Happy Book Birthday for Love Offline by Olivia Spring, a great romcom that will make you giggle throughout!

With all the current craziness that is 2020 I am excited to share my review for the light hearted read Love Offline whilst celebrating it’s Book Birthday!!

My Review

Love Offline is a book to make you laugh, crave cake and reflect on your own use of social media.

I loved meeting Emily and Chloe who have the most amazing friendship. After Emily was left broken hearted, Chloe embarks on a mission to get Emily back out in the real world and off of social media. A story that revolves around trust, friendship, self belief and love. I found myself laughing as Emily starts to tentatively agree to the gauntlet that Chloe has thrown down.

After spending most of 2020 at home, I fully appreciate the apprehension of Emily as Chloe resolves to get her back socialising and in the real world and talking rather than messaging through dating apps. With self esteem being a major obstacle and Emily having to overcome the belief that all images on social media need to be posed, with filtered images and well thought out hashtags. It was refreshing to see this woven into the story and how Emily began to overcome need for social media, as it’s a real world issue especially for our teenagers and young adults.

I love a good romcom and this book ticks all the boxes, you will giggle throughout and find yourself encouraging her to be bold and take the step back into the real world.

Book Blurb

Emily’s Struggling To Find Romance Online. Will Ditching The Dating Apps Lead To True Love?

Online dating isn’t working for introvert Emily. Although she’s comfortable swiping right at home in her PJs, the idea of going out to meet a guy in person fills her with dread.

So when her best friend challenges her to ditch the apps, attend a load of awkward singles’ events and find love in real life, Emily wants to run for the hills.

Then she meets Josh. He’s handsome, kind and funny, but Emily’s had her heart crushed before and knows he’s hiding something…

Is Josh too good to be true? Can Emily learn to trust again and if she does, will it lead to love or more heartache?

Love Offline is a fun, sexy, entertaining story about friendship, stepping outside of your comfort zone and falling in love the old-fashioned way. Ideal for fans of Sophie Kinsella, Lindsey Kelk and Beth O’Leary’s The Flatshare.

Available to purchase Amazon UK / Amazon US

Love Offline is available to read for FREE in Kindle Unlimited. It is also available to read for FREE in Prime Reading until late November

I am a total bookworm who loves nothing more than to lose herself in a book. My pile of books to read is teetering higher and higher as there are not enough hours in the day compared to how many old and new amazing books there are out there to read. I love to read in my spare time and books are a massive part of our household. I feel really lucky that Daisy also loves losing herself in the amazing worlds the authors are creating for us and neither of us ever go very far without having a book to hand as you never know when an opportunity to read may present itself.
