Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
If anyone has seen my moral compass, I would like it back now.
I have got to give my girl Emily Griffin some props for Something Borrowed. She did an amazing job at making me forget cough cough, not care that the romance in this book was wrong on so many levels, by making me root for the couple’s happiness. That is what a romance writer is supposed to do.
A little synopsis
Who is this forbidden couple? Dex and Rachel. They meet in law school. Rachel is the girl who is beautiful but has no clue. Dex, well he is charm and sex in the shape of a man. Rachel has a best friend since diapers, named Darcy. She meets Dex, and the two eventually become engaged. Because well Darcy gets everything Rachel wants. That is until Rachel loses her moral compass and begins an affair with Dex. Don’t worry there is still so much more to the story. I haven’t spoiled anything. Trust me. If you are feeling bad for Darcy, go read the book. You won’t feel bad any more.
My personal thoughts
I feel like Something Borrowed was a little bit of an underdog story. Rachel seemed to learn to take a stand and came out on top despite those keeping her down. If I could take anything away from this book it’s that it is important to fight for your happiness no matter what others might think. Just maybe not in the same scandalous way as Rachel. ‘
Infidelity aside if you are looking for a decent story this would be the book for you
