Book Review: This Love Story Will Self Destruct

This Love Story Will Self-DestructThis Love Story Will Self-Destruct by Leslie Cohen
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This wasn’t my favorite book to read. The beginning is kind of jumbled up but when I got about halfway, I wanted to see what was going to happen.

One of my first problems with the book is that Eve told her boyfriend at the beginning of the book that her mother died when she was 10. The book is broken up into timeframes and in one of the flashbacks to when she was younger, she kept growing older and older and her mother was still alive. For some reason, that was sitting in the back of my head as I read.

The two characters, Eve and Ben, are very different and ultimately end up together and it works as it so often does in real life. They knew each other throughout college but only peripherally as they went to the same parties and hung around with the same people.

This story is about how two unlikely mates find each other. I’m glad I finished the book so I could see Eve and Ben end up together.
