A laugh-out-loud, feel-good romantic comedy perfect for fans of Jane Costello and Mandy Baggot!
Will you…date me?
Delilah James, singleton and smoothie-addict, has six months to find a date for her oldest friend’s wedding. Oh, and to prove to her ex, best man Ben, that she has totally moved on since he dumped her out-of-the-blue nine months, eight days and seventeen hours ago…
So, with her two BFFs playing Cupid, Delilah launches herself into the high-tech, fast-paced and frankly terrifying world of dating. Luckily there’s the hot new guy at work, Adam Sinclair, to practice her flirting on – even if, as a colleague, he’s strictly off-limits!
Yet time’s running out and date after disastrous date forces Delilah to tell a little white lie – and invent a fake boyfriend! But will her secret crush on Adam ruin everything? Does she even care about Ben anymore? And is it too late to untangle her web of lies and take a real date to the wedding…?
About the author
Jennifer Joyce is a writer of romantic comedies. She's been scribbling down bits of stories for as long as she can remember, graduating from a pen to a typewriter and then an electronic typewriter. And she felt like the bee's knees typing on THAT. She now writes her books on a laptop (which has a proper delete button and everything). Jennifer lives in Oldham, Greater Manchester with her husband Chris and their two daughters, Rianne and Isobel, plus their bunnies Cinnamon and Leah and Jack Russell Luna. When she isn’t writing, Jennifer likes to make things – she’ll use any excuse to get her craft box out! She spends far too much time on Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
The sort of breezy and utterly charming book that deserves to come on holiday with you. We fell very quickly for our heroine, Delilah, a dating novice suddenly hurled into the no-holds-barred universe of dating apps in a bid to find a date for her oldest friend’s nuptials. But why the desperation? Well, her ex, Ben, is the best man. Delilah’s quest takes in the sort of hilarious nightmare first dates we can all relate to and an prospective office romance that might just provide her dream solution.
In the past I’ve read other books from the same author and really enjoyed them. However having read this one approved very frustrating and annoying to read. The characters behaved like they were 18 years old versus in their 20s. Storyline was also anti climactic- to me at least.
