Publisher's Summary

Everyone wants that special someone....

Annie Higgins has given up on love: she’s too busy trying to get her own business off the ground. But - infuriated by the advertising agency across the hall making fun of her job - Annie accepts their crazy challenge: to make a random stranger Instagram-famous in just 30 days.

And even when they choose Dr Samuel Page PhD, historian and hater of social media as her target, Annie’s determined to win the bet - whether Sam likes it or not.

But getting to know Sam means getting to know more about herself. And before the 30 days are out, Annie has to make a decision about what’s really important....

Funny, real and heart-meltingly romantic, Annie and Sam’s story is My Fair Lady for the social media age - and the perfect summer listen.

Absolutely loved this story

Absolutely loved this story. A Pygmalion re-vamp in a relatable setting with lovable characters that the reader can really invest in. So many lol moments. Spectacular performance by Ellie Heydon. This is a ten-star book!

I thought Ellie Heydon really captured Annie’s vibrancy and spirit. I adored rereading One in a Million via audiobook.

Another lovely read!

This is the second book by Lindsey Kelk I’ve read and it’s just as wonderful as the first! Entirely different stories but both with good people, great writing, and realistic life events. Can’t wait to read another!

cute fun read

pretty predictable but with all of Lindsey's books, it's funny and sweet and an easy listen. I actually thought it was going to go in a different direction at one point. Without giving away a total spoiler I was surprised by the first conflict. When the second conflict happened I was like, oh there it is. I would have preferred that the second one never happened because it would have been nice to just break the same o same predicable problem. The fantastic thing about Lindsay's books are the unexpected funny parts- like really laugh out loud one liners. And the way the narrator would read it just added to the character and the humor. She's really good.

It’s a good next Lindsey Kelk book

It’s a nice listen. I loved the main character but the male character was a little too weird and the ending was kind of ‘a mess’. I liked the story though.

One of my favorites!!!!!

If you are looking for a laugh-out-loud, feel good, love story, this is it! I hated for the story to end!
Hilarious characters and banter. I have been looking for something light-hearted and funny in such a dark time. This was the perfect ticket to a smile, giggle and outright laugh. Great story, narrator and ending. I enjoyed it so much. In my top 2 favorite books!

Love it

Very easy book to listen to, I love this all Lindsey Kelk’s books, I laugh out loud at parts, I’ll be sitting in my car listening to the book on my way to and from work lol’ing to myself.
I can relate to parts of the story, that why I like it so much, it’s a warm-hearted book, makes you feel good inside.
My next book is from Lindsey, dying to start it.

Modern-day My Fair Lady.

This is a modern day version of My Fair Lady which moves along at a good pace. I enjoyed the social media aspect.

I listened to this title as an audio book and it all was going along well until one of the main characters, Mia, suddenly became Miranda and then Mia and then Miranda and back again etc etc (you get the gist) in the last third of the book. Considering this cost over ten quid on Audible, I think that's pretty poor quality control. Some people might think me petty, but the constant mistake soured my enjoyment of the whole thing and left me frustrated at the writer/publisher/producer/proof-reader or whoever is prepared to take responsibility.

Slightly grating voice, equally unpleasant social media setting

While technically well written and not bad as a love story, I felt mildly disgusted by the artificiality of the social media and the weird priorities of the cyber kids with their insistence that this is modern life. In part this seems to be a point that the author is trying to make (don’t overdo it and have a leg in both worlds, cyber anx real), but I just couldn’t connect to the people and their inhumane focus/mind-sets. I also found the elaborate off-hand language off-putting.
The speaker’s voice has a grating quality and affected monotony which I found fitting to the story ‘s character but only further enhances the overall unpleasantness of the listening experience.
Not the bibliophile ‘s cup of tea in my opinion.

Sweet & Satisfying

A really nice easy going listen/read of a story that I didn't want to end. It had just the right amount of anticipation and what I especially loved is how relatable the characters are. Love a story with miscommunication that works itself out in the end. Just lovely.

Did not finish. Full of cliché. Narration was a bit flat too. Especially the narrators depiction of the man. Totally unconvincing.
