He's my type on paper . . . but IRL?

Meet Jasmine.
- The quirky/cool photographer to a superstar blogger
- She's going on a date with a SUPER hot guy on the London Eye tonight
- Best friend Mila is her wifey for life
- This millennial is #LivingHerBestLife

But fast-forward a few hours, and the reality isn't quite so picture perfect. Jasmine hates her stuck-up blogger boss. She can barely afford rent in her stupid London flat. Her best friend seems to have all her sh*t together. Oh, and that date she was so excited about? She got dumped. On the London Eye. In the middle of a thunderstorm. With a bunch of tourists watching...

Best friend Mila decides that Jasmine needs a new 'type on paper', because Jasmine's current criteria is so off that her dating history is one long line-up of fools. So Mila challenges Jasmine to look once, if not twice, at the guys who wouldn't normally fit her 'type'. With nothing to lose, Jasmine accepts. Maybe, just maybe, she'll surprise herself.

You might be looking at the blurb and thinking that this is just another one of those always funny rom coms where the main character goes on a series of unfortunate dates with completely ridiculous situations where you end up rolling you eyes and being thankful you aren't on Tinder yorself! 

Well if you were thinking that - then stop as this is so much more original than that, and the dates involved well I loved every single one of those men!  It is though still really funny, but it is so much more than that. 

For most of the book I was wondering just what was so awful that Jasmine couldn't speak or think about her dad.  I had jumped to what I thought was a logical conclusion to be relieved that I was very wrong, and very surprised. 

It's a story where Mila, Jasmine's best friend insists that Jasmine go on seven dates all with men who don't fit her normal dating "type on paper", convinced that is where she is going wrong.   Watching Jasmine not only date outside her comfort zone, but also gain confidence, and start making the most of her working life too is really encouraging to see. 

I loved that due to her being a photographer to a superstar blogger, she was getting to visit assorted countries, but the travel lover in me would have loved to spend more time in each destination, but the quick glimpses were definitely good and gave a good feel for each country. 

The men she dates, well you may not come across all of them yourselves, but they didn't feel too stereotypical either, but just really great blokes with some incredibly interesting ideas for their dates.  

This is the second book I've read of Hannah Doyle's and just like The Year of Saying Yes,  I could barely put it down and was enjoying every last word of it. 

I found it the perfect book to read in my garden at the start of the Easter heatwave! I can't wait to see what this talented author writes next.
