Thanks to the publisher & Netgalley for the complimentary e-ARC. All opinions provided are my own.
Jackie Lau’s Not Your Valentine delivered on the best of Valentine’s Day with so much of the good stuff: a grumpy heroine, a nice guy hero; some forearms lusting; a friends to lovers arc; steam that had me thinking in blush emojis.
I ate this novella up!
It’s fun & easy to jump into, even on a night when I didn’t feel like I could concentrate that well.
There’s so much work an author has to do to make a convincing romance novella but Lau made it possible for me to how leads Helen & Taylor might change their relationship so quickly because of how she writes the care they have for one another as friends.
There are some unexpected details thrown in too that I loved & might be new to me in a romance, including some labia insecurity and a 5’5” hero.
Check this one out—it’s really great.
5⭐️. Out now!
CWs: references to racism; reference to parental abandonment.
Give me that HEA, please.
