I am going let you in on secret ….I READ ROMANCE NOVELS! HOT DASHING HEROES, SASSY LADIES, SEXY TIMES AND LOVE!
so yeah. I really, really, really, really like to reading them. I am sucker for happy ending. They guarantee a happy ending every time. Sometimes I need that because….well, life.
Reading romance novels are like eating movie popcorn. (Side note: I love movie popcorn and the day I discovered how many calories I was eating I was devastated. I just less of it now.) I would read them all the time. However, my brain would rot and I would end thinking like a character in rom-com movie or soap opera. And that would not be good! Now I only read them as “palette cleansers” or on vacation.
Guess what? We just had a four holiday…whoop, whoop! Check out what I read:
Body and Soul can be best describe as black Bridget Jones with lots of sex. While I found the sex scenes quite fun, the plot of British Idol meets Scandal left me a little disappointed. I wanted to be wowed but I wasn’t. This was a bit of clunker.
While Mystic Park, however, was home run. It had some of my favorite things: a small town, first love being revisited, close knit community, a sassy mother-figures, a passionate man and a smart stubborn woman. It’s a story about learning to appreciate the little things. It is a journey of growth and change. It takes a trip back home to Trinity Falls for Benita (leading lady) to learn the value of all she has left behind. Regina Hart’s heartwarming tale of life’s surprising moments is a wonderfully written look at the stages of life and the lessons learned.
And the upside there are 3 more books in “Finding Home” series. Mystic Park is the latest installment. All the stories are based in Trinity Falls, Ohio. A small college town with a large thriving black community. If you are in the mood for reading cozy romantic romp, I heart it.
