Title: I Take You
Author: Elia Kennedy
Category/Genre: Adult Women's Fiction
My Star Rating: 1/5
Meet Lily Wilder: New Yorker, lawyer extraordinaire, blushing bride. And totally incapable of being faithful to one man.
Lily’s fiancé 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.
I don't think I've ever given a one star review before, and I know I've never posted a review for one. I received this novel for free from Blogging For Books in exchange for a honest review, so I will make good and provide one.
I got all the way to page nine before having to put this one down. By that time, the main character (who is about to get married the next DAY) has made out with one random guy at the bar and started to have sex with a co-worker. To me, there is nothing even remotely entertaining about infidelity. It's despicable and horrible and it makes me sick to my stomach to even read about it (yes, these are the ramblings on someone who has been on the wrong side of the aisle when it comes to this, but I think my point is still valid.). This isn't an issue about gender role-reversal to me; male or female, there is something seriously wrong with you if you are able to do these things to someone you supposedly care about, and I find the carefree and breezy approach to this subject that this author laid out in this book to be upsetting. Did not finish. Not even close.
