F*ck Love by Tarryn Fisher ~ 5 Stars
WHOA! WHOA! WHOA! Don’t I start out 2016 right? I am putting this on the FAV of 2016 list. A MUST READ!
It was a surprised early release and I was on it like a leach… I could not put it down – DEVOURED this book in one sitting.
“Helena Conway has fallen in love.
But not unprovoked.
Kit Isley is everything she’s not—unstructured, untethered,
and not even a little bit careful.
It could all be so beautiful … if he wasn’t dating her best friend.
Helena must defy her heart, do the right thing, and think of others.
Until she doesn’t.”
“I HAD A DREAM. DON’T MARRY DELLA”
Helena is dating Neil. Her best friend Della is dating Kit. They are all one big happy family until Helena had a beautiful dream – her future perfect life spread out with a handsome husband (not Neil) but Kit and two adorable children (she does not even like kids). Then she woke up … Now, my friend that is your first chapter!!!!! Think you can put down? NOT!!!
Helena is smart, witty, awkward in an adorable way. She is loyal and always want to do the right thing. Kit is this HOT, a writer by day bartender by night, but oh so indecisive. He is unhappy but torn between the woman he loves and the safe choice. Helena and Kit have undeniable chemistry. Many times in the book I just wanted to scream at Kit to wake him up, to CHOOSE. Della is beautiful, spoiled and selfish – not much of a likeable character (especially the threat she gave Kit) Ugh! Neil… oh well he is just a douche.
“Are you in love?”
Helena and Kit is much more alike, they understand each other in a deeper level and they compliment each other well but they are involved with other people. Their love story is pure, tender and romantic. Sexual tension is off the chart. You don’t need a descriptive sexual act to get steamy – in this book you will get it merely by conversations and texts Less is more in this case Every time you think they might get together something catastrophe strikes … Timing is everything and their timing totally SUCKS.
“Helena, I love you. I’m in love with you. Say something…”
“Men tell lies”
I can’t get enough of Tarryn Fisher’s writing – just brilliant. The dialogues are witty, funny, and entertaining. Let’s not forget the angst… I felt like I held my breath the whole damn way until the end. I especially LOVE the narrative – it’s fantastic, it’s like reading poetry. The way she described everything is vivid, dreamy, honest and raw. Just so UNIQUE and CAPTIVATING. I imagine the population of Port Townsend will increase 3 folds this year I mean you feel like you are there visiting right along with Helena – it’s so dreamy, peaceful, artsy and the people are nice.
“You can love someone your whole life and not know why. You can even live with it…”
Tarryn Fisher did it again – this is not just a love story. It’s also about friendship, life choices and consequences. I was laughing, crying, cussing out loud to the night – some parts are super frustrating. You will be very satisfied with the mini HEA ending but not EVERYTHING is perfect! Because that’s just not Tarryn Fisher!!!
F*ck Love is unique, captivating, beautiful, heart wrenching and brilliant. Colleen Hoover commented in her FB post that this book reveals a sweeter side of Tarryn Fisher – Despite the tittle, I feel it too. I am intrigued and I am so looking forward to more of her stories.
“You shouldn’t have to convince anyone to choose you. There is no real choice in love.”
F*ck Love – this shit is REAL!
