My Thoughts

An edgy emotional exquisite romance! This book was 100% eXCEPTIONAL!

Sally Thorne is such a wonderful storyteller! She has woven together an emotional story guaranteed to tug at your heartstrings! I absolutely loved “The Hating Game,“ and when I picked this up I was expecting the same fun funny banter I got in that book…. I did get the same outstanding banter, however this book is a little darker, a little edgier, and a lot more angsty… this book definitely put my heart through the ringer! I wouldn’t say this book is better or worse than THG it is just… different….. however what I loved about THG is absolutely in this book as well… wonderful storytelling, amazing well drawn characters, and fabulous dialogue!

Darcy returns home after her beloved grandmother passes away, leaving her house to her… The house is in need of some major renovation, so Darcy is going to stay in town until the paint dries and she is able to sell the house…. The girl has some major wanderlust and is just itching to get on that next plane headed to adventurous anywhere…. BUT one day she arrives home to find Tom on her front porch, and he is the contractor who has been hired to renovate the house… Tom is the only man who has ever really got a hold of Darcy’s heart, the problem… he is engaged and he is also her twin brothers BFF… to complicate things further Jamie, Darcy’s twin and her are not quite seeing eye to eye on this house renovation….

I do love the friends to lovers trope… and in this book it was done so cleverly end it was oh so complicated! The push and pull between Tom and Darcy was so compelling…. Darcy was a wonderful character, even though I didn’t warm up to her immediately… she was a little prickly and definitely has her guard up, but she was also snarky, smart, strong, and loyal… Tom, I have to admit in my younger days I would’ve found him a little boring or bland, but now that I’m older and no better he was a really nice guy that had a heart of gold, that any woman would be lucky to call their own… he really had very few rough edges, what you see is what you get with him, and what I saw in my mind I definitely liked! The chemistry between these two was off the charts, and when things heated up they hit the boiling point… my only little tiny complaint would be I would’ve liked a little more of these two in the past, maybe some more interaction between them when they were younger, so I could really see where all this angst and lust and longing and love was coming from….

An extremely well told romance, full of engaging characters, witty banter, and sizzling chemistry! Absolutely recommend!

🎧🎧🎧 this book was narrated by Jayme Mattler, she did an amazing job! What I love so much about audio is how much it really brings the characters to life, and Jayme really nailed it in this book! She was Darcy just as much as she was Tom….

🎵🎵🎵 song running through my head! Oh I love this song and it really expressed some of my frustration with these characters during this book!

“Say something, I’m giving up on you

I’ll be the one, if you want me to

Anywhere, I would’ve followed you

Say something, I’m giving up on you

And I am feeling so small

It was over my head

I know nothing at all

And I will stumble and fall

I’m still learning to love

Just starting to crawl

Say something, I’m giving up on you

I’m sorry that I couldn’t get to you

Anywhere, I would’ve followed you

Say something, I’m giving up on you

And I will swallow my pride

You’re the one that I love

And I’m…”

About the Book

Crush: a strong and often short-lived infatuation, particularly for someone beyond your reach…

Darcy Barrett has undertaken a global survey of men. She’s travelled the world, and can categorically say that no one measures up to Tom Valeska, whose only flaw is that Darcy’s twin brother Jamie saw him first and claimed him forever as his best friend. Despite Darcy’s best efforts, Tom’s off limits and loyal to her brother, 99%. That’s the problem with finding her dream man at age eight and peaking in her photography career at age twenty—ever since, she’s had to learn to settle for good enough.

When Darcy and Jamie inherit a tumble-down cottage from their grandmother, they’re left with strict instructions to bring it back to its former glory and sell the property. Darcy plans to be in an aisle seat halfway across the ocean as soon as the renovations start, but before she can cut and run, she finds a familiar face on her porch: house-flipper extraordinaire Tom’s arrived, he’s bearing power tools, and he’s single for the first time in almost a decade.

Suddenly Darcy’s considering sticking around to make sure her twin doesn’t ruin the cottage’s inherent magic with his penchant for grey and chrome. She’s definitely not staying because of her new business partner’s tight t-shirts, or that perfect face that’s inspiring her to pick up her camera again. Soon sparks are flying—and it’s not the faulty wiring. It turns out one percent of Tom’s heart might not be enough for Darcy anymore. This time around, she’s switching things up. She’s going to make Tom Valeska 99 percent hers. 

Have a wonderful day! Berit☀️✨

  1. I loved thg too and the moment i read this title i thought you were going to say how hilarious this one was…. a little disappointed that’s not the case. Still, your review makes the story sounds great.
