WHAT READERS SAY:

“A holiday fling that will last longer than your tan!”

“A wonderful funny, sexy, romantic read.”

“This book is gorgeous, simply gorgeous…jump-off-the-page characters, masses of humour, sexual tension you could cut with a penknife, heart-wringing romance-you literally won’t be able to put it down.”

“I would highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys enveloping themselves in a great big squashy marshmallow duvet with a whopping box of chocolates-this is the literary equivalent.”

“Another lovely romantic tale from Phillipa Ashley that will leave you feeling all warm and cosy.”

Then Jack and Beth run into each other again…while she’s applying for an exciting new job in London-at his company. For necessity’s sake, but against her better judgment, she takes the job, and from that moment on, complicated doesn’t even begin to describe it…
