Sunny Shelly’s Review: Maid In England, by Brenda St. John Brown


Title: Maid in England

Series: The I Do Crew #1

Author: Brenda St John Brown
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: February 5, 2019

TO: The guy
who dumped me because of my career
woman hired to save yours
RE: I am
150,000% over you. 
I’m on the 11:14
train out of London, so I’ll be there by 3:00. To make this as painless as
possible, I thought it would help to establish key ground rules:
 1. No
rehashing our past relationship. Yes, we were engaged, but it’s been twelve
years and I’m over you.
  2. I’m
very good at my job and that job is to help you shed the “reclusive” part of
the whole “reclusive rock star” vibe you’ve got going on. Brace yourself.
  3. My
plan is to have this wrapped up by Friday, so save your smoldering looks until
I’m gone, please. (I assume you still smolder?) I’m immune now. See item #1.
 4. My
cousin is getting married and guess who’s a bridesmaid? Funny, huh? Almost as
funny as the fiancée you dumped because you thought she was married to her job
now saving yours.
Always a bridesmaid,
never a bride. Except almost. That one time.
P.S. Have I
mentioned I’m totally, completely 150,000% over you? 


Sunny Shelly’s Review: 3 Stars

Maid In England is the first book I’ve read by Brenda St. John Brown, and while it had a lot of potential, it fell short for me. I loved the idea of a publicist having to bring a reclusive rock star out of his shell and get him ready for a big tour, and on top of that, they were once engaged to be married. But I just didn’t feel the passion between Alastair and Remi. The pacing of this story was lagging in a lot of places, and I felt that most of the reconciliation was a “tell” rather than a “show.”

Unfortunately, this one just didn’t click for me, and I really felt like I was pushing through it for no real reason because I wasn’t invested in the couple finding their HEA.

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.

Author Bio
Brenda is a displaced New Yorker living in the English
countryside. She’s lived in the UK long enough to gain dual citizenship, but
still doesn’t understand Celsius. However, she has learned the appropriate use
of the word “pants”. And how to order a proper bacon bap/barm/buttie. Because,
well, bacon.
Brenda writes contemporary romance to make you giggle and
swoon. When she’s not writing, she enjoys hiking, running and reading. In
theory, she also enjoys cooking, but it’s more that she enjoys eating and, try
as she might, she can’t live on Doritos alone.
