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.

Yes, I was smitten by your Brit Melonie Johnson!
"Smitten by the Brit" is the second book in the "Sometimes in Love" series.
It sequels "Getting hot with the Scot" (Cassie and Logan's story)
Ms Johnson uses Shakespeare and Austen references throughout this book and it fits this story perfectly. I haven't read any Shakespeare or Austen works (yet) , only seen a play and movie adaptations. But I loved it. It made me fell even more for Theo the Brit and Bonnie.

Because of all the back story in book 1, I highly recommend (but not necessary) reading it before starting on "Smitten by the Brit"

Like with the first book the thing I'm most annoyed with is the POV. In this book it could've been more clearly devided between Bonnie's POV and Theo's POV, it would make the reading flow better.
That said, I think the writing in this book is better than it was in the previous book. The flow is better.

All in all, I'm smitten. Simply as that.
And then there is the battle between Logan the Scot and Theo the Brit.
I'm torn. I love the Scottish brogue and I love the British gentleman. Might just be a tie... No, I don't think I can choose one over the other.

Leanne Simmons and Callum Davidson are complete opposites. As soon as they meet, they know they won’t get along. However, for the sake of their TV show, they agree to put their differences aside. But it’s not as easy as they think. For one, there’s the unexplainable physical attraction they can’t seem to shake. And for two, everything out of their mouths seems to rub the other the wrong way.

"His kiss was better than running on air"

You could feel the tention between Leanne and Callum all through this novella. Just waiting for their bubble to burst.

So happy that L.H Cosway writes about characters outside the norm, who ain't perfect, who are flawed and has issues they struggle with.
Life ain't perfect or easy, so why should stories be any different?

The narrators did a great job, specially Will M. Watt. Love his accent.

Nicole Edwards know how to push my buttons with this story that's for sure!
I took a few trips down memory lane while listening to this story. It was very emotional at times.

Curtis is Lorri and Curtis Walker's story. The heads of the Walker family in Coyote Ridge.

Before this book I listened to the books about their sons and while doing so I wanted to know more about Lorri and Curtis.

In this book you get to know them both from the time they were teenagers. Follow them on their journey to adulthood, their ups and downs, their sorrows and their happiness.

I'm left of wanting more of this Walker family saga

It's not often I have to take long breaks from the audiobook I'm listening to, but with this one I had to. I had to have several days where I wasn't listening to this story.
That hopelessness and sorrow felt so real, almost too real.
I like how the story was divided in the differen POV's. How we got glimses into the past, slowly, not revealing the plot too quickly.

I knew from the title of this book that there were things I wouldn't like about this story. But it is narrated by Tor Thom and Charley Ongel, two of my favorite narrators so I had to give it a go.

Daddy play isn't my thing at all. But if you look past that issue I really liked the plot of this story.
Troubled past, doing the right thing, second chances, biker, beard, tattoos... Love it.

I went from hating this story, to loving it, to hating it and loving it all over again.

Lucinda Riley has a unique way to blend history with modern tales.Mixing fiction with truth. Romance with sadness. Love with grief.

I lost track over how many times I cried while listening to this audiobook. I swore I would never return to it, never finish it. But still I couldn't leave it, I had to finish it. I just had to know how Ally's story would end.

And by doing so I was introduced to the next book in this series, Star's story "The Shadow Sister". And still, I got the feeling of hidden secrets..

Being Norwegian this story touched me even more. I have off course heard of Edvard Grieg, Peer Gynt and so. But my knowledge of this is nothing to brag about. Listening to this audiobook made me want to explore more of my home country, our history and music. And I also got a new thing to put on my bucket list: To visit Troldhaugen in Bergen

A quick listen and as always, La Petite Mort and Ruby Rivers does a great job with the narrating. Not completely sold on the British accent though ;)

Story wise, it's short and steamy and by the way it ended I do hope for a sequel
