I’m taking my turn on the blog tour today, unfortunately not with the review I had hoped for this book, but a spotlight post instead. My thanks to Rachel Gilbey of Rachel’s Random Resources for offering me a place on the tour and to the publisher and author for my digital copy of the book.
Tilly’s got her invite, now this single mum needs a plus one.
But she’s far too busy parenting her little girl, stopping her mum from over injecting her face with filler, and playing happy families with her pompous coffee-fuelled ex. Oh yeah, and there’s the new guy at work who is gunning for her job. So Tilly really doesn’t have time for any of the grief that relationships can bring. She just wants the fun, not the red flags. And it just so happens that a nice-looking man has recently caught her eye. He’ll do… for now… just perfect.
Except he’s a little elusive. After a wild hen do including a very ropey boat trip, a gobby gate crasher and a dodgy male stripper, a series of dating disasters leaves Tilly feeling disheartened. When that familiar gorgeous face pops up on the dating website, she thinks all of her Christmases have come at once. Could he be the plus one?
Tilly’s too nice and she really needs to set some boundaries if she wants to be happy. Is there such a thing as the perfect plus one? Will her mother’s obsession with tweakments ever stop? Can Tilly compete with the sexy but infuriating new guy at work?
This books sounds like a lot of fun, don’t you think? As well as being intrigued by poor Tilly’s life juggling dilemmas – which sound all too familiar to anyone who has ever been a single parent – I was particularly looking forward to meeting Tilly’s mum who sounds like a wild character.
Unfortunately, due to some personal and health issues, I have not been able to complete reading the book in time to include my review for the blog tour today. However, I can tell you that I have started the book and so far is is proving too be the entertaining read I was hoping it would be and I am really looking forward to finishing it and bringing you my review next week.
In the meantime, you can buy Not The Plus One here in paperback and ebook formats. And other bloggers are sharing their reviews of the book as part of the tour as detailed below:
