Last year, Bronte left Sydney for a wedding in England, where she met newly single Alex. After a night of passion they parted ways, and Bronte returned to Australia. Now working on a picture desk for a magazine in London, Bronte is about to meet her new colleague, who turns out to be all too familiar. Although awkward at first, as Alex is now engaged to the girl he was on a break from when they met, they soon become friends. But as the two get closer, and the wedding day looms, it is clear that Alex and Bronte have unfinished business…
My opinion: This was the first Paige Toon book I have read, despite having a couple on my Kindle for some time. I don’t know why I have put it off so long and know I want to read more soon!
Australian Bronte is at her friend’s hen party in London when she meets Alex. Alex has just split up from his girlfriend and he and Bronte are instantly drawn to one another. He ends up back at her hotel room and one thing leads to another. But in the cold light of day he receives a text from the girlfriend he has just broken up with and he heads back to her while Bronte goes back home to Australia. A year later, Bronte is back in England working for a magazine and on her first day bumps into someone she never thought she would see again. That’s right. Alex also works at the magazine.
I was lucky enough to win a signed copy of this book after requesting it on Netgalley, so I want to say thank you to Simon and Schuster for that. I have seen so many great reviews of this book and just had to try it for myself, and boy was I in for a treat! I wasn’t quite sure if I liked Bronte at first, but really warmed to her when she moved to the UK. I also liked reading about her circle of friends in London, which was big enough to give a feel of a group, but not so big that I lost track of the characters. I thought I could see where the story was going, but it really kept me guessing as it kept twisting. I wasn’t expecting lots of the things to happen, and I’m so glad that they did as they were totally the right things.
A great thing about this book is that it has got facets to the story that you just don’t expect if you take it at face value. I totally devoured this book and only wish there was more of it! I hope we see more of Bronte at some point in the future, and in the mean time I need to catch up with those Paige Toon books that are sat on my Kindle!
My rating: Five stars
I received an advance copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review
