Summary

Everyone wants that special someone....

Annie Higgins has given up on love: she’s too busy trying to get her own business off the ground. But - infuriated by the advertising agency across the hall making fun of her job - Annie accepts their crazy challenge: to make a random stranger Instagram-famous in just 30 days.

And even when they choose Dr Samuel Page PhD, historian and hater of social media as her target, Annie’s determined to win the bet - whether Sam likes it or not.

But getting to know Sam means getting to know more about herself. And before the 30 days are out, Annie has to make a decision about what’s really important....

Funny, real and heart-meltingly romantic, Annie and Sam’s story is My Fair Lady for the social media age - and the perfect summer listen.

Modern-day My Fair Lady.

This is a modern day version of My Fair Lady which moves along at a good pace. I enjoyed the social media aspect.

I listened to this title as an audio book and it all was going along well until one of the main characters, Mia, suddenly became Miranda and then Mia and then Miranda and back again etc etc (you get the gist) in the last third of the book. Considering this cost over ten quid on Audible, I think that's pretty poor quality control. Some people might think me petty, but the constant mistake soured my enjoyment of the whole thing and left me frustrated at the writer/publisher/producer/proof-reader or whoever is prepared to take responsibility.

Slightly grating voice, equally unpleasant social media setting

While technically well written and not bad as a love story, I felt mildly disgusted by the artificiality of the social media and the weird priorities of the cyber kids with their insistence that this is modern life. In part this seems to be a point that the author is trying to make (don’t overdo it and have a leg in both worlds, cyber anx real), but I just couldn’t connect to the people and their inhumane focus/mind-sets. I also found the elaborate off-hand language off-putting.
The speaker’s voice has a grating quality and affected monotony which I found fitting to the story ‘s character but only further enhances the overall unpleasantness of the listening experience.
Not the bibliophile ‘s cup of tea in my opinion.

Sweet & Satisfying

A really nice easy going listen/read of a story that I didn't want to end. It had just the right amount of anticipation and what I especially loved is how relatable the characters are. Love a story with miscommunication that works itself out in the end. Just lovely.

Easy listening and interesting story

I enjoyed listening to this book. It was humourus and easy to get to know the characters. I think it was possibly a bit predictable that they would get together.

Boring

Did not finish. Full of cliché. Narration was a bit flat too. Especially the narrators depiction of the man. Totally unconvincing.

Another amazing story from Lindsey Kelk. Made me laugh many times and cringe occasionally at the beautifully awkward moments. Loved it!

light, engaging

I liked the story and narrator.

The author didn't need to add the profanity, however. It actually took away from the mood of the moment.

Well written page turner with excellent narration

This book was such a delightful way to spend a day. It is a smart romcom that deserves to be at the top of the list of fans of light contemporary fiction that remains engaging from start to finish.

I recommend it! Funny and fun.

I enjoyed this listen. Annie is funny. A quick thinker. Isn’t afraid yo say it how it is and is good at her job! Her friends are so loyal. Always had her back. Love them. Her sister is very kind. The performance was great. Some sentences were delivered weird…but that is definitely a ME thing.

Quick spoiler. STOP reading if you don’t want to know random things about the story.

Annie got so down in the dumps over Sam and stopped all contact with him. He had no idea what was happening. I felt like that was a bit extreme for the Annie that we were getting to know. What was the point of even bringing in her dad into the story and her extended family. They were absolutely awful and didn’t add anything. Maybe just to show how Sam was so honest and blunt?

All-in-all, a good story! Very enjoyable. I recommend it.

Perfect Rom Com But So Much More!

Lindsey is a sneaky writer. She honors the genre while imbuing her stories with so much more. It’s a truly stunning accomplishment to be able add so much depth and complexity to characters that in someone else’s hands could easily become a stereotype. She slips in beautiful turns of phrase and insights without losing the momentum of her playful writing style. I’m a 55 year old man reading this for a much needed distraction, yet I still found myself crying at the most surprising moments. Well done and damn you Lindsey Kelk. 😉

One in a million

It was so refreshing to listen to a book that was Sweet, funny and heartwarming.
The author of the book has a great sense of humor and I’m looking forward to reading more books by her.
The performance was wonderful! I don’t think I would’ve enjoyed reading it as much as listening to it. Loved hearing it with the English accent

Another lovely read!

This is the second book by Lindsey Kelk I’ve read and it’s just as wonderful as the first! Entirely different stories but both with good people, great writing, and realistic life events. Can’t wait to read another!

cute fun read

pretty predictable but with all of Lindsey's books, it's funny and sweet and an easy listen. I actually thought it was going to go in a different direction at one point. Without giving away a total spoiler I was surprised by the first conflict. When the second conflict happened I was like, oh there it is. I would have preferred that the second one never happened because it would have been nice to just break the same o same predicable problem. The fantastic thing about Lindsay's books are the unexpected funny parts- like really laugh out loud one liners. And the way the narrator would read it just added to the character and the humor. She's really good.

It’s a good next Lindsey Kelk book

It’s a nice listen. I loved the main character but the male character was a little too weird and the ending was kind of ‘a mess’. I liked the story though.
