Review: The First Time We Met by Pippa Croft

British romance author Phillipa Ashley has veered into new territory with The First Time We Met, volume one of a steamy new trilogy set at Oxford University. Lauren Cusack is the daughter of a US Senator and has decided to study abroad for a short while to help mend her broken heart. Her plans take a surprising turn when she meets roguish English aristocrat Alexander Hunt and a steamy, but heartbreaking relationship begins.

What had the potential to be a fun, guilty pleasure read was let down by a clunky, clumsy narrative and a heroine who seemed more arrogant and ignorant than naive. Sadly, this one was not a winner for me, though some of the love scenes are scorching hot.

Not really recommended.
