Short and Sassy Book Blog (Topic: 5 Things I Learned from Romance Novels)
Julie Ann Levin

I did not start reading romance novels young enough to learn about sex from them, but I have learned other things from Romance Novels and here are my top five in no particular order.

  1. Communication is so important. How many lives in our favorite romance novels have almost been ruined by a miscommunication? I know the verdict is out on this one. Some people despise the miscommunication trope, and others think it’s just fine. Either way, the important lesson to take away from these stories is that it’s better to be open and honest than to miss out on years with the love of your life over a silly miscommunication.
  2. Beauty really is in the eye of the beholder. I don’t actually think that all the heroines in romance novels are all so beautiful. They can’t ALL be flawless. But it is possible for the hero to see her that way, even if others do not. One of my favorite lines comes from Jennifer Crusie’s book, Bet Me. The heroine has forced the hero into talking to her about her plump body, and what she should do to get thin, and he says, “Although you’re the kind of woman who looks better naked than dressed.” I absolutely love that line.
  3. Sometimes our quirks are the best part about us. Maybe you fall a lot. Or maybe you always laugh until you cry. Or maybe you’re grumpy in the morning. I like to think that these small, insignificant details, are the things that make us stand out from the crowd. The romance heroes sure seem to dig it!
  4. Everyone has motivation. I love romance novels because the characters have two story arcs happening simultaneously. They have the emotional arc and the physical arc. They’re not just trying to save the farm from foreclosure; they’re also dealing with the recent loss of Grandpa Joe, who loved that farm so darn much. Remember that in real life. Everyone has stuff going on. Everyone has a past, and everyone has a motivation.
  5. Reading can be the best thing ever. Diving in, despising the villain, rooting for the heroine, hoping beyond hope that the guy gets the girl. How great is it that three hundred pages can be so transformative for the reader?

Chance is back home to Divine Island. He has not been back for more than a few days in the last 10 years. Out of all the Hammond kids, he was the outcast who was always the bad boy. Chance is now back because he father is sick, or so he has been told. 

Natalie Rey is the girl who has always been in love with Chance. For as long as she can remember, he has been the one for her. She moved on to someone else. Now, Natalie is newly divorced and Chance is back home. What can go wrong???

Neither of them needs a new relationship. Both are not looking for anything, but there is a CRAZY chemistry that neither of them can deny. What starts off as a fling, leads to love. The couple fights as hard as they can to not fall for each other, but their hearts have always been half way there already. Now, they just need to fall the rest of the way. 

This was a fast read for me. It was an easy read.
