Everyone wants that special someone….
Annie Higgins has one goal this year: to get her tiny business off the ground. But – infuriated by the advertising agency across the hall making fun of her job – Annie is goaded into accepting their crazy challenge: to make a random stranger Instagram-famous in just thirty days.
And even when they choose Dr Samuel Page PhD, historian and hater of social media, as her target, Annie’s determined to win the bet – whether Sam likes it or not.
But getting to know Sam means getting to know more about herself. And before the thirty days are out, Annie has to make a decision about what’s really important…
Funny, real and heart-meltingly romantic, Annie and Sam’s story is My Fair Lady for the social media age – and the perfect feel-good read.
One of my favourite authors, Lindsey Kelk can do no wrong in my eyes. I know that when I don’t know what to read I can pick up something by Lindsey and be gripped in just a few pages.
One in a Million followed the trend of Lindsey’s usual style of fun, easy reading Chick lit that you find yourself easily engrossed and eager to turn the pages.
Annie is a hard working, dedicated young woman who with the help of her best friend is starting to build her own company in a fashionable office block that costs the earth each month in rent. Being a social media guru they help to set people up with their social media presence, sort of like a management team but for social media. One of the other people in the office space bets them they cannot turn someone famous in a month, the person being the next one to walk into the coffee shop. When the next person that comes in turns out to be Dr. Samuel Page Annie begins to wonder if she has bitten off more than she can chew.
As Annie and Sam begin to get to know each other, they both begin to question themselves and their current lifestyles as well as each other. Annie slowly begins to see that life isn’t all about social media.
I found the characters to be very like able which is surprising as usually there is one or 2 of them that you hate. I did feel that the story was very predictable, I could sort of see where the ending was headed from a few chapters in but I did still really enjoy the story and getting to know both Annie and Sam. As always with Lindsey’s books there are a huge number of side characters that you can rely on to be strong minded, independent and fiercely awesome at being best friends (Every real life female needs one of Lindsey’s best friends).
The book was a very easy read and I couldn’t stop turning the pages until the very end. If you want something to lose yourself in with an element of comedy as well as romance then One in a Million is the book for you.
