Book Details

Will They or Won’t They

Amelia Lang’s life is kind of a mess. She’s stuck living at home with her narcissistic mother. Her tech bro ex-boyfriend deliberately sabotages her at work, and she gets fired after throwing a mug at his head (it’s okay! She missed.) Then she has a major falling out with her best friend. So Amelia does what Amelia does best: She runs away.

After traveling around Europe for three months, she settles on a small Greek island to reset her life and figure out what’s next. But after too much retsina, she gets tricked into marrying James, another guest at the hotel, who is perfectly nice—but perfectly boring. To top it off, they are gifted the very hotel they’re staying in—a hotel they don’t want that is in desperate need of some TLC. They agree to keep the hotel open through the busy summer season for the sake of the island’s quirky but well-meaning residents, after which Amelia plans to return home to start rebuilding her disastrous life.

Amelia and James must work together to determine how to get out of their situation—easier said than done for Amelia, who’s started to feel a strong spark of attraction for James. But Amelia is sure her real life is waiting for her back in San Francisco. Is it time for Amelia to return home or could this be the second chance at a new life she didn’t know she wanted?

The Review

Hello Book friends!

Will They or Won’t They focuses on two Hollywood stars who debuted in a teen paranormal drama TV show. The lead female leaves the show after the 5th season, but comes back to reboot her career and possibly her romance with her co-star.


Now, let’s chat about the book itself.

What I liked:
I’m always a fan of lovers to enemies to lovers trope. You’re left guessing at every turn of the page, will these two get together?

What I also enjoyed was how our two MC’s question their career choices. They both embark on a journey of sorts, wondering if their careers are fulfilling enough while searching for their own passion, not only for each other, but for their separate careers.

What didn’t work for me:
I get that this was a tug-of-war between two people who have a past romance history. Who are working on a possible second chance romance. But when the uncertainty of being together is the entire book (I’m aware of the title 😂) I honestly, started to lose interest.

Halfway through the book I was already inwardly screaming can we PLEASE pick if they will be together or not because I’d really like to get to the ending preferably with a happy ending…

If you love Hollywood romances, dual POV’s, and enemies-to-lovers definitely give this one a try.

Happy Reading ~ Cece
