Was it just me or did I read an entirely different book than everyone else? I found myself more often than not frustrated with Sloane and Myles relationship. Like pull my hair out type of frustration and it took a hell of a long time for Sloane to finally and I mean finally step back and cut the cord on the disastrous marriage, and that was a little over the halfway mark.

I couldn't pinpoint anything worth mentioning on the positive side due to so many things about the book I didn't like: Sloane and Myles (for obvious reasons) and the marriage itself, the useless and unlikable secondary characters, the storyline that's seemed to be relatable but failed to capture any interest, and then the ending that failed to meet any of my expectations.

Moreso, it's mind-boggling how this "hilarious rom-com" description is what initially brought me in but going through the motions, I thought for sure I was reading the wrong novel. Where was the romance? Where was the comedy? Please tell me wheeeeeeere?! It's like in place of the actual romance and comedy portions, the author included far more tedious and redundant scenes could have easily been cut out to make this a smooth sailing ride, and the slowpacing storyline was such a drag. Like more of a 'why must you torture me' type of draaaaaaaaaaaaaag.

Consequently, rather if it's unpopular opinion or not, "No, We Can't Be Friends" was everything that could go wrong with a rom-com.

I have read other books by Ranald and it was interesting to see her still in this same universe. This book focuses on Sloane who we met in "The Truth About Gemma Grey" and was referenced in "Sorry Not Sorry". If you read those two books you will already know about what this story will get into. In "Sorry Not Sorry" the lead character had an affair with a married man. In "No, We Can't be Friends" we follow that married man, Myles, and his wife Sloane. The story is told via Sloane's POV. I did like Sloane, but thought that a lot of her personal history should have been thought on more for also how she reacted to what was going on with her and Myles. I thought that the secondary character of Bianca got off way too lightly. And I thought that Ranald tried to wrap up the whole Myles thing too quickly too.

In "No, We Can't Be Friends" we follow Sloane who is happily married to her husband Myles. They start trying to have a family, but so far Sloane has not become pregnant. Sloane and Myles are also dealing with a huge house renovation. Sloane is starting to feel something is off with Myles. She starts to wonder if he's having an affair and thinks it could be with one of her frenemies, Bianca.

I have to say that I didn't really get Sloane's job in this one. I had a better understanding of her work in and outs in "The Truth About Gemma Grey." I did think that Ranald set things up well enough to show why Sloane fell for Myles and ended up following him to England later to live and work. I just wish that Sloane's past had been incorporated more smoothly. We get a lot of jump back and forths about Sloane's mother and why Sloane feels a certain way towards an aging movie star.

The secondary characters needed more development. We get a last minute shot of this is why Bianca is not all that she seems that I didn't like because it doesn't explain why this character keeps doing terrible ass things. I also think we should have had more time with Myles and Sloane when they were happy.

The book did make me think though. Without getting into it very much, Ranald shows a great case of gaslighting and I wish had spelled things out in those terms so that Sloane could have had a conversation with herself about that.

The ending felt a little too rushed though. ( )
