Spencer and Sable witty debut romantic comedy novel is must read this summer on the woes of dating and the bond of sisterhood.

Bex and Liv where inseparable as young woman and only spilt by love which took one of them across the world . Now as Bex seems to be dipping into the scene and self sabotage herself at dating
Liv is questioning her entire life in London and flies back to the USA in the hopes of discovering where she going totally wrong and instead finds herself in damage mood. She wants to help Bex but truly she only doing the opposite, not wanting to address the elephant in the room.

This was something different in a good way. Spencer and Sable grabbed my attention from the start with Bex and her misadventure. It was the perfect way to start the novel and shows only how good these two authors are together when they join forces and write. They seemed seasoned with the witty dialogue and easily flow between the two POV.

Best friends help each through the up’s and down’s of life and it seem this friendship was tested to it’s limits. With their secrets that only revealed in their POV , it was jumble up journey as each took the steps to figuring out what they want as they end their 30’s

40 is the new 30 and these ladies prove the point. I enjoyed these authors take on the whole dating scene. It takes two to party and the alternative chapters in their POV offers a chance to see it from two ladies at different stages of life and love. The moments that make this book could be horror stories but they just unfortunate reality for these two poor souls.

The right balance of these two was the perfecct way to tackle the journey that unfolded in the novel. Both woman need to take the time and discover want they wanted even though they went about the wrong way say yes to everything and taking a chance.

The Yes Factor is a charming rom com about saying yes and jumping into the unknown. Art intimates life in this novel and this novel is perfect for those love a book that just not your run of the mill rom com. I do hope these two write a follow up as they found their brand in this book and it’s genius and on point.

Erin Spencer and Emma Sable are two Southern girls who met in L.A. at a mutual friend’s engagement party. They bonded over their shared love of fried shrimp, queso, and The Golden Girls. After a girls’ night out in Hollywood to celebrate Emma’s birthday, the two were inspired to begin writing The Yes Factor, their first novel together. 

To celebrate finishing the novel, Erin and Emma travelled to the Amalfi coast where they enjoyed a week of sunshine, pasta, and Pinot Grigio. And where a few notes might have been scribbled for their next book, too!

Erin lives in L.A. and Emma now lives in London.
