eARC fron Netgalley for Review
Jessica Devlin isn't looking for love. Heartbroken after being dumped by her unfaithful ex-fiancÃ©, she s determined to have a fabulous time during her vacation in England where she ll be maid-of-honor at her cousin s wedding. After working overtime as beauty editor of Orlando s O Tart magazine, avoiding dating, and putting on ten pounds, Jess is ready to toss her past like an empty lipstick tube and party like a single gal.
But when she steps into the church on her cousin s wedding day, she sees the one man who could sabotage her plan James-Bond-gorgeous Nick Mondinello. She s never forgotten the London marketing exec who held her in his arms after her beloved grandfather s funeral two years ago. Ambitious, and lusted after by women everywhere, Nick is completely wrong for guarded, Plain Jane Jess.
Could Spy Man Nick ever fall for her? Nope. Not unless Jess is one lucky girl.
I miss ready chick lit with light humor and normal working girl with man problems, so when I saw this available on Netgalley I requested to read it. I love Jess, she is not pretentious nor sickly sweet. She is just a normal girl. Jess is relatable. Most women have reservations after being dumped by a man they love and along with it some self confidence gets taken away. In this book Jess exhibited those issue but they are not as heavy and annoying as some.
I like the transition of the story. Girl meets boy in passing years ago in a drunken moment after her grand father died. Girl got dumped by cheating ex-boyfriend 4 months before she goes on vacation. Girl and boy met again, strong attraction in place. Boy and Girl fell in love, at the end there was a small hiccup but they live happily ever after. Cute story, light read that provided plenty of humor. Recommended for chick lit lovers and romance.
