Publisher's Summary

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...

    "much more to this book than I expected"

    This turned out to be more than a predictable romance novel. I could have saved a lot of money on therapy as I learned so much from Neve.

    "Loved"

    As a woman who was always concerned about her weight I could really relate to Neve. Neve is smart and funny. She meets Max, who is probably one of my favorite Sarra Manning male characters right below Dylan from the Diary of a Crush books. It is more erotic than any Manning book I've read, but I didn't mind that. Good read.

    "The Best Book Everrrr!!!"

    Wow! I don't even know where to begin in review of this book! Let me say, i've never been more captivated, more in the moment, feeling every bit of the anguish and exhiliration of a roller-coaster romance, as I was reading this book. The narrator was perfect, the descriptive detail had me on the edge of my seat, and the characters were so relatable I found myself dreading the end! Out of 15 books I've listened to this year, this, the 16th one, was my favorite of all. This books touches on so many wonderful themes...body-image, self-deprication, feeling unworthy of love...I've caught myself thinking the same things Nieve did throughout, and wishing we could be friends in real life. I definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys adult fiction and experiencing the lows and highs of life's journeys in love.

    "Top of My Favorites List`"
    Any additional comments?

    I love funny chit lit, just about all I listen to, and this book is at the top of my list! It is absolutely witty and laugh out loud funny in some spots. Best use of humor I've seen in any book in this category. The characters are so relatable and lovable, and while romance is the focus of the plot, it's fun to get lost in all aspects of the main character's life - work, social, family, neighbors, diet, health. <br/><br/>It's nice and long, in a I'm-so-glad-I'm-not-getting-close-to-the-end kinda way!<br/><br/>Can't wait to pick out my next Sarra Manning and Julie Maisey books!

    "Right to the heart"

    I found myself split at first on this book. There's humor, there's romance and there's lots of sexy moments. However, I found her naivete annoying sometimes, and her self-deprecating comments even worst. And still, if as a woman I'm honest, there are plenty of times when my mind has played the same stream of consciousness that this woman keeps playing in her head. The moment I admitted to this, the book just really clicked for me. A credit well spent!!

    "Very good !!!"
    Would you listen to You Don't Have to Say You Love Me again? Why?

    Yes!!! without a dout this is the kind of book that allows you to see your self in the female character (Neve), there were moments in the story that had me laughing, moments of anger and frustration and moments when I knew exactly how Neve was feeling.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I think the best thing about this story is that it's an honest one, I've read books were the female character has overweight problems and the male character falls in love with the girl, tells her she is beautiful in every way and that he accepts her in all her glory. <br/>Come on people !!!! life is not like that, the truth is that for overweight girls and women in general sometimes life is not that simple and this book tells it like it is. <br/>This book is defenitly realistic but it also has a beautiful and credible love story <br/>


    What about Julie Maisey’s performance did you like?

    Yes I like her performance, I think she did a great job.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Maybe not in one sitting because it had parts that were a little dificult for me to listen and I had to take a moment to think about them.<br/>

    "LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS BOOK"

    This book was about weight, love, family, insecurity and so much more. The characters were well written and developed through this story. I really cared about them. This is a book I will listen to again.

    And let's not forget the narrator. One of the best I've heard. Her reading was true to the characters.

    This is a GOOD book.

    Story
    "Excellently English"

    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.

    Story
    "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.
