Book Review: F*ck Love

Title F*ck Love
Author Tarryn Fisher
Release Date December 31, 2015

Helena Conway has fallen in love.
Unwillingly. Unwittingly.
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 really, really like the books by Tarryn Fisher I've read so much. So much so that I've already bought all of her other books in anticipation of getting the chance to read them. I know if I'm in a book slump, I can read something of hers. Her writing is phenomenal. There's something different about her books than anything else I've read that I just absolutely adore.

F*ck Love feels different to me than her other books that I've read. It still feels like a Tarryn book, but there's something that I can't put my finger on that sets it off all on its own. This is certainly not a bad thing, but it is something that really stuck out to me.

I really loved Helena. There's little ways in which I found myself relating to her that made her feel more realistic. I enjoy being able to see myself in a story without the character feeling like they have no personality.

F*ck Love only gets four stars from me because I would have liked a little (just the tiniest bit) less introspection on Helena's part and more interaction with her best friend. Like, it was hard for me to really understand why there were best friends sometimes. It feels a bit nitpicky, though, honestly.

Anyway, great book. A romance that doesn't really feel like a romance. Love Tarryn Fisher.

4 out of 5 stars
