We Just Clicked by Anna Bell (2020)

Publisher's Information

A fabulously funny, feel-good novel that will make you laugh until you cry, for anyone who’s ever presented a perfectly-filtered life online to hide the unglamorous reality.

Izzy Brown has always dreamed of being an Instagram influencer. So when her colleague and fellow Instagrammer Luke suggests they ‘fake date’ to boost their profiles, Izzy says yes – against her better judgement.

Now Izzy’s profile tells the story of a confident, glamorous thirty-something with the perfect boyfriend, and her follower numbers are shooting upwards. So what if Izzy can’t stop bickering with Luke, his habit of checking his quiff in every single mirror is driving her insane, and behind the scenes, she’s hiding a secret heartache? Everyone tells a few fibs on social media, right?

But when Izzy runs into Aidan, the mysterious stranger who saved her the day her world fell apart two years ago, major sparks start to fly between them. Izzy’s sure she can have the online success she’s always dreamed of, whilst continuing to fall in love – and heal her heart – in real life. After all, Aidan doesn’t use social media… what could possibly go wrong?

If you loved Sophie Kinsella’s My Not-So-Perfect Life, Laura Jane Williams’ Our Stop or Sophie Ranald’s Sorry Not Sorry, you will fall head over heels for this touching and hilarious new novel from Anna Bell, the bestselling author of The Bucket List to Mend a Broken Heart.

I absolutely adored this book. Funny, romantic and with a tinge of sadness these characters had my full attention all the way through. As soon as Aidan appeared in the opening scenes I knew I was going to love this character as much as Izzy would. 

Grief and loss are always difficult to experience and navigate around but the author blended it so nicely with all the other moments of fun and humour which is so true to life as grief isn't an emotion experienced in isolation. The parts where Izzy talks about her brother Ben are quite sad and emotional but it really added depth and heart to the book.

This book also does female friendships really well. Izzy's friends and her other friends at work provided hilarity and many heartwarming scenes.

      A lovely romantic comedy that will have you laughing and crying!
