Marcello: Love in the City

Wow, 17,428 of you have read this.
The first novel by ‘Marcello’ – the popular dating blogger from WeAreTheCity.

Marcello is a successful London professional. He is also a dating blogger in search of true love.

As a sociable, thirty-something City worker Marcello shouldn’t have any trouble finding a girlfriend. Only he is having trouble – lots of it – and he has no idea why.

Perhaps it’s something to do with his bumbling demeanour, or maybe it’s his overzealous approach to online dating. Whatever the reason he chronicles his misadventures with granular precision.

As Marcello’s dating blog gains traction, his career starts to slide. He unwittingly makes an enemy of his sociopathic boss and has to fight for his job. With his professional life in jeopardy he draws closer to his only true friend at work, the steely, enigmatic Jess. But as the office war rages he begins to wonder if it’s all worth it. Moreover, he wonders if he’s ever going to find The One.

Based on the popular blog on the women’s business networking site WeAreTheCity, Marcello: Love in the City is a funny, heartwarming tale for anyone who’s ever struggled to find love online, or toiled in the corporate world while dreaming of escape. It is a story of modern life in the capital, and of finding love in unexpected places.
