Review - Smitten by the Brit

Genre:   Romance

English professor Bonnie Blythe expects her life to play out like her favorite novels, especially now that her long-term boyfriend has finally proposed. So when a shocking discovery leads Bonnie to end her engagement, she decides to close the book on love. But the plot thickens when a brand-new character enters the scene—and quickens Bonnie's heart.

With his brilliant blue eyes, sexy accent, and irresistible charm, Theo Wharton is like a romantic hero straight out of a Jane Austen novel. When fate places Bonnie in England for a summer—conveniently close to Theo—she realizes a hot friends-with-benefits fling is exactly what she needs to start a fresh chapter. Just as Bonnie begins to believe she's falling in love, an eye-opening revelation into Theo's life makes Bonnie feel like she's wandered into one of her favorite books. Will Bonnie have the courage to risk her heart and turn the page with the dashing Brit to find her true happy ending after all?


Bonnie Blythe is an English professor with a great opportunity. She gets offered a teaching job across the pond. Timing couldn't be any better for Bonnie because, after having been engaged for quite while, and actually looking forward to setting a date, Bonnie discovers something shocking and ends her engagement.

Meanwhile, Bonnie had met Theo Wharton, sexy as all get out, a few months previously, but she never allowed her head to turn. All of that changed when she became single again. So, Bonnie hopes to start again, and could she really be falling in love with Theo? Nothing is that simple, however, but she hopes that learning even more about Theo might bring her a true happily ever after.

Having previously read the first book in the series, Getting Hot with the Scot, I met Bonnie and all of the girlfriends. So, therefore, I definitely looked forward to this book in the Sometimes in Love series. I loved seeing Bonnie fall in love with her British romantic duke.

This is a quick, fun read and a great addition to the series. I admit being addicted, as I have already read the third book in the series, Once Upon a Bad Boy, and it was equally as good. I look forward to not only continuing this series, but whatever else Melonie Johnson has to offer.

Many thanks to St. Martin's Press and to NetGalley for this ARC to be reviewed in exchange for my honest opinion.


While on a visit to DramaMama land you’re likely to find tales of writing woe, craft and party ideas (and crafty party ideas), an occasional recipe, links to other wonderful and wacky websites, home fix-it projects, tales of home ownership agony (aka Appliance Hell), and lots and lots of stuff about the drama of being a mama.

Overall, this site is  a random collection of random stuff about my life – eventually it may turn into something more cohesive…but in order for that to happen, my life needs to become more cohesive, so you may be in for a long wait. Enjoy the ride!
