Contemporary romance / to review

This felt like those xmas hallmark movies you know. Very cute, and instead of a prince she meets and falls for a famous actor.

Gigi is a journalist digging for something big. Then she meets her old crush and hooks up with him. I did have a really hard time believing that she was totally unaware that the guy she crushed on for years was a part of a famous BBC show... Her excuse was she does not watch tv, but hey, movies. the internet. I guess she never follows anything. But if we can look past that....I mean how many watches BBC? ;)

Quick read where two people meet, fall in lust, but they love oceans apart. Will their romance continue?

But there is a dark side to the story too. She is investigating a club; drugs, abuse, rape...And if will affect their relationship. That is where the drama shows up. They have to work for what they want

Still, this is a romance and they lived happily ever after. Truly happily since there is an epilogue too. 

A one-night stand between two old childhood friends turns into something more, but when a scandal threatens to tear them apart, they must decide how hard to fight for love—a steamy romance debut perfect for fans of Tessa Bailey and Kennedy Ryan​.

Exhausted and on deadline with a story that could make or break her career, investigative journalist Georgia Ross is on the verge of a meltdown when a cancelled flight leaves her stuck in the airport overnight. But when a familiar face appears—the older brother of her childhood friend—and offers help, Gigi seems to have caught a break.

Alec Kim is handsome, humble, and kind—exactly the sort of man that Gigi has forgotten existed after her own painful heartbreaks. An evening of reconnection followed by a night of no-strings-attached passion with Alec feels like a gift—that is, until Gigi finally realizes that their childhood connection isn’t the only reason he seems so familiar to her.

Alec is determined to prove to Gigi that he is truly the man she thinks he is, even if it means coming clean about his fame—and his family’s connection to the story Gigi’s been working so hard to break. But as their feelings for each other grow deeper, Gigi and Alec must navigate a new reality…one where both of their hard-won careers are put directly in the path of an international scandal.


  1. Yea, it seems unlikely that she didn't know someone she was close with was now a big name. But at least the story is a good one!

    1. Sure she was like 13 when they left the country and no contact. And sure there are weird people out there not watcjing tv lol

  2. I like the premise for this one. Thanks for letting us know about this.

  3. Make this a Netflix or Hallmark movie!

  4. Yes, it would be odd to not know, but I don't watch a lot of TV either. Still...Love a good HEA.

    1. She is super busy at her work, so ok I can believe it, and even if he looked like a famous person it is not him..right.

  5. I still like the happily ever after bit yet.

  6. This sounds fun. I always love an epilogue cause I always want to know more...
