Book Review: Speak Now: or Forever Hold Your Peace by Becky Monson

Release date: April 9 2015 Sales Rank 35,419

If there’s one thing that Bridgette Reynolds has learned recently, it’s that the perfect shoes, the perfect hair, and the perfect dress do not make for the perfect proposal. In fact, sometimes they make for the not-so-perfect breakup. 

Now, Bridgette must do everything in her power to win Adam back. She knows they are meant to be. And nothing will stand in her way—not her friends, not her grandmother, not even the fact that Adam is now engaged to Serene after a whirlwind romance. 
Focused on her plan to win Adam back, Bridgette isn’t expecting Ian—her college best friend, her love, her big regret—to come back into her life. They sink back into their comfortable friendship as if no time has passed at all, making Bridgette start to question her feelings for Adam. But Ian has a few secrets of his own . . . secrets that could shatter their friendship once and for all. 
Bridgette has to make some major decisions—should she speak now? Or forever hold her peace?

About the Author: Becky Monson
By day, Becky Monson is a mother to three young children, and a wife. By night, she escapes with reading books and writing. In her debut novel, Becky uses humor and true-life experiences to bring her characters to life. She loves all things chick-lit (movies, books, etc.), and wishes she had a British accent. She has recently given up Diet Coke for the fiftieth time and is hopeful this time will last... but it probably won't.  

My Review: What a splendid story!  It has all the capture of a ill fated love story in the 21st century.  I loved how the story would jump between current and clips of the past to give further depth to the characters and show the subtle growth of their love.  I would find it hard to say anything negative about this story really as it was so entertaining I stayed up well into the morning saying to myself .... just one more page....just one more page....and finished it close to 5am. Wonderful writing style that makes for an easy reading. I give this book a rare 5 out of 5 even though it isn't in my personal genre of preferred books...well done!
