Meet Hot British Boyfriend!

This enchanting debut teen romance novel, which follows one girl across the Atlantic in a quest to find adventure, love (preferably with a guy with a cute accent), and maybe even herself, is perfect for fans of Kasie West and Stephanie Perkins.

After a horrifying public rejection by her crush, Ellie Nichols does what any girl would do: she flees the country. To be more precise, she joins her high school’s study abroad trip to England. While most of her classmates are there to take honors courses and pad their college applications, Ellie is on a quest to rebuild her reputation and self-confidence. And nothing is more of a confidence booster than getting a hot British boyfriend.

When Ellie meets Will, a gorgeous and charming Brit, she vows to avoid making the same mistakes she did with the last guy she liked. Which is why she strikes up a bargain with Dev, an overachieving classmate who she’s never clicked with, but who does seem to know a lot about the things Will is interested in: If he helps her win over her crush, then she’ll help him win over his.

But even as Ellie embarks on a whirlwind romance, she still needs to figure out if this is actually the answer to all her problems . . . and whether the perfect boyfriend is actually the perfect boy for her.

Don't miss this paperback original teen romance book, for girls 13-16 and up as well as adult readers who enjoy a well-written and fun teen romance novel.

Hot British Boyfriend is all about using travel to both escape your problems and build yourself up again. Obviously right now most of us can’t travel abroad due to the pandemic and travel restrictions…but that doesn’t mean we can’t dream of where we’ll go as soon as it’s safe!

With that said, I’ve put together my Top 5 places to visit in England (with some shout-outs to places visited in Hot British Boyfriend).

  1. London: Afternoon tea at the Orangery at Kensington Gardens

You might not be able to have afternoon tea at the restaurant where Ellie and Will go in Hot British Boyfriend (because, ahem, I made it up), but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a wonderful afternoon of your own. My husband and I had afternoon tea here on our honeymoon and it was magical!

 

  1. Bath: The Roman Baths

Okay, this might be the obvious choice when you visit the city, but some things are just required. And when you’re finished with the baths, you can visit all the sites famous for their connection to Jane Austen.

 

 

 

 

  1. Cambridge: Go punting along the River Cam

Cambridge is known for its world-famous university, but you don’t need to be a student to enjoy this city. You can sign up for a private punting tour along the river or rent a boat and do it yourself. It’s not quite the same as the Venetian gondola rides that Ellie and Dev go on in Hot British Boyfriend, but it’s pretty close!

 

 

  1. Northampton Flea market

I couldn’t write this list and leave off the Northampton flea market. This is where Ellie meets her “hot British boyfriend” in the book, and though I can’t promise any dating matches in real life this seems like a charming and off-beat way to spend an afternoon.

 

 

  1. Harlaxton Manor

I mean, look at this place?! Are you surprised that this manor inspired the location for Ellie’s study abroad experience? If you ever get the chance, you have to visit.
