Fall for a new trope-tastic, exes-to-lovers rom-com read from USA Today bestselling author, Lila Monroe! Perfect for fans of Tessa Bailey, Ali Hazelwood, and Emily Henry.
Fraser MacKenzie is handsome, Scottish… and the first man to ever break my heart. We had a whirlwind romance during my study-abroad in England, until it ended in an epic ghosting (his), and untold misery (mine). I haven’t laid eyes on his distractingly broad shoulders in years… Until I arrive back on British shores for my dream job consulting on a big new production of Pride & Prejudice, and find that Fraser is working on the movie, too.
Or rather, he finds me. Naked in the communal shower. Clinging to a hand-towel and my dignity for dear life.
I have zero desire to go strolling back down memory lane with him, even if our burning chemistry would put Lizzie and Darcy to shame. But when I accidentally send our lead actor fleeing on a mysterious mission, Fraser and I have four days to track him down - before the entire movie falls apart.
Embarking on a madcap British road-trip with my ex is a recipe for disaster… and serious temptation. Fraser is more infuriating - and swoon-worthy — than ever, and soon, we’re not so much rekindling an old flame as setting the world (and my burning loins) on fire.
But can we overcome the ghostings of the past to find real love? And will we make it to our missing actor in time to save the movie - and my career?

A totally fun read
I really can’t express how fun this book was! I couldn’t put it down. Perfect summer, feel good book! We’ll done
I always get so excited when I have a new Lila Monroe book to read! And I couldn’t wait for this one! JJ was so much fun in The Hollywood Marriage Bargain, and here you get to see here shine in her element, in England, helping on all things Austen on a movie set. Opportunity of a lifetime & dream job. Everything is perfect, until she runs into the hot Scot who broke her heart 10 years ago. He’s also on set, unavoidable, and bringing all the memories and pain back. But an unexpected road trip and chase after the leading man gives these two time to get back on track, in a round about way. Absolutely loved!! And cannot wait for the next one!!
Fun journey to a second chance
If you want a fun light read packed with a lot of humor, this is the book for you. Jolene Jameson (JJ), has an opportunity of a lifetime. She has been working on her dissertation on Jane Austen, and in the prior book in this series, the director of the new Pride and Prejudice movie hires her as a consultant for the movie. She hasn’t been back to England for ten years. JJ was a nineteen year old in London for the first time when she met artist Fraser MacKenzie. They have a whirlwind romance, and she goes home thinking he is the one and is planning their future, when he ghosts her. Fast forward ten years, and who else arrives on the set of her dream job, but Fraser. Fraser has been hired by the studio to cut costs on the movie. He can’t believe his eyes when he sees Jolene. When the lead actor goes AWOL, Fraser and JJ have to put aside their issues to get him back on set before the studio finds out. This puts them on an journey through the English and Scottish countryside, and possibly a journey to a second chance. I love a good second chance romance, and this one does not disappoint. A great, fun, summer read. I received an arc of this book from the author for my honest review.
