Review: The Plus One by Rebecca Blevins

The Plus One by Rebecca Blevins

Book Description:

After selling the inn she inherited from her grandmother, Rachel DeWitt moves to Kansas City to put her past behind her and realize her dream of going to art school. While at a celebratory dinner out alone, she meets Braden Easton, and due to her quick thinking, she rescues him from a terrible first date.
Rachel has sworn off romance for the foreseeable future—even if Braden’s British accent makes her swoon. So when Braden presents a plan to be each other’s “plus one” as needed, Rachel agrees. Before long, the two are spending a good deal of time together, and Rachel wonders why she hasn’t tried this friendship-dating thing before. But what she doesn’t know is that Braden has a secret that could threaten their arrangement and change both of their lives in ways neither one has ever imagined. 

My Review:

This sweet romance novella might be the best book I've read all year--certainly my favorite contemporary romance! For one thing, I'm a sucker for a book set in a real place with real landmarks that makes me want to visit. I guess I need to make a trip to Kansas City. I'm not one to include a summary of the book, but things that I liked about it--the twist on the damsel in distress, the cute banter, the British accent, but mostly, the art. I loved Rebecca Blevins' descriptions and the ideas behind them. I loved the characters and rooted for them. A beautiful way to spend an afternoon! I can't wait to read the next in this series.
