Publisher's Summary

I almost gave up on love. My ex, who called his private parts ‘Nigel’, was enough to put me off men forever. But then I met Joe.  

Alice thought she’d found Mr Right. Her blue-eyed boyfriend, Joe, gives her butterflies, makes her bacon sandwiches when she’s hungover and doesn’t have a nickname for any of his body parts.  

She should have known it was too good to be true. Because one day, Alice and Joe bump into Zoe. According to him, Zoe’s ‘just an old friend’. But Alice saw the way they froze and heard the strange note in Joe’s voice when he said her name.  

Then, out of the blue, Zoe needs a place to live. And Joe has the bright idea of inviting her and her fluffy ginger cat, Frazzle, to stay with them. Alice tries her hardest not to feel threatened. But the thing is, Zoe doesn’t survive off microwave meals, or go days without washing her glossy copper-coloured hair, or accidentally get mascara in her contact lenses.  

Joe’s ex might be pretty much perfect, but there’s no way that Alice will let Zoe steal him. She’s on a mission to prove that three (four, if you count the cat) is definitely a crowd. 

This fabulous, feel-good book is for anyone who has ever got a little too drunk and checked out their partner’s ex! (We’ve all been there....) 

Fans of romantic comedies by Sophie Kinsella and Lindsey Kelk and TV shows like Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Jane the Virgin will love this utterly relatable listen.

Life doesn’t always go to plan

Wonderfully light easy read with substance, lots of laughs and a few tears. I read an listened to this one so I could seamlessly listen when I was not able to read. There is one dark moment and I thoroughly enjoyed it. A young couple Joe and Alice move into a flat together and are on track to become lawyers. One night before she meets Joe for the first time in the lift, Alice goes to dinner with her much older boss and that night changes her whole career and she starts working in a pub. Joe thinks she has taken time out until she figures out what field in law she would like. The whole story about that night is told towards the end of the book.

One day they bump into Joe’s ex Zoe and a few days later as there is a deficit in money coming in Joe asks if his ex can rent the spare room to help with the cash flow. Alice reluctantly agrees, then things do not take the turn she thinks and she also finds out a lot about herself.....

Worth a listen

Loved the characters in this and really enjoyed it until the last few chapters. Definitely worth a listen but I was a little disappointed that the last few chapters felt a little forced /rushed.

Good oration, interesting story

Alice swaps being a lawyer for being a bartender. Relationships are tested and new friends made. Worth a read.

Really like this author

I like how this author always seems to include other important topics amidst the chick lit. Always makes it a much more interesting listen!
