I first read this book on kindle some time ago. I instantly fell in love with Tasha as she starts a very honest blog about her not so perfect life. Most of us has fallen in love, one time or another with someone unattainable. But unfortunate circumstances suddenly makes her dream come true. What starts out as Tasha helping Jamie see through his fog of grief becomes tentative steps to a real and lasting love. It's real. It's messy. Sometimes painful but that is how life is. The author did not ma ...more

Really struggled to put this book down! Partly I think because of the way it isn't written in chapters but blog entries - and it just flows and you can't see the harm of just reading a little bit more ...
I loved the being in Tasha's head and seeing it all throught her eyes. Loved Jamie, and found all he had to go through horrendous. Maybe at times it may have been nice to see inside his head too. But this was the way the suthor chose to tell the tale and I enjoyed both the story and the way in w

246p Tasha's a chatty, flirty 30-something who loves music, food, sex, clothes (not necessarily in that order) and her boss. This is not a romantic comedy, though: she's in love with the wrong man at the wrong time, leading her into a minefield of moral dilemmas and social taboos. You may laugh with her at times, but you may also cry with and for her as she tries to make the best of what life throws her way.

I have been passionate about reading and writing since early childhood. Prize-winning stories in primary school led to hours writing fanfic (long before the phrase was invented) as a teenager, and I wrote my first novel in my twenties. Life got in the way of my dream of becoming a best-selling author, but writing and reading have remained life-long pleasure pastimes.
