Summary (via Goodreads): A full-length standalone romantic comedy from USA Today best-selling author R.S. Grey.
When her mother’s incessant matchmaking hits an all-time high, Georgie Archibald does what any sensible woman would do: she flees the country.
Seeking refuge in the picturesque seaside village of Vernazza, Italy, Georgie’s only plan is to lie low, gorge herself on gelato, and let the wine and waves wash her troubles away…that is until she wakes up in a bed that belongs to the most romantic-looking man she’s ever seen.
Gianluca. After going out of his way to rescue her, the former London financier turned mysterious recluse makes it clear that despite acting as her white knight, he has no plans to co-star in her fairytale.
But Georgie isn’t asking for his heart – she’s merely intrigued.
After all, Gianluca isn’t just gorgeous – tall and tan from days spent in the sun – his touch sets her world on fire. With him, Georgie experiences the most intoxicating passion she’s ever known, and it only takes a few steamy nights for her to realize that sometimes running away from trouble is the best way to find it.
I enjoyed this one a lot. The narrators took a little getting used to, but I’d recommend the audiobook. I’m giving it 4.5 out of 5 stars.
I liked Georgie’s character a lot. I felt like we could have maybe been friends if she was real. And Gianluca was a hunk, and seemed like an amazing guy. He’s going on my book boyfriend list.
This book didn’t surprise me much, especially something that I think was supposed to be a plot twist. Never the less, I enjoyed it a ton. The mental picture the author painted of Italy was breathtaking. I’m jealous because I want to travel so bad!
Lots of the other characters were great too. This book wasn’t super happy go lucky; some of the characters had gone through/were still going through some hard times. I won’t say more on that, but just be prepared for some feels. I can’t wait to read another one of her books!
