Sarah Adams is a queen of clean romances! I think this book is my favorite way of introducing a couple together. No one is going to show up at your house out of nowhere, oh wait....! Love it, absolutely love it. Noah is the best grumpy teddy bear. I love his gruff exterior that hides a heart of gold. He's been hurt in the past so he has closed himself off to the possibility of love. All you want to do is just hold him and show him that love can still happen. And Amelia, she is an inspiration to so many. Follow your dreams but learn to rely on yourself. Be careful who you trust as it is so easy to trust the wrong person. I love that she learned to trust her instincts and to forge her own path. This book is very well written and is easy to follow along. Perfect for an afternoon laying by the pool or on the beach! Thank you so much to the author and Netgalley for a copy of this eARC!
Opposites certainly attract for the stranded pop star and small-town baker in this charming slice of romance from the author of the TikTok sensation The Cheat Sheet.
Amelia Rose, known as Rae Rose to her adoring fans, is burned-out from years of maintaining her “princess of pop” image. Inspired by her favorite Audrey Hepburn film, Roman Holiday, she drives off in the middle of the night for a break in Rome . . . Rome, Kentucky, that is.
When Noah Walker finds Amelia on his front lawn in her broken-down car, he makes it clear he doesn’t have the time or patience for celebrity problems. He’s too busy running the pie shop his grandmother left him and reminding his nosy but lovable neighbors to mind their own damn business. Despite his better judgment, he lets her stay in his guest room–but only until her car is fixed–then she’s on her own.
Then Noah starts to see a different side of Rae Rose–she’s Amelia: kindhearted and goofy, yet lonely from years in the public eye. He can’t help but get close to her. Soon she’ll have to return to her glamorous life on tour, but until then, Noah will show Amelia all the charming small-town experiences she’s been missing, and she’ll help him open his heart to more.
Amelia can’t resist falling for the cozy town and her grumpy tour guide, but even Audrey had to leave Rome eventually.
