Perma-single Amy Clarke prides herself on three things: her pink hair, her Converse collection, and her ability to drink copious amounts of margarita without puking. She isn’t looking for love. She’s perfectly content with her simultaneous love affairs with Netflix and both Ben and Jerry. The trouble is, sometimes, love finds you.

Five months ago, he climbed aboard her tra

4.5 out of 5 stars!

🔹 Incredibly laugh-worthy
🔹 Emotionally packed
🔹 Tear-jerker (I did NOT want to cry, but I did.)
🔹 Clusterfuckery of Inner Conflicts! (There are points I wanted to smack the heroine in the head, but I believe her conflicted self is doing enough justice on that.)
🔹 Swoon Swoon Swoon 🥺 (I am sucker for intelligence too.)

Man Crush Monday is a very captivating read, absolutely cracked me up, and with emotional depth (I sobbed like a baby). I recommend to y'all RomCom lovers!

Turning into your Man Crush Every Day…

Sometimes a book comes into your life where you are loving it … but get to a stage where you are dreading turning the page. Man Crush Monday was absolutely brilliant and I loved it all but I could see heartache approaching. I guessed the bombshell fairly early on and I was devastated that this perfect couple may have to face a crossroad. In my usual way of dealing with romance book conflict, I delayed it. It was coming, and … I made a cup of coffee … put a l

You know that feeling when after reading some emotional & heartbreaking book you feel drained...then you choose to read something sweet & cute ( I mean look at this cover) ...but still that feeling is there from that previous just reading and waiting for other shoe to drop...that was how I felt reading this..and then I was lulled into it. Because everything was fine & dandy until well over half of book so around 60% ...shit hit the fan... Boom!

I cannot begin to describe just how much I eagerly anticipated this book. Kirsty Moseley is my unicorn author and she’s not released a book for quite some time, the wait was so painful but so so worth it.

This is the first rom-com by this author and she threw my expectations out of the park, around the world and back again! It was amazing, so funny, so many emotions I was tearing up one minute and giggling the next. My children were giving me funny looks at my laugh out loud reactions.

Really great and romantic. I'm docking a star because the first half of the book was too good to be true and boring. It made me wonder what the whole point of the book was about if they just ended up together so easily. Loved the nice twist and the justifications the characters made to decide their true feelings. ...more

Wow, what a great book! Light-hearted read, genuinely likeable characters, fun and humorous storyline. Left me with a good feeling and a smile on my face. I'll definitely be seeking out more books by Kirsty Moseley.

If you haven't yet read this author, give her a try. She writes mature YA, New Adult, and contemporary romance however, she seasons her stories with action, humor, paranormal and other elements, so there's something to satisfy a wide variety of readers. This was my first taste of Kirs

Loved Man Crush Monday! Jared and Amy are so cute and funny. They are total opposites, he is an OCD neat freak and she is a messy leave it where it falls girl. I love the dialogue and her no filter had me laughing out loud. The plot twists left me eager for more and I couldn’t stop reading, even when I should be sleeping. Another good one from Kirsty.

„Up until five months ago, I was a normal Monday hater, just like everyone else, but then something happened. He happened.”

Adorably sweet, incredibly funny and totally astounding! Man Crush Monday is such an original and captivating story that’s completely unputdownable. I devoured this book. Kirsty Moseley has created remarkable and wonderful storyline, filled with wit and cuteness, but it also has an emotional depth that left me almost in tears.

Amy is a quirky, pink haired, Converse wearing woman who's been secretly lusting after the man who rides her train. But it's all very low key until the day they run into each other. Literally. Jared is quite Amy's opposite, but they mesh in surprisingly perfect ways. And it's all very funny, like seriously funny, and witty, then bam, the last part takes quite a turn to the emotional, and suddenly I was wondering what happened to my fun couple. But have no fear, because Man Crush Monday is ye

I received an ARC of this book and this is my voluntarily, honest review of it.

From the first time that I read the blurb of ‘Man crush Monday’, I was immediately intrigued by it and couldn’t wait to read it. So when I won an ARC of it, I was very excited about that!!! But I was also a bit anxious because my expectations for this story were very high and I knew it but to my delight this story was everything I hoped for and more!

This story brought a smile on my face from the first page that I read

Man Crush Monday. #MCM. Amy Clarke has pink hair, a Converse collection, and has Tequila Thursday’s with her friend Heather. To say Monday and Thursday are Amy’s favorite days of the week is an understatement. Thursday’s for obvious reasons (Tequila/Margaritas) and Mondays because of a tall, dark, and handsome somebody that gets on the train she works at every two weeks.

Amy has been eyeing mr. triple threat for about 5 months and after a specific event she has decided that she is in absolute lo

Well Kirsty Moseley hasn’t had a new release for 3 years, but this little gem was definitely worth the wait. She’s back with a bang!

