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?
I'm a London fan so I was excited to get hold of this one. And yet, I'm still trying to figure out exactly how I felt about it. What worked? Well, I liked Grace a lot. I liked that she was determined to make the best of her situation and not lie down and be miserable. She was a lot of fun.
My hesitation lies with Jeffrey. I think that London made an interesting choice to explore a man whose trauma with a father consumed with perfection led to an OCD reframing of the world around him to stay in control. That part was fine for me. Where I bumped on the character was his obsession with sexual deviancy. Not that it was really deviant - maybe given the time period, just that there was a point by which I was really getting turned off by him constantly imagining women going down on him or getting it off with each other. Perhaps that portion was just too heavy handed for me.
Thank you to Harlequin and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for a fair and honest review.
