Happy Monday, Savvy Readers! I hope you’re staying safe and well! Whether you’re working for home, or you’re an essential worker, chances are you could use a little pick-me-up, and this week’s featured read is perfect for putting a smile on your face because internationally bestselling author Mhairi McFarlane has returned with another rom-com that will split your sides with laughter! That’s right, this week’s featured read is none other than Mhairi’s latest literary offering If I Never Met You!
So what is Mhairi’s newest book about? When her partner of over a decade suddenly ends things, Laurie is left reeling—not only because they work at the same law firm and she has to see him every day. I mean, can you imagine anything worse?
Her once perfect life is in shambles and the thought of dating again in the age of Tinder is nothing short of horrifying. But when news of her ex’s pregnant girlfriend hits the office grapevine, Laurie realizes she has two options. Either take the humiliation lying down or show her ex and her office what she’s made of!
If you guessed that lying down is not an option, you’d be right! Especially once a chance encounter in a broken-down elevator with the office playboy opens up a new and exciting possibility.
Jamie Carter doesn’t believe in love, but he needs a respectable, steady girlfriend to impress their bosses. Laurie wants a hot new man to give the rumour mill something else to talk about. It’s the perfect proposition: a fauxmance played out on social media, with strategically staged photographs and a specific end date in mind. Can you say “Facebook official”?! With the plan hatched, Laurie and Jamie begin to flaunt their new couple status, to the astonishment—and jealousy—of their friends and colleagues. But there’s a fine line between pretending to be in love and actually falling for your fake boyfriend…
