Read full description of the books:
What would you do if some random, albeit, fine ass dude just walked up to you and said Marry Me. Or is it Marry Me? Unless he was Daniel Henney, I would’ve been like Hell nah fool, and kept it moving (like so many of the women did before he got that coveted yes). I call my review Organic Love because Luke and Lissy (I prefer Lissette but she prefers Lissy) are literally two strangers on the street who meet by fate and embark on a lifelong journey that some couples who’ve known each other for years can’t even do.
So basically, Luke’s brother Matt has the opportunity to advance his filmmaking career by taking a worldwide institution-marriage-and flipping it on its ear. Luke and Matt’s older brother Nick is getting married, and Matt has the grand idea of documenting the dichotomy between traditional and unconventional marriages-not weddings-but marriages. The only thing is, Matt needs a couple willing to marry at first sight and be willing to be filmed in the process. Who would be a more fitting choice than his brother Luke. Oh, and there’s some monetary perks to this arrangement as well…
Lissy is down on her luck and licking her wounds after a failed relationship and being unemployed for six months. When a handsome stranger approaches her and proposes, she almost immediately says yes. I mean, given her current situation, she doesn’t have a whole hell of a lot to lose. Or does she?
What ensues is the slow and almost methodical process of Luke and Lissy getting to know each other. I had to constantly remind myself why isn’t she or he…when I remembered they’re still strangers for all intents and purposes. They both have issues which could derail their coupling, and it’s interesting to read how it all plays out. We are the audience to Matt’s documentary, and this story is a refreshing take on coupledom in general. The dialog between Luke and Lissy is so humorous and delightful because there’s no pretense. The wedding night scene was hilarious and weird yet genuine all at the same time, again reminding myself, These are two strangers….just because they’re married doesn’t mean they should already be doing XYZ…The 20 Questions scene: Pivotal. Raven has stepped up her game in the romance department: SCHMOKIN HOT!!!!
Overall, this was a good story. There was some repetitive dialog (lip-chewing and constant blushing) and a bit long-winded to me for the first half of the story, because, again this is an organic coupling. While I liked Luke well enough, he wasn’t the dreamy hero for me. There was just too much history and unresolved feelings between him and his ex that got in the way of his relationship with Lissy, and I was ready to commence a beat down on both of them. With that being said, the dialogue was very fresh, and the supporting characters made the story even more enjoyable. They do not overshadow the main couple, but they do play a prominent role in their lives and set the stage for future stories to come. I can’t imagine growing up one of 5 sisters! I had to make a list of their and Luke’s brother’s names and ages to keep up. If you do read this story, the author has created an amazing Pinterest storyboard (can be found via Raven St. Pierre) that offers insight and perspective on who inspired the characters.
