Sadie’s Highlander by Maeve Greyson

♥♥ 4 Hunky Highlander Stars ♥♥

Okay, so my classification of this is kind of confusing, and that’s because I don’t know where exactly it fits. Alec is a sexy highlander, and he wears sexy kilts and lives in a castle…in North Carolina. His family has been tasked by the goddesses to protect the heart stone, which is responsible for giving humans a reason to live. Kind of cheesy, but cute. They’ve been thrown from the tenth century into present time so the stone can be protected, and they’ve created this highland theme park. Enter Sadie, who is an aspiring screenwriter. She has a demon of a sister, who owns the motion picture company Sadie works for. She’s basically stomped all over by everyone except Alec and his family. Sadie and Alec

Sadie and Alec have some good chemistry, and I loved how much Alec supported her. What bothered me was how Sadie just took her sister’s shit and it took until the climax for her to stand up for herself. There was some insta-love going on too, and seriously the timeline of how their relationship developed was a little too much for me… My other issue was how Sadie learns about Alec’s origins. She was understandably skeptical when he tried explaining it to her, but then she just has this epiphany and blindly accepts everything he’s telling her.

Despite this, I still really enjoyed reading it. I love time travel in my books, and I really love sexy highlanders, so that was enough to keep me reading mostly happily. Sadie’s sister was a real bitch, had no work ethic, and basically had no respect for anyone but herself. There was enough going on in the plot that I never got bored and I loved watching Sadie come to accept herself. This was an easy and quick read; perfect for the summer!
