I Take You by Eliza Kennedy - Review

I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review

Published: May 24, 2016
Number of pages: 320
Genre: Fiction

Meet Lily Wilder: New Yorker, lawyer extraordinaire, blushing bride. And totally incapable of being faithful to one man.

Lily’s fiancĂ© Will is a brilliant, handsome archaeologist. Lily is sassy, impulsive, fond of a good drink (or five) and has no business getting married. Lily likes Will, but does she love him? Will loves Lily, but does he know her? As the wedding approaches, Lily’s nights—and mornings, and afternoons—of booze, laughter and questionable decisions become a growing reminder that the happiest day of her life might turn out to be her worst mistake yet.

Unapologetically sexy with the ribald humor of Bridesmaids, this joyously provocative debut introduces a self-assured protagonist you won’t soon forget.

What did I think of this book:
It has been awhile since I have read a book that I consider chick-lit, so I thought it would be a nice change of pace for me. Lily is what I consider a typical younger lawyer who can be a little wild at times and her life is an open book as she is not afraid to talk about anything. Just enjoying life. Part of this book takes place in Key West and I found myself remembering my own trip there and seeing many people enjoying themselves as Lily and her friends did. This was a very quick book to read. I must tell you that this book is not for everyone. Some people may not like it for all the sexual trists that are in this book. Things like this happen in everyday life and this was Lily's way of life. Now if you are a fan of chick-lit books then you will enjoy this book as I did.
