(((READ EPUB))) ⇧ A Passionate Love Affair with a Total Stranger ☞ Charley Lambert Has A Perfect Life She Has The Job The Wardrobe And The Flat Then She Breaks Her Leg In Three Places And Is Forced To Hand Over Her Job To Her Nasty Deputy While She Recovers Desperate For Something To Do, She Discovers A Talent For Helping The Lovelorn Online Then Along Comes William oh I think I have a new favourite romcom author I enjoyed reading Lucy Robinson s debut, The Greatest Love Story of All Time so when a finished copy of A Passionate Love Affair with a Total Stranger arrive from Francesca Russell at Penguin Michael Joseph I knew I was in for a treat.From the very beginning the reader is made aware of Charley s lifestyle always on the go, organised, health conscious and with never a spare moment It s at the picnic she s organised for lodger Sam in a very short time and with very little sleep to celebrate his engagement to Yvonne when best mate Hayley shows Charley an article about a US entrepreneur who has set up a ghost writing business for online daters Charley receives a text from her boss John which causes her to careen down Salisbury Crags Waking up in hospital to find John sitting on her bed, her bubble is soon burst when ex Dr Nathan Gillies shares information that turns Charley s romantic hopes upside down.Not letting her injury and time off work deter her, she sets up First Date Aid and with the help of Sam, turns the ghost writing into a viable business It s when responding to William for a client that she realises her client is very similar to herself and during the emails, discovers things about herself as well as falling in love with William.Despite the predictability of the plot, the characters and how we arrive there are hugely entertaining Charley entertained me with her approach to life and her interactions with Sam At times I found myself snorting along with her When she falls in love with William and comes to an understanding, her disbelief and then withdrawal only endeared her to me even Charley s eccentric family and best friend Hayley round out the story with subplots and the rivalry between Charley and Margot at Salutech gives the reader the conflict and a character we love to detest Margot really did make my skin crawl The attraction and intimacy with CEO John is quite electric and the other romance no spoilers is beautifully written I loved the build up to the scene at the Stage Manager s desk, from Charley sat on the edge of the stage to the mad dash up the stairs and finally to the audience s cheers that filtered up to them The romance fitted perfectly with what we know about the personalities of the characters.A Passionate Love Affair with a Total Stranger is a well paced and entertaining read with characters easy to identify with You may well find yourself cheering, will definitely find yourself laughing snorting and certainly you ll be clenching your fists when Margot is around You may have the odd tear too At the end you will sigh and feel that all is right with the world This is a story that will leave you with that feel good factor.I would like to thank the publishers for providing a copy in exchange for an honest review. A heartrending, stirring novel that touches you with its deep meaning and truth drawing clarityThis beautiful book tugs at the heartstrings of human emotion with such poignancy, sincerity and warmth Lucy Robinson captures perfectly those butterflies within your stomach as the moment transpires with one glance, to a detailed character study of the ups and downs of any relationship A romantic comedy complete with attractive, likable characters that you easily connect and relate to amidst an interesting plot that keeps you guessing throughout I really enjoyed this delightful page turner, which appeals to a wide readership including those who enjoy classic fiction, romance and chick lit Gripping and utterly absorbing this compelling read will make you laugh out loud, gasp in shock and have you clutching the pages so tightly that your knuckles turn white Charley Lambert typifies the workaholic woman, that when she suddenly looses all control becomes open and perceptive to all that surrounds her It is when she lets her guard down that we can truly empathize, for no one is flawless nor is falling in and out of love unproblematic This realistic insight into the world of online dating, unrequited love and the ultimate pursuit of happiness An outstanding novel by an accomplished author that I predict as this year s bestseller, which in quintessence captures life and love in a snapshot I am so impressed by this ingenuous novel that is full of warmth, optimism and fulfillment I would like to thank Real Readers for sending me an ARC of A passionate love affair with a total stranger by Lucy Robinson, to read and review. I love books like that It s about transformation and finding what s important in life, it s sweet and funny, and it s inspirational Charley Lambert is a scary workaholic, so when she breaks her leg and is forced to slow down, she starts falling apart and slowly realises that the life she worked so hard to achieve is a list of chores and doesn t really make her happy She starts helping hopeless daters online, and accidentally falls in love herself through a series of letters Thoroughly recommended, this is a true feel good summer read I was so annoyed by this book that I don t really know where to start Most of the time it felt as if it had too much text This cannot be a good thing, regarding this is a book and books consist of text And when I thought it might finally be over soon, I went to check and boom still 9384 pages left Yay.First the names On the one side there are Gilly from the American online dating service, Dr Nathan Gillies as Charleys ex and Giles as another random sample client What about this Gillinvasion Very uncreative variety On the other side are the nicknames for Charlotte My fingers refuse to type any examples, but I can tell there were too many and they were not funny And those awful