Summary

Alyssa Cole returns with a fun, sexy romance novella in the Reluctant Royals series!

While her boss the prince was busy wooing his betrothed, Likotsi had her own love affair after swiping right on a dating app. But her romance had ended in heartbreak, and now, back in NYC again, she’s determined to rediscover her joy - so, of course, she runs into the woman who broke her heart.

When Likotsi and Fabiola meet again on a stalled subway train months later, Fab asks for just one cup of tea. Likotsi, hoping to know why she was unceremoniously dumped, agrees. Tea and food soon leads to them exploring the city together, and their past, with Fab slowly revealing why she let Likotsi go, and both of them wondering if they can turn this second chance into a happily-ever-after.

Slayed my whole life...

Touched on a lot of important political topics while also not forgetting it was a romance. If you read A Princess in Theory, Likotsi is Prince Thabiso's advisor, a masculine presenting queer woman. You saw hints of what happened but since she was a secondary character, it was unclear why things didn't work out. This book fills that gap.

Using flashbacks flawlessly, the story details meeting Fabiola, a Haitian-American queer woman and how she changed her world. Their cultural differences were so charming😍I don't think I've read a f/f book that featured two Black women with this dynamic and didn't realize how much I needed it! And they were both dark skinned! I don't even think I deserved this to be one of my first official reads of the year.

My only complaint is it's a novella so it's about a quarter size of the other books. For a cover this banging, it deserved a full length. I bought it via audio as soon as I saw it available. Don't say you want to see inclusion in queer romance and not read this book!

I'm not crying, tears of joy!

I loved this story, so short but so impactful. I have truly enjoyed every word of this series.

If zero stars were an option...

If zero stars were an option, I would give a big fat zero! I have listened to all of the book in the A Reluctant Royals series, and enjoyed most of them. This book hower was absolutely terrible. It's like the author expected the listener to know what was in her mind. If you listened to book 1, you may have been briefly introduced to the main character in this book; however this book assumes that you know the backstory of the main character, but there is no back story. I would not recommend this to anyone! I don't often request a refund, but I'll be sure to ask for one for this "booK"

Sweet second chance love story

The only problem I had with this was that it wasnt a full length novel!
