The Loch Effect by Genny Carrick: Book Review

 *Book received for consideration. All thoughts are my own.

I’m here for the mountains, castles, and lakes, not the Scottish silver fox

When my long-term boyfriend overcomes his fear of commitment right after our break-up, I decide I need to face my fears, too. I’m terrified of flying, but a guided tour through Scotland sounds like the perfect way to distract myself and recharge.

Hiking, biking, and paddling my way across the Highlands is one thing, but falling for the swoony silver fox I’m traveling with isn’t part of the plan. He’s confident, charming, and his rumbling voice is as breathtaking as the views.

I can’t deny the sizzling connection between us, but my life is five thousand miles away. I need to be realistic. This isn’t love, it’s just all the fresh mountain air overwhelming me.

Trouble is, I’m getting used to the effect.

The Loch Effect is a closed door, later in life rom-com with implied intimacy. Please note this book contains mild language, moderate innuendo, and more than a wee bit of whisky drinking.

Genny Carrick is a sucker for an HEA, especially if there's a whole lot of laughter along the way. She writes romances and rom-coms about stubborn women and the men who fall for them.

When she's not lost in swoony reads, she's probably up to something crafty or trying to get her dog and two cats to love her.

Genny is a recent Texas transplant after a lifetime in the Pacific Northwest, and lives with her brilliant husband & two hilarious kids. You can connect with her at her website, www.gennycarrick.com

Oh my, how I heart this story!

I didn't know that I needed to read a romance with a Scottish, kilt wearing hero... but after this story, I certainly feel like I need more of just that! Molly and Duncan were such a great pair! Their meet cute was fun, and the chemistry only grew as the story went on. It was a bit of a slow burn... but I enjoyed every single second of it. Molly's frequent mishaps on the trip had me laughing throughout as well. As much as I loved the romance of it all, I also really enjoyed seeing Molly grow in confidence and learning what to prioritize in life throughout the story too. It all blended
together beautifully to create a fun story I couldn't help but love. And the Scotland setting? It made it all that much better! I love that stories can take us to places we've never experienced, and every once in a while, make you want to experience that place in real life--- and this was definitely one of those times for me. (Though I'd definitely be skipping the haggis, blood pudding and whiskey!)

The Loch Effect is a closed-door romance. While intimacy is definitely implied, it happens off the pages, with only kisses on page. 
There was a fair amount of mild language and innuendo as well.

Overall, this was a fantastic read. If you enjoy a vacation romance with a slightly later in life couple (38 and 49), this is definitely one not to be missed!
