Descripción

Best-selling author Mhairi McFarlane returns with another heartfelt romantic comedy perfect for fans of Josie Silver, Sophie Kinsella, or Sally Thorne.

If faking love is this easy...how do you know when it’s real?

When her partner of over a decade suddenly ends things, Laurie is left reeling—not only because they work at the same law firm and she has to see him every day. Her once perfect life is in shambles, and the thought of dating again in the age of Tinder is nothing short of horrifying. When news of her ex’s pregnant girlfriend hits the office grapevine, taking the humiliation lying down is not an option. Then, a chance encounter in a broken-down elevator with the office playboy opens up a new possibility.

Jamie Carter doesn’t believe in love, but he needs a respectable, steady girlfriend to impress their bosses. Laurie wants a hot new man to give the rumor mill something else to talk about. It’s the perfect proposition: a fauxmance played out on social media, with strategically staged photographs and a specific end date in mind. With the plan hatched, Laurie and Jamie begin to flaunt their new couple status, to the astonishment—and jealousy—of their friends and colleagues. But there’s a fine line between pretending to be in love and actually falling for your charming, handsome, fake boyfriend....

  • (3/5)
    Nice story, maybe too gullible. I didn't like narrators interpretation of Laurie's voice, she made her sound like a bully...

  • (4/5)
    captivating light-hearted romance with British voices. no worry of graphic sexual scenes
  • (3/5)
    Lovely slow burn, good chemistry between the love interests. I’m just not personally a fan of closed door romance. If this is your thing, then this book is for you! Still a solid good read for me.
  • (5/5)
    This book had me from the start. So so good
  • (3/5)
    I enjoyed the self-discovery in this story more than the actual romance. I actually loved these characters together, I just wish the author included more of their “couple-ness” once they finally came together! The ending fell verrry rushed and I’m a girl who thoroughly enjoys my smut. This was definitely G-rated.
  • (3/5)
    This definitely falls under the category of 'Chick Lit'. It's light, funny, and romantic -- in other words perfect for these uncertain times. I did think they book started out strong, but the end felt way too sappy to the point where I had a few eye rolls. But I loved the main character and could definitely see this as a fun Romcom movie.

    Cute story that could make an even cuter movie, I just felt like the ending was rushed. It went from like 0 to 100 real quick.

    A delightful romantic comedy, If I Never Met You is Mhairi McFarlane’s sixth novel.Laurie is devastated when her boyfriend of eighteen years suddenly announces he is leaving her, claiming the need to ‘find’ himself, and then completely shattered when she learns just weeks later that Dan not only has a new girlfriend, but that the girlfriend is pregnant.Desperate to retain a shred of dignity, especially given she and Dan still have to work together in the same law firm, Laurie strikes a deal with a colleague. Jamie needs help to rehabilitate his reputation as a lothario to have a shot at making partner, and being seen to enjoy a new relationship with a handsome and successful man might make Dan rethink his decision to breakup with Laurie. A fake relationship will benefit them both...as long as no one ever finds out.The bare bones of the plot of If I Never Met You is not by any means unique, but the execution by McFarlane has real appeal. Yes this is a romantic comedy that exploits the enemies to lovers trope, but there is also a surprising depth to the story.In particular, McFarlane’s characters move beyond the expected stereotypes, subverting them in ways that are thoughtful and realistic. I felt as if I could relate to Laurie, even though I don’t share her experience, and empathised with her feelings and behaviour. On first impression, Jamie appears to be a typical ‘Alpha’ hero, but it quickly becomes clear that appearances can be deceiving.I love McFarlane’s sense of humour, which can be very dry, but also makes judicious use of the cheap laugh. I also really admire the way in which the author utilises a full range of emotion without becoming too farcical, nor too angsty, it’s a difficult balancing act that she gets just right.If I Met Never You is witty, heartfelt and utterly engaging.

    I struggled to get through those first chapters, Laurie seemed pathetic and completely unfair and ridiculous to Dan. However, after rolling my eyes through half of the book it picked up. Jamie is a great character and the second half of the book is delightful and has some true insights into sexual harassment and male entitlement in the workplace which I found fantastic. In the end it is a book about self love and self value which we can all relate to.
