I've made no secret on this blog how much I enjoy Giovanna Fletcher's novels. They're such enjoyable chick lit novels. Despite this I've never actually reviewed Fletcher's debut novel on here so with the release of the book in America on the 5th April now seems like a great time to write about it.
Billy and Me is about Sophie. She's about as down to earth as you can get and just keeps herself to herself in a small English village. Then one day world famous actor, Billy Buskin rolls into town and her life as she knows it changes forever.
For those who don't know Giovanna Fletcher is married to musician Tom Fletcher so it makes you wonder how much of this story is based on events/exaggerated events from her own life. Regardless of this, I really enjoyed this story and the characters were a delight to read about. Having read Fletcher's other novels she's certainly improved as a writer since this book was published however the story and characters truly make this book a must read.
Billy and Me is such a cute story. Billy and Sophie are wonderful characters who despite being from completely different worlds gel together perfectly. If you enjoy reading this book, the sequel is published in the UK in June. I know I certainly cannot wait for the sequel to be released as this book is fantastic.
Billy and Me is a gorgeously romantic debut novel about the redemptive power of love by actress, journalist and blogger Giovanna Fletcher.
Sophie May has a secret.
One that she's successfully kept for years. It's meant that she's had to give up her dreams of going to university and travelling the world to stay in her little village, living with her mum and working in the local teashop.
But then she meets the gorgeous Billy - an actor with ambitions to make it to the top. And when they fall in love, Sophie is whisked away from the comfort of her life into Billy's glamorous - but ruthless - world.
Their relationship throws Sophie right into the spotlight after years of shying away from attention. Can she handle the constant scrutiny that comes with being with Billy? And most of all, is she ready for her secret heartbreak to be discovered and shared with the nation?
Charming, heartwarming and utterly romantic, Billy and Me will completely capture your heart.
