Funny Business by Desmond X. Torres ~ Blog Tour & Review

Publisher: Monarch Moments
Publication Date:  October 24, 2013
Genre:  Romantic Comedy

Artie’s been carrying a torch for Marie since she first repaired his car at Smitty’s garage. Too bad she hates cops. You could write a novel about it. Actually, Artie did. He even published it online. It’s a little cheesy, but his pen name Desiree Robb is developing a fan base. 

Out of the blue, the book takes off, igniting an avalanche of sales. Desiree Robb is approached by a major publisher- they’re offering millions! 

But Desiree has to show her pretty face for promotions. Guess who Artie asks to be Desiree?
Marie signs on- for a price. It’s easy money, but things get complicated. Artie’s driving her batty. Or is there something more? During preparations for a live TV broadcast, a sweet romance tentatively begins.
More complications ensue. The mob gets involved. These guys mean business- so what if they still live with their parents? Then there’s the hot for cops VP, a popular talk show, and the FBI. It all fuses into a laugh out loud cluster chaos as tangled as a New York City rush hour. 

Available for ONLY $0.99

A former New York City cop, Desmond X. Torres will neither confirm nor deny his ownership of a blonde wig and pink bathrobe.

He always wanted to be an astronaut, but the closest he ever got was being called a space shot.

In his spare time, he enjoys mixed martial arts, motocross racing, and base jumping from tall buildings. He has a great cable TV package. And beer. He loves beer. And nachos. He really loves nachos.

He’d better say he loves K.D. McLean too or she’s going to brain him.

He has been writing since he can remember. It started in primary school. Penmanship has always been important to him - it’s a lost art.

His motto for life is – “I’m going to live forever.”

So far, so good.

Connect with Desmond:

Super fun, super cute story with some laugh out loud moments that had be grinning from ear to ear. When there’s a mix up between criminals and a wannabe romance writer, all hell breaks loose.

Artie is a great character; from the start, the reader has a connection with him. Artie, a good cop with a sense of purpose and drive, has a hidden desire to write women’s fiction/romance. This makes this a very different take on an otherwise overdone story line. His love interest is feisty, and I can see why he’s smitten. They make a great duo.

It’s hijinks and laughter. I was reminded of Janet Evanovich with the comedy aspect of Funny Business. There isn’t a complicated mystery to figure out, You’re just along for the ride as we change back and forth between the characters. It’s light and fun, and what I call a perfect waiting room read.
