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.

I waited a day to write this review for two reasons: 1) it was dinnertime and I absolutely had to get off the computer, and 2) I wanted to collect my thoughts so I could try and look at this book objectively. Sadly, I am still not looking at it objectively, but oh well. I'm not sure I ever will, hon...
I read the blurb and wanted to read this book. I was expecting a fresh and entertaining story and wasn't disappointed. Dante's girl is the perfect beach read. Sweet, funny and fast-paced, with adorable characters.The main appeal of this book lies in the two main characters, Dante and Reece, who coul...
