A Little Bit Naughty by Farrah Rochon - My Thoughts
A Little Bit Naughty - Farrah Rochon

This is the second novella in the Moments in Maplesville series and it was as entertaining as the first.  Now, I know I'm supposed to be reading my holiday stories, but I got fooled into thinking this was another Christmas story.  Well, fooled... I didn't pay enough attention.  *LOL*

 

Anyway, we meet another pair of charming main characters, Jada (a bestie of the heroine of the 1st book) and Mason, a couple who have known each other since high school and disliked each other since high school.  

 

While it might seem that the enemies to lovers happens awfully quick, I'm reminded of the day way back in time, that John Goldie (who was just a guy in my class) said something innocuous to me and I was instantly in love.  *LOL*  So I'm willing to give Jada and Mason a pass.  

 

The author seems to have cut down on the fanatical use of descriptors in this book - YAY!  But I realised that whatever happened to Jada to 'pique her interest' went directly to her nipples.  SO many nipples.  Nipples galore.  Too many effing nipples.  *LOL*  Honestly, there are other ways/responses that women feel when they get turned on.

 

So yes, this was an entertaining read and I'll probably read more in the series should the chance arise.  And once again, this is a story about POC written by a WOC.

A Perfect Holiday Fling by Farrah Rochon - My Thoughts
A Perfect Holiday Fling (Moments in Maplesville) - Farrah Rochon

Farrah Rochon is an author I see mentioned many times in my Twitter feed by the romance authors I follow, so I figured it was about time I checked her out.  

 

A Perfect Holiday Fling is the first of the Moments in Maplesville novellas which seem to all circle around holidays, and I found it quite enjoyable and perfect for the Christmas season.  

 

I liked the characters, but as always, I bemoan the fact that there just isn't enough time in a novella to really get to know them, but what we do get is pretty good.  I enjoyed the instant chemistry between the two MCs as well as the fact that Stefan's young 5 year old nephew wasn't perfectly precocious as so many kids in romances tend to be.  

 

My one problem with this book was that the author likes her descriptors a little too much for my taste.  Adjectives abound all over the place.  Now I'm all for giving the reader a picture, God knows, but I often felt as if I was being inundated with colours and textures and brand names and all kinds of other stuff.  

 

But I did like the book.  :)  Perfect read for the holiday season.

 

And for those that search them out, this is a book written by a WOC and about POC.

العرب الأصل والصورة - مصطفى الفقي loved this story. short sweet, but with enough meat to satisfy. Mason was freaking sexy as hell and Jada was completely loveable. Their backstory was exactly what i wanted in a smalltown romance. And Jada knew the struggle of being broke, broke, broke. AMEN! i can't wait to read another of Rochon's stories.
