    I have read all of Jo s books so far and this one shows how far she has come as an author albeit this is only her third novel Fixed Term Love is about a girl called Vanessa who is in debt and offered the chance to clear her money troubles by becoming the hired girlfriend of the very rich and famous Josh for 6 months Josh wants to get his mother off his back as he has been constantly pressured for years to settle down In having Vanessa around he thinks he ll be able to ease the pressure for a I have read all of Jo s books so far and this one shows how far she has come as an author albeit this is only her third novel Fixed Term Love is about a girl called Vanessa who is in debt and offered the chance to clear her money troubles by becoming the hired girlfriend of the very rich and famous Josh for 6 months Josh wants to get his mother off his back as he has been constantly pressured for years to settle down In having Vanessa around he thinks he ll be able to ease the pressure for a bit However, perhaps inevitably, they start to have feelings for one another Whilst there have been similar stories in the past poor girl meets rich prince Iles manages to inject lots of originality and excitement into the story I particularly enjoyed the beach party scene with a certain famous super model The story zips along and the writing style is fluid and smooth whilst capturing your attention throughout.I won t spoil things for others but this is a terrific romantic read with enough ups and downs to keep you guessing whilst leaving you with some great feel good moments I particularly liked the references throughout to self published authors and Vanessa s struggles to get her first book written a sly nod perhaps to the authors own experiences A well written and thoroughly entertaining read

    Jumping into Fixed Term Love was like greeting an old friend The book isn t part of a series so I hadn t met the characters before, but I just love Jo Iles writing style and found myself instantly lulled into the story.Having previously read Jessie Slaymaker s Non Existent Love Life sequel publishing on 9th December , I was familiar with Ms Iles work and had no qualms about starting something new from her The evening I decided to crack open the book, I was feeling a little under the weather Jumping into Fixed Term Love was like greeting an old friend The book isn t part of a series so I hadn t met the characters before, but I just love Jo Iles writing style and found myself instantly lulled into the story.Having previously read Jessie Slaymaker s Non Existent Love Life sequel publishing on 9th December , I was familiar with Ms Iles work and had no qualms about starting something new from her The evening I decided to crack open the book, I was feeling a little under the weather so took a cup of tea to bed and planned on reading a few chapters before turning in early My plan went to pot as I did not could not put the book down until I reluctantly turned the last page some hours later.Character wise, Vanessa is highly readable She s funny, a little awkward and develops before your eyes, keeping the reader onside at all times Josh is, as you would expect, a little closed off but completely endearing with his lingering looks and occasional meaningful comments It was the pair s first meeting, which comes fairly early, that got me hooked on the story and I knew I was in for a gem of a swoony, quirky love story.Put simply, Fixed Term Love is one of those books you relax into It soothes your troubles, makes you forget the world around you and is the perfect tonic for any romance reader s soul

    This is a sweet and well paced read, rich in characters that are likeable and believable and that s really the strength of any romance novel Unanswered questions about sexual harassment law and the pros and cons of stirring risotto aside, this is a great book
