I hope you are all having an amazing week so far! I can tell you as I type this post I am eating cookie doe and drinking Moscato, so living my best life right now, lol. Today I bring you a book that I devoured in two days, because I could not put it down. You Deserve Each Other by Sarah Hogle, made me laugh, cry, and scream at the characters.
The book description comes from the Goodreads website:
“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.
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.”
In my opinion Sarah has a hit on her hands, because instead of giving you a slightly unrealistic romance, she gives the reader a couple who has problems that can either break them, make them miserable or make them stronger as a couple, if they can make it that far. A lot of us, myself included, could relate to this in some way to a relationship we have had or currently have. Naomi was a character I instantly fell in love with, and found that I could relate to her on a personal and professional level. Now, I will admit I HATED Nicholas at first, I wanted to reach threw the book and punch him in the face, because he reminded me a little bit of Wickham. However, as the story went a long and I learned more about him, I started to slowly fall in love with him and I got to see a totally different side of him.
Sarah writes these two characters in such a realistic light that you will either want them to end up together or want them to go their separate ways. I definitly have dated a couple of Nicholas’s in my time, because he is such a mommy’s boy like a lot of my exes were. But Nicholas and Naomi both go on a journey of self discovery and discovery as a couple, that it’s not hard to fall in love with the story. You will laugh, you will cry, and you will be sucked into this realistic relationship that you won’t want to stop reading until the very end!
Go on a journey of love and revenge with Naomi and Nicholas my dears!
