This romantic comedy is about a woman named Flora Robson, born in Islington who owns a little hairdressing salon. She is twenty-nine years old going on thirty and has a boyfriend named Luke; he’s a solicitor. Luke considers a woman’s vagina a mystery. Even during sex he has no idea what to do with it apart from the obvious, and even then he is so quick that even if Flora wanted to plan a shopping list, there would be no time for it and Luke’s pyjamas wearing doesn't exactly turn her on either.
He says things like ‘fancy a cuddle?’ when what he really means is ‘fancy sex?’ Not to mention his bedside ritual of cutting his toenails. She often questions why he likes her. Why he'd be interested in a ‘simple hairdresser like her.’
Because he is so quick during sex, K-Y Jelly comes in handy (no pun intended) and on one occasion Luke screamed out and said; ‘Jesus, for the love of God, what the hell did you put on my ****? It’s sodding freezing.’ As she fumbles for her glasses and grabs the tube she winces and wonders how on earth she’s going to tell him that she’s Biofreezed his ****?
Her mother wants grandchildren, more importantly, so does she, and she feels that at the rate she’s going, she'll probably run out of time and die a spinster.
Then one day Flora reverses into the gorgeous blue-eyed Tom Rory’s Audi, not aware that he is a multimillionaire. She soon learns that his company is looking at redeveloping the block in which her hairdressing salon is and through his representatives, seeks to buy her out. By the time Flora had reversed into him and they'd gotten introduced, the offers to the business owners on the block had already proceeded.
Flora has no idea that Tom is the multimillionaire behind the redevelopment plan.
Read more about Flora’s journey of discovery, love, hot chocolate and marshmallows, and the man who changes everything.
This book is a light read and it gave me a good laugh. Lynda's witty humour is evident in her writing.
