CANDACE: KAT & YASMINE! DO NOT DALLY! Come straight home after work. Kat, don’t take the long route from the subway station just so you can pass by Cute Hot Dog Guy. This is important!
I’ve had THE BEST DAY. You won’t believe it. There I was in my preschool classroom, washing a bit of poo out of some soggy trousers, when this absolute babe came to collect his nephew from my class.
Truthfully, I thought I’d blacked out for a moment when I first saw him. He was a proper hunk with glorious brown hair, quite tall, and he had these arms. Are muscly arms supposed to turn me on? I’m panting just thinking about them.
Anyway, he told me he’s a professional foosball player. At least, I think that’s what he said. The tots can get quite loud near pick-up time.
YASMINE: Foosball? What are you on about? Have you gone mad?
KAT: Oh sod off. So what if I like to have a good look at Hot Dog Guy’s arse on my trek home after a hard day’s work? It’s called self-care.
CANDACE: Kat, you’re hopeless. Yasmine, yes—foosball! I suppose it’s a big thing over here in the States? We must investigate and learn everything we can.
By the way, he’s called Logan.
Logan + Candace. I think that sounds quite nice! I can hear the wedding bells now. Dum dum da-dum.
YASMINE: Oh good grief. I suppose we can do some snooping when I get home. I’ll grab wine on my way.
KAT: I’ll grab hot dogs.

✨ I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review ✨
This book was a breath of fresh air. Candace is a school preschool teacher on the upper east side, one day Logan comes in to pick up his Nephew and this is where he and Candace meet.
Oh my gosh, Candace is bloody hilarious – I can’t stress that enough, right from the beginning she had me laughing so much, she is quirky and fun although I do think her Britishness may have been a little bit overdone, but I can totally forgive it because it was so entertaining. Logan – it’s always nice when the male love interest is just a nice guy and this is exactly what Logan is a nice (hot) guy – no douchiness no controlling bullshit just a caring and protectiveness and lots of smolder!
I enjoyed the way the romance played out, it was nicely balanced – no jumping into bed straight away. The build-up was done just nicely. The banter between Logan and Candace was on point! I love a good female lead who can hold her own and not be intimidated by the fact that the guy she is dating is super famous – she treats Logan like a regular person.
In a nutshell…
A fabulous little romantic comedy from R.S.Grey – I super recommened
My Rating: 4/5 🌟🌟🌟🌟
