Book Review: A Brit on the side

 A Brit on the Side (Calder Castle #1) By Brenda St John Brown

A Brit on the Side (Calder Castle #1)Bea’s English escape plan:
• Work in a real British castle
• Quality time with bestie
• Figure out what spotted dick really is
• Fall for bestie’s older brother. Hard.

Bea Gillespie would rather do anything than teach summer school math two classrooms down from her ex-fiancé. So when her best friend, Scarlett, invites her to England for the summer to work in her family’s castle-turned-hotel, she jumps at the chance.

Now Bea’s an ocean away from her problems at home, but she’s got a bigger one. A British one. Scarlett’s older brother, Jasper, is at Castle Calder for the summer, too. And he’s as sexy and smart as Bea remembers. Two years ago Jasper came stateside, and he and Bea shared a hot weekend. But that’s all it was — a weekend. One she purposely didn’t tell Scarlett about.

It didn't feel like much of a secret until now. As Bea falls for Jasper, what started off as a fling begins feeling more and more like the kind of thing you’d gush about to your best friend. If you hadn’t been lying to her all along.

MEOW . . . MEOW . . . MEOW

A Brit on the side is about Bea who had one of the best experience of her life with a Brit several years ago and now she and her roommate are traveling to the UK to start their summer adventure. But that summer adventure didn't include to see her roommate's hot sexy Brit brother there as well. 

The very same Brit a few years ago . . . 

With Bea, I'm surprise on how little she sees herself. But with jasper, I think he would help see her true self and be just her.

Jasper, apparently is your version of hot, sexy, geeky and a Brit. Although he's only at Calder castle to work on his research, he's doing much more than research. When he sees Bea, that attraction is still there.

The fire is still there, after all these years. 

Troubles run and causes major drift for Bea. Although she didn't expect to feel the way she does, how can you control your heart? 

I give this four Cat Paws; For the most part this was an enjoyable book. I do kind of wish there was more romance between Bea and Jasper considering this was about them reminiscing.
