Title: Did You Miss Me?
Author: Sophia Money-Coutts (Narrated by Author)
Genre: Romance/ Women’s Fiction/ Contemporary Fiction
Goodreads Rating: 3.71
Nell Mason is extremely happy with her life – or at least, that’s what she tells herself. She’s lucky to have a high-powered job as a lawyer, even if it does come with an eccentric set of billionaire divorce clients. And she’s absolutely fine living with her sweet, if slightly dull, boyfriend Gus in their London flat where they have very sensible sex once (OK, sometimes twice) a week. She’s definitely not stuck in a rut.
But when Nell bumps into childhood friend and first love Arthur Drummond who broke her heart fifteen years ago, she’s more than a little shaken. The seemingly perfect life she’s worked so hard for starts to feel, well, less perfect. Maybe Nell’s been kidding herself all these years. Can she ever get over her first love?
I’d like to thank NetGalley and HQ for approving me for an ARC of this book.
This is the first time that I have read anything by Sophia Money-Coutts but it certainly won’t be my last. From the first page I found myself chuckling away and I still find myself giggling about the phone sex scene even now! The book was littered with sarcastic humour and I loved it!
The story is told entirely from the POV of Nell, who is stuck in a rut. She’s surrounded by men that are only dragging her down. Whether it’s Gus, the dull and boring boyfriend, her maniac of a boss of Prince Pervert, she can’t seem to escape them!
When Nell was called back to her hometown I instantly felt like she was relaxing more, even if she found her dad trying at times! I was very intrigued to know what happened between herself and Art all those years ago and I thought the way it unravelled was delivered perfectly. Whilst I knew where the story was heading there were some surprises along the way.
This was a lovely story about teenage heart break, love, family and not being afraid to make the jump. Nell was relatable, funny and someone everyone would love to call a friend. I can not wait to read everything else Sophia Money-Coutts has written!
