I was originally going to title this post April Showers brings Bad Boys in Towels. Which I thought was so clever! But, after reading Rhyll Biest post’s on Romance without Slut-Shaming and watching Taylor Swift throw shade at the tabloids that talked about her dating life, I got to thinking about girl power. It really does come in all shapes and sizes and these April NA books really showcase that. Sometimes the plan you had in life doesn’t go your way and you find yourself in a stranger’s bathtub, owning that and THEN finding a new you is girl power, just ask Lydia in Kylie’s Scott’s Dirty. Maybe life has handed you some major lemons and you and make your own lemonade, that’s girl power, just turn to Ella in Paper Princess. Looking your old tormentor in the eye, forgiving them and moving on is girl power, Letty illustrated that in Never Sweeter. There are plenty of examples here this month of what makes each of these unique characters so powerful.
Dirty by Kylie Scott is the start of a new series, Highly-anticipated, it takes place in Coeur d’Alene where another favorite series of mine takes place there and here’s to hoping there’s crossover characters! Lydia’s thought she had a fairy tale romance complete with a wedding but that quickly crashed and burned. Vaughn didn’t think he would find a runaway bride in his childhood bathtub when he returned to figure out his next step. Never the less, a friendship with lots of sexual tension is formed. A great start to a new series, it’s filled with Scott’s trademark humor and sass, I can’t wait for the rest of the series to unfold with these quirky characters.
