*Spoiler Alert*


I have to say I have thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It’s a lighthearted, funny, and romantic book. It had a great amount of drama and suspense, and although I kind of assumed how this book was going to end from the beginning that didn’t stop me from enjoying it.

As readers we saw the growth of both Alice and Robinson. What was meant to be a brief summer romance and a healing process for both of them, actually turned out to be something much more! The neighbours of Borne also added that perfect added touch to book. Stewie giving us humour, Hazel unleashing the quirk and Niamh as a great best friend to Alice, they all completed the book perfectly.

It really was a great book to read… Highly recommended for some fun, loveable, humour!


I loved this book! I totally related to Alice from the beginning, it was funny, tense, cheesy and predictable, exactly what you want from a summer beach read. I loved it. I think the neighbours were actually more interesting than the main characters and added the humour and lightness that made this book so good. I have no criticism of this book, its a great, well written, example of this genre and who doesn’t love a cheesy chick lit read, right? I will say that I’m not a fan of the more erm.. mucky bits of books, I get that they will always crop up in adults books, it’s a part of life and all that, but it makes me feel a bit uncomfortable when they are quite graphic and in this book I had to skip through a few pages about 4 or 5 times as it was a bit close for me. This is just my personal preference and it didn’t take anything away from the book for me, it was just something I was aware of. If you like a bit of saucy stuff, you’ll love it I’m  guessing, lol!
