What’s Love Got to Do with It is a romantic comedy about Kayla thirty and something years old a city girl from New York. She is a columnist spending time writing about a nightlife in New York contributing in it and telling the story from a firsthand.
Her boss sends her on a cover assignment in Arkansas. Kayla is devastated but she must obey and spend a few months in the small town where everyone knows each other and where aren’t cocktails. What she would do?
Day by day, the citizens of the town and their mayor will make miracle and chaos in her life.
Anna Premoli’s writing style is almost the same as Sophie Kinsella funny, exciting and passionate with some explicit sex scenes.
Some funny moment on the first page, I laugh out loud and I feel in the same way almost every morning with my urge for the caffeine shot:
“Unfortunately, the cup is so hot that I almost drop it as soon as my fingers make contact. Despite its inviting aroma, I decide to put it on the desk and avoid burning my stomach with it for the moment – I do desperately need a caffeine shot, but I do not need third-degree burns.”
Kayla is a city girl, fashionable and wild. She needs one night stands kind of men and it last literally one night. Kayla likes New York and everything that got with life there. Poor Kayla I totally related with her I hated visiting rural areas in the past, but not now.
“My expression immediately becomes less cheerful. The mere word ‘Arkansas” gives me a weird uncomfortable feeling in the pit of my stomach …and no amount of ginger tea is going to make it go away.”
The first expression when she meets Greyson, the mayor:
“I need to force myself to stop staring at him the way an alcoholic would stare at a bottle of good whiskey and try and focus back on my actual problem.”
“Glancing over at him and his backside, if I’m being totally honest. I’m starting to think that it ought to be designated a national monument. If we can’t do that, we can at least declare it to be one of Herber Springs’ protected species. You don’t see asses like that every day… They ought to patent the damn thing.”
The hilarious scene I experienced reading this book is:
“It gets better and better,” he murmurs and ruffles his hair with his hand. It’s so unfair that men almost always look sexier after they do that. It never happens to me- if I ruffle my hair, I end up looking like a demented porcupine, at best.”
I must admit didn’t know what is a porcupine and I googled and then I laughed till tears didn’t come and my stomach ache.
There were many deep and some of them are just interesting thoughts which I want to share with you:
“Nobody is perfect, and there’s nothing you can do about it. It’s life.”
“I’m not used to people being kind to me anymore, which is why I’m always suspicious when someone offers to help me. But this time I don’t want to be suspicious.”
“Do you know what they say? The things worth fighting for never come easy.”
“This man is so good that I almost want to corrupt him.”
“Each of us has to live with our insecurities, I’m just better than average at hiding mine…”
I have more quotes but it’s not my intention to be boring in the opposite that is the evidence how much I enjoy in this book.
I recommend it to everyone who likes Sophie Kinsella style of writing.
