Love Unexpected: A Storybook Romance by Melanie Jacobson, Jennifer K. Clark, Julie Daines
My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
Source: Received to Review
Genre: Clean Contemporary Romance
Book Description: They say a rose by any other name would smell as sweet, but as mistaken identities abound, three heroines will put this age-old adage to the test! is a heartwarming collection of short stories that begs the question: can true love really conquer all?
My thoughts: All three novellas in this book were well written and fun to read.
The first story, Storybook Romance, was probably my favorite out of the three. I love the main character, Ellie. She was in a difficult situation. Her boss had recently passed away and his replacement was a woman who she didn't get along with. I loved how she handled her work situation, particularly an incident at the end, that you have to read to appreciate!
The correspondence between Ellie and Max was fun, I looked forward to reading their flirting and banter. I would have loved to see this story as a full length novel. If I were to rate each story individually this one would be a 5 star.
The second story, He Loves Me Not, was my least favorite of the three. That doesn't mean much because it was a great story. I just felt bad for the main character, Kenedee. She jumps to many conclusions that lead to awkwardness. Andrew was my favorite character in this story. He is a fun loving person who really puts up with a lot. This story would be rated at a 4.
The third story, Fools of Us All, would best be described as nice twin vs. mean twin. While the story centers around Jane, her twin sister Jennica has a prominent place in the story. Jane compares herself to her sister and the story begins with mistaken identity.
One thing that I really liked about this book is the emphasis it places on being nice and being a good person. Jane is an exceptional woman. She put her life on hold to take care of her mother. I didn't like Jennica. She uses people to attain her goals. The romance has a couple of situations that dealt with mistaken identity. I'm just glad that everything turned out well in the end.
I would give this story 4.5 stars.
P.S. I loaned this book to a friend and she couldn't put it down either!
