LOVE BOOK #02: F*ck Love

It's the time again to feature my February "Love Book" Reading Challenge. Here's a link to my previous post fully explaining the challenge. On this challenge, I'll read as many books as I can with the word "Love" in the title. Aside from that, I will also feature some "Love books" I've already read (or I've been meaning to read), like this next book.

Author: Tarryn Fisher
Number of Pages: 257
Date Published: December 31, 2015
Genre: New Adult Romance


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.


My thoughts:

You could not get much out of the synopsis provided, for it was short and vague. That's probably one of the reasons why I read it - out of curiosity and the need to know more how the story will unfold. Also, a I've been seeing the book a lot on Instagram, Twitter and Goodreads when it was released and there were many good reviews about it.

F*ck Love is about Helena, a girl who has fallen in love with her best friend's boyfriend.
How did that happen? Read the book, and you'll find out. She develops this attraction towards Kit, which eventually becomes deeper and scarier. Thinking she is doing the right thing, she packed her bags and left to find a life in Port Townsend and to get away from all the complications. But it's not as easy as that as more problem surfaces. Did they end up together? No, not telling you. All I know is that is was a very bumpy ride. A lot of ups and downs, and twists and turns.

But in all honesty, I did not really get why Helena had feelings for Kit in the first place. The "thing" that happened that made her question her feelings and doubt herself doesn't really make all that sense to me. I also did not find Kit very endearing, but it was still interesting to see their relationship grow. Della, the best friend is a queen b*tch. There is not an inch of her body that made me pity her. It also could have been nice to read a little bit more about Neil, being the ex-boyfriend (and their friend) and all.

Now let's go to Helena! Helena is weird. Helena, disregarding the part that she fell in love with her best friend's boyfriend, is just like every girl in her early twenties who does not know what to do with their life. (Oh, #SOML!) That's also one of the things that kept me reading. Although I want to know what will happen to Kit and Helena, I also want to find out what she'll do next, what will she make out of her life. 

Another great thing about this book is probably Port Townsend. After reading (or while reading) this F*ck Love, you just wanna book a ticket to Washington and hop on a boat to that place. It sounds so beautiful in the book. There are also a lot of deep quotes about life, love, and figuring out yourself - that's all it took to suck me in. That, and all the Harry Potter references.

In it's entirety, F*ck Love was a pleasant read. You swoon and cringe at times, but you somehow know how it will end (or maybe not). There were good and not so good parts, and it's pretty hard to put down.
