Happy Wednesday all!
Excited to share with you today my review for this book that I absolutely adored! A huge thank you to Natalie for my invitation to this tour!🔥
ABOUT THE BOOK:
The first in a new series, a journalist focused on her career and a sexy Scottish comedian turn a one night stand into forever.
Cassie Crow leaves for vacation with two goals: fill up her empty charm bracelet and have a one night stand. For once, she wants to have fun instead of obsessively checking her work email. And kissing a man in a castle who’s dressed as a Scottish Highlander is the perfect solution.
Except when that man turns out to be Logan Reid, the host of a popular sketch show—and Cassie has just been roped into his latest prank. She wants nothing to do with his antics, but that was a really great kiss, and one night together couldn’t hurt.
It’s clear that one night isn’t enough and when Logan’s show brings him closer to Cassie, they decide to give dating a try. Can the woman who’s focused solely on her career and the man who refuses to take life seriously make it work?
My Thoughts witty. Steamy. Sweet.
This book made me want to drop everything, pack my bags, and head to Scotland, to find me a man in a kilt. Seriously Logan f*cking Reid would probably make any girl rethink the whole kilt thing. Although apparently Cassie and her friends had a thing for kilts. Melonie Johnson has written an engaging story packed with an abundance of humor, steam, and love. This book had everything I love in a romcom; a likable female protagonist, a strong female friend group, and of course a hot guy with a heart of gold and a killer sense of humor.
Cassie and her besties are on a dream vacation in Europe. They are spending their last few days in the UK and Cassie has yet to fulfill her desire for a foreign fling. SO when she runs across Logan in a kilt, in a castle, she is willing to overlook certain things and throw caution (along with other things) to the wind. What transpires is a romance full of push and pull, and will they won’t they? Will Cassie and Logan be able to let their guards down and allow love into their lives?
This book was just so much fun! I loved Cassie and her friends, this was a group of girls I would love to hang out with. I also loved Logan‘s friend Theo, and I cannot wait for his story. Logan was a great guy a little selfish, but he came around. The chemistry between Cassie and Logan was pretty darn sizzling. Something I really appreciated about this book was the drama was pretty realistic, not too over-the-top, The perfect amount of angst. I really love romances with more humor than angst, I like to laugh more than cry.
Simply put this was an engaging story that left me wanting more! Cannot wait for Bonnie and Theo‘s book!
