On July 8th, Pippa Grant’s new book The Grumpy Player Next Door comes out. I had to reread Real Fake Love. I mean, it’s Luca and Henri. It was a must.

Real Fake Love by Pippa Grant quote

Henrietta Bacon, more affectionately known as Henri, is a romance novelist who falls in love at the drop of a hat. Seriously, the woman has planned five weddings and none of them have come off. Each one has been cancelled in some way. What she needs is someone to teach her how to not fall in love. What she needs is Luca.

Brief Summary (while trying not to give everything away)

In Real Fake Love, Henri’s fiance tells her that he can’t go through with the wedding because he has feelings for Luca’s mom. Luca offers to get Henri a drink without realizing that she’s allergic to alcohol. While the two might have thought that they wouldn’t see each other again, well, that doesn’t happen.

What happens when someone asks another someone how not to fall in love when that other someone’s grandmother is there to put The EYE on them? Want to know what all happens? Read the book to find out! I mean you have to read just to find out about TikTok Nonna.


As with each of Pippa Grant’s books, Real Fake Love should only be read while not drinking (because you will spit out your drink) and definitely not in a library as you will bust out laughing. Don’t get in trouble with the librarians! If you like a sitcom, but in book form, this is the perfect book for you. If you like high humor, this is the book for you. Trust me, all of us need a little light hearted fun right now and this delivers. This one is on Kindle Unlimited and you should run to read it!

My plan for 2021 is to write a blog post for each book I read. Last year, I read 150 books. While I’ve read 148, I’m very far behind on my blog posts so evidently I need to get cracking on that.
