Book Review: "Sexy Berkeley" by Dani Lovell
'A long-distance relationship with a hot American businessman is the last thing on Beatrice Hart's mind when the day from hell ends with her drink-booking a last minute escape to glamorous Southern California.
With Bea's firm belief that long distance never works, will she ever consider that that an exhilarating introduction at 35,000 feet could lead to anything more than a steamy holiday romance?
Daniel Berkeley is the irresistible, delectable, smoking hot bachelor, determined to make it happen.

This debut novel by author Dani Lovell, was fantastic! It had me laughing, crying and cheering on Daniel and Bea. It was sexy, without being overly raunchy, funny, romantic and a little sad at times. The author pulls you into Bea, Clare & Tilly's friendship making you feel like you have been friends with them forever. I felt like I had known those girls for years. I felt like I was reading about my own girlfriends and I. Daniel, oh Daniel...what can I say? He was sexy as hell, without being cocky about it and very sweet/likeable from the beginning. I was prepared for him to be like most men in romance novels you read nowadays but he was a breath of fresh air. Kind, gentle/sweet (when needed), funny and down right naughty when the moment was right. The banter between Bea and Daniel was amusing. It's what really pulled me into the story. I enjoyed how they genuinely enjoyed being around each other, even when there was no naughtiness involved. Usually, when I read a book and the main characters are head over heels for each other right away, it puts me off. In Bea and Daniel's case it just works.The chemistry between them is so tangible and believable.There were a few times that Daniel's dialect slipped to being more British, when he was born and raised in America; But that did not take away from the story. The storyline is easy to follow and the author's writing reminds me of books I've read by Sophie Kinsella and Miriam Keyes. I also enjoyed the ending bit with Tilly's thoughts Luke and her. It was a bit of a cliffhanger (their "story" is kind of a side plot to the main story) but I'm excited to learn more about what is going to happen in the next novel. It was so much more than just an "erotic novel." It would be a fantastic beach read and I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for light, fast paced, fun read
