I Take You
Lily Wilder is a New York lawyer and blushing bride. Will is a handsome archaeologist. Lily likes Will, but does she love him? Will loves Lily, but does he really know her? The days and nights leading up to the wedding are what I would call "ho shit." Booze, bad decisions, partying, infidelity.
Listen. I am all for sexual freedom but being engaged, like getting married the next day engaged, I cannot condone this behavior by reading it. By page nine, she was cheating with her boss. By page 10, she reiterates that she doesn't deserve him. No shit, skank! By page 33, she admits to marrying him because of great patter. On page 46, she is called a "honky lovah" by one of her friends. Racist dater, much? So on page 51 when a character says to close your eyes, I closed the book and promptly returned it to the library.
If you find yourself bored on a summer day and have NOTHING else to do or read, then pick up ANOTHER book.
