BLOG TOUR! The Story of Us by Ellen Faith

Becca's Books joined the blog tour for the sensational Ellen Faith's The Story of Us! 
After reading this gorgeous novel, I have come to realise that there are a very select few that can really catch the essence of writing a true chick-lit story, and Ellen Faith managed to do that. A beautiful story full of giggles, girly banter and romance, this really caught my attention, and I'm patiently awaiting for some more loveliness from Ellen Faith. 

The blurb

Alexandra Jones has a pretty peachy life. A gorgeous, stinking rich fiance', her sleazy boss is retiring which means an imminent promotion in a job she loves, and she gets her best friend's Jimmy Choos when she dies, although she would prefer her best friend to stick around as long as possible. Obviously. 

But when a blast from the past turns up on her doorstep just as her world turns upside down, she decides to take her best friend, Rosie, up on her offer of a 10 day break in San Francisco. Whilst Rosie works on a fashion shoot and Alexandra becomes well acquainted with the photographer's brother, it becomes clear that this trip is one that will change their lives forever.

The fabulous author has also provided me with a tasty little excerpt from The Story of Us to tease you all... Here it is...

Now, I firmly believe that every woman has that one song that turns them into, let's face it, a bit of a wannabe stripper. Inhibitions go out the window as we do a bit of gyrating and swing our hips sexily thinking we're the hottest thing out there. For Rosie and I, this song is Dirrty. 

No words are spoken, just a simple look is exchanged, and before Ryan or James know what's happening, we are out of our seats and onto the dance floor, gyrating like we're 18 again. 

Now a lot happens in the next few seconds, and it's amazing how quickly you can sober up. By the time I can process everything Ryan and James are are by my side saving the day. 

Rosie has always had a tendency to get a little too into her stripper songs, and my sobering moment was the moment she stepped onto a young couples table and flashed her very expensive - or so I'm informed - silky thong at the whole club. Her twerking is pretty admirable for someone her age but the high kicks pushed it too far. Glasses flew, alcohol was spilled, voices were raised, screams were heard and a punch was thrown. She's a very mean drunk is Rosie. 

It wasn't a pretty sight seeing her manhandled by James as he carried her away, his arm gripping her tightly around the waist, which was currently where her black glittery skirt was resting, but there really was no other option. 

"Put me down. That little poison dwarf is going to get what's coming to her! James! Down. Now."

"I'm not releasing you until we're a safe distance from the club, the last thing you want is a night in the slammer." Credit where it's due, James is strong and Rosie can't wriggle free for the life in her.

Author Bio 

Ellen lives in the wonderful county of Yorkshire, England where she spends most of her time baking, eating, baking and eating. Occasionally she does leave the house to go to the cinema or do some some food shopping though. 

After spending years with an overactive imagination, she decided to put all the magic in her head to some good use and put finger to laptop where The Story of Us was born and became her debut novel. 

She loves to travel, her favourite destinations so far have all been in America, hence the love of all thing, and all people, American. The food rocks pretty hard too, she ate until her jeans begged her to stop whilst she was there. True fact. 

Aside from day dreaming and eating, Ellen is a sucker for a lolcat, penguins and monkeys - she has never claimed to be normal.
