Romeo Romeo

Guest Author - Elizabeth Darrach

Hello, and welcome back! If you're in the U.S, this is Thanksgiving week for you, so happy Thanksgiving! Eat your meal of choice; ours will be turkey with all the trimmings, along with a lovely cranberry cheesecake for dessert. And I'll be trying hard not to think about the insanity at work this weekend when the holiday shopping season officially begins. Instead, I'll be thinking about how thankful I am for the great books I've read so far this year, and hoping for a few more in these last few weeks of the year, as well as a few hours to actually read them.

This time out, I have Robin Kaye's Romeo Romeo (Sourcebooks). Rosalie Ronaldi has no intention of ever getting married. Her mother can't stop her matchmaking and griping, despite Rosalie's happily uncommitted boyfriend. Then Rosalie meets Nick-the-Tow-truck-guy. Nick is hot, helpful, and not who he's pretending to be. Dominick Romeo is one of the most eligible bachelors in Brooklyn, and when Rosalie isn't interested in him for his money or connections, it's a refreshing change. But Nick can't help wanting to take care of her when she needs it, and even when she doesn't. Of course, after a while, he can't quite find the right time to tell her the truth about himself, and, to make things worse, he's got a history with her older brother, from their wild and misspent youth (and which is never fully explained in the reading of the story). Naturally, Rosalie is a bit brighter than he's given her credit for. So the only real trouble in their way is his plan for a car dealership that has turned to Rosalie's company for help, right? This is something that could actually be a problem. But we all know we're reading romance, right? This story is cute, though I have to say neither Nick nor Rosalie ever really grabbed me through this one. And maybe it's just me, but do people really have families that interfere this much in their lives? And if so, why do they put up with it? Nick is sweet, but it seems to take him a very long time to figure out his feelings. And Rosalie, well, after all he does for her, a little trust doesn't seem that much to ask. This one's earned three of Cupid's five arrows.

Until next time, happy reading!
