We Review How To Get A (Love) Life by Rosie Blake

How to get a love lifeThe Dare: To Get a Love Life by Valentine’s Day.

Nicola has success in her professional life (she enjoys her job working for a talent agency,) she loves her family (even though her mother can be hard work,) and she has lovely friends. However, she doesn’t have a boyfriend and when her colleague, Caroline, discovers that Nicola has never had a boyfriend for Valentine’s Day, she sets Nicola a challenge to get a love life and that she needs to find herself a man by Valentine’s Day. For a girl set in her ways (and frankly has a case of OCD,) this isn’t an easy task.

Nicola’s important quest begins with some awful dates with horrible sounding men and at times, it was cringe worthy to read – I felt sorry for Nicola. The book was great and had me laughing out loud in some places.

It was heart-warming too. I was pleased to see Nicola come out of her shell a little throughout the book as she puts herself into situations that have her out of her comfort zone.

I want to be friends with Caroline – she sounds brilliant and James seems a lovely gentleman and very sweet. Mark was also a fun character to read.

I read this book in almost one sitting (a previous appointment stopped me from reading it in one sitting.) I couldn’t put it down.

The plot is a lovely lesson in what could happen if you just let yourself take a leap of faith.

A hilarious romantic read and it isn’t just for Valentine’s Day.

I’m Laura. I started Novel Kicks in 2009. I wanted a place to post my writing as well as give other writers like me the opportunity to do the same. There is also a monthly book club, a writing room which features writing prompts, book reviews, competitions, author interviews and guest posts.

I grew up by the sea (my favourite place in the world) and I currently live in Hampshire. I am married to Chris, have a cat named Buddy and I would love to be a writer. I’m trying to write the novel I’ve talked so much about writing if only I could stop pressing delete. I’ve loved writing since creative writing classes in primary school. I have always wanted to see my teacher Miss Sayers again and thank her for the encouragement. When not trying to write the novel or writing snippets of stories on anything I can get my hands on, I love reading, dancing like a loon and singing to myself very badly. My current obsession is Once Upon a Time and I would be happy to live with magic in the enchanted forest surrounded by all those wonderful stories provided that world also included Harry Potter. I love reading chick lit. contemporary fiction and novels with mystery.
