Brief synopsis: Charley has worked hard to create the perfect life; the job of her dreams, a nice flat and plenty of extra curricular activities. When a broken leg forces her to handover her job to her evil deputy, Charley fills her time helping hopeless singles in the online dating world. Her new position puts her in contact with William and she soon opens up to him in a way she never realised she could. Can she fall in love with a total stranger?
What I thought: This is the first book I’ve read by Lucy Robinson and what a fab book! I loved the twists and turns in the plot – first with John and then later with William. The story did become a little predictable towards the end but being a sucker for a good love story, that was my favourite part!
The book was full of fantastic characters but there were 3 standout characters for me: Charley who went from the hard-faced workaholic to real softie, Granny Helen who influenced the story right through to the end and Sam the sweetie.
I’ll definitely be adding The Greatest Love Story of All Time to my to-read list.
“His eyes – hungry and slightly mad – told me everyone I needed to know. Sex with him was going to be the most outrageous and dirty act I would ever commit.
And with that I lunged. There was no other option. It was that or die of an exploding vagina.”
