About The Book

Ava is sick of online dating. She’s always trusted her own instincts over an algorithm, anyway, and she wants a break from it all. So when she signs up to a semi-silent, anonymous writing retreat in glorious Italy, love is the last thing on her mind.
Until she meets a handsome stranger. . . All she knows is that he’s funny, he’s kind and – she soon learns – he’s great in bed. He’s equally smitten, and after a whirlwind, intoxicating affair, they pledge their love without even knowing each other’s real names.
But when they return home, reality hits. They’re both driven mad by each other’s weird quirks and annoying habits, from his eccentric, naked-sauna-loving family to her terribly behaved, shirt-shredding dog. As disaster follows disaster, it seems that while they love each other, they just can’t love each other’s lives. Can they overcome their differences to find one life, together?

My Thoughts

If you are following me for a while, I am sure you are aware that I am a big fan of Sophie Kinsella books, they always make me laugh and keep me turning pages without noticing, easy reads but always they leave a smile on your face! This is not the typical book we are used to as a reader; it begins where normally books/movies end. The two main characters after a crazy week together (and without knowing much of each other) they have confessed their love for each other forever, now they are waiting for the rainbow at the end. As I am sure you well know, life is not a storybook ending, so our main characters Ava and Matt have to return to their real lives, where routines and little things can make go crazy to anyone. I’ll admit that I really enjoyed this read, it’s different and with an ironic humor to make the reader realize that the perfect couple never exists, that if you want to be with someone the most important thing (a part from love) is the couple’s work and acceptance. Ava is the typical hippy, nothing stresses her and lives in a rainbow world. On the other hand, Matt is strict, likes rules and routine. They have nothing in common, at least is what it seems, but if they want their new relation to work they will have to find a neutral way to meet and accept each other, if not, they don’t have a future together. If you are looking for a dose of reality in a romantic couple, this is your book, funny and realistic you’ll believe in love again! Ready to discover “The Love of Your Life”?
