Publisher's 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 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".

Better than the original

A Notting Hill knock off and I 1000% prefer this version over the original. I wish the film industry would do a remake but use this story. Loved it.

Lovely!

I don't understand the reviewer that didn't like the main character. I absolutely loved Aubrey. He was not a wet blanket by any means. It was a lovey romantic rom com with a quirky book store owner who was constantly surprising himself with his own courage, and an up and coming actor who seemed all together but was also learning how to be courageous himself. The reviewer posted that they were hoping Blake would leave Aubrey, however I wouldn't have blamed Aubrey for leaving Blake. Lovely ending to a lovely story.

Brilliant!!!

Absolutely brilliant! Totally a feel-good read!Perfect book to cozy up with when the weather sucks and your soul is hurting, because it is funny, and mostly happy.
I am sad that the next book in the series is focused on a different couple because oh boy would I love to know what happens later with Blake's career as well as Aubrey's store.

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!
