Girls like Neve Slater don’t get gorgeous guys like William. But William’s been in L A for three years, and Neve’s been slimming down in preparation for his return. Then her sister Celia points out that if Neve wants William to think she's an experienced love-goddess then she’d better get some experience - a man to show her the ropes, like Celia’s colleague Max. And since he’s not Neve’s type, she certainly won’t fall for him...

Yes, not that I have read the printed version , but Sarra Manning really brought this book to life. It was just a pleasure to listen tp throughout.
I really love it when I buy a book that I have never heard of, purely on ratings or recomendations and find it to be a little gem . Absolutly loved it.
This is a very English novel that has lots of really funny moments and also endearing. Neve is the typical mid twenties girl who falls in love with an idea of a man and will desperately try to change her appearance in the hope that he will love her back. This book covers all the hangups that most women have had sometime during their lives. Ms Manning has encapture many funny moments in this book which will make you laugh out loud as well as gush with lots of 'Ahhhs' and gasp with frustration.
"A funny, intelligent and touching romance"
I genuinely grew to like Neve as the story progressed. She's not just a girl obsessing about losing a few pounds in weight, in preparation for her dream man. She's an intelligent driven woman who has suffered hard knocks but is still one of the most loveable heroines I have read about in a long time. She's not perfect but that's the whole point. This book makes you realise that perfection is an over-rated aspiration anyway.
If you are looking for a book that is funny and romantic but with a plausible and thought provoking story, this could be the one for you.
"Saucy content with a brilliant storyline"
Yes - 100%. Compelling listen
Max - honest and upfront character
The narrator brought the characters to life and her tone was easy to listen to
A brilliant book that I couldn't stop listening to. The characters are excellent and you can imagine each individually. Looking forward to listening to the next book written by Sarra Manning
