If I Loved You Less: Unabridged edition

By Aamna Qureshi, Read by Sharmila Devar

A joyful romantic comedy retelling of Jane Austen’s Emma!

“This book is perfect. IF I LOVED YOU LESS is a deeply romantic, laugh-out-loud love story with sizzling tension and beautiful descriptions that made me wish I was in Long Island in the winter. The world Qureshi has written is a comforting, magical little bubble full of characters with such depth and love for each other, and I want to burrow into the pages like a bookmark and never leave. A thousand stars.” – Sarah Hogle, author of YOU DESERVE EACH OTHER

I know what you’re thinking: poor little rich girl, she has everything, what else could she possibly need? Well, I’m looking for the great love of my life, thank you very much.

For Long Island native Humaira Mirza, it’s always been about love – and she has the matchmaking track record to prove it. Having successfully found ‘the one’ for both her aunt and her sister, the twenty-three-year-old is ready to claim a bit of romance for herself.

The perfect candidate? The gorgeous Rizwan Ali. But as Humaira employs her unique skills to obtain the perfect match with Rizwan, she’s forced to endure the disapproval of family friend Fawad Sheikh who she’s known forever. Fawad and Humaira have long traded barbs but as her romantic meddling leads to unintentional misadventures, she realises something shocking – is she starting to care what Fawad thinks?
