Blog tour: You, Again

Welcome to the blog tour for You, Again by Kate Goldbeck!

More about the book…

Ari, a free-spirited struggling comedian, likes to keep things casual, and never sleeps over after hooking up. Josh, born-and-bred Manhattanite, has ambitious plans to take the culinary world by storm, to find The One and live happily-ever-after.

After a confrontational first meeting (at the apartment of the woman they are both sleeping with), Ari and Josh never expect their paths to cross again, but years later, as they're both reeling from ego-bruising breakups, a chance encounter leads to a surprising connection: friendship. Turns out, spending time with your former nemesis can be fun when you're both too sad and miserable to hate each other.

And as odd as it seems, they become friends-without-benefits, finding comfort in late night Netflix binges, swiping through each other's online dating profiles, and bickering endlessly on their phones across boroughs. It's better than romance. Until one night, the unspoken boundaries of their platonic relationship begin to blur...

More about the author…

Kate Goldbeck grew up in a literal village and dreamed of living in New York, even though her parents warned her that the apartments on Friends were not realistic.

In college, she studied film and art history—limiting her employment prospects to “film museum.”

Since earning a master’s degree at an engineering school, she’s designed award-winning museum exhibits and immersive experiences all over the world.

She adores bantering with her partner, falling asleep to British audiobook narrators, and scratching dogs behind the ears.

My impressions…

I don’t read a huge amount of romance books but, when I do, I choose them well! There was something about this novel that intrigued me and I’m so glad I picked it up. People talk a lot about tropes these days so, if you’re into ‘enemies to friends’ books, this is the one you should be grabbing. I am more inclined to define a book about how it makes me feel so, if you like a story to make you smile and want to snuggle up with a comfy blanket wrapped up around you, this is, again, what you’re looking for. Relatable characters, a fantastic portrayal of New York and healthy dose of romance!

Three words to describe it. Romantic. Witty. Unique.

Do I like the cover? Yes, it’s cute!

Have I read any other books by the same author? No, this is a debut novel. Give me more, please!
