Too Damn Nice by Kathryn Freeman @KathrynFreeman1 #Review @BrookCottageBks #Giveaway #BlogTour

Thank you for joining me I'm delighted to be one of the stops on the blog tour for Too Damn Nice by Kathryn Freeman. You can catch my review today along with a fab giveaway. First of all though let's take a look at the description for the book...


Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: 1st August 2017
Publisher: Choc Lit

Nice guys don't kiss like that ...
Do nice guys stand a chance? 
Lizzie Donavue went from being the sister of his best friend to the girl Nick Templeton most wants to kiss. On her birthday, he finally summons up the courage to make his move. But it looks like Nick’s missed his chance when he discovers that Lizzie has been offered a modelling contract, which will take her away to the glamorous fashion scenes of New York and Los Angeles.

Nick is forced to watch from the sidelines as the gawky teenager he knew is transformed into Elizabeth Donavue: top model and ultimate English rose pin-up, forever caught in a whirlwind of celebrity parties with the next up-and-coming Hollywood bad boy by her side.

But then Lizzie’s star-studded life comes crashing down around her, and a guy like Nick could be just what she needs. Will she take a chance on him? Or is he just too damn nice?

It's safe to say that I wasn't expecting to feel such an emotional pull towards the story and characters. Both Lizzie and Nick have had traumatic pasts and I loved their connection. Nick is pretty much the perfect guy the way he came to Lizzie's rescue was so sweet. To the public eye Lizzie may seem like she has things together and appear to be the perfect celebrity. However behind closed doors it's a different story and this made me like her even more especially when a horrible event brings everything falling down.

The story moves smoothly and after a couple of chapters I had warmed to both Lizzie and Nick. I loved hearing the story from both perspectives and I found myself smiling at their friendship. The timing just never seems right for Nick to reveal his feelings and I really did feel for his situation.

There is a lot of heart in this story that was quite surprising to me as I possibly expected a slightly more fluffier story. However the combination of this heart warming story along with an emotional connection was perfect and made such a delightful read for me. If you are looking to just sit back and relax Too Damn Nice is the ideal solution. I couldn't wait to see how everything would turn out for Nick and Lizzie after having had such tragedy in their pasts. Kathryn Freeman has written a story that made it so easy to fall straight into the characters lives and to hope that they found their perfect ending. In Too Damn Nice there are themes of grief, love and friendship which all came together to make a gorgeous combination. This is the first book that I have read by Kathryn Freeman but after reading such a sweet and heartfelt story it definitely won't be my last.

With thanks to Brook Cottage Books & Netgalley for my copy. This is my honest and unbiased opinion.

A former pharmacist, I’m now a medical writer who also writes romance. Some days a racing heart is a medical condition, others it’s the reaction to a hunky hero.
With two teenage boys and a husband who asks every Valentine’s Day whether he has to buy a card (yes, he does), any romance is all in my head. Then again, his unstinting support of my career change proves love isn't always about hearts and flowers - and heroes come in many disguises.
