Mr Right Across the Street
by Kathryn Freeman (Goodreads Author) 3.73 · Rating details · 160 ratings · 128 reviewsMia Abbott’s move to Manchester was supposed to give her time and space from all the disastrous romantic choices she’s made in her past. But then the hot guy who lives opposite – the one who works out every day at exactly 10 a.m., not that Mia has noticed thank-you-very-much – starts leaving notes in his window…for her.
Bar owner Luke Doyle has his own issues to deal with but as he shows Mia the sites of her new city he also shows her what real romance looks like for the first time. And when he cooks up a signature cocktail in her honour, she realises that the man behind the bar is even more enticing than any of his creations. And once she’s had a taste she knows it will never be enough!
My review: I am almost a week late with this since it was published on the 22nd.
This book was just ok for me. I stay interested in it about halfway through. I definitely feel like the book could have been shorter than it was. I liked the fact that Mia wanted to be friends with Luke at first. It is hard to see that type of situations in romance books now, a lot are definitely instalove.
I didn’t really understand the whole not giving out phone number thing except to those closest to her. Once they became friends they could have stopped with the notes. It was cute at first then that also dragged a bit.
There were also a lot of stereotypes done in this book especially because of the main girl character. She judged Luke constantly despite the fact that he was changing other people.
All in all, it wasn’t all bad. I was interested in the first half and this was a three star rating. This does not mean it was bad. Just could have been better.
Thank you Netgalley and publishers for giving me the chance to read this. My thoughts and opinions are my own.
Thank you for reading!
