    This is the fourteenth full length Lindsey Kelk novel. I've read each and every one... I also own each and every eBook and physical editions... Yup. I'm a slightly obsessive Lindsey fangirl.... FYI there are also two eBook only novellas....And this was great. I laughed a lot early on in the book. I got the ending I wanted and expected... But... I dunno... I liked it but I'm a bit *whelmed*.... You know rather than over- or underwhelmed.....

    How I adored this book! Initially, I thought it was going to be a love-hate romantic comedy, but after a while it became clear it was only a case of a grumpy, and not very socially skilled leading man: Dr. Samuel Page, the hottest historian you'll ever meet.With his obsession about history Sam reminded me a little of Ross and dinosaurs from Friends. You know, if Ross was tall, blond, blue-eyed, impossibly hot, and owned a cat. Yes, because Sam no...

    4 - "I happen to think you’re fairly close to perfect." Stars!It’s been a looooong time since I read a book by this author, I didn’t realize just how much so until I checked my ‘Read’ shelf. But like in life, it’s amazing how the years in Booklandia fly by and the amount of books released by said writer pile up before you get back to reading their words again."I’ve got this."I’ll admit the blurb for One in A Million was what drew ...

    5-never-wanted-this-book-to-end stars! Not wanting a book to end is the highest of honours I feel for a book, almost across all genres, maybe not a murder mystery but you get the drift! I HEART Lindsey's standalone books ;) , don't get me wrong, her series' are quite amazing too but to wrap up a heartfelt, funny story in one book is like eating a scrumptious meal. This book is her best standalone work, yet. I could name a million reasons why ...

    At first the story wasn't gripping my interest as much as many of Lindsey Kelk's books but I'm pleased I kept reading. Annie was a very well written character who I loved and Dr Samuel Page PhD (Sam to my friends) was likeable to. I enjoyed his love of Britney Spears and the times of them dancing are lovely. Samuel was very funny with Annie's family. I also loved the characters of Miranda and Brian and the business Annie and Miranda had created. ...

    In “One in a Million” we meet Annie Higgins who has just betted to turn a very social media unfriendly person into an Instagram influencer. The man in question, Dr Samuel Page, doesn’t know his luck yet and Annie must turn this innocent nerd into an über – cool – nerd with twenty thousand followers in only thirty days. Samuel is absolutely not interested but when Annie learns that his girlfriend has recently dumped him for being only i...

    This book had humor, romance, an adorable cat, and a swoon-worthy leading man! What's not to love about it? Honestly, it was a fun and cozy page-turner that I enjoyed reading in one sitting.It's not exactly love-hate. But our hottie male protagonist sure is a tough nut to crack with all his PhDs and "big professor" attitude. The book felt also very modern with all its digital marketing and social media references, which made old-fashioned Dr. Pag...
  • Simona
    I don't even know where to start this review, because this book is absolutely FABULOUS!!!Lindsey Kelk is one of these very talented writers, who creates a wonderful world around her characters, makes them lively and authentic and comes up with a gripping and exciting storyline. We follow Annie Higgins, who runs her own agency, dealing with social media. She has given up on men and love. Together with her best friend Miranda she successfully runs ...
  • Diem
    Look, I can no longer give an objective reading on any Lindsey Kelk book. I love Lindsey Kelk's writing too much — she is one of my keeper shelf authors forever and ever and ever. Dr Samuel Page PhD really snuck up on me, with his Hiddleston and Hemsworth brothers adjacent looks and his unwavering support of Annie. Hot Historian, innit mate? INNIT?I do still have the I Heart series to read — I'm saving them for a 'break glass in case of emerg...

    This book was just beyond perfect. Lindsey Kelk is my QUEEN. Full review to come a bit later when my sense of feelings have come back.
  • Rachel Gilbey
    I can see why this is being described as a modern day My Fair Lady, it really is turning someone from nothing on social media into a proper instagram influencer at least in terms of follower count. Of course the person being transformed is rather reluctant and its all come about as a result of a bet thanks to the overly competitive Annie Higgins. I was laughing early on when Annie was referred to as Professor Higgins by the person she made the be...

    5++++ Bloody brilliant My Fair Lady Stars! God, it's been so long since I read meself a Kelk book! I remember reading the first of the I Heart series and tingling about it for days after, as if I alone had discovered the best kept secret of the rom-com world (My delusions of grandeur weren't even slightly bothered by the fact that the series was already a huge best selling sensation. I convinced myself that I was somehow responsible for it's fa...

