Book review: The Opposite of Maybe



Jonathan and Rosie have been together so long they finish each other’s sentences—so when he (finally) proposes and asks her to move across the country with him, everyone is happily surprised.
 But when things suddenly unravel, Rosie sends Jonathan packing and moves back home with Soapie, the irascible, opinionated grandmother who raised her. Only now she has to figure out how to fire Soapie’s very unsuitable caregiver, a gardener named Tony who lets her drink martinis, smoke, and cheat at Scrabble.
It’s a temporary break, of course—until Rosie realizes she’s accidentally pregnant at 44, completely unequipped for motherhood, and worse, may be falling in love with the sentimental, troubled Tony, whose life is even more muddled than hers. 
It’s not until Rosie learns the truth about her mother’s tragic story that she wonders if sometimes you have to let go of your fears, trustingthat the big-hearted, messy life that awaits you may just be the one you were meant to live.


My thoughts:
This book is original in the concept of it. Getting pregnant at 44 after an oops is something that I’ve never read before. Through in a crazy grandma who is still getting down at 88 years old, an obsessive boyfriend baby daddy, an overprotected circle of friends, and a younger man makes for a great read. The love triangle was to die for. I went through every emotion possible reading this book. At times, I would get so mad at Rosie for being so naïve but then the next page I would be so happy for her. I felt sadness when her grandma died. Anger when she actually left her old life to start over with her teacup loving boyfriends. Happiness when she chose Tony. Overall this book is a great summer read. It was quick and engaging until the very end.
