Publisher's Summary

Sam Becker loves—or, okay, likes—his job. Sure, managing a bed-and-bath retailer isn't exactly glamorous, but it's good work, and he gets on well with the band of misfits who keep the store running. He could see himself being content here for the long haul. Too bad, then, that the owner is an infuriating git.

Jonathan Forest should never have hired Sam. It was a sentimental decision, and Jonathan didn't get where he is by following his heart. Determined to set things right, Jonathan orders Sam down to London for a difficult talk…only for a panicking Sam to trip, bump his head, and maybe accidentally imply he doesn't remember anything?

Faking amnesia seemed like a good idea when Sam was afraid he was getting sacked, but now he has to deal with the reality of Jonathan's guilt—as well as the unsettling fact that his surly boss might have a softer side to him. There's an unexpected freedom in getting a second shot at a first impression…but as Sam and Jonathan grow closer, can Sam really bring himself to tell the truth, or will their future be built entirely on one impulsive lie?

Cute story with an amazing narrator

Really heartwarming Christmas read! Characters are likeable and relatable especially if you worked in retail. The narrator was amazing and made this audiobook one of my faves

Funny and beautiful

This was a funny and beautiful book. I loved Sam - so down to earth and caught up in his lies and his boss. As an Australian, I also loved the accents of the amazing narrator, Will Watt. Alexis Hall - another brilliant book.

Another brilliant Alexis Hall!

Absolutely loved it. Kept me up half the night, listening and laughing and hanging out for the happy ever after. Alexis Hall, you beauty, nailed it again!

Loved every minute

Another absolute gem by Alexis Hall. Only complaint I can ever make about his books is that they are so genuinely laugh out loud funny that I actually feel embarrassed listening in public.
Lovely romance as well - both characters are just truly heartbreaking and charming in equal measures. I absolutely adored every minute of their story and was sad for it to end.

It’s the Guinea Pig ornament for me!

Always love an Alexis Hall book! Will Watt is amazing as usual but his talent for accents is perfect for this story.
I really enjoyed the humour and shop colleague drama. The main characters challenge each other as they both learn to trust and grow as people. Which I really felt was done right and not rushed.

Grumpy/Sunshine Fake Amnesia Boss/Employee

There's lots going on in a very compressed time frame here but it's all charmingly and amusingly handled by Alexis Hall.

Sam's work colleagues, Jonathan's family & even Sam's cat add plenty of interest and colour to this tale of unlikely love for two guys that both really need a generous helping of it in their lives.

Google was needed to look up a few localised places and things but that's always fun to do.

Brilliantly narrated and voiced by Will Watt, even the Gollum's trills of protestation.

Hilarious and emotionally devastating

Absolutely brilliant!
Alexis Hall's usual high quality and style. I was in tears from laughter within the first 10 minutes, and thoroughly homesick throughout
The narration was brilliant, emotive and immersive
Highly recommend to all and sundry
