The funny, clever, deeply romantic, sinfully sexy, devastatingly heartbreaking, perfectly uplifting book of your dreams. Sarra Manning is the absolute Queen of funny, heartfelt, deeply emotional romances, and The Man of Her Dreams is romcom perfection

I absolutely, completely, entirely and wholly adored The Man of Her Dreams. I didn't think Sarra's writing could get any better . . . but she has somehow surpassed herself. It manages to be romantic, relatable and heartfelt, while also being such an compelling, intriguing story - I couldn't put it down. I'll be thinking about this special book for a long time to come, and recommending it to everyone I know.

Smart, funny, audacious, and dazzlingly romantic. The Man of Her Dreams is an utterly ingenious romcom with the breathless page-turning quality of a thriller. I could not put it down. Sarra Manning just gets better and better.
