What worlds would you move to be with your soulmate?

Painter Tessa Barnum is struggling. Her husband left, she's broke, about to be evicted and has made some serious missteps in her career.
When scruffy Brian Tennyson explodes into her life, claiming to be from an alternate universe, Tessa thinks he's a crazy vagabond - albeit one with mysterious and undeniable appeal.

Then he informs her that in his world, they're married.

Tessa's universe is turned upside down as the truth of love and loss, victory and humiliation, and second chances comes back to her. She has to choose love over logic to reach that state of anticipation where miracles unfold. The secret to her own life was always in her heart.

Looking at the cover of this book, you would maybe think erotica...right? Maybe? I admit I did and yes I did read the blurb. There wasn't one erotic word in this story and I have to say that I was happy it wasn't.

What you get instead is a sweet romantic (and very often comedic) story of two people overcoming life's little hiccups and loss.

Tessa and Brian were a joy to read...two totally different people drawn together even in alternate universes. It was so funny to read Brian chasing Tessa all around NY trying to convince her that he's not crazy and that they're married in another universe. All throughout this story I kept trying figure out why Brian wanted to find this Tessa...why not any other Tessa. I figured out at the end of the story which was so perfect that it had me crying. I simply loved it.

This is my first read by Traci L. Slatton and I have say she has a fan. She wove a wonderful tale here. The world building was beautifully written and the characters were romantic and funny to boot. And I just loved the sci-fi fantasy twist to it as well, it was a good fit to this story.

The Love of My (Other) Life is a quirky story. You may be a little confused while reading some parts (I was), BUT...it hits all of the right spots and is a feel good type of a book. I'm glad I read it.


Lata Days...MUAH~



  1. Hmmm yeah I was so going with that was an erotic one. Interesting choice of cover. It sounds fun though :) I love my books with some heat but every now and again one of the sweet ones really does hit the spot :) Glad it turned out to be a good one for ya!

  2. I just got my copy today. I thought it was erotica too but I don't mind if it isn't. As long as it's well written I'm up for it.

  3. The cover is very deceiving for sure, but I liked the story. Def a different read for me

  4. I totally agree with u Anna...love my boos with heat ;)

    I am wondering though this cover was closen...def makes u wonder...

  5. okay this girl straight up mooned me! *scrolled back up to review* oooh nice review. Yeah, based on the cover, I would have thought it was erotica... Adding this one to my TBR ^_^ Again, great review girly <3

    P.S. is there a Brian out there willing to search for a certain Ana? xD


  6. lols!!!!! thank you Missy! ikr...the cover is really misleading, but I get to ask the author what's up with that...but it's still a great read :)

    Im looking for a Brian too...lmbo...lawd know need one. ooooo, maybe there's a Brian for each of us!!!!! yeah, I like that idea :)

  7. ooh okay! I'ma be stalking your page for the answer to that question too haha. Definitely misleading. I mean, It's a nice cover and all.. but not something I would imagine for a contemp romance, even one that leans a bit towards comedic romance.

    Lmbo! AMEN! hahaha. Let's go Brian-Hunting haha


  8. totally agree....I'm not sure why the cover was chosen. hmmmm, I mean like you said it's nice & all, but it really has nothing to do with the book.

    Yeah...Brian Hunting...woo hoo!
