Review: Our Kind of Love by Victoria Purman

Title: Our Kind of Love
Author: Victoria Purman
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Series: Boys of Summer #3
Publication Date: 1st November 2014
Pages: 352
Book Source: Harlequin Mira & NetGalley

Synopsis: Anna is… unexpected… unbelievable… unstoppable.

And unavailable.

Will what happened in Middle Point stay there?

Dr Anna Morelli rarely makes mistakes. But this one is big, bordering on huge. Somewhere between sunset and sunrise at the simple beachside wedding of two old friends, she’s cried in the ladies bathroom, danced to too many ABBA songs and survived the best, knock-your-socks-off one night stand in recorded history. Has she gone crazy? She’s supposed to be running from the disasters in her life, not creating more.

Award-winning journalist Joe Blake is back in Middle Point to lick his wounds after being dumped by his wife and sacked from his Sydney job on the same day. But after one incredible night with Anna, he finds he’ll need all his investigative skills to figure out why she won’t give in to their sizzling chemistry….

My Thoughts:

We started with Ry and Julia's story in Nobody But Him, followed by their best friends Lizzie and Dan in Someone Like You. In the Boys of Summer final installment we join Joe and Anna on their road to happiness. Of course there's roadblocks and wrong turns, because if there wasn't that would be kind of dull ... and Victoria Purman writes anything but dull.

Joe is Lizzie's brother and Anna, an old friend of Dan's ... they're both carrying hurt and a load of baggage but a night of alcohol-fueled-toe-curling-knock-your-socks-off-sex slowly grows into new beginnings and more toe-curling-knock-your-socks-off-sex a second chance at love.   

What I've loved about this series from the beginning is the feel of Middle Point, this fictional coastal town on the beautiful 
Fleurieu Peninsula in South Australia feels real. So real you want to live there, join the community and be part of the Ry and Julia, Dan and Lizzie, Joe and Anna circle.  

You really can't go wrong with this sexy, steamy, sweet, funny trilogy. I've loved spending time with these couples, getting to know them and care about them and I'm a little sad to say goodbye. 

But bring on May 1st because Victoria Purman has a new novel out, Only We Know, set on the wildly beautiful Kangaroo Island.

  1. I know what you mean about wanting to go live there, suddenly the south coast of Australia sounded very appealing and I hadn't given it much thought before this! Loved this story too. Looking forward to see what she does with her new one this year.

    1. love it when an author describes a setting so eloquently you can see it, smell it, taste it lol ... I want a sea change now :)

  2. Hmmmmmmmmm I am always up for some sock knocking :)

  3. I wish someone had told me that romance novels were so damn addictive, I may never have started reading them.

    1. I know right ... hope you read these Ryan. I'm reading way more romance than I used to but you ... HA ... you need an intervention ;)

  4. These sound wonderful and the perfect Sunday afternoon reads! Lovely review Teddyree.
