Smitten by the Brit

“The sophomore effort from Johnson may be even better than her exceptional debut, and her navigation of betrayal, heartbreak, noblesse oblige, family pressure, disappointment, and the healing power of love add up to another terrific read. Along with the snappy dialogue, sizzling emotional and sexual tension (with a couple of very hot sex scenes), and full-blooded characters, Johnson weaves in references to art, literature, music, and other cultural touchstones that add depth and authenticity to the tale. Another delightful winner from an author on the rise.”

-Kirkus Reviews

“Rollicking fun… This irreverent tale turns several romance tropes on their heads while still delivering that sweet fairy tale ending that readers look for. ”

Publishers Weekly

“Bonnie and Theo are kind, smart, and oh-so-deserving of each other. Their love is sure to melt hearts; the chemistry is titillating; fun literary references add to the charm; and well-drawn secondary characters create additional depth and humor. Readers will be entirely smitten.”

-Booklist (Starred Review)

“Aglow with sparks of attraction and a smashing romance…
SMITTEN BY THE BRIT is powerfully romantic and temptingly refreshing like a Long Island iced tea in the summer time!”
