A Black Tie Affair & Breakfast in Bed

I’ve been a bit behind with my posts lately but as my mom always says; “school come first!” My schedule is crazy busy right now and sleep is on the top of my list. However, I have finished two books; ‘A Black Tie Affair’ by Sherrill Bodine and ‘Breakfast in Bed’ by Robin Kaye.

‘A Black Tie Affair’ was good with a little mystery, forbidden love, and fashion. This romance, set in Chicago, is about the determined Athena Smith and Drew, the one who got away. A robbery of vintage dresses Athena is examining occurs right after she is drugged with a truth serum that the same dresses are covered in. The mystery of the dresses brings Drew and Athena together to deal with not only the problem at hand but with questions from the past. This was a very cute story, simple but it still gives you the warm fuzzies!

“Breakfast in Bed’ was so good! I loved this story; this is something that I would want to happen to me! Ugh, why can’t I have my own real life romance novel? Is that too much to ask? Anywho, the lovely and talented Becca Larsen moves from Philadelphia to New York in the hope of getting away from the family name. To her dismay, the move takes her right into the apartment of Rich Ronaldi, her best friend’s brother. The mix up of their living situation causes the two to become roommates and eventually Becca’s job as ‘Domestic God’ coach to Rich so he can get his girlfriend back. However, this new ‘Domestic God’ may be too good for Becca to let go of…I read this book in one day and for me, lately, that’s surprising! But I just couldn’t put it down! A must read!
