When your nemesis also happens to be your fiancé, happily ever after becomes a lot more complicated in this wickedly funny, lovers-to-enemies-to-lovers romantic comedy debut.

Naomi Westfield has the perfect fiancé: Nicholas Rose holds doors open for her, remembers her restaurant orders, and comes from the kind of upstanding society family any bride would love to be a part of. They never fight. They're preparing for their lavish wedding that's three months away. And she is miserably and utterly sick of him.

Naomi wants out, but there's a catch: whoever ends the engagement will have to foot the nonrefundable wedding bill. When Naomi discovers that Nicholas, too, has been feigning contentment, the two of them go head-to-head in a battle of pranks, sabotage, and all-out emotional warfare.

But with the countdown looming to the wedding that may or may not come to pass, Naomi finds her resolve slipping. Because now that they have nothing to lose, they're finally being themselves--and having fun with the last person they expect: each other.

“The fact that he can look into my eyes and believe I am totally in love with him is proof that I’m a fantastic actress and he does not know everything about me, or even most things.“

Whoa! When I first started this I just had a giddy feeling that I’d fall in love and never be the same. The beginning had me thinking like Nicholas and Naomi had no chemistry whatsoever. So watching them rediscover themselves in silly shenanigans that would make even a non-romantic swoon, was such a pleasure!

That being said, I didn’t know how the author would make me fall in love with these two nimrods. What I didn’t tell you before was that the giddy feeling I had wore off fast. I could see no end to how awkward and stilted the relationship between Naomi and Nicholas was. They both had faults and were unwilling to address them properly. Instead, blaming the other for all the misgivings of their inevitable doom.

I loved how much I laughed throughout the book. It was funny. It was romantic. At times, it was infuriating! Best of all, it showed a beautiful story of two people finding each other again. Rom-com readers, brace yourselves for an epic romance for the ages!
