I LOVED this book. During this pandemic crazy time, the quick, flirty & fun romance novels have been giving me life and I was overly impressed by this debut title by Elizabeth Neep. As my first book this month, it really helped start my reading month great!
Jess is a heart broken twenty something just trying to find her place in the world, literally. As everyone around her seems to have it all together, she just seems to step all over herself and fail… until Sydney. Jess runs into her ex boyfriend, Sam after moving to a new country with no job, no home and nowhere to go next. So naturally, she moves in with him into his spare bedroom, in the house she shared with his now fiancé.
Is it fate? Or will Jess mess this up for herself too? Will her newfound life turn into what should’ve been? Will she finally find her place in the world, giving her everything she ever dreamed of?
Elizabeth Neep nailed it with this one, with a great plot and characters who kept it interesting and incredibly relatable for me. I FELT for Jess, every step of the way & she had me cheering her on through the very end!
I highly recommend this title – as Elizabeth herself says in the letter to to the reader – it’s a book for who anyone who feels like they’re trying, and FAILING – the book may not have the answers, but it’s a feel good story worth reading for a fabulous pick me up! Her second title with Bookouture will be coming out in September 2020, I’ll be sure to watch for it as well.
Thank you to Netgalley, Elizabeth Neep and Bookouture publishing for the ARC of this title in exchange for my honest review.
