It’s always been yes. Yes, I’ll be your friend. Yes, I’ll be your girlfriend. Yes, I’ll move in with you. Yes, yes, yes. I can’t just change my mind now. Can I?
Hailey has always been told she can have it all. And saying yes to every opportunity that comes her way seems like the obvious way to make sure she gets it.
When she finds an engagement ring hidden in her boyfriend Dom’s closet, she knows she’ll say yes.
Her best friend Sophie suggests they run a marathon together and although Hailey hasn’t done more than sprint for a bus in years, she says yes.
And every time her new boss, the infamous Vivian Jones, asks her to stay late (again) at her dream job, the answer is always yes.
But somewhere between saying ‘yes’ to Vivian’s latest demands and still trying to make it home on time for boxsets and burritos on the sofa with Dom, Hailey has lost sight of what she really wanted in the first place.
Far from winning at life, Hailey feels like she is fighting to juggle two very different worlds. When those worlds finally collide, could having it all actually mean losing everything?
My second book by this author and although I liked the previous one, I totally adored this one.
I thought Hailey, the main character is great. Who did never feel like ‘why do they get those chances and I don’t?’ or ‘What if’? or ‘Is this it?’. It makes her very real and she could easily be sitting next to you in a bus or restaurant.
Never say no. I wish people could do everything they would like to do. Would that not be a dream come true? But life does not happen that way. Never saying no can make you very happy, but sometimes you have to say no to stay happy. What people don’t know, can’t hurt them. So true, but what if they find out, who will be hurt the most…?
A great story about finding out what you want the hard way. I enjoyed the writing style and different kind of emotions the book evoked. 5 stars
Thank you, Elizabeth Neep and Bookouture
