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.

Loooooved it

what else it there to say. one: I'm a sucker for a good black romance. two: i really enjoyed how the writer didn't overplay the same sex aspect. (being a woman who loves women, its important that this didn't come off as porn for men but moreso as a real relationship) and finally: the writer used real life scenery that i recognized

Loved it!

Another lovely dive into a secondary character from the Reluctant Royals series. Both characters are interesting, complex, stubborn yet willing to be vulnerable. A lovely vignette of two women in love finding their way back to each other while doing weird NYC things in the winter.

It Was Great Story...But

The story was very compelling and I truly enjoyed the writing and the pace. The narrator was wonderful and was able to bring the characters to life. I felt like I was in the story while it was being told. I could see what the characters saw, feel what they felt, and smelled the air of the atmosphere they occupied. The only thing that would have made this book better to me, is if the story was longer. it kept me wanting more.

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"
