An astonishingly relevant, funny and heartfelt romantic comedy about a universal experience that is yet to be explored in fiction: the emotional labour of dating men. Ever since she can remember, Aly has tried fixing things: her parents' marriage, colleagues' work problems, and all her friends' love lives. But when she bumps into her ex - who has gone from a living in his parents' basement to a happily-married success - she realises she' s been fixing her boyfriends, too . . . Her best friends call it ' The Aly Effect. ' When an in-joke with her friends at the office spirals out of control, Aly uses her talents to set up THE FIXER UPPER- an exclusive underground service for women who are tired of mothering, nagging and coaching their boyfriends through life. Before long, a mysterious celebrity client hires them for their biggest challenge yet: turning her boyfriend into the perfect fiance in three weeks. There' s just one catch . . . He' s Aly' s first love. And he' s not at all pleased to see her.
Lauren Forsythe is a pain in the arse. By day, she' s a content marketing manager, finding ways to get writing into people' s eagerly waiting eye-holes, and by night. . . well it' s the same thing, but with more wine. Lauren writes books about strong women, men with pretty eyelashes and friends that save your life. When she' s not writing, you can find her blogging about relationships, ranting about the patriarchy and ending her boxing workouts with a celebratory mini-roll or three. She firmly believes you can find confidence in the perfect bold lipstick and that all her problems would be solved if every dress had pockets. Lauren lives in Hertfordshire with her husband and a rescue cat that gets more pampered by the day. She' s currently growing a human and trying not to panic about it.
