The Startling Inaccuracy of the First Impression by Amanda Radley

I couldn’t put this book down.

What was the book about?
Verity Forsyth is retired. She spends her days with her nephew and planning dinner parties for her friends. Life got ultimately more interesting when Katie Ross moves into the flat below.

At first, Verity is annoyed by her new neighbour’s callous behaviour in regards to her motorcycle being parked in the garden. Still, when an unfortunate event happens, both women are thrown together, and when they get to know each other better, they are more alike than they first thought.

Can these women put aside their differences and move forward with a friendship that has the possibility of much more?

Featured Tropes 
Romance, age-gap, enemies to lovers, 

Book Strengths
What an incredible story and honestly it’s probably my new Amanda Radley favourite. The book flowed so effortlessly, and I couldn’t believe it when I had finished. 

This is probably the first Radley book that I would be alright if there weren’t a follow-up. Don’t get me wrong it would be a massive perk if there was, but this book finished just beautifully, and I was left with all the feels. 

I loved Katie, she was tenacious, and she hid her vulnerability of past hurts. The reader could feel her sorrow at times. She was a wonderful character to read, and as her walls came down, she became my favourite character.

I had the biggest crush on Verity throughout the book. The way she changes throughout the book was excellent, and I was swooning all over the place. Talk about the perfect woman!

Character Chemistry
The chemistry between Verity and Katie is slow to start as they are at odds with one another, but as the book progresses, you see the spark, and it forms into something beautiful. 

As with all Amanda Radley books, the sex scenes are fade to black, but you still get a feel for the emotional and sexual chemistry during the build-up to the sex scenes.

Heat Rating
Two flames

Wrap up
A remarkable book which is no surprise with Amanda Radley holding the pen. This is definitely my favourite Radley book to date, and I can’t wait to start it all over again. Not got plans for the weekend? Well, you do now!
