- “It’s Not Okay” by Andi Dorfman
- Listened to the audiobook
- 3/5 stars
- Finished July 15, 2017
Andi Dorfman, the beloved finalist of season eighteen of The Bachelor who infamously rejected Juan Pablo and went on to star on season ten of The Bachelorette, dishes about what it’s like to live out a love story–and its collapse–in front of the cameras, offering hard-won advice for moving on after a break-up, public or not.
Andi Dorfman, star of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, talks candidly about what it’s like to be courted by twenty-five handsome, single men in this juicy, insider’s peek at dating–and breaking up–on national TV. She shares entertaining and heartfelt stories about her fellow Bachelor alums–many of whom are still close friends–comes clean about calling out Bachelor #18 Juan Pablo for bad behavior, and reflects on her personal challenges and uplifting experiences in love that she hopes will help you get through your own break-ups with grace and style!
From what I’ve seen of the Bachelor, I think my two favorite Bachelorettes are Andi and Kaitlyn, with Andi taking a small lead on Kaitlyn. For those of you who don’t know, I love The Bachelor franchise. I’m not even ashamed because we all deserve to have things that we enjoy just because we do, and The Bachelor is one of those things. Because I’m still working my way through Juan Pablo’s season, I haven’t read any of the other books from Bachelor nation, but I was so excited to read this once I finished Andi’s season.
I think anyone who doesn’t watch The Bachelor(ette) would probably not enjoy this book as much as I did. The book follows Andi through her breakup with her ex-fiance, Josh Murray (a total douchebag), while also going through (minimally) her experience on Juan Pablo’s season before going into her Bachelorette season. I really loved this inside look at Andi’s life, and I loved the audiobook because it was narrated by her. I will say that I was a firm believer that Andi and Nick would still be together had she picked him, based off of what I had seen on the show and that scene in his Bachelor season with her. And then I read this book. And she talked about what sex was like with him and I got it. I finally understood why she didn’t pick him.
I did only give this book three stars, only because while it wasn’t bad it wasn’t blow me away good either, and that’s not a terrible thing. I was slightly turned off by all the designer clothing mentioned but hey, like I said, we all have our things. I know she just put a new book out called “Single State of Mind” and I’m excited to read it. Apparently it’s pretty gossipy and fun, and I think it will be a good palatte cleanser read.
