Well it's taken me some time to write this, (I read it when it was released) and as Lindsey said I needed to reread or at least a recap, which led to pretty much a reread. Tarryn Fisher amazes me with her words, Every. Single. Time. She just has this knack, this way that she writes and it flows and is beautiful, sometimes gritty and always real. I mean how many of us have had crushes on our friend's boyfriend growing up? I mean maybe not to the extent Helena did but most of us have been there, (the guy I married dated my friend first). I love how flawed her characters are. I love the mistakes they make, their insecurities and everything that makes a person REAL.
Helena was a selfless person she helps everyone and gets walked all over because of it. Her best friend Della has been doing it for years. She takes advantage of her so many times and Helena lets her. Well what happens when Helena falls for Della's boyfriend and lets a dream crash with her reality?
Kit, Della's boyfriend and Helena's secret crush is crush worthy but not in your typical "book boyfriend" way. I'll let you read it to understand what I mean, but he wasn't perfect.
I've read that people have compared this book to The Opportunist. I guess I can see that a little but this isn't the same book, not by a long shot, Helena is no Olivia and Kit is no Caleb.
The way this book starts off immediately draws you in. It was a book I devoured and read within twenty four hours.
Another five stars for Tarryn!
