Hello! I have died from the adorbs and I'm writing this review from the other side. It's no secret that I love the Reluctant Royals series to pieces, so much so, that I'm actually willing to read novellas from her. Can't Escape Love is one of the best novellas I have ever read. It was fun, sweet, and cheered me up from start to finish. If you've read this series then you already know the heroine, Reggie. I loved getting to know Reggie. I already knew she was going to be an awesome heroine, but she just completely blew me away. I'm sure you've already noticed from the cover, but Reggie is wheel-chair bound. She doesn't let that stop her from anything, however. She embraces her disability, runs an epic and successful business, and she's an all-around great woman. I loved getting to know her on a deeper level in Can't Escape Love. Reggie also suffers from insomnia and the one thing that helps her relax is Gus' relaxing voice. Circumstances lead Gus and Reggie to work together on his anime-based escape room. The two forge a friendship together that slowly develops into more. I really liked Gus' character too. He had me smiling at his geekiness and swooning at what a great guy he was. Reggie and Gus worked brilliantly as a pair. Alyssa Cole builds their connection so beautifully. I could see these two falling in love with each other right in front of my eyes. If you haven't read the Reluctant Royals series yet, you must change that ASAP. It truly is an exceptional romantic series! I'm so excited that Alyssa Cole is not done with this series and universe she's created. My body is totally ready for more!




BRIDAL BOOT CAMP

I'm so excited that we're getting new Meg Cabot books. I couldn't wait to read Bridal Boot Camp. I buddy read it with my friend, Jasprit. I have to say I wasn't expecting Bridal Boot Camp to feel so short. It still had the quintessential Meg Cabot writing and feelings, but it was hardly enough time to get to know of the characters all that well. It's a cute story of Rob, a physical trainer, and Ryan, a sheriff, who ends up accidentally taking one of her bridal boot camp classes. Rob is fiercely attracted to Ryan and is intrigued by him. As you can imagine, it was a bit hard to truly care for the romance here as there wasn't much development. Overall, I did really like Rob and Ryan, but I can't really say they are a favorite couple. I did like getting to know the cute island though and I look forward to meeting more of the characters in No Judgements, which will be Rob's best friend's story. Thankfully for me, that one will be a full-length story.
