First of all, off topic, I just need to say that I have naturally curly hair and no matter how hard I work on it, it NEVER looks as good as this cover model’s hair. Men shouldn’t be allowed to have hair that pretty! It’s not fair! Men already have a superior ability to open pickle jars, not to mention the whole peeing standing up thing. So I think men should leave beautiful, flowing curly hair to women. It seems only fair, you know? But I digress…
Now, I’ll be right up front about this next thing: This book includes what some of you might call instalove. Personally, I think it’s more of an instalust situation, which I don’t have a problem with. But Chase does have some “love at first sight” thoughts when he’s first talking to Aimee. It didn’t bother me, because they didn’t immediately jump from “hi, nice to meet you” to “let’s settle down and have babies together.” They did actually spend some time getting to know each other before things got super serious. But if you’re a hater of anything remotely instalove-y, well, this one might not be your cuppa.
As was the case with Come Back to Bed, Tonight You’re Mine is full of fun, witty banter. And y’all know how much I adore fun, witty banter. And Chase and Aimee are great leading characters. They’re smart, good at their jobs (yay, competence porn!) and are never TSTL jerks at any point.
My only complaint (and it's a minor one) is that I wanted Chase and Aimee to be straight with Chase’s business partner from the start. It irked me a smidge that Chase seemed to coddle his buddy, and honestly, it was unnecessary. But while something like that might’ve really chapped my ass in another book with another author, it didn’t keep me from enjoying the story. I credit Kayley Loring’s fun writing style for that. A talented author can make just about anything work, I’ve found.
So, long-story-short, this was a fun rom com/ contemporary romance that had a great balance of hilarity and angsty, push-and-pull between the main characters. It’s definitely worth a read.
Does this book contribute to or help crush the romance stigma?
No rehab needed. This one is stigma-free.
