The Happy Ever After Playlist by Abby Jimenez was a cute and humorous read. While the ending was very predictable, as are most rom-com novels, it was still a feel-good book that provided a smile during these current trying times.
One trouble-making dog brings together two perfect strangers in this USA Today bestselling romantic comedy full of “fierce humor and fiercer heart.” (Casey McQuiston, NYT bestselling author of Red, White & Royal Blue)
Two years after losing her fiancé, Sloan Monroe still can’t seem to get her life back on track. But one trouble-making pup with a “take me home” look in his eyes is about to change everything. With her new pet by her side, Sloan finally starts to feel more like herself. Then, after weeks of unanswered texts, Tucker’s owner reaches out. He’s a musician on tour in Australia. And bottom line: He wants Tucker back.
Well, Sloan’s not about to give up her dog without a fight. But what if this Jason guy really loves Tucker? As their flirty texts turn into long calls, Sloan can’t deny a connection. Jason is hot and nice and funny. There’s no telling what could happen when they meet in person. The question is: With his music career on the rise, how long will Jason really stick around? And is it possible for Sloan to survive another heartbreak?
The beginning of the book was adorable as it was through a lost dog that these two people started talking and ended up falling for each other. This was a different set up from most rom-coms which is what spiked my interest to begin with. I loved the story line of showing Sloan’s past and what it takes for her to begin a new relationship.
I would have liked to see more character development of the supporting characters. I would love to see a sequel where it shows Kristin and Josh’s story for example. I am also curious to see more about Lola. I felt that Lola in particular had great potential and possibility within the story, but that her role was greatly downplayed to make more room for Jason and Sloan. I would love a story about Lola where it shows her backstory and future as well.
Overall, this is a good book to distract from the current state of the world. It is not a very involved book. But it does give you hope that things could return to being this easy one day.
