It is truth universally acknowledged, that a single woman in possession of a dead-end job, shoebox studio apartment, and zany, intensely loyal friends, must be in want of a man.
But in my wildest dreams, I never expected that man to remember me selling overpriced KoolAid in my Rainbow Brite underpants when I was six years old. Life is unpredictable.
Fraser Drake was the least sexy boy when we were growing up: all elbows and knees and khaki pleats and debate club. But right now, in my mother's kitchen, he's never looked hotter, more irresistible. Granted, he's looking down on me as I expertly dance the sock hop scene from Grease. But behind those layers of haughty indifference, I detect the hint of lust.
He is everything I never knew I wanted. Since I met him, my feet haven't touched the ground and my smile hasn't left my face. His laugh is like a well-aged scotch, and I have a feeling I could get drunk on it.
If a Pride and Prejudice/Bridget Jones’s Diary mash-up but with more sex, sexual tension, and sexy sex, sounds good to you, you've come to the right place.
Fraser was looking like a granite block of control before; at my words, he’s still got that chiseled expression, but it’s wonderful to see the light come back into his eyes. The hot, sexy light smoldering in those (warm, brown) eyes that are set in that (handsome, sculpted, take-me-now) face is enough to melt any woman’s heart. And panties.
“Thank you.” He gathers me against him, and kisses me. The first brush of lips is a quick reassurance, almost sweet. Then, the second time, it becomes deeper and slower. The heat turns up as he gathers a fistful of my hair, pulling my head back. I gasp, grazing his lower lip with my teeth. His whole body vibrates with that. We kiss again, falling deeper and deeper into each other. I start pulling at his tie, and have it off in seconds. He slides out of his jacket, which falls to the floor. Don’t worry, all my sweatpants and discarded bras will keep it company.
I really should clean up more. But not right now. Right now, sex is all I can think about, and clothes just get in the way of sex. It’s math.
Fraser stills as I unbutton his shirt, giving myself a glimpse of that rock hard, sculpted physique that I find I happily can’t get enough of. I’m like Pavlov’s dog now: whenever someone takes a shirt off, I start drooling.
I had to try to curb that last time Fraser and I had sex. It almost got awkward.
With my help, Fraser strips off his dastardly shirt in a matter of seconds. I shiver as my fingers play up the contours of his abs, his chest. I trail my touch down the steel and silk muscles of his arms. Holy shit, this man must work out a ton.
And to that I say: huzzah.
“I’m feeling a bit more exposed than you,” Fraser whispers in my ear, kissing down my neck. In a flash, he helps pull my shirt over my head, and a second later, I slide out of my work skirt. Now in only bra and panties, I gasp as Fraser picks me up. My legs straddle his waist as he carries me to the bed, and lays me down…on top of more crinkling cellophane.
“How many Doritos do you consume in a week?” His eyes stay molten as he says it, the desire in his voice never losing its edge. Apparently snacking is the most erotic thing on the planet. Lucky, lucky me.
“Some of these are Fritos,” I whisper back.
   REVIEW   5 “English” Stars

I have such a big girl crush on Emma. She’s probably the best heroine I’ve read this year. And Fraser with his broody, English ways was yummy-liscious. Ms. Poppy Dunne is back with a bang reminding me just how much I love her rom coms, her characters and her writing. 

Emma is the perennial middle child. She quirky, a bit silly, and kind of looked over. With her mother always on her about being a spinster, her brother with his American Dream family and her younger sister the light of everyone’s eyes, Emma has always kind of done her own thing. Running into her brother’s old childhood friend was never on her radar. She wanted nothing to do with him when they were children but there are quite a few things different about Fraser these days. And she can’t help but find herself desiring more than a friendly hello at family functions. 

Fraser left the United States for London during the last year of high school. He’s grown up, changed, become mega rich but very closed off. The last thing he needs is the flies-by-the-seat-of-her-pants Emma popping up into his life though he’s drawn to her in a way he doesn’t want. Yet Fraser is as closed off as they come. Letting Emma wiggle her way into his life is the last thing he needs. Funny how the things you least expect have the greatest impact. These two opposite find something in each other that they’ve never found before. But they have to let it mature before it all comes spiraling out of control. 

This book was full of wit and slow burning steam. With a bit of mystery surrounding Fraser, I was unable to put this book down. Plus Emma is seriously delightful. She’s someone I would love to be best friends with. And we cannot forget Ms. Dunne’s writing. It’s fantastic. She knows her characters, she makes them honest and fresh and I cannot get enough. I’m already excited for whatever she decides to write next.
