Review: Eternally North by Tillie Cole
Publication Date: 6th May 2013
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?
My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
Funny, sexy and engrossing. I loved this tale of a proper northern lass and her BFF striking out in their new lives in Canada and falling in love along the way. It was over the top at times. At times I wanted to boot Tudor in the balls. At times I wanted to lock Tink in a cupboard and deny him access to glitter. And, at times, I really wanted Natasha to be a bit less brassy... But I really enjoyed it and really hope there is a follow-on.
A perfect winter read!
