The BookViral Review: Genre – Romantic Comedy Fiction

Romantic comedies have long been the comfort reads of the romance fiction genre and for readers looking for an offbeat romance with lovable characters No Romance Allowed certainly fits the bill. An agreeably warm story that bounces along effortlessly on the genuine chemistry of its lead characters, Rory and Peter, Wu takes the much-loved tropes of the genre and makes them her own.

It’s fair to say that No Romance Allowed doesn’t follow a generic plot and is all the better for it. Wu’s narrative commentary on bullying in the workplace is pitched just right whilst her dialogue has a genuine air of authenticity to it as multiple plot threads come together.

The aim of any romantic comedy author hoping to make the bestseller charts should be to write a story so appealing that it persuades viewers to suspend reality and let themselves fall in love with love. Wu does this and does it well. Not only are Rory and Peter likeable they are easy to root for whilst a liberal smattering of misdirection keeps us guessing till the very end! 

A polished and highly enjoyable debut from Wu No Romance Allowed introduces an exciting new author to the genre and is highly recommended.
