Can’t Buy Me Love

About the book

Is it all too good to be true?

When Willow runs into her old university crush, Luke, she’s a new woman with a new look – not to mention a little bit more cash after a rather substantial inheritance. Could she be lucky enough to score a fortune and her dream man at the same time?

Then Willow meets Cal; a computer geek with a slightly odd sense of humour. They get on like a house on fire — although she soon realises that there is far more to her unassuming new friend than meets the eye …

But money doesn’t always bring happiness, and Willow finds herself struggling to know who to trust. Are the new people in her life there because they care – or is there another reason?Choc-Lit

My opinion

When Luke was first introduced I was suspicious. Suddelny Luke tells Willow that he had feelings for her back in university but he was too shy to admit it to her? But Willow falls for him (or so she thinks). After all this years they are together. I didn’t like Luke. You don’t need to be a psychologist or anything to see that he is behind something. But is it really the inheritance? She doesn’t know about the money when at the beginning of their relationship.

Then there is Cal. Ash, Will’s twin brother, introduces them and first, Will assumes Cal is gay since her brother is and he seems to be living at his flat. I really liked Cal from the beginning. He is a nice guy, is into computer stuff (I have a thing for those guys) and is fun to be around. As he is very helpful and concerned about Will’s relationship, he soon discovers that something is wrong with Luke. At first, Will wouldn’t see it. But she gets more and more attracted to Cal and together they plan to expose Luke.

It’s a predictable story but I liked it anyway. The writing is well and there were times when I had to laugh or at least smirk. At the end of my review you’ll find some quotations.

I also liked the characters – well, except for Luke, but he was a nice contrast to the others. Will and Cal are such a nice couple and he is way better for her than Luke! I would like to read more about Will and Cal.


As you can see I especially like references to Doctor Who.
