Brenda is done with dating altogether, but still wants to have children someday. Then she meets a Marius, piano tuner who needs help getting a green card. She decides to risk it and asks him to marry her.
What I Liked
- This book is SO CUTE. I keep going back to reread certain scenes because I just love how the characters interact.
- I loved Marius. He’s pleasantly different from any other romantic interest I’ve read. He’s positive and down to earth and doesn’t let things “ruffle his feathers”. In some ways, I would love if my personality reflected his! He also dreams of becoming an opera singer, which was another thing I’ve never really seen in romance novels. It was fun to see a new career/personality than I was used to.
- Although it’s been years since I’ve seen it, I think this book was loosely based on La Traviata, the opera by Giuseppe Verdi. So that’s pretty cool.
- This is another “fade-to-black” romance so you don’t have adult content distracting from the plot of the novel.
What I Didn’t Like
- This book is shorter than many novels, so it didn’t have as many twists and turns. However, the length and complexity seemed to match the character’s stories perfectly. I wouldn’t change anything about this book, it just wasn’t worthy of a five star rating. (Does that make sense?)
If you like fade-to-black romance novels, you’ll probably love this one.
