The First Time We Met by Pippa Croft

The First Time We Met (Oxford Blue, #1)The First Time We Met by Pippa Croft
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I chose this book to read when I was well into romance last year [don't know why] but you get fads in books, and I hit on this one on Net galley so approached the publishers Penguin Books (UK) who granted it to me to read and review.

This was pure escapism for me, balls, dances and gowns.

Its a long time since I read such a book so it took me a while to get into it again.

I found one thing annoying, it was all the designer name dropping on ball gowns.

It was an OK read

I will go onto read book 2 though.

The First Time We Met is the first novel in the sizzling new Oxford Blue romance series from Pippa Croft.

Senator's daughter Lauren Cusack is leaving Washington behind for the dreaming spires of Oxford University - and she's ready for a challenge. Now a fully-fledged Master's student, Lauren is determined to make the most of every single minute.

But then she meets Alexander Hunt, and everything changes.

A devastatingly handsome English aristocrat, Alexander is as brooding and enigmatic as they come. Lauren tries to resist his advances, but he has his sights clearly set on the young American, and what Alexander wants, he gets.

Caution soon gives way to mind-blowing passion and Lauren is drawn into Alexander's privileged world of glamour and status. But all that glitters is not gold - for Alexander is a man with a dark past, and desire may not be enough to conquer all else . . .
