Singles for the Summer (Mandy Baggot)

Tess Parks has made up her mind: love is not for her.
When it comes to dating she has one rule: after six weeks with a guy, she ends it. So when her heartbroken best friend invites her for a girly getaway in Corfu, Tess is sure she can stick to their pact to stay single for the summer.
But then she meets the gorgeous restaurateur Andras...
To keep his overbearing mother off his back, Tess agrees to pretend to date him. But as the two spend time together, Tess begins to realise that this fake relationship is starting to feel like the best one she has ever had.

It was no longer than a Snickers, the width of a KitKat, but it had a bright blue head and it was looking back at her like it wanted to get intimate. God, was this what happened when you pledged to stay single for the summer? The local wildlife smelled a loner from thirty paces?

❤️ I usually find it difficult to read comedies because they are never as funny as the book cover dictates. Well, this was a nice surprise.
To begin with, Tess is a funny character all by herself, but the banter between Tess and Andras is hilarious - not to mention the Greek Adonis that is Andras, I never thought it was possible to fall in love with a book character.
There is also a great cast of supporting characters providing lots of humour along the way: Sonya plays a large part in this book and helps Tess to see the beauty of Corfu while dealing with her own uncertain relationship and Hector definitely deserves a mention for managing to escape throughout the entire story without making it annoying or boring.
This is a perfect feel good summer read and a definite one to take on a holiday (maybe to Greece).
