What to expect


Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Love by the Book by Mellisa Pimentel, read by Becca Stewart.

Can a single girl really have no-strings sex minus the heartache?

Lauren moves to London looking for fun, not commitment. So why do the men she dates assume she's searching for The One and run for the hills?

It's time for drastic action. Lauren turns her love life into an experiment, vowing to obey the advice of a different dating guide each month. She'll follow The Rules and play The Game to discover the science behind being a no-strings siren.

But modern dating is more complicated than swiping right - and Lauren's about to discover that the things you run from tend to catch up with you . . .

A clever premise, wittily delivered in upbeat, wisecracking style. Lauren's encounters provide a colourful snapshot of modern men and dating mores, while her breezy promiscuity makes Bridget Jones look positively nun-like. All good, dirty fun - and there's a great twist to how she gets her guy in the end. American Pimentel writes lyrically of her adopted city, and her insights into the British are as spot-on as they are hilarious
