Jo's Review - Valentines on Primrose Hill by Nikki Moore

What They Say:

The third short story in the fun & flirty #LoveLondon series from exciting new chick lit author Nikki Moore!

For Georgiana Dunn, life changed forever in the devastating moment that the lorry hit her car.

Scarred and scared, she's not left the house in months.Then her mum buys her a puppy, forcing her to face the world again, walking on London's beautiful Primrose Hill. But that doesn't mean she's looking forward to Valentine's Day.

Leo devotes himself to working with children with special educational needs. In fact, he does very little else, and his friends are always telling him to get a (love) life. So when they challenge him to find a date for Valentine's Day, and he meets a lovely but lost girl who looks like she could use a friend, he thinks he's found the perfect solution.

But life has a way of being less than perfect … Will he be left standing on his own on the most romantic day of the year?

What I Say:

Again this is one that was in my TBR pile and I will give a fair and honest review.

Georgiana is really struggling after being tragically injured and scared in a car crash, I can understand her reluctance to go out with her scars as I have one myself that makes me very self conscious by it is nowhere near the same.

Her mum is trying to get her back out into the world again and buys her a dog, she forced to take him for walks and this brings a whole new lease of life for her, especially when she meets Leo.  Georgiana is conscious of people looking at her but in Leo she finds someone who looks past her scars.  He is caring and never pushes her and she finds she starts to trust him.

I've got to say I cried when I read this one as it all felt too personal.  I loved Leo and always hoped he was doing what he was for the best reasons and not because of the silly bet with his friends.
