Brilliantly executed and endlessly funny, this page-turning debut showcases one of the most winning, irrepressible voices since Helen Fielding's Bridget Jones. "I'm getting married.""He's perfect!""It's a disaster." Meet Lily Wilder--New Yorker, lawyer and the luckiest woman in the world. She has a dream job, friends who adore her, a family full of charismatic and loving women, and a total catch of a fiance. Also? She has "no" business getting married. Lily's fiance Will is a brilliant, handsome archaeologist. Lily is sassy, impulsive, fond of a good drink (or five) and completely incapable of being faithful to just one man. Lily likes Will, but does she love him? Will loves Lily, but does he really know her? As the wedding approaches, Lily's nights--and mornings, and afternoons--of booze, laughter and questionable decisions become a growing reminder that the happiest day of her life might turn out to be her worst mistake yet. "Bridget Jones's Diary" meets "Where'd You Go, Bernadette" in this joyous and ribald debut, introducing a fabulously self-assured protagonist whose choices raise fresh questions about gender politics, monogamy and the true meaning of fidelity.

I received this book for free through LibraryThing's Early Reviewers. When I first started reading this book, I wasn't too fond of the main character. She was pretty unlikeable. About halfway through the book, it started redeeming itself. This book gives a lot of interesting social commentary abou...

4.0 I Take You: A Novel
Review of an ARC Copy.This was hilarious. Not your usual chick-lit novel, and with a provocative set-up, this novel unravels over the last week before the protagonist wedding, she (the bride) is the female version of the perfect playboy. The storyline will surprise you, the dialogs are extremely wit...

I actually thought this was a very entertaining book. While I don't condone cheating, I guess the fact that Lily was still unsure of getting married made it okay for me. I found it to be fun, outrageous and sometimes laugh out loud funny. The wedding planner and Gran were a hoot!!! I especially like...

I loved this! This was a perfect chick lit read, though "darker" than most chick lit due to some serious topics, drug use and lots and LOTS of drinking. I laughed out loud SO many times, this book was just so funny :) I also really loved the setting (Key West). The romance was a bit unconventional. ...
