Hello everyone! Today’s my tour stop on the blog tour for Mr Right Across The Street by Kathryn Freeman! 💕 Many thanks to Rachel’s Random Resources for giving me the chance to participate.
Mia Abbott’s move to Manchester was supposed to give her time and space from all the disastrous romantic choices she’s made in her past. But then the hot guy who lives opposite – the one who works out every day at exactly 10 a.m., not that Mia has noticed thank-you-very-much – starts leaving notes in his window…for her.
Bar owner Luke Doyle has his own issues to deal with but as he shows Mia the sites of her new city he also shows her what real romance looks like for the first time. And when he cooks up a signature cocktail in her honour, she realises that the man behind the bar is even more enticing than any of his creations. And once she’s had a taste she knows it will never be enough!

Mr Right Across The Street was a fun, entertaining read. I love books set in the UK, since the stories have a little bit of everything in them – friendship, love and humor. This book was just that. It was sweet, and hella cheesy too!!! 😍 Even though I liked a lot of things about Mia and Luke’s story, I ended up having mixed feelings about the book as a whole. Keep reading to know more my thoughts!
I think the concept of a love story between two people who live across the street from one another is the cutest thing ever. The author executed this plotline in the best way possible. We get to see Mia and Luke gradually fall in love after their meet-cute in Luke’s bar one day. Their chemistry was undeniable from their first meet, and it kept growing as the story went on. I lived for their witty banter and humor-filled conversations. :’) 🧡 The side characters added their own charms to the storyline too, and I loved reading about them! Luke and Mia’s relationship wasn’t all about rainbows and butterflies though. Mia’s insecurities and trust issues were two of the main features of Mr Right Across The Street. It was interesting to see how Luke and Mia navigated their issues and solved them as a couple.
What I didn’t like about the book : I’m not a fan of “I’m not like other girls” trope at all. Frankly, it kind of feels insulting that people of the same gender would feel superior/inferior since they’re not interested in things like fashion and beauty like “other girls”. 🤦♀️Mr Right Across the Street over-emphasized on this trope, and that’s where I got disappointed. Mia’s insecurities for being a “nerd” and always assuming that Luke might not feel the same way about her just because of that, got on my nerves multiple times throughout the story.
Overall, I loved the romance and plot of Mr Right Across the Street – but I really wished it focused on a different theme other than a very clichéd one. 3.45/5 ⭐
