You Deserve Each Other has taken some heat from readers. I’ve seen a few negative reviews that suggest this book is filled with unlikable, and bitter characters. HOWEVER, I did NOT feel this way at all and am so glad I took a chance on this authors debut because I absolutely adored this book. . Marriage and relationships are NEVER easy. We have to skirt problems, check ourselves, and not be selfish no matter what stage we are in. All relationships are a learning experience and people are filled with flaws and ticks that some may find… irritating. However, knowing these things and still loving someone despite them shows a healthiness within the union which is exactly what we find in this book. Getting to the point of realizing their own faults within this novel takes time. In between we see hilarious pranks and a small amount of bitterness and distaste, but when it comes down to it it’s a real eye opener. Sarah Hogle mixed real-life emotions into the story that slowly creep up on us and the characters and watching them come together after everything they endured was breathtaking. The process is slow, but it’s so worth it in the end and I think many readers can learn a thing or two about letting go and the importance of communication with your partner THROUGH this hilarious and at times, emotional read.
There were some moments when I didn’t care for Nicholas and I think this is because he never had a POV through the story (I would have loved to see his thoughts on page). However, as I got to know him towards the end, I started to really love his character (just like Naomi). There were also some parts of Naomi I didn’t like (she had her selfish moments, but don’t we all?) but again, she grew so much and I started rooting for her despite the issues she was having within herself. I think the couples main flaw was miscommunication and being a key to every healthy relationship, lacking it can cause serious problems as it did with them. But as they open their eyes and look at themselves its beautiful to see them come together.
Overall, You Deserve Each Other was a major winner for me and I am so glad I bought this book. I loved every single second of it. I laughed, got emotional (especially towards the end) and really thought about how IMPORTANT communication is. I always KNEW it was important, but seeing it play out negatively really opened my eyes.
If you’re looking for a hilarious and heartfelt read, try this one! It’s a new top favorite of mine and I recommend it 100%!
