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.

We all waited and waited for this book for so long and then in typical Tarryn fashion, she dropped it on us like a bomb out of nowhere and then stood back to watch the shit show. I started the New Year off with such a book hangover like so many of my friends did. It was nearly a week before I recovered enough to read anything else. I guess when you get a book that you can actually see someone’s soul being bled out on the pages; you don’t just get to move on the next day.

 

 

This is exactly what F*ck Love is. Its Tarryn’s heart and soul bleeding out for the world to see. It is raw and honest and ugly and unapologetic. I know that this book is a bit polarizing due to the subject matter, but regardless of how you feel about a certain character or certain plot lines, there is no disputing the caliber of Fisher’s writing. She is on a level all her own. She makes you feel so many emotions and also makes you take a long look at yourself. She makes you feel like it’s ok to be broken and a little messed up in the head and that you are not alone, that everyone is a little messed up inside. This book tackles not only the pitfalls of a romantic relationship but also of friendship. What happens when one person is more invested, more loyal than the other? Sometimes when things are toxic, you just have to walk away to save your own sanity.

 

 

Helena is messed up in so many ways, but she is at the same time perfect in lots of ways. I loved her journey. It was a rollercoaster of a ride, and many times she ran and hid instead of facing her problems head on. But it was real and raw. Kit pissed me off and made me love him all at once. I could never figure out what his next move was going to be. Some of the things that he did, and the way that he treated Helena infuriated me, but I really wanted to be in his head. To know what he was really thinking and what was really his true motivations for his actions.  I was holding my breath for the last third of the book, praying that things would end up the way I wanted. However, I changed my mind about what I wanted to happen about a million times. This is definitely a story that will stay with you, that will haunt you, for a long time.

 

6 stars and a nice bottle of California Red! Enjoy!
