Author: K. L. Jessop

Year of publication: 2019. The author kindly gave me a copy to read and review

The heroine: Romance author Adele Roberts

The hero: Bar owner Drew Adams

The blurb: I, Adele Roberts, am a romance author, and it’s the most remarkable career in the world, until I lose myself in the depths of my characters’ love lives and realise theirs are way better than my own.

Determined to find out if ‘Mr Perfect‘ exists, I do the one thing I never thought I would: I sign up for online dating.

Yes, that’s right. I can only imagine it’s a disaster waiting behind the click of a button—or is it?

Enter Drew Adams. He’s hot, dreamy and exactly like the kind of heroes I write about in my books, which means he is too good to be true. Right?

Well, there’s only one way to find out…

Standalone or series: Standalone

The review: I adored this charming, amusing story. Adele Roberts is a successful romance author who’s getting over being dumped by her cheating ex. Keen to get her back in the saddle, her two best friends sign her up to an online dating service, with predictable disastrous results.

Adele spends most of her days writing in a coffee/cocktail bar owned by Drew Adams. Adele thinks Drew is ridiculously attractive, but he doesn’t look twice at her… or so she thinks. Little does she know that Drew thinks she’s the most beautiful woman he’s seen. When Adele uses her lost phone – which is clearly in her pocket – as an excuse to go back to the bar as it’s closing one night, Drew decides to take advantage of the situation and kisses her. They end up in Drew’s apartment above the bar having the hottest sex of their lives.

Adele doesn’t tell anyone about her dates with Drew, not even her best friends, because their relationship quickly becomes precious to her. Eventually, they spill the beans at another dating event her friends have set up, and their reactions were hilarious.

There was a lot of funny lines in this book, moments where you laughed and moments where you sighed happily. I adored Drew and Adele, and found myself cheering them on. A great novella to read when you want a good love story but are short on time.
