Feel-Good Romance with a Dash of Steam: Mr. Bloomsbury Book Review

Louise Bay
Release Date: March 8

He’s cold, rude, and undeniably arrogant.

That’s how Andrew Blake’s best friends describe him.

Bad luck for me that I’m his new assistant.

Nothing I do is good enough.

The more I try and please him, the more he ignores me.

I’m beginning to wonder if there’s a heart in that tall, hard, gorgeous body of his.

After work I’m complaining about him to my new best friend—the bartender at the pub near the office.

Guess who’s seated behind me and has heard every gripe, grumble and grievance?

By the look in Andrew’s eye, I can’t tell if I’m going to get fired or kissed.

Louise Bay always writes sexy romance you can’t stop reading until the last page. Mr., Mayfair introduced me to his hot British Hero series, and I loved every word. The same formula applies to Mr. Bloomsbury:

Hot British Hero

Billionaire/Millionaire Romance

American Heroine living in London

What’s not to like? Unlike Mayfair, Bloomsbury didn’t explain the significant of the
“Mr. Title.”

In the latest installment, Andrew Blake wants to establish his grandmother’s legacy magazine, Verity, Inc., back to its former glory. Currently the new owners publish celebrity gossip – think Page Six. As a business owner, Andrew is laser focus and extremely devoted to bringing the mag into the black. He wants to buy the magazine back however the current owner – Goode doesn’t want to sell it to him. Its personal.

Sofia Rossi, an Italian American, living in London armed with an MBA is desperately seeking a job to help pay her mom’s surgery and she wants the help from her estranged father. Sofia is driven, ambitious and smart and I love how she “landed” her new job as Andrew’s personal assistant.

Mr. Bloomsbury fell short for me because I had no connection or sense of reference of the title to the story. After a quick google search, I learned Bloomsbury is the publishing mecca of London much like Fifth Avenue is to fashion in NYC. So, after I finish the book I understand the importance of Verity, Inc. to the storyline.

What I wanted was a little more angst. I really wanted something MORE and SHOCKING to explain why Andrew insisted on his DO NOT DISTURB from 6am to 12noon. Honestly, I was thinking he was on the spectrum and need this time to start his day. Especially when his behavior is so different outside the office with Sofia.

I loved how Sofia was a great assistant, business equal in Andrew’s mind. He really respected her business acumen, and this is why the story moves from OK to a Good Read.

As expected, the sexy times were equally hot and steamy. Louise Bay does know how to write good sex scenes.

If you are seeking a feel-good romance with some family drama and steamy sex, Mr. Bloomsbury will not disappoint.
