What if the problem with your love life is you?

If I Can't Have You by Charlotte Levin is an all-consuming novel about loneliness, obsession and how far we go for the ones we love.

Samuel, the day we met I knew I'd finally found what I've been waiting for.


Happiness, at last.

Then you left me.

And now I am alone.

Everyone I love leaves in the end.

But not this time.

I'm not giving up on us.

I'm not giving up on you.

When you love someone, you never let them go.

That's why for me, this is just beginning.

Reviews for If I Can't Have You

It was obvious from the bold and compelling opening chapter that I was in the hands of a clever and skillful author . . . In Constance Little, Levin has created a memorable character, convincing, at times monstrous, often sympathetic, and full of nuance. Loved, loved, loved it -- Joanna Barnard Compulsively readable and darkly funny with pin-sharp characterization. Love love loved it -- Laura Marshall, <i>Sunday Times</i> bestselling author of <i>The Friend Request</i> An exceptionally raw and visceral and painfully funny novel. Charlotte Levin writes so well and so powerfully about loneliness, longing, love and loss that Constance will stay with me for a long time -- Emma Flint, Women's Prize longlisted author of <i>Little Deaths</i> So beautifully written, such a devastatingly compelling story. I can honestly say it's one of the best books I've ever read - it is without shadow of a doubt, EASILY up there with The Girl on the Train and Eleanor Oliphant -- Ruth Jones
