“F*** you for breaking my f***ing heart…” This is the heart-breaking yet hilarious story of Jimmy Rowland and Erin Poppet. Jimmy Rowland has the perfect life. He works in his favourite bar by day, and by night he lives his dream with his two best friends in his band. Erin Poppet crashes into Jimmy’s life like a beautiful storm. He falls in love with her as quickly and as deeply as possible. The intensity of their relationship leaves Jimmy with a broken heart, a useless vacuum and a demon inside him. Jimmy’s dream life quickly becomes a nightmare when he loses his dream job and destroys his musical career live on stage. When he hits rock bottom, he decides he only has one choice, to rebuild his life from scratch. He has to get back the life he had before Erin. This is her story. This is his story. This is their story. Or as Jimmy would say… “… this is the story of You, Me and Us.”
I was lucky enough to be part of the tour for the very brilliant you, me and us at the beginning of December. However I didn’t have time to write a review but I did host a great guest post from Liam.
From the synopsis about the book, I pre ordered it and it jumped to the top of my TBR pile!
So I treated myself over Christmas whilst I had a gap in blog tours and here follows my review!
I adored this book, it was so easy to read, I felt like I knew Jimmy by the end of the first chapter. He reminded me of so many men I have met over the years. Confident on the outside with an inner insecurity that’s masked by a top sense of humour.
Liam has managed to write a book that makes you feel like you are reading about a friends life.
You, me and us is the story of a mad, heady all consuming relationship, you know the type. The type that you think is going to last forever, the type that makes you lose your mind for a while, the type where you give someone the power to destroy you.
It was refreshing to read about this from the male perspective.
Erin, the main female character is someone you initially like but slowly grow to dislike. This for me was because I liked Jimmy so much and I wanted him to come out in top!
I can’t recommend this book enough, it’s funny, heartbreaking and real!
5* review from me, I can’t wait for Liam’s next book!
