Something Borrowed – Ranting Review (7)


Something Borrowed tells the story of Rachel, a young attorney living and working in Manhattan.

Rachel has always been the consummate good girl—until her thirtieth birthday, when her best friend, Darcy, throws her a party. That night, after too many drinks, Rachel ends up in bed with Darcy’s fiancé. Although she wakes up determined to put the one-night fling behind her, Rachel is horrified to discover that she has genuine feelings for the one guy she should run from. As the September wedding date nears, Rachel knows she has to make a choice. In doing so, she discovers that the lines between right and wrong can be blurry, endings aren’t always neat, and sometimes you have to risk all to win true happiness. 
Something Borrowed is a phenomenal debut novel that will have you laughing, crying, and calling your best friend.


Rachel and Darcy are best friends. Then when Rachel turns 30, Darcy throws her a party where Rachel “accidentally” hooks up with Darcy fiancée, and her long time friend. Rachel has been love with Dex ( the fiancée) since forever and then this cow dung of a man doesn’t tell his to-be-wife about Rachel and the hook up, but rather convinces Rachel to come with him and spend some time together so that they can know for sure if this will work.
Well douche bag you should’ve done that AFTER you call off the wedding. I mean this is a serious issue, if young people are made to believe that you can go behind anyone’s back in the name of love then, what has the world become? I am so against normalizing this bullshit. 
Nothing about this book was cute. The only reason I finished it was to know what reason they give Darcy. Darcy had her own set of issues, but that doesn’t mean that all the characters in the book resort to cheating because that is the only way. NO IT IS NOT.
I mean I don’t care if your best friend is a self-centered, egotistical woman who is only concerned about being the center of everybody’s attention; nothing – and I mean NOTHING – justifies cheating. Even if you’re in love. I mean bullshit; sacks full of it. 
How can one even think about going behind anybody’s back, much less someone you’ve know your whole life. I hated this book. Whatever it is trying to justify should just be thrown right back.
Never reading anything by this author again. 

– Peace
