Review: The Day I Stopped Falling for Jerks - Should be every girl's bible book


I just 100% bloody loved this book.

It was an unexpected surprise.

I have to admit, at first, I wasn't sure about the writing style.
The whole story is set up as a pod cast, a recorded, first person direct approach to the audience, from the POV of Luciana "Lucky" Wright.

Was I hesitant? Yes. Did I love it? ABSO-F*CKING-LUTELY. Excuse the language, but if you can't handle the ol' F'Bomb, well, there's a fair few in this book.

I have never read a book like this, a bare your soul, sarcastic, witty and angsty woman's account of how she is so unlucky at navigating love. How she is ready to feel empowered, kick those jerks to the curb, ready to be no man's fool again.
Well, then enter's Ollie, presumed to be Jerk extraordinaire. He's got the eyes, the lips, the to die for body and most of all... the ego. He's a man who has everything and also happen's to be her best friends, famous, surf God of a brother. He is Lucky's Achilles heel. He's also the jerk that may win the battle for her heart and then do what all Jerk faces do... break it, incinerate and possible hand it back broken? Face it, from the very beginning you know their "relationship" could be a nose dive. Why would he be added to a heart break pod cast otherwise? The question that really kept me reading was How? How will this unfold? I guess I'm a secret masochist... the torture of falling in love and knowing it will somehow crash and burn, are my favourite reads.

God I loved it, their sass, their battle of wills, their unforgiving lusty chemistry that not even the salty waves can even extinguish. I could not put this book down. I even secretly read this at work, I know, reading my kindle under my desk on my smart phone isn't adulting, but who cares?!? I had to finish.

The next part of this duet is out on the 25th of this month. I don't think I can wait that long, I'm salivating at the thought of getting my teeth into the next one. I have to admit, I am nervous to read the next part from Ollie's POV, but I'm a nosey so and so. I'm SO ready to get down and dirty in his mind....

So, Max, Monroe, care to do a girl a favour and release this early? No? Dame, because I KNOW I cannot stand waiting another minute to read this.
