Thoughts: So here it is…the ONLY books my Davidson I’ve ever liked were her Alaskan Royals series and let me tell you I was very upset we didn’t get the rest of that family’s books as there was a major mystery that wasn’t solved by the end of the last book. So when I got this book and read the letter from Davidson in the beginning of it I knew I had another Alaskan Royals like book on my hands and I had to read it immediately.
I’m so glad I did because this book is full of everything I love about romantic comedy books and everything I love about romance books in general. There were times when she pulls a Deadpool and talks to the reader via those notes at the bottom of the page whose name I can’t remember at the moment and I LOVED those.
Then there’s the story in general that had me laughing out loud so many times for a variety of reasons. From the horse Blake names Margret of Anjou and to how he calls his brother Rake the terrible and their texts and phone calls. Then there’s the nuclear option that had me confused until I no longer was.
Natalie and her reaction to Blake had me laughing so many times. She really wanted to hate him and make him suffer but they way he reacted to everything had her liking and then loving him.
I have to say the cast of characters in this book reminds me of why I loved the Alaskan Royals so much and how much I’ve missed reading these types of books.
If you’re looking for a great read that will get you banned from reading in bed because you’re laughing then you won’t want to miss this book…or Rake the terribles book USA Dead Ahead coming out this fall.
