Evie’s Little Black Book
Is hunting down every man you’ve kissed the answer to finding Mr Right?
When Evie is invited to the wedding of the guy she’d fancied throughout her teens, it’s the final straw. What’s wrong with her and why can’t she keep a man?
In between consoling herself with ice cream and chocolate, and sobbing her heart out to her cousin Chamaine, Evie has a brainwave – and it all centres around her ‘little black book’ (well, more floral patterned notebook really) – which contains the details of every man she’s ever kissed or dated. Perhaps the cure for her disastrous love life has been nestled within its pages all along …
Does Evie’s little black book really hold the answers, or will she learn that exes are exes for a reason?

She has previously worked as a Criminology researcher at a university in Leicester, as a Development Worker with various charities and even pulled a few pints in her time.
In 2015 she was struck down by Labrynthitis, which left her feeling dizzy and virtually housebound. She has since been diagnosed with ME. Reading has allowed Hannah to escape from the reality of feeling ill. She read upwards of three hundred books during the first year of her illness.

I really liked this book. It made me think back to my dating days and I would not want to go back to see the guys that I had a crush on or had any kind of relationship with. Not that they were bad, but because I wouldn’t want to be reminded of how I viewed relationships back then. I am a mature woman who has been married for almost 34 years with three grown children and two beautiful grandchildren, and I have to say that I don’t have regrets for my past as I know that it is what shaped me to be the woman I am today.
The instant chemistry between Jake and Evie is a great start to a wonderful story and the fact that she doesn’t even stop to think before she jumps in to help Jake out is a testament to her character and that her past relationship fails were because of her character. I agree with Charmaine that she just hadn’t found the right guy yet that fit with her. This was a cute story but also a story that had me thinking about what I would have done, would I go back and review the past relationships or would I just go on and live my life. I really believe that I would not go back. The past is the past for a reason and life is too short to question all of our decisions. It help Evie to regain her confidence though and I think that it also opened her eyes to a lot of what life could have been for her.
I give this story a 4 star review and highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a fun read about relationships and finding your true self worth.
