Comments Queen of the Universe

  • Elle ✦ Pretty Little Books ✦

    Release Date:October 17, 2015 Genre:Chick Lit and Humor Lately it has been really hard to find a fun and engaging chick lit book that keeps my interest but Geralyn Corcillo has changed this for me. I really enjoyed reading this book. It's got the perfect amount of humor and romance and character development and banter (which is crucial) was perfect. I loved the whole idea surrounding the plot and really became invested in both of the characters lives. This my friends, is how all books should be [...]

    Successful showrunner Lola Scott's dream of writing her own television drama series is about to become a reality. But she hasn't been able to cast the perfect leading man for the role of Sam Destry, a brooding bounty hunter, and the deadline to shoot the pilot show is two weeks away. That's all about to change when handsome handyman Arlen Black shows up at the studio and turns her world upside down! Lola knows that she has to get Arlen to agree to play the role, and she'll do whatever it takes!I [...]


  • Bethany Clark

    I love the concept of this book! Real world meets Hollywood Glam! It will pull you in right from the very beginning! Lola Scott is a TV Writer who can work wonders on just about any TV issue that can happen! Now, can she turn HER TV show into reality or will she go down in history for this one failure never to be heard from again?Lola and Ray (her trusty sidekick who is truly hilarious on all accounts) are in troubleey can't find anyone to play the part of Sam, the mysterious man that lives next [...]

    Originally posted on: albainbookland/2016/01 I really enjoyed Geralyn Corcillo's debut, Miss Adventure, so I was very excited to read her second novel. In Queen of the Universe we meet TV writer Lola. She is talented, knows what she is doing and has been given the opportunity to run her own show, so everything needs to go perfectly. Slight problem though, they can't find their perfect leading man. Here's when Arlen enters the action, he is perfect for the role but he is not actor!I loved the con [...]


  • Leslie

    On this book it titled "Queen of the Universe: a romantic comedy"But it isn't it is a romantic drama.While there are several funny premises and sitcom-esque misunderstandings there is a vast amount of drama and tragedy mixed in.When Super Story runner, Lola Scott, is about to lose her big break because she can't cast Sam in her new 1 hour drama. When Arlen Black arrives she freaks him out, since he's a renovator not an actor. Of course he's a natural and she spends days luring him to the show.H [...]


  • Jennifer Collin

    Queen of the Universe is funny, heart-warming and original. Geralyn Corcillo creates one-of-a-kind characters I've previously described as delightfully flawed. I much prefer to read characters who are struggling their way through the emotional confusion of modern adulthood, than perfect characters whose story revolves around their circumstances. Geralyn's characters make mistakes. They do silly things. Sometimes you want to reach into the book and tell them to open their eyes. But their fooli [...]

    Queen Of Creating Quirky CharactersLola Scott is a TV writer in charge of putting together a pilot show. Everything is going well apart from one thing. She has no leading man. She despairs of finding the perfect Sam. Until she sees Arlen Black, the handyman hired to fix her house, that is. She knows he'd be perfect for the role and all she needs to do is convince him to give it a go. She tries everything in her power to win him over. And she does, in more ways than one.Ms Corcillo has created no [...]

    What a fun-filled and delightful read! Talk about a lady on a mission with the backbone to go after what she wants to succeed - that's Lola for you. I was pulling for Lola and Arlen so I wasn't surprised with the outcome. The kids added an unexpected twist that added to the story. I am loving the In Love in the Limelight series and cannot wait to read Geralyn's next novel.I received a free copy of this book and voluntarily chose to review.


  • Sandi Blaylock

    Just plain funI have enjoyed this book from first word to the last. It's just a really really good book. Funny to sad back to funny to everything. It's different but I loved it. Again. Really really good!!!!!


  • Hailey Mansfield

    So funny! And unique - the characters are a breath of fresh air. You get to read dialogue that is completely original, spun in a way that only this author can deliver. Love this book!


  • Patricia Flanagan

    I thought the book was great! Sensitive and saucy Lola Scott has finally written her own TV drama series. Now she just has to finish casting it. So far finding a moody handsome bounty hunter type man has been unsuccessful. To carpenter Arlen Black becoming an actor is not a dream come true. He has other obligations and responsibilities. He just came to go over some details about Lola's house renovations! but that doesn't deter Lola from roping him in. No Spoilers hereLets just say that Arlen get [...]


