The Italian Job by Kathryn Freeman - Short Review

This was a five star book for me! As always, my full review will be up within the week, but I loved this book so much I wanted to give you all a chance to jump on a pre-order as soon as possible.


I loved this book. The main characters were flawed, relatable, and fun with complex backstories that really guided their (often not great) choices. And best of all, they had that classic enemies to lovers banter that is just perfection.

Add in desperation for a job, close quarters inside an Italian castle, and the local residents of the town and you have a recipe for some great times! Every major character had such a unique personality and I really felt like I was right there with them in the small Italian town.

I could not put this book down. Once they decided to go along with the fake dating ploy, every second of this book kept me hooked. I had such a great time following them as they learned more about each other, were forced into some couples situations, and eventually learned how to love each other. A solid enemies to lovers, fake dating story with a planner who needs to control everything and a man who's unpredictable and outside her control. Their growth as a couple (both physically and emotionally) progressed so naturally with successes and setbacks along the way that were believable and so very in character, even if I wanted to shout at the characters for making the wrong choices. I definitely recommend this book!

In the meantime, you can check out the author's website, or add the book to your shelves on goodreads.


Thank you to HarperCollinsUK, One More Chapter, and netgalley for allowing me to read an advance copy of this book so I can write these reviews for you prior to publication.
