    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.

    Entangled in Scotland

    The Perfect Bargain is the first contemporary romance I have read by Julia London, but I have read several of her historical romances. The story is the start of a fresh and fun new series for Julia writing as Jessa McAdams. It doesn't hurt that the theme of the novel is about a woman looking for her personal Jamie Fraser, the hero of the Outlander series. Sloane Chatfield finds a small town in Scotland to spend her vacation as a way to pretend to find the Highlander of her dreams and break up with him before her friends come to join her. The only place she can find a Wi-Fi signal is in Galen Buchanan's bar. When her friends change their plans and decide to come early, Sloane is desperate to find a ruggedly handsome Scot to play her boyfriend for a few days. The brusque solicitor turned bar owner scoffs at the "prim" American lass when she suggests he pretend to be her boyfriend. The need for a new refrigerator for the bar forces him to take her up on her offer, not knowing how much the arrangement will change his life. Sloane and Galen are a couple not one person would ever see together. Sloane is a bit uptight, and lacking confidence since her ex completely obliterated her personal self-worth. Galen is a hometown boy just trying to keep his grandfather's bar afloat. The two end up bickering like an old married couple, which I found sinfully delightful. This story twists and turns like some of the bumpy, dirt roads of the Highlands. I know in a murder mystery the reader wants to guess the ending before the last page. In a romance novel, the best part for me is to be left wondering what will happen next at every turn. This book had me laughing, crying, and waiting with anticipation of the next spectacular moment. The book ended on a fabulous note, and I can not wait to see what is in store for the next book in the How to Marry a Highlander series. Thank you to Julia London/Jessa McAdams and Entangled Lovestruck for granting me with a copy of The Perfect Bargain in exchange for an honest review.

    OK read

    This was an ok read for me. It was a quick read that had plenty of heat. Sloane and Galen were a cute couple. She fled to Scotland after her fiancé left her at the altar. She meets Galen at a pub that he owns and they don’t really hit it off at first. She offers him money as an investment to help his pub in exchange for him to be a fake boyfriend for when her friends get there. Can what starts as a fake relationship turn into something real? This story just didn’t speak to me but it may to others. I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley and I am voluntarily leaving an honest review.

    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! (Complimentary copy provided in exchange for an honest review.)
