BLOG TOUR - P. S. I Hate You


Relationship: Hanging by a thread.

Sex life: Dead on arrival.
Alcohol: Essential.

It’s normal to hate the man of your dreams, right?

Once upon a time, 
Abbie and Matt had swoon-worthy mini breaks in Paris, and Abbie would cook him steak wearing nothing but an apron and high heels. These days, they’re experiencing the longest dry spell on record… And Abbie is keeping a very big secret.

But she’s not ready to give up. Nobody knows Abbie like Matt does, and it helps that he’s tall, dark and handsome, with hazel eyes and dimples to die for.

Determined to reignite the romance, Abbie initiates 
Operation Memory Lane and recreates their happiest memories. Maybe breakfast in bed, sexy lingerie, dirty martinis and a romantic weekend in the countryside will bring back Abbie’s butterflies and make her giddy with happiness…

But revisiting the past is a risky business, and secrets always come out in the end. Will the truth ruin their second chance at love?

This totally addictive second-chance romance will give you All. The. Feels! Perfect for fans of Emily Henry, Sophie Kinsella and Beth O’Leary.

Title:   P. S. I Hate You
Author:  Sophie Ranald

Genre:   Romance
Format:  Kindle ARC

Abbie and Matt have been together for twenty years, married for nine. Marriage has been good, but they both seem to be facing a brick wall in their relationship. While they do love one another they seem to no longer be in love. How can they get that loving feeling back? How about Operation Memory Lane, going back and re-creating memories that set the foundation for their relationship?

While they are navigating these waters, they do have some very serious issues that they are facing, and it is these issues that might break the tenuous hold they have on their marriage. This second chance romance is different than most books that use this trope since the couple is married. While they are looking for the secret to bring their joy back into their marriage, the story shifts back and forth to special moments in their marriage.

The title and description did not connect with me. In fact, both were misleading enough to keep me looking for something that I never found in this book. Instead, Abbie and Matt face very difficult challenges, even to the point where they may never find their connection again. Also, this book dealt with two very serious subjects that gave this book a lot of levity. In many ways this was a relatable read for couples with long relationships. It was interesting see how Abbie and Matt worked to find that sizzle although everything was from Abbie’s point of view. 

Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.


Sophie Ranald is the youngest of five sisters. She was born in Zimbabwe and lived in South Africa until an acute case of itchy feet brought her to London in her mid-20s. As an editor for a customer publishing agency, Sophie developed her fiction-writing skills describing holidays to places she'd never visited. In 2011, she decided to disregard all the good advice given to aspiring novelists and attempt to write full-time. After one false start, It Would Be Wrong to Steal My Sister's Boyfriend (Wouldn't It?) seemed to write itself, and six more novels have followed. Sophie also writes for magazines and online about food, fashion, finance and fitness. She lives in south-east London with her amazing partner Hopi and their two adorable cats.
