Two broken hearts. One fake dating agreement. What could go wrong?

Lucie thought she had it all—a loving fiancé, a nice apartment, and a job she was great at. But that all changed the day she walked in on her perfect fiancé screwing his personal trainer on her newly purchased dream sofa. Three months later, she’s bunking with her best friend and scrambling to make sense of

I really enjoyed it, but…

This review contains some spoilers, please proceed with caution.

4 Stars is good, so I really did enjoy this story, but sitting here writing this review, I’m doing the dreaded overthinking it. Bear with me as I try to explain what’s going through my head. (I’ve hidden the most spoilery bits.)

Stand-In Saturday is a light and fluffy read. The cover is cute and perky, the storyline is filled with humour, and the romance, while a slow burn, is still well-paced. The problem is

Holy doughnuts! 🍩 This beautiful book is definitely one of those stories that you just don't ever want to stop. Keep the swoons coming. I have officially added Kirsty mother-freaking Moseley on my great list of favorite romance-writing authors! I loved the shit out of Man Crush Monday, and I feel the same (if not more) for this one.

Someone needs to call 999 because I just died. I think my heart actually stopped when reading this. Is it possible to give something for than 5 stars?
I don't even know where to begin. Perfection is impossible to describe with words other than Eek, Ahh and swoon.
I knew going into this that I would adore Theo... But boy was that the understatement of the millennium. He is my dream guy. Funny, charismatic and cutely nerdy. D

OH. MY. GOODNESS. This is one story that you honestly must not miss!! Stand-In Saturday is EPIC!! PHENOMENAL!! And I seldom use those words in my reviews! I haven’t laughed out loud so much whilst reading a rom-com in years and whilst the humour in this story is one of the things I adore about this book, there is one other that definitely needs a mention… and that is Theo Stone.

Let’s chat about my new hubby for a moment 😉 Theo is AH-MAZ-ING!! This guy has it all! He’s good looking, fun, friendl

Holy. Crow. On. A. Stick. Where do I signup for my own personal Theo?? Swoon. Epic swoon.

My advice to start with about Stand-In Saturday, run, do not walk, RUN to one-click this book NOW!! Best book I have read of 2020. Is it possible to give a book ten stars? No, more? Let me give it as many as I can.

I am a first-time reader of Kirsty Mosley and I am hooked like no other. I will be running like the wind to read ALL of her

Stand In Saturday is the second standalone book in Kirsty Moseley’s Love For Days Series. If you've previously read Kirsty’s Man Crush Monday you will have already met Theo and this is his book.

Any of my reading friends that know me know that Ashton from Kirsty’s NLTL is my absolute favourite book boyfriend ever, well Theo is that amazing he gives Ashton a run for his money and that is huge!

Lucie is a brilliant character and I loved how she met Theo! We see more characters from Man Crush Monda

Kirsty Moseley knocks it out the park with this 5-star read. A wildly funny, laugh out loud, beautiful story. Theo is pure nerdy, hot perfection, and everyone needs a Lucie to be their best friend. You really root for these two. Their enchanting, goofy love story is such a fun ride, my cheeks ached from smiling so hard. This series is a must for everyone who likes to laugh while falling head over heels in love with the characters.

Well. Kirsty’s gone and done it again! Another 5 star read for me, with all the feels and lots of laugh out loud moments (literally). This was such a fun read, with wonderful characters, some of who, if you’ve read book 1 in the Love for Days series, Man Crush Monday, you will already know. Fake dating is one of my favourite tropes, and Theo and Lucie fake it in the best possible way. No lies or deceit, they’re both upfront with themselves and they don’t particularly lie about what they are to e ...more

“I didn’t know what love was until I met you.”

As soon as I finished reading Man Crush Monday, I was excited about Theo's book. I felt a little sorry for him when his brother got his happy ending, and I wanted the same for Theo. And Kirsty Moseley didn’t disappoint! This book is exactly what a perfect rom-com should be- it's filled with lought-out-loud moments and swoon-worthy scenes. It's a heartwarming story about two people with broken hearts, who find a real happiness in each other's arms

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

OMG! I loved this story!! It was just what I needed in these stressful times. A story that had me smiling from the start till the end! It was so funny and entertaining!

The writer Kirsty Moseley started this series (Love for days) with the book ‘Man Crush Monday’ where we met Jared and Amy and where we also met Jared’s brother Theo (the main character in this story). I enjoyed ‘Man Crush Monday’ very much. Jar

This didn't work for me.
The Hero and his brother are twins and he thinks he's in love with his brother's fiancé.
I'm not keen on this troupe but I thought I'd try it.
The first couple of chapters the Hero is thinking how much he fancies his brother's girl, while he with her watching TV.
Then later the drama with the heroine's ex was OTT.

