Smitten by the Brit by Melonie Johnson

A review copy of this book was provided by St. Martin’s Press in exchange for an honest review.

Earlier this year I read, and thoroughly enjoyed, the first book in the Sometimes in Love Series, Getting Hot with the Scot as an early review copy. Since finishing it, I was counting down until I could read the sequel, Smitten by the Brit. I’m happy say that this book lived up to my excitement and expectations (though it was predictable), and was even better than Getting Hot with the Scot.


English professor Bonnie Blythe expects her life to play out like her favorite novels, especially now that her long-term boyfriend has finally proposed. So when a shocking discovery leads Bonnie to end her engagement, she decides to close the book on love. But the plot thickens when a brand-new character enters the scene—and quickens Bonnie’s heart.

With his brilliant blue eyes, sexy accent, and irresistible charm, Theo Wharton is like a romantic hero straight out of a Jane Austen novel. When fate places Bonnie in England for a summer—conveniently close to Theo—she realizes a hot friends-with-benefits fling is exactly what she needs to start a fresh chapter. Just as Bonnie begins to believe she’s falling in love, an eye-opening revelation into Theo’s life makes Bonnie feel like she’s wandered into one of her favorite books. Will Bonnie have the courage to risk her heart and turn the page with the dashing Brit to find her true happy ending after all?
