SYNOPSIS VIA GOODREADS
In Perfect on Paper, Leah on the Offbeat meets To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before: a bisexual girl who gives anonymous love advice to her classmates is hired by the hot guy to help him get his ex back
Her advice, spot on. Her love life, way off.
• Can give you the solution to any of your relationship woes―for a fee.
• Uses her power for good. Most of the time.
• Really cannot stand Alexander Brougham.
• Has maybe not the best judgement when it comes to her best friend, Brooke…who is in love with someone else.
• Does not appreciate being blackmailed.
However, when Brougham catches her in the act of collecting letters from locker 89―out of which she’s been running her questionably legal, anonymous relationship advice service―that’s exactly what happens. In exchange for keeping her secret, Darcy begrudgingly agrees to become his personal dating coach―at a generous hourly rate, at least. The goal? To help him win his ex-girlfriend back.
Darcy has a good reason to keep her identity secret. If word gets out that she’s behind the locker, some things she’s not proud of will come to light, and there’s a good chance Brooke will never speak to her again.
Okay, so all she has to do is help an entitled, bratty, (annoyingly hot) guy win over a girl who’s already fallen for him once? What could go wrong?
I LOVED THIS BOOK. I am sorry I delayed leaving a review because it deserved HYPE before the release.
This has everything from romance, letters, friendship, and QUEERNESS. Queerness that comes in all types. I loved what this book touched on. How your story is only yours and all we can do as a community is support each other. The conversation about being queer in a relationship with a man was everything. I identify as a lesbian now but I was in a relationship with a man for eight years. I just used the term Queer during this because I knew he was the only man I would ever. I felt like I did not belong anywhere during this. This relationship ended in 2020 and putting myself back out there with women was scary because of biphobia. I wish I had had a club like this at a young age.
PROTECT Brougham at all costs. I loved his snarky rudeness and how great of a friend he turned out to be.
My only issues was Brooke. What Dracy did to her was not cool, however I never felt like Brooke was a Steller friend. She brushed her feelings aside a lot and I felt like she should have known Darcy was in love with her. They were both in the wrong. I just wish they had talked it through in the end. I am happy they mended fences.
The romance was lovely and THAT IS ALL I WILL SAY! Go buy this book and all her other ones. You will not be disappointed. EASY FIVE STARS.
