A hilarious and heart-warming romantic comedy that examines how the unlikeliest of loves can bloom in - well, the most likely of places. Perfect for fans of The Hating Game and The Spanish Love Deception.

When Cece James agrees to be cast as a 'Juliet' on the next season of the hit television show Marry Me, Juliet, it's certainly not for the right reasons. She's knee deep in debt and desperate for the associated paycheck. The last thing on her mind is the hunky 'Romeo' waiting for her at the end of the gravel driveway.

But Dylan Jayasinghe Mellor isn't your usual fame-hungry TV star. An Olympic gold medallist with calloused hands, kind eyes and a propensity for panic attacks, it turns out he's not here for the right reasons either. As spokesperson for a men's mental health foundation, and the franchise's first non-white male lead, Dylan's got a charity to plug and something to prove.

When Cece gets eliminated on the first night, it seems like her and Dylan's awkward first meeting will be their last conversation. But when the TV set is shut down unexpectedly, Cece and Dylan suddenly get a little more time together than they'd expected.

Will love bloom when the cameras stop rolling?

Jodi is an author and academic from Kiama, a seaside holiday town on the south coast of New South Wales. Her PhD was awarded by Macquarie University in 2015, and she is currently a lecturer in Writing and Literature at Deakin University in Melbourne. Her academic work focuses on the history of love, sex, women and girls, popular culture and fiction. It means that reading romance novels and watching The Bachelor is technically work for her. You can find Jodi on Twitter at @JodiMcA, where she tweets regularly about her research, her writing, cool things she finds interesting, her hero worship of Kate Bush, and her slightly-too-intense passion for The Bold and the Beautiful. She is the author of young adult novels Valentine, Ironheart and Misrule in the Valentine series. Here for the Right Reasons is her first adult novel.
