Everyone wants to be Tori Bailey. A straight-talking, bestselling author, she's inspired millions of women around the world with her self-help memoir and uplifting posts online. What's more, her perfect relationship with her long-term boyfriend is the envy of all their friends. But Tori isn't being honest. While everyone around her is getting engaged and having babies, Tori's boyfriend will barely look at her, let alone talk about marriage. And when her best friend Dee unexpectedly falls in love, suddenly Tori's in danger of being left behind. Tori's built a career out of telling women how to live their best life, but is she brave enough to admit it's not what she wants?


I didn’t know what to expect from this book and was pleasantly surprised by a completely insightful story about a woman in a difficult relationship struggling with the fact that her friends are moving along the ‘typical’ life plan of marriage and kids etc, whilst she isn’t. Alongside career stresses and that difficult second book problem. Easy to read but difficult content, I found this relatable and ultimately quite sad.

Rating: 5 / 5
