Only When It’s Love: Holding Out For Mr Right
Alex is tired of being single. After years of disastrous hook-ups and relationships that lead to the bedroom but nowhere else, Alex is convinced she’ll never find her Mr Right. Then her newly married friend Stacey recommends what worked for her: a self-help book that guarantees Alex will find true love in just seven steps. Sounds simple, right?
Except Alex soon discovers that each step is more difficult than the last, and one of the rules involves dating, but not sleeping with a guy for six months. Absolutely no intimate contact whatsoever. Zero. Nada. Rien. A big challenge for Alex, who has never been one to hold back from jumping straight into the sack, hoping it will help a man fall for her.
Will any guys be willing to wait? Will Alex find her Mr Right? And if she does, will she be strong enough to resist temptation and hold out for true love?
Join Alex on her roller coaster romantic journey as she tries to cope with the emotional and physical ups and downs of dating whilst following a lengthy list of rigid rules.
Only When It’s Love is a fun, feel-good, romantic comedy by British author Olivia Spring, about self-acceptance, determination, love and the challenge of finding the one.
The sequel, When’s The Wedding? will be published on 25th March 2021.

I want to start this post off by saying how incredibly excited I am to be a part of this book birthday blog tour!. As soon as I read the description for this book, It sounded like the exact kind of book I would fall in love with, and I am so happy to say that it did not disappoint!.
This story follows the life of Alex, who, after years of jumping from one bad relationship to the next has well and truly had enough. When she shares her thoughts with her newly married friend Stacey, who quickly suggests the book that worked wonders for her own love life. Willing to give anything a try, Alex reads the self help book cover to cover, many times over and can’t quite believe she is expected to go for 6 months without any bedroom antics whilst she searches for Mr Right.
This book was an absolute dream to read from the very first page. The author has such a truly unique, witty writing style that had me hooked until the very end. It is so refreshing to find an author who so perfectly combines both romance and humour in a way that has you laughing out loud one moment, to feeling so incredibly warm and fuzzy inside!.
The characters were wonderful and so perfectly brought to life by Olivia. I absolutely adored Alex and all of her little quirks, and as the story progressed and we got to know her on a deeper level she soon began to feel like a friend. Accompanied by a cast of intriguing and equally entertaining characters, this book well and truly captivates you.
Beautifully written, humorous and heart warming all at once. It is impossible not to fall in love with this wonderful book!
