Dante's Girl By: Courtney Cole (Review)

Hi everybody! Hope you're all having a good weekend! I just want to thank Kismet Book Touring for letting me participate in this tour, and I'm glad to share with you my review of Courtney Cole's Novel. 


Blurb
I have spent every summer since I was ten years old with my father in London. Every summer, since I was ten years old, has been uneventful and boring.
Until this year.

And this year, after a freak volcanic eruption strands me far from home, I have learned these things:

1. I can make do with one outfit for three days before I buy new clothes.
2. If I hear the phrase, “You’re not in Kansas anymore, Toto,” even one more time, I might become a homicidal maniac.
3. I am horribly and embarrassingly allergic to jellyfish.
4. I am in love with Dante Giliberti, who just happens to be the beautiful, sophisticated son of the Prime Minister of a Mediterranean paradise.
5. See number four above. Because it brings with it a whole slew of problems and I’ve learned something from every one of them.

Let’s start with the fact that Dante’s world is five light-years away from mine. He goes to black-tie functions and knows the Prime Minister of England on a first name basis. I was born and raised on a farm in Kansas and wear cut-off jeans paired with cowboy boots. See the difference?

But hearts don’t care about differences. Hearts want what they want. And mine just wants to be Dante’s girl.

My heart just might be crazy.

Review 
Oh 'sweet baby monkeys'! This was a really good story! I liked reading and wondering what would it would be like/feel like to be in the fictional Mediterranean Island of Caberra. There were definitely good descriptions of this country, and I felt like I was with the characters in the various spots they were at, including a magnificent Palace. The story itself was pretty good. A Kansas girl meets or rather unexpectedly bumps into the son of the Prime Minister of Caberra. That guy's name is Dante, and he was really fun to read...really. Anyways, from that moment they meet, there is definitely this spark that electrifies the rest of the pages in the story, and I did not want to stop reading; it was really good, all the way to the end. There are occasional obstacles such as a girl named Elena, and a suspicious friend of Dante's, Nate, but other than that, this was a good summer read, that I definitely recommend!

My Rating: 4/5
I say a PG-13 Rating 


Author Bio
Courtney Cole is a novelist who would eat mythology for breakfast if she could.

She has a degree in Business, but has since discovered that corporate America is not nearly as fun to live in as fictional worlds.

Every Last Kiss is her debut novel and she followed it with the rest of The Bloodstone Saga (Every Last Kiss, Fated, With My Last Breath and My Tattered Bonds).

Courtney lives in quiet suburbia, close to Lake Michigan, with her real-life Prince Charming, her ornery kids (there is a small chance that they get their orneriness from their mother) and a small domestic zoo.
