Hi everyone 🙂
Hope you are all well and that you enjoyed my last review.
The book I have been reading recently is by the lovely Giovanna Fletcher “You’re the one that I want”.
Without giving to much away because I think it will spoil it for you, the story follows three friends Maddy, Robert and Ben who have been best friends since they where in primary school. But what happens when feelings start to come into play? will this jeopardise their friendship and ruin everything?
This is the third book I have read of Giovanna’s and obviously I have read the two novellas aswell.
I really enjoyed reading this book even if it did take me a couple of chapters to get into the story.
It was a really light hearted read, full of drama, romance, friendship laughter, twists and turns and overall a lovely, fun read.
I loved Giovanna’s writing style, the concept of the story I found very different to other Chic Lits that I have read previous.
One of my favourite parts of the book was how it went from Maddy, Robert and Ben being young children and not really having a care in the world to them going through the teenage years and dealing with all the dramas and obstacles of becoming an adult.
Talking of Maddy, Robert and Ben who are the three main characters through out the story. They were very different yet very similar I found.
Maddy was such a lovely character, I loved her innocents and how Robert and Ben protected her. In parts though I did feel really sorry for her and with all the drama and emotions she went through.
Ben I completely fell in love with from the very beginning and if I’m honest I think he was my favourite character out of the whole story. You wanted him to be you best friend and also take care of him. Like Maddy I felt really sorry for Ben and just wanted to give him a big hug.
Robert was your typical “Jack the Lad” type of character. Boys wanted to be him and be his friend and girls wanted to go out with him. I loved how he didn’t really have a care in the world, but again I felt sorry for him also in some parts of the story because in places he was completely oblivious to what was going on around him.
I would definitely recommend that you read this book and like I said at the beginning I did find it difficult to get into but stick with it and you will get completely absorbed in the complicated yet perfect friendship of Maddy, Ben and Robert.
On that note I hope you have enjoyed this review.
I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars
