'Beautifully written, brilliant, and perfectly salty, Love You, Mean It is a total dream of a rom-com' LANA HARPER

'Delightfully tropey. . . Gagnon expertly combines humour and tenderness . . . This is a sweet confection' PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
From duelling delis to fake dating . . .

Ellie Greco
loves her hometown and family-run deli, but she'd always thought she was meant for more exciting things than stocking the right tinned fish. Until a gourmet food department store moving in nearby threatens the very existence of Greco's Deli.

She pleads her case to Theo Taylor, scion of the property management firm that's about to put her out of business, but their meeting goes from bad (he's infuriating) to worse (no one expects the ceiling to fall on him).

With Theo out cold, Ellie panics, claims to be his fiancée . . . and almost passes out herself when amnesia means Theo actually believes her. The effects of the head injury soon wear off, yet Theo proposes that their "engagement" stick around. If they manage to convince enough people, they might succeed in ending the department store deal.

But when Theo's ex-fiancée reappears on the scene, Ellie is forced to decide between a blossoming friendship, her family legacy, and the burgeoning romance she frankly never asked for.

I absolutely loved this book! I was hooked right away from the writing style. I never had a book in quite a while just pull me in so quickly of be so relatable. I was laughing from the first page. I have definitely dealt with customers like that. It was so funny, relatable, and cute. I cannot wait to share more thoughts on it.

I usually read thrillers by Jilly Gagnon so I was very intrigued to read her romance book and I absolutely loved it overall and found it easy to read coupled with my favourite enemies-to-lovers trope.

A fake dating romance. Ellie needs Theo to help her, even though it is his family that is trying to put her family deli out of business. A great read.
