    No thanks

    I've seen such great reviews and to see how well liked this book is makes me questions so many things. Home girl literally thinks that she can't find love because she's half Black. Like what kind of message is that sending!?!?

    A sweet romance full of wit!

    3.5 STARS! ~ Not the Girl You Marry by Andie J. Christopher was a retelling of the classic romantic comedy movie from the 2000s: How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days. Only, Andie puts a unique spin into play as well as reversing the roles of the characters. We first meet Jack Nolan. He's the kind of man who thrives in relationships. He's been in three so far but now that's he's single he wants to try the casual dating thing. That is until he meets Hannah and feels an instant attraction. Hannah is a strong, intelligent and independent woman but she, unlike Jack, struggles with relationships. She believes men don't see her as the serious type of girl. You know, the girl you take home to met the parents. She's dated guys; however, it seems once they have sex and are together for a little while, the guy soon realizes that he doesn't want to go any deeper. This has made Hannah feel a disdain towards men. Due to their demanding jobs they each must lie to the other to further their careers. Everything becomes a mess of epic proportions when these two begin to develop feelings for one another. I struggled with moments of repetiton and when Hannah would constantly bring herself down, coming off as a character who self-loathes. Battling her own inner demons of self-love and accepting herself, Hannah knows who she is and she is in fact fierce but she didn't believe anyone could love her. The fact that Jack goes out of his way to prove her wrong in that aspect is something I found I rather loved. Overall, Not the Girl You Marry is a sweet romance full of wit with bits of angst thrown in. I really enjoyed the relationships between the characters. I'm looking forward to Jack's sister, Bridget's book next 😏

    slightly predictable, but still so good!

    ACody89 I am so behind in writing this review. I really loved Jack and Hannah! The only reason I gave this a 4 instead of a 5 is because it had a little bit too much predictability. That did NOT stop me from loving this book though!! One of my favorite things is Jack and Hannah's "meet cute." Neither of them really "wanted" to be in a bar, but were both doing their "friend" duties. Hannah's reaction to jack, and visa versa, was so awesome. I loved how Hannah tried to not let Jack get to her. And I really loved how hard Jack tried! Then when it came to their jobs, they were both pretty cut throat, and they were both willing to do whatever it took for that promotion. I think this is where things got a little slimy. I loved this concept, but it was a tad bit predictable. BUT I loved every second of the hot mess that these two became! And I truly mean HOT MESS! Neither of them would admit anything to each other, whether it be feelings or the truth about their jobs, and they both did incredibly dumb things trying to lie about those things. It made for a seriously comical performance from both of them. I truly loved who Jack and Hannah really were, and I really thought it was funny when they tried acting like who they "should" be to get where they wanted to. But, gotta talk about the secondary characters. I hated both of their bosses with a passion, but I LOVED Jack's family and Sasha was so great! These other people in the book made up a lot for the "predictability" of the book. They added some really hysterical and some really "real" moments to this book that made it so much better!

    Great Read!

    I listened to this book in the car driving to and from work. As I began to listen, this felt a lot like the movie “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days.” While the base of the story was very similar, I think Andie J Christopher‘s characters that she created where fantastic. I loved Jack and Hannah as well as all of the minor characters in the book. I thought they were both funny, charming, and just a little “crazy” (in a good way, of course!!!). Jack and Hannah and their banter back and forth made this story stand out from the movie “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days.” It shaped the story that made me what to continue listening long after my drive had ended. Andie J Christopher does a wonderful job with her descriptions of characters as well as the situations they are in. It is easy to picture each part of the story in your mind’s eye and see it all unfolding before you! While this was first book of Andie J Christopher that I have read, I will for sure be checking out her other books!!!
