Review: She Woke up Married
If you passed me this book, wrapped in a newspaper, and pasted just the name of the book on top of it; I am telling you, I would have jumped on it. I mean, who wouldn’t want to read a book called ‘She woke up married’. There is always a promise of excitement and drama, right?
Or perhaps it’s only me who seems to think such a name gives off an aura of promised excitement. Unfortunately, for my lack of judgement, I bought the book without even turning a single page or reading at least the flow of the language. (P.S. Never buy a book unless you’ve read an excerpt.)
The only thing I got out of this book is that the name ‘Paris’ is a shortened version of Patricia. I mean, who knew? Does that mean that Paris Hilton is short for Patricia Hilton?
The book is from the perspective of two people: the boy and the girl; the beautiful Paris James who is a successful model and the equally beautiful Tuner Pruitt who is a not so successful minister.
It starts off with Paris James (Patricia Jamieson) waking up naked next to this really hot (He is only hot if you think Elvis Presley is hot-which I don’t) guy in a hotel after (you’ve guessed it) a night of incredible lovemaking. She was drunk (obvious) and had a ring around her finger (obvious-the name of the book suggests this). So the guy (her husband) turns out to be her lost friend from high school-who was (obviously) scrawny back then and now (obviously) a 6 ft 4inch Greek god. Whatsoever, Paris doesn’t want to do anything about being a wife to Tuner and she packs and walks away after telling him to annul the marriage. But Tuner thinks that this is fate that their paths have crossed again. (He is minister-got his own not-so-swanky chapel in Vegas)
So Turner runs after her to NY. Again Paris is annoyed, but she finds out that she is pregnant (obvious). And then they strike a deal that she’d have the child but then she is allowed to walk away leaving them in the care of Turner. And poor starry eyed Turner believes that he can change the ways of the spoilt, thirty year old model.
Then there are introduction to some strange characters-and there....done. Should I tell you what happens in the end? Yup, Paris changes her ways and becomes a mom! Yes! And happily ever after.
Given an option, would I read it again: Save me God. Save me. (NO)
It was one of the most horrible books I’ve read. This is just not for me. But then, I guess I have to say this, you might like it-if you like that sort with very unrealistic characters. So pick it up and read it and let me know.
