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.

5 out of 5 stars.

“I was just a flatline until he came along. And maybe now I’m hurting. But isn’t that what love is supposed to do? Make you feel, make you brave, make you look at yourself more carefully?”

F*ck Love is an incredible story about finding yourself, finding the person who is your other half, and to do once you’ve found them. This is my first Tarryn Fisher book (not counting Never Never) and I can’t believe I haven’t read anything by her until now. She’s an incredible writer, with incredible characters, and a love for Harry Potter rivalled by few.

The main character, Helena, is the only reason this book works. Despite her journey to find herself, she is self-aware, honest, and weird. She’s stuck in her own world trying to make the real world conform to hers. Her perspective is refreshing and bold. She approaches her situation with honesty, making any reader have the ability to connect with her and her feelings about what’s happening in the story.

I could go on and on about how amazing each character is, specially Greer, but I won’t because I don’t want to spoil anything. Honestly, do yourself a favour and just read this book. You won’t be disappointed.
