Review: Eternally North by Tillie Cole

Credit: Goodreads
3 Stars

Natasha Munro is your typical twenty eight year old girl, well, your typical twenty eight year old Geordie: curvy, fun and a whole load of fab-u-lous. Her life is all going to plan — good job, great friends, close family and a loving boyfriend — until an unexpected event turns everything on its head.

Nursing a broken heart and decked head to toe in tasselled chaps and rhinestones, Natasha and her flamboyant fairy of a gay best friend, Tink, uproot from their Northern nest, throw caution to the wind and embark on a new life together in Canada — the land of Rocky mountains, Maple Syrup, oh, and an ‘in-between movies’ Hollywood mega-star.

Enter infamous bad-boy of the big screen, Tudor North.

Bonafide hunk and actor-extraordinaire.

Tudor is big, brooding and gorgeous and is harbouring a deep secret. Tudor’s cold and intimidating demeanour successfully keeps everyone at bay, that is everyone but a certain Ms Munro. It soon becomes clear, what with her smart mouth and lusciously ample arse, that Natasha proves more than a match for the emotionally distant star.

Will Natasha and Tink settle into their new life abroad?

Will Natasha ever find her fairytale happy ending?

Can a movie star and an ordinary girl ever really make it work?

Or will the secrets lurking in Tudor`s past threaten her chance at happiness?

Addictive, hilarious and heart warming. A fast paced comedic journey of self discovery, unyielding friendship and of course, a suitable dose of slap and tickle.

Warning: contains a foul-mouthed voluptuous Brit, a self-named 'Friggin' Fantastic Fairy’ and an abundance of bulging muscles and tattoos.

My thoughts; I enjoyed this story but I was now WOW'd by it. At some points I felt like I had read it before and at others I was really into it and loving the characters. 

This book was recommended to me as 'hilariously funny', but I found it mildly amusing at certain parts and actual out loud giggle worthy at others. I think it is a matter of your own personality. I think the main issue I had was the believe-ability at certain parts. Would this person say this or react this way? Is it plausible for these people to come together this quickly with barely having had a real conversation? Does it make sense that I just read 50% of the book before there is any mention of the heroine having a pretty significant medical condition? I think the concept of the story was spot on but the author was lacking with the PUNCH. 

I really did enjoy the story and I read it quite quickly. It kept me entertained even when I was having the "snobby reader" moments from the previous paragraph. I did see that this book is listed as Book One. but I see no mention of a book two. The way this book ends I feel that it could be left to stand on its own. However, the author did leave an opening to write more if she chooses. I am on the fence as to whether I would continue with the series if/when she chooses to write another book.
