I know, I know, contemporary romance isn’t really my thing, but I like to step out of my comfort zone every once in a while and there was just something about this title that made me want to read it. It sounds like the perfect and fun summer or beach read… And I still believe it fits that title perfectly. You see, I think the problem here was mostly me, and not Sorry Not Sorry. There were things I liked about the story, and the humor is definitely more than present. I was able to click with the funny moments, and I like the sharp, quirky and entertaining writing style in general. It sure is a superfast read as well! But I wasn’t prepared for the many so-called ‘sexy’ scenes, which are quite a turn off for me. I also don’t like seeing tropes as cheating and a love triangle in a story… (There are others as well, but I can’t mention those due to possible spoilers.) This overdose of romance cliches in general was just way too much for me. I also didn’t really like at all the bitchiness of some of the characters or the way some of them behaved in general… Also, Charlotte herself could get quite annoying at points. I do believe that contemporary romance fans who love a good dose of humor in their stories will have a blast with Sorry Not Sorry though.

Charlotte has always made the sensible decisions, being the essentially good girl. But she is tired of her in her eyes boring life, looking for a way to spice up her life and find a new man in her life. A popular podcast, Sorry Not Sorry, seems to be the solution. A popcast challenging its listeners to embrace their inner bad girl by proposing a series of challenges. The New Charlotte is ready to wave goodbye to her comfort zone and embrace her inner bad girl; but will these challenges actually help her change around her life?

As the cover already suggests, Sorry Not Sorry is a fun, quirky and entertaining read and perfect for those hot summer days while sipping on a cocktail (or juice if you don’t drink alcohol). The writing style is engaging and the humor was actually one of the things I really liked in Sorry Not Sorry. Then again, I like my humor a bit sarcastic and spicy. There were other things I didn’t like in Sorry Not Sorry, but I have the feeling that is mostly my own fault and not the story itself. Fans of the genre will have a great time with this one!
