The Cover: I love the cover of I Do(n’t). It’s not your typical romance cover and that’s exactly why I love it so much. A lot of romance feature guys so whenever a romance book features a female in any way I am immediately drawn to it.
Basics: I Do(n’t) was released on August 8th 2017, published by Leddy Harper and is 326 pages long. Genre wise I Do(n’t) belongs to the contemporary romance genre.
Description: I fell in love with Holden York when I was six years old.
Most of my youth came with spiral notebooks filled with doodles, wedding plans, and “Janelle York” looped in bubbly handwriting.
However, one night in Vegas changed everything.
I woke up to more than just a fantasy of my brother’s best friend.
Five years later, I’m standing on his doorstep confronting him about the secret he kept from me. If you think this is the story of how we rode off into the sunset together…
You’re so wrong. But if you think this is the story of how Holden blackmailed me into living with him…
You couldn’t be more right.
Overall thoughts: I had high expectations for Leddy Harper’s I Do(n’t) and I was mostly satisfied. I liked the story and I really thought everything was set up for I Do(n’t) to be a really great complementary romance read especially for the summer and wedding season. Starting a relationship in Vegas isn’t exactly the best way to do things but it makes for one heck of a funny and romantic story, especially when one part of the couple doesn’t remember anything that happened. Janelle and Holden have great chemistry and I wish more of their chemistry was shown; I’m usually very patient when it comes to slow burn romances but these two drove me nuts. I just wanted them to be together and that’s when you know you’re reading a good book, when you’re rooting for the couple to be together. I really liked I Do(n’t), a fun and romantic read for the end of the summer.

She often calls writing her therapy, using it as a way to deal with issues through the eyes of her characters. She is now a mother of three girls, leaving her husband as the only man in a house full of females.
The decision to publish her first book was made as a way of showing her children to go after whatever it is they want to. Love what you do and do it well. Most importantly Leddy wanted to teach them what it means to overcome their fears.
