Book Review – No, We Can’t Be Friends by Sophie Ranald @SophieRanald @bookouture #BookReview #BooksOnTour #contemporary

Many thanks to publisher Bookouture for my spot on this Blog Tour.

Sophie Ranald’s previous book was mostly chic-lit and vlong-centric, something which I knew nothing about. I hoped this would be more than that. And boy, was I left on my arse. This was SIMPLY BRILLIANT.

Sloane was married to Myles. She not only looked after her home but also was a partner in her company. One day she saw something which got her wife-y antennae go all tingly. And secrets were revealed. Then came her realizations and decisions.

My third book by this author, and I found this one to be the best. The author’s writing showed me depths, which were damn perfect. They dipped and flowed with the story. This was completely Sloane’s story. And she was so real. Though at times, I did want to scream at her face – Don’t trust anyone.

Sloane’s journey was so well depicted from a giddy girl in love to a woman who loved herself, put herself first. I loved her, I could see shades of myself in her. Sophie Ranald had imbibed this story with a lot of emotions, the characters were varied and so lovable, barring some.

Friendships new and old were explored. Decisions made were not perfect, but I could understand the situation so well. I have been on some of them. This was one of my best books in this genre.

I finished the book at 3 40 am and I was so happy that I lost my hours of sleep over this book. One of my great midnight reads.

I received a free ARC from NetGalley and publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

All my reviews can be read here

Everyone knows a girl like Sloane. She was always The Single One. She never brought a plus-one to weddings. She was the woman you’d set up with your single cousin. She joined ballroom dancing classes to meet men and was the queen of online dating.

But then she met Myles. Perfect Myles, with denim-blue eyes and a dazzling smile that melted her insides. She’d finally found The One.

Except she didn’t imagine that Myles’s idea of Happy Ever After would include Sloane battling an overflowing laundry basket, buying birthday cards for his family, and ironing his Calvin Klein underpants.

Then Sloane finds out that Myles has a secret.

The fairy tale is well and truly over. Her heart is blown to smithereens. Eating her weight in Ben & Jerry’s and large Meat Feast pizzas can only get Sloane so far before she has to make a decision… Can she learn to love herself more than she loved the love of her life?
