Smart Girl by Rachel Hollis

Synopsis from Amazon:

Brilliant designer Miko Jin is a hopeless romantic. She’s spent most of her life falling in love over and over again…with the men she finds in the pages of her favorite novels.

When Miko meets Liam Ashton, it’s love at first sight. At least, for her. Sure, the two of them are polar opposites, and yes, he seems to be dating someone new each week. But Miko knows what true love is and that you can’t rush it—after all, what she lacks in real-world experience, she makes up for in book smarts. With novels as her guide, and her best friends by her side, she knows she can get Liam to love her back. But just like any good romance novel, fate has a few plot twists in store. Will Miko get her own happy ending? Will she find the strength to stand up for what she deserves even if it means breaking her own heart?

My review:

This turned out to be a very enjoyable romance. I smiled, giggled and even had a little tear over the antics of the young and likable Miko. She might be naïve, but she is driven, successful, and intelligent and a hopeless romantic who believes that love should happen just like it does in all the books she reads. And why not? Even if she does have to help it along a little.

Miko is helplessly in with her best friend’s brother Liam. There stands on of her problems, as she knows her best friend Max is most likely going to kill her when she finds out. But the biggest hurdle she has to get over is Liam himself. Liam is the Viking God in Miko’s eyes and can’t do no wrong and although all her friends warn her she really is blind to the car crash of a heartache that is heading her way.
This book is light hearted, romantic and uplifting and I am so glad I have had the privileged to read this book. It really has made me smile on those dark wintery nights. I have a real appreciation for the beautiful friendships in this book and the support the characters all give each other.

Thank you very much to Rachel Hollis and Netgalley for allowing me to read this lovely book in exchange for an honest review.

My rating: 4/5
