Publisher's Summary

Gemma didn’t expect her life to look like this. She’s still living with her mother, who steals her leggings and tells her off for leaving crumbs in the butter. After 20 failed interviews she thought she’d got her dream job as a journalist - except it turns out to be writing articles about cats that look like George Clooney. Luckily she has her wonderful boyfriend, Jack, to help her forget just how awful things are.

Then Jack dumps her out of the blue. With nothing but her childhood teddy bear, Stanley, and a whole heap of heartbreak, Gemma resolves to turn things around. She throws herself into her new job, and soon she’s hanging out with cheeky, golden-haired hunk Charlie, eating in swanky restaurants and sipping trendy cocktails - and her old life seems like a distant memory.

But it’s not long until her shiny new world starts to lose its sparkle - and Gemma misses the days of wearing battered pink converse and eating peanut butter on toast in bed. Then Jack turns up, backpack in tow, and things start to go wrong with Charlie. "Out with the old, in with the new", the saying goes. But what happens if neither one is quite right?

This laugh-out-loud romantic comedy is for anyone who’s ever cried their eyes out to love songs after a breakup or accidentally drunk-texted their ex. Fans of Sophie Kinsella and Lindsey Kelk will love this unmissable listen, which is all about falling in love with the most important person: yourself!

This book was previously published as The Truth About Gemma Grey.

Pretty ordinary

The story just didn’t hook me in, ever. It was almost a chore to finish it. Not like other books that have been recommended on here that are similar to books I have liked. Not bad, just not good. Save your credit.

Entertainingly easy listening

Enjoyed this story right from the start through to its really well completed finish. Whilst this is definitely a light hearted piece it also managed to dip realistically yet compassionately into some particularly sensitive topics. I'm just about to see if Sophie Ranald has some other books out in audio land as I really enjoyed the character development and story-line in "Out with the Ex, in with the New".

Fun read

Loved Gemma she is a bit of a "it" girl with the world at her feet or at least London. A blog that's getting some hits, a new job and troublesome men.

Good performance, poor storyline.

Really struggled to finish it.. But I'm not a quitter, so I stuck with it til the end. It was hard work though. I'm still waiting for the laugh out loud parts that other reviews mention.

Decent read but definitely not a comedy

Listed as a laugh out loud comedy? Where? It was a decent read but not what I expected. No comedy content at all.

Another awesome book!

This is my second book by Sophie Ranald and it did not disappoint. I love the way parts are linked to the previous book. That for me, was a really nice touch. Great read/listen, great story and jasmine’s voice was spot on. Now go read/listen to it. Sophie, if you’re reading this, your rock at writing stuff 👊😉

Easy listening chick lit

The entire premise of the book is very believable, set in the relatively vapid world of the British vlogging scene, and Gemma seems like a nice girl who just fell into it all. The book does try and handle a couple of more gritty topics but doesn’t really give them enough time or coverage to really make an impact on the listener. Although it wasn’t amazing or especially deep I enjoyed this book enough to want to publish the other one by this author that Audible has for sale, and I can’t really give it any higher praise than that.
