Book Review: The Night We Said Yes by Lauren Gibaldi

Say YES to this book right now!

Ella and Matt met one night, and fell in love. After few months of being together he left town without explanation and comes back 6 months later trying to recreate the night they first met. The night, when they and their two other friends, said yes to everything.The book is two night with a year of difference, alternating chapters between THEN (the night they met) and NOW (when Matt is back). I liked this because it helped me understand how they met and how she began to discover herself better after meeting Matt.

I loved this book, is a fast read with thought provoking characters that will make this story unforgettable. This was totally the type of book I like and enjoy reading. I related a lot with both of the female characters, Ella and Meg. It helped me to understand better my best friends when I was in a relationship very similar to Meg’s. The characters are not perfect, they have their twisted love relationships and I enjoy that because it makes the story feel real.

I am not a fan of “instant love” stories, and this might feels like that but there’s something about the way it is written or the way it is presented that it doesn’t feels like that. You can see how Matt’s presence starts to change Ella. And be ready to meet your next book boyfriend.

The Night We Said Yes is about learning to live in the moment and letting of the past, how second chances are possible and about following your heart. I will keep this story close to my heart because, like I said before, I can relate to the characters.

***Thanks to Harper Teen and Edelweiss for providing the DRC of this book in exchange for an honest review.**


  1. Insta-Love is something that bothers me too!
    But I am glad despite that the book has loads to offer even if the sound of insta-love is quite evident from the synopsis.
    I like your reviews. They are easy and quick reads 🙂

    1. Thank you for reading and loving my book review. I always try to make easy-read quick reviews because I’m not a fan a long deep reviews that I end up reading the first sentence and the last paragraph. I also book in a bookstore so I’ve mastered the skill of convincing readers to read a book in a very short time period.
