    Thank you to Netgalley and Kensington Publishing for proving me with this ARCI didn't realize this was the second book in a series I found the story heartwarming and sweet I really enjoyed the banter from the beginning and found that Beckett and Levi had a lot of chemistry; I especially enjoyed how they worked well to be honest and to hold each other accountable However I really wish I had read Book 1 first I think it would've given me better insight into the characters and their history This book gave us just enough of a recap but I still wish I read Book 1Nonetheless I enjoyed seeing Beckett handle her family dynamic I found her feelings very relatable as someone who also has a family that reuires extra care Her insistent that everything is fine having to drop everything to make pick up another family issue You really sympathized with her greatly Levi was also great His thought process was nice to read I loved his relationship with his family members and how the author realistically portrayed him dealing with his grief I have a little issue with the pace of the story though Most of the beginning of the book felt really slow and dragged not much going on besides highlighting the many family obligations that both Beckett and Levi have to deal with and how they are both so very overwhelmed with it all The second half picks up but everything starts going too fast I think a neater finish was needed to entice us to read the next book Overall it was a good read It had humor and romance I appreciated how the author brought awareness to autism spectrum disorder

    375 starsThank you to Kensington Books and NetGalley for a gifted copy of this ARC All opinions are my own I absolutely adored Romeantically Challenged so when I received a copy of this ARC I dropped everything to return to Rome RI This was a slooowwww burn The first half of the book felt really slow with not much going on besides highlighting the family obligations both Beckett and Levi have and how they are both completely overwhelmed Then things moved really uickly and I thought the book ended with a lot of loose ends I literally got to 99% of the book and I was worried my ARC was messed up because there were still so many open uestions Perhaps this is just me but I wanted to see how Annie and Emmitt's wedding went if Levi went on his trip who Paisley's crush was etc I am hoping we will find out in book 3??? Overall I still enjoyed it One of the highlights of the book is the chicken Beckett was training She reminded me of Penelope from The Wallflower Wager by Tessa Dare I also liked that Adair brought awareness to autism spectrum disorder

    I loved traveling back to Rome Rhode Island Following this trip of dads is such a highlightIn this installment we follow the Uncle Dad Levi and watch him slowly realize his life partner had been in the same town all alongWe come to really fall for Beckett and how chaotic her life is Watching her find a balance for her self and her family was at times really difficult Adair really helps the reader understand how taxing and yet wonderful living with special needs family members can beMy only criticism is that this was so slow for a uite a while whilst the plot built and then it rushed downhill I feel like I missed out on uite a bit I still have many uestionsI hope we soon get Grays story and can have a bit of closure for this oneThank you Kensington and Netgalley for the advanced copy in exchange for an honest review

    I just love Rome Rhode Island and this group of dads finding their way through parenting life and love Levi and Beckett's story of letting others in and letting them help and recognizing life for what it was is so relatable and real Their slow burn was worth the wait but the end felt so hurried that I think I still have uestion I can't wait for Grey's book to get a little of each character and to finally find his love

    I really enjoyed this book It was charming and well written It is part of a series and I feel like I would have connected with the characters If I had read the others I also had some issues with pacing Overall I give it 35 stars Thank you to netgalley for the arc

