Our Review

“You really don’t know much about me, do you?”
“Emerson. No one knows much about you.”

We loved this book! This is our first book by Kelsey Humphreys, and what a wonderfully delightful opposite attract romance it was! And talk about opposites! Samantha and Emerson couldn’t be more different. A chatty, larger-than-life extrovert, and a grumpy nonsyllabic introvert. It could never work, right? Never say never. If, like us, you love this trope, check out this book because this author pulled it off splendidly. We felt it all!

‘Once minute he’s beaming salty sex rays at me with his grin, the next he’s as cold as a blizzard blowing right out the door. ‘

A true grumpy sunshine (they don’t come grumpier or sunnier than Sam and Emerson) romance with a workplace vibe, which delivered the perfect balance of humour – oh wow did we laugh out loud at times. This book had it all! Chemistry, tension, emotion, and passion! Not to mention the beautiful blend of friendship and sisterhood with Sam’s sister. These four sisters – though very different from each other, were great support and a good laugh when Sam needed it. And did she need it! Who knew what the gorgeous Emerson was thinking half the time!

‘So, where I am too much, Emerson Clark is…he’s a freaking void, that’s what he is. If I’m sunshine, he’s a cloud. He’s a black hole.’

Samantha Canton is the extroverted daughter of the head of Canton Cards, who is off on a one-month business trip to Europe- or a schmoozalapooza as Sam calls it. When plans change, her traveling companion becomes the uptight British CEO, Emerson Clark. Not much intimidates the outgoing, no-filter Sam, but the cold Mr. Clark sure does. She’s a babbling mess around him.

‘He’s staring at me, blinking, like his brain could only keep up with maybe a third of what I just projectiled out so fast, as if speed talking is an Olympic sport and I’m going for gold.’

Sam decides, with the help of her sisters, to set in motion ‘Operation thaw Mr. Frosty’ in the hope she and the closed-off Emerson can become friends.

‘I’d rather be lonely than be a scared, watered-down version of myself.’

Introverted Emerson’s entire itinerary for the next month is in the hands of the most extroverted of extroverted, over-the-top sweethearts you could find. How will they survive one another?

‘Don’t ever dress yourself down for anyone.”

Easy breezy meets moody broody in this fun frolicking, though at times painfully real emotional romance. The banter is spot on, the romance is heart-gripping, and the chemistry is brilliant. What an introduction!! We need more of this series. We can’t wait for the next book!

“This is real, Emerson. I want you. Now look me in my eyes and try to tell me you don’t want me too.”


If you’ve ever been told you’re too much…

Samantha Canton feels your pain. She knows she is, well, a lot. It’s been a rough year, to put it mildly, so she is overjoyed to find out she gets to go on her dream work trip to Europe. But she’s not going alone. She’ll be crossing the pond with the company’s CFO, Emerson Clark.

Icy Emerson, as the industry calls him, is logical, serious and quiet. He likes solitude, the color gray, rain and hot tea – he is British, after all.

And he cannot stand Samantha in all her extra, southern, chatty, upbeat, neon-dress-wearing glory.

No problem, she’s never met someone she couldn’t befriend.

Until Now.

Commence nervous verbal diarrhea.

And commence the ultimate Grumpy/Sunshine, Billionaire, Enemies to Lovers, Slow Burn Boss Romance with rich characters and a payoff that will leave you absolutely giddy.

This is a steamy, full-length standalone adult contemporary romance. Prepare for Manhattan, London, Paris, surprise twists, laugh-out-loud banter, a happily ever after, and a sisters group text thread you’ll wish you could join. This is the second Heartlanders book but can be read on its own.

“Love can be a fulfilling, enchanting thing, but it can be a thief, too. It can drain you, suck you dry, strip you bare. I decided that I would never give it a taste. It wasn’t worth it.”
