  • Loved it!💕

    😍Cute story of transformed lives: heady, romantic vibes😊 I loved this quirky romance! I can't think of a single element I did not enjoy; the pages just sped by. It's told alternating from the female lead to the male lead's perspective (which I think worked really well with this story). I was totally with Mia as she hesitantly dips her toe into socializing in Manchester, her new home. Throughout the story, Mia transforms from an anxious loner with major trust issues as opens up to the locals and finds new friends as well as Luke, the ripped guy she watches from her window as he goes through his daily exercise routine. She's a bit of a conundrum, though. She dresses for her own comfort, eschews makeup, yet she is constantly comparing herself to other women's looks and finds herself lacking. Which makes her a hard sell when sought-after Luke tries to convince her that it's Mia, not the legions of flirty women that hit on him at his bar, he wants. Luke also transforms as he woos Mia out of her shell. He's got secrets and a history of commitment-free hookups that make Mia wary of his advances. But I loved his earnest efforts to get to know her and prove he deserves her trust. Their slow-build relationship is sweet and romantic but with a punch of passion. The miscommunication and snags they face provide that bit of angst that makes the good times that much better. And the secondary characters, such as Mia's neighbor Stan, her sister Elle and Luke's friend/employee Sandy, provide helpings of humor. I will definitely be looking for more works by Kathryn Freeman. Thanks to Harper Collins UK/One More Chapter and NetGalley for providing a complimentary advance copy of the book; this is my voluntary and honest review.

  • Low angst, not much external plot

    Mia doesn't trust her judgment when it comes to men. She's had too many bad experiences. Luke doesn't believe he's made for love. Plenty of women seek him out for casual affairs, and that's good enough for him. When they meet, the attraction between them is undeniable. But can Mia get over her insecurities, given Luke's history as a player? And can Luke believe that he's worthy of the love of a woman who wants him for more than his body? This is a slow-build, low-angst contemporary romance. If you like character-driven stories without much external plot, this book might be for you. Thanks, NetGalley, for the ARC I received.

  • A Love Journey

    2.5/5 stars! After a bad breakup, the heroine moves to a new flat with a view to the flat across from her. After a few months of eye candy, she finally meets the hero. It takes neighbors, family, friends, and messages stuck on the window for the hero and heroine to change their relationship from friends to more. It's a nice story with a good premise. I liked the heroine more than the hero and wanted more details about her. I also felt that this is more the hero's journey towards becoming a better person and it didn't balance with the heroine's own evolution. I enjoyed the majority of the secondary characters, especially the heroine's family. Overall this is a nice romance book. **Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for the review copy.**

  • 3.5 Stars

    I am a fan of Kathryn Freeman's rom-coms and this is another novel to add to my list. Mr. Right Across The Street is a sweet meet-cute of a book where the characters fall in like, then love through messages posted in their opposite flats' windows. I loved that the main female character, Mia, is a nontraditional lead: she has colorful hair, wears nerdy t-shirts and track bottoms to the local bar, and believes that people should accept her for who she is. I also loved that there was a friendship element to the story, which added to the chemistry between Mia and her love interest, Luke. I wasn't a fan of the epilogue and the ending was somewhat predicable (particularly the epilogue), but overall I recommend this sweet rom-com. 3.5 stars rounded up / Rated: R Advanced galley copy provided courtesy of the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

  • Neither good nor bad

    I want to express my gratitude to Netgalley and HarperCollins UK, One More Chapter for giving me the chance to read this book in exchange for an honest review. I felt quite interested in this title when I read the synopsis and I believed that this could be an attractive read. In this book, we meet a young woman called Mia that is living in a new place in order to forget her ex-boyfriend. In this situation, she meets Luke, a hot bartender, that he feels attracted to since the first look and wants to spend all his free time with her. The premise of the book is quite simple, but it could work better than it. Maybe, this lack of interest that I felt is the fault of Mia, the main character. She is a nerd girl, for this reason she thinks that Luke can't be falling in love with her, this situation extends the plot too many to me. On the other hand, Luke is a really interesting main character. Yes, he is a hot boy and the reader can think that he is only this, yet he has a lot of background that the reader finds page by page that made his story indeed great. If I have to talk about the writing, I can say that Kathryn Freeman has a good style, it’s not heavy nor quite fluid, however me as a reader had a good rhythm of reading. I want to say that to me the chapters were a little bit longer, perhaps because I like short chapters. To sum up, it is a tantalising read if you want something easy to rest from books of other genres.

    Thanks for your feedback!
