Teehee!!! This was such a delightfully fun book!! I'd best describe it as a cross between an outrageously HILARIOUS laugh-out-loud romantic comedy, and just a really light-hearted, easy beach read. The hero was this grumpy recluse (with a secret!!) who moved in next door to the heroine and, despite her friends' best efforts to set her up with a bunch of (really funny) blind dates, she kept being drawn back to the moody, grouchy-but-gorgeous guy who seemed determined to make her hate him. It was

I enjoyed this one. A quirky, sweet heroine. An asshole hero who is a a bit of a prick. Right up my street.

Honeysuckle Jones has a problem, and her best friends Nell and Tash are on a mission to help her solve it. She needs a man – a caring, intelligent, funny man. But most importantly, a man who’s good with his hands…

Luckily Honey’s new neighbour – moody, antisocial ex-chef Hal – fails on almost every count. Even though the chemistry between them is electric, he’s obviously wrong for her in e

5 - This is a job for a man, not a machine." Stars!

I am a big fan of Kat French, her books encapsulate everything I want from a perfect summer read. Romance, laughter, a little drama, a great cast of characters, and a relatable hero and heroine. She hit the mark on every one of those requirements with The Piano Man Project as well as a few more I didn’t know I wanted but enjoyed just the same.



Honey was the kind of character that you couldn’t help but like, a little hapless, easy-going to the nth

This was a sweet, sometimes laugh out loud love story. A damsel in distress, and a grouchy knight in tarnished armor is my favorite trope. And this one did the job wonderfully. Though a little too long for my taste, and obviously predictable in places, I loved it nonetheless.

Loved Honeysuckle and Hal together. They were perfect for each other :))

I don’t ever remember being this frustrated while reading a book.
The writing itself was brilliant. The premise, too, was exciting. The hero ruined everything for me.

He is blind, literally and figuratively. It’s not a bloody spoiler cause we learn about it in the first 10% so hold your horses.

Reminds me so much of Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover, but this one's lighter, funnier and (imo) much bearable to read. Our hero is blind and have hurty feelings that, yes, annoyed me to death.

I got everything I wanted from this book. The laughs, the tears, the feels. So much feels, and most of them wasn't even about the main two. Lets's start at the beginning though, 'cause it got me snickering from the first paragrath.
"Don't you think there's something sad about buying yourself a new vibrator for Valentine's Day?" Honey picked up a lurid pink model and eyed it with distaste.
"Why?" Tash laughed. "My last one was the best boyfriend I've ever had. When it gave out I burie

I read "The Piano Man Project" in one sitting. I was instantly hooked by this quirky and fun and novel, which is also a very well-rounded love story. I found the heroine to be fabulously sassy and I loved her character development, not to mention the personas and growth of her two best friends as well. The hero is, of course, gorgeous and moody, with lots of baggage -- but his growth, too, is pleasing. The backstory and hilarity are wonderful, and there's just the right amounts of comedic, roman ...more

Сначала о главном.
Героя мне хотелось не просто прибить, а долго и с пристрастием пытать, а потом похоронить заживо.
Но я понимаю его мотивы. Понимаю, почему он стал таким. Так что в этом плане претензий нет, просто персонаж далек от идеала, что, наверное, не так уж плохо.
И все равно гад.
Которому жутко повезло с героиней. Прочла тут в одном из отзывов что-то типа "девица - тряпка" и разозлилась. Она просто... светлая. С большим сердцем и открытой душой. Попадись парняге кто-то вроде меня - живым б

Oh I just adored this light fluffy read today, it was nice to sit down and not have to deeply think about anything and just enjoy this read. Nice glass of lemonade, sit back, chill out and read.

Everyone has an idea in their head of the kind of person they feel they are wanting to fall in love with. Tall, dark and distinguished.

Blonde with baby blue eyes and a tattoo..... well....some do!

Este libro también me tocó en el sorteo veraniego de Harlequin, y ahora le he dado la oportunidad. En el fondo me ha gustado, pero no lo suficiente, es más bien un libro pasable, entretiene, pero poco más. Intenté no llevar ningún tipo de expectativa, porque en general el libro no tenía muy buena crítica.

En mi opinión, aunque me ha entretenido lo justo, mentiría si dijera que es un buen libro. Quizás sea culpa mía porque no soy fan de éste género, creo que englobaría éste libro más como Chick Li

Kat French has brought us a British rom-com with fun, feeling, wit and little surprises along the way. Emotive and laugh-out-loud funny, The Piano Man Project was a delight to read with a charismatic cast of characters.

The missing O isn't a new phenomenon in romance, but Honey's hey-you-can't-miss-what you've-never-had attitude was completely endearing and set it apart from others. And when her friends decide it's their mission to help rid her of this terrible blight in life, they decide there'

То ли звезды сошлись, то ли книга под настроение попала, но прочла на одном дыхании.

Да, это не шедевр всех времен и народов, но это очень крепкий и годный чиклит. Приятная забавная героиня, интересный герой, совершенно очаровательные второстепенные персонажи. Конечно, поведение Хала в конце вызывало острое желание дать ему по башке, чтоб мозги на место встали - но с другой стороны, если бы человек, который одним махом потерял всю прошлую жизнь, да еще и зрение, вдруг заделался оптимистом и балаг

This review is going to be absolutely jam-packed with exceedingly positive words because I really cannot begin to tell you how much I utterly adored this novel. From the very first page, to the very last, I scoffed The Piano Man Project down so greedily, you'd question whether I was human or animal. It was perfect, the ultimate love story, delicately sexy, agonisingly torturous, but overall, unforgettable. Even now, Honey and Hal are

Book Review - The Piano Man Project by Kat French - ***** my chicklit bone(r) is alive and kicking

After reading and not loving one of my usual female fiction (or chicklit whichever title you want to give it) writers books recently, I was a bit hesitant going into this book. I wondered if i’d passed the mark where chicklit did it for me anymore. Well, i’m pleased to report my chicklit bone(r) is alive and kicking!

Honey has never had an O - and I mean never, not even at her own hand or via a BOB.

Thoroughly enjoyed this hilarious romance!

Loved Hal (even though he was a jerk). Loved Honey. Loved their hallway "conversations".

This book was light and fun. And that was just what I needed right now.
Rebecca ♥ Warner, Kishan, Magnus ♥
I'm not really sure how I feel about this. Honey was great and funny. But although sometimes I understood Hal and thought he was going through a lot and it was romantic that Honey could see through all that, there are so many other times when I just thought he was a jackass.

4.5 stars. The reason I took 0.5 star away was because this book needs some thorough editing for some grammars and missing words mistakes. Other than that this book is a very good read. I thought it was a fun and easy read but at the end I almost cried. I do agree with some readers that it should be a book 2 or an epilogue to let us know how they are doing after the end.

He ignores me for days on end and then every now and then he is so, so incredible that he knocks the breath out of me.” 2 likes
