    Four let s make a party to congratulate we have a new evil genius, sarcastic writer in the town who knows how to write a great mean romantic comedy stars I think promoting this book as a great choice for the fans of Hating Games might be wrong Only thing there is similar with Sally Thorne s book is HATING part The characters are not colleagues This is not slow burn enemies to lovers story They re already engaged This could be best defined as friends lovers enemies friends again lovers Four let s make a party to congratulate we have a new evil genius, sarcastic writer in the town who knows how to write a great mean romantic comedy stars I think promoting this book as a great choice for the fans of Hating Games might be wrong Only thing there is similar with Sally Thorne s book is HATING part The characters are not colleagues This is not slow burn enemies to lovers story They re already engaged This could be best defined as friends lovers enemies friends again lovers story Because the chronology of the couple s relationship developed as I summarized At first the book a little irritated me Because both characters acted like spoiled toddlers, immature brats who were evil minds trying so hard to sabotage each other or they were mostly each other s throats Sometimes I wanted to put duct tapes on their mouths and scold them to learn act like real grown ups Let me introduce you Naomi who is about to lose her job, has limited connection with her family She is making A,B,C,D plans for her life but she doesn t get any action And her fianc e, our hero, Nicholas, charming, successful but also a little arrogant, snob, annoying and truly mother s boy Yessss, we had a MOTHER IN LAW ZILLA OR MOMAZILLA ALERT Deborah, the evil queens of mother in laws is quiet mash up of Miranda Presley Meryl Streep s Devil Wears Prada character , Mary Louise Wright Meryl Streep s Big Little Lies character , Eleanor Shaw Meryl Streep s Manchurian Candidate character Okay she s definitely evil version of Meryl Streep SO I was about to give two stars to this book Because first 100 pages I hate the guts of the characters Both of them were definition of shining, rising DOUCHEBAGS I found it ridiculous their decision to stay together If they hated each other so much and said so many things to ruin what they had before, they should take time off or begin to communicate about what s happening to them.Playing games, working on multiple creative pranks might look like fun but they didn t do anything about the elephant in their living room that not only broke all the valuable, fragile things but also is about to destroy their relationship Naomi seemed like too much coward to get an important decision about her life and Nicholas seemed like too stubborn to end things with her But I have to admit, the pranks they ve orchestrated were so entertaining Few pages later you began to root for Nicholas who was really trying to save their relationship Without asking Naomi, buying a new house and making decisions about their lives seemed like a wrong move But later we realized he did the right thing Because he didn t only buy a house, he also bought a place they could become a couple who still love each other and make things work THINGS MADE ME RAISE MY STAR POINTS The second half of the book the couple made peace and realized the reasons why they fell in love with each other and they learned from their mistakes and turned into PARTNERS IN CRIME The part how they met made me smile too much So yes, I had a little bad start but the witty, entertaining writing mesmerized me I laughed so much especially the part Naomi and Nicholas hiding behind the closed door not to invite Deborah inside their house and telling their excuses from alien abduction to Nicholas real identity as Shia LaBeouf I had great time with this debut novel So happy I lately meet with fantastic new writers.Special thanks to Putnam and NetGalley for sharing this amazing ARC COPY with me as exchange my honest review.bloginstagramfacebooktwitter

    5 5 this book cracked me up Not having any idea what this whole book was about except for the few exciting prompts that the synopsis promised, I dove head first into it and boy, that was an experience I wasn t expecting.I mean, yeah, by now I realised that enemies to lovers tropes are my jam, but lovers to enemies to lovers plot with insanely good comedy Sweet baby Jesus, YES.Given the fact that this was my fifth rom com novel of the week, I thought I was going to be kind of passive about it 5 5 this book cracked me up Not having any idea what this whole book was about except for the few exciting prompts that the synopsis promised, I dove head first into it and boy, that was an experience I wasn t expecting.I mean, yeah, by now I realised that enemies to lovers tropes are my jam, but lovers to enemies to lovers plot with insanely good comedy Sweet baby Jesus, YES.Given the fact that this was my fifth rom com novel of the week, I thought I was going to be kind of passive about it but honestly, it was one of the best rom coms I ve ever read and I don t exaggerate when I say that I put it on my Favourite Books shelf because I might consider re reading it someday This is how much I enjoy it.The whole plot felt somehow fresh.It started when Naomi and Nicholas were at the beginning of their relationship and everything was candy floss and unicorns You know, the usual I m so in love with this perfect and gorgeous person omg I can t believe how lucky I am shit Which is cute, but this is how rom coms usually end, not start with.The rest of the book until at least the half of it it s what happens after two years of relationship and, whoopsie, an engagement Finally, I get to see how love dies in a romance book Thank the divinity.Naomi hates Nicholas with a passion With two passions, actually, because she has to deal with his Mummy Dearest too.Just picture it, Nicholas is Mummy s adult boy, the Perfect Son who gets out of his way to please his parents who are some sort of ungrateful snobs, btw and he always puts Naomi on the second place just because she is not assertive enough to rub it in his face.At first, I honestly hated both Nicholas and his mother Deborah, Deb for friends wink wink and I had this vivid image in my head