I did read this and it wasn't "bad" but for some reason it took me longer than usual. Eve "pushes" her live in boyfriend, Michael, for a committment - marriage. He had been married before so wasn't in a rush. After they do get engaged SHE begins to have second thoughts. The socks on the floor now drive her crazy. The thought of being with just one man for the rest of her life? Wait a minute! Do they or don't they?

A quick, funny romp. Very clever, easy to identify with characters and plot. Very cute.

This is a good book for young women who are about to embark on the institution of marriage, or want to. Have you been dating someone forever and anticipate him popping the question any time now? This book is for you.

"A charming, funny, novel. For any single woman who has white-dress-and-veil anxiety, it provides refreshing relief. A funny listen to.

From the back cover: "A wickedly funny accout of an intelligent, rational woman's transformation into a bundle of anxieties that is the bride-to-be....The sight of Michael's discarded socks on the floor makes her realize, 'Suddenly, a sock on the floor is not just a sock on the floor. It is a sock on the floor for the rest of my life.'"

Not the best book I've ever read. It was a difficult book for me to get into.

What a fun and witty story! I was surprised that I enjoyed the young characters so much since I'm long past the honeymoom age, but they captured my interest with their quirkey personalities. The story was hilarious and also tender, revealing the many sides of a relationship.

As a fellow bride-to-be, I really identified with this one. It is funny and a very quick read.

Great Book. Easy Read

I was really excited to read this book seeing as that I'm engaged and planning a big wedding. It actually turned out to be one of those books that I just couldn't wait to finish because I didn't want to read it anymore. (I have a problem not finishing books no matter if I like them or not.) The characters were older than I expected and the book just wasn't the traditional engagement process. I am from a small town in Oklahoma so maybe things are just different down here than anywhere else, but I just did not like this book at all.
