Roman Holiday 2: Hitched by Ruthie Knox

This novella is actually a whole book divided to 10 parts. Each part is about 40-60 pages long. The first 5 parts are released weekly from 11th of November till 9th of December while the 5 following parts will be released around March 2014. 

If you haven't read the first Roman Holiday installment - you shouldn't read my review of the second part... (Here is the review of the first one

My god I just laughed and laughed this one out.. my dog here was VERY annoyed - what should a dog do to have his precious evening nap WITHOUT all those shouts of laughter! Jeez! 

So "this week" we continued our Roman Holiday adventure - Roman and Ashley are on their way to her grandmother's friend Mitzi. Most of the story is them on their way there. Ashley torments Roman literally 99.9% of the way - which he deserves! He is so anal and have to be in control of everything I LOVE him! (not because I could EVER handle anyone like him because I find that totally adorable! :D). To put it in his own words: "Of course she is a vegetarian, Because she's been put on the earth to plague him". Roman doesn't want to yield to Ashley's torments but deep down inside it seems that somehow they do something to him even if it's VERY little. Ashley on the other hand hates his gut! but she can't ignore the fact she is attracted to him - even if she doesn't want to be. Ashley is such an opposite to Roman. While he is closed and cold, she is open, sincere and full of emotion. I can't WAIT for them to hit it off!

Oh! and don't you dare miss the beginning of this part - as in the first one we have hilarious preface by Ruthie. In the first one it was just a preface but here it's also a reminder of what happened in the previous chapter.

Roman Holiday by Ruthie Knox isn't a series it's a whole contemporary romance book that was published in 6 parts (each about 40-60 pages). Originally planned to be published in 10 parts. First 5 parts were published weekly then there was a break of a few short months and following that 5 more parts were suppose to be published but for some reason they were all published together as parts 6-10. Now, you can either buy Part 1 (chapters 1-5) and Part 2 (chapters 6-10) separately or you can buy the whole book combined. 

I think it's a nice idea publishing a book in parts, kinda like a TV series. Yet again I'm not a very patient person so I rather have all of it at once to read at my own leisure. Now that it's all published you can still decide or reading it in parts, meaning, each part tells a short piece of the story it's not like reading a book and deciding to stop on a specific chapter (in the middle of all the mess/action/emotion). For those of us who find it hard to commit to long periods of reading - the way this one is built is just perfect!

The book tells the story of Ashley and Roman. Roman is a constructor who bought Ashley's grandmother's resort planning to demolish it and built a big fancy hotel. Ashley, who can't see the only place she called home destroyed "tricks" Roman into a "vocation" in which she takes him with her trailer to visit friends who came frequently to her grandmother's resort. 

What each one learns is quite unexpected. But as it seems both of them have much to learn about themselves and the way they chose to live their lives. Naturally there's also a romance here :) Roman and Ashley might be different - darkness to light kind of different, yet, they are perfect for each other exactly for this reason and for the fact that what they see in each other no one else ever did, not even themselves. 

As all books by Ruthie are - RECOMMENDED!
