RRR presents... It Started With A Book by Camilla Isley - REVIEW!

Hi there readers!
Here's hoping you had a happy 4th and that your weekend plans are shaping up nicely. Today, I'm playing host to a stop along the Rachel's Random Resources tour starring the latest from author Camilla Isley. It's a romcom with a healthy dose of the fantastical that really brings readers dreams to life. Don't believe me? Well then, let's get between the pages...

About the book...
Lose yourself in Lakeville Hills in this gorgeous new romance from bestselling author Camilla Isley...

When she’s ghosted by yet another Tinder match, Leighton swears off dating for life. Who needs apps and blind dates when she has the perfect-in-every-way (apart from being fictional) heroes of her beloved romance novels?

That night Leigh finds a second-hand book on her TBR pile, which transports her to the small-town of Lakeville Hills, where the heroines wear shorty-shorts and the men drink bourbon. And as Leigh drifts off to sleep, she dreams of billionaire cowboy Killian St Clair, who could win a gold medal for smouldering and bicep flexing.

For a while, Leigh finds it easier to stomach misogynistic supervisors, newly coupled friends, and extravagant bridesmaid duties knowing she can return to Lakeville Hills each evening. Until one day, she wakes up to find she’s brought a bit of Lakeville Hills back with her: the impossible sexy and entirely implausible Killian St Clair is in her apartment.

Now Leigh must help Killian navigate the real world. But as she gets to know the man behind the trope, can she keep her heart safe, or does she risk falling in love with her book boyfriend in real life?


Oh my goodness.
Could it be?
Could it really happen?
The man of your dreams just walks right off the page and into your life with nary a wicked queen in site, nor a magical spell uttered, and you're a perfect match? 🥰  Color me skeptical, but I'll gladly suspend my beliefs to enjoy this tale!

Leigh was a darling leading lady, but she wasn't a damsel in distress either. She needed an escape from her everyday struggles, and when a curious paperback shows up with amazing properties that seem too good to be true, you can't help but wish alongside her. When the dreams become more than dreams, you can't help but want it to last, but worry it won't. The thing is, it's not just improbable, it seems unlikely, but aren't those the same worries, in a matter of speaking, that every day couples encounter too? So perhaps the questionable factors aren't whether his existence is real, but if their connection can carry from page to reality. 

Buckle in for a roller coaster of emotion, and be prepared to fall in love with another fictional boyfriend because whether Killian or Oswald,  the man has talent, charisma, charm, and of so much heart. A great read for Contemporary Romance readers, and those that like a little bookish magic in their love stories.
