Some Sort of Happy Release Blitz: Review + Giveaway


Some sort of Happy is LIVE!


Skylar Nixon is a twenty-seven year old failed actress with no Plan B. After a humiliating stint on a reality TV show crushes what’s left of her childhood dream, she finds herself back in her hometown with no money saved, no college degree, and no confidence she’s anything but a joke—a small town starlet who couldn’t hack it in the big city.

When she runs into former classmate Sebastian Pryce, she can’t believe the hot body and chiseled jaw belong to the shy, troubled loner she knew ten years before. He’s not exactly friendly at first, and she’s heard the rumors about his tragic past, but something in his sad eyes intrigues her. She only wants to get to know him better.

Until the night she wants more—and takes it. (Hard and deep. Twice.)

Are they just two lonely people seeking solace? Or can a disgraced beauty queen and flawed, frustrated man find some sort of happy ever after?

SOME SORT OF HAPPY is a full-length, dual POV novel, complete with a happy ending.




Some Sort of Happy is a book that will leave you shocked and in awe, in the best possible way. Melanie Harlow writes a story that is the perfect combination of light hearted banter and painfully serious. With two very relatable main charachters Harlow’s Some Sort of Happy will remind readers how serious and crippling life and love can really be.

Sebastian and Skylar went to school together, moved on to different things, in different directions, with the hopes of very different outcomes. But when life throws huge curveballs their way, they both end up back where they started. In their home town, alone and confused.

As a coincidental meeting brings them together, Sebastian and Skylar cannot ignore or deny their instant and continuously blossoming attraction to one another. Feeling a sense of familiarity and comfort within one another, Skylar and Sebastion seek solace and refuge in this new relationship. As feelings of ease and contentment settle in, secrets are brought to the surface, that hover over every thought, every decision and almost always every outcome.

“I could be hers and we could have this little place in the woods on the water where no one would bother us? Where we would love each other and explore each other and hurt each other and forgive each other and find grace in one another’s bodies and souls?”

Some Sort Of Happy shows off Melanie Harlow’s talents as a writer, as she pairs sex, lust and love with topics as serious as OCD and anxiety. Giving her characters enough depth to fulfil the requirements of the story line, Harlow does not disappoint in ensuring that readers feel the weight of every tear and every smile.

Some Sort of Happy reminds us that love is for all.

“Forever, Forever, Forever, Forever, Forever, Forever, Forever, Forever”
