"You mistake love. Do you think it has to have a future in order to matter, but it doesn’t. It’s the only thing that does not need to be come at all. It matters only insofar as it exists. Here. Now. Love doesn’t require a future."
Dannie is a planner. Everything in her life is meticulously mapped out—the job she wants at the law firm she wants, her dream apartment in NYC, when she and her boyfriend will get engaged and married. ...more
Even the husband dearest who is normally coolest, mimic-less Scorpio man worried about me and cover my face with trash bag so he stopped screaming when he was looking at me!
After I finished this book, I cried so much! I couldn’t help myself. Honestly my friends shaped my life and made me who I am more than my own family. They ...more
Couldn't put this one down!
Although I'm not a huge romance reader, every now and then a book comes along that just warms (and breaks) my heart.
After reading the intriguing synopsis, I knew I wanted to read this one and find out just what In Five Years was all about.
Dannie is a Manhattan lawyer with a five year plan (I love that!). She has a wonderful career, boyfriend, New York life, BUTwho is this man in her dreams? He seems so alive and "real" to her, but he is not in her five year ...more

"Where do you see yourself in five years?" is the quintessential interview question that most of us are required to BS our way through when getting our first job. Dannie, on the brink of getting her dream job, answers this question as well in an interview at the very beginning of the book. Things are going swell for Dannie: she has the dream boyfriend, a ritzy Manhattan lifestyle, and if she gets her position at this law firm, the perfect ...more
I went into this book expecting a sweeping love story for the ages, one with a love triangle that would really feel heart wrenching and give me all those conflicted feels.
What I got was a love rhombus?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
A very weird and very strange love rhombus.
Because for so much of this book we knew the ending...
We knew the MC would end up in flagrante delicto with this guy who wasn't ...more
Many thanks to Netgalley and Atria Books for the chance to read this novel early.
It's no secret I love mindbending books that play with the concept of time. As soon as I read the blurb for this one, I knew I would be bumping it to the top of my to be read list. I'm so glad I did because this book was very nearly perfect and not what I was expecting at all.
The blurb for In Five Years is a little misleading, but I'm actually glad it was. Oftentimes the blurbs ...more
Love doesn’t require a future.
This is most likely my final review of the year and although I failed by leaving more than 30 books on my “Currently Reading” shelf (which were 100% already read and only left there to serve as reminders of my failure to post things in a timely fashion), I can at least finish up the decade as a rightreader for once and with a glowing recommendation for In Five Years when it gets released this Spring.
This started well , it has a great premise and I was intrigued to see how this will go!I find it unique and brilliant and I was expected to find an emotional read but for me it wasn't!I still loved it and I find myself hooked but I didn't love it as much as I wannted!
This is about love and friendship, I have to say that the main heroine was ok for me, I couldn't connect with her so I couldn't empathise her either.
Overall, it was a great read if you are looking for something ...more
Dannie becomes unsettled after having a dream that takes place ...more
Oh how I love Rebecca Serle. I love her ability to make us question and ask "what if." In Five Years tugged at my heart strings. Dannie Cohan has played by the rules and achieved every goal she has set for herself. She's on the path to becoming partner at a prestigious law firm, she has an incredibly thoughtful fiancee, and she has the support of a loving family and best friend. ...more
What would you do if you had a brief glimpse into the future and saw that you were living a completely different life than ...more
A brief glimpse into the future rocks Dannie’s carefully crafted world. She attempts to navigate life after this glimpse even though she’s shaken to the core. This is a moving story about life, love, and loss. I loved it and read it in one sitting! The characters are well rounded, the plot moves along nicely, and the author threw some well timed twists into the storyline.
Skip the synopsis and reviews, just go into this one ...more
This book will really pull on your emotions. I viewed this more as a woman's fiction story instead of a romance. Only because it wasn't the romance that was the draw for me this time. Dannie's character is what really had me pulled into this story. It's a well written story. The characters are everyday people with such different personalities. The characters and the story line grab you and take you into their world. You laugh, cry and weep with them and live every event like it's your ...more
This book had vibes of Sex and the City, with a little bit of smut, but a lot of friendship. I really loved the writing style and loved seeing more of the city-life of ...more
Where do you see yourself in 5 years? The age old question almost everyone has asked or answered in their lifetime.
Dannie has her life planned out to a T, and so far, everything is going accordingly; the law career, the fiancé, the house.... But what happens when a wrench is thrown in your 5-year plan? Where do you pick up? Where are you left off? What if you have a dream of something unfathomable?
I immediately was immersed in this story from the very first few chapters. it ...more
Everything is going to plan in Dannie’s life, she’s engaged to the perfect man who’s plans align with hers and she has just interviewed for her dream job in a top form in New York City when she has a dream of herself 5 years in the future with a man that isn’t her fiancé.
I enjoyed how tightly this book was written. It didn’t meander off point. The friendship between Dannie and Bella was explored and I was constantly asking myself where this story would go. Opposites do attract and these ladies couldn’t be more different. What would be a satisfactory ending? The ending wasn’t what I ...more
