Oh, my god! Seriously it looked like the book took me to Italy itself. It was so amazing…

When I started this book, I didn’t know it was a spin off story to the summer games. Georgie’s the sister of Olympics winner Fredrick Archibald… I didn’t know that at first but when there was a conversation between Freddi and Georgie I recall Georgie in Settling the Score – The Summer Games

Georgie was fed up of Her mom’s match making skills so to avoid her and her match making victims she came to Italy. Her main motive was sun bathing, eating lots of gelatos and to fall in love with a hot Italian man and marry him to sunset. (looks like a fairy tale)

The thing you want to know about Georgie is she doesn’t back down so when she lands in Vernazza and small town in Italy she made her way towards Gianluca’s heart. Georgie is full of life and fun. You’ll have fun reading her.

I’D SEEN MOVIES; I knew this was just what the gritty underbelly of the European sex trade must look like. I’d woken up disoriented in a dusty room. Very little light passed through the boarded-up windows and the stench of mildew hung in the air.

I’d known it was bound to happen eventually. My mother had given me great bone structure, and growing up with naff brothers had forced me to cultivate a fantastic (and apparently, highly abductable) personality. I supposed that even with the smell of sick clinging to me, my raw sexual aura had shone through, and now rogue sheikhs and warlords were in the other room trying to outbid one another for me. To save myself, I’d need to somehow dampen my agreeable nature during auction.

Voices sounded out in the hallway, hushed tones I strained to hear. I tried to sit up and then groaned at the effort. They’d likely already put something in my system, possibly via poison dart on the train. I wasn’t tied down or anything, so they’d have taken chemical precautions to ensure I didn’t run away.

And my God! How was her first impression of the town. She often has motion sickness and that’s how her first impression of town was.

It was blue in every direction, different hues painted across the landscape as far as my eyes could see. A cloudless sky met crystal clear waters. Angry waves crashed against the shore, spilling white sea foam over massive granite rocks that had tumbled down from the mountains over the centuries. I pressed my hands to the glass, leaned forward, and gasped, nearly lost in the beauty of it, right before another bout of motion sickness overtook me.

Oh bloody hell.

“Mom! The crazy lady just threw up on me!”

Gianluca has baggage, and I mean lot and lot of baggage and he has. A wall build up around his heart and house so he doesn’t get hurt again literally and figuratively. But Georgie is Georgie she made her way through him through the most important thing to him, the bed and breakfast his grandmother gave him.

Even when working together Gianluca mostly ignore her but she always carried on her one ways conversations. I love how fun Georgie was and her one-sided convoys.

“Why do you insist on wearing those overalls?”

She looked like an overgrown toddler in them.

She grinned and patted her hips. “They’ve got loads of pockets. I stuff candy in them in the morning.”

I didn’t reply, which I knew infuriated her.

“Do you want to know why I stuff candy in my pockets in the mornings?”

“You fancy a bit of diabetes?”

“It’s a reward system. Every time I get you to talk, I reward myself with a piece of chocolate.”

Surly they were working together so they kind of become friends and after a long time it seems like Gianluca has finally opened up to someone though as a friend!

Obviously, Georgia was looking man of her dreams whom she had her HEA with and the attractions between the two was was so much to ignore. But looks little Georgie already has given her heart to Gianluca so will she able to do the casual things he suggested or will be things messed up??!

Georgie is seriously now my favourite character. She was so much fun and I laugh with her and cried with her.

This is the final book in wrong series by Jana Aston. And I am so freaking sad to let all the character go.

This book is about Chloe, Everly’s friend and Boyd, Sophie’s brother. Like I said in Fling – nobody is more awkward than Chloe. Like all three books (including the novella) can be read as standalone. I would highly recommend to read all these books before reading Trust as the prior characters plays a huge role in this book.

Chloe is socially awkward, so when she is nervous around someone she is trying to date she usually goes with the second grader jokes. And she is a second-grade teacher which doesn’t help her situation any more.

“Yeah.” We sit in silence for a moment and then, “Hey, do you want to hear a joke?” Say no. Stop speaking, Chloe.

“Sure.”

“Why did the banana go to the doctor?” Yup. I’m telling second-grade jokes.

“Why?”

“Because it wasn’t peeling well!”

Joe nods and does a fake laugh. So I continue, like an idiot. “Wait, I’ve got a better one,” I blurt out. “Why did the jellybean go to school?”

“Why?”

“He wanted to become a Smartie!”

Chloe is strangely attracted to crime series and safety measures but still she ends up in investing room on her second date with the hot shot detective Gallagher investigating her.

“You’re a cop?” I spit out, stunned. I’m suddenly getting a sick feeling this has nothing to do with Cal choking on a cheesesteak.

“No, I’m a federal agent. Your name?” he repeats, pen poised over a notepad.

“Chloe Scott.”

“Miss Scott, you have the tickets?” he asks, jotting my name down onto the pad. It’s regular-sized. Not one of those tiny spiral ones that fit into a pocket like you see on TV. How will he get these notes back to his office? I’m not sure why this fascinates me in this moment, but it does.

“Are you going to handcuff me?” I blurt. Why did I just ask him that? I don’t even see any handcuffs.

“No.” He tilts his head to the side, as if considering it. “Did you want me to?” he asks slowly, eyeing me. I can see a hint of a dimple in his cheek and the skin around his eyes creases as he stares at me. He’s amused.

Well now that was awkward.

Boyd is quit intrigue with her awkwardness and her ability to ruin the date. So, he offers her a copping method and ask her to attend a cousins wedding so that she can practice what’s it’s like to be on a date. Boyd, if you ask me he was very very alpha compared to the other guys Jana has written about.

Boyd’s cocky. And hot. And kinda nice, even though he’s cocky. I’d be a nervous wreck around him if I’d met him on a dating site. Not that we’re dating.

It was a rom-com book but with everything you want to read about. Jana has portrayed every element – humor, love, friendship, angst so wonderfully that you won’t be able to keep the book down.

Now let’s talk about the sex part. If you are wishing to read something extremely hot in the first few chapters you will be disappointed as the intimacy comes after half the book but that doesn’t mean the book is boring or cold. As the humours and her awkwardness will let you read further and further until you completely finish it…

And you will certainly love it if you enjoy the prior three books.
