OMG!!! So I totally loved the first book, as you can see from yesterday’s review which you can read here, and immediately read book 2 and now I am dying to read book 3.
I enjoyed seeing a different side to Alexander. I liked seeing his relationship with Emma. It was pretty explosive as all brother/sister relationships. Me and my brothers argue like crazy but deep down we love each other it’s the same with Alexander and Emma.
I loved seeing Lauren grow throughout this book. She goes through so many ups and downs I felt quite sorry for her. She was determined to stay away from Alexander, telling herself that he’s no good for her but she gets thrown in the deep end and has to contend with both of the Hunt siblings.
Rupert is as evil as ever. Oh boy do I hate him. Valentina is no better. I hate the pair of them. In fact I think they would be perfect for each other.
I loved this book as much as the first and with another explosive ending I cannot wait to read book 3.
The First Time We Met (Oxford Blue #1)
The First Time We Met is the first novel in the sizzling new Oxford Blue romance series from Pippa Croft.
When US Senator’s daughter Lauren Cusack arrives at the enchanting Wyckham College of Oxford University, she hopes to mend her broken heart by throwing herself into her studies.
But then English aristocrat Alexander Hunt walks into her life and everything changes. Handsome, brooding, and with his own dark past to escape, Alexander is exactly what Lauren doesn’t need – but she finds herself helplessly drawn towards him.
Both Alexander and Lauren know that they should stay away from each other . . . but sometimes desire is so powerful that it conquers all else.
