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?

My anticipated fluffy read turns out to have so much depth

Sutphin Boulevard - Santino Hassell

I started off thinking Sutphin Boulevard was just going to be a hot and dirty m/m. Then I reframed my expectations to include a fun best friends to lovers read. Then I got into this one-sitting read and realized it was actually an intense journey of guilt, depression, family dysfunction and substance abuse. 

I'm totally exhausted after reading this book but what a wonderful ride. First off, I'm in love with Michael and Nunzio. I rooted so hard for them and for Michael to get his act together, both in terms of his emotional issues and his love life. Hassell has given us an MC so flawed and compelling that I couldn't put the book down before knowing Michael was going to be okay. 

This book surprised me in all the best ways and I look forward to the next one in the series.