This book is different from her others books in that it is a rom-com, but it shows she’s versatile and can write anything. I loved every minute of this!

This story follows Amy. A normal girl, that I’m sure most of us can relate to. She has her own insecurities, but she’s quirky and cool, and I liked her a lot.

She works as a ticket collector on the trains. Pretty du

An opposites attract, seemingly unlikely romance that’s a fun read with some unexpected drama. I felt the love and the angst. A great read!

Amy is a quirky, unfiltered, converse wearing, pink haired fun girl. You are going to love her! She’s the lady on the train that rides her old bike to work everyday and punches your ticket to ride. She’s just living life and lusting after her man crush. He makes Monday’s better every other week when he rides on her train. She’s been loving him from afar for m

I've been a fan of Kirsty's work for a long time now, she has a way of sucking me into the world that she creates like no other...but, its been a LONG 3 year wait since her last release and I'll admit, I went in with a slight vein of trepidation! I wasnt sure what to expect, would she still grab me the way she always did before? would it be as good? I didnt know, but I sure as hell couldn't wait to find out!!
The answer, in short....IT WAS BETTER!!! Better than my wildest possible dreams! I foun

I already know that Man Crush Monday will be one of my top reads of 2020, of all time actually. Kirsty Moseley is a favourite author of mine because she always writes outstanding stories and although there has been a bit of a gap since her last release until this one, I can tell you that it has been totally worth the wait.

Amy Clarke is amazing and I would love her to be in my close circle of friends. She is fun, quirky, caring, kind and has this fabulous personality which ensures that people wa

This is a pretty damn good book. It was a bit too sugary sweet at the beginning but then bam! A major plot twist comes and everything changes.

Amy and Jared were amazing as a couple and individuals. Amy was quirky, fun, honest, and has no verbal filter! Jared was adorable, smart and sexy. And I loved Amy's nanna to pieces!! She was too fun to be around.

This story was different, a truly one of a kind and definitely worth the read!!

Man Crush Monday is hands down the best contemporary romance with rom-com vibes, I've recently read. Kirsty Moseley created beautiful story about how fate can be twisted and how love can play tricks with us or that we can't take every day for granted.
Kirsty Moseley has amazing style of writing and has that magical spark which pulls you in so deep that there is no way you will be able to walk away once you start to read this book. It will hit that right spot in your heart.

Second book that I could finish this month and half of not wanting to read absolutely nothing! I completely loved this book, its energy, the plot, the characters and the plot twist! Even if I was expecting it. The characters were lovely and the chemistry was insane.

Anyways, I really liked it<3

Have you ever ridden a roller coaster that spikes your adrenaline up and down so much that you can't tell if you're screaming or giggling, you just know you are having a great time? That's how I felt reading "Man Crush Monday" and I loved every crazy minute of it.  Amy Clarke may now be my favorite heroine of all time. A pink-haired, British cross between Emma Stone, Anna Kendrick and a teacup poodle, she is just adorably weird and hilariously quirky. And her "man-crush" is definitely book-boyfr ...more

It has been three years when one of my favorite authors, Kirsty Moseley, released a book. Man Crush Monday wasn’t really the book we were initially promised, but man, did it deliver more than that! This was definitely worth all those wait, reminding me what a good story teller, Kirsty Moseley is.

Man Crush Monday is a romantic comedy that will tug at your heartstrings. The story is original (at least for me) that even if I know how things will end up, it still excites me know how things pan out.

Amy and Jarod’s story is a beautifully written tale which is emotional, humorous, with witty banter, and an unexpected surprise which all had me totally captivated throughout this addictive and entertainingly brilliant rom-com masterpiece. I can never get enough of this gifted authors’ work, and I highly recommend for all readers.

I want to take a moment and thank the author for this ebook. I have a deep love for romcom reads and literally squealed with delight when I won this in a Goodreads giveaway. You should've seen the side eye from my husband. Though I haven't read Moseley's work before, I was pretty sure (based on the cover and synopsis) this would be the palette cleansing, sexy laugh I needed to clear some of the massive ARC reads I've been pulling these past two months. Man was I right.

I think Man Crush Monday has officially become my favourite Kirsty Moseley book.

Amy Clarke, what can I say? I loved everything about her. It's not always easy to love the heroine, but Amy doesn't give you a choice. She's absolutely ace, I'd love to have her as one of my tribe!

MCM is well written, something we can count on from this author, but this goes the extra mile making me snort laugh on multiple occasions (as a side note, that's not good when you have hot tea in your mouth). I thoroughly

Such a cute and easy read! I loved how it was kind of love at first sight.

Amy is quirky and funny and I love that. Amy and Jared were honestly so cute together. This book had me laughing and swooning.

This was my first book I've read from this author and now I need to read more as this book was amazing!
