The Two of Us by Andy Jones
Thanks to LoveReading.co.uk, I received an ARC of this in exchange for an honest review.
"Falling in love is the easy part. What matters most is what happens next..."
The story opens where we meet Fisher & Ivy who are in a relationship. Fisher is a director & Ivy's a make-up artist. Although, they are only together 19 days but they know that they are just meant to be together or are they? The fact that they know little else about each other is a minor detail. We will follow their journey over the next 12 months to see how things will pan out for them, their lives will change forever but will it be for better or for worse?
The Two of Us has been compared to both The Rosie Project & US, popular books from the last few months. However, I haven't read either of these books so I went in with an open mind and I loved it. This was a very bittersweet & heart-warming read, the story flows well throughout the book. Parts of the story even reduced me to tears, it's heart-breaking, funny and such a warm novel. I really enjoyed Andy's book which I read in a couple of days, it kept me turning the pages until the very end. This story had it all a little bit of humor, love, family, learning to not take each other for granted, to more sensitive issues - I found I had a little tear in my eye at the end along with shedding a few along the way, so grab this book, curl up on the couch and prepare to have a few lump in your throat moments too. It definitely didn't disappoint.
The Two of Us by Andy Jones is published by Simon and Schuster on Kindle on 12 February 2015, the paperback version is published on 7 May 2015.
