Summary

Talulah Riley's stunning debut novel is a bold, intelligent, and modern love story which reminds us that the most powerful relationships are not so much about two people finding each other as they are about that most human quest to find ourselves.

Bernadette is expert at hiding the truth. She has built her career as a journalist on her talent for lulling powerful men into a false sense of security, then exposing them in her ruthless profile pieces. But in Radley Blake, she may have met her match.

Immune to her charms, he seems to see through every layer of her carefully constructed act, right to the truth of who she is inside. We think we're looking for love - but what if it's ourselves we need to find?

Talulah Riley's wonderful first novel is an irresistible will-they-won't-they tale that asks how it is we can strive for independence but still believe in destiny....

Predictable

I somehow finished it and did have fun along the way... The central character (oh dear, already can't remember her name) was interesting if not very likable. But it was altogether too "chicklit" for me.

Completely, unbelievably bad

Unbelievably bad... Only continued for first hour or so as assumed it was an ironic skit of chic lit. (It isn't... !) skipped quite a lot and resented paying for this ....It's just atrocious writing, ghastly cardboard characters, and completely and pretentiously unfunny
