Brilliantly executed and endlessly funny, this pause-resistant debut showcases one of the most winning, irrepressible voices since Helen Fielding's Bridget Jones.
I'm getting married.
It's a disaster.
Meet Lily Wilder - New Yorker, lawyer, and bride-to-be. She has a dream job, great friends, a family full of charismatic and loving women, and a total catch of a fiancé.
Also? She has no business getting married.
Lily's fiancé, Will, is a brilliant, handsome archaeologist. Lily is sassy, impulsive, fond of a good drink (or five), and completely incapable of being faithful to just one man. Lily likes Will, but does she love him? Will loves Lily, but does he really know her? As the wedding approaches, Lily's nights - and mornings, and afternoons - of booze, laughter, and questionable decisions become a growing reminder that the happiest day of her life might turn out to be her worst mistake yet.
Bridget Jones's Diary meets Where'd You Go, Bernadette in this joyous and ribald debut, introducing a self-assured protagonist whose choices raise fresh questions about gender, politics, monogamy, and the true meaning of fidelity.
"I have not laughed this hard or this much at a book since Bridget Jones's Diary. I Take You is wickedly smart, hilariously funny, sexy, clever, and stupidly accomplished for a first novel. In short, the most enjoyable read I have had in YEARS. I completely loved it." (Jane Green, New York Times best-selling author of Tempting Fate)
"HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I Take You is the funniest book I've read all year. I drank four bottles of chardonnay by myself because I couldn't get to a book club fast enough. Eliza Kennedy makes infidelity sexy again!" (Gary Shteyngart, New York Times best-selling author of Super Sad True Love Story)
"I Take You is sexy and smart in equal measure - Eliza Kennedy's heroine Lily Wilder is great fun to be around, even if she's not always sure who she's taking to bed. Kennedy's witty and brash voice will win you over by the end of the first page." (Emma Straub, New York Times best-selling author of The Vacationers)

I kept waiting for the main character of the book to come to her senses but then I realized, this was a book about narcissists. The only person who seems to have had some sort of epiphany about bad behavior shows up towards the end. I only liked the main character during a single courtroom and that was because the opposing attorney was more of an ass than she was!
No. I believe in chick lit!
She is why I got this book. I have loved her narrations of other more enjoyable books. She is just fab.
I hope not. Why would anyone care about these awful people?
