Is this all there is?

I hadn’t had so much as a sniff of a shag for over a year. I scraped the last dregs of Caramel Chew ice cream out of the bottom of the tub with my finger and licked it. It left a sticky smear on my phone’s screen when I typed into Google, “How to find love, sex and happiness”.

Charlotte has always been a good girl.

She sorts her paper from her plastic. She eats her greens (even Spirulina, whatever that is). Boozy brunches with her best friend on the third Sunday of every month are about as bad as she gets.

But being good is getting boring…

Charlotte’s not just stuck in a rut – she’s buried in it up to her chin. The only company that she has in bed is the back catalogue of Netflix and falling in love feels like the stuff in fairy tales. So when she stumbles across a popular podcast, Sorry Not Sorry, which challenges women to embrace their inner bad girl, she jumps at the chance to shake things up.

Old Charlotte would never ask for a stranger’s number, go on a blind date or buy lacy lingerie… But new Charlotte is waving goodbye to her comfort zone (with a side order of margaritas). And it turns out that good things happen to bad girls, as Charlotte finally finds Mr Right – or so she thinks… is falling in love too tough a challenge even for Charlotte?


This is a chilled and easy read – fun beach holiday read, like a chick flick in a book. Charlotte’s character had me cringing for her but also feeling her raw emotion at times too. I could always sense a twist coming but also didn’t quote expect it either. You have got to read this!

Have you read it? What did you think?

Any other good book recommendations?
