The Couple

Thrilled to join this blog tour. I am a huge fan of this author. Thank you to Zaffre books for the gifted advanced copy.

Millie is a perfectionist. She’s happy, she’s successful – and, with a great support network of friends and family (and a very grumpy cat) around her, she’s never lonely. She has her dream job at a big tech firm and is on track to become the company’s youngest ever Innovation Director. The last thing she needs is romance messing up her perfectly organised world.

Besides, normal people just don’t have romantic relationships. Everyone knows that being in a couple is a bit . . . well, odd. Sure, everybody has that one coupled-up friend who messes up the numbers at dinner parties, but it’s a bit eccentric. You know, like having a pet snake or living off the grid. Why rely on another person for your own happiness? Why risk the humiliation of unrequited love or the agony of a break-up when you can do everything yourself? No, Millie is perfectly happy with her conventional single life.

So when Millie lands a new project at work, launching a pill that stops you falling in love, it seems like the opportunity of a lifetime. That is, until she starts working with Ben. He’s charming and funny, and Millie feels an instant connection with him. Is this the spark that science and society are trying to suppress?

Will Millie sacrifice everything she believes in for love?

Oh what an absolutely amazing masterpiece of a book! I have adored this. I knew I had to read it when I saw the cover reveal- I adored Acton’s previous book. This is definitely my favourite though.

Millie and Ben have been superb characters. I have loved the journey with them and their chemistry has been evident since the beginning. I have loved the concept of this one. It’s reminded me of Delirium by Lauren Oliver with the cure for falling in love.

This has been completely unlike any other book in a similar genre. The cover is intriguing and inviting. Acton writes in a way that pulls you into the pages and makes it impossible to leave the characters.

I have devoured this book in one sitting. I have been completely pulled in and unwilling to return to reality until I had devoured every last word of this masterpiece. I am definitely not disappointed. Acton has created a truly wonderful novel with characters I want to be friends with.

I have absolutely nothing negative I can say about this book. It is definitely one to get on the TBR and I am already eagerly anticipating more from this fantastic author.

Happy reading,
