Warm, witty and thought-provoking * Abbie Greaves author of The Silent Treatment *
I inhaled the book in less than twenty-four hours. Helly has absolutely smashed it once again. The Couple is funny, smart and thought-provoking, and so clever in the way it turns so many of our assumptions about love and relationships on their head * Freya Sampson *
So clever, so thought-provoking, I loved it * Sophie Cousens *
The Couple is a fresh, funny, razor-sharp take on society's views of relationships that will have you screaming "YES!" and "OMG she's talking about me!" on every page. Helly's got that brilliant knack of hooking you in from the moment you open the book, with utterly relatable characters and dialogue that sizzles. It's feminist, it's provocative and it was a total joy to read * Hannah Tovey *
A completely genius concept that shines a light on the often archaic ways that society views relationships, or lack thereof. I adore Helly's characters and the way she always manages to write funny and soulful feminist fiction, that has the ability to make us all stop and think. This book is not one to miss! * Sara-Ella Ozbek *
Only Helly Acton could turn the world on its head and still write the most relatable novel in human history. The Couple is so good, I don't have words to define the goodness. It's funny and clever and the concept is one I'm angry I didn't think of. I raced through it in a day, loving every line and every page. I can't recommend it highly enough * Lucy Vine *
A romcom with a difference * Red Magazine *
A love song to female friendships, making your own choices and not caring what everyone thinks. The Couple turns everything we know about relationships on its head and delivers a sparkly, witty and warm story, packed full of heart * Lynsey James *
This clever, funny read is a real breath of fresh air. * Fabulous, The Sun on Sunday *
Very enjoyable, heartwarming...a quick and intriguing read that offers something a little different for fans of the contemporary fiction genre. * CultureFly *
Another thought-provoking, clever-concept novel from Helly Acton. And be prepared for some real laugh-out-loud moments. * Woman's Own *
Hilarious * Irish Sunday Independent *

An incredibly fascinating concept where society is anti-couple and loving yourself with "slide" hook ups is the norm. Slide is like Uber of the dating world and couples are shunned for their habits.
