2 Book Lovers Reviews

The Godparent Trap is an enemies-to-lovers, opposites-attract romance. You couldn’t get much more opposite than these characters, but that’s what makes it fun.

Colby is a free-spirited food blogger, and Rip is a strait-laced accountant. The only thing that they ever really had in common was their mutual love for Monica and Brooks. When tragedy strikes and forces them to live together in order to raise Monica and Brooks’ two young children, they do what needs to be done in order to provide these children with a stable and loving home.

Now, Colby is messy, disorganized, and slightly out of her element, but she loves those kids dearly, and she is doing her very best. Living with a type A personality doesn’t make her life very easy, but Rip is a wonderful uncle who would always put his niece and nephew’s needs ahead of his own. While Rip likes everything to be scheduled, tidy, and perfect, Colby is just looking to hold everything together as best as she can.

If you enjoy grumpy characters in your romance novels, Rip will be just what you’re looking for. Yes, there may have been a few occasions where I wanted to smack this fictional character right upside his fictional head, but don’t be fooled by his gruff demeanor, he does have a softer side that he lets out once in a while.

The Godparent Trap was a good read. The children were adorable, Stu the cat was…well, a cat, and the back and forth between Colby and Rip was entertaining. It had an emotional story, a good dose of humor, and that underlying tension between the characters that made the romance interesting.
