Scot on the Rocks/Jack With a Twist Book Giveaway!

I am thrilled to announce my next book giveaway. Author Brenda Janowitz offered me the chance to offer not one, but two of her books to give away on my blog! Scot on the Rocks [review] and Jack With a Twist [review] are funny and heartwarming chick lit novels that I thoroughly enjoyed, and thanks to Brenda, they both could be yours!

So, what do you do in order to win this wonderful prize package? For one entry, leave a comment on this post answering this question: what would you do if you were forced to work against your significant other, as Brooke is in Jack With a Twist [review]? Would you recuse yourself, or are you competitive enough to want to win? (If you don’t understand this question, read the Jack With a Twist summary and review).

For a second entry, blog about the giveaway and link back here. For a third entry, find a review of mine that you like and Stumble it, making sure to tell me which post you stumbled. This contest will run until Sunday, January 4 at midnight. I’ll announce the winner on Monday, so make sure I have a way to contact you. US only, please.

And finally, if you enjoy book giveaways (as we all do), subscribe to Brenda’s blog – you’ll learn about some great authors and have the chance to win many more books!


  1. I would definitely recuse myself. I think both hubby & I would end up trying to help each other. Married 31 years and still going strong! I haven’t read any of her books bout I’d love to!

  2. I think I’m competitive with my sister.. but with other people, I tend to try to avoid awkward and tense situations. So I’ll most likely just recuse myself.

    I blogged about this giveaway on my links page here:

    Thanks. =)

  3. the thing is there is a third party involved, the client. Iwould do what is necessary to do my job first. Cold hearted that may seem, that is what I would do. I would hope though that the issue wouldn’t come up.

    Anyway I am putting a link on my blog under contests

  4. I’m competitive enough to want to win!

  5. Boy now that would be a learning and growing experience, ie: working with sign other. I guess I would go in wanting to win and would settle making it a win/win for all involved, if possible!
    Thanks so much, I’d love to read either of these books!

  6. No need to enter me, S. I’m just dropping in to say thanks for the e-mail. I’ve got this posted at Win a Book for you.

  7. I would go in wanting to win but would probably back off and try to make it so both would win in the end.

  8. I would lose. I couldn’t go up against my husband. Thanks for the contest!


  9. I’m fiercely competitive, so I’m sorry to say I would want to win… and I’d have to put my job first. But I would like to think I wouldn’t get too nasty about it! My boyfriend was once my supervisor/coworker, so I guess have a teensy bit of experience in that department. Though we tried to leave everything at work just at work, and keep our personal stuff separate, too.

    I’d love to be entered! Thanks šŸ™‚

  10. I’m not nearly as competitive as I use to be so I would probably have to recuse myself to stay sane in my personal life. I would think that it would be hard for any couple to go against each other in court but it must happen. It does all of the time on TV! These books sound like a good read after the hectic holiday season. I enjoyed your reviews too. Please include me in the contest and I’ve added it to my blog. Thanks and happy new year!


  11. To be honest, I don’t think that I could be competitive. Rather, I would be what I would have to be to get the job done, but I wouldn’t be cut throat. I would work hard, do my best and try to come out on top.

    I also blogged about this contest:

    And I subscribed!


  12. Thanks for a great contest. I would have to recuse myself. I am fairly competitive but this could cause problems at home, so I would definitely step aside.

  13. If I were to be working w/ my significant other – I would totally get competitive and try to win. I am not a sore loser and I can guarantee that we’d have our own “little award” for the one who wins. But yea, I’d totally give it my all and hope to win.

  14. I’m pretty competitive and sometimes let it get the best of me. I’d probably end up winning the case and losing the fiance!

  15. I am not competitive enough. If forced to work with my partner i would mostly try and resolve or confront the issues we might have if any. Else I might just leave. Please enter me if international.

  16. I am just a competitive girl. I think I would definitely battle it out, though this would be one of those times I would have an attack of conscience and end up giving in a bit. There’s an ambivalent answer for you. lol

    I would love to be entered.

    I did post the contest in my sidebar feature, but if it doesn’t count for a second entry, no worries.

  17. Great blog! I really enjoy reading what other people like about books.

  18. Oh, it’s on baby! I would totally compete against him and winning is only half of the fun. LOL

  19. I would definitely recuse myself.


  20. In that case, I think I’d stay in the running, that is unless the competition got out of hand!

    Thanks for the giveaway šŸ™‚

    Bring it on. I would play to win and beat him!

  22. Totally competitive. Having worked in the corporate world for 13 years it’s hard not to be competitive.
