Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars
I haven’t read a Megan Green book since her Washington Rampage series, so I was excited to get my hands on Nobody But You. This is a wonderful story about former best friends who reconnect 12 years after high school. MG magically weaves Maddy and Mason’s insecurities together with who-they-were and the who-they-are-now.
The misunderstanding that led to the fracture in their friendship back in high school could have easily been avoided if Maddy talked to Mason about it rather than run off and literally never return to school. Two similar situations arise several months into their relationships when Maddy finds out some information about the wife who abandoned Mason, and then again when his past impacts their present. But this time around, Maddy is mature enough to confront it head-on. Her insecurities about being the nerdy fat kid are ever-present, as are Mason’s fears of being abandoned by the woman he loves.
It’s so easy for Maddy and Mason to fall back into the routine of their friendship, and I totally shipped them as a couple. They have a great rapport, the story is beautifully paced, and the characters are relatable and likable.
It all begins with Mason’s adorable daughter, Hannah, finding an abandoned, sick dog. That dog brings “Hope” to them all.
I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
