    Fun read

    A fun read filled with witty banter, hilarious situations, and a hunky Scotsman. Sloane and Galen are great characters and when their pretend relationship turns into more, I found myself cheering that they find a way to make it work! A wonderfully written story with a brilliant Scottish twist on a familiar trope. I definitely recommend this one.

    sweet and light hearted read

    Someone described this book to me as a sweet and light hearted read, perfect for when you are tired of all the angst … and boy was she right. Now, I knew going in that this book would be great – I absolutely adore Julia London, doesn’t matter if it is contemporary or historical or even what name is on the cover  Her characters are gripping and the stories are always page-turners, and The Perfect Bargain is no different. I was totally enthralled by Sloane and Galen as they bickered and sniped and slowly fell in love – because you know all of that snark was hiding things that involved the heart. A definite case of opposites attract, as they got to know each other more they started to realize (of course) that they have a lot more in common than they thought. And that what they believed about themselves and what they truly want may not be right. I have to say that my only complaint is that the books focused on them and we really didn’t get a chance to get to know anyone else in the little village. I think that there was definitely a chance to show that small town Scottish quirkiness, but I’m hoping this is the start of a series so we can see that more down the road. If you are looking for fun and romance, humor and heart, look no further. Once again London delivers all of that in spades and gives you a little of Highland flair … because who doesn’t love a man who speaks with a brogue and looks great in a kilt!

    Funny and sexy!

    Funny and sexy, a little predictable, but I loved it! Galen and Sloane get off on the wrong foot, but as they get to know each other and give into their mutual attraction, they get more than they originally bargained for. Galen is super yummy and I loved the gesture he makes towards the end for her. This is a light and fun read that has be wondering who the next one to find her highlander will be. I received an ARC via NetGalley for the purpose of an honest review. I was not compensated for this review, all conclusions are my own.

    Pubs and Accents and Kilts, Oh My.

    I have a thing for Scotland and Scottish accents that started with Sean Connery and has continued with Ewan McGregor, Gerard Butler, and James McKidd, just to name a few. (Okay, yes the kilts play into it too!) Combined Scotland with a boyfriend for hire scheme, this looked like a fun read. Sloane Chatfield struck me as the overly responsible good girl, the one who always follows the rules and never does anything crazy that might end in embarrassment. After her fiance dumps her for being to rigid and controlled, her friends try to find her someone new. But Sloane's not really ready to move on. It's while watching Outlander, that she comes up with a plan to find herself a "Jamie". After several months of no luck finding him, not that she was looking, she tells her friends she is heading to Scotland to find one "at the source". She has everything all planned out. Stay a few weeks, "find" her Jamie, then after a brief but intense courtship, be "dumped" by him. Thus diverting her friends from setting her up again. When her friends show up way ahead of schedule, she has to find someone to play "Jamie" quickly or risk being found out. Of course the small town she means limited choices, but the owner of the pub she has been visiting daily for wifi access and cell reception fits the bill nicely. Galen Buchanan is struggling to keep the pub that was his late uncle's going. It's been one repair after another. When the prim and proper American propositions him about being her pretend boyfriend, he first thought is to say no. But with the refrigerator needing to be replaced and another dozen repair projects that needed doing and very little in the way of funds, Galen reluctantly accepts her offer. These two were striking sparks off each other from the beginning and it was fun to watch. From his goads about what a "real" girlfriend would do, to her constant suggestions on how to spruce things up - they kept each other riled up. Another thing that I liked was that they didn't have the "big misunderstanding" completely wreck them. There were some bumps, of course, but you could see the trust was there and they waited for explanations instead of jumping to conclusions... mostly. Overall I did enjoy the book, and gave it 4 sexy accented stars.

    ...kept me in stitches.

    Let me help you, help me. Sounds confusing but that's the premise of Jessa McAdams romance. The extremes that Sloane went to kept me in stitches. The Perfect Bargain is a cute story that is funny, sexy and irreplacable. Loved it.
