A Passionate Love Affair with a Total Stranger by Lucy Robinson

book picDisclaimer: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Summary:

Charley Lambert has worked hard at creating a perfect life. She has an aspirational flat, a job of international significance and a very good pair of legs, thanks to a rigorous health and fitness regime. Best of all, her boss has asked her out after seven years’ hard flirting and a covert fumble in a cleaning cupboard.

Then she breaks her leg in three places, watches her boss propose to someone else and – horror – is forced to hand over her job to her nasty deputy.

Charley, a certified workaholic, fears that she will go mad. ‚Ä®Dangerously bored, she starts helping people who are talentless at internet dating. Then William arrives in her inbox and rocks her world. Helpless, she watches herself fall in love with him and discovers she’s not who she thought she was.

But can she turn her back on her old life – all for a total stranger?

My Thoughts:

This book is hysterical! The main character, Charley Lambert, leads on crazy, hectic life. At times, it almost seems like every minute of her life is accounted for and she barely has time to think, let alone anything else. But, that all changes when she breaks her leg and is forced to take some time away from work. During this time, she decides to start her own business, and she has the perfect niche idea in mind. Author Lucy Robinson does a really great job at creating a story that is realistic and enjoyable, and not too predictable, like Chick Lit often times is. The characters were genuine and honest and the story flows flawlessly, which is hard for a book that features so many comedic twists and turns. Be on the lookout for¬† John MacAllister. He is probably one of my favorite characters in the book and I really enjoyed watching him blossom. Overall, this book is quite enjoyable and I am so pleased with Lucy as an author. She is quite talented and I can’t wait to read more from her.

I highly recommend this book.
