Falling in love is the easy part. What matters most is what happens next…

Fisher and Ivy have been an item for a whole nineteen days. And they just know they are meant to be together. The fact that they know little else about each other is a minor detail. Over the course of twelve months, in which their lives will change forever, Fisher and Ivy discover that falling in love is one thing, but staying there is an entirely different story.

The Two of Us is a charming, honest and heart-breaking novel about life, love, and the importance of taking neither one for granted.

Review

Thank you to Simon and Schuster UK for accepting my request via Netgalley. I promised Andy at last year Books and the City Spring Blogger event that I would read his book. I am quite glad I didn’t promise when because it took me almost a year.

All I can say is WOW. I was not prepared for this book or the emotions that came with it.

This book follows Ivy and Fisher. Unlike conventional romances this is set about 3 weeks after they have started dating. This book is also told from Fisher’s point of view. I really enjoyed this change.

I really liked Fisher and Ivy. They were really great characters and very real. Throughout their story I kept thinking that this could be the story of people I knew.

I don’t want to ruin any part of this story but I will just say that I loved every page of it. Even when I was cursing Andy for breaking our hearts and making me sob I still loved it and I can’t wait to read more from this extremely talented man.

  1. Great review, Emma. I started reading this last year, but didn’t finish it. I heard so many good things about this book, but it somehow didn’t live up to my expectations. I didn’t like Fisher’s voice at all and didn’t warm to him as much as I thought I would. Oh well, I suppose that shows that we all have different tastes in books – which is definitely a good thing :-). Thanks for linking up to #TalkoftheTown, Emma.
