Review: Reluctantly in Love by Niecey Roy
ABOUT THE BOOK: White picket fences and fairy tale endings aren’t in Roxanna Moss’s vocabulary. If she’s learned anything at all from her parents’ failed relationships, it’s to keep a lid on her emotions and the walls secure around her heart. As a PI in training by day and a writer by night, she doesn’t have time for a relationship, anyway.
What she didn’t plan on was Dr. Walker…
Chase Walker’s piercing blue eyes and sexy smile make it difficult to keep her heart in check. Even solving the biggest case of her career can’t distract her from the irresistible man heating up her sheets. Chase has her questioning everything she thought she knew about relationships, and denial can’t change the fact that she’s falling madly, deeply, and reluctantly in love.
REVIEW: Roxana Leigh Moss is the main character of this story. She is the best friend of Lexie and Gen (Another Shot at Love and Done with Love shares their happily ever afters). Roxana has had a tough life in the love and family department due to her parents constantly fighting, arguing, abandoning her and leaving her in Nebraska by herself. She has always looked at men as if they were always one step closer towards the door and love wasn’t EVER going to happen for her. But, she had never been more wrong! Roxana is the sassy, crazy, daredevil that every woman wishes she could be. The author really gives her character some added flare in the first two books. But, when it comes to her story, the author throws in her insecurities and fears lying up under that pride. She meets Chase Walker and he is one of those characters that you just love immediately. He is fun, he knows how to handle everything manly, and he’s a sucker for humor. Both characters mesh well in this love story and I was sad when the ending strolled around all too soon. The character that I enjoyed the most was Richard. He is so geeky, but also kind and when he is not oblivious to the women in his life, he would do anything for his three new best friends. I would only hope that the author decides to write his happily ever after as book four and finality of this series. This world that the author has created with Gen and Matt, Lexie and Leo, as well as Roxana and Chase are all so terrific and absolutely invigorating books to read. I recommend them all, but I really enjoyed Roxanna’s story the most. I thought that I would enjoy Lexie’s story the most but Roxana’s really made me laugh and enjoy laughing throughout the read. It is nice to be enthralled with the seriousness of the connection between both characters but humor is one of the sparks that keeps me in the moment. I give this read five stars like all the rest of her “What’s Love” Series because they were truly fantastic.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Once upon a time, there was a young girl who wrote sappy poetry about every relationship gone wrong. She had her heart broken many times before the man of her dreams stepped off a big Navy ship and swept her off her feet, promising to never hold her shoe obsession against her.
From that day forward, she swore she’d never again write sappy poetry of unrequited love. Instead, a sucker for smooches and happily-ever-afters, Niecey Roy now writes contemporary romancer inspired by her sailor’s sexy brown eyes and charming sense of humor.
She is the author of the River Bend Series, the What’s Love series, and Fender Bender Blues, a single-title romance.
