Love You, Mean It

Jilly Gagnon

'Beautifully written, brilliant, and perfectly salty, Love You, Mean It is a total dream of a rom-com . . . Ellie and Theo's sizzling chemistry leaps off the page, and Jilly Gagnon's hilarious subversion of the amnesia trope only adds to the deep tenderness of their slow-burn romance. I adored every moment' LANA HARPER

''Delightfully tropey. . . Gagnon expertly combines humour and tenderness . . . This is a sweet confection' PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

From duelling delis to fake dating . . .

Ellie Greco loves her hometown and family-run deli, but she'd always thought she was meant for more exciting things than stocking the right tinned fish. Until a gourmet food department store moving in nearby threatens the very existence of Greco's Deli.

She pleads her case to Theo Taylor, scion of the property management firm that's about to put her out of business, but their meeting goes from bad (he's infuriating) to worse (no one expects the ceiling to fall on him).

With Theo out cold, Ellie panics, claims to be his fiancée . . . and almost passes out herself when amnesia means Theo actually believes her. The effects of the head injury soon wear off, yet Theo proposes that their "engagement" stick around. If they manage to convince enough people, they might succeed in ending the department store deal.

But when Theo's ex-fiancée reappears on the scene, Ellie is forced to decide between a blossoming friendship, her family legacy, and the burgeoning romance she frankly never asked for.
