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.

 

 

My review

I guess everybody has a type. You know the feeling when ‘he’ enters a room and your eyes and body betray you and your head is outnumbered even though a voice is yelling inside you to not go there again and have your heart broken.

Time for a u-turn, right? When you head off for pastures new, you realize that the world is at your feet. You only have to take the bull by the horns and take a leap.

This is a story about finding your way in life and standing up for yourself, about putting the past behind you and looking forward and about being on the right path to happiness and love.

The book put a smile on my face and made me see that sometimes you need to step away from what you thought was the right thing because you have been doing it for years already. Sometimes you have to believe more in yourself and just go for it.

A very enjoyable story. 4 stars.

Thank you, Hannah Doyle and Random Things Tours.
