Product description

About the Author

I was born in England and lived most of my life in Australia before returning to the UK some years ago; my dual nationality means that I am often a bit too cheeky, but will always apologise for it. I have been writing fiction for over thirty years, mostly for the enjoyment of myself and my friends, but writing is my love and my vocation so of course that's where my dreams and ambitions are. In the meantime, technical writing helps to pay the mortgage, while I also have fun with web design, reading, watching movies and television, knitting, and imbibing espresso.

"He didn't have a Happily Ever After of his own yet. Didn't mean he wasn't happy"

I really love the dynamic between Jules, his father Archie and his best friend Jem. They all live together and are incredibly supportive of one another. Archie is The Parent everyone wants. He keeps his son grounded while loving him completely and utterly. Jem is a salty little thing but I adore her.

Throughout the book, Jules is fixated on finding his Happily Ever After just like Mike and Dexter from The True Love Solution. Seeing their relationship as the epitome of HEA he collects all things from their creator Ewan Byge. He buys a typed manuscript with a handwritten word. Then buys a typewriter that was supposedly Ewan Byges. Turns out to be a fraud.

Through the process of the fraud investigation he meets Ewan Byge. The response of Jules is so genuine I had to read through my fingers from the second-hand embarrassment! And to his utter delight he becomes Ewan's accountant.

He also meets Constable Leonard who is working the fraud case and the two quickly develop a friendship. Leonard is kind and steady. He is very dependable. I fell a little in love with him.

There is a slight sprinkling of a potential love triangle, which is not my trope at all, However! The author presents it in such a way that it is endearing rather than angsty. Which I really appreciated because you can't tell which way it's going to go at first.

The end was very neatly wrapped in a bow. A rather hopeful note with a wonderful ending line. "It's only the beginning-and as beginnings go, I think it's brilliant."

Favorite quote-"Oh...It's Dexter and Mike's Happily Ever After- and it's the Once Upon a Time of our story."

Overall thoughts- It was solidly adorable. I will definitely be reading from Julie Bozza again.

The ‘True Love’ Solution by Julie Bozza – 4 stars

This was the first book that I have read by this author and it took me a little while to get used to her flouncy style but once I did I thought it was cute and refreshing. This was a proper romance story not smutty at all but in its own way very sexy and alluring. Jules is such a wonderful character; so colourful and interesting and amusing. His outlook on life is simple – all he wants is his happy every after just like he reads about in his romance novels. Jules loves an author called Ewan Byge and treats himself to some of his memorabilia but when it looks as if he’s been defrauded he consults the police and is allocated PC Leonard to investigate his case. Jules gets to meet his hero Ewan Byge and a mild flirtation occurs but what everyone else can see except Jules, is that Leonard is quietly and stoically falling in love with him. Jules lives with his Dad Archie and his foster sister Jem and their quirky little family welcomes Leonard with open arms – especially when he offers to decorate Archie’s room. Will Jules ever see what’s right in front of him or will he blinded by his crush for Ewan?

I enjoyed this so much – it was well written and properly researched so no distractions from the story line. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to read an amusing feel good old fashioned romance (with a bit of gay sex thrown in for very good measure!)

The ‘True Love’ Solution has no twists or running for one’s life, but it did have beautifully rendered characters set in a well-observed world. Julie is a wonderful writer; she notices the little details of life and her words flow seamlessly and never jar.
Julie summed up the fan element of the story perfectly. As a fan of ‘things’, I recognised the pang of guilt when you buy something expensive, or three of the same object simply because they’re coloured differently. I also connected with waiting for the post (and Bart) and proudly displaying your newly acquired treasure.
Julie cleverly leads you to believe that romantic Jules (the protagonist) will behave in one way, the way that most of us would, but in reality, another way was true.
I loved the mis-matched shoe dash at the end, leaves that make a pittery-pat sound like a tripping heart, and Jules curled up so far he was almost in his dinner.
If you want a bouncy read for spring or a warm fuzzy read for chilly evenings, then The ‘True Love’ Solution will fit the bill.
And I hazard a guess at flibbertigibbet!

4.0 out of 5 stars 4 Stars! 5 Dec. 2016

4 Stars!

Jules, Leonard, and Ewan. I hate books where the protagonist spends most of the book with one person and then just a tiny bit of the story with the person they end up with. That drives me crazy because I want to enjoy seeing the main characters together for more than a scene or two.

The writing was very good and the author is definitely talented. I personally enjoyed how the story started off, even if it seemed to drag in a few parts. However, after a while, I started to get highly irritated by the fact that Jules was still hung up on Ewan and not even thinking of Leonard as more than just a nice guy who's there. While this may be a very realistic situation, I don't particularly find enjoyment reading about it. Therefore, the second half of the story dragged on for longer than I felt the need to.

Leonard was sweet and sincere and from the very beginning, just a down-to-earth likable character. I was rooting for him instantly. Ewan, I didn't care for even though he wasn't a bad guy. I just didn't think he was as endearing as Leonard. As for Jules, I spent most of the book flipping back and forth on whether or not I liked him. I questioned his intelligence the whole time and wasn't at all impressed with his infatuation with Ewan.

It's hard to rate a book where you think the writing is very good technically but don't care for the characters or plot. I probably won't be recommending TheLove Solution to friends but the author is someone I'll keep on eye on for upcoming books. She definitely deserves another chance.

