Review ~ The Perfect Bargain by Jessa McAdams

~ Categories ~ Contemporary Romance

American lass seeks brawny Scot...

As if being newly single isn't brutal enough, Sloane Chatfield's friends are getting obnoxious about setting her up. When Sloane insists she's waiting for a certain sexy fictional Highlander to come along, her friends surprise her with a trip to Scotland to find her a new boyfriend. She'd rather have a root canal. But if she can find a Highland hunk to "break her heart" before her friends arrive...

In a remote Highland village, Galen Buchanan is struggling to keep the family pub afloat. Everything is falling apart, he's running out of money, and now there's an opinionated American lass parked at his best table, driving him mad. But then Sloane asks Galen to be her pretend Highland boyfriend...and offers him enough money to save the pub. It's only for a few days, he figures. What's the worst that could happen?

I loved the blurb of this story and I could definitely relate to Sloane and what she was going through with the breakup and her interactions with her well meaning girlfriends. I think that Sloane's girlfriends characters were hysterical because they reminded me of some of my friends when we are together.

Galen came across very rough and old school with a "she doesn't fit in" attitude much like how a true Scot would towards some Americans. I can say this since I lived there and experienced what they think about some of us. I would have liked to of seen Galen's character more developed.

There are parts of the book that didn't work for me because I wanted more meat to the story. It was a fun fast read but for me I would have liked more depth.