names were repeated so often Repetition was a problem itself in general Some things were repeated throughout the whole book too often Like knob for example I never really heard this expression before, but this was definitely enough to last for the rest of my life.Sometimes it was just one expression repeated 34589 times in one paragraph Just to be replaced by the next one You could guess while reading what the next expression would be Nice little game to pass time.I kind of liked that it wasn t too obvious how the story would end There were 3 or 4 potential guys, but they were all rather unsuitable to be THE ONE So it s not too bad that the summary is completely misleading They all had some major disadvantages It was clear that at least one of them had to have a presumably unrealistic change, so I wasn t too disappointed when the changes actually came I wasn t sure what to think about John when he suddenly was in love with Charley for the whole time they knew each other But in the aftermath I think it all turned out quite well Charley s reaction, however, was terrible She thought about his declaration of love for 5 minutes with a lot of doubts in mind And then suddenly just goes all in like a brainless idiot Without any reason to behave this way I was actually quite happy that he only messed around with her Sam s change on the other hand was awful Biggest scruff on earth turns to be an exemplary dream guy Surely just because of some romantic mails So not only his personal development but also the process of him being Charley s friend to the guy she is totally in love with went really poorly I think the skills of transmitting emotions of whatever kind were nonexistent in general Happy emotional sad whatever situations were ALWAYS destroyed by conversations or events of the completely opposite nature Everything is fine, only to be killed by some dramatic interjection of something totally out of context That s exhausting.For example, one day she quits her job and attends her granny s funeral All of the sudden she grows deeper feelings for Sam Out of nowhere The next day she tells her dog Oh I m so sad, I don t have a job any Then Sam joins her and tells her that he s got a job in London Suddenly she s not able to be happy for him because she needs him so much wants to restart the business with him loves him blah although there weren t any hints in that direction before Later everything is overly happy with Charley s parents, her reconcilation with Hailey and their excitement for her little dating company But underneath the warmth of the moment sadness tugged insidiously at me The sadness was called Sam Blah blah There was NOTHING to justify those kind of deep thoughts every 5 minutes.There was actually a quite relevant passage at some point Quite ironic, in fact This cycle scrummy snoggy sugary thoughts followed by sharp and crushing disappointment was killing me It was torment the obsessive cycle EXACTLY That s how this entire book feels The next annoying point is, that everything was too exaggerated It was a very stressful up and down with her job, her family, friends and her love life It was either completely over perfect or totally down Too many too highs immediately destroyed by total lows.Also how Charley passionatly laughs in situations that really do not require that amount of laughter Like when John brought her breakfast to bed just like she fantasized before she decided to sleep with him How is that so hilarious I d rather classify such thing as cool instead of uproariously funny Or when she and Sam behaved like two stupid teenagers at the posh restaurant How old are they 32 That s ridiculous, especially as over professional Charlotte has been in such places before I don t really know how she got her job anyway Why does she let herself be deflated by Margot s blackmailing She s such a loser I thought you have to be tough to become a major communications manager.Sooo, as you can tell I was a little pissed of by this book But the best thing came towards the end OF COURSE did Charley find out, that her grandfather, whom she never got to know, had the same talent as her OF COURSE did he write love letters on behalf of others back in WW2 and was respected by everyone for that skill He wrote such touching letters to her granny And as if that s not enough, Sam COINCIDENTALLY uses the same words in his final revealing I love you speech as Charley s grandpa wrote to her grandma HOW ROMANTIC It s destiny Ksasd lf I can t deal with it DAs a final thought, to calm down a bit, I d like to know why Shelley, who has no time to deal with such a trivial thing as online dating, suddenly has time to arrange such an exaggerated fuss to bring Charley and Sam together chegando o final do ano e com ele aquele estresse para fechar as metas do ano em todos os campos, inclusive os livros Da a melhor coisa a fazer ler coisas leves Primeiro porque chega de estresse, segundo porque coisas leves terminam mais r pido e facilitam atingir a meta de leitura.Como quem l minhas resenhas j percebeu, adoro ler um livro estilo chicklit quando preciso espairecer E agora em dezembro tem uma maratona internacional de romances chamada smutathon, que claro, eu pretendo seguir, ent o resolvi fazer um esquenta.A Passionate Love Affair with a Total Stranger n o foi lan ado no Brasil, e provavelmente n o vai ser t o cedo, visto que n o nenhum Best Seller Mas divertido toda vida de ler Charley Lambert diretora de comunica o de uma mega empresa farmac utica e uma workaholic, at que ela sofre um acidente e precisa ficar parada em casa por semanas antes do pr ximo mega lan amento da sua empresa Como boa workaholic ela inventa o que fazer e cria um pequeno neg cio de ghost writer para mulheres com dificuldade de paquerar pela internet.A hist ria boba, muito boba, e em tanto datada N o t o vi vel em dias de Tinder voc oferecer esse tipo de servi o, fora que a raz o desse tipo de aplicativo hoje em dia n o exatamente o mesmo do in cio dos sites de encontros rom nticos Mas isso n o importa, porque