Excess All AreasExcess All Areas by Mandy Baggot

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Freya had the worst birthday ever. She's on her way to meet her long-term boyfriend, Russel, for lunch but when she gets there, she overhears him asking the bartender - "I wonder if you've seen my girlfriend, I'm supposed to be meeting her here. She's a large girl, you know, with brown hair and glasses - sort of ordinary looking and probably wearing jeans."


Which girl would like to know that her boyfriend feels that way about her? Especially on her birthday? Obviously, it sucks. So in a state of distress, Freya takes off to a Greek island where her best friend Emma lives, hoping to drown her sorrows and heal. However, Freya didn't expect her friend's tiny Greek island to be invaded Nicholas Kaden, a hollywood superstar, who was shooting some scenes for his new film,along with the rest of cast. Despite Freya's initial hesitation and doubts, something grows between this ordinary girl and the Hollywood star.


This is a fun tale of unexpected romance. Freya is a strong, witty woman with a lot of spunk and you cannot help but admire her for it! She's stands up for her friends and what she believes in. While Freya and Nicholas don't seem like the ideal pair at first, they have a lot more in common than they (or others) realize. Their personalities, while different, balance each other out and you can't help but fall a little in love with Nicholas. Each comes into the relationship with their own past & baggage that no one knows about, they face a lot of hurdles along the way and not everyone is on their side but it all works out in the end.


A surprising, happy and thoroughly enjoyable read about finding love when you least expect it!
