I found another old review! This one is coming at you from November 2019! (What?! I was pregnant!)
🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 out of 5 steam level
Loved someone tackling chronic illness as a heroine! Seriously loved this aspect! Chloe has fibromyalgia and chronic pain. And in her words: “fibromyalgia and chronic pain were invisible afflictions, so they were easy to dismiss.” I felt this quote in my bones! (If you’re new here, I am an endometriosis sufferer).
This book also features an interracial couple. Again, I’m team interracial couple because I’m in one and I’m a product of one! But do you remember ever reading books with interracial couples growing up? No! Because they weren’t around, but it’s another big perk of reading romance. I finally get to see myself in the pages of a book!
This book shows the positives of going to therapy. We need more books like this!
This is gonna be a series with the next book being about her sister Danni. And I will read that one as well!
So many lines I loved in it- here are a few…
Chloe used cuteness to disguise her inner evil. Sort of like Professor Umbridge.
I climbed that tree like . . . like Lara Croft!”
“With sweaty cleavage and frequent, strangely sexual grunts?” Dani mused.
“With effortless expertise,” Chloe corrected. Inaccurately.
“That track is the biggest waste of vocal talent ever created.” Dani arched an eyebrow. “Darling. You act as though you’ve never heard a Miley Cyrus song.”
“I had no idea that it was such a reprehensible trait. I expect to see you on the news soon, protesting the judiciary.”
As for Instagram, you really should get over your Too Cool for School reluctance and just sign up. This behavior is modern hipsterism.
Okay I could have done liks 7,000 more quotes but I think you get the jist. This book was hilariously quoteable.
The climax of the book was almost juvenile-y dramatic. Is love worth it? That was too much for me.
Content warnings for emotional and some physical abuse in a previous relationship- more description of the emotional than the physical. Lots of f bombs and crass language.
