The third short story in the fun & flirty #LoveLondon series from exciting new chick lit author Nikki Moore!
For Georgiana Dunn, life changed forever in the devastating moment that the lorry hit her car.
Scarred and scared, she’s not left the house in months. Then her mum buys her a puppy, forcing her to face the world again, walking on London’s beautiful Primrose Hill. But that doesn’t mean she’s looking forward to Valentine’s Day.
Leo devotes himself to working with children with special educational needs. In fact, he does very little else, and his friends are always telling him to get a (love) life. So when they challenge him to find a date for Valentine’s Day, and he meets a lovely but lost girl who looks like she could use a friend, he thinks he’s found the perfect solution.
But life has a way of being less than perfect … Will he be left standing on his own on the most romantic day of the year?
I had previously read the other books in the #LoveLondon series so when I saw Valentine’s on Primrose Hill was on offer I had to buy it. Unfortunately my schedule has been jam-packed so I’ve only just got round to reading it.
We open with Leo at the top of Primrose Hill looking out at the gorgeous London skyline. I’ve never been to Primrose Hill but the description made me want to hop on a train and go there straight away. I thought Leo was so sweet. He clearly has a big heart and really cares about people.
We then flash back to how Georgiana and Leo met and what had happened leading up to Valentine’s Day. Georgiana is a shadow of the girl she used to be. After an accident left her physically scarred for life she doesn’t think that anyone could ever love her. Not with an ugly scar and an eye patch. She has confined herself to staying indoors and occasionally people-watching through the front room window.
That is until her mum buys her a puppy. Buttons is sooo cute. I wish I could have a dog as cute as him. He seems like a handful but between him, Leo and her parents Georgiana is starting to move past her physical appearance and live again.
This is my favourite of the #lovelondon series so far and I can’t wait to get stuck into Cocktails in Chelsea.
