Darcy Rhone thought she had it all figured out: the more beautiful the girl, the more charmed her life. Never mind substance. Never mind playing by the rules. Never mind karma.

But Darcy’s neat, perfect world turns upside down when her best friend, Rachel, the plain-Jane “good girl,” steals her fiancé, while Darcy finds herself completely alone for the first time in her life…with a baby on the way.
Darcy tries to recover, fleeing to her childhood friend living in London and resorting to her tried-and-true methods for getting what she wants. But as she attempts to recreate her glamorous life on a new continent, Darcy finds that her rules no longer apply. It is only then that Darcy can begin her journey toward self-awareness, forgiveness, and motherhood.

So after finishing Something Borrowed I instantly started Something Blue.

I found Darcy to be so irritating throughout Something Borrowed and I found the ending rather fitting and I was only mildly surprised.

However throughout this book I did soften and start to like Darcy a bit more.

This book is the perfect ending to Something Borrowed.
