What it’s about?
When Liv’s high-flying career goes off the rails, she finds herself working at a glitzy new gin bar to pay the bills. She’s never let romance distract her, but with one very hot colleague, a mysterious online follower who might just be her soulmate, and a lot of cocktails, her dating life is about to be shaken up…
But is Liv looking for a sparkling flirtation, or something a little stronger?
Sometimes you have to face up to your past, seize your future, and mix your own recipe for happy ever after…
What I think:
This a really great book to read right now!
It’s romantic and witty but has real, relatable characters and a lot of humour.
Liv thinks she is going to be promoted but find herself being made redundant instead. In the cut-throat job market, finding a new job is not as easy as she thinks it is going to be. She’s also coping with the realisation that people you thought were friends were actually just colleagues – something that I’m sure we can all relate to.
I really empathised with Liv’s efforts to keep up appearances and remain positive in front of her former colleagues.
Liv finds herself working in a fancy hotel gin bar, which sounds amazing and I wanted to go there. Her blog posts are warm and witty and she does exaggerate for effect, she captures the very human element of modern dating dilemmas that she witnesses. And while her blog posts do ultimately get Liv into some bother, I think she learns as much about herself as the people she is observing.
I won’t spoil the romantic ending, which while not a huge surprise was definitely the outcome that wanted as a reader. I’m sure you’ll agree when you read it.
