Rom com are ok on the screen and I think that’s where they need to stay. This was an ordinary boy next door type book where girl and boy are friends since kids grow just being friends then fall in love. Been there done that. The writing was good just needed something different. There are too many books like this.

Sophie Steinbeck's friend, Asha, hires wedding objector, Max to stop Sophie from marrying Stuart, who has been cheating on her. It works so well, that when Max comes for his money, Sophie and Asha invite in to celebrate with them. Sophie learns more about what it takes to be an objector, so when Max calls her with a wedding objector opportunity, Sophie agrees to accompany him to the wedding, and they both have so much fun that they start to become friends. The more weddings they attend, the closer they become, so when Sophie declares that doesn't believe in love and Max states that he's not interested in a relationship they think they are safe, but their chemistry is undeniable.

Happily Never After is such a fun romance with an unusual set up. Sophie comes off as a little unlikable at times but redeems herself by the end of the book, and it's clear that there couldn't be any couple more suited for one another. Many laugh out loud moments populate the narrative as we slowly get to know the characters through their banter. The pacing of the plot is extremely well done, developing a natural progression of the romance. The story would have benefited from more time spent on the hilarious roommates, Larry and Rose. Also, the ex-fiances, Stuart and Lily are underdeveloped. Overall, however, Happily Never After is a page turning, entertaining read.

"Better Than the Movies" was a cute rom-com suitable for all ages. Although the female protagonist annoyed me, I adored Wes, her next-door neighbour. While the plot was predictable, the storyline was cute and the banter amusing putting a smile on my face most of the time as I read it. A sweet read.
