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?

I thought I loved Bonnie Blythe and Theo Wharton when they were just meddling friends in book one of the series but I had no idea how hard I would fall for them in this book. Bonnie has it rough in the beginning of the book as she finds herself ending her very long engagement to her douche of a fiancé. Thankfully that is just the in Theo is looking for. Even as secondary characters in their friends’ book (Getting Hot With The Scot) their chemistry was hard to miss. 

Poor martyr Theo is doing everything to maintain his Duke title and hold his family together and an affair with an American is the last thing he should be pursuing. However and thankfully, the both of them can’t stay away from each other. Especially since Theo reminds Bonnie so much of romantic heroes in the books she loves and made career teaching about.

Melonie Johnson really knows how to make supporting characters shine through. It was hard to not be entertained by Bonnie‘s girl gang as they rallied behind their girl or Theo‘s family. 

The story is super charming and full of swoon. My heart is still so light from their well deserved HEA. I recommend this romantic comedy to anybody who needs a great love story to lift them out of the book funk. Even if you have not read the first book you can dive into it as a standalone… with minor spoilers.
