You Deserve Each Other by Sarah Hogle - Book Review

You Deserve Each Other by Sarah Hogle
Publication date: April 7, 2020
My rating: 4 stars

My nerves are this incredible mix of awkward Gahh and fluttery Eeeee
My smile's so wide it's hurting my facial muscles, and I lie on the bed and kick my legs and squeal. 

*Internal squealing* 

Do you see those quotes over there? That was me reading this book. 

Listen, when I say this book was cute and funny, I don't mean that this book had cute and funny in it, I mean that this book was cute and funny. THE WHOLE BOOK. 

It wasn't "Aw, this is cute!" 
It was "JFKDSJKLJIEI cuteness overload." 

It wasn't "Haha, this is funny!" 

And that's coming from someone who is 90% of the time "meh" and "this was nice" wen it comes to contemporary romance. (I'm a fantasy romance lover through and through). And trust me, I've read many contemporary romances, so it's not like I'm just discovering the genre, it just never really... excites me? 
And that's obviously just me personally, for some reason it's harder for me to connect to contemporary. 

Of course, every now and then comes that book that makes me remember why I never give up on this genre, like Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover and The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren, which is why I keep on reading contemporary romance, to see out those type of books that set my heart on fire (and laughter). 

I think I've found a new favorite trope. 
The "I didn't get to truly know you/love you after we've already been together for a while" but in a funny sense, not the angsty sense. 
It was basically a love to hate to love second chance romance while they're still together the whole time, and I loved every second of it. 

Like seriously, it was HILARIOUS. Everything was hilarious. And Noamis dramatic thought process was GOLD and so relatable. *laughing just thinking about that scene with the flowers*. 

I'm telling you, even some fantasy tales pale in comparison to the battle of wills taking place in this book. And boy was it a battlefield. Literally, the book is described like a battle of hate and love, I'm not joking. 
And when Noami and Nichols finally started working together against the forces of darkness? 

Also, am I the only one who is kind of obsessed to know more about Zach? I guess I have a think for the crazies. 

But anyways... READ THIS BOOK. You must. 
It absorbed me so completely, made me so happy, helped me during a time of Anxiety. Sarah Hogle, thank you, I'm a fan 🧡 

(Just change it to snow instead of rain and it's like it was written for this book) 

I'm a miserable cynic (a newer development) and a dreamy romantic (always have been), and it's such a terrible combination that I don't know how to tolerate myself.
