Goodreads Book Blurb:
***Thanks to NetGalley and Lake Union Publishing for an eARC of this book. The following review is my honest reflection on the text provided.
For the Love of Friends is a light, easy read with surprising maturity.
98% of this plot is entirely predictable. We all know what to expect going into a story about demanding brides and an anonymous blog… Not to mention the whole ‘I’m attracted to you, but we should just be friends who talk and hang out constantly‘ thing. So by around the halfway point, I started to consider skipping the rest of the book – not because I wasn’t enjoying it, but because I knew where it was going. I’m glad I kept reading, though. Because when everything blows up – exactly the way you know it will – Lily’s reactions are so refreshing and honest. It’s so nice to have a realistic response to a crazy situation – it made the whole story that much more enjoyable.
So while I’m sure you’ll be able to predict what happens here, I’d still recommend For the Love of Friends. The narrative is lighthearted with unexpected warmth and a welcome perspective on some very familiar tropes.
