Synopsis: DEFINITELY, MAYBE…OR LOVE, ACTUALLY?
English professor Bonnie Blythe expects her life to play out like her favorite novels, especially now that her long-term boyfriend has finally proposed. So when a shocking discovery leads Bonnie to end her engagement, she decides to close the book on love. But the plot thickens when a brand-new character enters the scene—and quickens Bonnie’s heart.
With his brilliant blue eyes, sexy accent, and irresistible charm, Theo Wharton is like a romantic hero straight out of a Jane Austen novel. When fate places Bonnie in England for a summer—conveniently close to Theo—she realizes a hot friends-with-benefits fling is exactly what she needs to start a fresh chapter. Just as Bonnie begins to believe she’s falling in love, an eye-opening revelation into Theo’s life makes Bonnie feel like she’s wandered into one of her favorite books. Will Bonnie have the courage to risk her heart and turn the page with the dashing Brit to find her true happy ending after all?

It is the season of warmer climates and summer vacation. What better way to fill your leisurely time than a romance? Smitten by the Brit by Melonie Johnson is just that.
I was first introduced to Melonie Johnson in the first book of thie Sometimes in Love series, Getting Hot with the Scot. There’s a specific scene in that book, and I was smitten with these two. (wink wink) If you remember from my review, I was gushing so much about it. Well friends, Smitten by the Brit is just as enjoyable, if not more.
Bonnie is a Bardolator, Theo is a reluctant Duke. Whenever a main character is a bookworm, I always feels so connected. It’s an easy connection, and because in this case, it was, I was able to relate to Bonnie better. A lot about Bonnie’s life hits the points, and I enjoyed my time getting to know her. Theo. Well, Theo is dashing! He has a good heart and it shows. He shows up, he comforts, and he is an all-around good friend. If two people didn’t deserve better counterparts, then I don’t know what is wrong in this world.
To be honest, I wasn’t sure if their romance would compare to Cassie and Logan, but let me tell you, IT WAS AMAZING. There were so many scenes that I were delicious and others that were heartfelt.
Overall Smitten by the Brit was a great read that everyone needs in their libraries!
