YOU DESERVE EACH OTHER by Sarah Hogle

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.

Micky’s 5 star review

Headlines:
Snicker, giggle, howl on the regular
War of the Roses
Hate to love has never been so sweet

I burnt the midnight oil to finish this one because I just could not leave it with a few chapters left. You Deserve Each Other was unputdownable and so very satisfying. It brought beautiful escapism to my life, with light and deep in equal parts.

I adored the two main characters, Nicholas and Naomi and I even loved reading about the evil mother-in-law to be. Nicholas was such an awful mother’s boy, it was both hard and incredibly funny to read those aspects. Naomi eventually made use of this part of his life and character to wage a war of the Roses.

I have an abundance of odious fiance. How am I going to get rid of him? I cannot marry this mama’s boy.

The house move brought unexpected fun to the story. I didn’t see where that was going until after but I really loved visualising their house, the land and the pond. The pond <insert many laughing emojis here, winky face>.

The read came with lows and highs and the highs were often accompanied by my snigger-snort. The escapades these two went to, to get the other to dislike them while in reality chemistry was building. This was sloooow-burn territory folks, so buckle in for some delayed sparks.

Expect high jinks, hate and love in percentages and a crescendo of feelings. Also, plan this read in for a full day of uninterruption or you will end up like me, staying up on a school night and sporting matchstick eyes the next morning. Either way, you won’t regret it.

Thank you to Piatkus, Little Brown UK for the review copy.
