Tilly has no intention of joining in - she's just happy with her new Girl Friday job. Then she meets Jack Lucas.
Jack is irresistible... and he's got his eye on Tilly. But there are shocking rumours about his wicked reputation. Tilly doesn't want to be just another notch on anyone's bedpost. But is she being mature and sensible - or is she running away from the love of her life?

Londoner Tilly Cole discovers the perils of smalltown life in Mansell's perfectly executed exemplar of fluff. After her live-in boyfriend does a runner, Tilly ditches London for Roxborough and a job as assistant to interior designer Max Dineen. Much of the town's gossip centers on handsome ladies' man Jack Lucas, and despite his almost irresistible charm, Tilly resolves not to be the latest notch on his bedpost. Meanwhile, gossip threatens to wreck Tilly's friend Erin when she's targeted by a jealous former friend and gets Max's ex-wife, Hollywood soap-opera star Kaye Dineen, hounded back to England. At the center, Tilly and Jack get into tangles, literally and figuratively, as they bounce toward their happy ending. While witty dialogue and wry observations keep the pace brisk, Mansell (Miranda's Big Mistake) still manages to tug at the heart.
This was the second of Jills books that I read and I was not disappointed! Such a joy to read, the chemistry between Tilly and Jack is adorable. Could not put the book down and I'm a avid reader of Jills books. Newbies to her writing will be pulled in and won't help but read her other books ;)
Great book & I loved the story
Weak story line and poor characters. Think I will give this author a miss
