After his high-profile ex-girlfriend starts spreading falsehoods about Greyson that could hurt his career, both he and Claire get roped into a fake dating scheme in an attempt to help Greyson’s public image. What starts off as a wary, tentative arrangement quickly turns into something more.
I really loved these two. Claire had a great voice; she’s relatable, and her inner monologue was hilarious. I especially loved the creative (very British) expletives and alternatives. I’ve always had celebrity crushes and imagined what it would be like to date this actor or that singer, so this book appealed to me on that level, but it was more than that. Without being full of angst like a lot of books with a similar premise, it was a relatable story about two people who had reservations and made mistakes, but grew separately and together. Because Claire and Greyson seemed so real, it made them easy to root for.
I think one of the things that made this book so unique is the fact Claire is British, when usually these types of books feature American girls, who often view celebrities differently. I’ve heard countless times that Brits don’t get as star-struck as North Americans do (like, for instance, I know I’d make a complete fool of myself if I even met a celebrity crush, let alone got to date them...there would likely be tears and babbling and redder-than-a-tomato blushing). A lot of Brits are like *oh there’s Benedict Cumberbatch on the tube, no big deal* or *I just passed Tom Hiddleston walking down the street, how cool* whereas North American girls would be more likely to do a scream-faint-stalk combo. So I loved that while Claire had her moments of fangirling and being awe-struck by Greyson, she wasn’t the fall-all-over-yourself fangirl. Also, a lot of ‘real person dates a celeb’ stories have endless drama and ‘but other girls are so much prettier, why would he date me?’ and constant thoughts about the celebrity’s status. There was very little of that in A Brit Unexpected, which was refreshing.
A Brit Unexpected is an absolute delight. Fast-paced, funny, and sexy, this book is a refreshing change from the norm. It’ll definitely be one I recommend often to people looking for a well-written, engaging romantic comedy.
A Brit Unexpected feels like a glimpse into the beginning of a happily ever after. In the real world of Hollywood romances, there are ups and downs that make it hard. This book explores the raw uncertainty and hesitation two people can have in a new relationship. There is second guessing and frustration but the good times seem to outweigh the bad. These two click, allowing each other a safe place to see life in a fresh way. I love their chemistry and banter, something that livens their story.
I appreciated how Brown takes this love story and creates a book that is fresh with a hint of vulnerability. She creates and environment for her two leads to find love and a safe place from the chaos of life. Nothing is perfect but it gives the reader hope that there are many more good times to come. Claire is a female lead that people will relate to; a woman that is both confident and wounded from what she has been through. Her fears and hesitation allows her authenticity to relate to the reader, giving this book an edge. Greyson adds a sense of appeal that draws you in and once he reveals a softer, real side, you want what is best for him; and that is Claire.
This book is a wonderful combination of fairytale and hopeful realism. There is a constant tug and pull between both sides until these two find a place that is comfortable to be in. I am excited for more of the Castle Calder series and hope to see much more of these two in the future! I need more of their story and happily ever after.
