Monthly Mini Review

white couple embrace against a London city backgroundAct Like It by Lucy Parker – A- I admit I was far too late to the party on this book. However, just because I was late doesn’t mean I can’t celebrate.

I’ve read a review recently which indicated that some of the theatre stuff depicted in the book isn’t accurate but as I have no idea how theatre works it wasn’t at all a barrier for me. I am a big fan of witty banter and I loved what I got in Pretty Face. And I found more of the same here (even though Act Like It was written first). Grumpy heroes are also made of win for me and the fake relationship trope is a modern kind of marriage of convenience and I am so here for it.

I enjoyed the humour of the book, not just evident in the dialogue. Lucy Parker’s sense of humour and mine obviously mesh well. (Clearly we are meant to be BFFs. Sadly she lives in New Zealand and we have only “met” on Twitter.)

His house was far too big for one person. It took so long to get to his bedroom that he was lucky he was sexy or the mood might have waned.
