Chick Lit

Chick Lit

Do you want to consider issues related to women, but perhaps not with the depth and heaviness that can come in the Women's Fiction ebook genre? Are you looking for something more upbeat and more humorous?  Then, ebooks in the Chick Lit genre are just what you need.  What else do you need?  Free and discounted ebooks in the Chick Lit genre, of course!

 

Definition of the "Chick Lit Genre": The characteristics of an ebook in the Chick Lit genre are that they typically address issues in the contemporary time, and they address womanhood issues for younger women (i.e., the "Chick" in "Chick Lit").  These ebooks are more upbeat and sometimes humorous than typical Women's Fiction or Contemporary Romance ebooks.  In fact, ebooks in the Chick Lit genre don't necessarily have to deal with romance, as that is not a central aspect of the genre.  More important for the protagonist in these ebooks is her relationship with family and friends, and how those relationships help her grow as a woman. 

 

Some examples of bestselling ebooks in the Chick Lit genre are Marian Keyes (Watermelon), Terry McMillan (Waiting to Exhale), and Helen Fielding (Bridget Jones's Diary).

by Erin Lynn


What good is a witch with no magic?

I’m Lexi Balefire and I wear a lot of hats, but none of them are tall and pointy. I spend half my time making love matches that last forever, and the other half trying to keep my faerie godmothers from turning each other into toads. Or worse.

I come from a long line of witches, some of them wicked, but none of that will matter if my magic doesn't awaken before midnight on my next birthday. If I miss that deadline, I'll never be a true witch.

If my mother and grandmother hadn't used their magic to kill each other, one of them might have been able to give me the keys to the mystery and I'd be one step closer to claiming my Fate Weaver heritage.

Now, I guess I'll have to figure it out on my own.


The Fate Weaver series featuring the enchanting Lexi Balefire, matchmaking witch, has elements of mystery, romance, and the supernatural. It's an urban fantasy with lots of humor and a cozy mystery feel.

Project Kaitlyn (The Sweet Water Circle Book 1)

by Grayson Avery


Sweet Water, we have a project....

Meet Kaitlyn Colby, a clumsy, inappropriate blurter with self-esteem issues, but also quite handy with an axe. She's certainly no superhero, but she fights the battles of a single mom with sweet snarkasm. Between work and pining for and co-parenting with her man-child ex (is there any other kind?), Kaitlyn has no time to find that special someone. And if she did, would he really want her anyway? Kaitlyn's sister and friends (The Sweet Water Circle) say yes, so following a typical Kaitlyn slip up, The Circle intervenes to force her out of the funk that she fell into following her unwanted divorce.

When Kaitlyn makes a decision to pursue her advertising career over love, she tumbles (like no tumble you've ever seen…or heard) into the life of hunky, bay breeze-drinking Hunter Dixon, an ad exec who is intrigued enough by Kaitlyn that he hires her firm to revive a struggling project, much like herself.

Can Kaitlyn become the woman she needs to be to land the man of her dreams? Maybe. Maybe not. But you'll laugh out loud as she tries. There's no doubt you'll be rooting for the lovable, hilarious, and relatable Kaitlyn. And you'll probably love her friends, too, which is good, because their stories are ready to be told in the Sweet Water Circle series!

Project Kaitlyn could be the funniest book you ever read. It's a hilarious romantic comedy that speaks the truth (well, most of the time) about life and love, and…hiking thongs? What the heck is that? Well, you'll just have to read it to find out!

She's just his secretary…until he needs someone on his arm to convince his mother that he can take over the family business. Then Callie becomes Dawson's girlfriend—but just in his text messages…but maybe she'll start to worm her way into his shriveled heart too.

Callie:
Dawson Houser makes sure everyone who comes into the office knows I'm "just his secretary."

Heck, I've even said it to suppliers and CEOs when they smile knowingly at the two of us during business meetings. He scowls and grumps around the office afterward, as if the two of us dating is the most ridiculous thing on the planet.

Dawson can handle them. I can handle them—and him too, once they leave. And he's no picnic, let me tell you.

Who can't we handle?

His mother.

When Lila Houser comes to town with her faux furs and fashion sunglasses, she only has one question for her spoiled rotten son: When are you going to get married, Dawson, darling?

I expect him to laugh and tell her he's never getting married. I mean, I've heard those exact words come out of his mouth.

Instead, he pulls me to his side and says, "Maybe sooner than you think, Mother."

Oh, that Lila Houser can make a woman feel two inches tall with a simple up-down look. I think I'm a pretty good catch...no matter what my last three boyfriends say.

When Lila says, "I thought Callie was just your secretary," I suddenly want to prove her dead wrong...

Get ready to laugh out loud in this hilarious, sweet workplace romantic comedy! The romance is clean, the jokes witty, and the office grump swoon-worthy. Read today!
