Waterstones Says

Perfect summer reading for all fans of Taylor Jenkins Reid, The Idea of You centres on a megastar boyband member and the passionate affair that must remain a closely guarded secret.

Everyone in the world knows his name... but it's you he wants. 

To the media, Hayes Campbell is the enigmatic front-man of a record-breaking boyband.

To his fans, he's the boy of their dreams.

To his label, he's gold-dust.

And to Solene Marchand, he's the pretty face that's plastered over her teenage daughter's bedroom wall.

Until a chance meeting throws Hayes and Solene together ...

The attraction is instant. The chemistry is electric. The affair is Solene's secret.

But can it really stay that way forever?

The sleeper hit of the pandemic ... a glittering, global love affair full of bougie, vicarious travel. It's electric, triumphant, to read

An honest and elegant book about modern love in the age of uber-celebrity and social media
