As they continue to grow closer, they overcome the obstacles in their way that threaten to stop their relationship before it gets going. Fred becomes Brit's "English Knight" and vows to take on someone from Brit's past who's still threatening her. Will her parents get angry when they find out? Will Brit's amorous friend take him steal him away from her? Will the course of true love run smoothly?
This book was really cute, I liked it much better than I thought I would, Fred was so sweet and I really wanted to get to know him! It was fun learning about all of the words that are different in the US as opposed to England.
On the downside there was not much action but that was helped by the love story and the hidden conflict that Brittney had. The story was very interesting and I could not wait to find out what would happen!
