This is a fun, light, fast read that romance fans are sure to enjoy. Hot British Boyfriend has plenty of humor, glamour, and travel to exciting new places. It's well paced, not spending too much time setting everything up but quickly jumping into Ellie's semester abroad. Ellie can be frustrating at times in her inability to see what's really going on, but it also makes her relatable to anyone who's ever discovered their own blind spots. It's a refreshing example of how travel can lead to personal growth, especially in boosting self esteem and discovering things about yourself you didn't even know. It's also nice to have positive models of strong, supportive friendships and no bullying or "queen bee" behavior.
