You Again? Kindle Edition
From the bestselling author of Dumped, Actually comes a hilarious, heartfelt story about marriage, divorce and what the hell happens next.
Amy and Joel’s honeymoon in the Maldives was the perfect week of love, sun, sex and a free minibar…but unfortunately, it was also the high point of a marriage that quickly descended into an absolute disaster zone.
Eight years on, they’re back in paradise, trying to recreate the magic with new partners. What a crying shame they’ve picked the same week to do it…
Trapped together on an island small enough to spit across with the wind behind you, Amy and Joel pick up right where they left off: at total loggerheads. And so begins a hideous week of rivalry, one-upmanship and score-settling—as each tries to prove they’ve now comprehensively won at life.
The thing is, hurt and pain are strongest where there was once love. And what if being back in this island paradise, with all its wonderful memories, sets sparks flying in more ways than one?

Joel and Amy, exes who'd gone through a nasty divorce and had subsequently found new partners, coincidentally find themselves on the same tiny island while on holiday. I found the beginning to be a bit slow, and their prank war a bit childish, however, the second half of the book definitely made up for the pacing in the end. I found both main characters kind of... shallow? I'm not entirely sure how to describe it (or if there even is a word to collectively describe it), but they weren't my favourite people but they managed to somewhat redeem themselves towards the end.
I really loved Ray, Amy's fiance. He was definitely one of the more likeable, open-minded characters who provided clarity for Amy throughout the book. In saying that, Cara, Joel's fiance, wasn't my cup of tea.
I think this book was perfect for anyone who loves one-liners and witty dialogue. If you're after a romcom that doesn't necessarily end in a HEA, you'll enjoy it!
Special thanks to NetGalley and Lake Union Publishing for the ARC!
Nick has finely tuned characters who have realistic thoughts. There is pathos and bathos. There are a couple of incidental scenes that stray into stereotype humour but fortunately these are few. Of the islanders Joel muses that he did not meet the Islanders in their homes.
I enjoyed this book. As Goldilocks would say it was just right.
