This is the story of how I waded through shit creek and got out clean. Kinda.

Meet Jack. He’s one stressed out son of a bitch. That’s why he’s so rude and suffers from breathing problems and chest pains. He’s successful and good-looking, but still very unhappy.

But then Jack hits a wall and bounces straight into a new and complicated existence.

This is his wake-up call.

The Wake-Up Call is suspense, comedy and romance all rolled into one fast-paced and entertaining novel. The reader is taken on a wild ride in the shoes of New York advertising mogul Jack Reynolds and will find out first-hand how Jack’s sharp-mouthed, self-destructive and arrogant behavior is about to crash down on him and change his life forever.

Reader response:
“If you don’t smile to this book, you probably never smile anyway.”
“Like a male Bridget Jones in the voice of Marian Keyes.”
“Brilliant fun for small money.”

“A riveting page-turner.”

I'll be honest with you. I'm a designer and I picked this book up because I thought the cover was appealing. Yeah, it works like that for ebooks as well :) But only a few pages in I was hooked by this Jack guy. It's like being inside his head. And a very entertaining head it is! 

The book is a fast and easy read, there are not too many characters to keep track of and the action unfolds very much like in a movie. You won't find a lot of description but instead some punchy and humorous dialogue, which I really liked. There's some unexpected twists and turns to the story that keeps you on your toes and you're never really sure what's going to happen next. 

To summarize The Wake-Up Call really has it all - you laugh, you're moved and most of all you're entertained. The only bad thing I can say about is that it ends too soon. So I'll just hope the author writes another book soon!
