Book/Novel Title: No Rings Attached
From award-winning author Rachel Lacey comes the second installment in the Ms. Right series: a captivating romance about a reluctant bookseller finding love in unexpected places.Lia Harris is tired of being the odd one out. She’s never quite fit in with her uptight family, and now that her roommates have all found love, she’s starting to feel like a third wheel in her own apartment. Fed up with her mother’s constant meddling in her love life, Lia drops hints about a girlfriend she doesn’t have. But with her brother’s London nuptials approaching, she needs to find a date to save face. Lia turns to her best friend, Rosie, for help, and Rosie delivers—with the fun, gorgeous Grace Poston.Grace loves to have a good time, hiding her insecurities behind a sunny smile. Her recent move to London has provided her with a much-needed fresh start. Grace isn’t looking for love, and she hates weddings, having weathered more than her fair share of heartache. Friendships are different, though, so for Rosie’s sake, she reluctantly agrees to pose as Lia’s adoring girlfriend for the wedding festivities.Both Grace and Lia are prepared for an awkward weekend, complete with prying family members and a guest room with only one bed. As it turns out, they get along well—spectacularly, in fact. Before they know it, the chemistry they’re faking feels all too real. But is their wedding weekend a fleeting performance or the rehearsal for a love that’s meant to last?
Promoting the redefinition of marriage and pretending alternative sexual lifestyles are the same as organic ones is misleading and immoral.
When I read the previous book in this series, it reminded me early on of a twist on the movie You’ve Got Mail, so I went into this story hoping that something similar would happen and I wasn’t disappointed at all! I loved that this story started out like a twist on The Wedding Date, but like the previous story, it only used it as a jumping off point.I found myself really identifying with Grace in almost every way. Although she was written as a lesbian with commitment issues, I think that the author was shining a bit of a spotlight on an oft overlooked part of the LGBTQIA+ spectrum: the Aromantic/Asexual identities. Without coming right out and saying so, the author made Grace into a Demiromantic character, which was personally very validating for me! Lia got a bit annoying with how she kept trying to “fix” Grace, but it was clear that Lia had no idea about the outlying parts of the queer spectrum, much like those of us that identify with these more “fringe” concepts have to deal with in our interactions with others within the community. It was very much a way for me to identify with Grace, even as she did a lot of self-sabotage in her dealings with Lia. To me, Grace was like looking in a mirror.The story was very engrossing, and tugged at my heartstrings on more than one occasion! I can’t recommend this book enough!
This was a very good Love story, I enjoyed all the main characters. Grace and Lia being the main ones.It started with Lua needing a girlfriend for a family members wedding and a friend of a friend fills in and what happen’s next. I recommend this book
this story is about friendship, loyalty and love, is such and sweet. is about trust and overcoming your fears of past betrayals, and give yourself a chance to live , love and trust again. Is a story i definitely recommend, I also enjoyed the audiobook.
Love this book! I have not read the first in the series. I won this from Goodreads and so glad I did! I plan to backtrack and read the first one. Love the characters so much. Some of the romance is a little cheesy, but who doesn’t love that when it’s needed for a nice light read?! Storyline is wonderful for contemporary without being in your face. Absolutely adore this book! Can’t wait to read more from Rachel Lacey!
