Our Review

“I miss you so much it hurts right here,” he said candidly, tapping the centre of his chest. I reached across the table to take his hand into mine. “I have a matching hurt in the exact same spot.”

After a couple of heavy reads, we were in the mood for something lighter, and what better way to answer that call, than with a witty, warm, captivating, and sexy read by L.H. Cosway. We couldn’t wait to experience lots of giggles, emotion, and passion, with characters who would steal our hearts. Sidequest for Love was the perfect read for our mood, and once again our hearts have been warmed with relatable characters in this wonderfully funny, sweet slow-burn friends to lovers.

“I think it’s wonderful how you see the world. You don’t dismiss people because of their imperfections. In fact, you seem to enjoy people far more because they’re imperfect.”

SideQuest for Love is a standalone spinoff from the Running on Air Series, where we meet twenty-five-year-old Afric O’Connor, a popular gamer originally from Dublin, now living in London. Afric is one of eight siblings and had to learn to stand up for herself. She tells it as it is, she’s quirky, funny, and lacks a filter. And we couldn’t love her more!

They say opposites attract, and that was the case with Afric and thirty-year-old Neil Durant. The first meeting between Afric and Neil was anything but successful, as they rubbed each other up the wrong way. Neil was measured and ordered, Afric was carefree and chaotic, and fate had other ideas.

“I think we often avoid those who aren’t the same as us, but if we just gave those people a chance, we’d realise how inconsequential the differences are in comparison to you much they can improve our lives.”

Neil is an assistant in the hugely popular reality show Running on Air and what a beautiful character he was. It’s so rare to find a male love interest like Neil. A quiet, somewhat insecure family-orientated man with such a sweet and tender heart. This is the sort of character L H Cosway writes so perfectly, and we adored him! Though, Neil’s alpha side could definitely rear its head when required. He’s perfectly described as a sexy Clark Kent, and that’s just how we imagined him!

As Afric and Neil’s friendship grows, they discover a shared love of period drama TV (though Neil is the romantic in this friendship), and a whole lot of witty banter ensues – their text messaging was a hoot! We loved the way their friendship so beautifully and slowly developed.

‘There was magic to this woman. The more I got to know her, the more evident it became. She lived in her own world, made up her own rules, and I was almost envious of her.’

L H Cosway is one of the most wonderful storytellers. Her books are so warm and engaging with an underlying message in each one. In Sidequest for Love, it’s about acceptance and difference. About rooting for the underdog, about seeing the substance underneath the gloss, and we LOVED IT!

“Let me be the person in your corner, Neil.”

Now…Afric’s brother Billy MUST get a story! We are already surmising his love interest. If we’re right, then we are positively giddy with excitement over that possibility, and will eagerly be awaiting that story!





Being an avid online gamer, Afric O’ Connor loves a challenge. Helping Neil Durant reveal himself to the girl he’s been catfishing makes for the perfect sidequest. Besides, it’s not like she isn’t getting something in return. Neil has a head for numbers and Afric’s finances are a mess. It’s the perfect exchange. She assists him with his love life, and he sorts out her accounts.

As they spend more time together, the arrangement becomes less simple. Afric soon realises that the girl Neil’s been trying so hard to win over might not deserve him. And the buttoned up, bespectacled personal assistant she once considered a sidequest has somehow become her main objective.

Why can’t you? He’d thrown that bomb into her world. Why can’t you have what you want? Why can’t you be who you want to be? Why can’t you? With them she finally could. And she was going to be so very good at it.’

GREEN JEWEL (The Painted Daisies #2) by LJ EVANS

‘Heartache and sorrow hung over her so deep it bled through every vein.’


“Princess, when I love someone, it’s with my soul. It’s a full commitment. It’s a relationship that will grow, evolve, and change to fit us. I won’t ever stop trying to be the best man I can be. I won’t give up on us, through thick and thin.”


“Just don’t fall in love with me,” I teased. “Kay.” He said.


‘Sometimes passion was a whisper, other times a roar. This time? It was a storm.’
