What is it about?

Things Pippa loves her job, airplanes, synonyms and tropical fish.

Things Pippa does not enjoy: repeating patterns, tight clothes, people asking why she’s single and school reunions.

After four months of only speaking over intercom, when air-traffic controller Pippa Edwards finally meets pilot Andrew Boyce-Jones face-to-face, they discover they’ve got much more in common than simply working at the same airport. In fact . . . they both need a date. Tired of every relationship ending before it’s even begun, Pippa wants to evade the inevitable questions at her dreaded ten-year school reunion in Cape Town. And Andrew needs to get his well-meaning family off his back about settling down. The solution seems simple. A pact – a fake dating pact – for as long as it’s mutually beneficial. It’s perfect.

Or at least it would be if their very real attraction wasn’t about to make Pippa question everything she thought she wanted. . . (via Goodreads)

I have always loved reading neurodivergent characters, and reading Pippa, our FMC, was such a fun experience. She was so genuine you can’t help but empathise and relate to her at times.

Andrew, our MMC, was so cute, lighthearted and just so perfect for Pippa. I loved how he loved and treasured Pippa the way he did.

Friends to lovers is one of my favourite tropes, and I loved reading Pippa and Andrew’s story of how they went from strangers to friends to lovers; it was so wholesome and cute.

If you like romcoms, you must read this one.

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for giving me an eARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Tell me, would you read this book?

love, Lin
