Thanks to the publisher and TLC Book Tours for the free copy in exchange for my honest review.
BECAUSE I’M WORTH IT – Linda Nielsen
I was apart of the TLC Book Tours Instagram tour for this one not too long ago. To format my review post a little differently, I’ve included the synopsis as well!
Here’s the synopsis:
An impressive contract combined with lavish perks influence Skye Topple to marry the boss’ daughter, Delaney Mae Anne Covington, a self-centered and spoiled southern belle. The “perfect” wedding is threatened when an alarming secret refuses to stay hidden. With no regard for anyone other than herself and her daughter, Delaney’s alcoholic mother takes control, inserting irrational solutions that leave mother and daughter looking foolish while a baby’s life, a grandmother’s love, and a man’s career hang in the balance. This is certainly not a North meets South story—more like South moves North and meets West, where what works for one family may not work for another. Choices must be made. Lives will be changed. One thing is for sure… Skye is smack dab in the middle when Big Sur life meets country club values.
My Thoughts: 3.5/5 stars!
Normally this wouldn’t be in my typical genre sphere, but I’m always for expanding out from the thrillers and horror when the synopsis intrigues me. BECAUSE I’M WORTH IT by Linda Nielsen is a combination of a couple different genres. There’s a humorous side to this women’s fiction novel, and there’s definitely drama!
Skye Topple has agreed to marry Delaney Mae Anne Covington – her beauty can’t save her from how spoiled and self-centered she is. As they begin to plan the wedding, old family secrets are beginning to surface and that brings Delaney’s mother into the picture. Terri Sue Ellen is a whole other kind of awful. She’s controlling and just as spoiled as her daughter is. Her over-the-top ways make her and her daughter look like fools most of the time and she is the polar opposite of Skye’s mother. Will Skye and Delaney’s relationship last? Could this arrangement ruin his career?
Bravo to Nielsen for the incredible characterization. Each character has enough development to where you really get to know them without it being too much. Delaney and her mother, Terri, are quite the piece of work. Obnoxious and intriguing at the same time – you’ll find yourself drawn into their nonsense from the start. For those looking for something with some humor and plenty of drama, then this one needs to be on your summer TBR!
