A funny and feel-good read, and Jess is such a relatable character! I couldn't put down the book…
I had a blast with this one … I can honestly relate to the main protagonist of the story … I recommend it to all rom-com fans!
THE DIARY OF A YOUNG BOOK REVIEWER
The characters were so well rounded, you felt like you actually knew them! The plot was so good you didn't want the book to end!
THE SPARE BEDROOM
**Listed Today**: Fun and friendly professional just arrived from London seeks room in central location, double bed preferred, ex-boyfriend optional extra.
Armed with a super-sized backpack full of optimism, Jess sets off in search of sun, sea and a much-needed new beginning.
Things don’t get off to a good start. Instead of sunshine, she’s met with torrential rain. Her job prospects are as dismal as the weather and that friend-of-a-friend she was meant to stay with has fallen through. Just as Jess is homeless, jobless and wishing she’d gone for the waterproof mascara, she runs into the last person she expected to see. Sam. The ex she never got over. Jess always believed that one day fate would bring them back together. Now he’s here, more gorgeous than ever.
Before she knows it, Jess is accepting Sam’s offer to stay in his spare room.
But while she may have been less than truthful about the mess she’s in, there is also one rather important thing Sam has neglected to mention. Suddenly Jess isn’t just living with her ex, but with his new girlfriend too.
All of that baggage she thought she left behind may have caught up with her…
A touching, funny and uplifting look at how finding and losing love can lead you to discover yourself along the way. Fans of Mhairi McFarlane, Sophie Kinsella and classic rom coms like My Best Friend’s Wedding will love Elizabeth Neep’s wit and warmth.
NEVER SAY NO
How far would you go to impress your idol?
‘I allow myself this one little vice. After all the years of forcing doors open, fighting for yes’s. I’ve earnt the right to never say no.’
They say you should never meet your heroes, but Hailey is ecstatic when she starts working for hers. Acclaimed lawyer Vivian Jones’ life tells Hailey what her anxiety needs to hear: women can have it all. But when a late-night in the office exposes Vivian’s secret, Hailey soon discovers that chasing it all can come at a cost.
From smashing-glass ceilings to having sex on glass tables, Hailey comes tumbling into a world of indulgence and excess. Soon her desire to settle down before thirty becomes distinctly unsettled as she says yes to things – and people – she never imagined she would.
Fans of Mhairi McFarlane, Holly Bourne and The Devil Wears Prada will adore this funny, heart-felt and honest look at navigating those moments in life where you reach a crossroads and have to decide who and what it is you want to be.
