Nicola, the heroine of the story returns back to Redgum Valley after years. She swapped her place with her sister, Una for a few months so that Una can work on her novel. Meanwhile, Nicola will have to look for their parents. Anybody But Him started with a story of why Nicola wanted to escape from her hometown—Blair Morrissey, the boy who humiliated her in high school.
Anybody But Him is sweet and quick read. I enjoyed reading this one. It’s a cute read that you can finish in less than a day. I love Nicola. She had dyslexia, but that doesn’t stop her from doing her best and becoming an accountant. Blair was really charming and nice. He's the kind of guy I know I would fall in love with. The minor characters like Lainey, Dammit and Nicola’s parents were lovable.
I really like enjoy the dialogue in the story. I definitely love the conversation between Nicola and Blair. They are really witty and fun together. I can’t stop reading it from the moment I open the book. I wanted to know why Blair was being so mean towards Nicola in high school. And I did found out why. It was kind of sweet and sad. The story was straightforward without major twist. I think this is perfect for anyone who was looking for a quick romantic comedy.
