Not an expert, not even close, not in any of this. But nobody will try harder than me to make you happy.
Sally is a classic romantic and Harry is a classic cynic, but when a drunken bet leads the new flatmates to (badly) recreate ‘the lift’ from Dirty Dancing, and the video goes viral (#EpicRomcomReenactmentFailure), they both realise there’s potential financial benefit in blundering their way through the romcom lexicon for their suddenly vast social media following.
Now, as Harry and Sally bring major romcom moments to new life – including recreating that classic diner scene – their faking it turns to making…out and suddenly they’re living a real life romcom of their own! But like all the greatest love stories, the road to happily ever after is paved with unexpected challenges for this hero and heroine…
This is one of the best chick lit / rom coms I’ve read for ages! I fell in love with it almost immediately and if you’re a fan of romantic comedy movies…you’ve got to read it! Seriously, it references Bridget Jones, Notting Hill, When Harry Met Sally and tonnes of other amazing romance movies, and the premise is simply brilliant. Can you tell I enjoyed it?
I promise you, these characters will get right under your skin and you’ll find yourself unable to put the book down. I usually read books at night before sleep, a couple of chapters at a time, but this was so difficult because the chapters kept ending when I desperately wanted to know what would happen next. I ended up having a couple of very late nights! I’m very hopeful that this book might be picked up by a film producer because I reckon the resulting movie could be absolutely fantastic!
I loved this book so much, I’m going to get hold of all of Kathryn Freeman’s books to read!
For as long as I can remember, I’ve always wanted to write a book. It may have had something to do with my obsession with reading romance. Real life interfered and I headed off in a different direction – into the world of science, becoming a pharmacist before joining the pharmaceutical industry. I did end up writing, but it was about disease and medicines. Decades later, I’m finally doing what I always wanted to do.
With a husband who asks every Valentine’s Day whether he has to buy a card (yes, he does), all the romance in my life is in my head. Then again, his unstinting support of my career change proves love isn’t always about hearts and flowers – and heroes come in many disguises.
