‘For anyone who’s woken up heart-bruised and hungover, wondering when the compass called “adulthood” is supposed to start pointing in the right direction, meet Noni Blake, your new superhero guide. This book is a joyous and hilarious romp around the world and back. Sexy in all the right places and squirm-inducing in all the others. Christian is a must-read author for anyone who loves their rom-coms real and utterly binge-able.’—Bri Lee, author of Beauty
A quirky, feel-good romantic comedy about creating the life you want
Noni didn’t expect to be starting over again at the age of thirty-six. But eighteen months after the end of her long-term relationship, she knows it’s time to find out what’s next.
While an encounter with a sexy blonde firefighter is a welcome entry back into the dating world, Noni soon realises she’s looking for more than just a series of brief—if pleasurable—encounters.
That’s how she finds herself travelling to Europe to track down the one that got away: the alluring, elusive Molly. But Europe has other surprises in store, not least of which is Beau, a tall, sexy, tattooist from Edinburgh…
"A laugh-out-loud romantic comedy about learning to fall in love with yourself, first and foremost. Noni Blake is the flirtatious, foul-mouthed, and flawed heroine you’ve been searching for—think Bridget Jones meets Queer as Folk. Claire Christian writes with fierce kindness and protectiveness over her readers; there’s no way you’ll finish this story without feeling better about yourself. This book is an antidote to complacency; Noni will inspire you to fight for the life and love you deserve, even if who you’re fighting against is yourself."—Michelle Law
