Blurb:

Cassie Crow, a pop-culture reporter for a TV talk show, is focused on becoming a “serious” journalist. But when she stumbles into a kilted Highlander with a killer accent, Cassie decides that taking one night off from work and spending it with a sexy Scot couldn’t hurt. . .

Logan Reid has built a career on his charm, hosting a series of off-the-wall hijinks on the Web. But when the Scottish prankster meets the all-American, equal parts intelligent and irresistible Cassie, Logan realizes that one night of fun won’t be enough. Could it be that this career-focused, commitment-phobic couple is finally ready to take a chance at true and lasting love?

 

Povzetek iz zadnje strani:

Cassie Crow, novinarka pop kulture v pogovorni oddaji na televiziji, želi postati ”resna” novinarka. Toda ko potoma odkrije Višavca, oblečenega v kilt, z ubijalskim naglasom, se odloči, da ji ena noč z njim ne bo škodila. . .

Logan Reid je svojo kariero zgradil na svojem šarmu, kot voditelj smešnic na internetu, Toda ko škotski komik spozna Američanko, inteligentno in neverjetno Cassie, Logan spozna, da ena noč ne bo dovolj. Ali je lahko ta na-kariero-osredotočen, izogibajoč-se-resni-zvezi par pripravljen dati možnost resnični ljubezni?

 

My thoughts:

Have I ever told you how I love historical Highland romances? No? Well, now you know. So, of course, I was interested when I read the blurb. A book that includes a kilted Scot in the modern times? I mean, sign me up or something.

The first chapter basically sucked me in. It was just so good. The ending of that chapter made me excited. It promised fun. And it delivered, big time!

I was laughing during reading and that happens rarely.

Cassie is like me a sucker for historical romances and of course, when she first sees a dishevelled Scot who looks lost she thought she can’t be that lucky. And because she had only one mission on her holiday – to have a foreign fling – she thought, why not. Now imagine her surprise when seconds later after a scorching kiss she realizes the man she kissed is no other than the guy who is hosting a web sensation called Shenanigans in which he pranks famous (and not that famous) people. What follows is a hilarious story of cat and mouse which then led to HEA.

I can’t tell much because I’m afraid I’ll spoil the book but if I got you just a little bit curious then I suggest you buy this book as soon as it is out.

If I still didn’t persuade you, maybe this will: I loved this book so much I had to request an ARC of the second book. Luckily, I got it and I started reading it the minute I was done with this book. A truly wonderful book for a debut author (I was so surprised when I learned that but at the same time also relieved that I don’t have a lot to catch up 😉 ).

5 stars of course.

Mark your calendars: The book is out at the end of April 2019!

 

A small note for the ending: It did bother me that it was not that clear when one POV started and when it ended but since this was an ARC, I’m sure all this will be corrected until the release.

 

ARC provided via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

 

Moje misli:

Sem že kdaj omenila, da obožujem zgodovinske romane, ki se dogajajo v Višavju? Ne? No, zdaj veš. Zato je logično, da me je povzetek iz zadnje strani takoj prevzel. Knjiga, ki vsebuje Škota, oblečenega v kilt, pa da se dogaja v sedanjosti? Štej me zraven ali nekaj podobnega 😉

Že od prvega poglavja me je zgodba posrkala vase. Bilo je res odlično poglavje. Že konec poglavja je obljubljal dobro zgodbo. In res je bila!

Že po prvih nekaj straneh sem se smejala in to se redko zgodi.

Cassie tako kot jaz obožuje zgodovinske romane in seveda, ko zagleda skuštranega in zmedenega kota v neki sobi v gradu, si je mislila, da že en more imeti take sreče. In ker je šla na počitnice le z enim namenom – imeti avanturo za eno noč – si je mislila, zakaj pa ne? Predstavljaj si njeno presenečenje, ko odkrije, da moški, katerega je ravnokar vroče poljubila, ni nihče drug kot človek, ki je voditelj svojega lastnega šova v katerem se s skrito kamero loti slavnih (in ne tako slavnih) ljudi in da se je sama znašla prav v eni izmed njegovih potegavščin! Kar sledi, je zabavna igra mačke in miši, ki na koncu vodi do srečnega konca.

Veliko ne smem povedati, ker bom pokvarila celotno bistvo knjige, ampak upam, da sem te prepričala že s povedanim, da to knjigo preprosto moraš kupiti.

Če pa te še nisem prepričala pa imej v mislih to: Ta knjiga mi je bila tako všeč, da sem zaprosila za ARC še druge knjige. Na srečo je bila moja prošnja uslišana tako da sem z branjem le-te začela takoj, ko sem končala s tole, prvo knjigo. Res super prvenec (in glede tega sem bila resnično presenečena, po drugi strani pa mi je odleglo, da nimam veliko za nadoknaditi, tako da bom avtoričinim delom sledila od sedaj naprej 😉 ).

5 zvezdic, seveda.

Ne pozabi si označiti na koledarju: Knjiga izide konec aprila prihodnje leto!

 

Majhna opazka za konec: Kar me je motilo pri knjigi, je bilo le to, da se ni videlo, kdaj pripoveduje Logan in kdaj Cassie, ampak glede na to, da gre za ARC in da je do uradnega izida še malce manj kot pol leta, sem prepričana, da bo tudi to odpravljeno.

 

ARC (Knjiga, ki jo bralci v roke dobimo pred njeno izdajo) je bila zagotovljena preko spletne strani NetGalley v zameno za iskreno oceno. Knjigo sem prebrala in ocenila prostovoljno. Vse misli in mnenja so izključno moja.
