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.
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.
Ah! This book! Besides the fact that this is probably one of my favorites by Rachel, it really made me want to just travel. Having seen photos of Vernazza through Rachel’s IG made it so much easier to really picture certain scenes and what it was like. From the very beginning Georgie had me laughing and Gianluca had me pining for him. The way they developed their relationship was the best way it could’ve happened and I’m glad with how it all played out. Except for the fact that I think it ended too fast, but either way I think this book has made it to my top favorites of Rachel’s (and I’ve read most of hers) and by far Georgie and Gianluca have become my favorite of her couples. I loved the characters in this book. Georgie and Gianluca couldn’t be any more different, but their differences are what made their characters stand out and really blend well. This story was the perfect blend of romance, comedy and wanderlust!
*ARC received in exchange for an honest review
I am a lover of books, chocolate, reality TV, black labs, and cold weather. Seriously, if I had it my way I would be curled up on the couch with all of those things… everyday.
I live in Texas where I spend my free time writing and reading. My favorite authors are Mindy Kaling & Jonathan Safran Foer. I’m a comedy geek and love all things “funny”. Women like Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Mindy Kaling are definitely the biggest inspirations for my writing, though I think my work tends to skew a bit smuttier than theirs.