    Hopeless Romantic When In Rome #2Marina AdairContemporary Small Town Romance45 starsI received a copy of this ebook ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review I was so elated to receive an ARC as I have read many Marina Adair books including the first in this series RomeAntically Challenged – if you haven’t read it yet put it on your TBR list🌷 I really love Marina Adair’s books and have come to count on them as a go to for feel good heartwarming romantic comedies Hopeless Romantic did not disappoint it was sweet and full of heart; it was also a uick read and exactly the feels I've been looking for these days 😊 For those that enjoy a slow burn romance – this book has you covered Once again the series returned to the small town of Rome RI This book focused on the stories of MCs Levi and Beckett both of whom made appearances in book 1 I really loved both of the leads and felt they were fleshed out so well in this story and both managed to feel very relatable I loved how independent Beckett was that she was fiercely loyal and the fact that she was trying to keep it all together Levi was of course a family guy a charmer and a sweetheart – definite contender for book boyfriend💖 This was a feel good slow burn romance and even offered a little steam for those who like that😉 The love story progress felt realistic and satisfying and I just loved these two together they just complimented each other so well I was very happy they were able to find one another and that they were set on a path to have love happiness and balance Another point in their favor the obstacles they had to navigate and overcome felt realistic and relatable in that they are ones many of us have to work through in relationships This and the fact that the last hurdle did not feel contrived extra appreciation from me No spoilers but I could understand and appreciate where each character was coming from and the reactions felt authenticOne thing I enjoyed about this book was the reflection on different family dynamics and how not every family is the ‘perfect’ made for tv one Once again Adair showed an ability to look at families and know not all families are made up the same or have the same roles – but that they still are important to represent It was great to see how the characters learned about boundaries setting them respecting them and how important they areFinally last but not least I really appreciated the fact that both of these leads were in their early thirties and still figuring things out a bit Yes they had jobs social lives etc – but they didn’t have it all together which is always nice to see I can’t wait to return to Rome again – so I really hope there is a third book coming Maybe for Grey?😊

    A solid romance with a zany heroine a too hot to handle hero and a strong supporting castRating 355Hopeless Romantic is the second book in the When in Rome series and does what every good stand alone series installment should do it draws you in While there are illusions to the first book throughout Levi and Beck's story is extremely engaging and does an excellent job at being its own work From watching Beck bring Gregory in to the bar to cringing your way through some of Levi's hairbrained moments Adair's characters are unapologetically sincere and a delight to readHowever there were certain plot points in the story that could have been thought out I wish we could have seen of Levi engaging with Thomas before 'Tommy' becomes the norm that whole relationship felt a little rushed and I really really had hoped to see of Paisley throughout As such a big part of Levi's life the teenager felt like the least baked character in the whole book and she truly deserved better I'm all here for the three dads plot line though and really enjoyed watching Gray Emmit and Levi navigate the whims waning and wiles of a their teenage star Maybe Paisley deserves her own book? I'd so buy thatAlso the pacing of the book fell flat at times Lots of slow burn leading up to the big boom but very little resolution on the other side Jeffrey and Beck wouldn't have resolved their issues as fast as they seem to at the end of the book and Thomas' last big adventure was a little jarring Overall I am definitely satisfied with Hopeless Romantic for all that it is A solid plot engaging characters and some seriously tender moments all make the book a fantastic read I received a copy of this book from Netgalley and Kennsington All of the opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own

    Thank you Net Galley and the publisher for the ARC of Hopeless RomeAntic by Marina Adair Since I hadn't read the first book in the series RomeAntically Challenged I decided to start with that book Honestly I didn't love that one and wasn't looking forward to reading this one but I was pleasantly surprised and liked this one much better I think it helps that I was familiar with the characters and the relationship between Emmitt Levi Grey and Paisley as well as Annie and Beckett so not as much background was needed in this book as the first one I loved Levi and Beckett as a couple Their banter was amazing and had me laughing out loud He had such patience and was sympathetic to Beckett's needs and obligations but he also recognized her need to take time for herself The interesting thing was it also helped him realize that he also needed to take the same time for himself it reminds us all that while we are all so busy taking care of our families its important that we are taking care of ourselves as well This book also did a wonderful job showing how families of people with autism live their everyday lives It shows how people struggle starting their own business and also running their own business It brings to light the worklife balance and also the guilt parents often put on their children even if they aren't meaning to The book just felt like real life at times I mean the emotional support chicken was HILARIOUS but definitely not real life There were a few loose ends I would have like to have tied up but they didn't take away from the story overall Hoping there is a third book in the series so that Grey can have another chance at love#MarinaAdair #RomeRhodeIsland #Autism #Family #Obligations #Love #Friends #WorkLifeBalance #AdultFiction #BeachRead
