One Summer Weekend – Juliet Archer

One summer weekend can change everything … 

Alicia Marlowe’s life as an executive coach is well under control – until she meets her new client, Jack Smith. Jack’s reputation precedes him and Alicia knows immediately that he spells trouble. Not least because he reminds her of someone else – a man who broke her heart and made her resolve never to lower her guard again.

Taking Jack on as a client is a risk, but one that Alicia decides to take for the good of her career. As long as she keeps him in his place, she might just make it through unscathed. But Jack has other ideas – including a ‘business’ trip to the Lake District. One summer weekend with him is all it takes to put Alicia’s carefully organised world in a spin …



My review

When you look at the cover and you see the clear blue sky and it’s as if you can feel the sun on your face, you hear the birds sing and you can smell the flowers. It seems like there is no care in the world, but you know that with this kind of books, the road to a happy end is often bumpy and winding. Here it’s no different. After a game of attraction and rejection, a few misunderstandings and the much needed reconciliation, two people are reunited and live happily ever after.
That’s what I like about this genre. No matter how many obstacles, love always wins.
A nice read where the coachee learns from the coach and vice versa. 4 stars.

Thank you, Juliet Archer and Ruby Fiction.
