Settling down for a 24-hour flight to Australia, Lucy finds a text message on her phone from a woman claiming to have slept with her boyfriend, James, four times in the past month. Trapped above the Pacific, she questions everything about their relationship, but when she finally calls him James reassures her that it was only his friend playing a joke. James is gorgeous and successful and Lucy adores him, yet at her best friend Molly’s wedding in Sydney she finds herself having doubts and keeping an eye Molly's brother-in-law Nathan? Nathan is a happy-go-lucky surfer boy with no prospects, no place to live, and an almost-girlfriend in tow. Suddenly Lucy finds herself caught between two distant continents and two very different men.
This is the third time I have read this book. It's my favourite book ever and Paige Toon is my favourite chic-lit author. The first couple of times I read this I didn't write reviews and with it being my favourite book I thought I would re-read it and so now I'm writing the review for it.
I love this book, I love everything about this book and it's a book I can re-read over and over again and never get bored because it's such an amazing love story. It was one of the first books I read and it's the book that made me love reading and got me interested in reading. Though I have found a love for Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy books Chic-lit will always be my favourite genre of books.
Lucy is on a flight to Australia to her best friends wedding when she gets a text from her boyfriend of three years phone wrote by someone else telling of his infidelity. Lucy is distraught and heartbroken that he would do this to her. When he tells her that it was a drunken joke from his friends Lucy decides to believe him but still has her doubts. Then she gets re-aquinted with Nathan, her best friends younger brother and instantly feels things towards him she has never felt before, not even with James. Suddenly she is torn between two guys, James, who may or may not be cheating on her or Nathan, the guy she has fallen in love with but doesn't know what to do about it.
I love everything about this book. It's my favourite chic lit book and I can't say a bad word about it. It's amazing. I love Nathan, he was the first fictional guy I ever fell in love with and no matter how many books I read and how many more fictional guys I fall in love with I don't think anyone can compare to Nathan, my first fictional love.
He is just sweet and adorable and all the way through the book I found myself saying just leave James and be with Nathan. I never really believed that he hadn't cheated on her and it took all my will power to not look in the back of the book and see who she ended up with.
If you are a sucker for a love story and love romance books then this is definitely a book for you. Paige Toon proves herself to be a great chic lit author and I love re-reading her books because they are just so good.
