I really enjoyed this book; I liked the fun, sassy relationship between Francis and Caddock. The conversations were 100% entertaining and appealing; the sex scenes were nice but not super steamy. I liked the gossipy little town and Francis's gran. I see that some people do not like all the British-isms. Wow. Then don't read a book by a British author. I enjoy that aspect because it's different than what I normally hear and it just sounds so charming.
This is an author I would certainly read more of.
I want to call attention to Caddock's nickname for Francis. When I first read the name (Cub) I just couldn't understand how Caddock came up with it. After all this wasn't a paranormal story. It took place in the real world that is today's Britain. It's too bad that other reviewers didn't look up Cub in the Kindle dictionary. If they had Francis's nickname would have made sense. The definition is as follows: Archaic: a young man especially one who is awkward or ill-mannered. This fits Francis to a "T". He was uncomfortable in and around crowds. I loved the juxtaposition Francis had being around women. "What was Francis supposed to do with a woman? They had weird jiggly bits. It was all rather terrifying." I really enjoyed the British terminology and was thankful for the glossary at the beginning of the book. It cleared up a lot of the language used and American readers should remember that the plot does take place in England. The people of Looe where Caddock set up his pub were an open lot and accepted these two lovers wonderfully.
Caddock and Francis are instantly stuck on each other, and what is surprising is that the ex-rugby superstar is the one who is so completely besotted that he is the dominant force all around. Francis, while a wonderful character, is somewhat subjugated to Caddock's overwhelming insta-love, and it works, works, works!
That Caddock has an exceptionally adorable four-year-old nephew in Devlin, left to him by his deceased widowed brother, and Francis has his exceptional care dog Sherlock and his wonderful Gran to keep him on keel, is helpful and comforting.
Not that there aren't some heinous things along the way, but this one left me feeling comfortable in the protective hands of Caddock and the people of Looe, who are the weirdest bunch of busy bodies and loving souls you are likely to find in Cornwall.
So sweet my teeth ached, but in a way that biscuits and custard tarts could cure.
