The Plus One (The Plus One #1) by Natasha West


A light romcom aiming to entertain without any convoluted angst and succeeding in this goal.

Charlie Black is a laidback physical trainer and a black sheep in her family for not being able to hold on to a relationship. Her sister, Maddie, is getting married and in a fit of bravado at a family lunch, she declares she’s found THE ONE, Lucy, who will be her plus one at the wedding. She gets back from lunch and finds herself being dumped by Lucy who says they have absolutely nothing in common. Too uncomfortable with announcing her once-again single status, she goes to Rent-A-Date to find a fake Lucy. Charlie’s ‘date’ turns out to be Amy Sinclair, the queen of high school, who was also the first girl Charlie had sex with and the first girl who broke Charlie’s heart. Amy is the most popular actress in the Rent-A-Date pool because she is gorgeous, intelligent, professional, articulate and charismatic. The date turns out more ‘interesting’ than bargained for.

We didn’t particularly like Charlie (especially with the chip on her shoulder about Maddie’s best friend, Paige) but really like Amy. On the whole this was an enjoyable book (in spite of some misused words and a really big slip-up when Maddie refers to Amy as Amy instead of Lucy).

Recommended for a light, flighty read.
