Surely not. There's no rule of English grammar requiring a nominative form where a pronoun is complement of "be". Of course, not!! Often it certainly is not you. One day you will meet someone who loves you for who you are and not for who they want you to be. You can pretend for a long time, but it will never make you happy. A lovely story that I thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you, Sophie Ranald, Bookouture and Netgalley. May 12, Sammi rated it really liked it Shelves: twenty-nineteen.
This book is a decent romantic comedy. Definitely has all the right aspects. I adored Josh and would have loved to have seen more of him in the story. It also frustrated me a bit. Her obsession to get back with her ex and her jealousy kind of overtook the story. This book has great writing. Solid characters and is just a fun, easy read! I would like to thank NetGalley and Bookouture for providing me with a copy of this gorgeous book.

Please note: I received an advance digital copy of this book through NetGalley from Bookouture in exchange for a honest review.
This does not influence my opinions in any way. So how does she go about achieving this goal? And maybe bring a new boyfriend along to make him jealous. How could he possibly resist her? I know. Also her dire financial situation is very relatable and really made me feel for her. I did struggle with her using people though. Not how I like to see the fake relationship trope play out and that was mainly why I picked up this book.
That badly done. And Josh, my dear sweet Aussie man, I wish we got more scenes, more time with him. But I felt it was brushed aside and then easily resolved. I honestly felt at one time the story was trying to juggle too many plot-lines—working as a fashion buyer under a toxic boss, her desire to help out an upcoming designer, her dire finances and inability to help her mother with expenses, her eating disorder—-that her romance with Josh was buried under it all.
I did love the London setting and the occasional mention of Italian culture. It reminded me of Europe and made me long to go back on another holiday. I loved Adam and Freezer the cat, who were simply adorable. Tansy just can't bring herself to accept that her 6-month long relationship with the man she thinks is the one for her is over. She decides to make it her mission to get Renzo back and enlists help from her housemate Adam to get updates on him, as both the guys work in the same place. Tansy not only has to deal with her heartbreak, but also her work as a fashion buyer for an online boutique, in addition to money problems what with sending money to help out her parents back home.
She also takes o Tansy just can't bring herself to accept that her 6-month long relationship with the man she thinks is the one for her is over. She also takes on another personal mission - Chelsea, a young girl who independently sells clothes she personally makes and designs. It took me time to get into the story. Because the author takes time to set the story up. But this is necessary for us to get a proper insight into Tansy's character. She's a little naive, a bit of a romantic.
We see flashbacks of her time back in school to see what made her this way. Things get complicated when she's forced to let her former employer's son become a temporary housemate. This happens to be the same guy who she has bad memories with back from school. It always makes me happy when a protagonist has real life problems that I can relate to. All the characters were interesting with some solid female friendships.
But my favorite perhaps was Adam, an amazing friend and all-round adorable guy, not to mention his possessiveness over a certain cat. There was also a particular scene where Tansy gets a surprise from her friend that just mad my heart melt! My only complaint is that it's a bit slow in the beginning, which while understanding takes away from initial enjoyment.
The romance was also unpredictable but enjoyable, and yet I'd have liked a little more buildup to it. But overall, it's a heartening and engaging story with a lovely heroine. Charlotte and Xander just left on their honeymoon and that leaves a room open in the house. Josh, an old school friend of Tansy moves in, as a favour to his mother, who was a mentor for Tansy at the start of her career in fashion.
Tansy is a very likable woman, she works for a mean boss, but she stays because she admires his rise to the top, and she enjoys her job. She takes on a young girl to mentor, and I really enjoyed their interactions. It was good to see more of Adam. He is an interesting character and tends to do and say some unpredictable things.
Josh was great, but he was more in the background until the very end.

