Rash & Rationality

Rash & Rationality Rash & Rationality 
by Ellen Mint

Love is a lot closer and more complicated than Marty ever dreamed.

Marty Dashwood is a true romantic. Hearts, chocolates, kisses on the hand—the whole nine yards. His killjoy brother Eldon doesn’t believe in love at first sight, but one day Marty will have the perfect meet-cute, she’ll fall helplessly in love with him and they’ll live happily ever after.

Brandy’s worked with Marty for almost two years. He’s the best friend she could ever have hoped for after the accident that took her husband. So she should be happy that Marty finally found what he’d always wanted, right?

So why does it feel like every time she sees Marty with the ‘Social-Media Angel’ he rescued from a mugger, a piece breaks off her heart? How can she explain any of this to him before she loses her best friend forever?

This was a cute feel-good story with a nod to Georgian era romance with its longing, angst, and light-hearted approach to love. II loved that this story featured a male character that was over the top in his affections and mindset on securing love. The story moved very well. The characters were engaging and relatable, especially Brandy. I think the author handles the way she dealt with the loss of her husband very well. It was heartwarming at how clueless Marty was as to what was right in front of him. Marty finally realizing that the woman of his dreams was right in front of him the whole time was a fun ride. This nod to Sense & Sensibility was well done. I would recommend this book to lovers of classic romance with a modern twist.
