Rules for Dating a Romantic Hero is one of the 2014 Quick Reads titles. Having heard so much about these on social media over recent months, it was only right that when I finally came across them in my local Waterstones, I had to buy myself a couple. And at £1, what a bargain! I think they are a brilliant concept and will entice even the most reluctant readers to pick up a book.
Rules for Dating a Romantic Hero is a short story following Laura and Nick. Nick is from an old aristocratic family, with stately homes and trusts to manage; Laura is your normal girl next book. They make the most unlikeliest couple, yet they have fallen in love. But can Laura fit into Nick’s world? Is Laura the “one” for Nick? And will he ever commit to her and make her his Lady?
Rules for Dating a Romantic Hero is the sequel to A Hopeless Romantic, the full length novel in which we first meet Nick and Laura (This has been quickly added to my wish list). This was a beautifully written book which was certainly not compromised by it’s short length. It was a compelling, page turner from the beginning. Each chapter begins with a tip in relation to dating; I found these hilarious and insightful to what lay ahead, they really added some light heartedness to this novella.
Rules for Dating a Romantic Hero is well paced and has a well developed plot, which is full of unexpected twists and turns. This certainly was a quick read, but it was one which I did not want to put down and was certainly sad to see end. I did love the ending however, it made me really fall for Nick and Laura. They are a fabulous couple and even though they appear to have nothing in common, they are the perfect couple.
If you don’t buy any other book this summer, please pick up this book! Quick Reads are a fabulous concept and really do offer some fabulous reads 🙂
