Killing Momzillas by Tatiana Moore

Title - Killing Momzillas
Author - Tatiana Moore
Genre - Romance, Family, Humour, Drama, Mystery
Source - Own, Kindle
Available - Kindle, Smashwords, Barnes & Noble (eBook format only)
Synopsis - Moo is getting married, and Estela has vowed to do everything she can to give her best friend the perfect wedding.

After surviving a stalker and a serial killer, she’s sure she can face just about anything. Even Paulina Hart, Moo’s overbearing, controlling, and evil mother, who has sunk her Momzilla talons into the wedding details and is shredding everything!

To keep Moo’s dream day from chaos and ruin, Estela takes a more hands-on role in wedding planning. Between meeting her biological father and his family and a forced partnership with a dominatrix, she quickly learns that pulling off a secret, Momzilla-free wedding is near impossible.

Focusing only on Moo also pushes Estela’s other relationships, including the details of her own wedding, to the back burner. When things start falling apart at the seams, Estela realizes that she has to do something to mend the cracks in her life before she loses not only Moo, but Caleb too.

Is this cover a bit scary? But so very fitting.

I always find it difficult to write a review for this series. I absolutely adore everything about this book, but when it comes to typing it out in a review. It just comes out as an encrypted ramble that probably nobody can make sense of. Not even me.

But nevertheless I'm going to give it a go...

Tatiana Moore has this great ability to pull readers in and not let them go. Every time a new book is released, I cannot stop thinking about it until I've devoured it. And it's so hard when it's 2AM and I have an early morning and then I wake up at 6AM, STILL thinking about Estela.

And it's not so much the plot, but the characters themselves. Sometimes I have to remind myself that they're not real. I cannot slap Paulina Hart, or Estela's Mum no matter how much I want too.

And for the readers that have read this book before, did you know George's secret? Or was that added in, in this version. I seriously can't remember it. But at least now it makes sense. I never did understand why he stuck around. I always thought he was a bit of a wimp.

As for Estela and the rest of the gang. Aren't they still great? I couldn't stop giggling at Estela being high from tea, and laughing myself silly when she declared Kyle 'Batman'. He should really get his own story!

PLUS, there was plenty of Adam in this book. Incredibly lovable, so very childish and I bit of a whiner in this book, lol.

Ugh, I love this series. A bit too much I think...

I'm so looking forward to the next book in the series, Killing Models, and in equal measures dreading it, because I know it's the last in the series. And I don't want it too end. I don't want it to be the last time I read about Estela and her crazy life.

And I know Adam and Daisy get there own story, but it's not the same.

5/5 Perfect!

  1. Thank you so much for such a terrific review! :) Also, I did add in the scene with George at the end; however, I hinted at it in book one (very subtle, I think).
