On the scale of one to worst idea ever, agreeing to give the toast at her best friend's engagement party when she's been in love with him for three years was not Val's finest decision. Nor was accidentally confessing her love to him in front of all their guests, including his fiancee.

Boarding a plane that will take her literally anywhere to get away from the humiliation, Val is pleasantly surprised to find herself on the dazzlingly beautiful island of Reunion where she hopes she can heal her wounded pride, broken heart and bruised knees.

When a painful face mask experiment leads her to a fellow broken-hearted traveller, Alex, they decide to give each other a helping hand and follow a foolproof ten-step plan to get over their respective exes. And so begins their crazy adventure. What could possibly go wrong?

For more laugh-out-loud, swoon-worthy hijinks, don't miss Jo's other rom-coms, Love to Hate You, Burning Moon, Almost A Bride, Finding You and After the Rain.

A pure joy to read, full of many laugh out load moments and memorable scenes, 

There is the yacht trip that doesn't go quiet according to plan, the speech at an engagement party that kicks everything off, and even the whole airport scene ending up on a flight to somewhere Val has never heard of. 

So many highlights, and so much fun.  It is a bit of shame we don't see so much of her friends as we have in the other books in this series, but its due to that reason that its easily readable as a standalone. 

The main setting is Reunion Island, and was a fabulous location it is.  I could really picture Val and Alex's adventures as they together work through a 10 things list from a magazine, about getting over the love of your life. 

I can easily say that Jo Watson is getting better with every book, and coming up with even more amusing ideas for her characters,  This is easily one of my favourites in the series, and I can't wait to see what she writes next. 

Thank you to Netgalley and Headline Eternal for this copy which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
