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...

The narrator is great, the characters are well developed, and the story is well told. Long, but certainly not boring.
I basically never read a book twice - but this one I did. And after the second read, I think I will save it in my library for a future third time. I found this book very entertaining, funny and romantic; just what I had been looking for. The narration was perfect too. I recommend.
"Gripping and unmissable"
I rarely get so caught up in a book that I find myself planning my journeys between meetings alone... just so that I can listen to my book rather than talking about the latest juicy court case or staff shortage issues with my colleagues!
This storyline is encapsulating, touching and a real eye-opener to just how self-centred us women can unintentially be... I rate this book highly and will follow Ms Manning for a while.
I couldn't put this away! It is brilliant! If you love a good, modern day, chick read including romance, and comedy sprinkled in for fun this is the book for you! It's well worth the time and sucks you in! Most girls can relate to t in some way it's completely genius!
Didnt want this to end, a great story , well read. Some racey bits, dont give it to your granny.
I loved the story and congratulate Julie Maisey on her fantastic narration. She has a different voice for every character. How does she do it?! She brings the whole thing to life and I will be listening to it again. I highly recommend this very entertaining book. Be warned, you will resent any interruptions to your listening!!
"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
