A Passionate Love Affair with a Total Stranger by Lucy Robinson

Synopsis: A Passionate Love Affair with a Total Stranger by Lucy Robinson, author of The Greatest Love Story of All Time, is a hilariously funny and gorgeously romantic story about falling in love when you least expect it. Charley Lambert has put considerable effort into achieving a perfect life. She has The Job. The Wardrobe. And The Flat. Her womanising, junk food-loving housemate Sam lowers the tone a bit but that aside, things are peachy. Then she breaks her leg in three places, watches her unrequited love propose to someone else and - worst of all - is forced to hand over her job to her nasty deputy while she recovers. Workaholic Charley fears that she will soon go mad. Desperate for something to do, she discovers her talent for helping the lovelorn online. And then William arrives in her inbox. Within hours of his first email, her world starts to change. Helpless, she watches herself fall in love with this man and begins to realise that she's not who she thought she was. But will she be brave enough to turn her back on her old life - all for a total stranger? 

               Laugh out loud and fall in love with Lucy Robinson's A Passionate Love Affair with a Total Stranger Praise for Lucy Robinson: 'Romantic and laugh-out-loud hilarious' Cosmopolitan 'Prepare for public-transport belly laughs' Glamour Lucy Robinson is the author of The Greatest Love Story of All Time. Prior to writing Lucy earned her crust in West End theatre production and then factual television, working on documentaries for the BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Channel Five.

Lucy was brought up in Gloucestershire and now lives with her boyfriend in South London. She is writing her next novel while working on various television projects and plotting a return to academia.

My thoughts: L-O-V-E I-T! Every page of it made me fell in love more and more with Sam! I just want one for me too! Charley, you lucky bastard! J

                This book was extremely charming and funny! The writing is very catching and well-written; it has great characters that make you cheer up for them. When it got to the high point of the book I literally ran around the house screaming madly. :D

                When she starts hooking up with her “boss” John – SPOILER – I got extremely angry! I mean, for Goddess’s sake, girl, you have Sam right next to you! What is wrong with you?! However, since John is such a Don Juan, every time that he said something cute or romantic or both, it totally blew me and Charley away! LOL

                The ending was thrilling to me, seriously. Not the kind of ending that makes you cry, but rather rejoice on the cuteness and beauty of it. The romance is balanced with the laughter, making this book a delightful and highly recommended reading. The only thing that lacked for me was the fact that Sam and Charley didn’t have a night together – ;) – , but that can be totally forgiven given the fact that the book was perfect.
