Wendy's Review of Lost In Scotland by Hilaria Alexander


Just when you think you're lost, you might end up falling in love.

Sam Farouk is having a bad year. Things have gone down the drain ever since she found her boyfriend cheating on her at the Golden Globes. An unfortunate turn of events forces her to trade sunny Los Angeles with the rainy, chilly highlands of Scotland. She has the chance to work as one of the makeup artists on a new TV series based on a fantasy saga everyone is bananas about, but she can’t help feeling lost and a little bit homesick. Until she starts falling for Hugh MacLeod, the actor set to impersonate the titular role of Abarath, dragon slayer and part-time Casanova.
Hugh MacLeod is ready for his big break. After more than a decade taking every possible acting job just to stay afloat, he can finally show his range in a series to be proud of. Hugh’s commitment to his career comes before anything else, and that’s part of the reason why he hasn’t had a serious relationship in a while. But the more he’s around Sam, the more he knows he’s in deep, deep trouble. How is he supposed to not fall for the sexy, mysterious brunette who works all over him every single day? Every touch, every look is torture.
Getting lost in each other might be wrong, but it could end up being just what they need.



4.5 stars 
This might be my favorite read from Hilaria. I loved everything about this book from the characters to the storyline to the writing. 

Sam is looking to start over after some love drama happened back home in the US. So she accepts a job as a makeup artist on a tv show in Scotland. She is hoping that this will help her career and help her with herself. Hugh is the lead actor on this tv show. He is hoping that this will finally be his big break into the industry. What neither expected was the other. What will happen when these two interact day in and day out? 

I couldn’t get enough of this book. I was sucked in from the first page. This book was about Hugh and Sam’s relationship and how it would all play out. No major drama or craziness to make it over the top. Just an honest romance and I loved it. I liked how Hilaria built up the connection between Hugh and Sam. They started out as friends and as the story progressed so did their feelings. Hugh and Sam had such a great rapport. Their interactions and banter were fantastic. I was smiling and swoony whenever I read them together. I also loved the supporting characters-they really added that extra jazz to the story. The book had a nice flow to it-Hilaria paced this story well. It was an easy and lighthearted read that will get to you.
