Not the Girl You Marry by Andie J. Christopher @berkleypub #bookreview

Happy Monday everybody!

Coming at you with another amazing romance! I just had so much fun reading this book and recommend it to everyone with a sense of humor! 😍

My Thoughts

Andie J. Christopher has written a fun retelling of one of my all-time favorite movies How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. The book put a bit of a twist on it, this time it is the guy that is trying to lose the girl and it is the girl trying to prove that she can be in a relationship. This was just a Playful light hearted story Full of sass, Snark, steam, and four letter words. Jack and Hannah meet one night at a bar, there is instant chemistry, but neither of them are looking for a relationship. The night they meet they share an amazing kiss, exchange numbers, yet still they resist. Then Jack’s boss gives him and opportunity. If he can write an article on how to lose a girl in two weeks, then he will be given the opportunity to write a political column. Similarly Hannah who is an event planner is wanting to start planning weddings. When her boss implies that she’s not the right girl to plan weddings, because she’s not even in a relationship, Hannah lets it slip that she in fact is now in a relationship. SO now both Jack and Hannah are using one another to bolster their careers. The problem is they both start to catch real feelings for one another.

Told from both Jack and Hannah‘s perspectives, I really got invested in this seemingly doomed romance. Hannah was strong, smart, kind of a bitch on wheels, but she definitely had a sweet vulnerable side. Jack was such a good guy, A little clueless, but so authentic. If I had any complaint about this book it would be that Jack doing this was really out of character for him, but I guess it needed to happen for the book to work. Loved all the secondary characters in the story. Jack had the most amazing family even his mom who left him when he was younger was a great character. Hannah‘s BFF Sasha was amazing, I’d love to see a story where she gets her HEA! This book just made me smile and feel all warm and gooey inside. There is some definite sizzle in the story and these characters do like to throw around those for letter words, so if that’s not your thing this might not work for you.

About the Book

Not the Girl You Marry is funny, heartfelt, and super sexy!” (Jasmine Guillory, New York Times best-selling author)

How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days gets a millennial makeover in this romantic comedy by USA Today best-selling author Andie J. Christopher.

Jack Nolan is a gentleman, a journalist, and unlucky in love. His viral success has pigeon-holed him as the how-to guy for a buzzy, internet media company instead of covering hard-hitting politics. Fed up with his fluffy articles and the app-based dating scene as well, he strikes a deal with his boss to write a final pièce de résistance: “How to Lose a Girl”. Easier said than done when the girl he meets is Hannah Mayfield, and he’s not sure he wants her to dump him.

Hannah is an extremely successful event planner who’s focused on climbing the career ladder. Her firm is one of the most prestigious in the city, and she’s determined to secure her next promotion. But Hannah has a bit of an image problem. She needs to show her boss that she has range, including planning dreaded, romantic weddings. Enter Jack. He’s the perfect man to date for a couple weeks to prove to her boss that she’s not scared of feelings.

Before Jack and Hannah know it, their fake relationship starts to feel all too real – and neither of them can stand to lose each other.

The Bromance Bookclub by Lyssa Kay Adams @berkleypub #bookreview

Happy Monday all!

Hope all is well in your neck of the woods! If you are looking for a fun romance that will put a smile on your face and give you the warm fuzzies., then I have got the book for you!

My Thoughts

The first rule of book club:
You don’t talk about book club.
 

Lyssa Kay Adams has hit a homerun with this fun and clever story. This was a second chance romance with a unique angle. A married couple on the brink of divorce trying to heal (well at least Gavin was). Gavin is a big-time professional baseball player who is hitting grand slams on the field and striking out in the bedroom. After the game of his life Gavin discovers that his wife of three years Thea has been faking it. Gavin’s ego and pride are wounded so he moves into the guestroom and that ultimately leads to Thea asking him to leave. Gavin does not want a divorce, so after a night of drinking several of the best known men of Nashville including some of his teammates approach him with an answer to his problems. The Bromance Bookclub, A group of alpha men reading romance and learning the secrets of what women truly want.

Told from the perspectives of both Gavin and Thea, I have to admit I found Gavin the more empathetic character. I mean the guy was trying so hard. I just found him to be such an endearing character I loved how he was this big strong athlete and yet he was so vulnerable and insecure. I was thinking hey if Thea won’t take you back, I will! Thea was hard to understand, I know she had some major daddy issues and like to be the martyr, but she needed to accept some responsibility in the breakdown of this marriage. And her sister Liv did not help at all. A tiny niggle I had with this book was the age of the twins, I could never put my finger on how old these girls were supposed to be. Three? They acted much older than that, but I couldn’t make the math work any other way. Not a big deal, but it does seem to be a common problem in Books. The best part of the story really was bookclub itself, it was so hilarious listening to these men discuss romance books.
