As we march into spring (yay!) our romance selections are taking on a new hopeful outlook. This month is a month of celebration with Women’s History Month, St. Patrick’s Day, Spring and I’ve been busy reading books that bring out this festive spirit.
Space by Penny Reid
Still an unrepentant slacker (but now also very, very angry).
What’s the worst that could happen?
Mona’s meticulously planned allotment of relaxation is thrown into chaos by the unscheduled appearance of her older brother’s band of friends, including the one person she’d hoped to never face again. Abram still makes her feel entirely too much, which is one of the reasons she disappeared after their one week together. But now, trapped on a mountain of snow and things unspoken, Mona will have to find a way to coexist with Abram, chaos and all
This is the second installment of the series and it opens up years later from the end of Motion. What’s ensued in the in-between is intriguing and I was so surprised with how the story unfolded. I love a STEM heroine and a rock star hero. Opposites attract here and with so much against them, I can’t wait to see how they come together!
Make Me Bad by R.S Grey
I was issued a warning: stay away from Ben Rosenberg.
As Clifton Cove’s resident “king”, he thinks he’s entitled to anyone and anything.
The trouble is, I’ve spent my whole life following the rules and playing it safe. I know what it feels like to be the good girl. I’m the police chief’s daughter and a librarian—for adorable children, no less.
An all-nighter with a fictional hunk is about as exciting as my life gets until one day, fate decides to take pity on me and shove me straight into the path of Mr. Off-Limits himself.
Just as I suspected, every inch of him promises to be my demise. Up close, he’s tall, menacing—a lawyer who looks like he’ll bite. A well-behaved girl would do as she’s told and avoid him at all costs, but I’m overdue for a little rebellion.
So, I ignore the warning and throw caution to the wind. But Ben doesn’t just nudge me out of my comfort zone—he thrusts me into a dark corner and presses his hard body against mine, covering my mouth with his hand to ensure we don’t get caught sneaking around. In that moment, I finally understand why everyone thinks he’s going to ruin me.
To him, this is all a game.
He wants to tempt me with his dares and taunt me with his words.
I should play along. After all, I asked him to make me bad. I just never thought he’d take his job quite so seriously.
R.S Grey has been hitting it out of the park. This book is so funny and has plenty of cute banter between the hero and the heroine. They come from different worlds and come together in a rather unexpected way. I loved every second of this book and read it from start to finish with a smile on my face.
Glass Castle Prince by Nicole Williams
A glass castle shatters as easily as a glass house—all it takes is one stone.
Prince Edward has known this all of his life, and taken staunch measures to ensure he doesn’t give the public any reason to pick up their rocks. Or torches. Or pitchforks. As a twenty-two-year-old in line to ascend the throne, he lives more like a cloistered monk than his college-aged peers. Restraint is the tone of his life, resilience the theme.
That is, until he meets a young woman who couldn’t care less about his title—unless she’s poking fun at it. Charlotte Everly grew up a stone’s throw away from the royal family’s summer house, but her life was, and is, entirely different from the prince’s.
They clash at each turn, disagree on every topic, and bear a general contempt for one another. Until . . .
One night, accompanied by one proposal, leads to one lapse in judgment . . .
Results in a nationwide scandal neither of them will escape.
Who doesn’t love a Royal Romance?! Rounding out my month is this royal couple. Nicole Williams writes sweet romances that always come with a little bite and this doesn’t disappoint. This isn’t your regular Cinderella story, be ready for feisty heroines and forbidden romance.
This month delivered unexpected twists and celebrations of self. I loved not knowing what was going to happen next in these stories and the strong heroine presented. I’m ready for next month to bring on more surprises, are you?
