Publisher's Summary

He is Dexter Mayhew, tall, dark and (she can't deny it) handsome. She is Emma Morley, bottled red hair, wilfully badly dressed, all principles and no action. Could this be the dawn of the rest of their lives? Or are Dex and Em living proof that - despite an unlikely beginning - men and women really can be just good friends?

Funny and moving story of friendship

There is a view that women like romance and men like jokes. Here you get both. The comedy lures you in and the romance hits you with a great emotional wallop.

This story follows the trajectories of Emma’s and Dexter’s lives, checking in on their intersecting lives once a year, every July 15, from 1988 through 2007. I laughed out loud, and it made me call up old friends. I loved everything about this audiobook, the narration is very well done and I didn't want it to end.

The romance, though, is handled in a bloke-friendly way. There is no sentiment, no gushing, nothing Mills & Boon-ish. Actions are left to speak for themselves and the emotions, quite realistically, are a bit of a tangled mess.

A lot depends on how you feel about the two main characters. I loved them, and I am sure you will to. Highly recommended.

Slow to get going - Nice story but not worth the length

A nice story but slow to get going. The narrator made it hard for me to get to know one of the main characters who she made sound older than she was and made it difficult for me. A nice story but I wouldn't hang in there for the full read again.
