American lass seeks brawny Scot...
As if being newly single isn't brutal enough, Sloane Chatfield's friends are getting obnoxious about setting her up. When Sloane insists she's waiting for a certain sexy fictional Highlander to come along, her friends surprise her with a trip to Scotland to find her a new boyfriend. She'd rather have a root canal. But if she can find a Highland hunk to "break her heart" before her friends arrive...
In a remote Highland village, Galen Buchanan is struggling to keep the family pub afloat. Everything is falling apart, he's running out of money, and now there's an opinionated American lass parked at his best table, driving him mad. But then Sloane asks Galen to be her pretend Highland boyfriend...and offers him enough money to save the pub. It's only for a few days, he figures. What's the worst that could happen?
Review - 5 Stars
I'm going to be honest, I was having Jamie Fraser withdrawals, since Outlander was over for the season. So when this book popped up and it was about woman going to Scotland. I was sold!
This was actually quite funny. Sloane goes to Scotland because her friends believe she needs a man. Even though she's mending a broken heart. There she meets Galen, who runs the pub in town. Her friends are coming to Scotland, sooner than expected. So she decides to make the perfect bargain, with a sexy Scottish man.
Well.. Galen is super dreamy. I wouldn't expect that Sloane wouldn't end up with feelings for him. Galen helped her realize something about herself. She deserves someone who is about her. Who wouldn't let her go. Stories like this I could read over and over. They make me dream. I wish I could of gotten more of their time. An in depth look, not that there wasn't any steaminess, lust, and romance. I'm just being greedy.
I did love this and I didn't want to stop reading. But I didn't want it to end. Galen and Sloane <3 there was humor and romance. I could imagine him saying "lass"... I enjoyed her writing, Such a fun read.
