F*ck Love by Tarryn Fisher
Published December 31, 2015
Goodreads Summary: 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.
Review: I had been in a bit of a slump since the new year started and was looking for a great read that would help boost me out of it. I had never read a book by Tarryn Fisher before but since I love her BFF’s books (Colleen Hoover), I figured maybe it was finally time to read one of her books. I asked Brandie @ Brandie Is A Book Junkie for some advice on picking my first one and she gave me a few suggestions including F*ck Love. Obviously since I am writing this review, I chose F*ck Love 🙂 …..
I was hooked IMMEDIATELY. And I did not want to put the book down. I finished it the same day I started it. I loved the main character, Helena. She felt so real and I saw so much of myself in her. I adored her constant Harry Potter references. And anytime Kit’s name was mentioned, I went a little weak at the knees. I felt so connected to this book because I used to have these crazy vivid dreams all the time, just like Helena’s. My heart completely broke for Helena every time something snagged Kit away from her. Totally adding them to my OTP list. Della…. oh god. I wanted to like her because Helena did but she just seemed like such a horrible friend. Super needy and narcissistic. Surprisingly, I really ended up liking Greer though. I liked that she was selfless enough to pave the way for Helena even though she and Kit had such a big history. I loved the imagery of the Pacific Northwest, too. I had been to Seattle years ago and it definitely made me want to go back there and explore more of the region as soon as possible.
Overall, this book was everything that I wanted and more. I laughed, I cried a little, I got angry… Literally the best book to have gotten me out of my reading slump. I will definitely be purchasing a paperback copy to add to my permanent collection sometime soon.
