Claire Thackeray: Hardworking single mom and gossip columnist. Hoping for the inside scoop on sexy billionaire Hal North, aka her teen crush!
Most wary of: Gorgeous men who set her heart racing. (Been there, got the T-shirt—and the baby!)
Hal North: Bad boy made good. Back in his hometown as new owner of the Cranbrook Park estate. Determined to put his troubled past behind him.
Most wary of: Journalists—especially pretty ones, like new neighbor and tenant Claire Thackeray.I was delighted to receive an Advance Release Copy (ARC) of Liz Fielding's latest book, she is one of my favourite romance authors and I was keen to get stuck in.
First of all, I loved the cover, both the image - although the models didn't really match what I had in my head (do they ever?) - and the blurb on the back, which was written in a different style than previous works I've read.
When I pick up a Liz Fielding book, I know I'm going to get a good read and I wasn't disappointed. The characters were well-rounded and relatable and the plot flowed, drawing me in further. There was definite page turning quality and the only time I put the book down was to do the school run, I didn't think the teachers would be too impressed if I didn't show up.
I didn't experience as much of a rollercoaster as with other books by this author but it was still a thoroughly enjoyable read and I would happily recommend it.
