Room Service

September 15, 2008 at 5:38 pm (book review, books, fun) (, , )

Room Service by Amy  Garvey is exactly  what I want in a contemporary romance novel.  it is very funny, sexy, the situation is a definite  fantasy, but the characters feel very real.

Olivia Challender is a dreamy  woman  living in the past at her family’s hotel in NYC.  While things felt ok  to her, she needs to wake up and save her hotel.  Enter Rhys Spencer, a renowned British chef.  His entrance into  Olivia’s life is just the catalyst she  needs.  And the number one  reason I love the book,  Rhys is not hero. He doesn’t save Olivia — he just helps her become the best she can be.

I’ve owned the book for awhile ,and part of me is sorry I waited for so long to read Room Service.   But I read it when I need some fun, and I am looking forward to reading more of her books.

    Books to review — that part is easy. Mostly I review books that I have a strong positive emotional response to. and a few books that just puzzle me. or books that I think people might like, but books that are harder to find. You won’t see a review for Twilight here. Partly because the whole world is reading it, partly because while I get the appeal,I didn’t love it.

    Books to read — well it is what I do. I read across genres and across ages. I average about 8 books a month. There are 200 books sitting by my side of the bed waiting to be read, I have a wish list at amazon, friends that are authors, friends that share my taste, I bring home 2-6 books a week from my library, visit books stores about once a week , get suggestions from unshelved, and run two book clubs for 4th through 6th graders.

    Not only is it what you do, its what you’ve always done. I can’t remember a time when you didn’t have a book to read…
