Summary

For fans of Bridget Jones, Katie Fforde and Carole Matthews. Sit back and escape with this fabulous listen.

Do nice guys stand a chance?

Lizzie Donavue went from being the sister of his best friend to the girl Nick Templeton most wants to kiss. On her birthday, he finally summons up the courage to make his move. But it looks like Nick’s missed his chance when he discovers that Lizzie has been offered a modelling contract, which will take her away to the glamorous fashion scenes of New York and Los Angeles.

Nick is forced to watch as the gawky teenager he knew is transformed into Elizabeth Donavue: top model and ultimate English rose pinup, forever caught in a whirlwind of celebrity parties with the next up-and-coming Hollywood bad boy by her side.

But then Lizzie’s star-studded life comes crashing down around her, and a guy like Nick could be just what she needs. Will she take a chance on him? Or is he just too damn nice?

Just talk

Oh I was so darn frustrated that two main characters didn't just talk to one another! It was enjoyable story but I just kept shouting for peek sake tell one another how you feel! I felt the narrator didn't show much emotion telling the story.

One to miss

Main characters were weak and extremely irritating. Wasted so much of their time (and mine!) not being honest with each other. Liked the narrator though.

Totally romantic

Maybe it’s my age, my love toward anything love and romance related but this book hadn’t me wanting the cliche of happily ever after so badly. What better way than listen to a wonderful narrator speaking with such vulnerability of the characters yet project awkwardness, clumsiness and humour. My children always tell me that my reaction speaks volumes. WelI, I cried. My greatest reaction to show my deep interaction is usually through tears. I loved it. Truly, madly, deeply.

Not for me

Ladies - I’m not sure why you listen to this book and rate it high - as an older person who likes romance what’s all the self doubt about being good enough from both main characters . Geez seize the day for heaven sakes and if a relationship doesn’t work out - move on. 🌈

Narrator Poor

Storyline was pleasant but the narrator was poor. Very annoying and inky persevered as I wanted to hear the whole story

Very pleasant surprise

This book was a freebie so wasn’t expecting much. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Lovely little tale with likeable characters. Narration was a bit too twee, and nick often came across as aggressive when the story didn’t actually dictate that, but overall very enjoyable
