    First Comes Marriage wasof a philosophical exploration of love and life than a romance novel It was devastatingly poignant and ruthlessly human in its portrayal of the characters It really hurt to read this.Elliot was arrogant and selfish at first He was cruelly honest with his opinions about Vanessa, remarking that she was plain, that no one would ever find her attractive etc etc Vanessa was a strong woman battling with her insecurities She was determined to be happy despite of the p First Comes Marriage wasof a philosophical explorat...

    This book is PERFECT if you are doing a romance novel drinking game Every time a character mentioned how un pretty Vanessa was, I wanted to take a swig of something It seemed that it was mentioned every few pages Okay, I get it She s not the most attractive thing to ever walk the earth, but come on, must you keep reminding me It got very tedious and distracted from what little of the story there was Also, it felt like the author got trunky in the end as mostly everything was nicely wound This book is PERFECT if you are doing a romance novel drinking game Every time a character mentioned how un pretty Vanessa was, I wanted to take a swig of something It seemed that it was mentioned every few pages Okay, I get it She s not the most attractive thing to ever walk the earth, but come on, must you keep remi...
