**I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in return for an honest review**
Bonnie Blythe has spent the majority of her life planning out the perfect life for herself, from marriage, to house, to kids. But when she makes a shocking discovery, she calls off her engagement, shattering the dream she always wanted. With the help of her adoring friends, and too handsome Brit, Theo Wharton, she is able to open a new chapter in her life when she is given the opportunity to teach at a prestigious university for the summer in London.
I had been looking forward to reading this since I first saw Theo and Bonnie interact in Melonie Johnson’s first book in the series, Getting Hot with the Scot. My heart broke for her when she called off her engagement. She is the type of character where everything she does and says, Melonie Johnson makes you care for her and cheer for her every step of the way. The way her relationship built with Theo slowly and yet passionately was the highlight of this book.
Their relationship aside, the plot was amazing. Every chapter was moving the story along and at no time did I feel a lull in what was happening. I was constantly turning the page dying to read what came next. Beautifully written!
Would I Recommend:
Just like with Getting Hot with the Scot, I absolutely recommend this book. The author immediately sucks you in with her writing and the characters make the story come to life. I loved it!
