About The Book
From the outside Nancy’s life is pretty funny. Or anyway that’s how Jonny see’s it when he meets her in a pub one night after her date doesn’t show up. As a single, working mother living in a happy home of chaos with a gay ex-husband and a band of demanding friends to contend with, can Nancy even fit anyone else into her life? Even someone as gorgeous and funny as Jonny.
A heartwarming, hilarious London romcom tale with a touch of Christmas sparkle.
If you like Mhairi Mcfarlane or Helen Fielding, you'll love new romcom writer Ella Vincent.

'A funny and honest love story for the modern era'
Check Your Privilege was bloody brilliant! I absolutely adore the hell out of it! There are so many reasons for this, it has a unique and contemporary plot. You find yourself often thinking 'been there, done that' the realism and british humour was bloody brilliant. With that all said, it was also dreamy and hilarious.
Nurse Nancy Shufflebottom AKA Hot Nurse, superwoman and my new hero, is a fabulous protagonist. After her husband leaves her to become what he was born to be, a gay man she is now has to learn to look after herself and her children. What I loved about this, was the relationship her and Adam had even after what he had put her through, Nancy's outlook on life and her acceptance was beautiful, such a bright and loving way to look at the world, she wasn't bitter she knew Adam needed to be himself. With that said she did find herself envying his relationship with his partner, which is totally normal, to want to find love, real love that makes you smile just thinking about it.
Nancy ventures into the world of online dating which let me tell you is hilarious, being stood up she meets Jonny, Oh how I love this man. I swooned so hard I could of fell of my bed, Jonny is very privileged man, being funded for life by his parents as he follows his dreams of being a successful musician. He is also very witty, his humour is perfect for me, the way he makes fun of Nancy for her crazy life and his text messages had me laughing like a seal. (insert cute Ryan Gosling Gif)
Did the book make me think? Yes, it did, I analyzed my emotions, my reactions I thought about how would I feel if that happened to me and I rooted for the characters, I willed them to find happiness.
This book is BRILLIANT, I can't recommend it enough. Real, cutting and comical Check Your Privilege is priceless!
