Review: Alex, Approximately by Jenn Bennett

Publication Date: April 1st 2017
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Pages: 388 pages

Bailey “Mink” Rydell has met the boy of her dreams. They share a love of films and talk all day – Alex is perfect. Well, apart from the fact that they’ve never actually met . . . and neither of them knows the other’s real name. 
When Bailey moves to sunny California to live with her dad, who happens to live in the same town as Alex, she decides to track him down. But finding someone based on online conversations alone proves harder than Bailey thought, and with her irritating but charismatic (and potentially attractive?) colleague Porter Roth distracting her at every turn, will she ever get to meet the mysterious Alex? 

I positively adored “Night Owls” (or “The Anatomical Shape of a Heart” if you’re in America) and as soon as I realised there was another offering from Jenn Bennett on the shelves, I didn’t hesitate to pick it up.

It was exactly what I expected, and exactly what I’d hoped for – a light, romantic story with whip smart dialogue and a swoon-worthy romance at its heart. The only dampener was that you could see the “twist” coming a mile off, but so long as you don’t mind knowing roughly where the story is going, it doesn’t detract from it at all.

If you’re a fan of light fluff filled romance that will definitely give you butterflies, or some classic rom coms (think “You’ve got Mail”) then this is a definite must read. Perfect for whiling away a few hours, and to give you that swooping feeling of that first epic love, this is one I know I’ll be coming back to time and time again.
