  • A fun read

    I would like to thank Harper Collins UK and NetGalley for allowing me to read an ARC of this book. This book had me laughing out loud and cheering Abby/Abigail on. It is a sweet romance that leaves you feeling happy and content. The characters are wonderful and quirky with some you will love to hate. If you hate Reality TV than this is a must read for you. Those that like Reality TV may be a bit put out. A woman is sent undercover on to a tv show where one man will pick a potential bride. It’s the last place in the world she wants to be but what ensues is a mixture of humour, friendship and love with a dash of mean girl thrown in. A perfect beach read or for whenever you want to read something fun.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Reality TV But I Actually Like It!

    Abby is a writer - is writing recaps of trashy reality TV her dream job? No, but it pays the bills. And it’s just her luck when the producers of The Stag see her recap that is boosting ratings for the show and ask her to come along - not just as a behind the scenes writer, but as a contestant. She’ll be playing the game, and writing the recaps all from sunny Sydney. And with a hot Australian producer in her sights, will the “Stag” even have a chance? I love the drama that these books are full of - when I watch the Bachelor in snippets (usually because a family member puts in on) I feel my brain cells jumping ship. Watching a horde of women put each other down in order to achieve romantic success and/or fame is a bit much for me. But seeing the behind the scenes? I’m a sucker for it. Seeing how the producers spin a story through editing and guidance is so fascinating, and I’m much more interested in seeing both the result and the actuality of the situation - something you get lots of in this book! What I liked most about this book was that it put female friendships at the forefront. Yes we’ve got villains to cheer against here too, but Abby’s perspective brings us lots of camaraderie amongst the women in the house. They stick up for each other, and lift each other up for the most part, and it was nice to see how that friendship evolved as the stakes got higher. Abby’s recaps were a great way to move along the story without us needing to experience everything with Abby firsthand. The snarky style of writing was a lot of fun to read. And the sweet little romance was great too! It really wasn’t the focus of the story, so keep that in mind. Nothing steamy in this book, only a bit of kissing! Thanks NetGalley and Harper Collins UK for the early copy in exchange for an honest review!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Fun rom-com

    This was a fun rom-com. I don’t actually enjoy watching reality shows like the one featured in this book, so I appreciated that it talked about all the machinations that go on behind the scenes, and that reality shows are not reality. The main character is very likeable as are most of the other characters. I wondered how accurate it was that there only ever seemed to be four crew members filming the show. Maybe this was simplified for clarity’s sake? Also, I found some of the transitions between the Anastasia blog posts and the rest of the story a bit confusing at times, although that could partly be because I read the unfinished version. Hopefully that will be fixed later. Overall, although I wasn’t completely invested in the romance of the story, I still had fun reading this book. Thank you to NetGalley and HarperCollins UK for providing me access to this eARC for my honest opinion!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Not for Me

    This is a DNF for me. The main character is far too manic for my tastes and I am not connecting with the book.

  • Good read

    I liked this story! I'm surprised it has not the best reviews. This is a cute, quick and easy summer romance read. Abigail is a "serious writer", or, she's trying to be. In the meantime, she writes scandalous reviews about the reality show, The Stag, basically The Bachelor under a pen name. That is until, plot twist, the producers think it would be brilliant if Abigail went on the show as a contestant to get the inside scoop for her write ups! Along the way, Abby meets the crew, including the very cute Jack, the other contestants who she befriends, and the awful man they chose to star the show, Daniel. I enjoyed this story. It was a bit slow to start, and Abby was a bit too prudish and insecure. But as the story goes on and Abby comes to know and act as her true self, I really enjoyed reading about her! She did have to be put in her place by those closest to her, but it worked. The writing did feel new. I felt like the story was long and there was a lot to it, but I didn't really know Abby on a deeper level. I just think that the story is that type of book, more on the surface. I didn't find the amount of characters confusing but I either really loved them or really hated them. I think some would find the ending odd and anticlimactic but I liked it! It is a slow burn on the romance, but worth it. I loved the side characters, I thought they were well developed and funny! This is a good read.

    Thanks for your feedback!
