Welcome back to Goodreads Monday! It’s been a very hot minute since I did one but I figured I might as well get back into it! This weekly meme was started by @Lauren’s Page Turners and it invites you to pick a book from your TBR and explain why you want to read it. Easy enough, right? Feel free to join in if you want to! I’ll be using a random number generator to pick my books from my insanely long GR Want-to-read list.*
*Sorry if a book has been featured twice. I need to make better note of which ones I’ve done already!
This week’s featured book is Mr. Right Across the Street by Kathryn Freeman. This is a contemporary romance that is set to be published this month (22 Jan 2021) and currently has a 3.76 rating on Goodreads with just over 50 reviews.
Mia Abbott’s move to Manchester was supposed to give her time and space from all the disastrous romantic choices she’s made in her past. But then the hot guy who lives opposite – the one who works out every day at exactly 10 a.m., not that Mia has noticed thank-you-very-much – starts leaving notes in his window…for her.
Bar owner Luke Doyle has his own issues to deal with but as he shows Mia the sites of her new city he also shows her what real romance looks like for the first time. And when he cooks up a signature cocktail in her honour, she realises that the man behind the bar is even more enticing than any of his creations. And once she’s had a taste she knows it will never be enough!
Why do I want to read it?
How cute is this cover? That’s not the only reason I want to read it of course but it doesn’t hurt to look at something so adorable! I liked the sound of this synopsis and when a blog tour for it came up with Rachel’s Random Resources, I decided to sign up for it and I got in! This sounds so freaking cute and I can’t wait to read it! I think perhaps it was The Flatshare that sparked my love of leaving notes for another person. It’s definitely giving me those same lovely feel-good vibes and we all could use a little bit more of that these days, eh?
Have you read Mr. Right Across the Street or is it on your TBR?
