Always With Love – by Giovanna Fletcher

Original Cover
My own story

The blurb:

The next much-anticipated romantic chapter in Billy and Sophie's love story from bestselling author Giovanna Fletcher.

Sophie's got used to being the girlfriend of Billy Buskin, the biggest movie star in the world. Sort of.

But when she and Billy take a trip to visit his family in Los Angeles, she quickly discovers she's totally unprepared for the chaos of Hollywood, the paparazzi and Billy's controlling mother.

And when Billy extends his stay in LA, leaving Sophie to fly home to Rosefont Hill alone, it seems there's more than just miles between them.

Now Sophie must decide if they can overcome their differences for good. Because not every love story lasts the distance . . .

My Opinion:

We are back with Sophie and Billy and I couldn’t be happier. I love their story in Billy and Me, they are such a cute couple and share this unique connection. It wasn’t easy for them in the beginning, but their love is strong.

Now, some time has passed. Sophie has gotten used to being Billy Buskin’s (the movie star) girlfriend. Together they live with her mum and he helps her in her tea shop. When they go to LA to visit his family everything changes.

Sophie gets to know his big family, which is not easy, especially his mother proves to be difficult. She also has a great time with some of them though. And then Billy gets his big chance to be in a movie and he takes it. Sophie flies home alone and manages everything there. This is now testing their love. The distance between them is not easy, although the talk on the phone and write each other letters. They both start thinking about what they really want in life.

Billy is tempted by his celebrity status and Sophie sees that, sometimes in the media first. And Sophie works a lot, spends time with her mum and her mum’s fiancé Colin. Added to the picture then is Molly’s son Peter. Molly was very close to Sophie before she died and now Sophie is even more passionate about the shop. Well, Peter seems to become a great friend, can they just be friends?!

I loved how Giovanna created a story where distance and love were so close. Both Sophie’s and Billy’s feelings came across beautifully and it was wonderful to read about them again. It might seem obvious what was going to happen, but it’s all part of their lives and Giovanna also added other elements to the story, which made it more exciting. Sophie’s mum got her story and I adored reading about the mother-daughter relationship. Billy’s family also added some sparks to it all.

This book might not have the big WOW moment, but the writing is amazing, I got hooked immediately and sometimes less is more.

I would love to read about these two characters again, like five years later or something like that.
