Dante's Girl (The Paradise Diaires #1) by Courtney Cole Blog Tour Stop

I have spent every summer since I was ten years old with my father in London. Every summer, since I was ten years old, has been uneventful and boring.

Until this year.

And this year, after a freak volcanic eruption strands me far from home, I have learned these things:

1. I can make do with one outfit for three days before I buy new clothes.

2. If I hear the phrase, “You’re not in Kansas anymore, Toto,” even one more time, I might become a homicidal maniac.

3. I am horribly and embarrassingly allergic to jellyfish.

4. I am in love with Dante Giliberti, who just happens to be the beautiful, sophisticated son of the Prime Minister of a Mediterranean paradise.

5. See number four above. Because it brings with it a whole slew of problems and I’ve learned something from every one of them.

Let’s start with the fact that Dante’s world is five light-years away from mine. He goes to black-tie functions and knows the Prime Minister of England on a first name basis. I was born and raised on a farm in Kansas and wear cut-off jeans paired with cowboy boots. See the difference?

But hearts don’t care about differences. Hearts want what they want. And mine just wants to be Dante’s girl.

My heart just might be crazy.


First I would like to give a huge thank you to Kismet for allowing me to be a part of Dante's Girl tour. Courtney has started this new series off with a bang.I have to say that this is one summer must read for this summer.I have read a lot of books but Dante's Girl really spoke to my romantic side. Dante and Reece are the perfect example of summer love and what happens beyond that.

Reece Ellis is is a country girl getting ready to spend her summer with her father like she does every summer but this summer is going to be different. In the airport Reece see's Dante which she refers to as a God because he is so beautiful there are no words to describe him.Then Reece boards the plane and ends up sitting with Dante. As they talk and get to know each other their is a problem on the plane and they evacuate from it. Dante decides he is going to take Reece back home to a small island in Greece called Caberra.

While there at the island Reece gets to meet Dante's family. She is convinced she and Dante are from two different worlds and that liking him is a bad thing because he is the son of The Prime Minister and what can a country girl offer him.Soon Reece will find out just how complicated life can get with liking someone who is expected to do everything their parents tell them to. This story is about first loves and where they can take you. It is also about a boy who is expected to act in a certain way but feels something different deep down inside. What will Reece and Dante do? Will they end up together, or are things to complicated? Will Reece be able to have her prince charming?

Well I will not spoil it for you so you will have to read the book to find out! Happy Reading and come along and enjoy the breath taking descriptions of Greece. Courtney I so want to go to Greece now.

I wish this was a physical copy. I already have the ebook but I love this book and the cover is so pretty so my bookcase definitely needs this book in it,

My first love was an older boy (high school) when I was just in middle school. He lived across the street and we would shake our drapes at each other's windows when we wanted to talk:)
