Goodreads Book Blurb:
***Thanks to NetGalley and Bookouture for an eARC of this book. The following review is my honest reflection on the text provided.
I loved this book! It was a lighthearted rom-com balanced with some deep issues and serious personal growth. Tackling infertility, IVF, and addiction without stigma or shame, it was definitely not what I was expecting.
James is a little predictable with his rough childhood forcing him to set hard rules for his adult life regarding his relationships, both romantic and familial. Recognising this from the beginning, rather than rolling my eyes at the cliché, Lovett’s writing had me hooked, wanting to know how she was going to bring out the predictable change. Cassie is almost perfect from the beginning but it’s her heart and honesty that won me over. She’s honest with herself and her friends and family and her level of self-awareness is wonderful. It was refreshing to read a book about an accomplished, successful woman making decisions after she thought through her options and was honest with herself. She didn’t rush into things without thought but also didn’t deny herself experiences, even if she was aware they wouldn’t end the way she wanted them to. She didn’t rush into things without thought but she also didn’t deny herself experiences, even if she was aware they wouldn’t end the way she wanted them to. She went into relationships and situations with her eyes open, ready to embrace all aspects involved.
The whole book was well-written and the story flowed easily. I couldn’t put The House Swap down and would readily recommend it to any chick lit/contemporary romance fans, or just anyone who loves a good story.
