The Idea of You by Robinne Lee Book Summary

Included on The Skimm's 2020 list of Eight Books Both You and Mom Will Love

"The sleeper hit of the pandemic . . . . There is no escapism like reading about a nearly middle-aged woman embarking on a glittering, global love affair with a thoughtful young sex god . . . . It's electric, triumphant to read." —Vogue.com

"An OMG page-turner." —Gabrielle Union

Solène Marchand, the thirty-nine-year-old owner of an art gallery in Los Angeles, is reluctant to take her daughter, Isabelle, to meet her favorite boy band. But since her divorce, she’s more eager than ever to be close to Isabelle. The last thing Solène expects is to make a connection with one of the members of the world-famous August Moon. But Hayes Campbell is clever, winning, confident, and posh, and the attraction is immediate. That he is all of twenty years old further complicates things.

What begins as a series of clandestine trysts quickly evolves into a passionate and genuine relationship. It is a journey that spans continents as Solène and Hayes navigate each other’s worlds: from stadium tours to international art fairs to secluded hideaways in Paris and Miami. For Solène, it is a reclaiming of self, as well as a rediscovery of happiness and love. When Solène and Hayes’ romance becomes a viral sensation, and both she and her daughter become the target of rabid fans and an insatiable media, Solène must face how her romantic life has impacted the lives of those she cares about most.

Beautiful love story. I don’t think I can review this without giving the story away; so I won’t. I enjoyed the characters and relationships. It was beautiful.

Please write more. I know you’re busy, but.... would love to hear more from your voice. Thanks for some respite from this Groundhog Day nightmare. Plus, I miss Michelle and Barack, good taste and good times at the White House and, oh, maybe, some competence. Your loyal readers await.

The best!. TIOY is one AMAZING book from beginning to end, you won’t want to put it down! I highly recommended reading then listening to the audio with Robinne narrating. It’s sexy, riveting, emotional, awe-inspiring, brilliant, captivating. I could go on and on! ♥️🙌🏻

Just read it!!. This book wrecked me in so many ways. But it was beautifully written, and I loved it! Can’t believe it’s over.

I was sad when the book was over. Love this book but the ending seems rushed to me. I need a sequel to tie up the loose ends

We need a sequel 😭😭😭. I made it through 92% of this book in one weekend, but I couldn’t will myself through the last 8% knowing that there wasn’t a sequel out as of when I was reading. It took me about two weeks to finally make myself finish the story. Robinne Lee, please write a sequel to this.

Loved it. I could not stop reading this. I did not want this book to end. I want to know more about what happens after!

I liked it until the end. The ending made me both angry and sad!

Ending was disappointing. The premise to this book was very far fetched but somewhat entertaining. You try to out yourself in the scenario but no matter how you spin it, there is just no way it could be believable let alone relatable. But having gotten through the whole book, you find yourself invested on seeing how it inevitably pans out. Total disappointment. The ending felt very rushed, as if the writer ran out of time with the teacher yelling out for everyone to put down their pencils. No closure, no climax, not even enough to leave something, anything up to the readers imagination. Maybe the author was kidnapped before she could finish?

Not a HEA. Book was great, except the ending. The ending murdered the book for me.

A MUST READ. This book was so good I finished it in 2 days. I struggled to move on to another book because I didn’t want to be disappointed when it wouldn’t be as good as this one. It made me so happy and sad at the same time. Their captivating love is all consuming.

The Idea of You. I loved the story. I didn’t like the ending! I wanted them to make it work.

The Idea Of You. This is by far one of the best books I’ve ever read. The ending had me in actual tears. You get so caught up in the book that you never want to stop reading and when you finally do you can’t wait to get back to it. The emotions that run through your head while reading it, you feel as if you are actually experiencing it. The two main characters Solène and Hayes have such strong chemistry that you can’t not love them. This book is a definite must read. It’s not just another romance novel it also deals with women empowerment and how even though we get older, we just need to remind ourselves that we are beautiful, we are wanted, and we are loved. Don’t listen to what social media has to say about how we as women should act or look. Listen to your heart and everything will be okay. Thank you Robinne Lee! 💕

Refund me. The ending takes away from the book. Highly disappointed. I want a refund.

Epic. Read it.

Wow. I don’t know why I let this one sit in my want to read list for so long. Just a fantastic story. But the ending….geez. I feel like I need to jump right into a different book to get these characters out of my head. So good.

Will tear your heart out !. Omg this was such an emotional read (in a good way) ... who hasn’t dreamt of being with their boy band crush?!? I know I have lol I literally read this book in one day . Loved this book!

Obsessed!. I want more!

Great read!. This book is so well written. Although, (spoiler alert) I would have preferred a much happier ending. As a mother, I totally related to putting your child’s happiness before your own. As a lover of romance, I was caught up in their love story. I read this book in two days in between working full time, doing laundry, cooking dinner, and taking my son to school . That’s how good this book is!!

Celebrity has its ups and downs. Sadly I have never been a celebrity or been with celebrities, but the portrayal of celebrity life in this novel crackles with authenticity and verve. Touching, sexy and fun!

