You Deserve Each Other

Naomi Westfield has the perfect fiancé: Nicholas Rose holds doors open for her, remembers her restaurant orders, and comes from the kind of upstanding society family any bride would love to be a part of. They never fight. They're preparing for their lavish wedding that's three months away. And she is miserably and utterly sick of him.

Naomi wants out, but there's a catch:

Four lets make a party to congratulate we have a new evil-genius, sarcastic writer in the town who knows how to write a great mean romantic comedy stars!!!

I think promoting this book as a great choice for the fans of Hating Games might be wrong. Only thing there is similar with Sally Thornes book is HATINGpart. The characters are not colleagues. This is not slow burn enemies to lovers story. Theyre already engaged. This could be best defined as friends-lovers-enemies-friends-again lovers story.

You Deserve Each Other is Sarah Hogle's debut novel and it blew me I away! I haven't laughed so hard or felt so much while reading in quiet a while. Definitely one of the best books I've read this year.

Naomi is in a rut. She's engaged, but half the time she doesn't even know if she wants to be with her fiancé anymore. Too bad the wedding planning is so far along, or else she'd probably call it quits. Her mother-in-law to be is a nightmare and she's finding it hard to tell if her fiancé

Gah this book.
It starts off with Naomi really despising her fiancee and honestly, she's not the best character. She's self absorbed, and spiteful.
So from the beginning I thought I would hate this book because of that but she grows, she learns to care and love and gah by the end I loved it.
This book is about a couple that falls out of love and into hate and works on loving each other again and it was so much fun to read!
A second chance lovers-to-enemies-to - lovers story about being honest and communicating with your partner when you're in a relationship.

I have to be honest here, I really disliked the first half of this book! I picked it up for a romantic read for valentines day, but it made me feel bitter and annoyed, and I almost DNFed it multiple times. I stuck with it because it had so many glowing reviews, and luckily it did get better in the second half of the book.
The reason that I hated the first half

For fans of The Hating Game...

Well they called and I'm here to answer
I read this book three times in one week. I think that should tell you something. I hope that something is: PICK UP THIS BOOK!!!

This book is marketed for fans of The Hating Game by Sally Thorne.

And they are so right because this book is like The Hating Game turned up to eleven! Naomi and Nicholas were hilarious in their efforts to mess with each other. The length they went to were both juvenile and petty and I loved every second of it!

Mixed in with all their pranks and not so subtle jabs at each

Many thanks to Putnam Books for the free copy in exchange for an honest review

okay, i just want to make it clear what this book is about...

it's about a couple about to get married but they hate each other and they're going to try to get the other to leave because whoever leaves has to pay the wedding bill... so they prank each other and are awful to each other

Thank you NetGalley and G.P. Putnam's Sons for this ARC. All thoughts and opinions are mine.

How great would it be,
to get a second chance?

Once upon a blue moon, I read romance books like they were potato chips and I was suffering from a deficiency. Over time, other genres trickled into my preferences list, and reading romance books stopped being so much about quantity and more about quality.

I either became jaded, or I lost the rose-tinted glasses. In either case,
I wavered a bit in the actual ranking of this read because despite how much this made me laugh, moreso in the latter half but even in the beginning, this wasn't always a.. nice story. This enemies-to-lovers (who-were-already-lovers aka affianced) romance errs very much on the side of OTT. Sometimes ridiculous, sometimes mean, sometimes (mostly) immature. There's a definite almost-real-hate edge to this and that makes it hard to read, makes the characters hard to like, even as you can see, ...more

Talk about putting your emotions through the absolute wringer. This novel frayed my nerves, keeping me on a razor sharp line between hope and despair. It is funny, this story. I'd go so far as to say that it's hilarious. It's superbly smart. Quick. Sharp. But that humor comes at the expense of the imminent demise of a relationship as an engaged couple engages in a turbulent war of roses. Their relentless attempts at sabotaging their relationship in order to get the other to break things off ...more

An honest depiction of how dishonesty in a relationship can be its undoing. You Deserve Each Other is a sharp and witty look at how relationships take work to succeed, and how being true to yourself and each other is at the very core of a romantic connection. Earthy, authentic, and laugh out loud funny, I read this in one sitting. A refreshing and unputdownable debut!

