The Man Of Her Dreams by Sarra Manning #TheManofherDream @sarramanning @HodderBooks #Competition #BookReview #Giveaway #Prize


Is he too good to be true?

Meet Theo. Handsome, sexy, funny. kind. And he can cook.

He's literally the man of Esme's dreams. But Esme's sensible enough to know that you can't just manifest your perfect boyfriend then have him turn up on your doorstep.

Or can you?

The Man of Her Dreams by Sarra Manning was published in hardback on 9 November 2023 by Hodder. My thanks to the publisher who sent my copy for review.

This review was originally published in S Magazine - 12 November 2023

On the surface, Esme's life is a success. She has a great job as a copywriter, owns her own home and has plenty of friends. But she's struggling to come to terms with her failed marriage and she often escapes by disappearing into an imaginary world containing her perfect man. 

After the hen night from hell, which involved crystals, mood boards and too much alcohol, Esme collides with a cyclist and suffers a nasty bump to her head. 

Whisked off to A&E, she meets fellow patient Theo. From his job to his accent, he's everything she pictured in her daydreams. Did the power of her desire manifest him into being?

Esme and Theo start dating and he appears to be the perfect man. He makes sure she takes her painkillers, comforts her when he awful sister Allegra shouts at her and supports her through her often manic life. Most important of all, she can always count on him to be there when she needs him most. 

But when Esme returns to the hospital to have her stitches taken out, the consultant drops a bombshell that turns everything she thought she knew about Theo on its head.

But even if Theo isn't the man she thought he was, perhaps that's not such a bad thing?

Saucy, funny and emotional, this is a feel-good romance with fabulous characters and a juicy twist.
