Book Review: Bridge Over the Atlantic by Lisa J Hobman

Bridge Over the Atlantic is a beautiful story about love, and how it's not always so simple and straight forward. When I started the book I thought I knew what it was going to be. Boy meets girl, they fall in love, they have some hardships but live happily ever after. Isn't that the timeless formula for romance that we all love?  But Lisa turned all my expectations around and showed me a story with so much more depth than I expected. There was heartache, tears, laughter. It's been a while since I read a book where I was really immersed in the characters and I can honestly say this book really drew me in. I cried with Mallory. I laughed with her. I felt her pain and her joy. Lisa took me on a journey and introduced me to a whole new life.

Music is a large part of the story and I loved the soundtrack that went along with the book. The best part was I knew most of the songs, and I knew exactly the message being sent through them. It brought a reality to the story that I loved, and also brought back my own memories that are associated with the songs mentioned.

In conclusion: Lisa J Hobman writes a truly beautiful contemporary romance that is raw and real. If I could give this book 6 stars I would. It's probably my favorite book I've read this year. 5 out of 5 stars.

Mallory Westerman is a full-figured, successful, young business woman living in Yorkshire, England. Though very career minded, she is extremely self-conscious about her ample curves and so her love life tends to pay the price. Concentrating solely on her business, she has almost given up on finding someone to love. That is until she literally trips into the arms of a stranger who becomes her Knight in shining armour. The immediate sexual and romantic spark that blossoms into love and the events that follow, irrevocably change Mallory’s life-path and self-image forever, but only go to prove that the road to true love is never smooth and that things don’t always turn out how you expect…
