Review (#giftedbook): No Rings Attached

Thanks to NetGalley and Montlake for this free digital copy in exchange for an honest review. This book is out today, 4/12!

No Rings Attached is the second book in Rachel Lacey’s Ms. Right series. I did not read the first book, but I don’t think not reading it affected my understanding or enjoyment of No Rings Attached. Overall, I really liked the main characters and love interests, Lia and Grace. Their chemistry was fantastic and and I was invested in their stories, particularly Lia’s. I think each character encouraged the other to grow in really worthwhile ways and I was rooting for them as a couple.

Towards the end of the story, I did get a bit annoyed with both characters–I found Lia to be really pushy at times and I also was getting tired of Grace’s attitude towards the end. I will say, a lot of the attitude towards the end seemed to be a result of Lia’s nonstop pushing. Lia is presented as a straight-forward, open, communicative character which is great…except when it wasn’t. There were a few moments in the book where I was just like, “omg can you just stop?!” Pair this with Grace, who did not want to talk about anything…and by the end it was getting old. It’s hard to talk about some aspects of this book without giving spoilers, but I will try. I did guess almost immediately what was up with the root of Grace’s struggles (so vague, I know, but I don’t want to spoil anything) and this book does include one of my least favorite “book plot twists” near the end.

However, the “happily ever after” was really satisfying in this story and it was fun and sweet. I do think that many who enjoy romances would enjoy this one and I’m looking forward to seeing what comes next for this author! No Rings Attached includes some fake dating, one bed scenarios, sunshine/grump, maybe could be a friends-to-lovers romance?, and steamy open-door scenes. Plus, I love the cover!
