"Always with Love" was one of my most anticipated books this year. I've read Giovanna Fletcher's debut novel "Billy and Me", then adored "You're the One that I Want" and haven't had a pleasure to read "Dream a Little Dream" - yet! - even though it's on my TBR pile. (And I know. There are two novellas as well). Keeping in mind that "Always with Love" is continuation of "Billy and Me" and we are going to meet the lovely Sophie and the super - handsome Billy, I started to read the book almost immed

The story of Billie and Sophie continues... In a typical chicklit kind of way. It was a nice read but didn't get me all that excited. ...more
Billy and Sophie two of my favourite characters from all the books I've read and another story about them, what's not to like it was another easy read which I liked how the sections were split just like the last book.

In this sequel to 'Billy and Me' Sophie is happy with her famous boyfriend Billy and everything seems great, she loves living in Rosefont Hill and working in her teashop.
One day the both of them fly over to Los Angeles and Sophie gets to meet Billy's big family for the first time. But all those paparazzi and people she thinks don't really want her there might not really be her thing.
And to make things worse, Billy needs to stay longer, meaning Sophie has to fly back to England alone. Soon, she

I quickly realised when reading the synopsis that you really needed to read Billy & Me which was released in 2013. I quickly rectified that and as I enjoyed it so much I was keen to get going with this sequel. I was so pleased that I did as I really enjoyed it! This can certainly be read as a standalone, but is so much more enjoyable having the back story of these two. Billy and Sophie when we last left them had settled into life in a rural countryside setting in Kent and when we return things s ...more

This is a follow on to Billy and Me but it can be read on its own, everything you would need to know about what has gone before is explained and in a nice way, without making you feel as if you are being info dumped. Tea shop owner Sophie and her boyfriend, heart throb movie star Billy have spent the last few months living in a quaint rural village, Rosefont Hill where Sophie has her tea shop, whilst Billy has been having a break from the Hollywood whirl. The story here starts when they make a t ...more

Recently I read - and loved! - Giovanna Fletcher's debut novel Billy & Me. It was fantastic, and I could hardly believe how long it took me to read it (I will forever be ashamed!) so I was ecstatic when a copy of Always With Love landed in my possession. I love that there's a sequel, and something tells me this might not be the last Sophie & Billy novel, too, which makes me even more excited. I could read about Sophie & Billy forever because they're so down to earth, and their relationship is so ...more

We are back with Sophie and Billy and I couldn’t be happier. I love their story in Billy and Me, they are such a cute couple and share this unique connection. It wasn’t easy for them in the beginning, but their love is strong.

Now, some time has passed. Sophie has gotten used to being Billy Buskin’s (the movie star) girlfriend. Together they live with her mum and he helps her in her tea shop. When they go to LA to visit his family everything changes.

Sophie gets to know his big family, which is no

This is the wonderfully romantic sequel to Billy & Me, and also the Christmas e-book short story, Giovanna Fletcher once again has weaved her magic, and written a book that I couldn't get enough of. I read it in one sitting, quite happily one evening, and didn't put it down at all.

If you haven't read Billy & Me, then don't worry as this definitely works as a standalone story, which was useful as although I remember loving the original, I couldn't recall the details, but slowly bits started to c

Just like Billy and Me, Always with Love is utterly sweet and charming. I was so happy to know that we were getting more of Sophie and Billy's story. Yea, I didn't love it as much as Billy and Me, I still thoroughly enjoyed it. Sophie and Billy spend quite a bit of the book apart. Being on different continents is hard. Both characters are equally frustrated. Which sucks. So well Sophie and Billy's relationship had its highs and lows, Sophie had a lot of time to really figure out what she wanted ...more

I couldn't sleep last night so I bought this book and read it. Now that Mrs. Fletcher has written more books, it's quite easy to find a 'formula' in the way she writes things, and in all honesty... it works. Whatever she's doing, it works. She went off her 'formula' for Dream a little Dream (and I hated the book!) but this just works.

However... I missed something. I missed a whole lot. The story is sugary sweet and the 'conflicts' in the book are just minor disagreements that were boring. Things

Every once in a while, I love a chick lit. And Giovanna Fletcher always hits the spot. I was elated when I found out she was following up Billy and Me with a sequel, immediately reading the first book again before diving in to this one. I honestly think I liked Always with Love a little better than its predecessor. As with all relationships, Sophie's and Billy's has hit a wall. They need to learn how to work around Billy's crazy acting schedule and Sophie's dedication to her tea shop. I found th ...more

Sophie decides she can time time off from running her cage and go with Billy to his home in America and seeing his family. Once she gets there Billy's mum wants him back working as an actor in his home country and not chasing after Sophie and she invites someone to the house New Year's Eve and it gets ...more

2.5 stars rounded to 3.

After I started reading this, I realised I have almost no idea how old Billy and Sophie are. I had assumed mid-twenties, but Sophie is very angsty, and Billy's behaviour with his siblings is a little immature. I also had no idea how mega-rich Billy is. The idea his family lives in his house (with his staff) and doesn't do any work at all is a little odd. They seemed like freeloaders.

In this book, Sophie continues in the habit of casting others in the a villain type role ag

But however lovely and happy Billy’s family may be, they have problems of their own. Billy’s mother wants him to go back onto the acting scene after his long break to reclaim his spotlight and ensure their security, whilst his dad is forever trying to appease her. And the siblings: eldest party animal twins Hayley ...more

Giovanna Fletcher has a way of making characters so endearing and full of personality, you feel like you know them inside out. I always love finishing a book and feeling like it has happened to dear friends, and this is something that makes Fletcher's book(s) stand out above the rest.

Although this novel starts off quite slow with a recap of the previous book, Billy and Me, it soon picks up, and Fletcher shows she is adept at creating settings that are so perfectly described, you can picture the

At thirteen she left Essex behind to attend the full-time Sylvia Young Theatre School, where she met her husband Tom Fletcher. Following SYTS she completed an acting BA (hons) at Rose Bruf
