Such an enjoyable book – loved it!
Good God – this book slayed me. I feel like I might have had some sort of profound epiphany from reading this book. Obviously, I’m a romantic and believe in love – but this book just made me confident in the fact that there’s a lid for every pot, and that you can find your perfect guy if you just be yourself. 🥰
This is the first book I’ve read by Claudio Burgoa and yet somehow she managed to get into my head and write a love story about two impossibly imperfect people that I immediately fell in love with. Although I’m the polar opposite of Persy – she’s wild, confident, mouthy, extroverted – I connected with her. Her fears are my fears. I found myself saying “same, girl” throughout the book – which was nice, if embarrassing. She was quirky – but in such a way that made her endearing rather than irritating. I could keep waxing lyrical about her – but simply put, I loved her.
Ford is equally delicious. He’s a grumpy introvert – irritated by Persy and everything she stands for. He’s also a card carrying commitment-phobe. Relationships are a four letter word for him. And unlike other heroes who are supposedly anti-relationship, Ford is ride-or-die with that shit. Yet he can’t help be intrigued by Persy and slowly but surely, it progresses into something more.
I suppose this is a slow-burn kind of romance. It’s the progression of disliking to tolerating, to a tentative sort of friendship through to best friends. And then… Yet there’s not much of the sex – or even kissing; Just one sex scene tacked on at the end. And while I am always down for a sex scene – this book lost absolutely nothing by not having much. It’s about so much more.
I loved the texting – both because it’s cute as a button but also because it’s fun to read a story with a mix of normal storytelling, texting and the occasional podcast episode. We get both perspectives – his and hers – and it’s in first person, present tense. Add to that, it’s written in a very chatty, informal way. I felt it was almost like we were having a conversation with the characters and they were explaining to us, as a reader, what was happening in their lives. That makes it a really quick read. Those pages keep turning and I couldn’t put this book down. I actually got the rage when I had to put the book down to attend to life stuff. Once I’d finished the book, I felt genuinely bereft. What am I going to do with my life now? Well apart from take life advice from Persy and go find my very own Ford, that is.
I’ve a funny feeling that Ms Burgoa is going to be my next obsession. If her other books are even half as good as this one, then I’m all in. And if Nyx, Eros, Nate et al get their own books, too, then I might just keel over in happiness! This book left me feeling hopeful, happy and with that lovely feeling of butterflies in your stomach just like falling in love. 5 stars and very highly recommended.
