Review -- Walking Up A Slide by Daley James Francis

Walking Up a Slide: A Rom-Com for Anyone Who Has Ever Pined Over 'The One That Got Away'Walking Up a Slide: A Rom-Com for Anyone Who Has Ever Pined Over 'The One That Got Away' by Daley James Francis
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I was really excited when I saw this book.  I love romantic comedies and I had high hopes for this book.  I was a bit disappointed.

Jason is a batchelor and has been for a while.  He is a duty manager at the local hotel and is currently living with his two closest friends, Sean and Jim.  When Jason receives a wedding invitation in the mail from his ex-girlfriend, Lila Holmes, his world goes into a tailspin thinking about the one that got away.  His friends are on a quest to find him a plus one, while Jason is wallowing in the sorrow of knowing he would not be the one to marry Lila.

This book did not have very much romance in it and to me it wasn't really that funny.   I didn't find myself laughing out loud or really connecting with the characters at all.  On the positive side though, I didn't stop reading the book.  I did want to know what was going to happen next and how Jason was going to actually face his ex when the time came.  There were a ton of movie references in this book which really didn't add to the story.  I will read another book by this author, though.
