Here's what I thought about this book until I was about 70% through it: nice, cute story with solid writing and a decent--albeit somewhat predictable--story. Then... KATOW!!!!! Then... Ka-KaTOW!! Some big things happened in quick succession, and I could NOT put the book down. I was so wrong about the "predictable" part, and then I was stressed out, wondering, "How is this all going to work out?!?!" Well, maybe it did, and maybe it didn't. I'm not going to tell you. You'll just have to read it for yourself. But do. Read it for yourself, that is. Because it's a sweet book. Trust me.

Her books are well written, and carefully laid out. There are no holes in her story (well, ok....one...how did Izzie end up pregnant - but that just might be my inability to read correctly) and I love her characters. This one is no exception! The Rules are a great family and I hope this becomes a series!

4.5 stars!

When Ollie, Roxy Rule's best friend forever and roommate for the past several years moves from NYC to London for his dream job, Roxy is beyond sad but ever certain that their friendship can withstand the distance until he plants a knee wobbling kiss on her right before heading to the airport leaving her stunned and speechless. Deciding a kiss is just a kiss, Roxy tries to move on. She is engaged to Ethan and Ollie is moving to London with his perfect yet bitchy girlfriend Rachel. Everything is how it should be, so why can't Roxy stop thinking about Ollie and why is their friendship suddenly strained? While Roxy is trying to figure out her own life, her younger sister Steffi and older sister Izzy both show up at her apartment in the midst of their own personal crisis expecting Roxy to be their rock. As the middle sister stuck between gorgeous yet impulsive Steffi and brilliant overworked Izzy, it's always been Roxy job's to maintain the sanity. This time, however, it will take everything Roxy has to not lose her mind as secrets are revealed and her life spirals out of control.

Wow. Usually I write my reviews immediately after finishing a book, but I had to wait on this one for a bit because I wasn't entirely sure how I felt about it. While I was drawn into the story of Roxy and Ollie immediately and really liked the character of Roxy, I kind of hated her sisters. I did not like the way they barged in on Roxy's life and did not seem the least bit appreciative of her hospitality. They assumed it was completely ok to relegate Roxy to the couch while they took over her two bedrooms - and we're not talking for just one or two nights.

I fell in love with this book from the first page. How can you not love a character named Roxy Rule? Cat Lavoie crafts such an entertaining story filled with twists and turns and a supporting cast of characters that will keep you laughing the entire time. I found myself sneaking off to read Breaking the Rules whenever I had a spare second and was both happy and disappointed when I reached the end. I promise you that you will enjoy following Roxy on her adventure of finding true love and I dare you not to develop a crush on the gorgeous Ollie. I am thankful that Cat has another book out that I can get my hands on right now! Zoey & The Moment of Zen, here I come...

*Warning! Contains spoilers.*
This was an enjoyable and surprising read, for sure, though I had some issues with the main character, Roxy. I could relate to her on many levels, but often found myself scratching my head at her behavior. First, she didn’t seem at all compatible with her fiancé, Ethan. Roxy’s non-confrontational, people pleaser personality was one that I could identify with, but her relationship with Ethan just didn’t make any sense to me. He was very controlling and rarely supportive. Not that he was a bad person, necessarily. I think he loved Roxy in his own way, but I didn’t understand this relationship. Roxy frequently mentions how much she loves him and wants to make things work with him, and yet behaves in ways that don’t show it. (Cab scene with the chef.) I understand she didn’t want to admit she had romantic feelings for her best friend, Ollie, but how does that prompt her to make out with someone who’s essentially a stranger? I think it just bothered me that she didn’t take a closer look at why she was behaving in ways to sabotage her relationship with Ethan, and thought she could just keep these things from him and it would still work out. No one is perfect and everyone makes bad choices, but I would like to have seen a little more self-reflection on her part.

I read some reviews in which readers had a big problem with the ending. This was definitely a twist I wasn’t expecting. Again, it was not an ideal situation, but people can be stupid and make horrible mistakes when they’re upset and hurt. What I found a little unbelievable was how it was wrapped up so nicely.
