Something Borrowed by Emily Griffin Book Giveaway

Thanks everyone for entering! JenniferB is the WINNER!! of my Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin Book Giveaway! CONGRATULATIONS!!! Please contact me within 72 hours or I will have to pick a new winner. Thanks everyone for entering!

I've just finished reading, "Something Borrowed by Emily Griffin". I thoroughly enjoyed this book! I am now happy to give one of my lucky reader's a brand new copy! Lauren Weisberger, author of "The Devil Wears Prada" comments "You don't have to lust after your best friend's boyfriend to worship this book (trust me on this)... Here's a heroine you'll root for and a book you won't want to put down. I loved it."Something Borrowed Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin

My review

rating: 4 of 5 stars
I really enjoyed reading this book & Emily Griffin is an excellent writer. Though, "Something Borrowed" is somewhat cliche as far as chick literature is concerned, you can't help but be drawn into this love triangle. Rachel & Darcy are truly best friends. And as best friends there is often jealousy, resentment and competition of the others successes in life. Much like siblings with a love-bond that can't be broken and friendship that withstands almost anything. Darcy is engaged to a wonderful man named "Dex" and Rachel is to be maid of honor. Darcy has the looks, the success and gets all the breaks in life that Rachel has always wanted. You can't help but side with Rachel though as Darcy's character is somewhat unsympathetic but more so oblivious to Rachel's feelings and resentment. Dex & Rachel are also the best of friends and oblivious towards their love for each other until one evening while having one too many drinks, Rachel finds herself in bed with Dex. Both Rachel and Dex are shocked but come to realize they are meant to be together for life. Loyalty between best friends stands in the way of true love? To make this short, reader's can relate to the story and Emily does a an awesome job pulling it all together. It's hard for me to be unbiased as I have read so many romance novels. If I had read "Something Borrowed" many years back, I would most likely have given this book a 5-star rating. Storyline creativity brings me to a 4-star rating. Overall though, this is an awesome read that anyone would enjoy!
