Saturdays at Noon Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Brought to you by Penguin.
The stunning debut with a difference.
Perfect for fans of One Day and The Rosie Project.
When Jake and Emily meet, sparks fly. And not the good kind.
Emily just wants to keep the world away. She doesn't want anyone to know all the ways her life is messed up. Going to anger management every Saturday, talking to strangers, was not part of the plan.
Jake just wants to keep his family together. He's also messed everything up. Going to anger management is now his best hope for bonding with his six-year-old, Alfie.
Emily can't understand why Jake - who seems to have it all - is even there. Jake can't understand why Alfie - who never likes strangers - lights up around spikey Emily.
Everything they think about each other is about to change. But can they change how they feel about themselves?

It was very enjoyable watching the change and development in Jake and Emily’s relationship, with a little help from Alfie. I liked how it evolved from that prickly first meeting and the subsequent awkward encounters to something quite lovely and right. A really good read from start to finish.
After seeing great reviews, I treated myself to an ebook copy and settled down to read this during the Easter holiday.
Loved the opening - the is the first time I've seen a book start in a weekly anger management class. Jake, Emily and Alfie are great characters but Rachel Marks brings all the characters to life so well. I loved the small details included about how to help Alfie achieve happiness and contentedness. Having worked with children over the past 17 years, they all need to be treated as individuals and to be listened to.
This is a book I struggled to put down, wanting to know what what was going to happen next and I devoured it in a day. Well written and thought provoking, covering some difficult issues but also providing some laugh out loud moments too. Definitely a 5 star read for me.
Oh what an absolute charm of a book this really is. This isn't just your normal love story, boy meets girl, this is an entwined and complicated portrayal of parenthood, love and following both your head & your heart.
"When Jake and Emily meet at an anger management class held on Saturdays at noon, they expect to be cured of their problems, themselves to blame. Thrown together after an encounter with Jake's son Alfie, it seems that Emily may just become a permanent fixture in their lives. Alfie, a 6 year old intelligent & funny but very frustrated little boy, waiting for someone to notice that his insecurities and traits that make him special, deserve recognition & support.
Emily may just be that person for both Alfie and Jake, the person they have both deserved all this time"
Oh I loved this book. It took a few chapters, then something clicked and I was hooked. This book was so relevant to parenting today, so many little sentences that made me laugh at being so relatable.
I could see myself in Emily, i could feel the tension in Jake, and I was desperately hoping Alfie would be saved ♥️ You'll have to read it to find out...

Emily and Jake find themselves at the same anger management class (on Saturdays at noon) and neither of them want to be there. Emily isn't prepared to open up about her past and Jake is only there to appease his wife. But when Emily hits is off with Jake's son, Alfie, they try to set aside their reservations about each other for his sake.
This is a deeply moving book about relationships, marriage, friendships and how having a child can pull you apart and put you back together again. I absolutely loved this book and would highly recommend it.
