You Love Me by Caroline Kepnes

Book Summary

Joe is done with the cities. He’s done with the muck and the posers, done with Love. Now, he’s saying hello to nature, to simple pleasures on a cozy island in the Pacific Northwest. For the first time in a long time, he can just breathe.

He gets a job at the local library—he does know a thing or two about books—and that’s where he meets her: Mary Kay DiMarco. Librarian. Joe won’t meddle, he will not obsess. He’ll win her the old-fashioned way . . . by providing a shoulder to cry on, a helping hand. Over time, they’ll both heal their wounds and begin their happily ever after in this sleepy town.

The trouble is . . . Mary Kay already has a life. She’s a mother. She’s a friend. She’s . . . busy.

True love can only triumph if both people are willing to make room for the real thing. Joe cleared his decks. He’s ready. And hopefully, with his encouragement and undying support, Mary Kay will do the right thing and make room for him.

    Joe lovers, don’t kill me for this rating… I absolutely loved You, and Hidden Bodies was a fun sequel but I felt like Joe didn’t particularly feel like *him* and if I’m being completely honest, and after much thought, I preferred the season two of the adaptation better than the read. BUT, I also knew I had to continue the series so here I am. I couldn’t help myself and read this one as soon as it showed up on my doorstep.
    Unfortunately, it was fun to be in Joe’s head for only a few minutes. I enjoy his inner monologue that weirdly makes sense, even in his own twisted way. But it seemed to take forever to get to any *fun* part of this read. A lot of back and forth and repetition and well, it’s exactly what you would expect. More Joe doing what Joe does… in a new town, reminiscing over Love and Forty while concentrating on the new *love of his life*. You can probably figure out what’s going to happen because it’s basically the same story in a new spot with a new woman and new people getting in the way. I was hoping it would go completely sideways and kept waiting for that shoe to drop but instead… whatever dropped, I wasn’t picking up.

    Listen, you cannot take away the sheer brilliance that is Kepnes and the way she brings you a story. She’s truly talented and I will read whatever she puts out there. And yes, most likely will pick up the next in this series, if there is one. Joe is like that ex-boyfriend you just can’t shake, even when you start to think he’s tired and not worth it. If you’re a fan of his and love being in his head, you’re gonna love this read.

    3.5 rounded up to 4…

    Joe Goldberg is back!

    Please do yourself a favor and go into this one blind. If you haven’t read the series, I recommend starting with You. This wouldn’t make a good stand alone book.

    This was one of my most anticipated reads for 2021, loving both the books and the show, I would have read this one regardless of what anyone said. But this one didn’t really bring anything new to the series, it was the same old Joe with similar story lines and ideas as the previous two books. If we are comparing books, I liked the previous two better.

    I definitely recommend picking this up though if you are a fan of the series! Even though this one wasn’t my fave, I’m still really excited for the show to come back and the next book!
