Summary

Sorry, the old Perci can’t come to the phone right now.

There’s nothing like experiencing the most humiliating breakup in history for a serious wake-up call. After getting dumped over the radio, with millions of listeners tuning in, my life is in serious need of a do-over.

Trying to please everyone else isn’t working, so it’s time to focus on me. Cue my anti-New-Year’s resolutions that even I can’t fail at:

  1. Stop dating. (Men are the worst.)
  2. Stop trying to lose weight. (I’m never giving up chocolate!)
  3. Stop working so hard. (Selling mortgages is not my dream career.)
  4. Stop trying to live up to unrealistic expectations. (Start living my best life!)

But not everyone is on board with the new Perci—my overbearing mother is still dreaming about me walking down the aisle with my awful ex. To keep her far away from my love life, I made up an imaginary boyfriend, but in a moment of panic, I accidentally blurted out my not-so-imaginary neighbor’s name instead!

Nate, the bad boy next door with gorgeous hazel eyes, a razor-sharp jawline, and mysterious scar, might be hot, but he’s definitely not my boyfriend. Now all I need to do is stick to my resolutions while also keeping my interfering family away from my non-existent lover who has no idea that we’re fake dating. What could possibly go wrong?

Fans of TikTok sensations The Love Hypothesis, The Unhoneymooners, and Sarah Adams will love this completely addictive, feel-good rom-com. An absolutely hilarious novel for anyone who feels they need to start living life to the fullest.

Fantastic debut by a very skilled author!

I absolutely ADORED Ms. Peterson's debut novel. Her ease with dialog kept the story flowing and the emotion at the forefront of her writing. The family relationships were so relatable -- and the grandmother was a bit of pure joy! Especially her quotes at the start of every chapter. I laughed out loud more than once (and I rarely do that!)

The narrator was also excellent. Her voices for the characters were rock-solid and easy to listen to.

I cannot wait for the next book Ms. Peterson writes!

Second Chances in more ways than one!

This book has all the feels! You'll run the gamut of laughter, tears, anger, frustration and more right alongside the main character. This character is so relatable for so many of us who try to go along to get along and not make a fuss. So many of us are insecure with our appearance, our life choices and what to do about feeling stuck, yet we often carry on with the status quo as it is just easier to go along and get along with everyone else. The beauty of this story is that as you walk beside the main character as she blossoms, with a few hiccups along the way, into accepting the person she is and being happy with herself you start to feel inspired to take a hard look at your own life and start accepting yourself. It's a cute rom com with a happily ever after, but it will leave you feeling optimistic about your own choices or at least the idea of making them. I absolutely loved the narrator as she really brought Percy and the other characters to life by showcasing their emotions so very well. I really look forward to more from this author!
