Smitten by the Brit by Melonie Johnson


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. When fate places Bonnie in England for a summer—conveniently close to Theo—she realizes a hot friends-with-benefits fling is exactly what she needs to start a fresh chapter. Just as Bonnie begins to believe she's falling in love, an eye-opening revelation into Theo's life makes Bonnie feel like she's wandered into one of her favorite books. Will Bonnie have the courage to risk her heart and turn the page with the dashing Brit to find her true happy ending after all?

Mary Jo☆☆☆☆
This book was a lot cuter than I thought it would be. We see plenty of Cassie and Jaime from the first book, but this book is truly about Theo and Bonnie.

They take the long way around to get to the romance but when they do, it is explosive. I have to admit that Theo's mom is a bit of work and I'm sad that Bonnie didn't confront her in front of everyone.

True love prevails, but the devil is in the details.

This is the second book in the series – and I would recommend that you read book one first as it sets the scene for this lovely romance. We also get to catch up with the duo from that story, which was fun too.

Bonnie behaved herself impeccably whilst in London, even though her attraction to Logan's friend, Theo, was pretty overwhelming. But her fiancé, Gabe, was back home, and having known him since she was six, she had no intention of derailing her plans. Now life is back to normal in Chicago, and she is looking forward to Gabe finishing his PhD and them finally getting married. Seeing Theo again at an event with Logan and Cassie reminds her that she should be at home with Gabe. Sadly, this early evening results in her discovering that Gabe is not the man she believed. Feeling that she has lost all that she had held dear, she escapes to a hotel.

Cue Theo, a man who is hiding his true identity and who knows that he has to marry wisely to keep the family seat, staying in the very same hotel as Bonnie, and seeing her revives all those feelings again. And so starts a rebound affair, with no intention of permanence – or at least that is what they both tell themselves. Obviously, we know that the challenges thrown in front of them will somehow be cast aside, although the solution comes from a very unexpected quarter.

Great addition to the series, and I am already waiting for the next installment!
