    Check out the review on my blog 4 5 This was one of those books that was super cute and funny, but there were definitely some deeper issues masked underneath the fluff.It follows our main character Anh Nhi but call her Annie , who moves to Rome Rhode Island, not Italy , after being dumped by fiancee who found her s o after only a month and is getting married at the venue she planned And it s been like this her whole life, she gets in a relat Check out the review on my blog 4 5 This was one of those books that was super cute and funny, but there were definitely some deeper issues masked underneath the fluff.It follows our main character Anh Nhi but call her Annie , who moves to Rome Rhode Island, not Italy , after being dumped by fiancee who found her s o after only a month and is getting married at the venue she planned And it s been like this her whole life, she gets in a relationship with someone and fixes them, only to be dumped and replaced by their soul mate But it s not her that s problem, right In Rome, she unexpectedly meets her new roommate Emmitt, at first glance a womanizer, but actually a dad to a teenage girl that has two other dads And he has to fight for her attention.The whole story sounded so crazy to me and I was immediately drawn to it It has such a witty and funny, but also self deprecating tinge to it that just makes you want to readof the story The characters are not black and white, actually none of them is describe to be mean, because as the story continues you learnabout their feelings and life story.I loved both of our main characters as they learned to accept their own feelings Annie, that has been disappointed in all of her relationships and Emmitt who has never really had a meaningful relationships, only flings They need to learn to trust each other and they eventually do.The greatest thing about this story is that although it s a romance, the love story is not really brought to us as a main topic and it s not the only thing that is talked about I personally think it s about family and the journey of finding your true self.Since Annie was born in Vietnam and was adopted by white parents, she felt like an imposter her whole life and she never felt like she belonged in either of those cultures But as the story progresses she slowly starts understanding and learningabout her roots My favorite thing was the author s note at the end, where she explained how her own daughter was also adopted and also from Vietnam and it gave the whole story such a realistic feel and I found it so beautiful and touching.I agree that family is the most important thing, and that is shown to us throughout the whole book Firstly, Annie s relationship with her parents who love her unconditionally and they all have such a strong bond Next, Emmitt s relationship with his daughter who is also raised by her uncle and her step dad I haven t read a lot of books where the main character is a single father and personally, I loved reading about it Especially when the dad is trying to get to know his daughter better and have a better relationship with her And thirdly, Emmitt s relationship with his own dad and the realization that after so many years he must learn to forgive him.This book was such a good read and honestly, a breath of fresh air The only thing I wish was different is the ending possible spoiler alert I had this idea in my head that Annie and Emmitt would go to her ex s wedding in the end and something brilliant would happen The ending wasn t even similar to that, though, and I know we all think differently and obviously I m not the author but I really wanted it to end like that lol Nonetheless, it was still really good

    This is one of those titles where the blurb doesn t fit the story within Yes you do have a newly single physician s assistant involved but that s about as close as it gets Is it still a good story, yes Just not on what you may initially think I felt like I was reading two different stories The first 35% we are solely with Annie whom suffers from a female version of good luck chuck who has just been dumped by the love of her life a short time before the wedding Via text no less It beco This is one of those titles where the blurb doesn t fit the story within Yes you do have a newly single physician s assistant involved but that s about as close as it gets Is it still a good story, yes Just not on what you may initially think I felt like I was reading two different stories The first 35% we are solely with Annie whom suffers from a female version of good luck chuck who has just been dumped by the love of her life a short time before the wedding Via text no less It becomes a series of lets see just how horrible of a person we can make the ex out to be The way her parents reacted to this situation really blew my mind The reason for their behavior later in the book didn t justify it at all for me Annie is a complicated character She comes across as a serious pushover but in other aspects shes mouthy, kind, crazy, moody..I couldn t pin her down to a predominant personality In the rest of the book you re following Emmitt A photojournalist that introduces with a bit of a frat boy personality We quickly learn there is a lotto him then meets the eye He had a brief relationship that ended up with a child that he did not know about for the first few years of her life He and the woman split, married and thought the child was the other mans No hard feelings were involved but he did his best to be involved in her life the best he could given his job takes him all over the world enter three men and a baby reference with this group Annie is still present but Emmitt s storyarc becomes the stronger of the two It s a great story I wish it would have been the main focus of the book with Annie coming in where Emmitt did instead It would have made the ending struggle work so much better if this had been Emmitt s story instead of Annie s Co Parenting can be a really difficult subject especially when there are broken families involved This book shows the ups and downs and how to address it in a healthy manner If I were to rate this on the overall flow, writing and story It would be around a three Annie s story would be around a 2.75 She goes through a lot yes but her story felt like it consisted mostly of tropes I hate saying that as in the authors note its supposed to be a tale about finding herself and understanding her heritage I just did not get that at all save for a couple of small anicdotes Emmitt s story close 4 but not quite there He goes through a lot of growth as a person Had the stronger story There were a few things I would rearrange or change the focus on but I enjoyed his side of the things farIts not a side of life that you see written much and it was handled really well Not the story I was expecting but a decent book for what it is

    This is such a fun read during the whole Covid quarantine Delightful sweet and fast pace I like how the MC both the female and male lead are flawed in their own way And they lean onto each other for inspiration and growth The secondary characters are so funny especially the men bonding First time reading the author and definitely worth looking into her other books I do say the storyline is typical rom com but the dialogue makes it enjoyable.

    I have been patiently waiting for Marina Adair s next book, and was excited when RomEantcally Challenged was announced I knew I would likely enjoy the book, but Annie and Emmitt s story exceeded every one of my expectations.Like Annie, I was adopted as a baby in Asia, and raised by white parents I am Korean not Vietnamese like her, but so much of her experience, feelings, and struggles resonated with me deeply She is trying to get over a bad break up and has moved to Rome, RI for a temp Physi I have been patiently waiting for Marina Adair s next book, and was excited when RomEantcally Challenged was announced I knew I would likely enjoy the book, but Annie and Emmitt s story exceeded every one of my expectations.Like Annie, I was adopted as a baby in Asia, and raised by white parents I am Korean not Vietnamese like her, but so much of her experience, feelings, and struggles resonated with me deeply She is trying to get over a bad break up and has moved to Rome, RI for a temp Physicians Assistant job.Emmett is home and taking time off from his job as a photojournalist, though not willingly He is surprised to find Annie renting his house and the two of them become reluctant roommates He also struggles with finding his place in his teenage daughter Paisley s life as he spends time with her now that he s home.I loved Emmitt and Annie together They provided support and clarity for the difficulties they were experiencing That connection between them made the romance even better.The secondary characters of Levi and Gray were interesting and added a lot to the story I am looking forward to getting their books in the series.Marina s writing and storytelling here are just fantastic This book is heartfelt, heartwarming heartbreaking, and unique I cannot recommend this book enough
