The Italian's Runaway Princess - ARC Review

Is life outside the palace walls…

…everything she dreamed of?

When billionaire Gio Grassi rescued a beautiful stranger on the streets of Florence, he never imagined she’d be royalty! Princess Luciana’s innocence compels Gio to protect her, and her vivacity intrigues him. But Gio’s been betrayed before and he can’t let it happen again. With Luciana’s arranged royal wedding only weeks away, can this chance encounter change the course of these two lives—forever?

On Sale today! 


Luci has been trapped her whole life in the role of a princess, meaning, she gets no say over her life. Finally the last straw is when her father is going to marry her off to an older king that she doesn't love. So she runs away for three weeks in order to have her grand adventure... only a handsome man named Gio messes everything up, in the best possible way.

The writing flowed smoothly, the character development was fine, on par with any romance novel out there. It's just... I'm a dialogue person, and most of this wasn't dialogue, it was inside the character's mind and all that is great, again, it was done wonderfully, it's just not my cup of tea. More talking if these people are going to fall in love would make more sense in my mind. 

That being said, it was cute, sweet, and very short. You could plow through this baby in a day and be left feeling all warm and fuzzy inside. I loved watching Luci grow in such a short amount of time, it's rather amazing, her finally sticking up for herself and not allowing herself to be a pawn. Gio opening up again was also something I enjoyed reading. It even has some humor in it which I adored because I can always use more humor in my life right now.

Overall, it was a heartwarming read and I did enjoy it, just wanted more talky-talky between our leads.

(Pride) Book Review - Sagittarius Saves Libra

True love is on the horizon, Sagittarius. It’s a good time to step out of your routine and into the unknown. Jason Lyall wants someone to come home to, someone he can be his most ridiculous self with. Someone who loves him regardless. But no matter how hard he tries, he can never quite make that connection, and now his last girlfriend has moved on—she’s engaged. So when his identical twin begs him to swap lives for a few weeks, Jason can see the appeal. Suddenly he’s living another life in a tiny Australian town, contending with weird, wild, and wonderful things the likes of which he’s never encountered before. Like spiders. Like snakes. Like his new neighbour, Sergeant Owen Stirling, who is all kinds of . . . suspicious. Prepare to be caught in a merry mix-up, Libra. It’s a dance of side-stepping and seduction. Book Breakdown I did not know this was coming! When I woke up on June 1st and saw an email from Amazon saying the author dropped a new book in this series... I lost it! I hones

Music Monday - Recent Plays

This fun meme is hosted over at Always Me   I listened to a lot of music over this past week because I've been on fall break. It's been pretty good minus all the tornadoes and bad weather, but today the high was only around 70! That's amazing for this part of Oklahoma.  The music I've been vibing to is darker sounding songs since it's so close to Halloween! This year my partner and I are gonna crave pumpkins that always and then I'm gonna go with a friend on a train ride. She said she's done it before and it's fun. I'm hoping she'd right!  But for now, to the songs! Sooooooo what did you think? Let me know below and have a great week! Stay safe, wear a mask, and happy reading!
