The Opposite of Maybe

The Opposite of Maybe by Maddie Dawson does not disappoint as a chick-lit.

"Jonathan and Rosie have been together for 15 years, when within a span of a few months marriage is broached, break-up ensues, and a pregnancy is announced." Bottom line: lots of drama which keeps you entertained. I enjoyed the writing and it was a fun weekend read.

With that said, I didn't seem to like any of the characters except for Tony. The main characters bothered me. Jonathan didn't seem to have a personality at all and Rosie is a typical "damsel in distress" throughout the whole book.

What bothered me the most is the fact that Rosie went back and forth between men...and in the end it's only a happy ending because she has a man. While it seems to be true of most relationships these days it makes me sad seeing that even books perpetrate that you need to be in a relationship to be happy.

I can't complain though, as that tends to be what a chick-lit is made of. This would be a perfect summer beach read book.
