Billy and Me - Giovanna Fletcher

Original Cover
My own copy

The blurb:

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?

My opinion:

In this wonderful story two opposite worlds collide and become one, or at least try to become one.

Sophie May is just an ordinary girl from a small village in Kent. She works in a teashop and loves reading and baking. She doesn’t go out much and is really introverted. Everybody loves her, she is caring and helps where she can. BUT, she has a secret, which is coming out sooner or later, but not in a pleasant way.

Then something exciting is happening in her little village. A film crew is going to produce Pride and Prejudice. In the shop she meets Billy Buskin, not knowing that he is a big film star. He asks her out and they fall in love.

Bill is gorgeous, caring and very talented. Will her past and his profession be to much for their relationship?

Sophie’s world is turned upside down. She moves to London with Billy, happy to be by his side. However, she now sees into his world and doesn’t really understand it. Their love for each other is there on every single page of the book, but they have to deal with the press and media.
After a while it is just too much for her and she leaves...
What will Billy do? Is he still the same person she got to know? Find out ...

The story is great, full of emotions and real life!!! Gorgeous and romantic <3
