Review: It Takes Two by Jenny Holiday

Posted on

In this hilarious romantic comedy, USA Today bestselling author Jenny Holiday proves that what happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas…
All’s fair in love and war
Wendy Liu should be delighted to be her best friend’s maid of honor. But after years spent avoiding the bride’s brother – aka the boy who once broke her heart – she’s now trapped with him during an endless amount of wedding festivities. Luckily she’s had time to perfect her poker face, and engaging Noah Denning in a little friendly competition might just prove that she’s over him for good…
Noah Denning is determined to make his little sister’s wedding memorable. But it seems Wendy is trying to outdo him at every turn. Challenging each other was always something he and Wendy did right, so when she proposes they compete to see who can throw the best bachelor or bachelorette party in Sin City, Noah takes the bait – and ups the stakes. Because this time around, he wants Wendy for keeps. And when you’re fighting for love, all bets are off.

My Review

It Takes Two is the second book in The Bridesmaids Behaving Badly Series and can be read as a stand-alone novel. It Takes Two follows the story of Noah and Wendy. Noah and Wendy have known each other for forever. In Wendy’s eyes, Noah is the one she’s always wanted, but he broke her heart. Wendy has spent many years trying to avoid Noah. But when Noah’s sister gets married, staying away is no longer an option…..

It Takes Two is a super sweet romantic comedy with a bit of forbidden flare. I’m a big fan of the friends/bff’s older brother troupe and this one was a lot of fun. Noah and Wendy fought like cats and dog and were always trying to out do each other. I loved watching these two interact. Their banter was entertaining and led to some seriously delicious tension.

Wendy is the sweetest girl. She’s hard working, smart, isn’t afraid of a challenge, and is a fan of casual sex. That brings us to Noah. Noah is hard-working, dependable, protective and a serial dater. He has a bit of an attitude when it comes to causal sex, but doesn’t judge others on their preferences. These two have so much in common and such explosive chemistry. I really enjoyed the two of them together and loved watching them try to figure things out.

It Takes Two was a really fun book to spend my day swept up in. I loved the characters and the story-line. There is a bit of an insta-love quality to this story, but I think it works really well. It Takes Two had just the right amount of romance, steamy moments, laughter and light drama. I think book is a perfect summer read that will leave you with a smile on your face.
