Tugged At My Heartstrings Throughout
5 out of 5 stars
When reading the first book in the Ms. Right series – I didn’t at that point know it was a series. When I saw that Lacey had the second book in the series coming out I was jumping for joy. No Rings Attached is a book that I hope makes me smile as much as Read Between The Lines did (which it did).
So, I jumped into this one not even reading much about it because I loved the first book so much and what a book it was. It starts off with a typical trope of the fake date at a wedding – but wow that opening was literally only that. This book was SO much deeper and had so many more layers than just the opening.
No Rings Attached pulled at my heartstrings throughout. I kept wondering to myself “when is this going to change” (trying not to spoil) and I would be like “okay it’s going to happen now” but I was wrong… a lot. But Lacey kept me hanging on to her every word waiting for that second shoe to drop (just like Grace was always doing).
I won’t go into detail about the different things that happen to them, things they find out, etc – but just know that Lacey wrote a ton into No Rings Attached and definitely made this book stand out compared to a lot of the others. Both Grace and Lia were so likable even when they had their flaws that I couldn’t help but smile (or cry) throughout when good and bad things happened to each of them.
And… that ending. Oh wow, so good.
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?No Rings Attached by Rachel Lacey
