Shine Not Burn

So i know i have been a little slow with reviews but i'm getting there i read a lot recently and can't wait to talk about it. So the book that i'm going to talk about is Shine Not Burn By Elle Casey. *Contains Spoilers* Now this book was one of those pull-your-hair-yell-at-your-reader type of book. Now we meet Andie who works at a law firm and has the worst taste when it comes to guys. She goes to Vegas for one of her best friends bachelorette party. Now years later she wants to get married but can't because she found out that she was already married. So she packs everything and goes to have a negotiation with her supposed husband. ....Whew let me tell you people this girl as much as i loved her character as much as i wanted to shake some sense into her. She has this insane idea of her life plan. She wants to become partners in her law firm at 20 something. Then have kids at thirty. If everybody tried to set up their life like her we would be like robots going on about life without any passion or life in us. What she doesn't realize is life will never let you do things your way. When she went with her friends to Vegas i felt that she was finally starting to realize that her life isn't one big planner and she should take things one step at a time.  Oh my gosh i totally loved Mack that was a guy who knew what he wanted and fought for it till the end. Now we never really find out whats his surprise was for her. We then fast forward to a couple years later and we find out that she is no longer talking to her best friends. So we were like what could possibly have happened. Well she chose the wrong guy for her again and is going to marry him. We find out from Ruby her secretary that he was the reason why she doesn't talk to her friends anymore. He is an arrogant dude. Anyways she goes to talk to Mack and try to get a divorce from him. Of course he doesn't want to. She doesn't remember much from that night. She grows really close to his family and they don't really know why she's there. Basically the reason why she has this life plan because she was hurt because of her mom's boyfriend. She felt that was the only way to gain some control over her life. OHH i wanted to slap that country barbie ugh ...what was her name oh Hannah. That girl was infuriating she popped up everywhere. But they eventually work their problems together. I freaking loved this book. But seriously though the wedding vows they wrote for each other was so hysterical i can't. Quote Time.... “Come on, wife. Come take a little ride with me. Let me show you all the things you'll be missing when you go back East and leave me here with a broken heart.”-Mack to Andie  “Andie: "Why can't you just let me go?" Mack: "I can't let you go because you're mine.
 OOOhh this book i swooned and laughed and teared just perfection.  You all should go and read it now.... thats an order !
