Publisher's Summary

Romancing the...
Is this the makeover of a lifetime?
Ambitious fashionista Perry Goodwood lands the project of his dreams - track down a celebrity family's missing brother in the Scottish Highlands and bring him back to London for a TV reality show. But first he must transform the rugged loner into a glamorous sophisticate.
Greg Ventura has no use for high fashion. He lives on the isolated island of North Uist to escape the reminder that he's nowhere near as handsome as his gorgeous brothers and to avoid the painful childhood memories of being bullied.
Greg wants nothing to do with city life, and Perry's never been outside London. When Perry is stranded on North Uist, this conflict seems insurmountable. But Greg is captivated by the vivacious Perry, and Perry by both the island and his host. However, Perry's one heartfelt wish remains: that ugly duckling Greg fulfill his potential as a swan.

So Much more than a Fairy Tale

To be honest I thought this was going to be like other transformation stories but this is so much more. A truly modern and realistic take on the story. Greg Ventura is the ‘ugly duckling’ brother and has hidden himself away on a remote Scottish isle because of his brothers bullying. Over time he has become more of a man in all senses then his materialistic brothers. Perry was sent to entice him back so that the brothers can What I loved was that Perry is not a shining Prince Charming character but a lovely friendly bloke who is down on his luck. When he gets to North Uist Perry finds a different and better way of life which he begins to appreciate. Both Greg and Perry, with a little help, fall for each other. I think there are two Swan moments, one for Perry when he realises being a fashionista doesn't make him happy and the other is Greg’s

Joel Leslie’s narration makes the story glow. I already knew he is a master of accents but in this story he shows how superb he is. I loved his Scottish accent and was sorry when the audiobooks finished.

Such a perfect feel good story and one I will listen to over and over again.
I was given a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.
