Remember those 70s movies like Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice about those sophisticated 70s type people all coupling up and then re-coupling. This book reminded me of them. There are 3 different couples here, I actually thought some of them were being set up for sequels but at least 2 of them have a pretty settled ending so I don't think that's the case. There's some fun banter but, much like those 70s movies, there isn't always as much heart. While I didn't particularly dislike any of the characters, I wasn't particularly itching for them to end up together either. There were also a lot of crazy schemes to get people together when a simple conversation would have been a better choice.
I think this was Eloisa James' first novel and there is still a lot to like. The dialogue is fun and friendship between the women was well done. Although I'm a bit troubled by the fact that the one woman who was truly "loose" is the one who ends up alone. Nope, never seen that message before. I haven't checked out who is featured in any of the upcoming stories so she may end up with her HEA after all. I have no issue thinking that a woman who wanted to remain single is happy being single, but it seems like she was forced into it not that she wanted it.
Mostly enjoyable, if not a favorite. It was my first Eloisa James and I will read more.
