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.
I loved this book HARD! I swear it’s like literary crack. I defy you to read one chapter and stop because Tarryn Fisher has crafted a breathtaking story that is exhilarating and captivating from the very first page to the last.
I’m really not a fan of love triangles, but this one is definitely the exception. It’s a story about one lost girl, an insecure girl, and the lighthearted man they both love.
The story is told entirely from Helena’s point of view. She is adrift, and she just wants to be seen and loved.
“I don’t want to be someone’s ‘girl who got away.’ I want to be someone’s ‘girl who’d I’d never let get away.’”
Helena has always been the faithful best friend. Now, though, as her relationship with Della evolves and her feelings for Kit intensify, she’s torn between doing the right thing and following her heart.
It’s a complicated situation involving flawed characters of great depth, and I felt deeply for each of them. I really admired Helena. She’s fearless on her difficult journey to self-discovery. She’s also a bit of an odd duck with her collection of captioned selfies and monochromatic beige clothing.
The characters are in their early 20s so it’s technically a New Adult book. However, the maturity level and complexity of the characters make this read like an Adult Contemporary novel. If you’re looking for a drama-free book, this is definitely not the one for you, but oh my gosh – the feels!
The writing is simply gorgeous. I highlighted the heck out of this book. Each chapter is filled with insightful observations and moving quotes. I adored every single thing about it: the chapters titled with clever hashtags; the integral way in which Instagram is used; the steady build up of tension; the unpredictable plot. F*ck Love is one angsty rollercoaster of emotions that both enthralled and wrecked me. This one’s a no-brainer. Go and 1-click it immediately.
