Overview

A Hopeless Romantic by Harriet Evans

From the bestselling author of Going Home, which Sophie Kinsella hailed as “fabulous,” comes a novel sure to touch and delight anyone who believes in love.

Laura Foster is a hopeless romantic. Her friends know it, her parents know it—even Laura acknowledges she lives either with her head in the clouds or buried in a romance novel. It’s proved harmless enough, even if it hasn’t delivered her a real-life dashing hero yet. But when her latest relationship ends in a disaster that costs her friendships, her job, and nearly her sanity, Laura swears off men and hopeless romantic fantasies for good.

With her life in tatters around her, Laura agrees to go on vacation with her parents. After a few days of visiting craft shops and touring the stately homes of England, Laura is ready to tear her hair out. And then, while visiting grand Chartley Hall, she crosses paths with Nick, the sexy, rugged estate manager. She finds she shares more than a sense of humor with him—in fact, she starts to think she could fall for him. But is Nick all he seems? Or has Laura got it wrong again? Will she open her heart only to have it broken again?

I work at a barnes and noble and i read a lot of books and i'd just like to say that this book has become my favorite! Harriet Evens did a wonderful job on writing hopeless romantic. Her characters are very strong and realistic. Throughout Lauras experience in london and on holiday you can visualize every bar, house and character that she described. I stayed up till 430 in the morning trying to get to the end to see what happens. You will NOT be able to put this book down, its toxic 'but in a good way!'.

I loved this book. I adore this book. This book was brilliant. It's a big, fat, juicy read. It's smart, and clever, and full of interesting characters. It was by far the best book in my recent list of reads. As I was alerted to the fact this morning by the person on the other side of the pillow mountain that it was 1 am and I was still up, I announced, 'I know!' and went back to reading. Laura is a romantic to beat all. She sees the good in everyone, to the point of it being an almost fatal flaw. Her current relationship ends in ruins, she almost gets fired, and she loses her chance to go on holiday. Instead, she embarks on a mild adventure with her parents in honor of her grandmother's eighty fifth birthday celebration. Amidst stuffy conversation, she's bored out of her mind, until she meets Nick one fateful day. The pace is great, there are no loose ends, the characters are well developed, and I was in tears by the end. I got this copy from the library, but it is one I would consider owning to loan out to girlfriends in need! If you like Brit-chick lit, you'll love this one! A +++++++++

I absolutely adored this book. It is the perfect book for any chick-lit lover. I tore through the 500 pages in a couple of days and only wish it was longer. Her characters are very well developed and you can't help but fall in love with Laura, the main character. Evans' other book Going Home is equally as fantastic.

This book was just amazing. I loved it and just couldn't put it down. Laura realizes herself as a hopeless romantic and as her most recent relationship fails, she later decides to give up romance. But soon she meets Nick, who may be her very own Prince charming, but can't find herself believing in love again and opening up her heart to someone else. This is a book where you'' find yourself in tears, laughing, and enjoying every minute of it.

At best, this book was okay. There were some parts I liked, but not enough to give the book two stars (I mean it wasn't a terrible book). The heroine is annoying and so freaking stupid. I'm sure the author tried to give the heroine some depth to her character. An unsuccessful task in my opinion. Heck, I'm not even sure the heroine LEARNED anything by the end of the book. And speaking of the ending - utterly disappointing. If you're a fan of well written endings, do not read this book. You will be sorely let down. I don't know what the author was thinking when she wrote this. Like, WTFUDGE?! Not only was the last couple of pages rushed, it was like, hero and heroine separate for a little while then BAM! I won't spoil it for prospective readers. I had a ton of questions that never got answered. I know absence makes the heart grow fonder but sheesh. The romance/love in this book is not to die for; in fact, I can hardly call it love.

Read quite a few reviews and was excited to read this book. But i was pretty dissapointed actually. It was super predictable and it was really hard to keep my interest. Started this book and kept setting it down to read another instead. Finally finished it today so that I didn't feel like I wasted my money.

(Sorry about the long wait, went on vaca and had no wifi.) Sam lifted my chin up and I stared into his soft brown eyes as he stared into mine. He leaned closer and kissed me lightly on the lips. As he broke the kiss I stared, not knowing what to do. "What? Surprised that I like you?" He asked playfully, all I could do was nod. He smiled the same smile when I met him. I smiled back and put my arms around his neck, pulling him down for another kiss. As we broke the kiss we heard girls giggling in the hallway. I motioned for him to stay and went to see who had seen us. When I opened the door I saw 2 of my friends, Sara and Ashley. I don't see them much because they're the most popular girls, so they're too busy to hang with me. I stared, wondering how much they had overheard or seen. When they noticed me they stopped giggling and only smiled the all-knowing-smile that everyone with something to hide fears. I opened the door the rest of the way and let them enter. When I got back to sit down I was still blushing and noticed Sam was too. That's when people started coming in. After roll-call I moved my chair closer to Sam, and shared his stand. I looked up a few times to see Sara and Ashley trying not to giggle, they were both clarinet players and sat next to each other. I ignored them the rest of the time. After band was psychology for me and Ashley. On our way to class we stopped at my locker. "So what's up with you and Sam?" She asked. "Nothing," I replied quickly. "It didn't look like nothing," she said trying to get all the details from me. "Look, I'm not gonna say anything about it until I get another chance to talk to him about what happened in the band room." I said firmly. "Well looks like you won't have to wait too long, here he is now," she said starting to giggle. I looked over and sure enough there he was, right behind me. (Please leave comments on how I could improve and or leave suggestions for later on. Thanks)

As a hopeless romantic myself I can relate a lot to the main character, Laura. This book shows her growth in the aspect of love and life. We can all learn from this book.

You will hate the main character for at least the first 100 pages. I get she's a hopeless romantic but she comes across as dense and a hair away from wearing the men she falls for skin as a dress, at least at the start. After the fallout with the guy she thought was the one, super ridiculous , it gets a lot better. The ending was rushed but the book was a good read, but you will be yelling at laura to stop being blind for a few portions. Her and the guy she ends up with are adorable, and I wish we got a bit more with them together.
