“…adorable summery contemporary romances that just leaves you with a smile on your face.”
~ Under the Covers

What a delightful surprise this book was!  I’ve had this series on my radar (and on my TBR) since I saw the first book was coming out.  I had plans to save it for my summer reading because it felt like it would be perfect to fit my mood then.  But then I saw the author mention on social media that this couple was her Ariel and Eric and this Little Mermaid fan could not wait any longer.  I had to read it.

I think Ms. Johnson did a great job at giving enough backstory that the reader can jump right into this book as a standalone without any problems.  From the moment I started reading I knew this would be one of those adorable summery contemporary romances that just leaves you with a smile on your face.  SMITTEN BY THE BRIT delivered that!

This was a book where both the main characters had to regroup and rethink their life because things were decidedly going in a different path than what they had always planned.  I enjoyed that journey for both of them a lot.

Mostly though, I just found this to be cute and fun.  It’s one of those books that is a breeze to read and you don’t want to put it down until you figure out how it’s going to turn out.  Getting to that happily ever after for this couple was a fun ride and I’m excited to read more from this author.

About Melonie Johnson

A Star Wars junkie and Shakespeare groupie who quotes both Yoda and the Bard with equal aplomb, award-winning author Melonie Johnson—aka #thewritinglush—is a two-time RWA Golden Heart® finalist who loves dark coffee, cheap wine, and expensive beer. And margaritas. And mimosas. And mules. Basically any cocktail that starts with the letter m. She met her future husband in that most romantic of places—the mall—when they were teenagers working in stores across the hall from each other. They went on to live happily ever after in the suburbs of Chicago with two redhead daughters, a dog that’s more like a small horse, and a trio of hermit crabs. After earning her Bachelor of Arts magna cum laude from Loyola University Chicago, Melonie taught high school English and Theatre in the northern Chicago suburbs for several years. Now she writes smart and funny contemporary romance and moonlights as an audiobook narrator under the pseudonym, Evelyn Eibhlin.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.

I really liked it too. Theo and his stiff British ways until he really lets go, whew! He’s my fav one in the series so far.
