Read full description of the books Slightly Married:In ‘Slightly Married’, Tracey is busy with her wedding plans. In the beginning, she’s basking in the joy of being a newly engaged woman to the man she loves but soon she realizes that planning a wedding involves a lot of time and consideration for details.
Tracey is the sort of character who deteriorates with every book, hence causing you to dislike her intensely. After being tortured by her endless expectations of a proposal from Jack in the previous book, this book proves that Tracey is never ever happy. She finally has a ring on her finger and of course, it’s time to find something else to complain about, such as how stressful planning her wedding is, how stressful her job is, how busy she is with everything, how she wishes Jack would express himself more, how she still has eyes for her friend Buckley despite being engaged, how her friends seem to be distancing themselves from her ever since she’d gotten the promotion she coveted etc.
In the first place, it’s Tracey’s fault. She could have taken her time to plan the wedding but no, she gets right into the heart of it and it’s all because she insists on the third Saturday of October and no, she can’t wait till the next year. Fine, but don’t whine about it then. Plus, Jack didn’t give her hell for it and it felt more like her wedding as opposed to their wedding. I thought that was incredibly selfish of Tracey, not to consider what Jack might want. Even when he gave his ideas such as having only 50 people at the wedding, she went ahead with 300. Seriously? They’re struggling financially yet she refuses to be practical.
This book could have been a chance for the author to redeem Tracey and turn this engagement into a heartwarming story filled with hilarious and touching moments. Instead, the whole wedding felt like a pain in the ass. It’s like Tracey is just rushing and god knows for what. As for her “unresolved business” with Buckley, it’s ridiculous at this point after the author established the fact that they’re friends and she’s sure that Jack is The One. This should have been addressed two books ago. There’s no point drawing it out and concluding it too nicely to be realistic.
There was too much on Tracey’s (extended) family as well. I didn’t care about any of them. It would have been nicer to focus on Tracey and Jack and how they work together to achieve the wedding of their dreams (with some compromises). Unfortunately, it just felt like a boring mess and I’m amazed that it took Tracey 4 books to finally get rid of Will in her life. She takes forever to learn anything and not in an adorable way either.
Overall, this could have been a decent book if it had been light-hearted and jolly.
