Finding love isn’t always black and white...

You: kind, piano-playing sex godMe: hopelessly romantic charity shop manager Honeysuckle Jones has a problem, and her best friends Nell and Tash are on a mission to help her solve it. She needs a man – a caring, intelligent, funny man. But most importantly, a man who’s good with his hands... Luckily Honey’s new neighbour – moody, antisocial ex-chef Hal – fails on almost every count. Even though the chemistry between them is electric, he’s obviously wrong for her in every way. But when Honey discovers the devastating reason for his moods she decides to give him another chance. And discovers that the best songs aren’t always in tune... A hilarious, feel-good, sexy romantic comedy for fans of Lucy Diamond, Paige Toon and Giovanna Fletcher.

My Thoughts

Absolutely freaking hilarious! There are some things in this that just should not be read! I just laughed, and laughed, and laughed! There were some massively serious parts, as in all romances, we have the character arc, and the meet (which went atrociously), getting to know you… etc. but unlike many books this had so, so much more!

Both the Honey and Hal are just divine characters. I loved them both equally. I wanted to know Hal more but his reclusive demeanor just made me love him all the more!

The only thing that struck me as odd, at first, was that Honey was in no way thrown off by his lack of door opening. I mean, if you went to a door and knocked, after a minute or so you would probably go away right? Not Honey! That girl is as stubborn as it gets. Maybe it’s the fact that she thinks he’s a total jerk (and really he is at times) but she just keeps going back for more! I wanted to yell at her to stop being stubborn and then yell at her when she wasn’t going to talk to him!

Needless to say this story is full of twists and turns. It is fun at every point of the way though. Honey is a bit of a mess and it shows but her sweet stubbornness is her redemptive quality. I did not find out what Hal’s was until later in the story but like Honey I just keep wanting her to go to his door. Even if only to find some answers to the mysterious, reclusive man that he is!

The other plots actually add to the story instead of taking away. There is a lot going on in Honey’s life, much like actual life, and she has a lot of people looking to her. With everything and everyone falling around her it is a wonder she can actually get out of bed! Kat French somehow brings all of it together to make a fabulous ending, and one that I was not expecting, which is tough for a romance! And the side characters are just as great as Honey is! What a delightful mixture of characters.

I am not absolutely in love with Kat French and cannot wait to read more of her stuff!
