You, Me and Us
“F*** you for breaking my f***ing heart…”
This is the heart-breaking yet hilarious story of Jimmy Rowland and Erin Poppet.
Jimmy Rowland has the perfect life. He works in his favourite bar by day, and by night he lives his dream with his two best friends in his band.
Erin Poppet crashes into Jimmy’s life like a beautiful storm. He falls in love with her as quickly and as deeply as possible. The intensity of their relationship leaves Jimmy with a broken heart, a useless vacuum and a demon inside him.
Jimmy’s dream life quickly becomes a nightmare when he loses his dream job and destroys his musical career live on stage.
When he hits rock bottom, he decides he only has one choice, to rebuild his life from scratch. He has to get back the life he had before Erin.
This is her story. This is his story. This is their story.
Or as Jimmy would say…
“… this is the story of You, Me and Us.”
Jimmy Rowlands life was ticking along nicely until the day he met Erin Poppet, and things are great between them…..for a while. As the insecurities mount up and the cracks appear Jimmy finds things slipping away.
Based in Manchester, Jimmy is the typical ‘cheeky chappie’ with a joke for every occasion. His humour comes through really well and he is a likeable, down to Earth bloke but with a sensitive side, showing deep emotions and a heart of gold. From the start, I knew that Erin wasn’t right for him and I worried about Jimmy falling in love so fast.
What effect does this relationship have on Jimmy’s friendships, health, family and career?
Will he ever be able to sing the lyrics to his own song again?
A very ‘real’ romance, told from the perspective of a young, talented musician, so the language is strong throughout. I think young people will relate to this and want to read more from Liam Hurley.
