A joyously romantic, feel-good summer read that will make you laugh, cry and fall in love. Eva Blue is about to go on a trip of a lifetime, but one adventure she didn’t count on was falling in love…
Eva is quite content with her life in London. In her job as a cover designer, she works at home, and often in her cosy pyjamas. She’s happy to stay in her safe little world and not explore much outside of it.
She is the opposite of her mum, a free spirit who craved finding adventure and thrills in all corners of the world. But on the day her mum’s will is finalised, Eva finds a list of all the dreams her mum wanted to achieve in her life. Things she never did because she fell pregnant with Eva.
Eva decides these dreams will not go unfulfilled — she is going to be brave and complete them for her mum. As Eva has no experience travelling the world, she hires a guide to go with her on this holiday.
Gorgeous but rude Thor Anderson is not the person she would choose to accompany her on this journey, but somehow she gets stuck with him. A
s they discover the world together Eva starts to think he might not be as bad as she first thought. She is swept away by Thor’s kindness and mischievous sense of humour. But will it be a simple holiday romance or could this wonderful adventure lead to so much more?
Thank you to Holly for my copy of this book. I have been reading Holly’s books for quite a while now and her writing style is so on point, the characters are easy to identify with and the locations never fail to be beautiful.
In this book, Holly has managed to surpass her previous books. The many, many locations are absolutely beautiful. Our main character Eva travels the world while ticking off her mum’s dreams. Eva has one of the best jobs in the world. I was very jealous of her! Eva had this naivety at the beginning of the book that made her so endearing. She is one of my favourite characters.
Not only is Eva travelling the world she gets to do it with the God of thunder himself Thor. Thor was rude, arrogant and so bloody handsome! As the book progresses I fell deeper and deeper in love with him. Thor has baggage, what happened to him was truly heartbreaking and it’s no surprise he has built some very big walls around his heart.
This is a truly magical adventure that I was honoured to be a part of it.
