    Loved so so much

    Every one who knows me knows I'm a Samantha Young fan! Especially the On Dublin series! I love it with all my heart!! This one isn't like it, but it's sooo good!! I must say I didn't agree with it all, but I get it! I understand were it all came from and that's a lot from me! I'm mostly a simple person who can figure things out without it being said or done. Like lyrics they need to be what they say to be in order for me to understand the meaning. This one had parts that made me think "why?" but I understand it, I get it all! Didn't make me happy all the time, but a journey is never simple and drama free. Caleb was a not so nice man when they met and afterward neither of them really got along! I understand that also because I would probably be the same way. I love enemies to lovers this wasn't exactly like it but in a way it actually was. So I loved it! I love how Ava loves to dress up for herself! I know lots of people do it for other people, but to do it for yourself is important! And she was so nice and caring! I admit when I see a beautiful woman (Yep not afraid to admit!) I also think is she nice or is she fake. Because we learn in many ways they are fake, that's sad actually! I have a soft spot for Harper and Jamie also! Harper is someone I would love to have on my side, to consider family! Jamie is just even though we didn't get to see a lot of him he's just awesome! He was there no questions asked to help! It was sweet!

    Enjoyable but slightly let down by the hero

    Three and a half stars. Ava Breevort is travelling home to Boston following the funeral of her former best friend. Her attempt to upgrade is thwarted by a big Scottish guy who looks like a Viking and rudely pushes in front of her snagging the last seat in first class. Then as if fate is laughing at her, everywhere she goes in the airport he is there, pushing in, being rude. But what starts out as name-calling and dislike soon morphs into attraction. What starts out as a one-night stand turns into more when Ava's client introduces her to a 'family friend' who is stuck in Boston for a couple of weeks due to the Icelandic volcano eruption creating flight havoc - you guessed it, the family friend is none other than the unfriendly Viking, Caleb Scott, and Ava's client wants Ava to show him around the city. Of course Ava and Caleb both have 'issues', they also have preconceptions about each other, its almost Pride and Prejudice, what concerned me was that Ava seemed deluded when it came to Caleb. In fact I would go as far to say that he was not a nice man. He only appears to be polite to friends, family and people of a higher social status - waitress etc get not a word of thanks - and Ava thinks this is okay. She realises that her ex-boyfriend only ever complimented her on her looks, never on her personality, and yet she thinks it is okay that Caleb only ever compliments her on her body and how it makes him feel - because he's honest about it? I'm sorry I don't see the difference. Also, because this is told from Ava's POV I really don't understand Caleb's motivations - I think if he had been more likable this would have got four stars. Although there's a lot of brogue it wasn't irritating, probably because Samantha lives in Scotland and therefore understand the natural cadence of the accent and which words to use when. And how refreshing to have a Scottish hero who doesn't wander around wearing a kilt, playing the bagpipes, or owning a Castle! I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

    Sexy and Enjoyable!

    Absolutely loved it!! I cannot wait to read it again, I feel like the second time I will be able to soak in the amazing banter between the two main characters. Caleb is mysterious and even though I don't normally love when the male is fairer in complexion, I really could envisage him and was on board with the whole look and feel of the characters and their stories. The book is flirtatious and hilarious which is amazing and a testament to Samantha Young's writing and skills. For me it was channelling a lot of Hero vibes! If you're a big fan of Hero then you will definitely love this one! It is a very enjoyable read. I loved the book as well because I really could relate to the main character Ava. I was so excited when I found out that she is an Interior Designer, because that is what I do and what I love to do, so it was thoroughly enjoyable for me as I could really put myself in Ava's shoes, more than usual. I loved the way SY portrayed this as well, she was accurate in her descriptions and relationships between Interior Designer and client. It is sometimes truly like that. I also really enjoyed the character development between Ava and Caleb, despite the romance side of it, it was really enjoyable reading and seeing their actual friendship build. The novel has it all, including SY's famous best friend of the main character and the story of truly strong women, who are dealing and address actual real life issues. This makes it so relatable but also just love the friendship, their devotion to one another. It is uplifting and heart warming. I really love how SY does this an incorporates this in most of her novels as well as bringing in other key characters that add to the story and make it really feel like a whole picture and real life scenario. Caleb is book boyfriend material and you will not be disappointed with their dialogue and relationship journey! Cannot wait to read it again!!
