This book is a riot! I found myself laughing, frowning, and wincing throughout the entire book. Eliza Kennedy, the author of I Take You has to be a fun person to be around.
The personalities are unbelievably real in an unreal sort of way! The story is about Lily Wilder, a party girl with an awful history of men, alcohol, drugs, and promiscuity. She's an amazing junior lawyer, a job she loves, but when a deposition that pretty much derails her wedding plans rises, things change for her. Her career is threatened, a dark secret presses with her future mother-in-law is out for blood!
If my brief summary doesn't strike your interest, I don't know what will! Seriously. I loved and hated this book. I was conflicted! The book was hilarious with its Star Wars references and snarky jokes, but I don't like the extreme drinking, the cocaine and molly- then pile on attempting to sleep with her fiancé's best friend (and best man) and walking in on her parents making out, totally in the nude... AND she watched them with a monologue that was completely hilarious, I'm ashamed to admit. This book made me laugh, gasp, choke, and wince in shame.
The thing is, it's written in a voice that's relatable and filled with thoughts that you know run through your own mind too! I know I did. The thing is, she's impetuous and promiscuous and self-destructive... She's like a train wreck that you can't help but watch, while munching on popcorn and a glass of tea! You'll have to read it yourself to find out if she still marries the adorable archeologist or not but know, this novel is a force that, though ridiculous, tickles you to the core!
I enjoyed reading I Take You. Eliza Kennedy is a cool author, but I sure hope all of her books aren't filled with so much chaotic activity. I know a book needs conflict, but I don't know if I can handle another Lily.
On to the next book!!📚
