With a prince - Jeffe Kennedy

The guy on the train is just Marcia’s type. A face like an angel, a scent like raw honey, treats her like he has a white horse and suit of armor stowed in his messenger bag. Perfect.

Too perfect. No guy like that would be interested in prim, awkward Marcia, notorious goody-goody and a twentysomething still clutching her v-card. She’s been following rules her whole life—but somewhere, the game changed. And left her behind. 

So when she meets Damien, with his rumbling motorbike, gleaming piercings, and wicked imagination, she doesn’t care that he’s the exact opposite of “her type.” Her type would never dare her into such shocking, fiendishly inventive adventures—and she can’t wait to say yes.

Yes to whiskey in the middle of a workday. Yes to letting her hands roam over his body from the back of his bike. Yes to a fling full of wild abandon and absolutely no long-term potential. Except Damien’s not just the straightforward bad boy she imagined. And as they burn through Chicago’s nights, Marcia can’t shake the fear that this happiness is just another fairy tale… 

My thoughts.
My first book finished since becoming a mum. I am so glad I went for a novella! Well I did finish that audiobook but that was easier.

Enough of that. Too the book then. It was a sexy novella that even made me want to cry. Omg, NO it was NOT sad. But there was this disappointment and I went all mommy sad *eye roll* I so can not get these hormones under control. I just wanted to rage...and I can not say more cos spoilers. But arghh, rage!

Marcia is the good girl, the virgin, the one who is waiting for her prince charming. But then she meets someone who is SO wrong. And for once she just want to live. I get that. She wants to experience life and forget her rules. And he sure was sexy and so wrong that a taste would be so right.

So well duh there is passion, there is some drama. There is friendship (I so want friends like that! Well at times...*silence*) And there are 3 more women who will find love too. You do not need to have read the first to enjoy this one, BUT there was something that happened in book 1 so the tension is there and yes maybe just read in order then.

I like a novella that manages to make it believable that people can fall for each other in a short amount of time. It never felt too short.

I like that you're easing into reading/blogging slowly. That's the only way to do it, I think. Especially with a wee one. :D

Hope you and baby are doing well!

You will get those hormones reigned in soon. Glad this was a beliveable novella.

Mary Kirkland said...

Those hormones and mood swings will be gone soon. Took me 6 months but I'm weird. lol Gotta love novellas when you don't have a lot of time.

Jasprit said...

Oh I actually really like the sound of this book, I hadn't realised that it was part of a series, so I shall definitely be checking the rest of the series out!

Congrats on the little one! Short books are perfect when you want to read and don't have tons of time.

Greg said...

Nice that it sold the quick romance in a realistic way. Sounds like the good outweighed the bad?

LilyElement said...

Sounds good, always glad when a novella works so well :D

I do love Jeffe Kennedy, but I haven't read many of her contemporary romances. I love her fantasies.

Huh... I love Jeffe's work, but the description of this book didn't sound appealing. Yet your review makes me rethink my stance! Thanks!

Sophia Rose said...

Yes, I like a novella to have a strongly developed plot, too. Glad you got one even if the hormones raged. :)

Melliane said...

I really need one day to read a book by this author!
