|DEFINITELY, MAYBE…OR LOVE, ACTUALLY?
English professor Bonnie Blythe expects her life to play out like her favorite novels, especially now that her long-term boyfriend has finally proposed. So when a shocking discovery leads Bonnie to end her engagement, she decides to close the book on love. But the plot thickens when a brand-new character enters the scene—and quickens Bonnie’s heart.
With his brilliant blue eyes, sexy accent, and irresistible charm, Theo Wharton is like a romantic hero straight out of a Jane Austen novel. When fate places Bonnie in England for a summer—conveniently close to Theo—she realizes a hot friends-with-benefits fling is exactly what she needs to start a fresh chapter. Just as Bonnie begins to believe she’s falling in love, an eye-opening revelation into Theo’s life makes Bonnie feel like she’s wandered into one of her favorite books. Will Bonnie have the courage to risk her heart and turn the page with the dashing Brit to find her true happy ending after all?
Smitten by the Brit is the second book in the “Sometimes in Love” Series by “new to me” author Melonie Johnson. I did not read the first one but I had no problems in catching up with the characters. If you plan on reading the series I would recommend starting with the first book before reading this one as you will otherwise spoiler too much of the story.
I really loved the dynamics between the characters. And Theo was really such a lovable guy. And from what I saw of the couple that was featured in the previous book that book is def. worth the read because Logan is simply hot with a capital “H”.
The setting of the plot was well developed and the story was written at a good pace. Yet I felt that the development of actual feelings between Bonnie and Theo came a little short within everything that was going on. It was almost like the spark might have happened in the first book where I as a reader was not present to witness it. Which was a shame as the whole setup was otherwise really adorable. I can recommend this book but I also recommend to read it the series in the right order so you hopefully will find that spark I was missing.
