'Reader, I swooned! Beach Read is the hottest book of the summer – the pages simply sizzle! My heart ached for January, and Gus is to die for – a steamy, smart and perceptive love story. I was engrossed!' Josie Silver, author of bestselling One Day in December
He doesn't believe in happy endings.
She's lost her faith that they exist.
But could they find one together?
January is a hopeless romantic who likes narrating her life as if she's the heroine in a blockbuster movie.
Augustus is a serious literary type who thinks true love is a fairy-tale.
January and Augustus are not going to get on.
But they actually have more in common than you'd think:
They're both broke.
They've got crippling writer's block.
They need to write bestsellers before the end of the summer.
The result? A bet to see who can get their book published first.
The catch? They have to swap genres.
The risk? In telling each other's stories, their worlds might be changed entirely...
Set over one sizzling summer, Beach Read is a witty, feel-good love story for fans of The Flat Share and Our Stop.
