A short story sequel to the bestselling romcom You Had Me At Hello!
In You Had Me At Hello, the one who got away came back… but what happened next?
Together, apart and then back together again, Rachel and Ben had a rollercoaster ride to get here. But now happily in love and partners in crime once more, it feels like it’s all been worth it.
But when a face from the past re...more
Swoony, romantic Ben proves once again that Rachel is the love of his lif ...more
P.S Can I please have a novella, just like this for Who’s that girl AT LEAST...
BEN AND RACHEL ARE EVERYTHING TO ME. I was torn in some gruesome knots during this and then I was absolute mush reading that ending, the flashback / mention to that very first scene of You had me at Hello. I'm dead!
''Want to know something ridiculous?'
Ben leans in. 'I meant it the first time.'
Honestly I can't breathe at how real Mhairi's characters are, how they mark my heart and ...more
I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed this author's work, she has a genuinely original voice, and her character observations are strikingly honest.
It was a short read with zero smut (sadly) but plenty of banter, wit and warm feels balanced with some angst. It was about an hour's read and even though I'd forgotten most of the detail of the first book, there were enough prompts t ...more
I’d rather have things go wrong with you than right with anyone else
I like the idea of showing what can go after HEA. But, in this case, it was written far from perfect.
I met again the splendid characters (and the wit) from You Had Me At Hello, and I bought the 'crack' between Ben and Rachel. On the other hand, I was bored with all those explanations about what happened in "You Had Me At Hello". I am not sure one could read this sequel without reading the previous book - so, what those repet ...more
This little story was so sweet and pulled me into the life of Rachel and Ben. Now I want to know the back story, so of course I will be reading You Had Me At Hello. I felt invested in making sure all things surrounding them went well.
The whole story was fun and light and left me wanting more!
For readers that want to read this one, make sure you read the first book beforehand. I feel like you're not lost per say, but you need to the whole story o ...more
I was dying to know what was next for Ben and Rachel after I last few lines of YOU HAD ME AT HELLO. If you were in the same boat as me, AFTER HELLO gives you a little of what you want. And the best part is that it’s FREE (as of the time of posting this review).
Flash forward two years later, Ben and Rachel are homeowners. They’re not married and enjoying being together. Rachel really wants to take that next step but does Ben?
There was a ...more
I get the feeling I have read about this couple before? Going to scope that now. ...more
A fun, quick read following Rachel and Ben from You Had Me at Hello. I love when authors give readers a sneak peek into the “after” the HEA and what’s happening in the character’s lives. This could have worked as an epilogue in the original book but it was a freebie so I picked it up.
I love the author’s writing style and am now in the process of reading her backlist :)
This is a couple that I wish we could see over and over again ❤️
Mhairi's books bring a whole heap of ...more
Mhairi makes me laugh, her humor is quite unique. was one of my favorite books with its mix of New Adult back love story and Adult "second chance" feel... and it was nice to have a little peek at what happens after happily ever after and to meet again some favorite characters. It was like taking a coffee with an old friend, pleasant, comforting, and hilarious as it is that friend who always makes jokes :) ...more
I just finished the first book, You Had Me at Hello, yesterday and I was having a total book hangover from from it. Then I realized I'd already had this one so naturally had to jump back in immediately. I'm happy to report that this book begins on the same night the first book ends. That made me especially happy!
All the main characters from the first book are still in the story with one notable exception and that was a happy exception. Not to worry, even this novella has a v ...more
Following on from You Had Me at Hello, which I loved, this short read is lovely - seeing their relationship past the ending of the last book. Really enjoyed delving into their world again.
So far I have enjoyed everything I've read by Mhairi McFarlane. ...more
After some efforts at journalism, she started writing novels. It’s Not Me, It’s You is her third book. She lives in Nottingham, with a man and a cat.
