How do you know when a fake relationship turns into a real one? #AskingForAFriend

Claire is not:

  • A natural athlete
  • Very good with mornings
  • Greyson Vaughn’s real girlfriend

But she pretends to be his girlfriend on television. And Twitter.  And the gossip websites that question Every. Single. Thing. about his movie star existence. Including the question on everyone’s lips — #WhosThatGirl? 

Enlisted by her grandmother to act as Greyson’s “mysterious English girlfriend” during a weekend at Castle Calder, Claire agrees to help the Hollywood hottie combat rumors of stalking his pop-star ex. She needs a a distraction  — from grad school, bills and her dull-as-dishwater love life — and, well, it’s only for a weekend.

Until Greyson asks her to continue the ruse through his upcoming London premiere. And another trip to Castle Calder for a sexy weekend escape. Where there are no cameras and no reporters. Nothing but the two of them and a “fake” relationship that’s starting to feel very, very real.

A Brit Unexpected is a fun and enjoyable read about a fake relationship that turns real. The writing is great and the pace flowed well and I easily got into the book when I picked it up. Unfortunately I was never able to fully get into the story as much as I would've liked, but that's probably because of not making enough time to read this book and only reading a chapter or two each evening. I also had some minor issues like how some topics could've been explored a bit more, a few scenes that were told that I would've liked to read and the ending seemed a bit abrupt. The romance was sweet and well done and I liked both characters well enough. There was no big conflict, but there were some personal issues they both have to deal with. I thought the fake relationship topic was handled well and it felt realistic. This is an author I can fully recommend if you enjoy a good YA/ NA romance book.

"A Brit Unexpected" is an entertaining and sexy little "Arrangement" romance. Brenda St. John Brown weaves a story about a slightly unscrupulous grandmother setting her granddaughter up with a movie star. The movie star's manager/grandfather happens to be dating the calculating grandmother. Claire's a normal wholesome girl working in a coffee shop while attending university. Her mother died when she was young and was raised by her emotionally unavailable grandmother. Claire has a difficult time trusting people and when pressed, emotionally, she runs away. The Hero, Greyson's a Hollywood actor who recently broke-up with a Taylor Swift-type pop star. The singer is a mudslinger attempting to make herself look good at Greyson's professional expense. Since Greyson's a popular actor he's used to people wanting to get close to him because of his celebrity. He's distrustful and seldom allows himself to drop his public celebrity persona and be his true self. Brenda St. John Brown provides an intriguing storyline with emotionally engaging characters. Both the Hero and Heroine are extremely distrustful. Not only that they are terrible at reading the other's signals they are horrible at sending out the right ones. Greyson and Claire's grandparents are sufficiently meddling combined with cold and calculating mercenary streaks. At least Greyson's grandfather has an excuse, he's his PR advisor. The secondary characters are amusing and colorful. The pacing is steady and peppy and the action, though subtle, has you hooked. "A Brit Unexpected" was a delightfully unexpectedly entertaining and romantic read. I wasn't familiar with Brenda St. John Brown's work nor her Calder Castle series. I'm glad I stumbled across it. The premise is fun and intriguing right away. Claire and Greyson get off to a slow start with their sexual and romantic chemistry. Off the bat their banter's witty and amusing, they give great flirt, and they have some delightfully steamy sex. The secondary characters are wonderfully colorful and there's a lot of mention of really tasty food. So have a snack before reading.

There is something about a modern day fairytale like love story that makes me swoon. Take a Hollywood heartthrob and an everyday girl, put them together in a humorous and passionate love story, and I am hooked. Brenda St. John Brown has yet another brilliant book in her Castle Calder series. This story has everything we love about new adult romantic stories. There is a man and a woman, two people finding themselves, who fall in love along the way. A Brit Unexpected feels like a glimpse into the beginning of a happily ever after. In the real world of Hollywood romances, there are ups and downs that make it hard. This book explores the raw uncertainty and hesitation two people can have in a new relationship. There is second guessing and frustration but the good times seem to outweigh the bad. These two click, allowing each other a safe place to see life in a fresh way. I love their chemistry and banter, something that livens their story. I appreciated how Brown takes this love story and creates a book that is fresh with a hint of vulnerability. She creates and environment for her two leads to find love and a safe place from the chaos of life. Nothing is perfect but it gives the reader hope that there are many more good times to come. Claire is a female lead that people will relate to; a woman that is both confident and wounded from what she has been through. Her fears and hesitation allows her authenticity to relate to the reader, giving this book an edge. Greyson adds a sense of appeal that draws you in and once he reveals a softer, real side, you want what is best for him; and that is Claire. This book is a wonderful combination of fairytale and hopeful realism. There is a constant tug and pull between both sides until these two find a place that is comfortable to be in. I am excited for more of the Castle Calder series and hope to see much more of these two in the future! I need more of their story and happily ever after.
