Summary

He's the one. Definitely... Isn't he?

Everyone dates online these days. If fact, we all know someone who met the one on Tinder...or match.com...or MySingleFriend.

But how do you know the person you're falling in love with is who he says he is? And how far would you put your heart on the line to pursue your dream?

Holly Johnson decides to fly to the other side of the world to be with the man she'd almost given up hope of meeting.

But when she arrives in New York City, she is going to get the shock of her life....

Light, romantic stuff!

I find Claudia Carrol’s books sometimes fabulous, sometimes - just not for me. This fits into the latter category. As romantic chick lit goes, I think it’s probably good. I prefer something with a bit more meat in it though. Light can still have substance. This does not. I loved ‘The Women of Primrose Square’, also light, but still addressing several important issues. About half way through this one, I realised it is not for me. Perfect for those looking for romance alone.

Excellent

Loved this book. Loved the characters Holly and Mike.

I didn't want to turn this off it was so addictive. Just wished we knew what happened with Holly meeting her birth mother.

A really good listen!

Review: this was such a good read, I wasn't expecting this to be what it was, this book dealt with so much and yet in such an enjoyable way. The main crux of the storyline is Internet dating. A large proportion of the people reading this book will have tried Internet dating and those who haven't, will be close to someone who has, therefore this is a highly relatable storyline and it certainly was for me. There were parts of the book where the main characters or the main character and her best freind were joking about rule for Internet dating and talking about the dating sites and I could have been having the same discussion with them, every word was totally true! There is a darker side to Internet dating and this book deals with that to some extent but in a totally comical and unimaginable way-brilliant!

I have to say, I really loved Holly, the main character, she was so loveable and you just wanted to be feeinds with her and go on adventures with her. She was somewhat naive but that made her so optimistic and she really did want to see the good in everyone and everything and I loved that about her. I loved the events that she encountered over the course of the book and I loved the way she dealt with everything. Of course there are a couple of love interests in the book, this being a story about Internet dating and all and one guy in particular totally stole my heart, I loved him and when he was around old-fashioned romance was turned up high!

A large proportion of the book is set in manhattan and it is so brilliantly described, all the locations can be visualised and are accurate (there seemed to be some issues with time difference but I let that one go) you really feel like you are there yourself, living the dream with Holly. There were some dramatic moments in the book, and some where you will find yourself gasping out loud, I know I did! Overall though, this is just a really great story that could definitely happen to someone just like you and I loved it from beginning to end!

Boring

The story was boring, struggled to continue listening. Narrator was a bit annoying with accents.
