If Only by A.J. Pine
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received an advanced ebook copy for an honest review from Netgalley.
Jordan Brooks is headed to Scotland for a year to study abroad. Her best friend Sam has convinced her that she needs to have a fling since it's been two years since her last serious relationship. As luck would have it, she quickly meets the perfect Mr. Right Now in Griffin on the train from London to Aberdeen. Griff takes the seat next to her on the train and the flirting is instant. Jordan and Griff hit it off right away and in any other story they would have been the stars of our story.
However, shortly into the trip A.J. heads to the loo and gets stuck in the compartment with Noah, who is also a student heading to Aberdeen. Jordan also hits it off with Noah, he's the perfect match for her English major self (he carries around a worn and self annotated copy of The Great Gatsby). Plus they share a quick kiss that knocks her for a loop. Could he be her Mr. Right?
Once in Aberdeen Jordan meets a cast of friends that will guide her through this year of fun and discovery.
I really enjoyed this book and read it in about a day. I thought the characters were great, the story was wonderful and I got sucked into everything which is how I like to read.
I really would recommend this book!
Me Being Nitpicky
My one complaint is the mention of Jane Austen being a Victorian-era author. As a huge Jane Austen fan, this always bothers me because Jane died about 20 years before the start of the Victorian Era. Victorian literature roughly starts around 1830, Austen died in 1817 and her novels were all published before 1820.
