This is a fun, flirty contemporary romantic comedy set in Scotland. This is book four of the Kinloch series, but can be read as a stand-alone. Sam lives in London and is an actress on a popular soap opera. She is on the brink of becoming a big star — all she needs is one lucky break. But when she drops everything for the chance to meet Hollywood’s biggest star, she blows it by blurting out a lie.
Now she’s got to write an entire album in ten days.
Sam enlists the help of electrician Jamie. He’s never been away from home, has never kissed a girl, and is set in his ways. He’s happy to live his quiet, small life, thank you very much. So, when Sam stays in his family home and talks him into writing an album with her, he finds his quiet life upended.
I thoroughly and completely loved this sweet and charming book. Sam and Jamie are just the cutest characters and their bumbling interactions, and hot inner thoughts, are a delight to read. They both have their own insecurities, and neither thinks the other likes them, let alone has feelings for them. By staying silent, there is a lot of confusion between them – each is too insecure to let their guard down. However, the more time the couple spends together, the closer they get and the more at ease they feel. I also thought it was really sweet that Jamie acknowledges his feelings for Sam first. Who doesn’t think a vulnerable man is sexy, right? The side characters, ones from previous books, make sporadic appearances in the book to add depth and levity to the story.
This book is a quick and easy read and I highly recommend you read it. In fact, I recommend you read the entire series – you won’t be disappointed.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. All opinions are my own.