Finished this in less than 12 hours. This is hate-to-love on steroids and honestly I couldnt have asked for anything better. I cant wait for Sarah Hogle to write more books. ...more

This was such a great debut for Sarah Hogle!!! I went into this with equal parts intrigued and wary. I am not a fan of a lot of angst or the snippy back and forth. It gives me real anxiety. I am so glad I gave this a chance. Naomi's crazy was so funny and real. And with ALL the interaction between her and Nicholas you could feel the love under al the antics. We get to see them discover each other again and become so much stronger for it. Loved it!!
I received a copy of this title via NetGalley. It does not impact my review.

The cute cover and the reference to The Hating Game definitely drew me to You Deserve Each Other. Unfortunately, it was just not for me.

Naomi has to be one of the most unlikable characters I have ever read. For about the first 60% of the book I really thought shed be better suited as the narcissistic villain in a psychological thriller rather than the heroine in a Romance. She is just so, so awful and self-centered. She

Really dont want to review this one for you guys. It was delightful to go in with no expectations.

I laughed. I got teary. I laughed til I got teary. Theres an edge to this book. The mean is real - the cartoony pranks you expect from a rom com with an honesty that makes them verge on uncomfortable. It flirts with Over the Top. Its almost silly and almost horribly mean.

I think the underlying sweetness both saves it and makes it more excruciating. All of that

I nearly bailed on this enemies-to-lovers romance as the female lead was so obnoxious, and we stayed right in her POV. But the writing grabbed me, and the glimmers of humor kept me there.

I was so very glad I stuck to it. Naomi and Nicholas started out in love (more in lust, is implied) but non-communication and missed cues begin to have a toxic effect. Add in Naomi living inside her head and encouraging her own worst tendencies as she begins a campaign to get Nicholas to dump her first (the

This was wonderful, dramatic, romantic, and every other positive adjective I can think of. Naomi & Nicholas were quite the pair and I loves seeing them reconnect. The story was equally filled with humor and heart that kept you engaged. I loved the small town feel with some of the quirky side characters. The world felt full and real - if a bit exaggerated at times, but that's the fun part, right.

Wow okay you dont have to do that to my heart but ok

** Thank you Netgalley for sending me this arc in exchange for an honest review **

This book is not your typical romance. It's not even your typical enemies to lovers romance. This is a lovers to enemies to friends to lovers romance. And after reading this, I don't know why there aren't more like it.

The first half of this book, it was hard to imagine how this couple once loved each other, why they loved each other, and how it was possible to fix
5/5 stars

You Deserve Each Other is definitely going into my personal hall of fame of books that I will tell everyone to read because it was just that good.

It was fun to read and it had that romcom quality that I always appreciate and look for in a romance book.
The the characters dynamic and characters themselves were great and the development of their relationship felt organic with the entire story.

you know when you read a synopsis for a book and you briefly consider the idea that there must be a god out there because they have clearly responded to your very specific and admittedly slightly niche reading tastes

literally this exact plot is precisely the book I always knew I wanted but thought I would have to write myself in order to get it

"I know in my leaf-ogling, beanie-loving, pumpkin-gorging soul that I'd be a basic bitch even if I had neutral undertones"

A hilarious contemporary romance that will have readers cackling as they turn the pages.

Naomi Westfield and Nicholas Rose seem like the perfect couple, they post cute pictures on Instagram and tag each-other on sappy Facebook posts. But behind the doors of their new home, they simmer in heated silence. With their wedding in less than three

If I had the emotional capacity to cry right nowits 4:48 and my device is on 20%I would be. Do you guys ever read a book thats just. Its just everything you want it to be, everything you need it to be? Because thats what You Deserve Each Other felt like.

Oooh I am so happy right now. So giddy and full of light and fluffy emotions. This is one of the best rom coms I have ever readand one of the funniest too! Its so full of love and amazing characters and the humour is just chefs kiss. I cackled

Alright, listen up, folks, because Id like to make a public service announcement: READ THIS BOOK.

If I could, I would purchase thousands of copies and just run around saying, You get a copy, and you get a copy, and you get a copy, everybody gets a copy! like a rom-com Oprah. (Actually, can we make that a thing? Id love that job.)

This debut has everything, and I mean everything, that my rom-com loving heart could ever ask for. Banter? Chemistry? Humor? Feels? Slow burn? Check, check,
As soon as I read the synopsis for this on Goodreads, I was game to read what I believed would become my next favorite romance. I was sure this would be a 5-star read, this book hooked me in, and I started off loving it. I loved how this was a unique take on the enemies to lovers trope, given that it existed in an already engaged couple. I found it easy to sympathize with both Naomi and Nicholas as they both had valid points as to why they felt their relationship was falling apart. I was ...more
