Cocktails in Chelsea – by Nikki Moore

Original Cover
My own copy
The blurb:

Fun & flirty short story from the exciting new chick lit author Nikki Moore!

Made in Chelsea?

Nathan Black is on a mission to prove himself. His family may be upper class and his cousin Matt might be a famous music producer, but he's going to make it on his own. So as soon as he has enough money set aside, he's quitting his bar-tending job on the King's Road and opening up his own cocktail bar. He hasn't got time for love, and definitely not with the spoilt Chelsea Princesses who flirt with him shamelessly every night. But is there something a bit different about the pretty blonde who's just walked in?

Bournemouth girl Sofia Gold is reluctantly visiting old childhood friends in London for Easter weekend. Keenly aware she's not part of their glamorous world, she's more comfortable riding a surfboard than wearing designer dresses and towering heels… although she's always had a soft spot for cocktails.

It's never really bothered Sofia that she's 'one of the boys,' and that her romantic experiences have been amazingly unspectacular, so when she meets gorgeous Nathan, why does she find herself faking an accent and pretending to be a London socialite? It can't be anything to do with impressing him, can it? After all, she's only in the capital for a few days…

But one impulsive kiss later, they both find themselves wishing for things they didn't know they wanted.

Spring in Chelsea – will love blossom?

My Opinion:

*Book provided by the publisher on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

Cocktails in Chelsea is book 3 in the #LoveLondon series. I was very excited for this one, because the title is great, the blurb sounds awesome and Nikki is a talented writer – the perfect combination.
The story follows Bournemouth girl Sophia Gold, who finds herself having cocktails in Chelsea with two childhood friends. These two girls are really different from her. Usually Sophia wears skinny jeans, high heels and a nice top when she goes out, but not now. She now has to be part of their glamorous world. At a fancy bar on King’s Road she meets waiter Nathan. They instantly had a connection, even though they didn’t show it. Sophia finds herself faking an accent and other things.

Nathan is hot, confident and very attractive and he wants to make it on his own, without his family’s help. As soon as he has earned enough money, he wants to open his own bar. He definitely has book boyfriend potential ;)

Sophia sees herself going back to the bar regularly and they get to spend more and more time together. I liked their teasing and flirting, Nikki found a wonderful way to describe these scenes.
When they finally kiss, they suddenly realise what they actually feel and it makes them both think about what could be.
And then she ends up at his place…
I won’t say more here!!! ;)

Nikki has a real talented to play around with names, black and gold?! GENIOUS!!!

This story is fun, flirty, fresh, exciting and very sweet! There is a real message behind it and I enjoyed every second of it. The storyline has a beautiful flow and a lot of spark.
I can’t wait for the next book in this series!!!
