The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo – Taylor Jenkins Reid

This is an absolutely incredible book and, at the same time, not at all my kind of book and one I had to really work at reading. I’m glad I did push through because it’s a powerful, important and moving book but my complete lack of interest in celebrities made it very slow going.

Evelyn is an icon. She is strong, complex, smart, ruthless, loving. She is a character I admire and respect, and I could certainly learn a lot from her!

I appreciated that the book lives in the shades of grey, there is no good or bad person, no good or bad deed. Evelyn has always known that and she has made peace with it, putting her in a powerful position to live her life with no regrets.

I’m not sure I have the words to really talk about the book itself because it is so many things so beautifully done. Friendship, love, ambition, desire, heartbreak and so much more.
Through Evelyn we are forced to consider our own beliefs about life and people, and to see that nothing is ever black and white.

Even if you, like me, are not remotely interested in celebrity drama, it has so much to say about so many important topics that I would still recommend it without hesitation.

5/5 TeePots, read this book!

A great, kinky, easy read with a warm and lovable lead male character and a realistic, relatable submissive woman. I found all the characters engaging and felt like I was really in the club.
