Hannah Lovekin's boyfriend of five years finally pops the big question. And what does she say in return? No.
Lovekin, at 31, is anti-marriage, anti-family, and anti-intimacy. She really is the anti-girl, and after her boyfriend's proposal, she is forced to reevaluate her life and her stance on everything she is against.
In each of Maxted's books, she features a female character who learns and grows as the central plot point. What I preferred in her earlier books - Getting Over It and Running in Heels - is that the problems are subtle, not shoved down the reader's throat. This book lacks subtly, and instead, the reader finds him/herself confronted with a very selfish, childish protagonist. At the end, she's likable, but I hated Hannah so much that I actually put the book down for two months, giving myself enough time to forget about how much I hated her before I finished the book.
In the end, the book somewhat redeemed itself, but I cannot fully say that I would recommend this book to others. This is not Maxted's greatest work, which is why I can only give it a mediocre two and a half out of five brats.
