Sofia is visiting her mums friends daughters in London, but they aren't like Sofia who is down to earth and they also live in the posh part of London. Sofia trying to fit it puts on a post accent and here she meets Nathan, Nathan despises the socialites that frequent the bar as they think they own him. It really is a case of when two worlds collide with Sofia, Tori and Christie.
In Tori and Christie's favourite bar Sofia meets the hot bar man Nathan, he mistakes Sofia for one of the usually Chelsea princesses, Nathan can't help but be drawn to Sofia.
I loved the flirting between Sofia and Nathan and this story is really lovely. They both have the hots for each other but neither will take the step forward. This is a another short fun read that can easily be devoured within an hour. This book is one of my favourites in the #LoveLondon series.
Sofia is up in London for the weekend to meet up with two old friends, one of whom she really isn't very fond of. They come from very different worlds. Sofia is living in Bournemouth and isn't really into glamour and glitz, unlike the other two who make it their aim to transform Sofia for the weekend.
They glam up and head off to a local bar, much to Sofia's dismay. But then she sets eyes on Nathan, the barman. He is hot hot hot and it became clear really quickly that there was more than a spark between them. But will that spark explode into a full on flame? I can't reveal!!
I enjoyed this latest installment in the #LoveLondon series and Nicki Moore has once again created characters that came to life easily for me. I liked Sofia, she was down to earth and had no interest in being just another girl interested in glamming up and being seen in hotspots. Because I liked her I wanted her to stand up to her friends, and also really go for it with Nathan. This kept me turning the pages to see what would happen.
I of course liked Nathan. It took me back to my teenage years of watching Tom Cruise in Cocktail and imagining being wooed by a hot barman (it never happened and I'm far too old now!). He was my guilty pleasure in the story and I was willing to see Sofia live out my wish!
Do download this and give it a read to brighten up a boring journey, or to add some spice to a quiet moment.
Thanks to Harperimpulse who kindly provided a copy in return for an honest review.
Sofia is a heroine I got an instant girl-crush on. She's just so cool. She’s not a girly-girl, she’s surfer/skater chick who’s more comfortable being ‘one of the lads’ than trying to hook one of them. Oh, and probably has the most unique job a romcom heroine has ever been treated to! Nathan is a brilliant hero – a hardworking, gorgeous guy with a bit of a chip on his shoulder when it comes to the rich-bitch Chelsea girls he usually has to deal with. Put the two together and the sparks really start to fly.
Nikki Moore is the champagne-cocktail of authors, delicious, bubbly and light – and will keep you coming back for more.
This short story will have you smiling and sighing in no time- and is full of a beautiful, spring-time hopefulness.
The lead character in this book Sofia, is staying with old childhood friends and biting her tongue because of their mothers - Sofia could live without Tori and Christie in her life but their mothers are close friends so she literally 'grins and bears it'.
The girls couldn't be more different, Tori and Christie are the WAG equivalent of Chelsea whist Sofia is a tomboy from Bournemouth - more comfortable in jeans and comfy boots than skimpy dresses and tottering heels.
She and the girls hit the cocktail bars on the Kings Road with Sofia having to look and act the part. Here's where Nikki Moore's descriptive skills really kick in - everything about sisters Tori and Christie scream rich, spoilt brats, whilst everything about Sofia screams discomfort, she's like a fish out of water.
Add Nathan to the mix and we've got hormones flying everywhere, he is a cocktail waiter in the bar and the chemistry between him and Sofia is instant and palpable - although the charade they are both playing is like a brick wall between them. Sofia is drawn to him and he to her - yet he doesn't give an inch, Sofia is everything he despises in a woman, rich, spoilt, selfish and arrogant so despite the odd spark he is staying off limits.
Nikki reveals the true characters and feelings bit by bit - making Sofia in particular look at herself and as ever delivers a very clear message. If you aren't comfortable in your own skin, if you are pretending to be someone you're not - your true character will not come across.Read more ›