o livro engra ado.N o tem todas as cenas picantes que eu esperava, infelizmente, mas ele compensa no humor Tem umas quest es que surgem de vez em quando de machismos estruturais meio escondidos, mas nada que grite na sua cara e fa a voc ter raiva do livro, o que mais do que pode ser dito da maioria dos livros desse estilo hoje em dia, ent o ponto positivo.Lucy Robinson n o uma autora genial, e A Passionate Love Affair with a Total Stranger n o uma obra prima, mas a leitura leve, divertida e r pida Serve exatamente ao seu prop sito, ent o, se voc est procurando algo leve e divertido de ler essa uma excelente op o. Review originally on I Heart Chick Lit.www.iheart chicklit.blogspot.comI loved Lucy Robinson s debut novel, The Greatest Love Story of All Time as it was absolutely hilarious I loved how Lucy could express her voice through her character, Fran her writing voice is really good tinged with sarcasm and irony Her voice is fresh, new and really funny I actually loved the profanities in the book, as they made the book utterly hilarious When I was offered a chance to review her next book, A Passionate Love Affair with a Total Stranger, I was so thrilled I mean, this is Lucy Robinson we re talking about Writer by day, slacker by night Crap talker, all the time Sorry, but she s really amazing and she s the amazeballs You got to love her.What I thought about it A Passionate Love Affair with a Total Stranger is in fact, a love story Yes, as much as it makes you recoil in disgust at the thought of mushy kisses and passionate snogs It s not that kind of love story It is a complex love story, because the blurb might mention that Charley is captivated by William, that s just ONE part of the book.Initially, I thought the book will revolve around Charley winning over William, her desperate attempts to find The One and of course, kick arse at her job Well, you ll be surprised that, in fact, this is just a few key parts of the book A Passionate Love Affair with a Total Stranger has a very expansive plot Once you get reading, you ll find out that the book does have a proper message in it, which is, finding love through online dating but some people are not what they seem when you meet in the cyberworld.I loved the heroine, Charley, a lot Mainly because I would like to be so proficient and good at my job But no one likes a workaholic, I m sure Sadly, she is one, she deals with her problems by working Work, I mean, she s practically a machine, I tell you She can t sit still, relax or even keep calm, even when she broke her leg, she constantly thinks about her job and the launch of a very VERY important drug For me, Charley started off as a strong, lady, rising to six feet with killer legs Lucy describes her as a stunning, tall lady but instead, ironically, carries herself as a lanky night stalker Sorry, Lucy You re cool with this, eh But as the story progresses, Charley starts to realise what she really wants in life and that s a wonderful story to read I adored her friend and housemate, Sam He s such a wonderful male friend as he may seem scruffy and unruly but has a golden heart He helped Charley during her recovery from her broken leg cook for her, be there for her, support her If only guys like him do exist.The pace of the book was what I needed It was fast, upbeat and well planned I was recovering from my broken heart after reading The First Last Kiss, so A Passionate Love Affair with a Total Stranger was a good distraction from mourning for the lost of a hero I loved so much It was the perfect pick me up for me as it gave me the joyous boost, a reason to laugh and of course, enjoy what Lucy had to offer It was mighty good and it reminded me why I loved Lucy s debut novel so much nostalgia Some parts of the novel made me cackling like an evil witch with a drinking problem and some parts made me want to give Charley a massive hug Verdict Overall, the book was a fantastic read I loved it and managed to finish it in 2 days I stayed up both nights and read it till the crack of dawn That s how good it is It was what modern women s fiction should be funny, light, fluffy and can I say downright hilarious Well, because the way Lucy writes, it is like she s sharing her anecdotes and persuade you to follow her characters stories I loved it as it was cleverly written and achingly funny, what else do you expect from a Marie Claire blogger Rating 5 5 I confess I m getting a little jaded with the whole chick lit genre, apart from Marian Keyes, so I wasn t sure how I d feel about A Passionate Love Affair.Charley Lambert is a chronic over achieving workaholic Free time is anathema to her every moment has to be filled with culturally enriching activities or exercise She shares a flat with Sam, a womanising aspiring actor she has known since her university days and has a fabulously eccentric family to support her When Charley breaks her leg in three places, sees her boss subject of her embarrassing crush propose to another woman,and has to hand her beloved job over to her odious deputy, she is bereft Charley decided from her sick bed, that she ll start up a business helping hapless internet daters connect with each other When one of her clients asks her to start e mailing William on her behalf, Charley finds herself falling in love.A Passionate Love Affair is a very easy read and is full of laughs Lucy Robinson s characters are well rounded and highly believable and are also the type of people you would want to be friends with I did enjoy it and tore through it at a very fast pace Charley is by turns annoying and strangely vulnerable making you sympathise with her while simultaneously giving her a good shake.However, the plot and situations are nothing new for the genre and it is obvious from the beginning who Charley would should end up being with If you are reading a chick lit novel, then you are probably not expecting the author to reinvent the literary wheel But if you are looking for a fun read that will entertain and engage you, A Passionate Affair ticks all the boxes.
