Review: It Takes Two by Jenny Holiday


It Takes Two by Jenny Holiday is available now!!

Read my thoughts on this charming rom-com!



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.


Y’all don’t know this because I totally failed at writing a review of the first book in this series, One and Only (in a nutshell: really liked it), but I found a new author (to me) and she’s great at making me snort-laugh and swoon so I’m a little in love with her already. It’s a bit early to go around proclaiming my love for her writing since I’ve only read two of her books (is it early though? Now that I think about it, not really) but let me tell you, what I’ve read is dang good and I’m for sure reading all of her upcoming books. 

Anyway, onto the important things about IT TAKES TWO. Have you ever found yourself wanting to read a fun yet a bit serious romance story about a girl who once was shy and sweet then got her heart broken and became a strong independent woman who doesn’t let anyone in so they can’t break her heart again and the boy, now man, who broke her heart without realizing? A story that also happens to feature diverse and interesting characters, a bridezilla who doesn’t know she’s a bridezilla, and contains a lot of bickering and rivalry between the main characters? Sure you have. And lucky for you, IT TAKES TWO is all that. 

I laughed, I swooned, I blushed, I cried a little and I related. And I really think most of you are going to experience similar emotions so please pick up this beautifully written rom-com. I had the best time reading it and I want you to have a great time too.


Massive thanks to Forever/Hachette Book Group for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
