With February deemed the month of love, I decided to read a romance novel that worked within my reading challenge. For my Pick Your Poison Reading Challenge, I chose “The Wedding Date” by Jasmine Guillory for the category “A Book with an Interracial Relationship.”
This was my first time reading an adult romance novel and finishing it. I tend to avoid YA novels that focus heavily on romance, but I have read more of that genre in YA than adult fiction.
The story follows the relationship of Alexa Monroe and Drew Nichols as they begin as strangers on a broken elevator to a couple of high-powered professionals trying to make a long distance relationship work.
Even though this had many predictable points, the characters were interesting enough that I was always delighted when they interacted with each other. They constantly traded jokes with each other, and when they allowed their love for each other to shine through, it was very adorable.
I do enjoy how this story is told from both character’s perspectives as we can see how they both are bad at communicating with each other, as well as their thought process. It does a great job in showing how the problems that occur within the relationship isn’t just one sided.
While I probably won’t read this again, I will definitely look for this author if I’m ever interested in reading another romance novel.
Overall, I give this a 3/5 stars.
