F*ck Love by Tarryn Fisher

Title: F*ck Love 
Author: Tarryn Fisher
Release Date: December 31, 2015


Helena Conway has fallen in love.
Unwillingly. Unwittingly.
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.

"Love is faithful, love is kind, love is patient."

F*ck Love is a freaking good story!

I haven't read the last 3 books Taryn has published but Airport Blue is still one of my favorite colors! If you haven't met Caleb, you are missing out. 

What I liked about the story:
At first, I had no idea what to expect with Kit Isley and the crayon scene. Then, everything made sense. 

What if you knew you were making a mistake in choosing the wrong man, when the right man is in your life too but the thought of being with him has never crossed your mind? This is exactly what Helena has to deal with. Worse, the guy of her dreams is her best friend's new boyfriend.

You can imagine how much of a mess their lives will become. Helena is insecure of who she wants. After all, she does have Neil in her life, her boyfriend. Also, hurting her best friend Della is not something she's willing to do. 

I felt all kinds of emotions through this rollercoaster. I had major sympathy for Helena's dilemma. She was trying to do the right thing by everyone except herself.

“Life is but a carousel of four seasons. Unpredictable for the most part. Happy. Unhappy. Content. Searching. Mess up the order, and they still rebound at one point or another.”

I disliked Della with a passion. She was selfish, clingy and using a baby as a tool it's so middle ages. In a way, she took pleasure in hurting Helena and never once said thanks for everything Helena did for her. 

Let me talk about Kit....half of the time I wanted to hurt him bad. He was weak, indecisive and I never thought he fought enough for Helena. To the point than when blue-eyed Muslim showed up, I was ready to give Kit the boot. Now, other times....I was rooting for him. Rooting for him to get the girl. To wake up and turn his nightmare into the perfect dream and for the love of all that is good, freaking buy condoms!!!

“You shouldn’t have to convince anyone to choose you. There is no real choice in love.”

Taryn is very good at giving me the idea that her stories are based in truth. A Miami girl moving to Washington, running away from heartbreak. Sounds familiar? I sure think so. How many women have run away from the things that remind them of an ex-boyfriend, ex-lover, or ex-husband?

“You can remember the bad things about a place, or you can remember the good. Sometimes they’re tied together. That makes it even more interesting.”

Cliffhanger: No

4/5 Fangs
