Somebody to Love; Aurelia Fray

Title: Somebody to Love
Author: Aurelia Fray
Genre: Contemporary; Romance
Publication Date: March 30th, 2018

An unlikely pair, an impossible mission, and a hilarious hunt for Somebody to Love.

Henry only needed to fix the leaky office pipes. So, when a crazy woman barges in and turns his day upside down, then confesses all her secrets like a challenge, he faces two choices: Tell her he’s not the man she’s looking for, or roll with it.

Rachel knows there’s something amiss about her new shrink—he’s far too handsome for starters—but she’s desperate to straighten her life out. With only three weeks to find a date for her cousin's wedding, she’s willing to try anything. Even rely on a complete stranger to help her find love.


 Hello Fellow Readers,

So I went to my kindle fully intent on reading a cozy mystery in between all of my requests I have been doing lately. I don't know what happened, maybe it's the cute cover, maybe it's the interesting synopsis or maybe my mind fully knew that I actually did not want to read a mystery but I ended up reading Somebody to Love by Aurelia Fray.

I liked the book, it was actually funny which surprised me because sometimes a book alludes to the fact that it's hilarious and I barely crack a smile. First off, I really like Rachel she's spunky but also vulnerable in a way that seems realistic, when authors write strong women they tend to forget that everyone have vulnerabilities which doesn't make a women less. Henry was also really great, although not at first but he grows which is what you want to read about in a book, no one has to start great as long as he ends that way.

The romance between the two was pretty cute and delightful, and not at all instalove which I enjoyed. Henry and Rachel had good chemistry and playful banter, they didn't argue excessively either, they acted like adults. The humor in this is pretty raunchy, FYI so if your looking for clean romance you won't find it here.

One thing I did not like was the girl-on-girl hate. Rey, was just an useless character I felt there was no reason to include her, especially when you have Cassy already. I was a little upset with the lack of support Rachel had in the first half of the novel, I just kept thinking 'are all the friends in this shitty?' I was happy I was proved wrong but they should have been introduced sooner. Overall, a great read for those who like saucy humor in their romance.
