To Sir, With Love
Summary: Love Is Blind meets You’ve Got Mail in this laugh-out-loud romantic comedy following two thirty-somethings who meet on a blind dating app—only to realize that their online chemistry is nothing compared to their offline rivalry.
Perpetually cheerful and eager to please, Gracie Cooper strives to make the best out of every situation. So when her father dies just five months after a lung cancer diagnosis, she sets aside her dreams of pursuing her passion for art to take over his Midtown Manhattan champagne shop. She soon finds out that the store’s profit margins are being squeezed perilously tight, and complicating matters further, a giant corporation headed by the impossibly handsome, but irritatingly arrogant Sebastian Andrews is proposing a buyout to turn the store into a parking garage. But Gracie can’t bear the thought of throwing away her father’s dream like she did her own.
Overwhelmed and not wanting to admit to her friends or family that she’s having second thoughts about the shop, Gracie seeks advice and solace from someone she’s never met—the faceless “Sir”, with whom she connected on a blind dating app where matches get to know each other through messages and common interests before exchanging real names or photos.
But although Gracie finds herself slowly falling for Sir online, she has no idea she’s already met him in real life…and they can’t stand each other.
Traveling With T’s Thoughts:
My friend, Dany aka the book pusher of Canada, has been after me to read a Lauren Layne book for like EVER. And I kept telling her I would give LL a try. But I had all these other books to get around to reading first. And then I saw To Sir, With Love. And I had such a GOOD feeling about it- the cover was perfection, it sounded like that cutesy type book I just crave from time to time, and so I hit that request button on Netgalley like super fast like The Flash and held my breath (well metaphorically held my breath).
And I got approved like super fast. And since i had been reading a crap ton of mystery/suspense type books and needed something to let my brain take a break from missing women-ish stories- I sat down with a bowl of Lucky Charms and this book one morning. And then I finished it that afternoon. I was SO sucked in. I even gave up on watching re-runs of Chicago PD (and I LOVE that show) to read this book.
What I Liked:
The cover! So perfectly charming.
The banter! Not only between Sir and Lady but Gracie and Sebastian (which keep up because I know they are all the same people, but the banter was a wee bit different with each persona). I love a good banter back and forth between 2 people and Lauren Layne delivered on that. Yes, she did.
The ending. All. The. Hearts.
Bottom line: Yep, this was good book. I REALLY enjoyed it. Cutesy and fun!!!!!
