( BOOKS I Owe You One ) Í Sophie Kinsella – imagesclip.com
His novel were SO beyond basic Can I talk about how much of a douche bag Ryan was Seb Ok seriously I felt like the conversations were robotic between Fixie and Seb The author tried to add a romantic aspect between Seb and Fixie What was that YIKES The downfall of this book was characters So surface level and there was zero feeling to any of the characters I was beyond disappointed in this book This book definitely wasn t for to any of the characters I was beyond disappointed in this book This book definitely wasn t for stars for me on this oneHuge thank you to Random House Publishing and Netgalley for the arc in exchange for my honest reviewPublication date 2519Published to GR 12218 SighThis review is difficult to write I adore Sophie Kinsella s books for many reasons Unfortunately I found I Owe You One to be a letdown I had an issue with the characters the plot and the romance I started off reading with an eye roll with the introduction of Fixie and her cliched nickname Right away I knew something was off I would have appreciated something a little bit clever and nuanced than a character who is defined by a stupid nickname Fixie s character annoyed me in the beginning but she did grow on me She does go through the typical Kinsella transformation and develop somewhat The side characters are uneven and encompass one cliche after another Then there is the plot It s ust one giant mess The romance Fixie s relationship with Seb was bizarre to say the least One minute he s dating someone else then he is dating Fixie then they break up and he is back to the old girlfriend and then he is back with Fixie ust like that There was very little tension and depth to their relationship leaving much to be desired There are some bright moments that shine through and reminded me of classic Kinsella However these moments were not enough to save I Owe You One I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley and Random House Publishing Group in exchange for an honest review DNF at 25% This is the third Sophie Kinsella book that I ve DNFd so I think it is officially time to call it uits on her books She clearly is ust not for me Womp All of the snow we ve been hit with recently has given me the opportunity to read like a mad woman so I ve been flying through my NetGalley backlist in hopes of keeping up with my arc schedule I m not sure if reading The Lost Man by Jane Harper has put me in a slump but I ve been finding it difficult to get into a new book and enjoy it from beginning to end Perhaps it s my growing sense of noticing the little things I was previously able to overlook or maybe it s ust the fact that I m needing to space out my ARCs with some older reads but I thought for sure this one would be a hit as it s been ages since I ve picked up anything romantic or humorous I struggled to connect with Fixie and found it difficult to root for a woman who lets everyone walk all over her This one

375If there is one word to sum this book up with it would be cute Fixie matches her name perfectly She has an intense drive to always fix something if she feels it s out of place An itch that unless scratched will dive her crazy Sometimes this obsession will get her in way over her headsitting in a coffee way over her headSitting in a coffee she saves a strangers lap top from a sudden rush of water seeping from a collapsed ceiling Which introduces Fixie to the lap tops owner Sebastian He s so grateful he immediately writes tops owner Sebastian He s so grateful he immediately writes IOU on her coffee sleeve Fixie never really considered cashing in the IOU but when an old crush Ryan comes waltzing into town desperate for a obFixie wants to help It s what she does It s who she is She immediately seeks out Sebastian to cash in her IOU for Ryan Do you believe in fateIt was sweet it was cute and oh so endearing While it was somewhat predictable that was ok I mean most rom coms are That s why we love them As the story line unfolded I grew to love Fixie and all her uirks This was my first ever read of Sophie Kinsella and I am a new fan I will definitely be watching for her next releaseA fun buddy read with Susanne Thank you to NetGalley Random House Publishing House and Sophie Kinsella for an ARC to read and review 45 starsI ve read most of Sophie Kinsella s novels even some that she wrote under the name Madeleine Wickham and this one ranks right near the top It really seemed to showcase all the things I have previously loved in her books but yet also didn t feel something I have read countless times before The main character clicked with me and I enjoyed her interactions with her family and love interestFixie Farr Has Always Tried To Follow Her has always tried to follow her father s wishes with putting family first But why should she always be the one pulling up the slack at the family s housewares store when her brother and sister get to do whatever the hell they want The problem with Fixie is she ust can t say the word no and everyone likes to take advantage of that fact While in a coffee shop Fixie manages to save the day and a handsome stranger thanks her by giving her an IOU on a coffee sleeve She brushes it off as a oke but the she gets thinking the she actually considers taking the man up on his offer He might be able to provide a solution to her problems and get people to stop coming to her because she is Ms Fixit It was pretty easy to relate to Fixie because most of us have felt like our kindness was being taking advantage of at one point or another So right off the bat she was an easy person to root for and someone you wanted to be happy Sometimes with the author s books I feel like the stories and characters can be a little over the top but this one seemed toned down in that respect It had a little bit of uirkiness but in a fun way and in no way did it hurt the story While Fixie growing as a person is certainly a key part of the story the romance is really what kept me reading I thought Fixie and her love interest had good chemistry and I liked seeing the ups and downs of their relationshipOverall another fun read by Sophie Kinsella If you have loved her other books I highly recommend checking this one outThank you to Netgalley and the publisher for providing me with a free advance digital copy in exchange for an honest review This is awfulI considered giving it two stars because I can t believe I DARE give a Sophie Kinsella book a one star rating But look reading this book is absolutely pointless I m not even enjoying it I ust stopped at page 216 because it s not fun it s pretty sad and I feel so so bad for Fixie whose name I absolutely hate I mean it is a Sophie Kinsella so it s a fast story and full of drama but this time the drama is cringe worthy and the way Fixie s family is treating her is HORRENDOUS I didn t crack a smile one single time And I needed of Fixie and Seb Who cares about that annoying and self obsessed Hollywood erk Not me I m done with this book But I m not done with Sophie Kinsella Christmas.
