Description

In January, Rachel Ryan's New Year's Resolutions are fairly predictable. Exercise more, put money into savings before spaffing it all on clothes, remember ridiculous rule that potatoes don't count towards your 5-a-day...

Before long, though, the year ahead of her is very much not going to plan. When the creative agency Rachel works for is taken over, one of the new suits in the office is very familiar. And very handsome. Surely it can't be... Jack Harper. The man she has spent years trying to forget. Not only is Rachel now working with him, she has regular sightings of the gorgeous woman Jack cheated on her with - who happens to be plastered to the side of every London bus.

Thank goodness for Tom, who is always there to listen (and pour wine). But when work stirs up her most painful memories, her best friend makes a major announcement and Jack dials up the charm, Rachel starts to question everything.

As life throws her a world of crazy, will Rachel have to make some very different resolutions?

Perfect for fans of Beth O'Leary and Ruth Jones.

I absolutely love rom com/ chick lit books. I mean what's not to love, romantic storylines, a will they won't they tossle, funny laugh out loud moments, a uplifting book that will make you smile from ear to ear. All this plus great characters, great settings and the ability to take you away from all the mess and worry in the world at the moment can be found inside this book. Loved it.

Thank you NetGalley for the opportunity to read an early release of this book. I haven't read such a great book in such a long time. A bomb gets dropped into Rachel's life when her old boyfriend, who broke her heart, shows up at her workplace. Throughout the whole book, I was in suspense about whether (1) he actually is a good guy and (2) will they get back together or (3) is it all a lie? That could've been the story in itself, but I love how the author added in the complexity of the always reliable friend Tom, who also is in Rachel's life - and has clear disapproval about the old boyfriend. Who will she end up with.......? Rachel struggles with many of the same issues that many women can relate to. Personal insecurities, navigating male friends, that nagging mom, best friends getting married and moving on from single life, unresolved ex's, and the list goes on and on. This book is SO good. It's officially made my favorites list (which as an avid reader, is a hard list to crack)!!!

age: 12+ tw/cw: cancer, sibling death, manipulation, cheating, sexism, racism, homophobia, parental abandonment genres: fictioin, romance, rom com tropes: love triangle, second chance romance, workplace romance, friends to lovers, forced proximity my ratiing: 4.5/5 stars (9/10) This book takes hilarious wit, deep heartwrenching moments and stunning romance and rolls it all into an amazing narrative that I *could not* put down. I loved the workplace elements of the story and the friendships and side characters were beautifully developed. The slow realisation of the main characters' feelings for each other was exquisite and I laughed out loud so many times. Some of the themes of loneliness hit hard, as well as themes of isolation and hiding parts of yourself.

This book appealed to me for more than the fun, although there is that. I'm a planner from way back, and I love nothing more than goal setting, but it can be particularly difficult when life doesn't exactly go to plan! I was keen to read Rachel Ryan's perspective on all of this, and enjoy getting to know her character. So yes, it's a fun adventure, with great characters, but this story also takes you deeper into some bigger issues. I recommend this one! Thanks to NetGalley for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Romcom With Heart… Resolutions are usually a fairly predictable affair and are also, fairly predictably, broken early on as life often throws constant obstacles into an otherwise, perhaps, predictable path. Rachel Ryan, with her somewhat predictable resolutions, is a perfect example. Romcom with a big heart, often emotional themes dealt well with dollops of humour and wit. A heartwarming tale.

If you fancy a superb light read that gives you all the feels, then this is your read. Rachel Ryan stumbles into our hearts via a bush - as she watches her boyfriend of 3 years seduce a willowy model and frets over how to escape the scene unnoticed! Hilarious and heartbreaking. Jumping forwards 10 years and Rachel still has little romantic success as she fights off unwanted advances from an increasingly stalker-like Lawrence, finds herself in the awkward position of working alongside her ex - up close and very personal and discovers new elements to Tom, the friend who has been by her side in London for many years. Rachel takes us on all her ups and downs, with lots of laughter, a few tears and lots of tugging on the heartstrings. This has been my favourite romantic comedy of the year . There is nothing better than that happy contented buzz when you finish a book like this that is just fizzing with sexual tension, great humour and love .
