I've never read anything from this author before and was completely BLOWN AWAY. I don't know if I've ever cried this much for a book. [Yes to Everything] was so wildly well done I even appreciated that emotion - it was beautiful, and it was right. Great elements of fantasy and reality intertwined. God, I'm not over it.

You can't get any better than this for a fun, snarky, comedic romance [Always Delightful]. Another successful look at the very talented Shayne McClendon and the way she weaves stories with characters you grow to love and look forward to seeing again and again. You won't be sorry you picked up this very engaging story. We all have a little sass in us and this book features a few sassy characters we can all relate to.
