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.

3 stars 

Tired of dealing with the craziness at home, Georgie decides to go on trip to Italy. She is hoping to explore and to make some progress on a certain aspect in her life. While on her extended vacation, she meets Gianluca. Gianluca has been down for some time and has been coasting through life. When he meets Georgie, she definitely brings some spunk into his life. What will happen between these two and how will it affect them? 

Georgie and Gianluca had an interesting start to their budding interaction. It wasn’t smooth sailing but it definitely made the story intriguing. The banter was great and there was some definite funny moments. However, as the story progressed so did their relationship. They went from enemies to friends to something both weren’t sure how to define it. I liked the easiness that Georgie and Gianluca had in their friendship. They bounced great off each other. But Gianluca was harboring a heartbreak so of course it wouldn’t be that easy. I was interested to see how each of them handled that particular situation and how the story would go from there. Though there were some good moments, I couldn’t quite connect fully with the story. I think I just wanted more in certain aspects of the story. But still, the characters and writing were good. And I really liked that light and warmhearted feeling I had while reading. Overall, a nice easy going read.

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.
