Falling in love with Gil was never Sophie’s plan, but the French mountain air, the grumpiest llama ever and her boyfriend’s loving—if liberated— family might just change her mind.

Sophie Smith—actress, influencer, in a close personal relationship with her blender— finds herself on a French mountain with a grumpy llama, a boyfriend with a bad case of commitment phobia and his sexually liberated parents.

In between getting chased around the farm by angry goats, dealing with his beautiful ex-girlfriend and fending off a Frenchman, she’s also having an existential crisis.

All she needs to do is get her boyfriend to stop quivering in fear at the L word, teach that llama to snuggle and work out what she actually wants to do with her life, then everything will be fine. Right?

Sometimes love isn’t enough, but what if it is?

I love the work of Katy Hunter and couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book. I’m glad I did. This was a great premise for a story and there’s a llama. I mean, that’s original–a grumpy llama! I breezed through this story and did root for the characters to find their happy ending.

Sophie is a bit of a mess. She wants her boyfriend to admit he loves her and he’s not ready. There’s the glare of the spotlight and the glitz of Hollywood in the way, too. It’s not the easiest way to keep a relationship going. She’s relatable, but her push-pull with Gil could be a bit over the top. Then there’s Gil. He’s not sure he’s ready to admit he loves her, and he’s scared of strong commitment. He’s very relatable, too. It’s hard to be in a relationship where your every move is scrutinized. But these are two younger characters, and their immaturity does show through. That’s not always a bad thing, but it’s something to mention.

The romance sizzles and the connection does shine through. If you’re looking for a book for the modern era, a romance for the current times, then this is the one you’re looking for. Check it out!
