. I love finding this in a book as it gives the reader a little scope to make the characters their own, there’s that little bit of wriggle room for interpretation. There’s also a wonderfully dry sense of humour to Feeney’s writing, a sort of wit and sarcasm that feels so natural and enjoyable to read. It makes it feel familiar, and it’s more like chatting with a friend rather than reading a book. It’s very well done and is so enjoyable to read, a much needed change from the ooey-gooey romances that line the shelves at the moment!

When you consider the length of the book, and the amount of content included, plus the space for your own ideas, Feeney shows great skill in developing a wonderful plot and cast of characters in such a relatively short amount of pages. This makes it so much easier for you to read because you get all the enjoyment and detail you’d find in a full length novel, yet you could easily read the story in a day without feeling you were being cheated or missing any of the action. I’ve not encountered many authors who has grasped such a skill for this genre and length, but Feeney is definitely one of them. She pitches it perfectly every time, doesn’t miss a beat or opportunity to seize on a plot development point yet still keeps us guessing as to exactly what is going to happen. Even though I had an inkling Ava and Morgan would get it on, I in no way expected the ending that occurred!

In conclusion, I guess what I’m trying to say is that this book is rather amazing. I experienced a wide range of emotions, from warm fuzzies, to anger, laughing and crying, tutting at characters and cheering them on. For such a short story it doesn’t half pack a punch, but I’m learning that this is Feeney’s style. I cannot recommend this story highly enough, and really, truly, honestly think you should all go add it to Goodreads lists, and one-click it on Amazon UK or Amazon US. And whilst you’re showing some clicking love, why don’t you go show our author some love too?

Ava is in a rut. She won't admit it, but she is. She has her dogs, a house and a boyfriend that she's beginning to realize might not be her happily ever after.

Her best friend, Erica, convinces her to leave London for a bit for holiday on the Isle of Wight. Ava finally concedes and the ladies embark on a trip that will change both of their lives forever.

JLitM is a short book that fits a lot of story in it's limited amount of pages. I'll admit that I was expecting something completely different. With the name Just Like the Movies, I expected this to be another story about an actor who meets a girl and they fall in love at first sight. That's not even close to what I got in this short. This is a sweet, slow burn of a book about a woman finding herself in the most unexpected of places. Ava knows that she's not happy but like most women she feels like she needs to try a little harder. Love a little more. The vacation is a moment for her to clear her head and give her some perspective.

Early into the trip she stops in to a book store and is confronted with a handsome local with a case of foot-in-mouth that rubs Ava in such wrong way that whenever they come into contact with each other (which is a lot given how small the town is) her anger is ignited each and every time. Given the circumstances, Ava does not enjoy her vacation to the fullest - until her final day there. It's a bittersweet moment for her, to see how light and free she could be if only she'd allow herself.

Her eyes are opened and once she returns home, she and her boyfriend realize that it's not worth staying together out of convenience. So she must move on. And when she does, she embraces the happiness that she deserves with open arms.

Just Like in the Movies is not only a romance, but it's an honest look at one woman's epiphany that life is infinitely better when you chase happiness. This is not a book filled with sex or kink or unbelievable fantasies. This is a sweet heart warming story that ends in a happily ever after that's just like the movies.

'Just Like in the Movies' is a novella length story about changing lives and relationships. Ava and Marcus have been together for a while and have become settled into a routine but the relationship has lost its sparkle and magic. Ava starts to feel as though she is settling for a mundane life rather than the one she wants to live.
A short holiday with her best friend Erica to the gloriously scenic Isle of Wight, gives Ava the time she needs to reflect on her life and her relationship with Marcus. When she meets Morgan in a bookshop and he makes some assumptions about her that are wrong. It gets her back up and they end up butting heads again and again. Her reaction to Morgan may seem to be an over-reaction, but is systemic of the way she is thinking and feeling about herself at that time. She fights her attraction for him by fighting him.
Morgan is equally attracted to Ava and can read her like a book. Unfortunately Ava's sharp words cause Morgan to fight back as she consistently gets under his skin. With Ava's holiday over before they have a chance to move forward, it seems that their potential relationship is over before it has got going.
The return to everyday life brings the realisation that it is not enough anymore. She wants a life where she is happy and content. The situation with Marcus resolves itself and forces her to make some tough decisions. Each of us holds our own futures in our own hands and it is up to us to make the choices that make us happy and fulfilled.
This was a story that I could completely relate to, taking the opportunity away and using it to re-evaluate your life. It is what makes M.B Feeney's writing so good. The story is rooted in a situation that everyone can relate to, with characters that are down to earth and you can empathise with. M.B Feeney has created a romance story that is just like the movies.
