Dispirited after a recent breakup, Irish project manager Trevor is guilted into a trip to Brussels with his best friend. A chance meeting with cute and funny tour guide Jerome turns into a weekend of sex and friendship. Forgetting his phone at Jerome’s apartment shifts their fling into a long-distance relationship held together by postcards, texts, and stolen weekends. But distance isn’t the only thing keeping them apart—Trevor is a workaholic who values his success, while artistic Jerome is carefree but insecure.

Starting a life together means facing major challenges, but the loving words they’ve shared build a bridge across the sea—one that might let them meet in the middle.

World of Love: Stories of romance that span every corner of the globe.

Thank Goddess for meddling best friends and fate/ happy circumstance!

Trevor’s best friend packs him up in the middle of the night and whisks him away with her to Brussels to keep him from moping in his apartment, tending the wounds of a broken heart. She then sends him on a guided tour where he meets a very charming guide, Jerome.

Jerome’s best friend wants to see him happy so desperately, after his being alone for years, that he is constantly setting him up on blind dates. None of them ever end well. It is after one such disastrous date that Jerome runs into Trevor again.

After a weekend that was supposed to be a fun-filled, no strings, or last names, “one-off,” thanks to a mislaid cell phone,  the sparks across countries continue. Lucky for us too, or we wouldn’t have such a delightful journey to travel with Jerome and Trevor.

As with any good storytelling you find yourself invested in the world and characters the author creates, and Emy Calirel does such a fantastic job weaving this tale that you could see and feel the emotions of the MCs through each experience.

This isn’t a book of fluff, but of real life and real life drama and situations between two people who are as different as they are similar. Even knowing this is an HEA, it’s the journey that is the most important, not the ending. Even though that’s pretty great too!
