The Beau & The Belle
– R.S. Grey
Genre : Adult romantic comedy
♥♥♥♥♥ (insert infinite number of hearts here)
First of all, I want to start this post by talking about this amazing author.
There’s no way you have missed my love for R.S. Grey‘s work. It’s all over this blog, my Bookstagram and wherever I talk about books.
I am a true fan of her work and I really feel like there’s no better writer in her genre. Her novels are the perfect romantic comedies. I won’t ever stop recommending her work whenever I can to everyone because I really feel sad for those who haven’t read an R.S. Grey book yet. You’re missing out! So if you want to smile, laugh and fall in love, then pick up one of her book. Her characters are all endearing and you get attached so easily because they’re real! Her plotting is perfection and full of pleasant surprises. I really wish her work was even more recognised.
Apart from her books, R.S. Grey really is one of the most genuine author. Last thing I’ll advise you is to follow her on Instagram. Her stories are fun, real and you get a true behind the scene on her work (also adorable glimpses of her life!). She really is as inspiring as the heroines she writes about. Oh, and she has a Facebook group too! Full of fun interactions and exclusive contents from time to time.

I’m sincerely struggling on how to write my review. I want to stay simple and just say if I liked it or not and why, as I do for any other reads but I can’t talk about Roomies without getting personal. After hesitating a lot, I decided to just write whatever comes to my mind, whatever I feel like writing. This blog is a place I created to share my love of books and I love reading because of how it makes me feel. So here goes and I won’t blame you if you just can’t go through this review (apologies in advance for the ranting, haha!).
Lies Jane Austen Told Me
– Julie Wright
Genre : Contemporary romance
Lies Jane Austen Told Me is the first book I read by author Julie Wright. I didn’t know what to expect when I started it but wasn’t disappointed. This was a great, entertaining contemporary romance and I enjoyed reading it. Also, I absolutely love the cover of this one!
♥ The story ♥
Lies Jane Austen Told Me : Ever since Emma read Pride and Prejudice, she’s been in love with Mr. Darcy and has regarded Jane Austen as the expert on all things romantic. So naturally when Emma falls for Blake Hampton and he invites her home to meet his parents, she is positive an engagement is in her future. After all, Blake is a single man in possession of a good fortune, and thus must be in want of a wife.
But when it turns out that what Blake actually wants is more of a hook-up than a honeymoon, Emma is hurt, betrayed, and furious. She throws herself deeper into her work as CMO of Kinetics, the fastest growing gym franchise in the nation. She loves her work, and she’s good at it, which is why she bristles when her boss brings in a consultant to help her spearhead the new facilities on the East Coast. Her frustration turns to shock when that consultant turns out to be Blake’s younger brother, Lucas.
Emma is determined not to fall for Lucas, but as she gets to know him, she realizes that Lucas is nothing like his brother. He is kind and attentive and spends his time and money caring for the less fortunate.
What she can’t understand is why Lucas continues to try to push her back into Blake’s arms when he so clearly has fallen as hard for her as she has fallen for him. It isn’t until Lucas reveals to Emma that he was adopted into the Hampton family that she begins to understand his loyalty to Blake as well as his devotion to the child April-she is Lucas’s biological niece.
Emma opens up to Lucas about the feelings of abandonment she has harbored ever since she was a child and her mother left the family. As she helps Lucas deal with his past demons, she is able to exorcise some of her own.
Realizing that her love life is as complicated as anything Jane Austen could have dreamed up, Emma must find a way to let Blake know that it’s time for him to let her go and to let Lucas know it’s time for him to love her back.
