Review: Hearts Abroad (Atlas #1)

★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆

From Goodreads:
When a fun-loving American nanny turns a millionaire British single dad’s world upside down, it’s inevitable life is going to get complicated.

Taking a break from screenwriting in New York City, Londyn Bellerose takes a nannying job in Colorado to get away from the hubbub. A summer to live without regrets is all she wants. While her boss is British, gorgeous, and a millionaire, he has no clue how to have fun. Determined to mend the relationship between father and daughters, Londyn doesn’t expect to fall for the museum curator.

Londyn is American and everything Callum Archer swore to never fall for again. With her carefree spirit and energetic smile, she’s perfect to nanny Callum’s two daughters. The problem is she’s also perfect for him. She’s sassy, musical, and tends to speak her mind more than she means to.

When old history and new dreams threaten her happily ever after, will Londyn and Callum’s love survive?

This solid three-star novel will warm you up with its promise of a HEA and lovable cast of characters. Take a chance and hop on board with this light retelling of the classic Cinderella.

After a heartbreak, all Londyn wants to have some fun during the summer. She isn't looking for anything else than a break from her regular life as a struggling playwright. Meeting Callum was not what she planned, but the stars aligned and brought them together anyway. Callum's world is turned upside down and he begins to question the choices he has made in his life after meeting the free-spirited girl who cares for his two daughters when he is working. They never thought they'd end up together, or stay together after the summer is over.

The characters are so easily lovable in Hearts Abroad. You just can't help but fall in love with them. The connection between Londyn and Callum's daughters, Bailey and Bethany, is instant and something most of would want to have with our own parents. The book doesn't show any fall-outs or fights between the girls which is something I missed afterwards. The relationship between Callum and Londyn, though, is a thing I admired. There definitely was sexual tension between those two the entire book, but it was not the main focus in the plot. It was there, the reader feels it until the end, but it is not shoved in your face all the time.

There were some scenes where I had trouble understanding where the characters were. I was thinking that they were standing next to each other, but truly they were positioned in entirely another way. It only happened twice or thrice, but I had to read the scenes a few times over to understand what was happening.

Hearts Abroad is a solid three-star book with a Happily Ever After worth reading and falling in love with. Perfect for rainy days, sunny beaches, and cosy evenings.
