I’m back so soon with another review. I managed to speed my way through this book since starting it yesterday and rather than wait, I thought I’d get my review written up quickly. Whilst I’m on this little reading spree, I can’t wait to get into the next book on my list this weekend.
Every now and again, I like to read something light hearted and funny and when I saw this book I thought it would be perfect for just that. Plus I thought it may be a good reminder that my own boyfriend isn’t all that bad haha. Thank you to Carina Taylor for this advanced copy of World’s Worst Boyfriend in return for an honest review. World’s Worst Boyfriend is due to be published on 20th April 2021 and you can get a copy here.
Saidy has come to the conclusion that she has the world’s worst boyfriend. She’s gone as far as to enter him into a contest for the undesirable accolade and managed to win a trophy to prove it.
In Saidy’s mind there is no excuse for Fletcher’s behaviour and the endless disappointment in their relationship. But what if there is an excuse that she doesn’t know about? She decides to break up with Fletcher but he doesn’t quit stopping by to take care of her at times when she doesn’t even know she needs it. Can Saidy hang around long enough to find out if he really is the world’s worst boyfriend?
General Thoughts 🤔
Ah, this book really was the epitome of romantic comedy. I laughed, I oooh’d, I aaaah’d and I swooned. It’s a relatively short book and it was perfect for a laid back, easy read to fly through in a short space of time. I’m not saying that this book is going to change your life, but it will certainly give you a few hours of escapism and some giggles.
I adored Saidy and she made me laugh throughout. She made some rash decisions in the heat of the moment (one of them including scissors) but it was hilarious because who hasn’t been there? Who hasn’t turned into a little bit of a drama queen when their relationship isn’t quite going as you want it to?
Fletcher was an absolute sweetheart and I think he got a bad rep at the start of the book. When it starts to become clear why his relationship is often second or third priority in his life, I defy anyone to not fall in love with him.
Writing Style ✍️
I liked that the author threw some scenes into the book that were so easily relatable. Whether it was funny scenes, awkward scenes or some erring on the side of sad. It brought the book to life for me.
The book is written from both Saidy’s and Fletcher’s point of view and I thought that that was perfect for the storyline to give the reader insight into what each character was truly feeling and going through.
Conclusion & Scoring 🎖️
World’s Worst Boyfriend was a great light hearted read that I really enjoyed. It’s a good, clean rom com treat and I’m glad that I invested the time to enjoy a not so complicated and enjoyable read.
