GENRE: Contemporary Romance
What if the one time you didn’t want love was when you truly needed it?
Forced to flee her abusive ex, alone with no support, Elle is determined to rebuild her life and protect her five-year-old son. Not one to take the easy road, she opens a bookshop café, but opening day almost ends in disaster. In the midst of this chaos, the last thing she needs is a man as charming as George Jones getting in her way.
George has always been a sucker for a damsel in distress, and Elle ticks all the boxes. But Elle’s not interested in being rescued by anyone, especially not him. She knows her taste in men can’t be trusted, but fighting George’s charisma is harder than she expected. And George, who is not one to ignore an itch, has found there’s something about Elle that’s got under his skin
When Elle’s ex turns up to cause trouble, George must overcome his boyish flirtatiousness if he’s to convince Elle to trust herself and let him into her life. But can Elle put her past behind her before it overwhelms her present?
Well the one thing I know from reading this book is I really want to go read the first two! This book was completely stand alone, I had no clue until I finished that there were others.
Elle and George had a different relationship from the beginning. They danced around each other like professional ballroom dancers. George didn’t want to scare off skitterish Elle and Elle pretty much swore off men. It was fun reading. The growth in the characters was huge. I loved the instant bond George had with Toby. Goodness knows that boy needs a positive male influence.
Great book, awesome meaty characters. Solid 4 stars from me.