  • Debbie "Buried in Her TBR Pile"

    I absolutely loved Miss Adventure (aka She Likes It Rough/She Likes It Tough) by this author. I have re-read it a couple of times. When I saw the link to this one in the back of MA, I checked it out as a AMZ Prime Loan because I couldn't wait to read it. This one is a solid 3.5 star read for me. To round or not to round? Immediately after reading, I thought I would not round. Then, I kept thinking about it and decided to round.The book blurb does a good job describing the basics of the book/plot [...]


  • Sara

    Reviewed for Chick Lit Central (chicklitcentral)There is a definite love story between Lola and Arlen, but love never comes easy. Sometimes, it can be a rocky road to romance, especially when you hold onto secrets and don’t want to divulge what could be damning information. I really appreciate the backstory for both characters. It helped to explain and define why they are the way they are, and for most of the book I wondered, “are they going to be together? Will this work out, or are they be [...]

I could tell it was going to be a fun read!I absolutely loved this novel! It was filled with humor, drama and love. Geralyn wrote two fantastic leads with a wonderful supporting cast.

  • Glynis Astie

    I have been waiting for this book to come out for so long! Ms. Corcillo took my breath away with her debut novel, Miss Adventure. (Seriously, I couldn't stop laughing!) Never in my life have I come across an author who is so full of humor, passion and good old-fashioned charm. From her novels to her short stories, I have been engrossed since the very beginning. She's THAT good. In Queen of the Universe, we meet the great Lola Scott, a woman who has finally achieved her dream of being a showrunne [...]


  • Grace Augustine

    Absolutely incredible!I can't remember when I've enjoyed a book as much as I did this one! It's a comedic, sweet, romantic, quirky book, and very difficult to put down. I immediately fell in love with the characters Strong and of substance. Ms. Corcillo has captured my interest and I can't wait to read the next in this series. Hoping she will give Ray his own book. Great job of writing. I wasn't tripped up once with grammatical, spelling, or verbiage errors. Great uniquely original story line. I [...]


  • Christine

    A great weekend read by Geralyn! I really enjoyed this novel, it was funny, well written and it flowed so well. Lola, the main character gives you a good laugh throughout the novel and I totally loved Arden, he’s welcome to come and fix my house anytime:) Well done to Geralyn Corcillo for another entertaining read!


  • Francesca

    In the span of a few days I became a huge fan of Geralyn Corcillo bookse is able to portray believable primary and secondary characters.The storyline is also very good and I was hooked from the beginning.


  • Argie Maniati

    3.5 starsWhenever I sense a slump coming my way I'm looking for something funny and light hearted to keep me out of it. Romance, contemporary and relatively short Queen of the Universe is just what I needed at the moment and I really enjoyed reading it!!


  • Mary Stockwell

    Great book! What an entertaining book this is. I so enjoyed reading this that I can't wait to read her other books . It's a new and unusual storyline dealing with things we all deal with every day . Humor , romance, self-doubt , and drama of every day life . I loved it


  • Marianela

    Change of paceThis is a cute story, even though it has elements of girl meets boy, it has some good twists and makes an interesting plot. The author really has a grip on the characters and reveals their past, & their problems in an empathic way. Good read for all age groups.


  • ItaPixie

    I liked this book,it was funny and sweet.Lola and Arlen seem so different from each other,they come from two different worlds,the first is a crazy Hollywood showrunner and the other is a broody handyman, but the reader cannot not to grow fond of them and root for them.


  • Ashley

    My friend urged me to read this and I was like "yeah yeah" but I had insomnia so I started to read iten I couldn't put it down. I stayed up all night, finished it, and now I'm dead tired but wanting more. Suffice to say, I adored this book. Humorous, quirky, fun fun fun!


  • Janet Miller

    This was the second book I've read by this author (the other bein Miss Adventure). and I liked this one as much as the first. I will look for more from this author. The writing was easy to follow and the story flowed nicely. I like the characters she creates.
