    Simon is still grieving for his partner Alice who died a few years ago His best friend Will wants him to move on with his life rather than continue to mope around believing that no woman could ever live up to Alice Will offers to take Simon to a new restaurant but he’s actually not going he’s set him up on a blind dateLisa hasn’t had the best experience with men and her last partner has made her realise that she needs to change the type she goes for Her best friend Jess sets her up on a blind date at a fancy new restaurant as part of a newspaper column she runs in the GazetteThe date between Simon and Lisa doesn’t start well when Lisa walks out in front of Simon’s car and both won’t back down as to who was at fault Moving on to the restaurant and they soon realise that they have been paired with one another But with nothing in common Lisa likes tea Simon prefers coffee Lisa likes astrology and Simon thinks it’s childish to believe in your star sign the two part company and hope to put the experience behind them However forgetting about one another isn’t that simpleI adore Matt Dunn’s books They are full of funny moments and wonderful characters Then I Met You is no exception The book is totally predictable but isn’t all Rom Coms? If you want unpredictable I’d suggest reading a mystery or a thriller bookSimon was such a lovable character Yes he moaned a lot and thought little of himself but this was a man who was still grieving for the love of his life He knew in his heart that he needed to move on with his life but he also didn’t want to forget about Alice nor replace herLisa is a very headstrong woman she doesn’t like others doing things for her She wants to be an independent woman whilst at the same time be in a relationship trouble is she seems to go for bad boy after bad boy which causes her one heart ache after anotherThe plot was enjoyable there were plenty of humorous moments You know what the story is building up to yet I enjoyed the wait and watching these two people who seem to have an instant dislike for one another realise that they might actually be good for one anotherThe book is told in the third person and from dual POV so we get to see both sides of the story I’m not always a fan of dual POV or multiple but this worked well and I was never left confusedThe book is entertaining and satisfying and I read it in just two sittings as once I’d started reading I didn’t want to stop

    From my Updates This was rollicking on and I was thoroughly enjoying Simon and Lisa A delightfully frothy story until one word at the 16% mark which changed the whole tone of the story so far This promises to be WONDERFULpleasepleaseplease dont disappoint meAnd I'm delighted to say that it didn't disappoint apart from the fact that the story ended I would have loved to have read This is a truly lovely story funny tender honest romantic and heart wrenching in places There's only one thing wring with it in my opinion the cover gives the impression of a much 'frothy' story the sort that's touted as 'a laugh out loud comedy' which I usually avoid like the plague because often than not they are cringingly awful and full of 'lavatory humourThis is just a lovely lovely story with two wonderful believable characters I fell in love with Simon right from the start It was such a relief to read about a man who wasn't perfect who was nervous and uneasy and shy and yet who was genuinely decentI wish authors wrote books as lovely as this

    Lisa doesn't have the best track record with dating and seems to be attracted to all the wrong guys Despite her poor luck she still believes fate has someone wonderful in store for her and maintains hope Simon has found the love of his life and subseuently lost her He's just getting by and would prefer his friends didn't meddle in his life But of course his friend Will can't help himself and tricks Simon into meeting Lisa for a blind date courtesy of the local newspaper Will these two hit it off or be yet another failure in the column's mismatches?Firstly I may be a bit biased because I've read nearly everything Matt Dunn has written and always snag his new releases I adore his wit and humor and he's always been one of my favorite authors While this is not my favorite of his mostly because I really didn't care for Lisa I still really enjoyed it It was hilarious awkward and charming much like life itself Plus there were some very hopeful and also poignant overtones in this that I vastly appreciated I'd say Matt hasn't let me down yet and I'll keep dutifully reading his workI voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book All thoughts and opinions are my own

    This is the first book I’ve read by Matt Dunn and I was not disappointed The story only spans over a couple of days but it didn’t feel like it was going to slowly at all All the way through I was gripped by the detail and what was going to happen I loved this story and how realistic and raw it is The language pace and delivery were just right for me I would recommend this book and I am 100% on the hunt for books by Matt

