Breaking the Rules
Breaking the Rules by Cat Lavoie
When twenty-seven year old Roxy Rule’s best friend and roommate accepts a glamorous new job overseas, she expects their relationship to continue as it’s always been—carefree and easy—until they share a heart-stopping kiss moments before his departure. Overcome with mixed emotions, she fights the urge to over analyze the situation and resumes back to her normal life in New York City, working for an intolerable boss at a dead end job, creeping further and further away from her own dreams of becoming a professional chef.
While things become more complicated between her and Ollie, Roxy is sure that nothing can come between two lifelong best friends—not even mild jealousy over a thriving career or a silly little kiss that meant nothing. In fact, it was such a meaningless and forgettable kiss that she convinces herself that it’s not even worth mentioning to her fiancé, although it is all she can think about.
Roxy’s already topsy-turvy life only gets more complicated when her sisters Steffi and Izzie suddenly become her roommates. Steffi is six months into a pregnancy she refuses to discuss and Izzie is in the throes of a premature midlife crisis. Roxy tries to take control of her career, her love life and her sisters – but can she really handle it all? And can the Rule family keep it together – or break under the pressure?
This was such a great book! It is a very fun, light chick lit book that I really enjoyed. I loved the best friends relationship between Roxy and Ollie. They were so sweet and I thought they were perfect for each other. Ethan and Rachel were both very annoying to me, but they were essential to the story.
I thought the writing of this book was great. Everything flowed so well and really made me want to keep reading. There is a perfect twist in the plot right when you start to maybe lose interest too. That twist pulled me right back in and kept my attention until the very end.
I received a free copy of this book in return for an honest review.