5.0 out of 5 stars I was immersed in this book from the beginning. 1 Feb. 2016
By Sinfully - Published on Amazon.com

4.5 stars
Talk about the worst case of being starstruck and therefore completely blinded leading to missing out on what’s right in front of your nose!!! Well yes, this is the case for Jules. Let me start however with Jules himself. Jules lives with his father and adopted sister in London. A complete hodgepodge of mismatched characters in every way but I love how Julie makes this work and you get to feel the love a family has together from Jule’s adoring and caring father Archie, his sassy and audacious adopted sister Jemima and of course Jules himself. All different but make up a happy little trio due to the love they have for each other; this is Jules’s family.

Sorry, I’m sidetracking…....so back to Jules. Jules practically bursts onto stage from the word go after opening the book. To say Jules is camp would be an understatement - lol - he is positively screaming and so flamboyant, he’s right in your face immediately. However, don’t get me wrong I mean this positively as he is seriously adorable. He meets every gay stereotype that was ever invented but after a while we get to see that he is a very caring and tender soul who believes in nothing more than finding The One and his own HEA with the man of his dreams.

He is the biggest romantic soul on legs and loves his romance novels. He is a complete fangirl for his favourite author Ewan Byge and buys memorabilia online. HIs most favourite novel being The ‘True Love’ Solution.

“There were romances to be read, and therefore all was right with the world.”

I think we can all appreciate that sentiment. However, the trusting soul that he is, he is soon scammed by a shady internet dealer and this leads to a police investigation, enter PC Leonard Edgar. Leonard is your typical caring detective. Yes, he actually cares about people being ripped off, however it soon becomes apparent that he probably cares a little too much for Jules and his case. A little more than professional distance would allow, therefore Leonard still plays the cool cop much to his detriment if you ask me. Due to the investigation Jules is the introduced to Ewan Byge personally. HAHA - oh my did I laugh as I could just imagine the look on Jules’s face when he enters the meeting room with Ewan Byge sat there personally. I could feel him squeeing underneath but as it’s at work in his accountancy firm he has to try and remain professional and keep things together. Yes, Jules has it bad, is starstruck and is completely giddy. Ewan asks Jules to become his personal accountant.

However, as soon as Ewan arrives on the scene I immediately got the slimy vibes that this person is shallow and a bit of a user. He may write romantic novels with HEA’s but he certainly doesn’t abide by what he writes as Jules believes. This is where Jules is taken for a second ride. Deceived online by a shady dealer and now about to be deceived again in the love department by a scummy git for an author. Geez, this was so frustrating! To see Jules blinded by his awe for this author and not see what is in front of his face and that is the adoration from a caring detective who would do anything for him. Everyone could see this, myself, Archie and Jem. They even try to tell him this through subtle and less subtle means which had me laughing too at times as the one thing Jemima isn’t is tactful. She definitely doesn’t beat around the bush and just lays it out there whether you like it or not. But there is also a deep love and caring there for Jules too.

Well, needless to say the disappointment once Jules has his rose tinted specs knocked off his nose is big but waiting in the scenes is the ever patient and caring police constable Leonard Edgar. In many ways they are polar opposites but together they compliment each other perfectly. It takes Jules a while to realise this but Leonard's patience pays off and Jules gets his romantic HEA with The One. Now we can all sigh.

This book has no big angst factor, no biting your nails, no heart breaking break-ups, big tear jerking making up or reunion scenes and no broken characters. It is light on the erotic but thoroughly entertaining as it focuses more on the characters, and what wonderful characters they are too. I was in immersed in this book from the beginning and thanks to Julie’s wonderful writing was introduced to another set of vibrant, lovable characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars A True Love Story! 15 Dec. 2016
By sharon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
A free copy of this book has been provided to me by the author in exchange for a fair and honest review. Jules Madigan, the MC in this book loves love. He is seriously enamored of the works of his favorite author Ewan Byge (pronounced by). So great is his devotion he endeavors to make a high value purchase of memorabilia from a seller who had high ratings on eBay. This was a direct purchase and poor Jules has been defrauded. Enter Constable Leonard Edgar who while working on Jules case facilitates a meeting between Jules and Ewan.

As I read this story the song Torn Between Two Lovers kept coming to mind. The story is well developed with a good foundation, steady progression and the kind of ending which just makes you stand up and cheer. The main characters interact well and the supporting characters keep the story going without being overwhelming. As you watch Jules move between Ewan and Leonard you find yourself rooting for one or the other. Personally, I was Team Leonard, but, to tell you why would spoil the story. You are just going to have to read the book for yourself to find out why, and, I highly recommend that you do.

I rarely award five stars but this book had it all: good story, well written, good editing.
4.0 out of 5 stars Great book!!!! Really Enjoyed! 4 Jan. 2017
By Gretchen A - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This was a family weird book to me. It’s extremely Brittish but that’s not the weird part necessarily. It’s the characters. Jules and his father and sister are a very strange bunch. It’s cute and fun and Jules makes it work the best he can. The fact that he’s chasing the wrong guy for him and the amount of time it takes for him to realize this is a bit strange. But I did enjoy the book very much. Just understand it’s……quarkie.

Jules wants his HEA and he loves books and romance. He’s one of us book geeks and he makes no apologies for it. He will go to great lengths to get a man that will make him happy.

Ewan & Leonard along with Jules make quite a threesome. Not sure that’s exactly what the three want but Jules is determined to have his happy so he’s gonna do what needs to be done.

The end isn’t expected, the beginning was awesome and there is great parts in the middle. Overall there were things I didn’t like but mostly I enjoyed this book very much. It’s different and well written with complex characters.

Highly Recommend!
