Non-Spoiler ARC Review of Kate Meader’s Down with Love

I want to thank Random House Publishing Group – Loveswept and Netgalley for providing me with this eARC.
Releases August 7!
From Goodreads:Sparks fly when the hot-shot divorce lawyer meets the high-powered wedding planner. The only question is, what kind?
If you ever get married, remember my name: Max Henderson. In my line of work, you acquire a certain perspective on supposedly everlasting unions. . . .
1. Pre-nups are your friend.
2. The person you married is not the person you’re divorcing.
3. And I hope you didn’t spend much on the wedding because that was one helluva waste of hard-earned cash, wasn’t it?
But some guys are willing to take a chance. Like my brother, who thinks he’s going to ride off into the sunset with the woman of his dreams in a haze of glitter on unicorns. And the wedding planner—the green-eyed beauty who makes a living convincing suckers to shell out thousands of dollars on centerpieces—is raking it in on this matrimonial monstrosity.
The thing is, Charlie Love is not unlike me. We’re both cogs in the wedding-industrial complex. As the best man, I know her game—and I can play it better than her. But after one scorching, unexpected kiss, I’m thinking I might just want to get played.”

This is not the first time I have picked up the wedding planner and divorce attorney falling in love (My absolute favourite is Melanie Harlow’s Only You). This was a cute solid read, that would be a great one to pick up this summer.

  • Characters: Charlie Love and Max Henderson. Both characters were great. The side characters stole the show half the time.
  • World/Setting: The setting did not enhance the story whatsoever. It took place in Chicago, but it could have been any major American city.
  • Pacing: I do not know how to explain this but the pacing seemed off. It felt dragged out.
  • Romance (yay or nay?): This was my favourite part of the story. The push and pull between the characters was phenomenal. This trope always produces good disagreements and good conversations. I could not have asked for a better pacing of this relationship.

I give Down with Love…
