ABOUT THE BOOK
From the bestselling author of Dumped, Actually comes a hilarious, heartfelt story about marriage, divorce and what the hell happens next.
Amy and Joel’s honeymoon in the Maldives was the perfect week of love, sun, sex and a free minibar…but unfortunately, it was also the high point of a marriage that quickly descended into an absolute disaster zone.
Eight years on, they’re back in paradise, trying to recreate the magic with new partners. What a crying shame they’ve picked the same week to do it…
Trapped together on an island small enough to spit across with the wind behind you, Amy and Joel pick up right where they left off: at total loggerheads. And so begins a hideous week of rivalry, one-upmanship and score-settling—as each tries to prove they’ve now comprehensively won at life.
The thing is, hurt and pain are strongest where there was once love. And what if being back in this island paradise, with all its wonderful memories, sets sparks flying in more ways than one?
BUY LINK: You Again?
Here is a perfect pick you up book. It is light reading and made me smile and cringe on every page. The story follows two couples as they set off for the holiday of a lifetime to the Maldives. But two of them have been there before, on the perfect honeymoon getaway. Now they have a divorce two years behind them and are with different partners.
Amy and Joel had worked together in real estate and were like two peas in a pod until an error at work that they both blamed each other for. It ended their marriage and lost one of them their job. The hate between them had never lessened, and now two years on, Joel has spotted Amy and her new bloke at the airport, and it looks like they are heading the same place as Joel and his girlfriend.
The story takes the couples through an obsessive game of attempting to avoid each other, with hilarious outcomes. It is followed by sabotage, one-upmanship, and the ultimate showdown. There are butt-clenching moments and very windy times ahead in every possible way. I have to say that the author does get inventive in the tac-ticks that they use. Some of this story is corny, but I enjoyed this light side of it, with the over the top situations and the visual delights that were created.
I wish to thank the publisher and Net Galley for an e-copy of this book, which I have reviewed honestly.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Nick Spalding is an author who, try as he might, can’t seem to write anything serious.
Before becoming a full-time author, he worked in the communications industry, mainly in media and marketing. As talking rubbish for a living can get tiresome (for anyone other than a politician), he thought he’d have a crack at writing comedy fiction – with a very agreeable level of success so far, it has to be said. Nick has now sold over two million books – including over a million books sales with Amazon Publishing alone. This flabbergasts him every single day.
Nick lives in the South of England with his lovely (and extremely patient) wife. He’s now in his mid forties – and is rather annoyed at the universe about it, because it gave him no choice in the matter. He’s also addicted to Thai food, still thinks Batman is just about the coolest thing on Earth, and has a dreadful singing voice.
Nick is always happy to hear from people who like his work. It keeps his fragile ego glued together for a little bit longer. If you’d like to get in touch, here’s how you can do it:
