Dumped Actually by Nick Spalding

Title: Dumped Actually
Author: Nick Spalding
 Publication Date: July 2019
When Ollie Sweet is very publicly dumped by ‘The One’, his seemingly perfect world dissolves into misery, self-pity, and a bizarre rooftop meeting with a suicidal man in flip-flops. While most would seek out the support of loved ones at such a torrid time, natural-born journalist Ollie asks the subscribers of his website: how did they get over their failed relationships?

When Ollie follows some of their more extreme advice, chaos inevitably ensues, including accidentally exposing himself to some unsuspecting wildlife, jumping out of a perfectly serviceable aeroplane, and suffering from an extremely painful bottom, courtesy of a maniacal Scotsman.

Of course, all of this goes down a storm with his online following, and Ollie soon finds himself the centre of everyone’s attention – whether he likes it or not!

With his eclectic collection of supporters to guide him, can Ollie mend his broken heart, heal his broken bottom, and learn to find happiness again?
My first book from this author. And all I can say is it was a very enjoyable read. The Author did a great job in describing the very normal circumtances that accompanies a break up. What I also love about the story was it was totally relatable to all people who had experience this kind of heartache after breakup. What doesn't appeal on me about this book is the main character. I find him annoying, and at times immature.

I usually stay out with kind of rom-com stories, and I can still say that am actually still not on it. But then, I like the ending. And that says something. The story was entertaining to read. 

Thank You @times.reads for providing me a complimentary copy of this book.
