Nicola Brown doesn’t like to lose control. Her flat is always meticulously tidy and her weekly meals carefully planned; Nicola keeps her life in order. When her carefree colleague Caroline challenges Nicola to find a date for Valentine’s Day, it’s a surprise to them both when Nicola agrees.
As Nicola’s search for a man begins, she is thrown in at the deep end – sometimes quite literally – of the dating scene. From men more likely to sell their mother than open their wallet, to those who are determined to find a girlfriend who shares their passion for extreme sports, Nicola has to run the full gamut of dodgy dates. But as the deadline looms closer, Nicola realises it isn’t so bad to lose control. It turns out that trying to get a love life can be rather a lot of fun…
Wonderfully likeable characters and a realistic plot.
The dates in How To Get a (Love) Life can be excruciatingly awkward, but they're hilarious... a great read.
A very funny, very real portrayal of someone struggling with an extremely large rut... Nicola's search for a date and, ultimately, for someone to love is ridiculously funny, sweet and had a proper 'sigh out loud and hug my kindle end.' I'm sad I've finished it.
With crazy, laugh out loud dating disasters, How to Get a (Love) Life is a funny and warm read that will leave you smiling at the end.
I really, really enjoyed this book! It's full of laugh out loud moments and the charming prose leads you through Nicola's story in a way which allows you to invest yourself in it.
The book became funnier and funnier. It was like Rosie had snuck into my life, taken notes and made a comical story out of it. It was a highly realistic plot with plenty of twists and turns.
Hilarious... If you prefer your romance stories gutsy and real rather than mushy and clichéd, you'll gallop through this.
