Summary

When disaster strikes, paradise calls.... 

As a published novelist, Lila Rose has been writing about fictional weddings all her life. But disaster strikes on her own big day when she hears her philandering fiancé, Daniel, whispering sweet nothings to someone else. With her dream day shattered, all Lila wants to do is run and hide, so she decides to fly solo on her own honeymoon.  

When Daniel arrives in the resort with his new squeeze, Lila strikes up a ‘showmance’ with hot new movie star Freddie Bianchi. Freddie is perfect for the part, and Lila soon relaxes into her leading lady role.  

But as truth starts to merge with fiction, could real love be in the air?  

A sizzling holiday romance, perfect for fans of Sophie Kinsella, Lindsey Kelk and Sophie Ranald’s Sorry Not Sorry.

Absolutely brilliant!💯👏🏽LOVE KAREN CASS👏🏽

I got this book because of Karen Cass as she is one of the very best narrators on audible! How anyone can say any different about her i have NO idea why! She’s always OUTSTANDING 💯👏🏽and this book is FANTASTIC too! I will be looking for more by Portia MacIntosh👏🏽i couldn’t put it down! Karens male voice is brilliant so she really helped me imagine all the characters so well and I could imagine EVERYTHING right down to the last detail because of both Portia and Karen, and i LOVE when that happens! Thats the sign of a BRILLIANT book!🤗 really really great, funny, feel good storyline! Love love love it! Thank you Portia, thank you AGAIN Karen, and thank you audible for another AMAZING BRILLIANT book!!!👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽💯💯💯💯💯💯💯♥️xxx

Drivel

I don’t normally leave reviews but this book was torturously cringe and dull, unless this is your type of thing I’d avoid like the plague.

nonsense!

maybe this is a book for younger people, but it was fairy tale nonsense. cooky friends, boyfriends gone from perfect to awful human beings overnight, exotic islands, incognito film stars??.... please, I am not 12. even the narrator sounded like she could not believe the words coming out of her mouth. Nevertheless, I got through it. a full 2 stars because I could see younger people enjoying the escapism of this fairy tale tripe.

Funny book.

I really enjoyed this book. I liked the characters. They were not flat,but funny and interesting. I hated that Daniel was a cheater. I hated that Lila must have felt like she wasn't enough for Daniel. Instead of feeling that there was something wrong with him not her. Anyway, it was a good book with a predictable outcome. Which is what we usually hope for.

Narrator one of my favorites. Weak story though

I’ve been going through Portia’s books this summer and I really like the narrator. She does most of these books. She wasn’t as good in this book simply because there’s a lot of male voice conversations with accents and she didn’t do it very well. Other than that a fun silly story, and a great listen.

So Annoying!

Sorry but I could not finish this book! It had such good ratings I thought I'd really enjoy the story and the "laugh out loud" fun it was supposed to bring! , boy was I wrong on both counts!! The heroine was so annoying I'm surprised I made it as far as chapter 16! At that point I gave up and just jumped ahead to the last chapter where, in the last 5 minutes of the book, (Spoiler) the couple finally admitted they loved each other! Glad I didn't waste my time reading the rest ! I enjoy a good romance but find books where there are nothing but misunderstandings right up to the end just plain aggravating! The narrator was pretty good and I would have enjoyed her more had the book.been better!

AMAZING rom-com..

OMG OMG OMGGGGG that was really CUUUUTTEEEE I kept laughing and swooning with Lila this was sooo amazing
The story follows Lila who discovers that her Fiancée is cheating on her .. with her friend .. on their WEDDING DAY !!, so she breaks down and decides to go on the honeymoon she planned for both of them alone, in an island in Italy, and there she meets Freddie, he is a movie star looking for some time alone .. but when they meet there will be a lot that will keep them stuck together in this hilarious story about moving on and love
I can't express how much I loved this book, it reminded me of Sophie Kinsella's books, specially (Can You Keep A Secret ? ) it was sooo good
The narrator was EXCELLENT .. she performed so flawlessly that I felt I was there with them .. amazing job worth your credit

Loved it

I could not stop listening to this funny romance. I loved being whisked away on a book vacation and adored the characters. This was my first Portia MacIntosh book and I absolutely loved it. Karen Class as always is a wonderful narrator and what originally drew me to this book.

Not the best book by Portia MacIntosh

I’ve listened to several books by Portia MacIntosh and so far this was my least favorite. The reader is great by the story was only so so.
