However, for reasons of his own, he would like to stay incognito during this most recent stay! Thus, the fiction of "Tom" is born. :)
Emily crafts an amazingly charming, quirky village, complete with unique characters and funny festivals. The delightfulness of journeying with Emily as this movie star hunk fantasy unfolds in the most unlikely bucolic place is so fun to imagine on so many levels. :) Journeying to this village alone, is a vacation of the mind in and of itself, and is well worth the price of admission.
Like other great authors, this is not a one-note novel. The underlying themes of what makes up true love, what is familial love and/or obligation/responsibility to family (however defined), and what one ultimately wants out of life, are well-thought-out and well-crafted.
This is a beautifully written #5Stars novel and you will enjoy your visit to Love On the Rocks. Hope there will be more visits to this wonderful village with future sequels!
Also: This book is highly recommended for fans of Hilary Grossman (Plan Bea & Plan Cee), Nicholas Sparks, Janet Elizabeth Henderson (Goody Two Shoes), Patience Griffin (To Scotland With Love), and those who enjoy a more insightful, yet imaginative read!
No major caveats except that it is tremendously poignant in places...bring your tissues! #5Stars.
One minor caveat, the first two sample chapters do not do this book justice! The story picks up the pace in an uproarious pub fashion once Tom appears on the screen! Enjoy this little gem from the beautiful Scottish cliffs!
If I had had more time I would have read this book in one sitting, I am sure of it. It's so hard to write a great review when you don't want to spoil anything! haha
So I have to start with saying how much I loved Whitehorse bay and Scotland has just made my list of places to visit in the near future.
Lexie, the MC, was my favourite type of character. Strong, tortured but sweet when she needs to be. Her child hood friend 'Tom' visits and because of his famous identity now, she agrees to help him blend in so nobody recognises him. They have instant chemistry and soon, Lexie finds herself supported by 'Tom''s words that she chase her dream of becoming a painter.
Of course, their love story gets many rode bumps in the way of Lexie's ex, who has been acting weird lately and hiding information from her. And we find that the two of them have unfinished business as well!
Emily wrote the love triangle perfectly, there was plenty of laughs and gasps (at least from me) as the story puddled into some surprising twists.
I was not expecting the heart wrenching moments that popped up, and they utterly griped me. I felt heartbroken at a scene or two, while wishing that Lexie ends up with my favourite, out of Jamie (her ex) or 'Tom'.
I would love to see this as a movie one day! Either on the television or big screen, it's the perfect Rom-Com.
Being stucked in from the prologue The author takes us to tiny Scottish village of Whitehorse Bay with stunning descriptions that made me feel right there in the village itself. We meet Lexy who I loved and could relate to having lost her parents seven years ago she is still struggling to move on.
Hottie Hollywood star Clay Gable soon crosses paths with Lexy she helps him blend into village life, while Clay encourages Lexy to leave her unfulfilling job and chase her dream of becoming a bona fide artist. Lexy’s ex, Jamie, is acting strangely and appears to have a secret from everyone.
Can Lexy help Jamie deal with his dark secret? And why is Clay Gable back in his childhood village?
Love On The Rocks will certainly make you Laugh Out Loud. And the author has done a brilliant job of making the characters come to life. This would make an excellent movie.
I was anxious to get to the end to find out what happens, with plenty going on and the author has tried everything up nicely at the end
The only downfall is that I am gutted that I have finished it!
This is a must read for fans of Paige Toon, Miranda Dickinson and Sophie Kinsella fans. I can not recommend it enough giving it 5 massive stars.
