Release Day Review: Yes & I Love You by Roni Loren


A beautifully emotional new contemporary romance from New York Times and USA Today bestseller Roni Loren.

Everyone knows Miz Poppy, the vibrant reviewer whose commentary brightens the New Orleans nightlife. But no one knows Hollyn, the real face behind the media star...or the fear that keeps her isolated. When her boss tells her she needs to add video to her blog or lose her job, she's forced to rely on an unexpected source to help her face her fears.

When aspiring actor Jasper Deares finds out the shy woman who orders coffee every day is actually Miz Poppy, he realizes he has a golden opportunity to get the media attention his acting career needs. All he has to do is help Hollyn come out of her shell…and through their growing connection, finally find her voice.

This is the first book I read my Roni Loren, and I have to admit that the blurb of the book wouldn't normally entice me to read this book. However, I wanted to try something different and decided to give it a chance. I am happy I did because I really enjoyed the characters and plot. The story was refreshing and I loved the main characters Hollyn and Jasper. Hollyn has Tourette's and social anxiety. She writes entertainment columns under the pen name Miz Poppy. However, her anxiety goes through the roof when her boss announces that he wants her to reveal herself and start presenting her columns on video. Jasper is a very social and outgoing actor in an improv group, and is going to start giving improv classes at the same office Hollyn works.

I loved how these two met and the development of their relationship was great. When Jasper finds out that Hollyn is Miz Poppy he wants to make a deal with her. He can teach her the tricks of improv, help her loosen up and move through her fear of being in front of a camera. And she can help him by reviewing his improv group to get him noticed by a bigger audience. They are both very attracted to each other and when feelings get involved things can get complicated. I loved the interaction between Hollyn and Jasper, they had amazing chemistry and were a great match. I really enjoyed seeing Hollyn loosen up and be more comfortable around him. The development of their relationship had a great pacing, and I really liked the writing style of the author. Yes & I Love You was a great contemporary romance. I look forward to reading more books Roni Loren.
