Winning the United Kingdom’s favorite singing contest is a challenge for half-Afghani Pasha Trueman. He doesn’t have the best voice, but success would be life-changing. His strategy is simple—he’ll make the British public love him.
Ex-soldier Ed Britten has a different agenda. Winning means he’ll keep a promise made after a deadly Afghan ambush. His voice is his weapon, but he leaves his heart unguarded.
Ed and Pasha’s discovery that the contest isn’t a fair fight calls for creative tactics. Staging a fake love story could bring victory, only there’s more at stake than the prestigious first prize. If winning means surrendering each other, they could both end up losing.
True Brit isn’t a book I would’ve normally gone before mainly because of the reality show aspect of it. I don’t watch reality singing competitions so I don’t read about them. However, I’m glad I gave this one a shot. It’s a wonderfully romantic story between two amazingly complicated and realistic men.
Their characterizations were right on and they always seem realistic. I’ve never read anything by Con Riley before but I will now.
Lirtle reviewed the book here and I love the tagline she used: A thoroughly modern story about unanticipated love…
I agree with her review especially this comment:
Ed and Pasha are well matched, complimenting each other in opposing ways. They also share traits like determination, intelligence and the ability to blush.
These guys are dudes I love to meet and hang out with in real life. Yeah, they’re on a competition but neither one would ever let fame or money go to their head. I loved their back stories and the supporting characters.
As always Matthew Lloyd Davies did an amazing job. I love his voice so much I could listen to him read a dictionary. He nailed the characters here and made all of them unique.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the audiobook of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
