HAPPY RELEASE DAY LADIES!
Harlequin E Contemporary Romance Box Set Volume 3: Falling from the Sky\Maid to Love\When the Lights Go Down\Start Me Up by Sarina Bowen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is a great boxed set–four very strong romances with alpha heroes and spunky heroines, but what sets it apart are some really unique pairings. Rebecca Avery totally turns the baby-of-convenience plotline on its head in a very adorable romp. Amy Jo Cousins has a natural gift for banter and that’s very apparent here–I loved her piece and would LOVE to see it as a movie as I kept laughing out loud and wishing I had a girlfriend to elbow and say “did you see what he just did!” Not to mention how much fun it would be to cast Maxie and Nick . . .
Sarina Bowen’s Falling From the Sky absolutely blew me away. OH. My. Word. I wish I did GIF reviews because here is where I would stick one of a dude peeling his jaw off the ground. This is the sort of book I’ve been wishing someone would write for YEARS. I kept gripping my eReader too tightly, afraid the story wouldn’t live up, but it totally did. It’s a gritty, realistic look at a hero with a spinal cord injury wrapped up in a sweet and sexy package that doesn’t come too easily. There are no miracle cures here. Realistic representation of disability in romance is passion of mine and Bowen absolutely hits it out the park here. This novella is easily in my top five books of 2014. All four books in this set are easily worth the price on their own–together they are a terrific value and bargain.
