Rachel White is the ultimate good girl. A hard-working lawyer at a large Manhattan law firm and a diligent maid of honor to her childhood best friend Darcy, Rachel has always played by all the rules.

Since high school, she has watched Darcy shine, quietly accepting the sidekick role in their lopsided friendship. But that suddenly changes the night of her thirtieth birthday when Rachel finally confesses her feelings to Darcy’s fiancé, and is both horrified and thrilled to discover that he feels the same way.

As the wedding date draws near, events spiral out of control, and Rachel knows she must make a choice between her heart and conscience. In so doing, she discovers that the lines between right and wrong can be blurry, endings aren’t always neat, and sometimes you have to risk everything to be true to yourself.

This is a difficult one for me. I hate cheaters I think if you’re not happy you should end it because cheating does more harm than good.

However Darcy irritated me from the moment she appeared, she is so self-centred. I’ve had a friend like Darcy and I was Rachel.  I was always letting my friend take the spotlight while I was in the background until she needed me to look after her. So seeing Rachel get back at Darcy was quite satisfying.

Hilary was a great character. She really made Rachel see the light and stop thinking that Darcy should get what she wants because she’s Darcy.

I also loved Ethan without giving too much away he’s there for Rachel when she needs him the most.

There were a lot of twists and turns in this book. I switched sides quite a few times.  Team Rachel and Dex then Team Rachel and Marcus then back to Team Rachel and Dex. I enjoyed the ending of this book and I was eager to read Something Blue.
