I didn’t think this author could make this book better than the first one “Getting Hot with the Scot” but I was so so wrong. This one had me by the heartstrings to the very end. All the literature references in this book add such a great effect to this story while it helped you connect with the characters even further. Theo Wharton was a true gentleman throughout this book who I believe all man should take note off. His compassion, understanding, patience, care, manners, respect, loyalty and love his show to all from family to friends even over his own feeling.
This book can be read as a stand-alone or like myself read as part of this great series of book by this great new author. The book is a fast paste read that will totally entertain through with the humour, friendship, chemistry and sexual tension. I would highly recommend this author and this book to anyone. It was great to be back with these characters again as well get more of an insight to their wonderful friendship and their growth in each of their lives. The story grows in such a way that it has brought in so many other characters and plots that you are already wishing you could read about them.
We start back in Chicago with Bonnie Blythe at an event meeting up with her friends and as had been the case for some time she is minus her fiancé Gabe. Bonnie was not happy with her prolonged engagement but she was hopeful with Gabe’s PHD finalising soon that this may all chance.
“As was so often the case lately, her significant other was significantly absent.”
As she hoped she got a change but it was not the one she had always dreamed of.
Bonnie loved her books, Shakespeare and had many great characters in these novels she aspires to be, she feels like Anne Shirley from Anne of Green Gables and her best friend Cassie in life is Diana Barry, Anne’s bosom buddy from the same book.
“Bonnie had often wished to be in the middle of an Austen novel. Only now that she was, she couldn’t wait to escape.”
Bonnie and Theo Wharton had met some 9 months ago in England when her best friends meet the love of her life. Logan is Theo’s best mate and Bonnie is best friends with Cassie so it was not surprising for Theo to turn up in Chicago unannounced.
Both Theo and Bonnie had a connection the first time they met but will Bonnie is a long term relationship both made not steps to each other. But this is not the case any longer as they both find out they are staying at the same motel in the city. Can their friendship turn to something more maybe a friendship with benefits?
“Your dimples.” She sighed again. ” They’re my kryptonite.”
Bonnie sets off for a summer teacher and rediscovery in England but before she leaves he learns that Theo is a Duke like a character in one of her novels.
Will Theo be Bonnie’s rebound boy or will they find something stronger?

DEFINITELY, MAYBE...OR LOVE, ACTUALLY?
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?
