The Flip is a smart, well-written, romantic comedy. A great deal of the humor in the book comes from the differences between the two main characters. Sonnet is determined and focused. Andrew not so much. Add to the mix that they were enemies during t ...more

“soon he’ll reach for her because she’s beautiful, and she’s his wife. If she cringes away from him because you’ve convinced her he isn’t good enough for her, how will that make him feel? If she submits to him out of obligation, how will that make her feel?

What if she approaches him and later is ashamed of wanting her own husband because he isn’t good enough for her? It’ll be hard for a marriage to last under those conditions. This isn’t what you want for Susan. Forgive him. Accept him. You’ll be doing your daughter a favor.”
