Her best friend plans an intervention which involves a psychic and several highly unlikely signs which may involve her meeting her soul mate. As a doubter she is not [...]
Well, well, well. Who would have thought that I could smile or laugh through a whole book? Rich Amooi, you have a wicked sense of humour!This story is about a very skeptical and unspontaneous young lady with trust issues and a hunk of a guy who knows just how to handle her.

I listened to my first Rich Amooi audiobook last year and enjoyed it, so when the chance came to get a review copy of another one of his stories, I jumped at it.The pun-tastically named Lilliana Jones and the Temple of Groom brings back what I like from Amooi’s writing. It has good plotting and didn’t lag anywhere. Some of the parts of the story are laugh out loud funny to me. (The psychic character of Madam Love is a hoot!) This would fit the bill for those wanting a “clean” romance bec [...]
Why are we, as a human race, suckers for a fun, lively, everyone knows what’s going to happen in the end except the characters in the book (or movie)? Even when the answer is in front of the character’s face, and she refuses to believe it, because, well, a psychic tells her it would happen, tells her all the symbols that she will get before she meets the right man, and one literally happens the second she leaves the restaurant where she has left the psychic and her best friend in the lurch, [...]
Review originally posted on livinglifewithjoy Check out the blog for more reviews, interviews and excerpts!Although Lilliana Jones has an open door policy at her HR job at a high- tech company, she has no room for spontaneity in her own life. When her best friend stages a love intervention, Lilly is in for a rocky and laugh-out-loud funny ride. Lilly’s luck – or lack thereof – when she steers off course throughout the novel is absolutely hilarious. My sides hurt from laughing hard when Lil [...]
I read, A LOT. I go through a book every few days. I'm a voracious reader, and usually spend my time reading mysteries, true crime, police procedurals, and supernatural thrillers. Somehow, one day I bought one of Mr. Amooi's books, and I was HOOKED!His latest story continues to prove to me exactly why I look forward to new releases by this author. I won't rehash the plot, and i hate reviews that have spoilers in them; so i won't go there. What I will do is say that as I read this story, I found [...]
I stopped counting the laugh out loud moments at about five… in the first chapter. Rich Amooi has done it again. Liliana Jones and the Temple of Groom is so much fun to read for so many reasons. First off, Amooi has the gift of great titles. The title alone gave me a chuckle and I had to know more. The main characters Lilly and Marco are so believable. Lilly is the least spontaneous person on the planet and Marco is the complete opposite. He loves to wing it. While helping her find her future [...]
A very entertaining and funny book. Collette springs a surprise reading on Lilliana which is given by Madam Love. When several of Madam Love's predictions come true Lilliana really starts to wonder if the forecasted future husband will make an appearance. When Lilliana suddenly has the opportunity to travel to Italy and recruit Roberto to return and work in the US again for his former company, she begins to wonder he will be her destiny. This will be Lilliana's first plane ride because she is te [...]
This is a great book by Rich Amooi. Lilly Jones’s best friend stages an intervention with a psychic. The next thing Lilly finds herself flying to Rome for work and also find her future husband according the psychic. I couldn’t help but laugh throughout this book at Lilly’s luck. This is a great book with a wonderful story and well developed characters. This book will keep you reading long into the night. If you are looking for a great book, then you need to read this book. I am looking for [...]
A hilarious and fun read as is to be expected from Rich Amooi. His love for travel shines through in this book. I had the image of Robert Downey Jr in my mind as I read about their escapades because this story reminded me of the movie "Only you" which had the same wild goose chase running through Italy theme. That movie may have been great but this book was a lot more fun. Each site visited in Italy is so vividly described that I felt I've visited Italy and now I am home carrying the great memor [...]
“This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.”Lillyanna Jones cringes at the word spontaneous, Marco a man she meets on her first flight is her polar opposite. They seem to grow on each other as he offers to be her tour guide. I loved the adventure, romance and a glimpse of Italy! I found myself laughing as I listened. I will definitely look for more from this author.The narration was well done.The characters [...]
I have read other books by Rich Amooi and this one ranks right up there with the rest. Lilly Jones is an uptight girl whose meddling friend sets her up with a psychic reading. The psychic tells her a series of unbelievable events would occur and then she would meet her Mr. Right. Her journey to find her future husband is wrought with mishaps, but nonetheless make for an exciting adventure and a delightful read. The book is light-hearted and I enjoy Rich Amooi's quirky sense of humor. I couldn't [...]
