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.
“Let people feel the weight of who you really are, and let them fucking deal with it.”
Do you think a dream can change the course of your life?
It sure did for Helena.
The book opens with a dream where she sees what her life could be, should her life take that turn. Helena cannot shake off that dream and begins to see things in a different light. And that sets off a whole string of events that made me laugh, cry, go "aww..." and then some. I really do not know how to properly review this book. Its almost been a month and I'm still not sure.
So my book buddy hounded me to read this book, relentlessly. When I finally did get to reading it - I. Could. Not. Stop! I stayed up all night reading and finishing this book in one sitting. It has been a while since that happened. And after I finished reading I spent a better part of the next day discussing the book with my book babe! *Bliss*
I cannot tell you enough about how much I loved the writing style. It just pulls you in and before you know it you are almost done with the book and it's almost morning, and you kinda forgot to sleep. No regrets here!
I loved the wit and sarcasm liberally spread through the book. I loved some characters, hated some characters and just wanted to hit some of them at one point. You know, the usual for any book you love. Probably my favourite part was the fandom references, I've come to realize that if you throw in fandom references in a book, I'll love the book even more. Gotta stand by my fandoms.
I will say this, this is not the kind of book I would typically like, but the writing style makes all the difference to the story. I honestly enjoyed the book and it's now one of my favorites. I'll probably go and get some more books by Tarryn Fisher too!
