99% Mine- Sally Thorne

Darcy Barrett has traveled the world, and knows unequivocally the best man in the world is her brother’s best friend, Tom Valeska but because of this, he is off limits (along with the fact he is engaged to his very long term lady friend). Darcy returns to her home town to work on the house her grandmother left her and her brother, only to discover Tom will be the project manager of the renovation. Can she resist her attraction when in such close quarters on a daily basis?

After the absolute LOVE I felt for Sally’s debut novel, The Hating Game, I was curious to see if she could do it again. Surely it would be impossible to top that exquisite example of what a romantic comedy should be. And guess what? I liked 99% Mine even better!  The author has an entirely unique voice, one that in turn makes me laugh and cry back to back. Her words make me feel all the feelings. I am a fast reader and sometimes I’m not sure if I always pick up on every emotion because I’m tearing through, but even with the speedy flow of this book I still felt it all. The love, the passion, the humor … ugh. I didn’t want the book to end. I can’t recommend this (or The Hating Game!) highly enough. 5/5 stars, but would rate higher if I could.
