Book Review

TL;DR: This dark contemporary romance is Fisher's best book so far. 

Rating: 4/5

Full Review: The summary makes it sound like a rom-com like Something Borrowed. But it is much more complicated than that. I could have sworn this was a book by Colleen Hoover, not Tarryn. Fisher’s books are getting lighter and Hoover’s books are getting darker. I love it! It still has a little bit of the standard dark twists that she is known for, but overall it was much more optimistic than her previous stories (such as Marrow and Mud Vein).

I also thought this book made the most sense out of any of her books I have read so far. She tends to go off on random tangents and the endings never quite tie up all the loose ends. But there were still a few unanswered magical realism plot points in F*ck Love that could have been a little more fleshed out.

If it didn’t have the Muslim Black subplot (which was a callback to Marrow), I would have given this five stars. This is definitely my favorite of all of Fisher’s books I’ve read so far. Honestly, I almost gave up on her, but I am glad I didn’t. Now I am excited to try her newer books, such as The Wives. It could be a great choice for February in our 2020 Judging More Challenge: a non-traditional romance. If you are interested in buying the book, you can buy it here. After you have read it, leave a comment and let me know what you think!
