Am I Allergic to Men?

‘OMG!!!! I CANNOT REMEMBER THE LAST TIME I LAUGHED SO MUCH!!! What an absolutely page-turning, refreshing, laugh-a minute-read!!!!… I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVED this… Absolutely devoured it… I genuinely couldn't recommend this book any more!!!!’ Bookworm86, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Could things get any worse?! I lost my memory, I’m so single I’ve basically got an allergy to men, and my own cat despises me. ‘Lucy! If you can hear me, squeeze my hand!’ That’s the first thing I hear when I wake up in hospital. Then my sister drops a bombshell: I’ve been in a coma. It gets worse. In my head, it’s 2009 and I’m seventeen. Somehow, I need to remember the last decade… Plan A: Track down my exes. Highlights include a one-night stand with someone in a Batman costume, and balcony sex that gave the neighbours a nervous breakdown. Plan B: Get flirty. Lowlights include a fling with someone hairier than a yeti. Plan C: Figure out why I have more exes than underwear. Am I allergic to men? As I piece together my past, I find a mysterious note: ‘Oscar, 9th February’. But I have no idea who Oscar is… Determined to find out, I uncover a secret I’ve been hiding from everyone. When the truth comes out, will my memory return? Will I get my life back? Will I ever cure my singledom? And how can I make my cat stop hating me?! You’ll laugh so much your abs ache! The perfect page-turner for fans of Sophie Kinsella, Lindsey Kelk and TV shows like Schitt’s Creek. Readers love Am I Allergic to Men?: ‘I LOVE LOVE LOVE this! I could not put it down.

Lucy shows us her vulnerable side as she struggles to get her memory back. What we find is that she is courageous, she’s a free spirit, she pulverizes bullies and she lives life to the fullest. She’s inappropriate but hilarious. She’s a talented actor, dancer, and the best Aunty ever. But most of all she would lay down her life for her family as they would do for her. After all, who clashes and crashes better than the incredible Callaghan family? The whole slide armageddon at the park is priceless. And what says love more than a mum replacing all of her adult daughters’ ratty knickers. LOL moments galore!!!!

I absolutely adore this insightful and memorable series. If you love heartwarming family dynamics and hilarious hijinks, please pick up this wonderful series. It won’t disappoint.
