Meet Naomi and Nicholas: the Perfect Couple.
Their glorious, lavish wedding is coming up in three short months . . . and they are utterly, miserably sick of each other.
Unfortunately, whoever backs out first will end up bearing the brunt of the wedding bill. When Naomi finds out that Nicholas has been feigning contentment too, the two of them go head-to-head in a battle of sabotage, pranks, and all-out emotional warfare to see who can annoy the other into surrendering first.
Now that they have nothing to lose, they’re finally being themselves. In fact, they’re having so much fun getting on each other’s nerves that it starts to feel like something else entirely…
This book is brilliant, I enjoyed it so much and it has quickly become a firm favourite. I became completely absorbed in the storyline and the characters and didn’t stop until I’d finished. It is so compelling and hilariously funny and I barely paused for breath.
Naomi and Nicholas are the perfect couple on social media and in public, but in reality their life is a little more complicated. They are due to get married on 26 January but their relationship has lost its spark and neither wants to be the one to end it. A game of cat and mouse ensues, they try to goad each other and play silly childish pranks to coerce each other into ending the relationship. I was totally rooting for them and their relationship all the way through the storyline.
The characters felt real and I connected with all of them, apart from Deborah who really was a nightmare potential mother in law. The main characters in particular are a joy to read about and I adored them. The humour is top notch and I loved the wit and the little quips in their dialogue and crazy bickering, it’s been quite some time since a book made me laugh so much. The combination of humour and romance is perfectly balanced, Nicholas is so droll and this combined with Naomi’s dry sense of humour and sparks flew and both of them together was hugely entertaining and the banter was delightful. Lovers-to-enemies-to-lovers, is such a refreshing change and an interesting spin on the enemies-to-lovers trope.
I definitely need to read more of this author’s books, I adored her writing style. I had so much fun reading this and I immediately wanted to read it again when I’d finished!