I feel weird bow that I have to write review on this book because I honestly don't know what to write.
I had big expectations about this book. Loved the premise, but I feel like something's missing here. I loved Lucie and Theo, they are perfect couple, but the entire book focused on the relationship between them. We cannot see what's happening around them. First of all, Theo brings Lucie to his brother's wedding and nobody notices it's weird. They all talk to her like they have known them for ag

I've been giddy with excitement when Kirsty Moseley first announced that Love for Days will be a series of stand alones. I loved that Theo will get to tell his own story. And my current slump wouldn't stop me from devouring this.

I'm not really fond of insta-love stories. It's mostly a hit or miss for me. But I don't think I have read any of Kirsty's book that missed. It was fun and light. There may have been some lines that I didn't really get, primarily because of culture differences, but it d

Having read Man-Crush Monday, I sort of knew what I was expecting when I started this book. I mean, I already loved the characters from the first book. What I didn't expect was to adore Theo even more. As for Lucie - total babe who I want to be my best friend.
The fast paced story kept me reading until I was upset it was over.
I laughed so much at certain parts, I scared the cats who were sleeping on my lap. And it's not very often I laugh out loud whilst reading, but the banter in this book is b

I absolutely adored this book. My face was aching because I smiled and laughed so much, plus I shed some very happy tears too. This is a beautifully written, funny, sexy, addictive book. I just adore the teetering on the edge of letting their feelings be known, moments. The anxiety is heavenly.

Lucie and Theo are both so right for each other it’s silly! Both have a need for a date to help them get over lost love. The spark and personalities of these two just make this book so much more en

Moseley does it again. Yet another fantastic story. I think I may be a little bit in love with Theo and Lucie (but mainly Theo), multiple times I thought the situations they were in could have been me. I laughed so much, I cried and my husband finally thought I'd gone mad. Absolutely amazing, now to read it again until the next one! ...more

Fanning myself, seriously swooning over here. I loved this book, I kind of knew I would as I already loved Theo from Man Crush Monday. Kirsty has done it again bringing these fabulous characters to life with her wonderfully thoughtful, funny and swoon worthy words. She can make you laugh with tears one minute while chewing your nails the next, she truly is a brilliant author.

The sparks that fly between Theo and Lucie are scorching

If there was a book written about Theo and Lucie deciding what to have for dinner, I'd rush to buy it. That is how entertaining the characters are in Kirsty Mosely's, Stand-In Saturday. I could literally read about them doing anything and it wouldn't be boring. They are so much fun and so well-developed! If they were real people, I'd probably be stalking them.

In addition, Stand-In Saturday shows, yet again, that Kirsty Mosely is a phenomenal story-teller who just keeps getting better and better.

StandIn Saturday... it is the best way to start Your Monday like this one! I absolutely adore this story! Mrs. Moseley made me laugh pretty hard, but do not be fooled!!!

StandIn Staurday might be a pretty funny journey, but Mrs. Moseley knew exactly how to turn my world up side down with perfectly hidden emotional rollercoaster... and because of that Lucie and Theo are more and more delicious !!

I loved how their love story flow by thru the paiges.... They were addictive, sweet with the right do

Another smash for Kirsty Moseley.

I assumed I wouldn't love this book as much as the first one... you know what they say about assumptions? I'm now officially an arse!
There was something deeply relatable about Theo and Lucie. I adored her and after Amy in MCM, I didn't know how the heroine could be topped, but I fell in love with Lucie instantly and could have happily been her friend.
Theo, as expected, was described so well I felt my cooch dance every time he was mentioned topless!

I thought I knew what I was expecting when I started this book with meeting Theo in MCM but boy was I wrong! I laughed out loud so many times. Theo is funny and witty, Lucie is his perfect match in every way. I loved this story from the start all the way to the end. I’m a little sad it’s over. It deserves more than 5 🌟

A perfect, light-hearted and humorous read!

I adored Theo's attitude and perspective on life and Lucie is his most-perfect counterpart. He brings out the fun and youthful side in her and she helps him to focus and be a better version of himself.

Brought together under the pretense of helping each other out during some tough times in a sense of comradery things start to shift between them very quickly leading to some truly beautiful (and some downright terrifyingly embarrassing!!) moments.

I am a traditionally published and Indie author that hails from sunny England (I lie, it's not really that sunny here!) I'm a hopeless romantic, so of course my main writing focus is romance.
