Natalie questions her friend Gabby's desire to marry Angus, especially since she believes that their friendship will be forever changed. However, Natalie finds it more disturbing when Rob is named as best man; the same Rob who she discovers has given her book a one star rating on Goodreads. At some point Natalie begins to understand Rob's rating, but will never admit it to him, and so begins years of anger, misunderstanding, and hatred.

One-Star Romance is not a rom-com or even a romance. The story centers around Natalie, an unlikable, self-centered character who goes through many difficult periods in her life, when in her thirties, she finally begins to develop a sense of empathy. Even though part of the book is told from Angus's perspective, his character is left underdeveloped. While well-written, this book does not match the type of story indicated by the title or the cover. There is no humor and the plot is heavy with unpleasant events and difficult life choices. Overall, One-Star Romance does not work as a romance and isn't even remotely funny.… (mere)

Natalie and Rob are best friends to the newly engaged couple Gabby and Angus. When they first meet, sparks fly, and their banter is hilarious. As the wedding approaches, Maid of Honor, Natalie, becomes a published novelist. She’s optimistic her book will be successful until she receives a one-star review for it on Goodreads. Already fearing her relationship with Gabby will inevitably change, Natalie starts to spiral.

This was the slowest of slow burn romances, but I kept turning pages, eager to see when these two awkward people finally commit to their attraction for each other. In the end, this is the story of the evolution and growth of each relationship in Nat's and Rob's lives. After nearly 10 years of bumping into and hate-lusting each other, the planets align. 4 stars from me for this One-Star Romance.

Thank you to NetGalley, Shelf Awareness and Berkley Publishing Group, Berkley for this complimentary ARC. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

Got this one in my subscription box.

Easy to read story about the dark underbelly of rich, beautiful Moms in Manhattan. It has a few twists and turns that I wasn’t expecting and overall I enjoyed it quite a bit.

Could totally imagine this as a movie.