of a perfectly shaped hoof on either of their faces because boy, they deserved a donkey kick in their mouths Nicholas is a dentist so, pun definitely intended.Nicholas was being a total pig with Naomi and by the time she realised that, Hurricane Naomi was unleashed And it felt so damn good She hated him and she wanted nothingthan make his life a living hell until he, eventually, called the wedding off But the thing is, two could play this game and so Nicholas launched in this little war of marriage, not letting Naomi have her way.I honestly loved the comedy in this I haven t laughed like that in such a long time it felt like aeons But this book was so witty with words that I couldn t help but crack up every five pages The banter is just amazing.The second half of the book was extremely sweet it was a journey of discovering lost feelings and learning how to fell in love all over again It was tender and fun and lovable and nerdy and delicious and it felt like that childhood blanket that you forgot about but when you found it again and held it tight to your chest it brought back all the good times.I am so happy I picked up this book because it was the best combination of comedy and romance one of the most balanced novels of this genre that I ve ever come across.To me, this book feltlike an actual film, where I could see perfectly with my mind s eye everything I was reading To me, it was like that comfortable romantic comedy that one watches over and over again and never gets tired of because it feels somehow safe and true.I am definitely impressed and I am for sure going to re read this at least once Book styled

    I woke up thinking about this book this morning and already wanting to reread and that alone warrants it a 5 star It s safe to say I am obsessed with it.But if you need reasons to pick it up then I have some, I guess This is generally a trope that works for me I enjoy second chance love stories I enjoy seeing what makes a couple fall in love again, or in this case, save their relationship as well There are always a whole load of factors that come into play when a relationship almost breaks I woke up thinking about this book this morning and already wanting to reread and that alone warrants it a 5 star It s safe to say I am obsessed with it.But if you need reasons to pick it up then I have some, I guess This is generally a trope that works for me I enjoy second chance love stories I enjoy seeing what makes a couple fall in love again, or in this case, save their relationship as well There are always a whole load of factors that come into play when a relationship almost breaks down And whilst this story covered that up with humour, sarcasm and pettiness which I highly enjoyed, the dislike between them was still palpable To the point where I had doubts these two characters would make their relationship work I didn t see the light at the end of the tunnel But then it gets to a point where they ve had enough and fighting becomes exhausting and we get exposed to these glimpses of vulnerability and tenderness, which made me choke up a bit and makes them remember why they fell for one another And had they communicated from the beginning and boundaries been set, it could ve all been avoided However choosing to be open with someone isn t always that easy I always dislike it when characters get questioned about why they couldn t communicate their feelings It doesn t come naturally to most people Being vulnerable isn t something that is taught and frankly, is tough as shit Especially when you ve already feel like you ve been dismissed several times But they chose to make it work.All in all, every part of this story clicked for me They formed and defined their own family, they chose to work hard at their relationship again and through all of that, it made their relationship all thebetter than when they initially got together They became a team GIVE ME THIS BOOK

    I m not sure I ve ever laughed that hard while reading a book.Ever.Like, out loud with tears running down my face Not even kidding a little bit.Ok, and that may be because the timing on this was nigh on perfect I was very much in the mood to Carole Baskin my husband when I came across this book, and it hit me directly in the funnybone.See, my spouse I were at the time going several rounds over this hideous thing he did to our mailbox after a few too many Margaritas.He got this brilliant idea I m not sure I ve ever laughed that hard while reading a book.Ever.Like, out loud with tears running down my face Not even kidding a little bit.Ok, and that may be because the timing on this was nigh on perfect I was very much in the mood to Carole Baskin my husband when I came across this book, and it hit me directly in the funnybone.See, my spouse I were at the time going several rounds over this hideous thing he did to our mailbox after a few too many Margaritas.He got this brilliant idea to use these rocks he found on the side of the road, some ratty sort of half dead grass plant, and CACTUS that I m assuming he also found on the side of the road Then he stuffed all of his redneck plants into the ground and dug up the surrounding grass at some sort of an off kilter angle and plopped his nasty roadside rocks all around my poor mailbox.WHO THE FUCK DOES THAT I was so mad I kept getting up that night to peer angrily out the window at it Eventually, I stomped downstairs and slept on the couch For THREE days Each morning I would put on a pot of coffee and make my way upstairs while he was getting ready for work, just so that I could Google things in front of him like this Cute Mailbox Landscaping.The Proper Way to Landscape Your Mailbox.How Not To Look Like a Hillbilly When Landscaping Your Mailbox.How to Fix Fucked Up Mailbox Landscaping.My vacation to the sofa pinched something in my spine, causing my leg to tingle unpleasantly for days afterward In fact, I m still revving up the heating pad at night to make up for sleeping on that caved in monstrosity that my children have ruined with their inability to sit down on anything gently.And yet, even with the knowledge that my big toe and right ass cheek will likely continue to have the odd twinge for the next few weeks, I d still sanctimoniously snatch up my pillow and loudly