Publisher's Summary

From award-winning author Rachel Lacey comes the second installment in the Ms. Right series: a captivating romance about a reluctant bookseller finding love in unexpected places.

Lia Harris is tired of being the odd one out. She’s never quite fit in with her uptight family, and now that her roommates have all found love, she’s starting to feel like a third wheel in her own apartment. Fed up with her mother’s constant meddling in her love life, Lia drops hints about a girlfriend she doesn’t have. But with her brother’s London nuptials approaching, she needs to find a date to save face. Lia turns to her best friend, Rosie, for help, and Rosie delivers - with the fun, gorgeous Grace Poston.

Grace loves to have a good time, hiding her insecurities behind a sunny smile. Her recent move to London has provided her with a much-needed fresh start. Grace isn’t looking for love, and she hates weddings, having weathered more than her fair share of heartache. Friendships are different, though, so for Rosie’s sake, she reluctantly agrees to pose as Lia’s adoring girlfriend for the wedding festivities.

Both Grace and Lia are prepared for an awkward weekend, complete with prying family members and a guest room with only one bed. As it turns out, they get along well - spectacularly, in fact. Before they know it, the chemistry they’re faking feels all too real. But is their wedding weekend a fleeting performance or the rehearsal for a love that’s meant to last?

Critic Reviews

“Narrator Zara Hampton-Brown does an exemplary job with the British and American women in this audiobook.… Hampton-Brown's portrayal of Lia is spot-on, infusing her with calm seriousness. Rosie is exactly right—loving, lighthearted, and sweet. Grace is portrayed as being full of anxiety over her past. Together, the three women make for an entertaining and well-done listen.”AudioFile Magazine

“Fans of fake dating and road trip tropes will find plenty to enjoy.”Publishers Weekly

Trauma shuts down questions we need to truly live.

This is such a overwhelming story of what it means to find your truth. It starts so innocently with a fake girlfriend at a wedding. Getting to know Grace and Lia make this a fun read. The very real issues they both deal with bring other twists to the story. At times I struggled to understand Grace and was frustrated with her. The trust being built was so important but trusting herself was so difficult. Lia seemed to provide something Grace could not see she needed. The dialog was both heart wrenching at times and yet kept the characters vulnerable. It was a perfect book 2 and I enjoy the characters so much. Zara Hampton Brown was just a delight, the voices she gave the characters made them feel so real. Her voice was easy to listen too and Grace had such a warm feel.

Fake dating, cute story

This is the second in a duology. Lia and Grace’s story, was so
sweet, funny, and frustrating at times. There were many parts I laughed, and some that make me sad, but overall, a lighthearted story. This is a fake relationship trope, and I highly recommend it!

Interesting twists

I like the narrative. The characters are very human. The story takes a couple of unexpected twists, which I found intriguing and added to my appreciation of the author’s skill.

Loved it

Great listen, a tad bit sappy but overall I still throughly enjoyed it. I enjoyed seeing the old story connect to this one. Only happened in small parts but I think it was just enough to bring me extra joy from the past book into the new book with out taking over the new book.

4.5 Stars

No Rings Attached is book two in the Ms. Right series. This is a FF, fake relationship, friends to lovers book set in New York and England. There is also some heavy emotional stuff in this book. I actually got a little choked up at one point, which I love.

The two main characters were introduced in the prior book for this series. Lia is the best friend and roommate of Rosie, and she manages Rosie’s bookstore. She is bisexual. Lia is English but has been living in New York for many years at this point. Grace is Rosie’s other best friend. She is a lesbian and is American. She lives overseas and hasn’t been back to the states for a while due to some emotional stuff. In this book, Lia had to go back home to England for her brother’s wedding but due to her meddling family hassling her about being single and trying to set her up with an ex-boyfriend, she leads them to believe she has a girlfriend. Rosie reaches out to Grace and asks Grace if Grace will pretend to be Lia’s girlfriend for the weekend since Grace is currently living in England. And thus begins our story.

The author is a good story teller. I really enjoyed the book but for the story, not the romance. The romance was okay but I didn’t really feel the passion or connection. It is almost like women’s fiction with romance as an after fact. I liked the characters a lot. I love all of the roommates and friends. I guessed the twist early on. As soon as I heard what the emotional issue was for Grace, I knew what would end up being the twist. Even though it was predictable, it was still a good story. The author writes well and the book seems well edited. The only big complaint I have is the same from book 1. Why are the people of color introduced the way they are? In this book, this is how the black doctor was introduced: “Grace lifted her head to see a young Black man in a white coat.” It is just weird to me because every time some other random character is introduced, the author doesn’t say, “a white woman walked in the door” or anything like that. It is only with black people.

Overall, I am giving this book 4.5 stars but rounding down to 4 for the above reasons.

The first book was better, this was... meh!

This could've been a short story but it was unnecessarily drawn out. Grace irritated me so much and Lia, deserved so much more than her. Grace acted like there is only one way to make a child. Her first instinct was to ruin her entire life by jumping to conclusions instead of using her brain and mouth to talk to her loved ones to clear the matter up. While she was at it, she also decided to forget about the love and care her parents provided her, instead, she chose to ruminate over an alleged affair. The icing on the cake is her decision to not allow anyone to get close enough to her to call them her girlfriend oh, but sex is cool. Grace was a mess and a half and Lia should've left her to it while she instead sought out the meaning of self worth. I almost didn't finish this book but I was really hoping things wouldn't workout between the but unfortunately, it did. Ugh!

Accents don’t work

It doesn’t work for a narrator to voice two different characters, one in an English accent and one in a bad American accent, and then to narrate their thoughts BOTH in the English accent. I had to DNF this because it was so disconcerting.

Really good listen

I’ve just listened to this in 2 days. Didn’t quite like it as much as Read Between the Lines, but it’s an entertaining read, romantic and some good plot twists.

Across the pond

First of all it is nice to see a continuation to between the pages because those side characters deserved further exploring. And exploring they will do, crossing timezones and continents, with plenty of emotional upheaval, and even more accents whoch the narrator pulled of nicely.

The longest audiobook I have ever heard

I really liked book one, but this one was not for me. I could not get into the characters motivations and guessed the “plot twist” from the first moment. I skipped ahead a few times but I should have stopped listening at about 2 hrs. “At this point” I can’t imagine it could be more tedious.
