read Just Married? Natasha West ↠ 3 review Just Married? review Ð eBook or Kindle ePUB When uptight British bookshop owner Emily Bartlett goes to Las Vegas to get over a humiliating breakup she’s expecting to make a few mistakes But when she meets Ruby Knight a pessimistic American C list TV actress with designs on a movie career she makes a whopper The pair get so incredibly drunk together that they end up getting accidently married In the cold light of day. While it is true that miscommunicationlack of communicationcommunication mistakes are a tried and true addition to Romances and Comedy going back centuries even what s Romeo and Juliet but a lack of communicationmiscommunication scenario eh I shall take this drug to make myself appear dead so that it will be easier to um appear dead for reasons of starting life anew elsewhere with my beloved Oh monkpriestdude let my beloved know I didn t really kill myself okay monk dude nods evilly woman drinks body grows cold and stiff Begins to smell what it s the age of open sewers and little hygiene What s this NOOO My beloved has mysteriously died for no known reason maybe because her heart burst from love fear or lack of oxygen It is kind of closed off down here pulls out dagger monk dude peers around corner with like a gleam of sparkle in his eye Romeo stabs self in heart drops dead Juliet gasps and pulls air into lungs wiggles thinks to herself out loud since this is a play Why am I all sticky What s this weight upon my breasts NOOO My beloved has stabbed himself I cannot bear to live grabs knife plunges into kidney screams in pain gasps pulls out dagger tries again plunges into lung lung begins to collapse gasps out why is it so hard to join my beloved stabs self in heart dies evil monk dude shakes head mutters to himself if only they d talked to each other eh Stupid barely teenagers Walks away drinking blood spots the families makes a speech about see this is your fault Do you wish a dagger to take your lives receives wailing but no one takes him up on the daggersWhere was I Oh right communication issues are a tried and true addition to many a genre Sometimes to the point of excess like say in lesbian fiction Well this book here is both a romance and a comedy so there s something like a double helping of miscommunication going on here with in addition with like that evil monk dude above an evil mother type who adds a layer of disinformation to the mix Right But rather than talk about it you just started looking for someone else There s a ton of genuine humor in the book mostly in the beginning area but some filtering through the rest The kind that makes even me to laugh I like laughing so don t read that even me too hard There s also a ton of errors throughout And I m not talking about the number of times the American characters talked about sat on things The word sitting is apparently banned in the British Isles but I ve already wasted plenty of words about that issue in other reviews though I stress again that it is the American characters in addition to the British using this sat word weirdly No the errors are the other stuff Like that time when the chapter was focused on Emily there s a certain amount of head swapping but it s mostly between Emily and Ruby and there tended to be breaks between the swaps when suddenly Emily is running somewhere the name given for the person is Ruby and yes it is obviously still Emily s chapter when the story includes the bit about how she presumably Ruby but no it s Emily Ruby was just inserted incorrectly really needs to talk to Ruby wow good thing I knew this was really Emily s chapter or that d been confusing Ruby really needed to talk to RubyOh right and as mentioned there s an evil mom in the book This is one of those kinda annoying to me books that involve women who are old enough to control their own lives both characters are around 27 28 but who allow themselves to be dominated by an older woman Denise being the older woman s name the mother of Ruby Knight actress Denise sacrificed herself to get Ruby s dream to come to be real acting Somewhere along the way apparently not from beginning she also became Ruby s manager The evil micro managing bitchy all controlling type of manager Presumably there s some backstory for Emily as well based on hints dropped here and there but she s mostly managed by Denise when she comes under her spell the hints involving the kind of praise that undermines instead of uplifts and working for her brother instead of with him in running the family bookstoreI got away from myself and the little helpful tidbits are so far down in the review they probably will get lost but this is a lesbian lesbian book which is occasionally important to note involving two late twenties women from different circumstances One as the book description puts her is a C list actress who I do not recall if this is in there as well is an American with a bitchy manager who is also her mother while the other is a bookstore employee from Britain specifically OxfordThe book opens with Emily getting dumped with one of the comments being that s she s too unspontaneous or however that was worded And then Emily goes back to their place to toss all of Katie s things into the yard not really but yes Katie did ask Emily to pack up her things for her she s that type of bitch Somewhere along the way though Emily finds herself cramped on a transatlantic flight to Las Vegas A place that she d never particularly wished to go but a couple of coin flips finds her heading there Meanwhile and now I m picturing Stephen Colbert being a little too arousedexcitedwhatever when he says Meanwhile for his Meanwhile segment seriously what s up with his orgasmic response to the segment opening credits another woman is in a different kind of argument this one with her mother This being Ruby and Denise At some point Ruby darts out gets in her car and heads for home somehow ending on the on ramp to VegasThe two lead characters meet Ruby immediately erupts at Emily because she s full of herself and assumes Emily is some kind of fan who wants a video or something Things move from there and they have great fun together to the point of drunkennessWhere upon the story turns in another common trope though from a direction I m not sure I ve actually seen before It s the pretend relationship for career gain trope Actually while the for career gain is something of a sub trope of pretend relationship I was going for the pretend relationship part Why are these two random strangers suddenly in a pretend relationship Because apparently they got married during their drunken night of fun they even have a certificate to prove itOne thing leads to another bitch mom is initially annoyed then not happy but something like that because there s positive viral internet trending for her client daughter based on this marriage She initially wants to make use of this romance but learns the two women didn t actually know each other before yesterday night so instead wants to make this be a pretend romance at least until x for career gain daughter s career gain Fun funny incredibly short book My third I think work by this author I ve read I seem to alternate between 2 or 4 ratings and here we seem to have landed on Oh god did you kill her Phil asked What No Because it s always the uiet ones I didn t kill her It s the total opposite actually Phil went uiet for a second and then asked You gave birth to her Rating 388March 19 2019
