Indy Rowntree's acting career isn't exactly taking off. Her agent is scraping the bottom of the barrel to find her roles – and she's just been knocked back from playing the part of a tomato. Only her friends and job at one of Melbourne's coolest bars are keeping her sane.
Irishman Luke Hunter is in Australia to escape his own problems. He has good reasons for avoiding love but he just can't seem to stay away from vivacious Indy. And then, just when things are looking up for both of them, a mutual friend starts meddling...
A witty, fast-paced love story with a wonderful cast of characters who will have you laughing out loud. 
Rating: 3 Stars

This book was a nice quick read, i really enjoy reading it. The characters were likeable, the dialogues were engaging and the ending was so adorable!

So Indy has been an aspiring actress in Australia for a while, her agent - poor Indy, has quite a rusty skills to land her a groundbreaking jobs other than ridiculous auditions. Her friends has been really supportive of her and her aspiring career.

One day, Mr. Hunter and his poor Aussie knowledge happens to stumble upon the bar, and the whole journey begun.

First of all, is it just me or that the couple on the cover looks like Chris Pine & Charlize Theron? 

Anyway, the story got a good catchy introduction, me as a reader got curious by the mystery of this curious man and Indy and her 'Bridget Jones' luck on career life. The story line was kind of mild fizz throughout, which is unfortunate as i could see this story could be more explosive (especially for the climax).

Character wise, they are distinguishable. They got a bit of awkwardness in them, perhaps they were moderately shy.. but their interactives were like watching an episode of How I Met Your Mother for some reason...

However the ending was an adorable HEA. It was believable on Indy's side, but Luke's was a bit too fantasy for me.. some readers may love it, a fairytale ending is popular within the demographic of this genre.

Are you a fairytale reader? or perhaps other genres?
