Tellulah Darling

Tellulah Darling writes YA & New Adult romantic comedy because her first kiss sucked and she's compensating.

Sassy girls. Swoony boys. What could go wrong?

Def not the other Running with Scissors

Running with Scissors - L.A. Witt

Pick this up thinking you're getting Augusten Burroughs' book about the kid going to live with his psychiatrist and you're in for a hell of a shock. Nope, this is sizzling hot m/m rockstars, baby! I like the rock star trope but for some reason I never seem to enjoy it unless it's an m/m. Hmmm, why ever could that be? Twice the sexy alpha male hotness, perchance?

 

Aside from that highly important characteristic, Witt hits every beat needed in a good romance. The incomplete hero whose flaw (in this case impulsive self-sabotaging decisions that blow up in his face) finds completion in the calm, steady peacekeeper who needs to learn to speak up for himself. Throw in enormous stakes of fame, fortune, creative fulfillment, and old friendships in desperate need of mending, all at odds with a secret attraction, and you've got a great read.
