Honestly, I’m a sucker for a good romance. Especially now when most of my reading is done on my kobo in the wee hours of morning while my daughter has her feed. There is something about a romance that is simple and hopeful. Something that is very just needed when you’re falling asleep holding a baby. Which meant stumbling across this series felt a little like a godsend.
There was a fun simplicity to this story that didn’t have me wanting to smack either of the lead characters. Not something I can honestly say all that often. There was still the expected romance drama (I mean, it’s a story, you NEED some of that drama). But you could actually understand both motives and mostly just wanted to reach through the pages to hug BOTH the leads.
Through all of the romance and drama, Precious manages to make all of the stakes seem higher. I love when a child (or dog) manages to steal some of the spotlight. Sometimes that’s a bit of comedic relief, Precious just manages to draw your heart into the relationships so much more. Her presence also seriously ups the stakes.
I may find true love and happily ever after to be somewhat believable. The idea that it can happen with a billionaire… well, its a nice little dream there. All in all, that’s probably the part I fins most unrealistic (hopeless romantic here). But, it’s such a nice fantasy that finishing this story left me with a huge grin on my face.
