it was amazing

Breaking The Rules by Cat Lavoie follows twenty-seven year old Roxy Rule. When her best friend and roommate, Ollie, accepts an exciting new job overseas designing green architecture, she expects their relationship to continue as it’s always been, but that all changes when they share a heart-stopping kiss moments before his departure. Overcome with mixed emotions, she fights the urge to over analyze the situation and resumes back to her normal life in New York City, working a dead end job, and creeping further and further away from her own dreams of becoming a professional chef. Whilst things are definitely more complicated between her and Ollie (and her fiancé) since their shared kiss, Roxy is determined to forget all about it … although it is ALL she can think about. But, that isn’t the only drama that Roxy is in for as she hosts an unexpected family reunion at her tiny two-bedroom apartment and is surprised when her baby sister turns up pregnant. An unexpected twist and a surprising revelation lead to Roxy finally recognizing that she is in love with her best friend and that their kiss was more than just a kiss. Does he feel the same way? Or is she too late? Only time will tell.

Truly one of a kind…Lavoie masters the classic tale of love between the oldest of friends. Endearingly heartfelt and charming, Breaking the Rules is an absolute delight. I haven’t had this much fun reading a book in quite some time and was completely blown away by the complexity of the tale of Roxy Rule. The cast of characters are charming and surprisingly honest and I loved the dynamic between Roxy and Ollie and found myself rooting for them to be together since the kiss. This book kept me on my toes and I wondered the whole time what was going to end up happening … and Cat ties up all the ends nicely in a way that truly defines happily ever after. Overall, a fantastic book that I recommend to anyone looking for a great time, a fun adventure, and a hilarious cast of characters that are truly heartwarming. I guarantee that this one will not disappoint. A beautiful tale of love and friendship from a debut author. I can’t wait to see what Cat Lavoie comes out with next.