    #ThenImetYou #NetGalleyI have been thinking that my diet of women's fiction written by women from diverse backgrounds could possibly use some testosterone? So I was happy to be approved to read this book from Netgalley ThanksThis book has a uick easy pace which you can read uickly as I did The story is about Lisa and Simon who are set up on a blind date by their friends which is a nightmare That never ends In spite of the characters discomfort it's a funny light read It's not all fluff though I like how the author pays some attention to developing characters so that you hear about their flaws but then you also see them manifest on the date And possibly grow?? Not telling no spoilers Now when I say flaws I really just mean Lisa At times I felt like Lisa was based on a crazy ex of the author portraying her as intense bossy and inattentive Other times she just seemed a little dumb walking into traffic her whole trip to Mexico tattoo etc Simon on the other hand is shy smart gentlemanly and kind All The Time The worst of him is that he's just SO honest 1millioneyerolls that he really thinks it would be great to get feedback from an ex not his on what's wrong with Lisa 🙄🤯🤬 There are many moments of classic comedic setups coincidences mistaken identity and misunderstandings for days It keeps the story moving but a healthy suspension of disbelief is reuired I enjoyed the description of the city and felt like the setting is important to this author I felt closer to the story picturing the town

    Then I Met You by Matt Dunn is a contemporary love story that unfolds over the course of a single weekend I always leap at the chance to read a romance that is told from the male perspective as this genre seems to be dominated by the female voiceSimon has lost the love of his life and is uninterested in throwing himself back into the dating scene He reluctantly agrees to join the charismatic and outspoken Lisa for a single drink as part of a blind date feature for the local paper Both Simon and Lisa are intriguing characters each bringing their significant emotional baggage along with them to the meeting and their bantering is both witty and delightfully snarkyThis is a fun read that will have you smiling and uite possibly relating to this run through the gauntlet of modern love Although it is somewhat predictable this is an enjoyable read that is worth a lookMany thanks to NetGalley Publishing UK and Lake Union Publishing for this ARC

    But life isn't just a moment It's made up of a past A future It's foreverA super fun and sweet romantic comedy Doomed to be a disaster of a blind date at first the two characters show us that nothing comes as expected Lisa can be annoying at times but I really liked how her character developed the she spent time with Simon I enjoyed the alternating POVs and how they provided a little depth and insight on the characters The way the story built up and picked up its pace once they get to know each other was well done There's a lot of back and forth misunderstandings and misfortunes but all of those issues unfolded themselves in a very entertaining way without ever being too much This is a super uick and easy read one simply flies through it It's charming and hilarious at times gives hope and touches respectfully on the people in the book and their problems and burdens with witty dialogues and great humor It's possible to do everything right and still lose That's not a weakness It's lifeI received an advance digital copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

    Then I Met You by Matt Dunn a four star read you won’t want to miss This has such great characters that you won’t be able to stop yourself feeling for them and caring for them that’s why I think Matt Dunn is a great writer he writes people you can identify with and understand so much Throw in some funny funny stories and you have a great read My only issue was that it dragged a little in a couple of points but overall a very well thought out and honestly funny read

    Matt Dunn has an amazing knack of being able to write a full length book about a certain event or day and be so wonderfully engaging you don't even realise until you are half way through that not huge amounts of time pass in the book In this instance we follow a blind date between Simon and Lisa who really don't hit it off initially in fact i could't help but laugh after their first encounterFrom there were are treated to both sides of the story with their best friends for moral support as we see what could be described as the longest blind date in history There are arguments awkward moments times when the pair hate each other and we are also given insight into their past relationships to build a fuller picture It is such a wonderfully engaging writing style that hooks you in and I found myself hoping for for a happy outcome of this date of many coincidences and moments where you wonder if either character may see what is in front of their eyesThank you to Lake Union Publishing and Netgalley for this copy which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily
