Product Details


“A delightful romantic comedy with unexpected humor and a wacky cast of supporting characters.”
The Washington Post

“Alex Wellen’s engagement story is such a doozy, he lifted it frame by frame for his romantic, laugh-out-loud-funny first novel, Lovesick.”
San Francisco Chronicle

“Pulling back the curtain on what men really think about getting married.”
—Gwyneth Paltrow’s

“A screwball comedy about small-town love.”
The Daily Beast

“In his new book, Lovesick, CNN deputy political director Alex Wellen offers a new twist on the concept that only women want to get married.”
The Hill

“In the book Lovesick, Alex Wellen has created a character who steals our hearts from the first page. Andy just wants to marry the love of his life, Paige, but first he has to overcome the overt hostility of her father–who happens to be his boss–and the skulduggery of a group of geriatric goof balls.”
The Piedmont Virginian

“I love this book with a fondness that I have not felt since The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time or the last airing of ‘It’s a Wonderful Life.’   It’s warm and funny and true, and I did not want it to end.”
—Mary Roach, author of Stiff and Bonk

“Packed into this inventive, hilarious tale of small-town domestic realism is a parable for our times.”
—Po Bronson, #1 New York Times bestselling author

Lovesick is a fresh, funny look at the rocky road to real love and a happy marriage.  Andy Altman is an ordinary-guy hero with extraordinary heart and the story Alex Wellen creates around him is as touching as it is entertaining.  As for Andy’ s best pal, 83-year-old Sid — don’t get me started!!  He’s the kind of character that jumps off the page and sticks with you for a long, long time.  Read Lovesick.  You’ll feel better about everything!!”
—Larry King, host of CNN’s Larry King Live

“Alex Wellen has created memorable characters with emotional honesty, depth, and a great sense of humor. Andy and Paige will leave readers feeling simultaneously conflicted by their choices and warmed by the authenticity of a relationship that began when they were children. Lovesick is a must-read for anyone who believes that love conquers all, even when everything seems to stand in the way.”
—Rosalind Wiseman, author of Queen Bees and Wannabes, the basis for the film, Mean Girls

“A humorous look at the adventurous transition from engagement to marriage.”
– National Law Journal
