Selena Harper loves her job on a cruiseship however lately she feels likes something is missing in her life. So she's happy to go on a vacation and to get away from men like her coworker Alekos. Selena can't understand why Alekos, who looks like a Greek god, is always flirting with her and asking her out on a date. She mistrusts him too much to take him seriously because she thinks that he is a womaniser.
But when her own vacation plans are cancelled and Alekos needs help with running his brother's business on Crete, Selena agreess to help him out. Suprisingly her stay on Crete is beautiful and the more time she spends with Alekos the more she starts to like him.
Will Selena give her feelings and Alekos a chance?
"Out of the blue" was a spontaneous purchase because I was in the mood for a happy summer book and this book looked & sounded like one. My first impression of this book was definitely the right one because "Out of the blue" brought me a lot of fun, laughter and happy moments.
The book plays on Crete and the author did an amazing job with describing the scenery and the people there. I could feel the warmth and sun on my skin while reading and loved the relaxed atmosphere. When I finished the book I was in the mood to plan a trip to this island asap because the author described it so wonderfully.
This was my first book by Belinda Jones and her writing style managed to engage and entertain me right from the first pages on. I knew pretty soon after starting the book that I would have a lot of fun with it. For one thing because of the author's engaging writing style, for another thing because of the two main characters Selena and Alekos. I loved reading about them and to witness how their relationship changed to something beautiful was so wonderful.
I liked that Selena and Aleko's relationship changed slowly and that she was a bit stubborn at times. She had some bad experiences with men in the past so it was logical that she mistrusted Aleko's intentions at first. I loved how they got closer while staying on Crete and that they had the time to learn more about each other. Towards the end of the book Alekos did something stupid and I nearly screamed at him in that moment, but I managed to get over this mistake and at the end of the book was truly happy with the ending and especially the wonderful epilogue.
"Out of the blue" makes me excited to read more by Belinda Jones because I love light-hearted, relaxed, funny, sunny and beautiful romances.
I like the cover because it's bright, looks sunny and fits to the book.
"Out of the blue" is a happy book that made me laugh, smile and swoon a lot. When I finished the book I felt relaxed, satisfied and excited to read more by Belinda Jones.
I would recommend this book to all readers who are looking for a light-hearted and happy romance.
