For Valentines weekend, here is a book review of a soppy sweet romantic short story. There are a few of these ‘Meet Cute’ series. I decided to pick up this one first, as the idea of it being in a bookshop appealed to me.
Every Happily Ever After began with a Once Upon a Time…
It takes a lot to distract Jade from her books. But from the moment she spots Marwan browsing the shelves, she can’t concentrate on anything else…
A gorgeously romantic short story, part of The Meet Cute series.
This book is a very short story, it is basically girl meets boy, girl fancies boy blah blah. I am disappointed to say that I wasn’t impressed with this book.
I found the main female character Jade a bit annoying. She sounded a bit contradictory to me. She says she has sworn off men as she as been hurt too many times before, but then says:
“I knew he was trustworthy as I looked into those eyes. They were the eyes of an honest man.” – but this was before she had spoken to him?? Really?!
Jade is very into her books though, and I was hoping that based in a bookshop, there would be lots of descriptive words about books, the shop and the guy. I did like Jade’s thoughts about books, and the Author did write her well as a book lover.
“I love old books. I like to imagine who they might have belonged to, if they were read on a train, or a beach, or in front of a roaring log fire..”
I guess this is the kind of short story you might have a quick read of when you have a spare five minutes. I did like the Author’s style of writing, I just found this particular story a bit pointless. I don’t think I will be reading anymore of the ‘Meet Cute series. However, if I found a full length book by the Author, I would give it a go.
I would love to hear your Valentine reads? Have you read this or any of the other ‘Meet Cute’ books? What did you think?
