Coming up with a March reading list (TBR) isn’t always easy. However, adding D’Vaughn and Kris Plan a Wedding should be the easiest decision you make all month.

When it comes to making a monthly TBR, there are a few avenues you can go down. You can pick books you already own, find some new releases, or you can scour the bookstore and library shelves. I’m always on the lookout for suggestions from fellow romance readers online. But, no matter how you decide to pick what you’re reading next month, there is one book that deserves to be hyped even more.

Written by Chencia C. Higgins and part of my romances you should have on your radar in 2022, this new release didn’t disappoint at all. It was honestly such a refreshing romance and one that I’m shouting from the rooftops about.

While the title does seem to give a lot away, this book was full of surprises and honestly, could end up being a new favorite of mine. That’s why it needs to be on your March 2022 TBR.

D’Vaughn and Kris Plan A Wedding is the perfect addition to your March TBR.

It would only be right to talk about what this book is about. It was released on January 25th, 2022, and has a unique concept. The book follows D’Vaughn and Kris who go on a reality show in which they have to convince their families that they’re getting married in six weeks. If they’re able to do so, they each get $100,000. Sounds simple enough, right?

However, Chencia C. Higgins completely flips the script when it comes to everything you might imagine this book would feature. Most reality TV shows feature straight couples, but Higgins decides to feature queer couples with D’Vaughn and Kris as one of many pairings. It’s such a refreshing take on the trope most of us have been accustomed to.

In addition to featuring queer characters, the two leads are also Black, making this a Black Love story. It’s truly so incredible to watch their two cultures mesh together as Kris is Afro-Latina and D’Vaughn is Black. The two have a few challenges when it comes to the misconceptions of their cultures but work through it together.

While the book does feature some tropes from reality TV, including the “jealous ex/flirty girl” or “family drama,” the book doesn’t ever feel too angsty. If anything, it’s pretty upbeat and fun while also featuring some steamy moments between our leads. It’s also incredibly funny as both Kris and D’Vaughn’s families don’t have a problem, cracking jokes to, about, and with them.

Overall, this book is a lot of fun, but it does feature some serious moments. D’Vaughn uses the show as a way to come out to her family, and it’s pretty emotional to see that happen. We also see the two grapple with their feelings throughout the book, making for some small yet believable conflicts.

As someone who reads a lot of romance, D’Vaughn and Kris Plan A Wedding felt like the perfect read, especially with spring coming up. If you haven’t checked it out yet, then let this be your sign to pick it up and hopefully, find a new romance to enjoy.
