I had such high hopes for this one after reading the blurb that I immediately sought it out to buy but alas, it didn't work out quite the way I expected.

I thought the idea of childhood friends ending up getting married was cute and I did get a sense of their history, but I didn't get the dynamics b/w the H&h. As enjoyable their banter was, it just became too juvenile for me at certain points. Well, their banter and the H&h themselves:o For a couple who claimed to be BFFs since they were babies, I didn't understand how they couldn't just have it out and say their true feelings. Then there's the occasional repetitiveness due to the dual POV. I'm sorry to say but by the 60-70% mark, I started skimming.

Having said that, I did like the history b/w the H&h's families. And every time I was ready to give up on it, a line, a quip, a musing somehow managed to save the H&h and the story itself. So fortunately, it became an ok read in the end.
