REVIEW: Talk to Me by Jules Wake

Jules Wake - Talk to Me

Contemporary romance, Talk to Me by Jules Wake, has a lot going for it. I really liked the writing style, it’s easy reading with likeable characters, and it’s a lot of fun.

Sadly, its mistaken identity made this book fall…

It was a match that began perfectly before slowly spiralling downward as the honeymoon period wore off and both realised they weren’t so well suited after all. Now it is their fifth wedding…
