ARC Review: Tangling with the London Tycoon by Suzi Jennings


Synopsis:

They don't believe in happy ever afters, until they find themselves in one.

London publishing tycoon Rosco Redmond closely guards his family, his business, and his privacy. When his sister’s wedding brings the paparazzi baying at his door, wedding photographer Kitty Mayfair unwittingly becomes his decoy girlfriend. But the mysterious Kitty has secrets of her own.

Despite the sexy hint of an appealing Irish brogue, Kitty’s new boss is bent on micromanaging his sister’s wedding and the crazy fake relationship she’s been dragged into. The only thing they seem to have in common, is that neither of them believes in happy-ever-afters. But the more time Kitty spends with the tycoon, the more she begins to suspect there’s a lot of fire beneath his cool facade.

With the past complicating their present, and the zoom lenses of photographers everywhere they go, the commitment phobic control freak and the globe-trotting free spirit clash and ignite.

MY REVIEW

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

2 out of 5 stars

Tangling with the London Tycoon was one of those books that based on the blurb I thought I would absolutely love, but when I read it it fell flat for me. The plot of the book was interesting, but sadly the romance was kind of lacking. I usually love the fake relationship trope, but it did not really work for me in this book. Mostly because I never really felt a spark between Rosco and Kitty, so as their relationship developed from fake to real I was never able to really become invested in their relationship and to be frank I was a bit bored by them. Also, another thing that didn't work for me in this book was that are all the "sex scenes" happen off the page. Now, normally I don't mind a sweet romance without explicit sex scenes, but the way the blurb is written for this book I was expecting some heat in this book and there is none and in my opinion that paired with the fact that I didn't see a spark between Rosco and Kitty outside of the bedroom made this romance not work for me. Overall, the premise and the situation that Rosco and Kitty had to deal with had the potential to be a fun romance, but the execution fell short and I found this book to be a very "meh" read.
