#BookReview You Again? by Nick Spalding

The Blurb

From the bestselling author of Dumped, Actually comes a hilarious, heartfelt story about marriage, divorce and what the hell happens next.

Amy and Joel’s honeymoon in the Maldives was the perfect week of love, sun, sex and a free minibar…but unfortunately, it was also the high point of a marriage that quickly descended into an absolute disaster zone.

Eight years on, they’re back in paradise, trying to recreate the magic with new partners. What a crying shame they’ve picked the same week to do it…

Trapped together on an island small enough to spit across with the wind behind you, Amy and Joel pick up right where they left off: at total loggerheads. And so begins a hideous week of rivalry, one-upmanship and score-settling—as each tries to prove they’ve now comprehensively won at life.

The thing is, hurt and pain are strongest where there was once love. And what if being back in this island paradise, with all its wonderful memories, sets sparks flying in more ways than one?

My Thoughts

I really like Spalding’s style of writing and sense of humour having read quite a few of his books and so I was excited when my Netgalley request for ‘You Again?’ was accepted. The story switches between Amy and Joel’s point of view, which I enjoyed as it allows the reader to find out more about the characters and get into their head a little. I definitely did not like Amy at the beginning but as the story progressed I warmed to her. But I really need to mention Ray, Amy’s fiancé, as he was by far the most likeable, insightful and mature character. I just loved him!

I can’t deny that ‘You Again?’ is extremely predictable but I don’t think it is meant to anything else. It is full of humour and is an easy and highly enjoyable read. Another triumph for Nick Spalding!
