The last book that kept me “up all night” reading was Marian Keyes’ “Anybody Out There?”
I’d read other Marian Keyes books and I love her Irish humor. I love how she writes about really dark things (addiction, depression, alcoholism) and can still make you laugh out loud. When I started “Anybody Out There” it was light and funny and piqued my curiosity because you don’t know what’s happened to the heroine…so I kept reading and reading because I had to know and then…I found out.
I actually put the book down and decided I couldn’t read this one.
I was lying there, though, thinking about it and thinking about it, so I picked it up again. This was before I read on my tablet, so if I wanted to stay up all night reading, I had to leave the bedroom so as not to disturb the husband. Now I can (and do!) literally read under the covers on my tablet!
I actually shed some tears as I got back into the story and after that, I couldn’t put it down. I’m still wishing for a sequel to that book – there are other stories about the Walsh sisters, but I’d so love to read a follow up story for Anna.

Love hurts…even when you don’t believe in it…
Interior designer Micki Arnott is anticipating her boyfriend’s marriage proposal with excitement. She and prominent businessman Garrett Caulfield have been seeing each other for over a year and they’re in love. Okay, maybe Garrett hasn’t actually said those three little words, but Micki knows he feels them. But instead of a diamond ring, Garrett hands her a contract…
Garrett wants Micki to move in with him, to commit to him and only him, but he doesn’t believe in love and marriage. After watching his parents cheat and hurt each other all while proclaiming their love, that’s not what he wants his life to be. A contract seems like the perfect way to make sure he and Micki both understand the parameters of their relationship.
When Micki throws Garrett’s contract in his face and tells him to never call her again, he’s shocked and confused. He’s not a quitter, but he’s not going to fight with Micki like his parents did. Micki knows she’s doing the right thing—she deserves to be loved and isn’t going to waste her life on a man who doesn’t even believe in love. Garrett blames his misery on too much scotch…but what if that pain isn’t really the mother of all hangovers…what if it’s…love?
