What is Three Strikes and You’re Mine by R.S. Grey about?
Dear Past Me,
Future You here, coming to offer a little advice: hang on for dear life. This summer is going to be a wild one. I know what you’re thinking: Life’s going so well! I don’t have a care in the world! Wrong. That culinary career you love so much? It’s about to go up in smoke, and your boyfriend? Yeah…he’s a goner too. If only love were as simple as, say, actually adding yourself to the lease agreement so you don’t suddenly find yourself loveless, jobless, and homeless!
Did your five-year plan include moving back in with your family and sharing a bed with your Nonna? No? Well, hate to break it to you…it’s exactly as traumatizing as it sounds.
Have you had enough? Too bad. Buckle up—it gets worse. Your new boss is a professional baseball player, and he’s hot, like really hot, but you’ll pretend not to notice because he’s a single dad and it feels wrong to ogle him in front of his innocent child. Unfortunately, he thinks you’re sexy as hell too. Unrequited love is one thing; mutual off-limits pining destined to explode in the worst of ways? What could go wrong…wrong…wrong… (That’s me fading out because you have to take it from here, kid. Good luck! Don’t screw this up for me.)
Your future (wiser) self
Rating: 4/5 Stars
If there’s one thing you can count on with an R.S. Grey book, it’s that the book is definitely going to live up to its romcom description. This book is absolutely hilarious, and I adore Chloe.
Luke’s daughter, Harper, inadvertently meddling into Chloe and Luke’s relationship (at the beginning of the book, their working relationship) by not understanding boundaries (like why she has to force her dad to tell Chloe how pretty she looks before a night out) was so sweet and hilarious in how it impacted the two adults.
The risk of the past repeating itself (Chloe just got out of a relationship with her older boss at her old job) spells out why it would be a bad idea for the two of them to get together, even though they’re technically not forbidden to. Even though Chloe has a good relationship with Harper, Luke being a single parent — not just single — adds complications, too.
Overall, this book had a bunch of laugh-out-loud funny moments, and I’m so grateful to have received an ARC in exchange for an honest review!
