What happens when two people decide to give themselves the year off…from each other?
Annie and Dan were the perfect couple. But now the not-so-newly weds feel more like flatmates than soul mates and wonder where all the fun and fireworks went …
When Annie lands her big break in a smash-hit show that’s heading for the bright lights of Broadway, she’s over the moon. Goodbye remote Irish village of Stickens, hello fabulous Big Apple! But with their relationship already on the rocks, how will Annie and Dan survive the distance?
They’re hitting the pause button on their marriage. One year off from each other – no strings attached, except a date to meet in twelve months at the Rockefeller Centre to decide their fate.
Will they both turn up? Or is it too late for love?
This is my very first book by the author. I was looking for a light, fluffy novel and I loved the cover (yes, I am shallow like that)
Also I read a review somewhere that said that the author is like Sophie Kinsella, whom I love. So I decided to give this book a try.
To be honest, I am not sure how I feel about this book. It was fun in parts and I liked the plot.
The MC, Annie is a good person and I liked her (at least in the beginning) and I felt really angry on her behalf.
Dan treated her badly and I could not understand him. Everybody in the story kept saying that he is perfect but I didn’t see anything perfect. He cares about everyone’s problems except Annie’s. Sorry, but that doesn’t seem perfect to me! In trying to save the world he completely ignores his wife.
Annie is like-able and sweet and I hated how she was treated in the book. Everyone seemed to walk over her and she let’s them.
She is constantly whining and is too hard on herself. It’s almost like she enjoys taking the blame.
JACK, hmmm…..I think he had potential to be swoon worthy but his role is very restricted.
The secondary characters, honestly, I didn’t like any one of them. All the characters are selfish and take Annie for granted. I actually wanted to slap some of them.
In terms of character development, the author excels. I liked how the characters were described. The writing is good. I really have no complaints regarding that.
I also like the constant references to real life things and people.
The beginning is good, the middle is dragged and the ending is rushed.
What do you think? Have you read any book by the author?
