Review: Don't Date Rosa Santos

[fa icon="calendar'] Jun 19, 2019 9:45:00 AM / by Suzanne Krohn posted in review

[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

Although the book deals heavily with grief and strained family relationships, Don't Date Rosa Santos is a feel-good summer romance that made me smile. Reminiscent of Jane the Virgin, Rosa's Cuban-American family consists of her, her mother, and her grandmother. (More on this later.) They live in a multicultural small town in coastal Florida that feels a bit like Gilmore Girls' Stars Hollow... but not so white.

Just like last year, we're celebrating Pride and summer by giving queer recommendations for The Ripped Bodice's Summer Romance Bingo!

A few notes:

Some of the categories we stretched a wee bit.

We've tried to leave off the books we recommended last year.

Some of these we haven't read and are planning to read them for our own bingo cards, but we've tried to eliminate those with problematic rep and/or give content warnings below.

Review: Meet Cute, by Helena Hunting

Meet Cute is one of those books with a cute cartoon cover that disguises some serious subject matter within. I'm starting to get used to these, but it still throws me if I don't carefully read the blurb. In the prologue, we meet Daxton and Kailyn, both attending law school together. The title refers to their first and second meetings, in which Kailyn walks right through Daxton's frisbee game and then spills coffee all over herself when trying to get into the seat next to him in class, the only seat available. Oh, and Daxton just happens to be the star of Kailyn's favorite teen drama of all time, so she fangirls and then is horribly embarassed. (He's essentially Dawson from Dawson's Creek.)

June books! June is a little lighter, which means we're hoping to catch up on May's very long list. But lighter doesn't mean we don't have another list of books to stack on that metaphorical TBR pile! We do.

Review: A Rogue by Night, by Kelly Bowen

[fa icon="calendar'] May 28, 2019 9:40:00 AM / by Suzanne Krohn posted in review

[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

The third book in Kelly Bowen's Devils of Dover series pairs two doctors who both happen to be smugglers as well. Katherine is the daughter of a smuggler and was brought up in the family business. She studied under a midwife and then went to war, and has since been patching up the locals. Harland is a Baron and also a doctor, something his late wife hated him for. Since they both have a disastrous past relationship and are trying to keep secrets (very poorly), their relationship progresses in fits and starts.

The Books We Loved in Spite of the Tropes We Don't

Almost nothing seems to bring people together like how troubling a specific trope can be (let’s be honest, it’s the secret baby trope that gets mentioned most often). Seconds later, the conversation will turn to “Oh, but I loved this secret baby book by…” because there is also always an author who manages to defy expectations of a trope.

Here, the Love in Panels team talks about the books and authors who have managed to defy difficult tropes.
