Being married to a celebrity isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, especially when that celebrity has a very public affair with his co-star…

Alice McBride is determined that the one thing she won’t lose in her marriage breakup is Borne Manor, her beloved home, but she gets more than she bargained for when she rents it out for the summer and a sexy cowboy comes to stay.

Country music star Robinson Duff has had his own share of heartbreak and needs somewhere quiet to hide out for the summer. Neither Alice nor Robinson are in any position for romance; the timing is terrible and they’re both rebounding like out of control frisbees.

Can a holiday romance help mend their broken hearts. Or will it just make things even worse when the long hot summer comes to its inevitable end?


The Review

I simply loved this book, its a story about heartbreak and finding love when you least expect it.
The story is about Alice, she is married to Brad a TV celebrity and after 5 years of marriage finds herself in the middle of an infidelity scandal. While Alice tries to come to terms with this new development she is also aware that she could lose her dream home as her soon to be ex-husband will no longer pay the mortgage. She that gets the idea to rent out the manor for 6 months to a very sexy cowboy while she tries to figure out what to do next.
What Alice didn’t expect was to develop an unlikely friendship with Robinson , they both know a rebound fling will go nowhere and that suits them both for the summer but what happens when the summer is over and everything they are running from come knocking on their door.
What did I think? This book was just soo amazing. It had just the right amount of everything in it. The story is set in the English countryside( I don’t fully remember where) which brought an easy atmosphere to the story. I really liked Alice as the lead character, she had a kind of strength that was hard to ignore. I liked her determination and her choosing to fight for what she loved.
Her neighbors were just the icing on the cake here. Stewie and Hazel were the best especially towards the end of the book. Niamh, was the kind of friend I need to have in my life, no wait I think I have one of those. But if you don’t have one like her, you need one! She was a great support system for Alice through the everything.
Then there is Robinson…… I loved everything about this dude. I liked how he just let Alice be who she wanted to be, supporting her and encouraging her. The book had quite a bit of steam and delayed gratification….. Let’s not speak about Brad because people like him exist everywhere.
Th pace of the book was really good, I really enjoyed the laugh out loud moments and cringe moments, I just wish I could start this book all over again.