make my way downstairs.Why Because I wore him down Was there ever a doubt in your mind And right now when I look out my window and peer at my mailbox, there s a nice set of pavers surrounding some colorful bushes and tasteful plants accented with white rock Here s how it went down 7am Day 3Him So What Are you saying you don t like what I did to the mailbox Me Him Fine then I guess I ll just go out and move it all BEFORE I GO TO WORK THIS MORNING pauses for me to tell him not to trouble himself Me Him happy sigh Gone are the half dead sprigs of roadside weeds Gone are the mismatched rocks thrown haphazardly in an off centered half circle Gone are the torn clumps of cactus pushed into the ground with all the finesse of a drunken toddler Although the mailbox itself still tilts slightly to the left because he ran it over with the U Haul on the day we moved in This was apparently my fault, though, because I had parked my car in such a way that it obscured his field of view Whatthefuckever Idiot.I said all that to say this, the level of gleeful pettiness in this book is something that you can only have between two people who realize they are financially socially trapped together in my case, till death do us part These two were only engaged and already they were feeling the pinch Now add 20 years to thatAt some point, every part of a couple s life becomes unbelievably twisted together What should be comforting can start to chafe, and then the quiet realization sets in that you two are fucking stuck together You can t leave because then you re the asshole that left You can kiss your mutual friends goodbye because they are inevitably going to side with your poor discarded ex.Also, you usually get stuck footing the bill for shit if you leave BUT If you get the other one to pull the plug on the life support Well, then you can skip a dee doo da right out the door free and clear as the injured party How exactly do you go about getting someone to leave you once you realize that they have the same plan in mind That is the story You Deserve Each Other is telling.The insidious future mother in law, the preppy snob of a fiancee, the feelings of annoyance mingled with embarrassmentAnd when our hilarious heroine pulls off her gloves and throws away all of her fucks it turns into a giant game of relationship chicken I honestly can t believe this was Sarah Hogle s debut book How This woman is legitimately so funny she may be responsible for saving my husband s life Instead of feeding him to a tiger, I just went and read a littleof this book In fact, I m buying the book so the next time he pulls something stupid and he will I will have something to do with my hands other than choke the life out of him.It s a win win situation Highly Recommended PS I m looking for a reasonably priced meat grinder Asking for a friend.

    I read this book three times in one week I think that should tell you something I hope that something is PICK UP THIS BOOK This book is marketed for fans of The Hating Game by Sally Thorne.And they are so right because this book is like The Hating Game turned up to eleven Naomi and Nicholas were hilarious in their efforts to mess with each other The length they went to were both juvenile and petty and I loved every second of it Mixed in with all their pranks and not so subtle jabs at each I read this book three times in one week I think that should tell you something I hope that something is PICK UP THIS BOOK This book is marketed for fans of The Hating Game by Sally Thorne.And they are so right because this book is like The Hating Game turned up to eleven Naomi and Nicholas were hilarious in their efforts to mess with each other The length they went to were both juvenile and petty and I loved every second of it Mixed in with all their pranks and not so subtle jabs at each other, it is very obvious that the two still do care for each other and that was probably the best part They knew all of each other s weak spots and used every advantage at their disposal, all while somehow remaining amicable enough to coinhabit.I think the following passage describes their relationship best of allWhen I m in the bathroom, he orders me a Dr Pepper, which he knows is my favorite.Before we leave, I wipe all the crumbs onto our plates and stack them, which I know he appreciates because he tries to be helpful with the busboys.When we get back out to the car, we plot how to ruin each other s livesThroughout the book there are a lot of arguments, some of them petty and some of them valid There is lots of family drama and character growth.But there was also the underlying romance that grew throughout it all.Naomi and Nicholas were great to read about I loved their antics, butthan that I loved the complexity of their relationships They love so much about each other and yet don t actually like who the other is, or rather, who the other has become over time They are trying to figure themselves, and each other, out and that was the best part of the book I loved seeing their journey to being people who they themselves, and the other, both love.I did originally give this book four stars and it s because I have to admit, the characters are kind of annoying at first They act like spoiled brats They barely tolerate each other and acted as if they were justified in their behavior while the other was obviously wrong Naomi is whiny and self absorbed Nicholas is an arrogant momma s boy That does change as the book progresses and it was something I sort of overlooked in my rereadings since I knew what went down later.Still, I don t doubt that I will probably be rereading this book yet again in the future.If you re a fan of The Hating Game, I highly recommend this one And if you haven t read The Hating Game, then I recommend this evenIf you re one of the few who hated it, then maybe this won t be for you, but also, I say give it a shot.All of that said, if you simply like great and hilarious and well written contemporary romances, then this is the book for you.I can t wait to see what else this author has in store for the future I received an advance copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review All opinions are my own Follow Me Here Too My Blog Twitter Bloglovin Instagram Tumblr Pinterest
