✱✱Book Review✱✱ Highland Games by Evie Alexander


A fiery heroine, a Scottish god, a cabin, a castle, and enough heat to warm the coldest Scottish winter…

Highland Games is an unputdownable, enemies-to-lovers, romantic comedy, with sparkle and sizzle and a guaranteed happy ending. This steamy, witty, debut from Evie Alexander will have you laughing, swooning, and staying up way past your bedtime...

Perfect for fans of Sally ThorneTalia Hibbert, Sophie Kinsella, and Helen Hoang. If you’re looking for a riotous romantic comedy with plenty of heat, then Highland Games is for you!

♥♥♥ Welcome to Kinloch, and the hottest winter Scotland’s ever seen. ♥♥♥

Zoe’s always played it safe, just as her parents wanted. But when her great-uncle dies and leaves her a ramshackle cabin in the Scottish Highlands, she decides it’s time to change her life.

Upping sticks seems like a good idea in her cosy flat in London, but the reality is very different. There’s no electricity or running water, the roof leaks and there’s no front door. If that wasn’t bad enough, she’s moved up in the depths of winter and her scorching hot neighbour wants her out.

Rory’s got a fifty thousand tonne problem. If he can’t make Kinloch castle profitable, he’s out of a job. He needs a clear head, but there’s someone living in the cabin he saw as his own and she’s turned his world upside down.

Rory needs Zoe out of Scotland, and out of his life. The trouble is, she has no intention of leaving.

Let the games begin…

Momma Says: 3 stars⭐⭐⭐

Highland Games has plenty of goodness to keep those pages turning. We have a grumpy Gus in Rory, which is one of my favorite types of leading man. Then, there's Zoe, who is determined, or maybe stubborn is a better description - anyway, she's looking for a change. Now, I'm not sure that cabin would be my first choice for a change, but it sure made for some laugh-out-loud moments, and the enemies to lovers romance had its share of the laughs as well. There are also some fun twists and steamy goodness. The romance feels like a slow burn, and that's an accomplishment with such a fast-paced story. And I'll stop there so I don't give anything away, and I'll finish by saying if you enjoy sexy men in kilts and the women they butt heads with, you'll want to read this one.
