Roman Holiday 1

Roman Holiday 1: Chained: A Loveswept Contemporary Romance by Ruthie Knox

Hey fans!!! Do you pay attention to my reviews?! Maybe you should ...!!! I'm giving away a copy of this book! Comment on this blog post and let me know what's your favorite book of 2013? What book had you begging for more?! 

I'll announce a winner on my blog page tomorrow afternoon! 

Meet Ashley and Roman—complete opposites who can’t hide their attraction—in Episode 1 of Ruthie Knox’s eBook original serial,Roman Holiday.

Ashley Bowman is having a bad week. Reeling from the death of her beloved grandmother, she returns to the Florida Keys only to learn that a heartless Miami developer has gotten hold of the crappy vacation rentals she calls home. Ashley has one day to clear out before Roman Díaz destroys the only place in the world that matters to her. Chaining herself to a palm tree in the bulldozers’ path seems like a good way to stop him . . . until she realizes she should’ve brought food and water. And pants. Also, it would help if the evil developer weren’t so ridiculously hot.

The last thing Roman Díaz needs is some sun-kissed blond protester getting her picture in the newspaper and messing up his plans. He bought the property fair and square, and the resort he wants to build on the site is the key to realizing his highest ambitions. But when a hurricane blows through, Roman has to hustle Ashley to safety if he wants to protect his reputation—and that means giving in to her unreasonable demands.

Roman needs to learn a little compassion, and Ashley’s decided to teach it to him . . . even if she has to drag him all over the Eastern Seaboard to do it.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a cute, quick little story that left me wanting to know what's happening next! I'm not huge on the way it left off, but am still really interested! The plot and premise are good and fresh. There's no love at first sight. It's just a sweet short little story that will have you begging for more!
