The story was let down somewhat by an unnecessarily dramatic climax, which felt out of place and forced, but what came before it was strong enough to leave me with a stupid smile on my even stupider face.

Synopsis

A sharp-witted heroine and an infuriating-but-swoon-worthy leading man bring down the house in this utterly charming contemporary romance debut from Lucy Parker

This just in: romance takes center stage as West End theatre's Richard Troy steps out with none other than castmate Elaine Graham

Richard Troy used to be the hottest actor in London, but the only thing firing up lately is his temper. We all love to love a bad boy, but Richard's antics have made him Enemy Number One, breaking the hearts of fans across the city.

Have the tides turned? Has English rose Lainie Graham made him into a new man?

Sources say the mismatched pair has been spotted at multiple events, arm in arm and hip to hip. From fits of jealousy to longing looks and heated whispers, onlookers are stunned by this blooming romance.

Could the rumors be right? Could this unlikely romance be the real thing? Or are these gifted stage actors playing us all?

How much did I like this? The minute I finished reading it the first time – and yes, I’ve already read it twice – I went online looking for the author’s backlist. It was then that I discovered Ms. Parker is a debut author and has no backlist! Hopefully other romances will soon follow, as I can’t wait to see what Ms. Parker writes next.
