He doesn't believe in happy endings.
She's lost her faith that they exist.
But could they find one together?
'The hottest book of the summer' Josie Silver, author of bestselling One Day in December
January is a hopeless romantic who narrates her life like she's the lead in a blockbuster movie.
Gus is a serious literary type who thinks true love is a fairy-tale.
But January and Gus have more in common than you'd think:
They're both broke.
They've got crippling writer's block.
And they need to write bestsellers before summer ends.
The result? A bet to swap genres see who gets published first.
The risk? In telling each other's stories, their worlds might be changed entirely...
Set over one sizzling summer, Beach Read is a witty love story that will make you laugh as much as cry, for fans of The Flat Share and Our Stop.