This was a quick, and fairly entertaining read. I received an advanced copy of the book from Netgalley to review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. ARC provided by Net Galley and the publishing house in exchange of an honest review. Everything in this books was so well written and it entertained me so much, that I was seeing pictures and not words. The book follows Tansy, a 26 year old British woman working in the fashion industry. We see the good, the bad and the funny things her life offers her. I really loved every single character in this book except someone very rude and very Italian and I found myself wanting to enter their lives and talk and laugh with them all.
One other major thing I enjoyed in this book, was the diversity. It may not scream rainbows, but there where some characters were that made me like this even more. Major trigger warning for eating disorders. I really enjoyed this, and I hope I get to read more of this authors work. Thank you Net Galley! I really like Ms. Ranald's stuff and if you're in the mood for chick-lit or a rom-com, she's an excellent choice for one. This book was decent, but didn't enjoy it the way I thought I would. It wasn't the quality of the book at fault. I took something from the blurb that hinted at one of my favourite tropes - and was partially correct - but there was more to it than that.
Totally my own issue here. To be more clear, I'm not a fan of romances featuring more than one love interest. I pretty much a I really like Ms. I pretty much avoid even the hint of a triangle, but especially so on a specific side of a potential couple. I admit I missed any sign - even a perhaps quite obvious one - that the story might not go as I expected. But to avoid any confusion, this is NOT a triangle. Nothing super heavy here. Not what I would call 'fluff,' some mild angst but no real drama. It's an easy read with characters that feel and act real and are pretty easy to relate to.

There's nobody truly unlikable here, and even the ones you perhaps should dislike don't warrant much in the way of apathy. I'd recommend the book. It wasn't exactly my cuppa, but I'd wager it will be for others. As for me, I will be waiting for Ms. Ranald's next offering. Copy received from NetGalley in exchange for feedback.

Tansy got dumped by her dream guy Renzo and she planned on getting him back. She went through all sorts of schemes and plots. This was funny enough but some parts dragged for me. Tansy had a tough school life and part of why she has her own hang ups. It continued on for her as she got older.

I wanted to see if her plans worked in getting back her ex only to realize that there were red flags she didn't realize. So many times she could've done something about the messy stuff in her life, yes I get that it's not easy but she had these thoughts in her head just didn't want to take action.
I wish it had more resolution than near the end wrap it all up fast. Josh the other guy in the picture had a past with teenage Tansy and it clouded her view of him since. He grew up and was actually more mature. Tansy used him for one of her plots and it backfired. The setting was my favorite part the whole fashion and London scene. Tansy had lots of growing to do and accepting the real her it was a good start. It did have the British rom com vibe that was always great to read.
I just felt like it could have been more, the other romance was also slow lots of misunderstandings that suddenly went from zero to It was an ok read but not one I read straight through.

In the mean time, she's dealing with the financial fallout of living above her means the result of having gotten used to being able to do whatever she wants financially because of Renzo's high class lifestyle , the lifelong ramifications of her father's gambling addiction, her own past history of an eating disorder, and chaos at work in the fashion industry. This book is FAR "heavier" than it seems at first glance, but it is absolutely worth it.
It's not sexy or swoony-- it's the story of a girl trying to claw herself back together and figuring out what that means for her along the way. Jun 15, Emmie rated it liked it.

With the help of a new wing-woman, a credit card she can max out and an inside man, Tansy finds herself accidently-on-purpose bumping into him at every opportunity. Not only does she help her family out financially she fights for what she believes in, even if that is her relationship with Renzo.
This is the first book of Sophie Ranald I've read and whilst I did enjoy the book there were several things I struggled with. I found the first half of the book slow, with no real momentum with the storyline other than Tansy over-spending and pestering her roommate to get her information about Renzo. It became a bit repetitive to me and I found myself getting bored. The second half was a lot better and the drama really intensified, but I still felt that it lacked something. I would have liked more scenes with Josh and Tansy, I wanted to watch their relationship develop and instead it felt incredibly rushed.
Want to add to the discussion?
Whilst the book touched on important subjects such as eating disorders and gambling, I felt like they were made important enough. I felt that when they were mentioned it was incredibly out of place and brushed off rather quickly. Overall it was a good read but I personally just felt like it fell flat from the beginning which hindered what could have been a fantastic book.

Enlisting the help of her house mate, Tansy concocts a plan, but then has a much better idea when childhood friend, Josh comes to stay. Will Renzo become the green eyed monster like Tansy has planned! The story started off s Tansy has been dumped by her boyfriend, Renzo. The story started off slowly but this, for me, was great as it built up the story for Tansy and this is where you really begin to get to know her. As the book moved on, so did the storyline and by the second half of the book the story was really brought to life, with it being full of laughs and plenty of love!!
The story is told from the past and present, and this was great to see what happened to Tansy previously and how she meet Renzo. All of the characters were great and added to the story — with the exception of Renzo of course!! I did however want to give Tansy a big shake and tell her to snap out of her obsession with Renzo as you just knew there was much better for her around the corner!! Whilst I thought it was going to be a chick-lit read throughout, it was also a book with some serious topics and issues which were brought to the reader with sensitivity and tact.
Tansy is a very insecure character and going back to her past this obviously stems from there. There is also the topics of eating disorders and gambling discussed and unusually, low-paid workers specifically in the fashion industry even gets a mention. All in all, I really enjoyed this book! There were plenty of laugh out loud moments and I loved the relationship between Tansy and Josh!!
A book full of love and laughter and well written, I shall certainly be looking for more books by this author! Jun 21, Laura Doherty rated it liked it.

I found her shallow, a little vain and lacking substance. Even worse was the fact that Renzo sounded like such a complete tosser I was judging her pretty harshly for even wanting to.
It's Not You It's Him
She is that one shallow friend we all have who drives you absolutely nuts, but whose life is such a car crash you want to know all the details. I appreciated how through Tansy, the author was able to comment on the impossible standards of today. Be body positive yet still be only a size 8?
Is that fair to anyone? During the course of all this you see Tansy trying to manage her career, deal with family issues and hang out with her friends and housemates. I actually found it easier to warm to the secondary characters and developed a soft spot for Adam as well as Freezer the cat. The book is a semi-humorous take on the ending of a relationship and the slight obsessiveness one can develop. Tansy does it all the drunk texting, social media stalking and the crazy half-assed plans to win her ex back. I received this product for free in return for providing my honest and unbiased review.

I really appreciated her efforts into including these topics that are taboo to some. The second have of the book was better in my opinion.

Along the way she discovers a few things about herself and her past. Tansy was ok.
I had a little trouble relating to her. Her desperation to win Renzo back got in the way of seeing who she really was. The stuff that happened to her in grade school and high school seemed to weigh very heavily on her still. I liked her roommates Adam and Josh. In terms of writing, the plot was a bit muddled with little things.
There was too much description for my liking. I also found Tansy to be in her head a lot. The backstory relating to her weight was a bit too subtle until the very end. Right now he was in Rome visiting his family. She felt they were ready to take the next step and make their relationship official. Now she probably was the most miserable. Renzo said he thought he loved her and she told him she loved him too but than she told him she had something to tell him.
She told him the truth that had been gnawing at her since the day they met and he dumped her in front of everyone it made quite a spectacle. She decided to spend New Year's Eve with Charlotte and her friends. Tansy said for New Years resolution was getting Renzo back. Tansy had already sent him several messages but he never replied. Tansy was a fashion buyer for an online fashion boutique. Her boss is horrible to work for. Tansy even fakes a new boyfriend to try to make Renzo jealous. Josh is an old school friend and moves into the house.

I was glad I read this book but not a favorite. At times I made myself keep reading as I was ready to give up on the book. It dragged a lot for me. But I did like seeing tansy grow as the book went on. I did chuckle a couple of times while reading this. I liked Tansy tried to help her family.
I liked how Tansy started making decisions for herself. I loved that the author brought in a lot of different issues like gambling addiction, anorexia, and bullying and more. So I gave this a three but actually wanted to give it a 3. Jun 07, Lisa Jenkins rated it really liked it. I really enjoyed this book.
