Praise for The Best of Adam Sharp:
One of Glamour's "Most Anticipated Books of 2017"
"Readers are already clamoring." ―Library Journal
Praise for The Rosie Effect
“One of the best novels I’ve read in ages…Sweet, entertaining, and thought-provoking.” ―Bill Gates
“There’s a moral to this quirky story: The best things in life can’t be planned on a spreadsheet.” –Good Housekeeping
"The Rosie Effect is a celebration of the best attributes to be found in a friend, a husband, or a father, regardless of the way they are expressed." ―Booklist (starred review)
Praise for The Rosie Project
“This rom-com is bursting with warmth, emotional depth, and intentional humor.” ―Entertainment Weekly
“The hype is justified. Australian Graeme Simsion has written a genuinely funny novel... This is classic rom-com.” ―The Washington Post
“Simsion’s attention to detail brings to life Don’s wonderful, weird world. Instead of using Don’s Asperger’s syndrome as a fault, or a lead-in to a tragic turn of events, Simsion creates a heartwarming story of an extraordinary man learning to live in an ordinary world, and to love. As Don would say, this book is ‘great fun.’” ―USA Today
“An utterly winning screwball comedy. . . This charming, warmhearted escapade, which celebrates the havoc―and pleasure―emotions can unleash, offers amusement aplenty. Sharp dialogue, terrific pacing, physical hijinks, slapstick, a couple to root for, and more twists than a pack of Twizzlers.” ―NPR.org
From the Back Cover
From the #1 bestselling author of The Rosie Project and The Rosie Effect comes an unforgettable new novel about lost love and second chances
Adam Sharp is content. He gets on well with his partner, Claire, he does the occasional consulting job in IT to keep busy, and while he doesn’t play the piano much anymore, he is the music expert at the local pub’s trivia night. Life may not be rock ’n’ roll, but neither is it easy listening. And yet, something has always felt off-key.
And that’s his nostalgia for what might have been, his blazing affair more than twenty years ago with Angelina Brown, a smart and sexy, strong-willed actress who taught him for the first time, as he played piano and she sang, what it meant to find—and then lose—love. How different might his life be if he hadn’t let her walk away?
And then, out of nowhere, Angelina gets in touch. Adam has sung about second chances, but does he have the courage to believe in them?
The Best of Adam Sharp is about growing old and feeling young, about happy times and sad memories, about staying together and drifting apart, but most of all, it’s about the power of the songs we sing when we fall in love.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This book was different from "The Rosies." It's definitely a love story, but some of the sex scenes were a bit much for me, though Graeme tempered them well. Even with the details mercifully omitted however, I found one sex a bit disgusting.
I noticed throughout most of the book that he used very little profanity, but toward the end, he included some. Overall, I would recommend it if you don't mind either of these sensibilities on my part.
