The Romantics

If you want a nice, light, funny escape-in-a-book then The Romantics by Leah Koken is perfect. The story is told from the point of view of Love, yes the Love, who explains the behind-the-scenes- goings on of what (he? she? it?) puts into causing true love to happen (and all the oindex.jpgther kids of love, too).

Gael Brennan is about to have his heart broken when his first big relationship crumbles on the heels of his parents’ painful separation. Love intervenes with the intention of setting things right—but she doesn’t anticipate the intrusion of her dreaded nemesis: the Rebound. Love’s plans for Gael are sidetracked by Cara, Gael’s hot-sauce-wielding “dream girl.” The more Love meddles, the further Gael drifts from the one girl who can help him mend his heart. Soon Love starts breaking all her own rules—and in order to set Gael’s fate back on course, she has to make some tough decisions about what it means to truly care.

This book is very funny, clever, and filled with wit. After reading some heavy books recently it was a nice relief to read a funny story with a happy ending that was actually well-written and not just fluff. I’d definitely recommend this one!
