Love At First Sight (Southern Bride #1) by Kelly Elliott
Love At First Sight (Southern Bride #1) - Kelly Elliott

 

 

The road to happily ever after is littered with past regrets. Elliott takes off the blinders of first love and exposes a heart's most painful secret. Love at First Sight begins in innocence and matures into heartache. Chloe and Rip are the best of friends, until a pained revelation sets their lives on different courses. Will destiny guide them back to each other? Or have the emotions of the past become a breach that can never be healed? Love at First Sight is a lesson in learning what love is. Elliott dissects the heart with a realism that is tragic, truthful and inspiring. The combination of Elliott, Chloe and Rip packs a one, two punch to the head, heart and soul.

Quirky and engaging characters in a romantic setting
Wish Upon a Duke. 12 Dukes of Christmas Book 3. - Erica Ridley

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for providing me an ARC copy of this novel, which I freely chose to review.

I do not read many novels in this genre, but I am due to translate a novel in the genre from Spanish into English and wanted to do some research by reading some modern novels set in the period.

I have not read any of the other novels in the series, although I understand, from reading some of the reviews, that it is quite popular.

The story seems to be one of opposite attracts, with the man being a stickler for facts and lover of adventures, while the woman loves fantasy and is afraid of travel. As we get to know the characters, we realise that Gloria is knowledgeable and both share a love for technology and astronomy. When she ends up being his matchmaker, we know what to expect. There is love at first sight, a sex-scene that it is explicit but not as detailed as others I have read (and of course, it is wonderful even if it is the first time for her, at least), and a happy ending as required. I quite liked the characters, although they were both quite extreme in their positions, and the speed at which things developed between them required some suspension of disbelief, but I don’t think it was beyond the standards of the genre.

The story is told in the third person, without relying too heavily on descriptions, but provides enough details to help us imagine a romantic setting that perfectly suits the story. It flows well, and it has the usual will they/won’t they moments, without going over the top and making readers get impatient.

A short and light read, with engaging characters and fun moments and although the story is not outstanding for its originality, it should satisfy fans of the genre.

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith
The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight - Jennifer E. Smith

This is a nice little book that covers the space of a day. (American) heroine and (English) hero end up sitting together on a flight from the United States to England, both ducking across the pond for family events.

 

Heroine Hadley’s family was torn to pieces when her father fell in love with an Englishwoman and abandoned them, and now she’s expected to attend the London wedding. This story is as much about family as romance.

 

As for the romance, I think the author managed the culture clash aspects well, and didn’t push things too far over such a short timeframe.

 

A sweet little book overall, though I’m not sure the father deserved to be so easily forgiven!

Reading progress update: I've read 56%.
Try - Ella Frank

Logan began walking toward him, and all Tate could think was, He should always be dressed in wet clothes. As he passed several other waterlogged customers, Tate noticed them looking him over as well, probably wondering how he still looked so appealing when he was just as wet as the rest of them.

Tate took in the water droplets sliding down Logan’s cheek, and his breathing faltered. When those same droplets then continued down to disappear into his shirt—holy shit—Tate knew he wanted to follow them with his tongue, and he wanted it now.
