I really loved the characters in this book too. You are dropped right into the middle of their lives and yet you feel like you've always been friends with these people. I could so easily picture their shared house and their work place. I really liked Bea as a character. She is slightly unsure of the world and we get to see that through her eyes although she doesn't really want to let on to her Friends that this is the case. Again something we can probably all relate to!. I also really loved the fact that she is in her twenties and yet we don't see her being sexually active. I think there is often a stereotype that is embraced in books about twenty somethings that they are always looking for their next sexual partner and that they are incredibly sexually experimental, and whilst that is true in some cases and I absolutely embrace that, it isn't always the case and so not every twenty something character has to be portrayed this way.
I love Bea's group of friends too. Henry is so down to earth, and like Bea, he is single for the majority of the time that we know him! Freya is amazing gives great advice and has amazing stories abut her own hookups with women all over London. And then there is the couple of the house, Adam and Celine. We've all been in that house share where we can hear someone we live with having sex and so again, so easy to relate to this friendship group. They also have an amazing restaurant where they go fro brunch with a sage Mrs C character, who is Greek. Again, I swear I have met this person before, she is so like people I know who have played that exact same character in my life!
There are plenty of moments of real truth as well as comedy in this book. Bea has some issues with her family and spends some time with them, she isn't sure about her career choices and she is obviously questioning her romantic choices. The story about her ex is very real as well and is an unfortunate reality of life. But whilst this story definitely keeps it real there are some proper crying with laughter moments and I had to try really hard to laugh quietly when reading this book in public or when my husband was still asleep!
I wold definitely recommend this read. It is fast-paced and fun, but with a real message that I'm sure we can all relate to. If you are fans of romantic comedy films, you will definitely love this and even if you are not, I will guarantee that this will make you laugh. Download it to read over the holiday period to give yourself some much-needed me time, you won't regret it!
I loved the main character Bea and her housemates/friends. I admire her for following her dream and how her dreams changed as the book went on. I loved everything about this book and honestly I can say romance isn't one of my favourite genres but there's more to this book than just a romance, there are family issues, friendship issues, awkward moments which are hilarious, and much more.
I'm already looking forward to reading the next book by this author.
It is the story of Bea, who has decided that a guy she meets, Dan, is actually the man of her dreams. There's a bit more to this than meets the eye but it may make my review a spoiler if I say what the full premise of the book is, given that it's not in the blurb, so I'll skip on by! Bea is that chick lit character that you have to love, she's odd and properly quirky, with a running commentary in her head as she goes around (loved it!).
We meet her lovely (lovely!) workmate, Henry (they work in a bookshop, which was excellent and gives rise to loads of actually hilarious incidents). I smiled from very early on in the book and settled in quickly, totally savouring every-single-word. I adored the conversations Bea and Henry had on couples entering the bookshop, trying to decode every movement, every word to see if they thought they were long term or not and loved then how these thoughts seeped into her own dating life. My only beef would be that there's a lot of characters in it, which I'm normally a huge fan of, but to be honest at times I found there to be too many people in her friend circle and I got confused.
I really can't tell you too much about it all, there's plenty of brilliant humour, some gorgeous romance and settings that are so vivid you're there with Bea as she muddles along in a manner so realistic that you're cringing, empathizing and getting mad as if it were you or someone you knew! All in all a great book, and at the moment only £0.99, so I'd go get to be honest!
Thanks to Netgalley and Bookouture for this book in return for an honest review.
