‘What if you found The One, then lost him again?

Or not so much lost him as became the neurotic, needy girlfriend from hell. The girl who tried to make him choose between her and his job, and got seriously paranoid about his relationship with his best female friend…

Zoe knows she doesn’t deserve another chance with David. But if there’s the tiniest possibility of making things right, she’ll snatch it. Even if it means breaking the laws of physics to do so…’

This is the first book I’ve read my Nicola and the synopsis instantly drew me in making it hard to say no to. I’m so pleased I decided to read it because it was pretty impossible to not enjoy.

Zoe has come out of a relationship with surgeon David and is feeling pretty cut up about it. For Zoe, David is the one. She feels that her behaviour within the relationship was unreasonable and she came across possibly too needy. If only she could get him back and show him that she could be the perfect girlfriend…

Well that chance comes and in the most unlikeliest ways… Time Travel…

Zoe finds herself one morning waking up in David’s apartment six months earlier than she went to bed in her own flat. Her and David are back together, so now is her chance to be the girlfriend he wants.

This is also Zoe’s chance to prove herself at work, she wants to work in fashion and only working in the tills at twenty-seven isn’t satisfying enough. So with her knowledge on all the trends that are hot and not in the next six months is going to help her greatly.

Wo with a second chance at the tip of her fingers can Zoe get the happier ending she is after?

Zoe was such a fun character and you are continually routing for her to realise that maybe she didn’t need to change for David to accept her. I loved her habits that she felt she needed to hide from David, like the trashy tv she watched.

Jenny, David’s childhood friend was the perfect villain within the book, her snide comments and bitchy nature had me wanting to climb in the book and throttle her.

As for David, he was the perfect gentleman. Only he was wasn’t the perfect boyfriend, with his long and tiring hours he often had to let Nicola down. He also seemed rather happy to turn a blind eye to the insanely jealous Jenny.

Nicola’s writing was superb and drew you in quickly. She wrote seamlessly so the past and present never left you feeling confused at any point.

With fun, drama and a sprinkling of love this story is sure to capture the heart of many.

Nicola is a author I will be checking out again and again.

You can get a copy of If I Could Turn Back Time in Paperback and Kindle.
