The Queen’s Book Talk # 22 : F*ck Love by Tarryn Fisher


Kindle Edition, 257 pages
Published December 31st 2015


Helena Conway has fallen in love.
Unwillingly. Unwittingly.
But not unprovoked.
Kit Isley is everything she’s not—unstructured, untethered,
and not even a little bit careful.
It could all be so beautiful … if he wasn’t dating her best friend.
Helena must defy her heart, do the right thing, and think of others.
Until she doesn’t.


I want to say sorry to Tarryn Fisher. I’m sorry Queen Mother for I have doubted you before I read this. They said that this book of yours isn’t you and they don’t like it and I almost believed them because truely nothing can top you Love Me With Lies series so I thought you just can’t write another good romantic novel again. Yes this book is still not as good as LMWL but is there any book better than it? This book is a book that is you but is also not you. I have moments when I think Tarryn couldn’t have wrote that then suddenly a moment later this is definitelt her. It was just so out of your character but at the same time still you. So for those who have read this and rated it lower than a 4 star or 3 then I don’t know why you even bother reading Tarryn’s books. Her books are so her and so complex that if you don’t have the same personality or even understand her then you have in no way of knowig what she means in her books. So after clearing all my doubts and guilt for thinking this will not be a good book, let’s move on to my book talk.

There’s not much I can say to this nonspoilery section of my book talk because I went into this blind, not even knowing what to expect. Let’s just put this whole booktalk in a few sentence for those who haven’t read this yet. Be brave. Just when you think it’s bad, it’s just that when you realize it actually is good.


Helena. What do I say about our beige bitch? She’s just like every other villainy character of Tarryn. You want to hate her but you can’t because she’s kind but not that kind, strong but still a little weak and much much more dependent than she seems. She’s confident about herself and is bit too trusting. I love how loyal she is to Della even if it is obvious how much she doesn’t value her. I think that the dream she had was a divine intervention or maybe just wishful thinking but dream shaped up her future. The whole book was focused on what she will do to make that dream happen. Sometimes I think what will happen if she haven’t dreamt that dream. Then I think she wouldn’t have to go through all the shit. But still I love our girl because she’s kind af and tries to do the right thing always even she ends up being the one that got hurt.

Kit. I think Kit was just waiting for Helena to stand up and fight for them. I believe she cares for Della and doesn’t want to leave her because she’s a safe choice. So when he did left her and went to Florida for Helena I was so happy! Then Della just had to fuck it all up and drop a bomb and hurt all of them. Goodbye were said and tears were shed. Then as Helena tried to move on Della just needed to be sick and bring them all back together to rub more salt on Helena’s wounded heart.

Come to think of it, these were the times that I became confused it Tarryn was the one whose writing the pages I was reading because Olivia wouldn’t do a single thing Helena was doing that moment and that was how I understood how holy Helena was.


In conclusion. I’m just glad that this book isn’t heartbreaking and frustrating as Love Me WIth Lies. Giving it 4 stars just because Tarryn, Helena, Kit and that Muslim Black twist in the end! Thank you for reading.
