An impulsive trip to New York City, a heartthrob from London, and a scandalous to-do list turn a small-town girl’s life upside down in this sultry romance from the New York Times bestselling author of Truly and About Last Night.
Allie Fredericks isn’t supposed to be in Manhattan, hiding in the darkest corner of a hip bar, spying on her own mother—who’s flirting with a man who’s definitely not Allie’s father. Allie’s supposed to be in Wisconsin, planning her parents’ milestone anniversary party. Then Winston Chamberlain walks through the door, with his tailored suit, British accent, and gorgeous eyes, and Allie’s strange mission goes truly sideways.
Winston doesn’t do messy. But after a pretty stranger ropes him into her ridiculous family drama with a fake kiss that gets a little too real, he finds out that messy can be fun. Maybe even a little addicting. And as the night grows longer, Allie and Winston make a list of other wild things they could do together—and what seems like a mismatch leads to a genuine connection. But can their relationship survive as their real lives implode just outside the bedroom door?
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Madly is a standalone sequel of Ruthie Knox’s two previous works. It’s a story about 26-year old Allie Fredericks (May’s sister in Truly) and 40-year old Winston Chamberlain (Nev’s older brother in About Last Night), two unlikeable characters in their origins.
Two strangers with opposite personalities meet at a Packers bar in a serendipitous moment. Allie is spying on her mother, and Winston was sitting alone in the bar. She needed someone to make sure her mother doesn’t see her, and Winston was the closest one near her. He helped her spy on her mom, and the two spent the night getting to know each other.
