What if your plus one could be the one…?

Cara has officially run out of men. Her most recent dates have gone from bad to worse, and when her dating app informs her there is no one left in her area to choose from, she is at a dead end.

But with a summer of events ahead of her, she needs to find a solution, fast; someone to keep her company at the never-ending weddings, family gatherings and gender reveal parties that she can’t face going to alone.

So when she meets handsome, confident, Millsy on a night out she may be in luck. They could not be more different in personality, but he too has a summer of events ahead and is desperate to get his family off his back about finding a ‘nice girl’. What if they made a pact to help each other out and be a plus one for the summer? Just as friends of course…?

A brand new romantic comedy from bestseller Portia MacIntosh, perfect for fans of Zara Stoneley, Sophie Ranald and Mhairi McFarlane.

My Thoughts

I’m devastated.

I’m devastated that this wonderful novel had to end – I honestly could read about Cara and Joe all day and I’m seriously hoping there is another novel in the pipeline containing these two.  I’m equally devastated that I have never come across Portia’s novels before but also excited to have a found a new author who I think I have fallen in love with.

I started this book last night before I went to sleep thinking I would read a few chapters. Yeah right!  1:00am and 30% in and I had to force myself to put it down. It was the first thing I picked up this morning and didn’t stop until I’d finished.  I was smitten from the very first pages.

I loved the whole plot of this novel, two people who need dates for events but had run out of suitors.  Each event brought with it some tale of disaster and each event brought Cara and Joe closer together.  I rooted for them throughout the whole book.

Cara is such a real and relatable character.  I love that she is a strong character on her own but isn’t afraid to admit that she’d like to find a man to connect with.  she’s confident intelligent and I just adored her.  Joe was the perfect book boyfriend.  I loved his cheeky sense of humour and his confident but not cocky attitude to life.

The writing is seamless and grounded in reality.  The pages turned themselves and I found myself wanting more and more once I got to the end.  This is a perfect romance novel to sit and escape into but I warn you – you’ll not want to put it down until it’s finished.  A completely adorable novel that I cannot gush over enough.
