About this deal

Summary: “The whole time I’m reading a Mhairi McFarlane novel, I feel like a fist is squeezing my heart… she is so ridiculously talented.

Some of the issues I had are definitely based on my particular likes and dislikes so I would still definitely recommend reading this one!Roisin has moved on and eventually starts to see one of The Brian Club in a new light, someone that has been at odds with Joe for years. When Roisin watches the first episode of Joe’s new show, she’s horrified, hurt and disgusted to see that he’s taken something that she told him in private, and splashed it across for the world to see. It is pretty surprising and bad, and the book concludes in a hail of drama and confrontation: romantic, family, and adversarial. I liked that while she turns to Gina and Meredith for advice, and then to Matt for help, they all support her while also maintaining a realistic tone. I love her heroines, and I mostly loved Roisin even though she did things I didn’t always approve of or understand.

For new readers, their history unfolds in heartfelt diary entries that Lily addresses to Finding Nemo star Ellen DeGeneres as she considers how Atlas was a calming presence during her turbulent childhood.Between Us: The biggest rom com of 2023" hat meine Erwartungen übertroffen und verdient ohne Zweifel fünf Sterne. Now, he’s struck it big and isn’t afraid to shower his friends with money, however uncomfortable they may be.

Even after they have broken up, we then go on to spend the last 20% of the book mostly on Roisin still playing detective and trying to catch him out, which did make her seem rather too obsessive.com}: When Joe and Roisin join their group of friends for a weekend at a country house, it’s a triple celebration – a birthday, an engagement and the launch of Joe’s shiny new crime drama on TV. Even worse, the show is centered around a serial cheater, leaving Roisin to wonder just how much truth he’s written into this show. If you’re a tropey, smut reader… good lord please do not read this because I will actually cry if I see below 3 stars on a review for any of her books because this is notttt to your tastes. I found MAD ABOUT YOU to be a louder book than usual from this author and while this wasn't on the same decibel scale, it still felt a little bigger. The novel’s emphasis on female solidarity against gaslighting, narcissistic boyfriends might be cathartic for some readers, while the off-the-page sex between the eventual couple might not work for others.

I was struggling to find time to read this one with my final college semester starting but after midterms this week I just read as much as I could. But drama still follows, in the form of her dysfunctional family and the looming question: what other parts of her now-ex’s show are inspired by real events ?

I really enjoyed the detective part of the book and the sense of girl power and not women hating women which I actually appreciated. It can't be said that McFarlane disappoints because even in something a little less magical than the usual there's still a lot of good here. When she recognises her own past amongst it, she starts to ask herself just how much of it is true, particularly the cheating which the sex-addict MC (Joe’s self insert) involves himself in. Speaking of Joe, I liked that as readers we knew something wasn't adding up about his behaviour but you didn't know exactly what he was up to. and nobody felt too caricature-like, everything was just very messy in the way human beings do usually get.
