Genre: Romantic Comedy/Women’s Fiction

My Rating: 4 out of 5


Landing a new job as online agony uncle “Ask Adam” Lucy dishes out relationship tips to men. But when it comes to her own love life, she’d rather spend Friday nights curled up on her sofa with Netflix and her cat, Astro.

That is, until she meets Ross, her new co-worker who makes her snort with laughter at his silly jokes and sets off butterflies in her stomach when his hazel eyes meet hers over his laptop.

After her last work boyfriend broke her heart, Lucy swore she’d never fall for someone in the office again. And she’s just about to have two more good reasons not to.

  1. An email has just landed in the “Ask Adam” inbox and Lucy is convinced it’s from Ross.
  2. He’s most definitely not single.

As her advice column goes viral and her inbox overflows with problems, Lucy turns to her AI assistant for help decoding romantic troubles, including her own. Can her state-of-the-art cupid really help her navigate her feelings for Ross? Or will the truth behind “Ask Adam” turn her non-existent love life into a hot mess?

My Review of The Love Hack

This is the first book I have read by this author, and overall I really enjoyed the story. We are introduced to the main character, Lucy straight away – she has just her job as a columnist at a women’s magazine and doesn’t know what to do now. After spending some quality time with her sister, Lucy comes up with a plan to pitch to the magazine. She comes up with the idea of starting an advice column for men called ‘Ask Adam’ – the only problem is Lucy knows absolutely nothing about men!

Starting her new role means working with a whole new team – including her co-worker Ross, who just keeps making Lucy laugh and blush with his jokes. But, just as we think there is chemistry between Lucy and Ross, we are taken on a massive rollercoaster of emotions with complicated character twists and turns, and with Lucy wondering if Ross is the kind of guy she thought he was, or were all her vibes wrong about him?

The Love Hack is a cute read, with characters that are complicated and flawed, but leaves you with a real heat-warming feeling. A great book for a cosy/sunny Sunday afternoon of relaxing and chilled reading.
