The Blurb

Fun & flirty short story from the exciting new chick lit author Nikki Moore!

Made in Chelsea?

Nathan Black is on a mission to prove himself. His family may be upper class and his cousin Matt might be a famous music producer, but he’s going to make it on his own. So as soon as he has enough money set aside, he’s quitting his bar-tending job on the King’s Road and opening up his own cocktail bar. He hasn’t got time for love, and definitely not with the spoilt Chelsea Princesses who flirt with him shamelessly every night. But is there something a bit different about the pretty blonde who’s just walked in?

Bournemouth girl Sofia Gold is reluctantly visiting old childhood friends in London for Easter weekend. Keenly aware she’s not part of their glamorous world, she’s more comfortable riding a surfboard than wearing designer dresses and towering heels… although she’s always had a soft spot for cocktails.

It’s never really bothered Sofia that she’s ‘one of the boys,’ and that her romantic experiences have been amazingly unspectacular, so when she meets gorgeous Nathan, why does she find herself faking an accent and pretending to be a London socialite? It can’t be anything to do with impressing him, can it? After all, she’s only in the capital for a few days…

But one impulsive kiss later, they both find themselves wishing for things they didn’t know they wanted.

Spring in Chelsea – will love blossom?

The Review

After reading (and loving) book number three in the #LoveLondon series – Valentine’s on Primrose Hill – author, Nikki Moore promised me a fun, frisky, light hearted short story and man oh man did she deliver!

Leading lady Sofia is staying with family friends for the Easter bank holiday weekend and when they take her to their favourite bar in Chelsea she bumps into scorching hot barman Nathan. However, a case of mistaken identity gets in the way of them getting together. It will take the truth to be revealed before these two crazy kids decide to make the right move.

I loved Cocktails in Chelsea. Sofia seemed fun even though she was a fish out of water in her surroundings; Nathan became even more likeable every time he put himself out there only to try and protect himself from who he believed Sofia to be. It sounds a bit random to say this but it was all very Shakespearean.

Nikki Moore has created another enjoyable story for the #LoveLondon series. This is definitely a collection of books which will make you fall in love with England’s capital.

Cocktails in Chelsea by Nikki Moore is available now.

    Thanks for another lovely review Lisa – and I love Shakespeare!! Maybe it’s a little Twelfth Night? (Though Sofia doesn’t dress up as a boy…!)

    Hope you like the next one, Nikki x

      That is exactly what I thought when I was reading it. I really enjoyed this one and you were totally right about it being a little bit lighter than Primrose Hill 🙂 I can’t wait for the next one 🙂 x
