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.
Naomi Westfield is engaged to the perfect guy and planning the perfect wedding. She should be blissfully happy, right? Wrong.
She’s miserable. She’s tired of being utterly invisible to her fiancé. It seems that he would rather spend the day shoveling his parent’s driveway than spending time with her. It would be better for both of them if they called everything off and went their sperate ways. But she’s not going to be the one that ends it.
If everything goes as she plans, he’ll throw in the towel and she’ll be the wronged party. Maybe someday soon she’ll find love again. And maybe she won’t even have to look very far.
This is what happens when you date a guy for eleven months, then get engaged six hours before finally moving in together and learning who the other person truly is on a day-to-day basis. Signing up for Boyfriend Nicholas and inheriting Fiancé Nicholas later on was some legitimate bait-and-switch business, let me tell you. I thought I’d won big-time when I landed him, but after sliding a ring onto my finger he relegated me to Eternal Second Place.
Not only is Nicholas Rose a successful dentist from a well to do family but he’s also unfairly easy on the eyes. His greatest flaw is that he can’t seem to ever say no to his overbearing mother.
She’s taken it upon herself to plan every aspect of the upcoming wedding while gleefully ignoring any input from the bride to be. But if he and Naomi can’t find a way to salvage their tattered relationship, there won’t be any nuptials to celebrate.
He’s going to pull out all the stops to show Naomi that they belong together including ditching his beloved khakis for jeans and their city rental for a house in the woods. Because when you finally find your one true love, you never let them go.
Nicholas absorbs my attention so fully that I know I’ll never forget how this feels. It’s a peace and a comfort I haven’t been able to find anywhere. It’s how my heart pounds so loud I’m certain he can hear it. It’s how his closeness makes my knees weak, and his skin brushing mine jolts me like a spray of hot sparks. It’s how he knows me better than anyone else, and I never meant for him to.
On the surface, You Deserve Each Other appears to be the wittiest kind of Rom Com. But hidden within the pages is a deeply satisfying love story. Sarah Hogle wraps sharp wit with tender passion and the result is a thoroughly enjoyable reading experience.
The push and pull between Nicholas and Naomi is pitch perfect and holds readers enraptured to the very end. Just be prepared to swoon for days…
