Married by Sunday
(Soul Mates in Romeo #5)
by Sarah Ready
Opposites clash in this wild, unpredictable rom com, where two strangers team up to stop a wedding at all costs.
Nathaniel Barry is monochromatic, meticulous, and uptight. Izzy Harris is wild, unpredictable, and free-spirited. Nathaniel has a trendy apartment, a successful career, and a girlfriend he’s about to propose to. Izzy has no home, no career, and nobody special to hold her down.
They’re polar-opposites in every way.
So when they sit next to each other on the train to Romeo, New York they clash from the very start. Naturally, Nathaniel decides he wants nothing to do with Izzy. And Izzy…well, she has a different opinion.
No matter how much Nathaniel protests, Izzy knows it was fate that brought them together. Nathaniel’s girlfriend just ran off to marry another man, and Izzy swears she’ll help Nathaniel win her back. They have three days to stop the ill-advised wedding. It should be easy. It should be simple. But when two polar opposites team-up to stop a wedding, there’s only one guarantee – that nothing will go as planned.

My Rate: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5
I loved this book, pretty much everything about it. I cannot find something bad to say 😂, so here is a list of all the things I loved:
Okay, I love this type of grumpy. He is not rude, he is not unpleasant, but his joy is reserved. I LOVED the scenes where he smiled, only for Izzy. And his smile became something so precious.
This entire book is about the tiny special moments that are often overlooked. And I love those moments. I love the tiny touches and the thrills and the small smiles that mean everything.
I loved the languages of love and the teaching each other how to fall in love, this whole book is a lesson on Romance (in real life and literature) and I think that men should read it and learn from it…
I already knew that Sarah Ready was an amazing author because Josh and Gemma Make a Baby became one of my favorite books of all time, but I didn’t know that all her books were got get me like this.
This had the perfect balance between deep, sweet, romantic, magical, and also sad.
I laughed and I cried during this book (and it is hard to make me cry while reading), and I felt so much joy and butterflies.
I loved the Fate and Soul Mates narrative, that it felt more like a personal belief than something magical, but that it works in the end. I love the grumpy and sunshine and the reflecting over your life aspect.
Equality rate: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5
I went through the same thing Nate went, staying with someone that didn’t make you happy because it was the plan. I understood him and also felt seen and understood. It is really hard to give up on your plans or to accept that they were not right, but it’s what’s gonna make you live a good life.
Ultimately I loved that this was an insta love that wasn’t actually insta love. I don’t enjoy that trope, but it would have worked here, but I loved how the author solved it, how they worked their own problems, on their own and came back together better, by themselves.
It was just perfect.
Adjectives and general thoughts: AMAZING, sweet, deep and so so delicious and romantic.
Fall in love today!

Bye sassy people!
- I know that some comments I make about decent guys on my posts are the bare minimum a guy should do, so no, they don’t deserve to be treated like gods for doing the minimum, but at the same time, I’ve read a lot of sexist books and I appreciate authors who make characters that can serve as role models and examples of how a decent guy acts and what a loving and respectful relationship looks like. I believe we should always encourage these authors and bring attention to the ones that still write sexist characters and stories.
- I make a lot of comments about sexism and healthy role models in books, but a lot of times these characteristics don’t make the book a bad book and definitely don’t make the author a bad author. Please never shame these authors and these books for these comments, I simply feel that we need to have awareness of the less than ideal situations some books bring us, and not use the romanticized problem as examples of what a relationship should be. Most of these authors are still amazing, and the content they write doesn’t reflect directly with their personal views and opinions. Always make sure to respect and be kind to everyone, even while criticizing their content.

One of my goals in analysing my readings was to talk about important topics, like feminist and consent, because literature, art and culture influence us, and I believe we should always encorage authors who talk about this topics.
