Love Sucks


Tired of hearing about how 'love is all you need' and that 'love will conquer all'? Does the idea of balloons, love hearts, boxes of chocolates and birds suddenly appearing make your teeth ache with the sickly saccharine clichéd insanity? How about some real talk? It's all a farce. Love sucks. As Charles Bukowski said, "If there are junk yards in hell, love is the dog that guards the gates."

The reality is, love is a madness that makes fools of all of us, and we're better off without it. Whether you're broken-hearted or just wise to the idiocy of love, know that you're not alone. Love Sucks is a gorgeously illustrated collection of funny, bitter and brutally truthful quotes about how truly terrible love is, from music, film, TV, literature and history's greatest and most jaded minds.

Cake at Midnight

 

Giovanna, Zoë and Declan have always been a trio – their fierce friendship has seen them through every heartbreak and hardship and helped pave the way to brighter futures. Gio is a passionate baker of cakes, pastries and all things delicious, Zoë a take-no-prisoners beauty, and Declan an ambitious businessman on the way up.

Best friends forever, Gio thinks – until her lifelong crush on Declan is exposed, leaving her humiliated. Gio realises she needs to cut him loose to get over him once and for all.

Enter Theo, Gio's neighbour... She's never met anyone like him before. He doesn't talk much, but he's kind, he's sexy, he's generous and he's often awake in the middle of the night, like Gio. Theo has a sweet tooth and a mysterious history and Gio can't seem to stay away.

Thanks to the power of sleepless nights and chocolate cake, Gio thinks she's finally over Declan, but then his whole world turns upside down. Gio knows she can't desert Declan in his time of need, but how can she explain a lifetime of love to Theo?

The Right Girl


Freya has the best life – she's officially in love and her floristry business, Blooming Brilliant, is going from strength to strength.

Two years ago, it was a different story. She was barely employed as the worst waitress in the world, with no hope of a boyfriend, and no bank balance. But then she got BBest, a lifestyle app that knows you better than you know yourself. It changed everything. It streamlined her life, taking her likes and dislikes and skills and foibles, and gave her the best options so she doesn't make mistakes anymore. Freya has never looked back – and neither has anyone else. Everyone loves BBest, it's a game changer.

But if she's so in love, why doesn't it feel exactly right? And who is that mysterious man in her beloved grandfather's bookshop with soulful eyes that leave her unstitched? All of a sudden Freya has so many questions – and no one seems to be able to answer them. She begins to wonder what she really agreed to when she let BBest into her life. Then her grandfather is arrested, and Freya is thrust into a world she could never have imagined in her shiny, successful existence.

When you have the perfect life, should you listen to your head or your heart?
