Summary

Bookstore owner Aubrey Barnes likes his quiet, orderly London life, thank you very much. His shop may be struggling, his only employee is a menace, and his plumbing is one creaky pipe away from disaster, but he can handle it. Maybe. He cannot, however, handle the film company that's thrown his Soho street into chaos.

And he definitely can't handle the charismatic American actor Blake Sinclair.

Which is why he's extremely reluctant to lease out his shop as a set for Blake's film, but it's his one opportunity to save his business. Now he can't get away from the distractingly hot actor.

Then Aubrey finds himself alone with Blake in a trailer, and what happens next turns London's heat wave into an inferno that leaves him breathless.

Aubrey is not cut out for the high-profile life of dating a celebrity, especially an American actor who's not even out yet. Good thing their tryst is absolutely not going anywhere.

Of course, when you expect nothing, that's exactly when it starts to mean everything.

Contains mature themes.

An unexpected read

Really enjoyed the book. Super story. I enjoyed it from start to finish. I would like to say I couldn’t put the book down… certainly kept me awake listening long after I should’ve gone to bed!

An awful main character

Pros: the reader is excellent, as always. One half of the couple, Blake, is too-good-to-be-true charming. But this is a romance novel, that's what I'm here for.

Cons: oh god, Aubrey is awful. Just an intolerable person, I can't believe I read the whole book. He becomes less awful as the book goes on, but the only way I can possibly believe in their initial mutual attraction is if he is INSANELY hot, because it sure wasn't Aubrey's prickly, wet blanket personality. I think he was meant to be relatable? I ended the book thinking "I really hope Blake leaves him, and soon".
