A 4.5 star contemporary rom-com by Amelia Wilde

This is a warm smooch of a tale about how first, second and sometimes even third impressions aren’t always correct. I’d describe it as the perfect ‘pick me up’ book. Its both a book you should pick up, to read, and a heart warming tale that will pick your spirits up and leave you with that feel-good factor.

Crush on you, is a funny, gentle, smoking hot, romantic comedy and is everything you didn’t know you needed. It has two of the most adorable, yet sexy, characters in Roman and Jenny. This is a couple you just won’t be able to get enough of.

At school Jenny was the awkward geeky girl, the one who had to teach herself how to fit in. Roman was the hot guy everyone wanted to notice them, and he’s not grown any less hot with age. Let’s just say he wasn’t quite the arrogant player that Jenny remembered from her high school days. In fact both main characters were incredibly easy to like and are part of what made this a truly great read.

Whilst I want to describe this as quite a ‘sweet’ romance, that’s because of how it made me feel rather than ‘heat’ levels. This has plenty of hot bedroom (and waterfall, and elsewhere) scenes. The pace was perfect, quick enough to completely hold my attention throughout but not so fast that I ever got lost. The moment I dipped my toes into this book I was just buoyed along on a journey of love, secrets, mistakes and laughter.

I really, really enjoyed this book and I’m sure you will too.


She’s my new employee. So she’s 100% off-limits.

And that’s not all.

Jenny London is the girl everyone overlooked in high school, including me. I had no idea that she’d gone from ugly duckling to brunette bombshell until the moment she stepped into my office wearing a red bikini and a smile.

If this is revenge for ignoring her in school, she’s serving it hot. And if it’s not? Doesn’t matter. The sight of her around the office is driving me wild. 

Too wild. I have a resort to save and a business to run. I need my head in the game, not tugging down the straps of her bikini.

I have to stop myself from falling. Office romances are forbidden for a reason: to protect the Bliss Resort and its legacy.

But let’s be honest…it’s already too late.


5 stars – This is a book I will not forget and would definitely read again.

4 stars – I really enjoyed this book, I might not read it again but I would definitely recommend it to others.

3 stars – This story was good but either forgettable or just very typical of its genre.

2 stars – Whilst the book was readable I either didn’t enjoy parts of the plot or just could not connect to the main characters.

1 star – This is a book I simply could not finish for reasons listed in the review.