A book that will always be with you. I finished this book in 2 days over a week ago and still can’t let it go. I don’t think I’ve ever read a book where the characters feel as real as they do like this book. I can see how the author might not write a sequel because the characters seem like they come alive. The writing was lovely. Now to listen to the audiobook…

So good I didn’t want it to end!. I loved it. I couldn’t put the book down. I didn’t want the book to end.

Great read. Very different from what I anticipated. Twist and turns kept me glued to my iBook version.

Must read!. I love, love this book! Women of all ages can read but this is more for us ladies over 35. I must say a mature woman and a young 20 yr old man or boy is a mismatch. However, age is just a number. I understand and see Solene’s POV. She is divorced, a single mom, and a career woman. Hayes literally swept her off her feet, but he’s still young and hasn’t experienced much. He is mature for his age but hasn’t lived his fullest life yet. I won’t spoil the story but it was heart wrenching to read. I wish I knew the ending; it was vague and left me wondering.

The Idea of You. I loved it and hated it too! I cried when it ended.

Loved this book!. It’s real. It’s heartfelt. It’s emotional. I hope the author writes a sequel!

The Idea of You. First time reading this author. Even though I knew how this story would end, all the five star reviews convinced me it would be worth my tears. I usually stick to funny and HEAs to escape the country’s turmoil. This author is an excellent writer, I would most certainly read her again. A sequel would be great, even knowing there could be no other ending. I would like to know they both eventually found happiness, but still lived in each other’s hearts, giving me my HEA. 🥲

We need a sequel!. I cried not because of the ending but because the book was over.

Awful ending. Will not elaborate, it’s just bad

Loved the book (skip the last chapter). So so so good. I wish the ending were different though.

What Ending?!. I really hope there is a sequel coming. This book was so good and well written until it just abruptly ended…

❤️. I’m 39 and looooved this book. A perfect summer read. Thank you.

Couldn’t put it down. Loved it!!!

One of my favorite books in the world. The most hauntingly beautiful and heartbreaking story about love, loss, and pain. The hard choices we have to make in letting go of something that would make us happy forever. This story will stay with me until my last days on earth. So remarkably written

The idea of you. Too much detail on the sex. Too little detail on the relationship with friends daughter and coworkers. Ending left a lot to be desired. Kept waiting for the drama to be developed l… just mentioning it was not deep enough Hard to believe there was anything more in this relationship than sex.

Meh. I wanted to love this book, I think the concept is interesting but I couldn’t get past the relationship between the two main characters. It felt like I was reading the same chapter over and over again: the two would meet up, have sex, and repeat. I actually skipped over a lot of chapters cause I was waiting for something else to happen, but no. It was hard to root for their relationship because it seemed like it was only physical. Plus I found myself cringing at the way they spoke to each other. And the ending seemed so rushed. I was expecting so much more.

Amazing love story!. Loved this book!! Well done, you feel like you know this characters snd their feelings. I desperately want a sequel to tie things up, bring them back together!!

I couldn’t put it down. Such a great story, a true page turner! I wanted more!

Where’s the rest??!!. I loved the story, the characters and the writing!! No complaints!! But where’s the rest??? That’s it? No prologue? No follow up?? I don’t need a happy ending, just let me know what happens to them. This needs a sequel... PLEASE

Intimate and raw. It leaves you breathless, hopeful, and grounded in an unexpected way. The beauty of love and the reality of life, it is very well worth the read. rb

So good!. There HAS to be a sequel!!!

Totally unexpected. The cover tag line drew me in as a fun beach read. But this book turned out to be so much more. Excellent writing. My heart ached for the main character. I absolutely loved it!!

Fun romance. I loved the writing in this book. The main characters are very likable and human, making mistakes. This book will take you on an emotional journey. The intimate moments are short but hot. I really liked this debut.

Loved it. Amazing but the end killed me. It can't end this way.

Loved!. This book was so much more than I expected. Thought it would be a trashy-ish beach read and boy was I wrong! I couldn't put it down. I loved the characters, they made me feel so much. An emotional roller coaster!

The Idea of You. God girl, you killed me. Loved the whole book, but I knew how it was going to end. And I cried, did you?

Wow. I read this in a day bc I couldn’t stop myself...and it such a good cry!!!!

Can’t get over it. This book is perfection. It has it all- a love story, beautiful & intelligent characters, amazing locales, humor, art, sophistication, boy bands, designer clothes, and don’t get me started on the sex. Robinne Lee blows it out of the park. Read it. You won’t regret it. Even when you’re still not over it 2 weeks later.

Great captivating story. I had to keep reading to find out how this book was going to end. I may have even cried a little at the end lol, this book was written really well I couldn’t put it down. The ending did feel like it was leading up to a second book

This Book Deserves More Attention. Absolutely recommend this book! I read a lot of contemporary romances and they can get super predictable and unimaginative, to the point where they all bleed together and aren’t worth your time. This book is one of the exceptions. The author is emotive and articulate and has wonderful depth to her characters that I miss in a lot of romances. This author deserves more hype and appreciation for this novel - I hope they both continue to be discovered and hope she continues to write!

The Idea of You. I loved this book! Though I feel that there is more to this story and perhaps it’s not the end?
