Age/Sex/Location by Denise Kawaii

I have started on my 2015 reading list. A couple months ago I got this book as a prize during a giveaway event with Double Decker Books. I got an autographed copy! Yipee!

My review:

Age/Sex/Location Love is Just a Click Away took me by surprise. The story centers around Jo a new adult who doesn’t have the best parental relationship. She left home young and is independent. Her fiancĂ© breaks the engagement on her birthday. What a jerk! Well, she was better without that loser. She falls into a feel-sorry-for-herself slump, makes bad decisions, and turns to drugs and alcohol. In the midst of her downward spiral she starts talking to Nayman2000 over the course of several months they become friends and her dismal life seems to brighten. 

This was the first of Denise Kawaii’s books I’ve read. In fact, I won an autographed copy. It was the first paperback I’ve read in months and being autographed I carefully turned each page not to damage the precious book. At times that was difficult because I got so into the story. I couldn’t wait to get home from work and read more. The story is a romance, but not in the everything is rosy and bright sense. Jo has a lot of obstacles to overcome; the first I would say is self esteem. The book held a lot of truths that plague us. My heart went out to Jo while at the same time I kept thinking,’What are you doing?’. She isn’t a perfect character, but flawed and marred by humanity, giving her a realistic and loveable quality.
