My Blog Stop for Spin The Bottle by Isabella May

A fantastic story that certainly set my heart into a spin! A wonderful book filled with great characters and a thrilling will they won’t they theme.
I loved the two settings of Gibraltar and London, especially the gorgeous Notting Hill base that brought back some favourite characters from a previous Isabella book.
Some hilarious scenes and as always a little magic, this delightful story was entertaining and sweet.
Celeste is a character that I soon warmed to and her dread of running into her past captured my imagination. Travis is brilliant too and I loved their first proper meeting as adults and his Hugh Grant like reaction.
As always with an Isabella book, I did end up craving delicious food, and so as luck would have it I had purchased a carrot cake which was the perfect accompaniment to this scrumptious feel good story.

Book 📖 blurb 🍋

CELESTE thought she had long forgotten the sweet, citrusy kiss she shared with TRAVIS during a game of spin the bottle. Splitting her time between her accounts office in super Instagrammable Notting Hill, and her tiny apartment in quirky Exmouth Market, modern-day life is simply too busy for men. Besides, whenever she tries to find The One, it always ends in disaster. From Tinder tragedies to trampolining tribulations, Celeste is starting to think that she’s cursed.

But then Travis begins to pop up wherever she goes, and Celeste knows with stomach-sinking clarity that fate has finally caught up with them. Inspired by the idea of fake dating, Celeste is convinced the only way out of this mess is to call the curse’s bluff. But will Travis agree to it? And how can she manage not to fall in love?

Pour yourself a lemonade and escape with this gorgeous will-they-won’t-they rom-com set between London and Gibraltar!
