Synopsis from Goodreads.com:

What is Clare Wingate doing? One minute she’s suffering in a pretty-in-pink gown she’ll never wear again, and the next thing she knows it’s morning…and she has the nastiest hangover of her life.

To make matters worse, she’s wearing nothing but a spritz of Escada and lying next to Sebastian Vaughan…her girlhood crush turned sexy, globe-hopping journalist. Somewhere between the toast and the toss of the bouquet she’d gotten herself into a whole lot of trouble.

Clare had the right to go wild – after all, she’d been knocked off her dyed-to-match shoes after finding her own fiance in a compromising position with the washing machine repairman. Clearly her society wedding is off.

But Sebastian pushed all the wrong buttons – and some of the right ones, too. Clare is in no mood for love – not even for lust – and wants to forget about Sebastian and his six-pack abs ASAP. But he isn’t in the mood to go away, and his kiss is impossible to forget.

Book Review: I Take You: A Novel by Eliza Kennedy

itakeyou

Synopsis from Goodreads.com:

Brilliantly executed and endlessly funny, this page-turning debut showcases one of the most winning, irrepressible voices since Helen Fielding’s Bridget Jones.
“I’m getting married.”
“He’s perfect!”
“It’s a disaster.”
Meet Lily Wilder–New Yorker, lawyer and the luckiest woman in the world. She has a dream job, friends who adore her, a family full of charismatic and loving women, and a total catch of a fiance.
Also? She has “no” business getting married.
Lily’s fiance Will is a brilliant, handsome archaeologist. Lily is sassy, impulsive, fond of a good drink (or five) and completely incapable of being faithful to just one man. Lily likes Will, but does she love him? Will loves Lily, but does he really know her? As the wedding approaches, Lily’s nights–and mornings, and afternoons–of booze, laughter and questionable decisions become a growing reminder that the happiest day of her life might turn out to be her worst mistake yet.
“Bridget Jones’s Diary” meets “Where’d You Go, Bernadette” in this joyous and ribald debut, introducing a fabulously self-assured protagonist whose choices raise fresh questions about gender politics, monogamy and the true meaning of fidelity.
