Look The Part By Jewel E. Ann

Rating: ★ ★ ★ 

Book synopsis:

Flint Hopkins finds the perfect tenant to rent the space above his Minneapolis-based law office.

All the t’s are crossed and i’s dotted on Ellen’s application. Her references are good. And she’s easy on the eyes.

Until …

Flint discovers Ellen Rodgers, Board-Certified Music Therapist, plays music. Bongos, guitars, singing—not Beethoven administered through noise-cancelling headphones.

The cut-throat attorney serves up an eviction notice to the bubbly, constantly humming redhead who’s too sexy for her own good. But luck is on Ellen’s side when Flint’s autistic son, Harrison, takes an instant liking to her. A single dad can’t compete with guitars—and rats. Yes, she has pet rats.

This woman …

She’s annoyingly happy with a constant need to touch him—adjust his tie, button his shirt, invade his space, and mess with his mind.

Still …

She must go.

Their lust-hate relationship escalates into something beautiful and tragic. This sexy, romantic-comedy explores the things we want, the things we need, and the impossible decisions parents and children make to survive.


My Review:

I enjoyed this book It was a quick read. In the beginning, It was kinda enemies to lovers but It changed so fast because of their attraction to each other.

I liked Ellen and Harry’s relationship they are so cute with each other and her relationship with her father is beautiful I liked how they cared so much about each other.

Flint at the beginning is so grumpy but as the story progresses he became such a good character I liked him and what he did with Ellen and her father at the end.

There was some part that is boring in the middle but the story picked up after that a little and I felt their relationship is rushed a little. Overall It was a good read I finished it fast and I enjoyed it.

Book Review: Before We Were Strangers

Before We Were Strangers

by Renee Carlino

Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Book synopsis:

To the Green-eyed Lovebird:

We met fifteen years ago, almost to the day, when I moved my stuff into the NYU dorm room next to yours at Senior House.

You called us fast friends. I like to think it was more.

We lived on nothing but the excitement of finding ourselves through music (you were obsessed with Jeff Buckley), photography (I couldn’t stop taking pictures of you), hanging out in Washington Square Park, and all the weird things we did to make money. I learned more about myself that year than any other.

Yet, somehow, it all fell apart. We lost touch the summer after graduation when I went to South America to work for National Geographic. When I came back, you were gone. A part of me still wonders if I pushed you too hard after the wedding…

I didn’t see you again until a month ago. It was a Wednesday. You were rocking back on your heels, balancing on that thick yellow line that runs along the subway platform, waiting for the F train. I didn’t know it was you until it was too late, and then you were gone. Again. You said my name; I saw it on your lips. I tried to will the train to stop, just so I could say hello.

After seeing you, all of the youthful feelings and memories came flooding back to me, and now I’ve spent the better part of a month wondering what your life is like. I might be totally out of my mind, but would you like to get a drink with me and catch up on the last decade and a half?


My Review:

Grace and Matt’s story spans 15+ years. We go from the past when Matt and Grace meet in college and how they fell in love with each other and when graduation comes things got difficult for Matt, and he has to leave and Grace had an opportunity to travel for a year. Things got complicated from there and the fast forward 15 years later when Matt saw Grace again for the first time in 15 years.

This is my second time reading this book and I loved it even more.Grace and Matt had such a beautiful relationship. This book broke my heart in the best way possible,I can’t even put into words how much this story and these characters means to me.

I love Matt and Grace as characters, they are both so talented and funny. This story was so evocative and heartbreaking, If you like second chance romance you’ll love this book. It’s one of those books that grabs you from start and you don’t want it to end.


Favorite Quotes:

“Everything seems better in a memory.”

You were always with me, Grace. I never”

“Time passes, life goes on, places change”

Happy reading ♥️.
