About the Book:
WILL HER FLING BECOME HIS FOREVER?
Leia Scott has sworn off love. Fresh from a messy, public divorce from her hockey player ex, the twenty-six-year-old fashion designer temporarily trades New York for London to heal and embrace her freedom. Her vow? To protect her heart, steer clear of relationships, and say yes to flings without strings. She throws herself into designing upcycled dresses and exploring London with her sister. But Leia’s carefully curated plan encounters a flirty complication with an irresistible British accent.
Wealthy, charming, and devastatingly attractive, Tarquin Balfour is tired of meaningless hookups and dates that go nowhere. For years, he has played the bon viveur with reckless abandon, throwing decadent parties, sleeping with a parade of women, and diving into extreme sports around the globe. But now the young property developer wants more. He craves love and commitment, to prove his kind heart matters more than the abundance of zeroes attached to his bank balance. Struggling with undiagnosed depression, Tarquin worries he’ll never find The One…until he meets his princess, a fashion designer named Leia.
Afraid of falling in love and fearful of being alone, Leia and Tarquin enter into an entanglement that threatens to hurt them both.
SAY HELLO, KISS GOODBYE is a sexy story of love, second chances, gratitude, and finding beauty in the broken and the forgotten.
(Thank you to the author for providing an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own.)
First of all, how gorgeous is this cover? And when I read the book description I was immediately drawn in. Although I read and loved the author’s earlier books in this series, this story is a complete standalone and can be read on its own.
Leia is a young fashion designer visiting family in London after a devastating breakup. At the top of her list is just to have some fun and Tarquin Balfour seems to fit the bill perfectly. After a “meet cute”, the two of them share some steamy time together and Leia is ready to go back to New York. What terrible timing! Tarquin actually is interested in much more than just a one-night stand with Leia.
One of the things I really liked about this book were the wonderful and glamorous settings.It was fun to read about London, New York and Soctland. I also really appreciated the author normalizing the discussion of mental health and the way in which sex was presented in a healthy, positive way.
Overall this book is a fun, sexy, second-chance romance, with more than a little steam. The characters were all very well developed. Both Leia and Tarquin have interesting, thoughtful careers that really added something extra to this story. I also loved Leia’s gratitude journal! If you are looking for a modern, fast-paced romance with exciting settings, then you will surely love this book!
