Publisher's Summary

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.

Oh My Liam Neeson, I've Been Taken

Georgie is a most delightful person and her crazy antics kept me in stitches. Every time she found herself in an untenable situation, which was often cause she is a nutty mess, she used her spunk, wit and determination to make positive changes. It's great that she's so tenacious because that personality trait is definitely needed to deal with Gianluca, who after 5 years is still grieving his late wife. Georgie quickly makes friends while on her new adventure and with their help she eventually wears Gianluca down until he finds her charming and irresistible. Can Georgie turn a vacation fling into a lifelong love? If she can that would certainly appease her mother.

I love the narrators and their abilities to fluidly change from a British to an Italian accent. The flow was very natural and kept me listening intensely until the very end.

Absolutely worth a credit.

A beautiful, sweet story

This is one of the sweetest stories I've ever listened to. The feistiness and determination of Georgie to mend a broken Gianluca was heartwarming, funny and all encompassing. I started listening to the book around 7 pm, and had to break (reluctantly) to make dinner and do some work. I finally had to go to sleep - around 4am, finally finishing it in the morning. It was almost painful to put it down.

Victoria Aston was incredible. Her performance, accents and ability to bring Georgie to life made me feel as if she were a friend of mine. Roger Frisk has a beautiful voice but could really work on his accents with regards to Gianluca and other characters with Italian accents. Still, he gave appropriate emotion to Gianluca's broken heart and inability to let the past go.

R. S. Grey's writing is incomparable. A wonderful telling of a truly beautiful story.
