Mia Abbott’s move to Manchester was supposed to give her time and space from all the disastrous romantic choices she’s made in her past. But then the hot guy who lives opposite – the one who works out every day at exactly 10 a.m., not that Mia has noticed thank-you-very-much – starts leaving notes in his window…for her.

Bar owner Luke Doyle has his own issues to deal with but as he shows Mia the sites of her new city he also shows her what real romance looks like for the first time. And when he cooks up a signature cocktail in her honour, she realises that the man behind the bar is even more enticing than any of his creations. And once she’s had a taste she knows it will never be enough!

Absolutely loved the initial meeting between Mia and Luke, it is clear they have chemistry from the off, and just as clear that Kathryn Freeman is up to her normal fabulous levels of banter between our leads. 

Every conversation had me smiling and they had a unique way of communicating too which made a difference and added a different dimension to the book. 

And we slowly discover that despite first appearances that Luke may not be the sex obsessed ladies man that he comes across as, and that there is a real vulnerability to him and that he has hidden depths. 

And then there is Mia, who is a bit of a nerd, and who I could relate to in many ways, especially the take me as you see me approach and not continually bothering with what she is wearing or make up etc..  I also like her would have struggled to believe it if a "cool guy" was interested in me! 

I also loved the different colours Mia was dying her streaks and the various nicknames that Luke was coming up with for her. 

And the non dates that Luke and Mia go on as friends are really imaginative and give the reader as well as Mia a look at some of the hidden gems of places to go to in Manchester, as he is a part tour guide, since Mia has only just moved to Manchester from Somerset. 

It's just a really enjoyable romance where when we finally get a sex scene, well it was enough to make me hot under the collar,  It had me smiling throughout and it was just a pleasure to read. 

Thank you to One More Chapter and Netgalley for this copy which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
