His Favorite Regret. A Romantic Comedy (His Favorite Series #1).Sydney Strand

Review from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews.

I’m a romance lover, but I need a bit extra, something to make it different, and jealousy is a real hook for me, I just love the drama that goes with it. This looked like there was lots of scope for that, with the manger who isn’t approving of Cadie for his film star, and Bo’s two sisters who hate her. Sadly that didn’t work as well as I’d hoped, there were moments, but they were few and far and much watered down to what I’d expected 😦

Its an easy to read book though, flows well and people with great characters. Some terrific humour too – and I do love that in a book! Poor Cadie, it seemed like everything went wrong at once for her, and her sister and mother weren’t the supportive kind. Then to add to her week, Bo her lost love is in town. Bo, that man was so, so patient. I did expect though for such a big film star he’d have more security, more problems, and not just be able to wander around unnoticed as he did.

I really wanted a bit more explanation of how they parted, even at the end I was still puzzled by exactly where it went wrong, and about the mysterious Charlie who died. Who was he? What was his connection? If its there in the book I missed it, and being curious I was looking for it, as several reverences had been made to him.

Overall a happy, easy to read romance, but not enough drama for me to want to read again. The sisters and the manager I think could have made a real difference to me about how I enjoyed the book, given it a real edge but…I’m not an author and its probably best that way 🙂

So, if you’re looking for a well written, humorous, and easy to read romance this hits the spot. If like me you want a bit more drama, then maybe not..It’s priced at £2.06 for 163 pages, and maybe if it was a bit longer that extra I need could have been added…

Stars: four. Without that fabulous humour it’d just be a three star ok romance but the snark and wit make it up to a four.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
