She moves into a flat and quickly discovers her attractive neighbour, Luke Doyle works out in front of his window. A window that she has a good view of! Mia and Luke immediately hit it off, but personal issues on either side make it difficult to fully get to know each other.
I loved the start of this book, I was so sure it was going to be amazing. Unfortunately I didn't enjoy the second half, and I felt like the story dragged. Mia became more and more frustrating (and I could barely keep up with all of her jobs/hobbies/skills that got dropped through the novel!) , and I began to feel bad for Luke, for having to put up with her. The plot digressed, with less focus being on the two of them, and more on an unnecessary 'twist'.
Personally, I'd enjoy a story about Stan or even Mia's sister Elle. The side characters had a huge impact and I actually liked them a lot more than Mia.
Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for allowing me to read a copy of this book.

Kathryn always writes great characters, full of wit and banter, but undoubtedly one of the best things about her books is her ability to create chemistry so strong it practically sizzles off the page.
I loved Mia’s quirkiness and Luke was both sweet and really HOT.
I can’t wait for Kathryn’s next book.
Mia’s not great with relationships – her last boyfriend turned out to be a bit of a stalker, so much so that she moved to another city (Manchester) to lick her wounds in private, a bit of a computer nerd but also working on her novel. Her family are concerned, want her to get out and make friends – so far she’s only really connected with pensioner Stan next door (what a great character). But there’s a guy in the flat opposite who gets her heart racing when he works out at his window at 10am every morning – he’s Luke, who owns “The Bar Beneath” below the flat complex. His reputation rather goes before him, and even if he glanced in her direction there’s no way he’d be right for her. But when they meet, there’s an unexpected spark. Although Mia – with her eclectic taste in t-shirts and ever-changing hair colours -is very different from his usual type of high maintenance, immaculately groomed woman, a friendship begins, as he takes her on a sequence of increasingly hair-raising non-dates to show her what Manchester has to offer.
There’s a lot in the book about trust – Luke might become a friend, but he doesn’t have her phone number, and they communicate through notes in their windows (really nicely done…) – and opening up and letting people in, taking a chance, finding support where you don’t expect to find it. The whole supporting cast is so excellent (I was particularly fond of Naomi at the cafe – and Mia’s “no filter” sister)… but I’m now coming close to telling you the whole story, and I really mustn’t.
But Luke proves to be a lot more than a pair of sparkling eyes and a set of rippling muscles – nicely complex and misunderstood, with a strong back story, and quite unexpectedly one of the loveliest leading men the author’s created – and the initial friendship begins to develop into something more. There are hurdles and complications and real obstacles along the way, but the slow-burn romance was everything I hoped for and wanted it to be – wonderful to watch, feeling real and authentic, with a lovely increasing sizzle (and, in time, some heat that I really enjoyed too).
The writing is excellent – both main characters’ viewpoints, that great cast, the trademark sparky dialogue, a little more depth than you might expect and a few surprises, that perfect balance of humour and poignancy. But the romance itself really was exceptional, and both characters grabbed me by the heart, and never let go – the book’s light and it’s fun in so many ways, with the impossibility of any real relationship between the nerd and the cool kid, but it was also a book that surprised me by how deeply it me feel. I read it from cover to cover in one glorious sitting, and loved every single moment – I’ve enjoyed everything the author’s written, but I really think this is her best book yet.
Only criticism, around the 70% mark it felt a bit dragged, then the ending felt a bit rushed, in comparison with the rest of the book
Don’t get me wrong, you could totally see why the characters would end where they did but personally would have loved to read a bit more of the last 2 chapters and a bit before the epilogue
But overall great likeable characters, easy going romance, plenty of laughs, love how the supporting characters call the leads on when they are being too dramatic - loved it
