The Bookshop of Forgotten Dreams by Emily Blaine #20booksofsummer21 (14/20) #MiniReview

Thanks for stopping by! I’m delighted to be sharing my mini review for The Bookshop of Forgotten Dreams by Emily Blaine today. With thanks to the publisher for my copy via Netgalley. This is also book fourteen of my 20 books of summer challenge. First things first let’s take a look at the description for the book…

Sarah and Max should never have met. She’s a shy bookworm who’s barely ever left her little village; he’s a bad boy actor with the world at his feet. But when Max crosses one line too many, he’s faced with community service in Sarah’s bookshop.

With an unruly theatre group to run and a gorgeous, tattooed stranger under her roof, Sarah’s about to discover that real life is more complicated than anything she’s ever read in her beloved books…


In a way I kind of ended up having mixed feelings about this book. I loved the premise but maybe I went in with high hopes and too many expectations?! Who knows? For the most part I did enjoy the story and it was definitely an entertaining read. In fact I read it very quickly as there was always something to keep my interest. So a definite plus point there.

The romance was fun and on the whole I was rooting for them but I have to admit I did have some reservations. Mainly about the Maxime’s anger issues. Sarah was a likeable character and I completely understood her love of books! It was great to see her character develop and gain in confidence as the book progressed. I do have to mention if you aren’t a fan of steamy, sizzling scenes then this book might not be for you. This aspect never bothers me but yes, it’s safe to say that Maxime and Sarah have a sizzling chemistry. It’s a real case of opposites attracting! Overall The Bookshop of Forgotten Dreams is a fun, sizzling and romantic read!