    Chuckled to myself on the train! Funny and charming, a great read.
  • Teresa
    This was a super cute, fun book. Billed as "My Fair Lady for the social media age" and it really loved up to that for me. It felt like a throwback to some fun late 90s/early 2000s books and movies too.

    If you are looking for a modern twist on a rom-com, then this could well be up your street. It's warm, genuinely funny and predictable in the best possible way. It is packed full of hilarious, confident women and I thought the focus on social media gave the book an original, up-to-date 'hook'. Reading this was like catching up with an old friend over our favourite feel-good films (I'm thinking My Fair Lady updated for the Set It Up generation). I...
  • Manda
    I only read the ebook a month ago but I couldn’t resist downloading the audiobook and enjoying that too. This is already in my list of most beloved/comforting romantic comedies.
  • Samantha
    This book was actually excellent. I picked it up thinking I was going to read a little rom com silly story, and while it definitely has its moments of that...and it's literally adorable, and relatable. I'd say overall it's a story of owning up to your faults. Choosing loyalty, and not romantically, but the type of love and trust you give your friends and even your family. It also speaks to the uphill battle that women in tech often find themselve...
  • Carrie Elks
    A really enjoyable feel-good story that left me with a big smile on my face.
  • Antonella
    This was very cute read. With My Fair Lady plot line and well known Lindsey Kelk writing I enjoy this as I hoped I would starting this. I read her books before and this one didn't disappoint.
  • Cressida McLaughlin
    This book is hilarious, clever, romantic, bursting with wonderful characters and basically brilliant in every way. Not a book to put down easily, I was totally gripped by the story and loved the heroine and hero. One of my top reads of 2018.
  • Stacey
    My first read by Lindsey Kelk and certainly not my last. I was at the airport the other day with low battery on my Kindle (rookie mistake not charging it before I left!) and decided to take a browse at what was on offer. They were outrageously expensive (14 euros for this one!) but I knew I just had to buy one otherwise I'd be bored on the flight (4 hours with 6 screaming children within 2 rows of me was NOT the one let me tell you) so I settled ...

    "Well, for the record, I happen to think you’re fairly close to perfect,” he said, blues eyes meeting my green ones. “Right now, off the shelf, as you are. No alterations need.” - One in a MillionWhen I returned from England a few weeks ago, I had this overwhelming need to relive my time there. I kept scanning through the pictures on my phone, smiling from ear to ear. I was so happy to finally say I made it to the place I dreamed about se...

    3.9/5 stars!!!!!!THIS BOOK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I read it in 2 days because I just couldn't put it down (even though I should have because I'm insanely busy and don't have time to read all day long...)One of my favourite tropes ever is the (generally) happy x serious and the happy one is persistent and you know you know :DAnnie is so funny and smart and I LOVE HER SO MUCH. I LOVE MIR AND BRIAN. THEY ARE THE GREATEST FRIENDS. I love how Taylor Swift is ...
  • Laura
    I absolutely adored this tribute to Pygmalion (My Fair Lady). It was a modern twist on a classic story. This time Professor Higgins (My Fair Lady) was not a professor at all but a social media expert - Annie Higgins. Eliza Doolittle was not a London flower girl but rather a fashion-challenged, long-haired and bearded, hipster, historian with a fascination for Irish generals - Samuel Page, PhD - or Sam. It was such a fun read with a satisfying, fe...

    This was a fantastic read to escape into. I'm not a huge social media fan so thought I would be more turned off by Annie's job, but her character and Samuel worked well together. Highly recommended if you are looking for a lovely read to escape into.
  • Rubamansoob
    The funniest and cutest book I’ve read in a very long time. Perfect if you’re having a book slump or in a bad mood because it’ll lighten your day!! I swear I was literally laughing out loud while reading this one and I would love to see it in a motion picture one day!!
  • Hannah Clarke (Love Books Actually)
    You can find my reviews on:’s up I am a massive fan of Lindsey Kelk! I was so eager to get my hands on her latest book ‘One in a Million’, even better I got to purchase it on the paperback publication day and meet her in person courtesy of Waterstones along with Giovanna Fletcher and Paige Toon! (Yay!) It was a fun evening of book chat and Lindsey as always is so nice to meet… Even when I was a...
