Continuing down the Audible Plus Catalogue, I thought I’d give these two romance books a try.
I really am trying to get more romance books on this blog but I really struggle with the genre. It’s really hard to find books that are believable yet funny and casual at the same time.
One of these hit the spot and the other hit the end of a cliff.

The Package by K. Blomberg
Originally published: 2019
Plot from GoodReads:
Christmas week can’t get any worse for Jules Jilliland.
Dumped by her boyfriend, rear-ended on the freeway, and fired from her job, she finds herself stuck in an elevator with a handsome stranger.
When their packages are accidentally swapped, will it end up being a misfortunate accident that suddenly brightens her holidays?
The first few minutes of this book started off pretty okay and then it just took a tumble and then fell off the edge of a cliff. That’s how I felt when I was done sitting through this very short audiobook – throwing it off a cliff.
Getting offered your dream job when you aren’t even remotely close to that field in your job felt unbelievable. A 52min fairytale instead of a full on romance book with the worst cheese ever. The flirting was weak, the build up was weak and the ending was a disappointment too. I hope this isn’t the direction that romance books are moving into now because I’ll end up dropping the whole genre… off a cliff too.
The book has a rating of 3.50 on GoodReads. I gave it a 2.
The Wedding Proposal by John Swansiger
Originally published: 2020
Plot from GoodReads:
Hanna is devastated when just a few weeks before her wedding, her fiancé drops the bomb that he doesn’t want to marry her. With the wedding bought and paid for (and completely non-refundable!), she decides to give it away to a deserving couple. Hanna chooses a pair of strangers that fate seems to put in her path, and then embarks on rearranging the wedding details with the help of the new bride-to-be’s brother. As Eric helps her make the final flower selections, put the finishing touches on the cake, and fine tune the other romantic details, something unexpected starts to happen. They find themselves falling for each other. Is Hanna’s broken heart to blame for pulling her toward Eric, or is this the beginning of something real and lasting?
I loved all the characters in the book. Yes, it was predictable and yes, you knew EXACTLY how it was going to end but it was sweet, cheesy and all heartwarming that it’s short length just left you wanting more. There were moments of sadness, of humour and of course, of love. I loved all the extra sound effects added to make the experience so much better.
While this wasn’t the most original plot in the world, it still left my heart fuzzing over.
The book has a rating of 3.83 on GoodReads. I gave it a 5.
