Judging a book by its cover is one of my unfortunate prejudices, and if you judge this book by its cover you’d expect this to be light and fun romcom. But within its pages, you would find something much deeper than that. This is the story of a Hollywood couple who have been long divorced, when they are cast in a movie together they need to confront the truth of their split and their feelings for one another.
The thing I really love about this pair of authors is they write entirely relatable characters. Within a few pages you can put yourself right into the shoes of both main characters, even though they are quirky celebrities. We see the glamour of their lives but we also see beneath the facade where they have to deal with some serious mental health issues. I appreciated the delicacy with which this was handled.
As a child of divorce, I really valued the way that the two main characters took their children into account with all of their decisions. It’s nice to see a romcom with two characters who have their lives together as individuals and were looking for a healthy way to combine their lives.
Thank you to the author for providing me with a copy of this book. All opinions above are my own.
