Happy Thursday friends!
Have you ever been to Australia? Well I have not, so it was lots of fun traveling there through the pages of this book. 🐨
When Adam Met Evie
When former Olympic Swimmer, Michael Adams—now Canada’s hottest reality TV star— insults his fake showbiz wife on social media, he escapes the ensuing scandal and jumps on the first flight to Australia. Desperate to experience ordinary life again—if only for a few weeks—he becomes “Adam”, just another tourist traveling through the Outback. But with a reward out for his safe return and his fame’s nasty habit of catching up with him when he least expects, he needs a better disguise… and he’s just found it.
Sweet and scruffy British backpacker, Evie Blake, is taking a year out of her busy London life. Tired of lies and liars, she’s looking for adventure to heal her broken heart. So when the hot Canadian she meets at the campground offers to be her travel partner through Western Australia’s wild Kimberley region, she grabs the chance, unaware he’s got the world out looking for him.
He’s just a down-on-his-luck traveler, right?
Romance and a road trip. Once again I went traveling through the pages of my book, this time to Australia. Giulia Skye has written an entertaining and refreshing romance with a little steam. Michael Adams is a famous Canadian Olympic swimmer who escapes to Australia to flee the paparazzi. Evie lives in England and was planning to take a trip of a lifetime with her partner, but he bailed on her so she decides to take the trip on her own. The two of them have a meet cute (sort of) and then decide to travel the Australian wild together. Not wanting to be recognized Michael introduces himself as Adam and Evie is none the wiser. What follows is an engaging story combining romance and travel.
I had fun with this book, I enjoyed traveling along with Adam and Evie. I also enjoyed waiting for the shoe to drop, you know eventually it’s going to come out that Adam has been lying and I kept wondering what Evie‘s reaction was going to be. Evie was such a warm hearted sweet girl you did not want her to get duped by Adam. But Adam seemed like a good guy who just got caught up in a bad situation? But lying is lying. For a while I was wondering if there’s any chance they could actually end up together? I mean not only was Adam lying, but the two of them lived across the world from one another. A sweet story that made me smile!
