Publisher's Summary

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.

Left me feeling confused?

3.5 stars (based on my understanding of the story)

This is not a negative review, even though it may seem like it, it is more about me and my understanding of this book than a reflection on the author, writing style or the story.

I guess maybe I was expecting something a little different. I enjoyed the story but I think maybe I'm just too "beige" sometimes for Tarryn's writing style. I think maybe I see things in black and white and that makes it hard for me to understand the artsy writing style that leaves a story completely up for interpretation. I never seem to get the story the way others do. I liked the characters but I really couldn't connect with them but I think that is just because they were eclectic and I am not, if that makes sense. I did enjoy the story for the most part but I just don't think I "get" her stories as much as I wish I did. I can see how someone who is a little dark and a little bit of a nonconformist would love this story. I however just don't have the mind set to get more from a story than the actual words say. Yes I know, I'm boring.

Anyways, If you like dark and twisty and you like a book that will make you think the entire time you will love this book!

The narration was different for sure. At first I wasn't a fan but as I got to know the main character more I realized the narrator was perfect for her voice!

Well that was mind f*ckery.

Not sure what who I was rooting for in that book. In the end, I am content with the outcome, but I was really confused what I wanted for Helena mid-book. Lots of twists and turns and some intriguing characters that give you a lot to ponder.
First time listen for Marisa Vitali and I liked her. She did a great job with all the characters. I didn't like when she said "Helena", but I'm not sure if it's because I hated the name for the character or the way she said it, but other than that- all was good.
I would recommend for a listen.

Too sad made me depressed

Story was drawn out and really sad. Story took too much time to develop and then it goes down hill

Memory Loss and Dreams

I really liked this author’s book, bad mommy, but this one dragged on forever and ever! The same scenario each time for the main character. It got old really quick. Disappointing!

The second time is better than the first with Marisa narrating

Have you ever wondered why you have certain dreams? A dream so real that when your day begins it’s as if deja vu settles in. Well for Helena it all started with a dream. This dream rippled her life changing everything.
Helena isn’t opposed to love. She didn’t want love to hurt. She didn’t want the guilt of loving what wasn’t hers, but it did.

The characters in F*ck Love stand out to me. They have human qualities that are appealing. They are relatable. I like being able to connect with these characters.
We are introduced to two characters who were going through the motions in life. When they met it ignited a series of events that motivated these two characters into an unexpected journey of hurt, truths, honesty, and love. What they have can’t be denied, yet the circumstances of life gets in the way of time.
Helena like most of us is searching for herself. She needed another person to recognize her passion and help her grow.

The definition of a writer is someone who uses written words in various styles and techniques to communicate their ideas. Let me tell you Tarryn is by no means an ordinary writer.

I’m no writer or author. My skill is that of a reader. As a reader I search for books that have unique qualities. That uniqueness comes from the plot, characters, and writing style. The key to finding a book that fulfills all three elements is the readers preferences. My preferences have evolved over the years. I no longer waste my time on a book that doesn’t grab my attention immediately.

Tarryn has mad talent. I’m eager to crack open any one of her books. In fact, very few authors get a second read by me. With Tarryn I’ve ventured into buying her audiobooks.

Marisa Virali narrates F*ck Love. She really brings these characters to life. It didn’t matter that Marisa was the voice for all these characters her voice was animated enough to make its point.

Amazing, insightful, and quoteworthy

Amazing writing! I have an entire page of insirational quotes that I had to stop everything to collect. Tarryn Fisher provides yet another facet to her writing abilities with this quirky story full of words that make you think.

One of the worst books I’ve listened to!!!

I’m not sure which was worse, the story and writing or the narrator. The entire plot made no sense at all. Save yourself the money and time...buy a different book.

A romance about fighting for what you want

Tarryn Fisher always writes from a deep vault of truth, emotion, wisdom, passion, and poetry - and that's evident in the words of F*** Love.

This book isn't about hating on love or being jaded, but more so about living for yourself instead of being who everyone else expects you, or needs you, to be. It's about not running away from the truth of life or the truth in your heart. Each page in this book has a kernel of knowledge, a gem of wisdom, tucked inside. And the way Tarryn Fisher preaches her own truth through Helena's and Kit's story is such poetry, so heartbreaking and yet heartwarming at the same time.

"You can’t run away to find yourself. Yourself is there no matter where you go. The difference is, if you’re running, you’ll be too busy to pick up the sword and face your enemies. Sometimes your enemy will be you; sometimes it will be those with the power to hurt you. Take off your shoes and stop running. Live barefoot and f***ing fight."

Tarryn Fisher doesn't write the conventional romance novel. She writes what's real and messy and complicated. She writes what to learn from heart break. This book made me laugh (a lot), and cry, and google Harry Potter terms, and be introspective. I was hooked from the beginning and forgot everything going on around me until I was at the end.

“Nothing worth finding is actually easy to find,” he says. “I know this from experience.”
