Starting Over by Sue Moorcroft

****4 stars
This was my first book by Sue Moorcroft, and definitely want be my last. I absolutely adored this book and watching the character find her place in new surroundings. I really liked all the characters and found myself thinking of them after the book ended. I can't wait to start my next Moorcroft book ;)

Book Jacket Summary:
New home, new friends, new love. Can starting over be that simple? Tess Riddell reckons her beloved Freelander is more reliable than any man - especially her ex-fiancé, Olly Gray. She's moving on from her old life and into the perfect cottage in the country. Miles Rattenbury's passions? Old cars and new women! Romance? He's into fun rather than commitment.

Despite her overprotective parents and a suddenly attentive Olly, she discovers the joys of village life and even forms an unlikely friendship with Miles. Then, just as their relationship develops into something deeper, an old flame comes looking for him ... Is their love strong enough to overcome the past? Or will it take more than either of them is prepared to give?

From London with Love by Jemma Forte

****4 stars
This was a cute read and I really enjoyed it. Loved how it went from the United States to London and different lifestyles as well as language. This was a great read and as I haven't had much time recently to read it was a nice escape.

(un)like a virgin by Lucy Anne Holmes

**** 4 stars
I have looked forward to Holmes next book after reading "50 ways to find a lover" and this one did not disappoint. I was truly shocked at the depth that this book had. As it isn't a laugh a minute type of book, it is still an awesome read and one that you will find hard pressed to put down. I am so looking forward to any other books that Holmes has on her horizon.

Book Jacket Summary:
Is Gracie in love for the very first time? You know that bit in The X Factor, when the singer tells everyone about the rocky road they travelled to pursue their dream? Well, that's Gracie Flowers' story. Gracie is very focused for a woman of almost twenty-six. Her favourite book is 'The 5-Year Plan: Making the Most of Your Life'. And her five-year plan is going very well. That is, until she is usurped from her big promotion by a handsome, posh idiot; she is dumped by her boyfriend; and discovers her loopy mother is facing bankruptcy. Hormones awry and ice cream over-ordered, a dream Gracie thought she'd buried ten years ago starts to resurface. A dream that reminds her of the girl she used to be and everything she wanted to become.
