Pull up a deck chair and bask in the beautiful sunshine on Buttercup Beach. The sand is warm, the sea is sparkling blue and romance is sizzling in the air…
For two years Freya Greene has hidden the fact that she’s totally and utterly in love with her best friend Rome Lancaster. It’s not been easy – they work together in his glasswork business, she lives above his workshop and, he’s completely gorgeous. But Rome has never shown any sign of returning those feelings. Until now…
Lately they’ve shared affectionate touches and words heavy with meaning. Yet Freya knows Rome has a damaged heart. After losing his fiancé in a tragic accident, he’s not allowed himself to fall in love.
Freya has already had her heart broken by a man who couldn’t let go of a past love. Can she risk it happening again? Rome and Freya have a friendship that could blossom into something more. Are they both brave enough to take that chance?
Fall in love on Hope Island with the perfect romantic story to escape into this summer. For fans of Miranda Dickinson, Sarah Morgan and Jane Costello.
Falling in love with a book has never been so easy! I can honestly say that I was swept away by Summer at Buttercup Beach, the setting and the cute romance. There was everything I wanted and more was packed into this book.
We are back at hope island, focusing on Freya and Rome’s romance. Everyone can see that the are meant to be together and both really like one another. But because of their pasts both are afraid to fess up to their feelings and just declare their undying love.
I really enjoyed reading about Freya and Rome’s friendship and how close the are. It was lovely catching up with Eden and Bella, and cannot wait for the next book in the series to catch up even more! I love how Holly focuses on the main couple of the story but allows us to catch up with old friends without being too in informative and going off on one…. (really made more sense in mm head!!).
I loved that we got to see their work relationship and how in tune the were with one another when making the stained glass items. All the items created sounded incredible and breathtaking. I love how the know what the other wants, but their romance manages to have some ups and downs. As well as a good chuck of hilarious moments and embarrassing times.
Full of heart, warmth and a smidgen of sexiness Summer at Buttercup Beach is a perfect holiday read. Sunny, bright and full of hope this one book you won’t want to put down!
