Happy Monday all!

Hope you are doing well and reading lots of good books! This was another fun feel good romcom that put a big smile on my face!🥰

My Thoughts

Fun and flirty. Stephie Chapman has written an engaging enemies to friends to lovers Will they won’t they story. Fran and Ollie meat when they are both interviewing for the same job. Fran instantly does not like Ollie, but when they both get the job and start working together they start to form a friendship. There is definitely chemistry between the two, but they are both involved with other people. Time goes by and the bond deepens between Fran and Ollie, Fran and her boyfriend break up. Newly single Fran starts to write a column about her experience with dating using a dating app. What follows is a cute story filled with right swipes, bad dates, cute costumes, fun parties, tacos and guacamole, pub nights, and complicated relationships.

Fran was a fun relatable character that I’d love to be friends with. I was glad to see her end things with her boyfriend Lucas, he definitely did not deserve her, but I was not always convinced that Ollie deserved her either. This book is compared to one of my favorite romcom movies “When Harry Met Sally”, and I can see it. As far as the friends to lovers trope and the can men and women ever truly be just friends question. Although I don’t think Harry ever dated anyone as unlikable as Ollie’s girlfriend Lou. I mean I understand why she did not like Fran, I probably wouldn’t either given the circumstances, but she just seemed angry. So I think the fact that I didn’t always understand Ollie and Lou’s relationship took a little bit away from the book for me. But I did love Fran and her friends, they were very there for her. I also had fun reading about Fran’s really bad dates, and wow did she have some bad luck. This was a charming escapist read with some delightful characters, humorous moments, and a sweet very slow burn romance.

About the Book

Love could be a click away… Or in the last place you expected.

When Fran meets Ollie, it’s eye roll at first sight. Who does he think he is – with his Ray-Bans, piss taking and artfully styled hair? Forced into working together at Viral Hive, the trendy media content agency, at first they butt heads, but soon realise that they could be BFFs. Fran’s happily settled with boyfriend Lucas, while Ollie is fully committed to girlfriend Lou.

But when Fran’s relationship crumbles, and Ollie sets off with Lou for a round-the-world trip, she decides to start an anonymous dating column, detailing all the perils of dating online – from the bloke who angrily demanded she share the bill when she refused his clumsy advances, to the one that ended their date by weeping into her cleavage – even if it seems that all the good (or even normal?) men are hiding. Maybe there aren’t plenty more fish in the sea?

But, on her dating journey of discovery, Fran’s about to learn that sometimes love can be where you least expect it… you just have to put down your phone.

This hilarious romantic comedy is When Harry Met Sally for the Tinder age – will make you laugh and cry! Perfect for fans of Mhairi MacFarlane, Lucy Vine and Sophie Ranald.
