Hi again readers,
Today, I'm reviewing Andie J. Christopher's Not the Girl You Marry.
Not the Girl You Marry by Andie J. Christopher
Jack Nolan is a gentleman, a journalist, and unlucky in love. His viral success has branded him as the how-to guy for a buzzy, internet media company despite wanting nothing more than to cover hard-hitting politics. Fed up with his fluffy articles and the app-based dating scene, Jack strikes a deal with his boss to write a final piece: How to Lose a Girl. But it's easier said than done when the girl he meets is Hannah Mayfield, and he's not sure he wants her to dump him.
Hannah is an extremely successful event planner who's focused on climbing the career ladder. Her firm is one of the most prestigious in the city, and she's determined to secure her next promotion. But Hannah has a bit of an image problem. She needs to show her boss that she has range, including planning dreaded, romantic weddings. Enter Jack. He’s the perfect man to date for a couple weeks to prove to her boss that she’s not scared of feelings.
But before Jack and Hannah know it, their fake relationship starts to feel all too real—and neither of them can stand to lose each other.
Not the Girl You Marry is cute, modern, and even funny. The only problem? It's not exactly memorable.
Andie J. Christopher did a wonderful job at modernizing How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, but her characters—Hannah and Jack—might not be a pair that you'll remember after reading the next ten rom-coms on your bedside stack.
Despite not being extremely memorable, Not the Girl You Marry is a good pick for readers looking for a light, adorable, and modern romance.
Hannah is ambitious, confident, and sexy, while Jack is passionate and hardworking. Their love story may be flawed and imperfect, but it's worth giving a try.
