Summary

Sometimes, the hardest part of finding love is keeping a straight face....

For Jamie Newman, being a single guy isn't proving to be much fun, especially when confronted with a sexually belligerent divorcee and a goddess so far out of his league she might as well be a different species.

Mind you, being a girl in search of love isn't a bowl of cherries either. Just ask Laura McIntyre, who's recently contended with a horny estate agent on a quest for light relief and a rabid mountain bike enthusiast with a penchant for lycra that leaves little to the imagination.

When Jamie and Laura bump into one another (quite literally) it looks like their luck may have changed - but sometimes finding the right person is only the start of your problems....

Love... From Both Sides is a warts-and-all romantic comedy for everyone who knows how tricky the quest for love can be.

"I haven't giggled so much in ages. I sailed through it, only occasionally having to put it down to wipe the tears of mirth from my cheeks." ( Daily Mail)

Fruity from both sides too

Would you consider the audio edition of Love...From Both Sides to be better than the print version?

No idea. Daft question.

What other book might you compare Love...From Both Sides to, and why?

No idea. Daft question.

Have you listened to any of Nick Spalding and Alex Tregear ’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No but Miss Tragear in particular is a top narrator

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It can make you laugh out aloud,especially the first few chapters.

Any additional comments?

Good fun very enjoyable. Will look for the follow ups.

Hilarious

This had me laughing out loud from start to finish. Some very relatable situations too (not sure if that's a good or bad thing?!) Loved it...
Although maybe not for those who are easily offended...

Laugh out Loud

I listened to this story from start to finish in one go, unable to pause, gripped by this well written, funny, heartwarming tale of romance. A true representation of the world of dating that had me laughing out loud on more than one occasion.

Lol

Usual rom com kind of story but written from a mans perspective which gives it a different slant on life.
A lot of laugh out loud moments even tho I listened through audible on headphones at work !!
Great read

It's funny but not ROFL funny

This is a very amusing listen. I found it a bit laboured at times, like the humour was trying a little too hard, but it was still overall very funny. I have a little criticism that the ending came up abruptly and was a little cringe, but it tied the
story up adequately.

My wife found it far funnier than me, I found the book a bit shallow.
