'There's no ceremony for friendship, is there?' 'Believe me, if I could marry you too, Tyler, I would.' Laura and Tyler are best friends and drinking buddies. But things are set to change when Laura gets engaged to the man of Tyler's nightmares. Can their friendship survive? Or will growing up mean growing apart?

Thoughts

This is a great book that delves into that problem that many people will have experienced - the drama that ensues when you are caught between your new romance and your close friend, particularly if they don’t get on very well. It’s highly engrossing, this story, and so well written that you can really get a sense of the characters and of the rollercoaster of swinging between sober and high/drunk. It brilliantly captures those moments where you say you’re going to be good and then wake up next day feeling rotten and remembering nothing. Some of it was kinda gross but that just made it more human - I did not want to stop reading.

Rating: 4 / 5
