If you can’t love yourself, how are you going to love anybody else? A sweet, funny, feel-good page-turner about getting your groove back.
Nikki has it all—a great career, a gorgeous apartment and a boyfriend who is basically perfect. Okay, maybe things have grown a little too comfortable… but Nikki can handle it if it means keeping hot and wholesome Bron in her life.
Then the unthinkable happens and Bron walks out, leaving Nikki feeling like a total failure. They were supposed to have marriage and babies… but instead she’s got a guilty conscience, pissed-off parents who just want her to win him back and the realization that without “Nikki-and-Bron” to hide behind, she has no idea who she really is.
Desperate to pull her out of her slump, best friends Alicia and Chay embark on a mission to help Nikki find Nikki again… by tossing her straight back into the dating pool. There she meets Mike – sweet, laid-back and the first white guy she’s ever been with. There’s no doubt there’s some serious chemistry between them, but is becoming part of Mike’s world taking Nikki even further away from herself?
Then Bron unexpectedly comes knocking, just as things are getting serious with Mike, and the rule book goes right out the window…
This feel-good read about finding yourself is perfect for fans of How to Be Single, Just the Way I Amand Spoiler Alert.
The front cover actually pulled me to request this book and so I was thrilled when I got accepted this ARC. But unfortunately, this book wasn’t my cup of tea.
Nikki was dating Bron and thought she was having a perfect life with a perfect job. But Bron breaks up with her and Nikki is left alone questioning about her relationship. With the help of her friend Alicia, she enrolls into a yoga class where she meets cute Mike. Soon their friendship blossomed and turns to romance until Bron gets back to her life.
OK, initially, I did enjoy the book a little bit. The story is told from Nikki’s perspective and mainly, it talks about her friendship with her friends, how the romance developed between Mike and Nikki and her complicated relationship with her father, who seemed to want her to get back together with Bron. But as I reach in the middle, I felt like I was watching some really bad romantic comedy. First of all, why was her father hell bent and force Nikki to date Bron again? Too much dialogue and I found the story getting slightly boring but nonetheless I continued on. The ending, left me…well lower the rating. I did not like the ending at all. Despite these negative thoughts, I must say, I like the author’s writing style so I really hope she will continue writing better romance novels in future as I suppose she is capable to writing.
Overall, this is nothing compared to Take a Hint Dani Brown by Talia Hibbert–slightly boring, a Hallmark cheesy romance novel. Worth 2.5 stars.
