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.
Entertaining is the word that comes to my mind when I think of a word to describe Eliza Kennedy’s debut novel I Take You. This was a relatively fast and fun read. I can’t say that I particularly loved the main character, Lily, or that I agree with her lifestyle and choices, but I can’t deny the fact that this is a pretty funny book that had me laughing out loud at some parts. The ending left something to be desired, but overall I really enjoyed the book, and I would recommend it to fans of this genre.
I received this book for free from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest review.
