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.
