Day 82 – A Girl Like Her by Talia Hibbert
This lovely book is sweet, sexy, edgy and quirky. It also has a black female main character who is on the spectrum, a white male main character who’s her neighbor and determined to gain her trust, and a small town (English) setting that makes their experiences feel a bit like a fish bowl. Problematic, since she has some issues in her past that have made her feel isolated and lonely, even as she cherishes her solitude.
It’s brilliant and really has it all. Don’t miss this one.
A Girl Like Her
She’s the town pariah. He doesn’t give a damn.
In Ruth Kabbah’s world, comic books are king, silence is golden, and human contact is a pesky distraction. She doesn’t like people, which works out just fine, because the people in this small town don’t like her. The exception to that rule? Evan Miller, her way-too-charming next-door neighbour…
Ex-military man Evan is all tattooed muscle on the outside—and a big, cuddly teddy bear beneath. He’s used to coaxing prickly people from their shells, but he’s never met a woman quite like Ruth. Blunt, sarcastic, and secretly sad, she’s his exact opposite. She’s also his deepest desire.
Soon, Evan’s steady patience and smouldering smiles are melting Ruth’s reserve. But when small-town gossip from her past begins to poison her future, she’s forced to make a choice. Should she trust Evan completely? Or is her heart safest alone?
Please be aware: this book contains mentions of intimate partner violence that could trigger certain audiences.
