Happy Sunday friends! Or whatever day it happens to be when you’re reading this. I truly hope that you are surviving this pandemic the best way that you can be. My heart and prayers are with each of you.
Today I’m going to be reviewing You Deserve Each Other by Sarah Hogle. This book should be available today, which is not the day that I happen to be writing this post, but the day that it actually goes live. Anywho…if you’ve been here before then you know the drill – I’ll provide the description of the book from NetGalley, followed by my personal review and star rating. Thanks for dropping by today. Enjoy.
*Disclaimer : I received a copy of this ebook for free from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
When your nemesis also happens to be your fiancé, happily ever after becomes a lot more complicated in this wickedly funny, lovers-to-enemies-to-lovers romantic comedy debut.
Naomi Westfield has the perfect fiancé: Nicholas Rose holds doors open for her, remembers her restaurant orders, and comes from the kind of upstanding society family any bride would love to be a part of. They never fight. They’re preparing for their lavish wedding that’s three months away. And she is miserably and utterly sick of him.
Naomi wants out, but there’s a catch: whoever ends the engagement will have to foot the nonrefundable wedding bill. When Naomi discovers that Nicholas, too, has been feigning contentment, the two of them go head-to-head in a battle of pranks, sabotage, and all-out emotional warfare.
But with the countdown looming to the wedding that may or may not come to pass, Naomi finds her resolve slipping. Because now that they have nothing to lose, they’re finally being themselves–and having fun with the last person they expect: each other.
My Review :
This is one of my favorite books so far this year. It is such a true illustration of a lot of relationships. I don’t know about you, but my husband and I didn’t really love each other until we got to the point where we almost walked away.
It’s in these moments – the pure, passion filled moments of fire that are either going to make or break you.
I really want to explain all the parts of this book that I found relevant – but I don’t want to spoil it for you because I really feel like you should read it for yourself. 😉
I’ll leave with this – don’t take for granted what another person is doing for you. Those little and sweet things that are so cute in the beginning that then become mundane – don’t forget those. Those are the glue that can be holding your relationship together.
I’m guilty of this in my own life. Something my husband does out of the goodness of his heart I totally take for granted. Complacency and disinterest can kill any good relationship, no matter how strong you think that you are.
Naomi and Nicholas are such a fun couple to read about – and the way the ending comes together is perfection.
