When Lexi’s sports-mad boyfriend, Will, bails on her friend’s wedding because of food poisoning but is then spotted at a soccer match, she decides to get mad, and then get even. Without telling Will that his ruse is up, she hatches several sneaky sabotage missions to ensure he misses future sporting events. The aspiring writer also starts blogging about her acts of revenge as a sports widow. Bell knocks it out of the park with this cleverly plotted story. With a totally recognisable relationship at its heart, plenty of humour as well as a plot that keeps readers guessing, this is a cute and enjoyable story, albeit a wee bit slow at the end. The perfect book to lose yourself in while your man’s watching a game.
