American Angie Donovan has never wanted much. When you grow up getting bounced from foster home to foster home, you learn not to become attached to anything, anyone, or any place. But it only took her two days to fall in love with Australia. With her visa clock ticking, surely she can fall in love with an Australian—and get hitched—in two months. Especially if he’s as hot and funny as her next-door neighbor…

Jace Walters has never wanted much––except a bathroom he didn’t have to share. The last cookie all to himself. And solitude. But when you grow up in a family of seven, you can kiss those things goodbye. He’s finally living alone and working on his syndicated comic strip in privacy. Sure, his American neighbor is distractingly sexy and annoyingly nosy, but she’ll be gone in a few months...

Except now she’s determined to find her perfect match by checking out every eligible male in the town, and her choices are even more distracting. He doesn’t want to, but he’s going to have to intervene and help her if he ever hopes to get back to his quiet life

This book was surprisingly sweet! I have to admit, the combination of the word Aussie in the title and the fact that there is a marriage of convenience of sorts mentioned in the synopsis was what sparked my interest. But I was pleasantly surprised to discover that the story went beyond those two... ...more

This was such a sweet story (even with the hot scenes).

Jace is part of a big family (I think they are next in the series) and has autism. So he likes routines and is a bit of a hermit. He draws a well know cartoon. His mother likes to shake things up for him sometimes, so he is stuck with babysi... ...more

Loved this book! Angie is the American that needs to marry and Australian to stay in the country. Jace is her landlord and reluctant friend to Angie. They seemed to come to life on the pages. I found myself totally invested in their story and wanting them to get their HEA ending.

This story was not what I expected.
But that isn't a bad thing.
When I first saw this, I knew I wanted to read it simply because of the word Aussie in the title. Being an Aussie, and it being a book about Australia, it was a given I wanted to read it and I was not disappointed. It was quite a swe... ...more

This book completely surprised me - in a good way! I was expecting some cutesy dialogue and flirtation.

Different spin on this storyline with a 90-Day Fiancé-type twist! Angie had an extremely difficult childhood, and because of those experiences, had a tough time in adulthood trying to establish some anonymity and decides to move to Australia.

This was a tremendous book. I wish the book had been longer to delve a little more into the secondary characters. Perhaps Stefanie will write more books and make this a start of a series.

About the author

USA Today Best Selling Author

Stefanie London

Growing up, Stefanie came from a family of women who loved to read. Her favourite activity was going shopping with her Nan during school holidays, where she would sit on the floor of the bookstore with her little sister and painstakingly select the books to spend her allowance on. Thus, it was no surprise Stefanie was the sort of student who would read her English books before the semester started. After sneaking several literature subjects into her 'very practical' Business degree, she got a job in Communications. When writing emails and newsletters didn't fulfil her creative urges, she turned to fiction and was finally able to write the stories that kept her mind busy at night. Now she lives in Melbourne with her very own hero and enough books to sink a ship. She frequently indulges in her passions for good coffee, French perfume, high heels and zombie movies. At night she writes sexy, contemporary romance stories and tries not to spend too much time shopping online and watching baby animal videos on YouTube.
