Though parts of it may seem to drag early on, there's a bulid-up you won't expect that brings it all home. I like the way the chapters alternated between he and she, and the realness of the characters. I especially liked the creative freedom the authors had to write as if they were speaking directly to the reader in some parts. Despite the slow beginning, the book picks up dramatically, making it difficult to put down.
Love Don't Live Here Anymore was an interesting read that made you want to slap the piss out of Randy and Mikki, the main characters in this entertaining novel. Randy is a successful ad executive who opts to go to Paris to expand his professional horizons, leaving behind Mikki—his bitter wife who is as self-centered as they come. I thought that the ability to touch emotions and provoke heated discussions about the ins and outs of relationships, with your partner/spouse and friends were this novels strongest points.
There were loose ends that needed closure. Why didn't Mikhi or Randy ever really have a conversation with Marcus to understand his actions? What was Randy's relationship with Eliza after the bathroom deal? How realistic was it that all of the couple's family and friends felt that the marriage could or should be salvaged given the details of what happened.
