Book Review: The M-Word by Beverly Farr

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Summary

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?)

In Conclusion

If you like fade-to-black romance novels, you’ll probably love this one.

Book Review: Forgotten Honeymoon by Beverly Farr

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐

Summary

After a car accident, Kelly wakes up having forgotten three weeks of her life. She isn’t concerned, and resumes where (she thinks) she left off. However, she soon discovers that she’s pregnant – which, to her recollection, shouldn’t be possible! The book follows her as she tries to piece together what happened during those three weeks and figure out who the baby’s father is.

What I Liked

  • This is probably one case in which I really like amnesia being part of a book. It was fun to discover and piece together things as the character did. It was also fun to see the other characters around her acting differently than she expected because she forgot conversations and events with them.
  • This was, of course, another cute romance. Which I seem to be reading a lot of these days. It also doesn’t contain any on-screen adult content (only fade-to-black), which is nice.
  • This book was a quick read, which was also nice.

What I Didn’t Like

  • Some of the interactions between characters seemed exaggerated or unrealistic. It was a pretty cute read, it just wasn’t a “wow, amazing” sort of read.

In Conclusion

If you’re looking for a cute, fade-to-black sort of romance then you might enjoy this book.
