Publisher Description

‘Utterly addictive. I LOVE it!’ Colleen Coleman

Twenty-five-year-old Bea is a hopeless romantic with a hopeless love life – until now. New beau Dan ticks all the boxes: he’s good-looking, kind and thoughtful. The complete opposite of Bea’s ex, who once threw her out in the middle of the night when she was ill so she didn’t disrupt his sleep.

So when her friends point out that she and Dan don’t have fireworks, Bea ignores them. Dan is the whole package. And yet Bea can’t stop comparing him to her best friend Henry… Because Dan doesn’t get Bea’s jokes. Or like books. Or make her laugh until she can’t breathe. Or become speechless when Bea puts on her favourite black dress for a night out… 

As time goes on, Bea can’t shift the feeling that something just isn’t right. On paper Dan is the perfect man. But in reality… Will Bea be brave enough to ask for more from life – and get the fireworks she deserves?

A laugh-out-loud romantic comedy for fans of Giovanna Fletcher, Cate Woods, and Mhairi McFarlane.

It Had To Be You

It took me awhile to get into the story, but when that finally happened, I really enjoyed it. I was disappointed in Bea’s stepfather and wished that haden’t happened. You don’t often get a stepfather that you love and who loves you. It is a relatively clean book with no heavy sex scenes, and with a few F bombs thrown in that really could have been substituted with something less. But all in all a good story.
