I received a copy of this book for free, and I leave my review voluntarily.

Sophie Ranald is the youngest of five sisters. She was born in Zimbabwe and lived in South Africa until an acute case of itchy feet brought her to London in her mid-20s. As an editor for a customer publishing agency, Sophie developed her fiction-writing skills describing holidays to places she’d never visited. In 2011, she decided to disregard all the excellent advice given to aspiring novelists and attempt to write full-time. After one false start, It Would Be Wrong to Steal My Sister’s Boyfriend (Wouldn’t It?) seemed to write itself, and six more novels have followed. Sophie also writes for magazines and online about food, fashion, finance, and fitness. She lives in southeast London with her excellent partner Hopi and their two adorable cats.

It’s normal to hate the man of your dreams, right?

Once upon a time, Abbie and Matt had swoon-worthy mini breaks in Paris, and Abbie would cook him steak wearing nothing but an apron and high heels. These days, they’re experiencing the longest dry spell on record… And Abbie is keeping a very big secret.

But she’s not ready to give up. Nobody knows Abbie like Matt does, and it helps that he’s tall, dark and handsome, with hazel eyes and dimples to die for.

Determined to reignite the romance, Abbie initiatesOperation Memory Lane and recreates their happiest memories. Maybe breakfast in bed, sexy lingerie, dirty martinis and a romantic weekend in the countryside will bring back Abbie’s butterflies and make her giddy with happiness…

But revisiting the past is a risky business, and secrets always come out in the end. Will the truth ruin their second chance at love?

“Nobody’s perfect.”

Abbie and Matt have been together since they were teenagers. And Abbie thought they would always be couple goals, but lately, she isn’t sure if their past is enough to lead to a future together.

I enjoyed this book. It was very realistic, and I think people can relate to Abbie and Matt’s struggles.

After being together for so long and overcoming so much, I think it is feasible that comfortability and other life struggles can weigh you down and make you question everything.

I loved the advice the girlfriends gave, and I enjoyed taking the trips down memory lane with Abbie as she took this journey. I found her and Matt’s dynamic well suited, and I think it is apparent they do love each other, but life has added burdens they haven’t processed.

I also felt like many of their issues could have been resolved if Abbie had spent more time talking to Matt and less to her girlfriends, but I also get running to your girls when you’re struggling.

This is an emotional, comical, sweet story about falling in, slipping out, and falling back in love.