Another amazing romance!! I have to say, Lilly's life is like so many of other woman's. She has gave up on love due to prior heartbreak. She did what a lot of us do, hide from it and all that finding new love entails. Well, after a surprise (which is not in Lilly's vocab) lunch with her bestie, Colette, some things are about to put her world in a bit of a tailspin. Please, read this book, read ALL of Rich's books. You will not be disappointed.
This book is a delight. The characters are likable and believable. I was rooting for Lilly and Marco all the way from their understandable and entertaining awkward reactions to each other to the happily-ever-after ending. Even Madam Love and her predictions are fun. The descriptions of the food and the sights of Italy made me wish I was there as well. Take a trip with Lilly and Marco, you'll be glad you did.
I have read all of Rich Amooi's Rom-Coms and this one didn't disappoint."Lilliana Jones and the Temple of Groom" is a clean, light hearted romantic comedy. It has quirky characters, amusing banter, and some laugh out loud moments. The hero, Marco, was such a gentleman and so patient with the heroine, Lily. Overall, the book put a smile on my face gave me the entertainment I craved.
I received an ARC of this book for my honest review. Lilliana Jones and the Temple of the Groom is another great book by Rich Amooi. I was really entertained through out the book. The characters in the book are everyday people with real issues that can be related to by the reader. Love and laughter is what this book delivers. I can't wait until the next Rich Amooi book.
A cute story about finding "the one." Lilly is a bit too uptight for my liking, but she does soften up near the end. Marco is adorable, but has very little character growth in the story. Michael Ferraiuolo did a great job narrating the story. Great timing and his character voices were pretty distinct.**I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.**
Such a cute,funny, romantic book right from the begging! Lilly is so ocd and demanding it's funny I love the whole Madam love thing and how her reaction was towards it! And Marco aka hottie he finally finds the woman who he can settle down and not just focus on work they both had me smiling and laughing threw out the book
Lilly and Marco are a great couple, even if Lilly doesn't know it yet. Could not put it down because I needed to know what they situation they would get into next. This book is well written and laugh out loud funny. Will recommend it to anyone in need of fun. If you are looking for a good time, do yourself a favor and read Lilliana Jones and the Temple of Groom. Love all of Rich Amooi books.
This book was not my cup of tea.It tried too hard, and was very dated which is a big strike against it since it was published this year and was written as if it was 2010, with out referencing it was 2010.
Yet another fun, fast read from Rich Amooi. The characters have a variety of adventures on their way to true love. How do a psychic, the Parthenon, lactose intolerance, a picture of the Pope, a bear and Samsung figure into this story? You'll really need to read the whole story to find out!
TempleI adore Rich Amooi. I am addicted to his writing. He is funny, clean, romantic without, to paraphrase Alan Titchmarch, ' all the squishy parts'. Keep it up Rich, you've got a fan for life in me!
I loved this book! It was sweet, cute and so much fun to read. I laughed so hard that I ended up crying and laughing at the same time. If you are feeling a little blue, it will put a smile back on your face.
Very cuteWas a !overly light read full of giggles. Lily and Marcooh how I hope Madam is right on her last prediction a d Rich writes about it.
Sweet bookThis story is so cute and don't mess with the universe. Be open to love and how sweet that she found love and so much more!
This is a fun adventure with snappy dialog and lots of humor. It's clean, funny, and fast paced. I have enjoyed all of Rich Amooi's books. I can depend on him when I want a good laugh.
Ahh, love!Sweet, enjoyable, and funny. A quick read that takes you on a romantic journey away from the everyday chaos of our world. If you open yourself to the universe the miracles will manifest.
FunThis book was fun to read. Not always realistic but I wanted it to be. I enjoyed it and will read more by this author.
A sweet laughThis book was hilarious, romantic, and quite cheesy too. Impressively though, it wasn't overly cheesy, not enough to have you cringing, but enough to make you smile. Note: the funnier moments will make you cringe. Just thinking about the bathroom mishap has me biting my lips. Ugh- it was comically horrendous.This was a sweet story; I didn't like pressing pause whenever reality interrupted, and I sure as hell didn't want the story to end. In some ways, it was only just getting starte [...]
