3.5 Mr Romance Stars
This was a fun and sexy ROM-COM with a charming, romantic hero who just happens to love reading romance books.
Knox is a librarian who is a also known as Mr Romance. He is a book blogger with a love for romance books. If I’m going to be honest, I’m not really swooning over a hero who is a romance novel enthusiast. Am I being sexist? Probably but it’s just my preference. In any case once I looked past that I did really get to love Knox because he was seriously sexy and endearingly romantic.
The heroine Parker had tons of self esteem issues. She had a hard time in high school and despite the fact that she has outgrown her awkward phase and is successful in her career, she is nervous about going to her high school reunion. Knox is some serious eye candy and he is well known and loved as Mr. Romance. So while she doesn’t actually think he would be interested in her, she proposes that Knox pretend to be her fake fiancee and escort her to the reunion to impress her old classmates.
“You’re still like a chocolate cupcake while I’m that weird lemon-white chocolate cookie people always pick last because it’s weird.”
Parker’s inner dialogue was hilarious! Both her thoughts and speech were running like a mile a minute. She was so socially awkward at times but in a fun, quirky way. Some jokes fell a little flat for me but there were definitely some funny feel good moments.
Knox really helped Parker gain confidence and learn to own her beauty. The chemistry between these two was scorching. I loved that there was some build up and anticipation between these two. It made the steamy scenes that much hotter.
I loved all the romance book references in this book. Romance book lovers will get a kick out of seeing some popular favorites mentioned. I also loved how Knox defended romance book lovers after a journalist made an ignorant condescending remark about romance novels. This was me while reading this part
Overall this was fun and super sexy! Some of the comedy aspect of this book did not necessarily work for me but I would still recommend this book.
