Summary

You never forget the one that got away, do you? 

Nell Mason is extremely happy with her life - or at least that’s what she tells herself. She’s lucky to have a high-powered job as a lawyer, even if it does come with an eccentric set of billionaire divorce clients. And she’s absolutely fine living with her sweet, if slightly dull, boyfriend Gus in their London flat, where they have very sensible sex once (okay, sometimes twice) a week. She’s definitely not stuck in a rut.

But when Nell bumps into childhood friend and first love Arthur Drummond who broke her heart 15 years ago, she’s more than a little shaken. The seemingly perfect life she’s worked so hard for starts to feel, well, less perfect. Maybe Nell’s been kidding herself all these years. Can she ever get over her first love?

As always light, hilarious & just a fantastic listen

Sophia’s books are the perfect antidote to a bad day, bad week, bad month! Hilarious characters, always some memorable names & wonderful plot. Really liked Nell. Recommend if you need a laugh and love a rom com.

No redeeming qualities - give it a pass

This novel is a joke. First of all, Money-Coutts is a terrible narrator - her voice is so off-putting, and she literally 'narrates' the book. She reads it. There's no change in inflection, no nuance, No matter what the scene, the emotion, the interaction - it's read in the same flat, sing-song cadence better-suited to, oh say, a tour guide.

Then there are the gratuitous sex scenes that Money-Coutts is so fond of injecting into her novels. Her fantasies are pedantic and, beyond this, it's very odd to listen to the author of these fantasies read them aloud. The narration alone is simply unbearable. She always reads her own books - always annoying - but this one is the worst. I couldn't finish it.

But that's no loss, because the story lines are ridiculous and the characters one-dimensional and the plot turns cringe-worthy. This book feels thrown-together and phoned in on deadline.

Give it a pass.
