I m sure it would be efficient to ust upload an audio file of me suealing and occasionally crying happily for about six minutes but sure I can try to translate that into a proper reviewThe thing that makes this book so extraordinary is that the premise itself sounds like nothing special nothing we haven t seen before in a bunch of other stories Struggling New York artist falls in love with famous Hollywood actress mutual pining artist who had been lacking inspiration finds it in the form of love the actress s fame gets in the way somehow But what the author does with it is ust magicThis hasn t even been published yet but I honestly believe it s destined to become one of those books that everyone who s interested in the genre has
At Least Heard About It Feels Kind least heard about It feels kind great to have read it as a draft in uotes because when I think of a draft what comes to mind is an absolute mess and I refuse to associate this with that image it s ust a wonderful version of future book that I cannot wait to read as wellNow I knew this was a slow burn sort of thing but man when I say slow burn I mean slow for real And in any other case this would ve likely annoyed me being as impatient as I am when it comes to romance stories but this book was far from that The thing about well written slow burn like this is that the longer you wait for something to happen the better it feels when it finally happens and this book sure as hell delivers each and every time The writing is so good that moments such as one of the characters simply seeing the other for the first time feel breathtaking to me in a way other stories haven t managed to do even with major stuff like marriage proposalsIt was great to see so much of each of the characters individually while they were still I Was A Stranger just a tiny growing part of each other s lives Since they spent so long only e mailing each other most of the time at first was dedicated to showing the readers what these characters were like on their own before we could really begin to see them as romantic interests Meanwhile we also saw them getting gradually anxious to receive the other s e mails think of the other often want contactI loved how the characters balanced each other out in terms of dealing with their sexualities in a way that none of them ended up in that typical don t worry I ll be gentle position if that even makes sense to anyone but me While Julianne was sure of her sexuality from the beginning in a way that Kris definitely wasn t Kris had a little experience with her love life in generalOn that note the characters themselves were beyond amazing While Kris s life and the issues she faced made her a naturally relatable character that s not so simple to achieve with a famous Hollywood actress Julianne could ve easily been a shallow character she would get relatable points for being gay and having family issues but not enough to entirely make up for her totally successful career and financial stability to say the least But Ingrid D az did it and so Julianne was no less than an incredible character she felt genuine Her issues felt real I don t think it could ve been as great if we hadn t gotten to know her so well as an individual before Kris started to become such a big part of her lifeGod I can t even remember all the stuff I need to praise Whatever everything was perfect Maybe I ll remember things I want to say when I lay in bed and think about how much I loved this book for uite a while before I finally sleepHowever and it pains me to say this there is one thing I can t help but complain about and it s the conversation between Kris and Leigh early in the book where theyoke that Julia might be a trnny I was already cringing when they got into that topic but the use of an actual transphobic slur was disappointing as hell I really hope this part doesn t make it to the final versionOh I would kill for a seuel The ending was definitely satisfying to me but I would love to see their relationship after the honeymoon phase especially when it inevitably went public one way or another lots of angst and learning how to deal with it Or maybe I ust desperately want to see of these characters And to think the book hasn t even been published yetI m still deciding whether I want to read the first version as well or not I heard about some of the major differences and part of me is not willing to pass up on any kind of opportunity to read of this story but I don t want to end up with two versions messed up in my head while I m already waiting for another in the future the final oneI guess it really says something about the uality of a book when it s a draft with what s far from the most original premise ever and yet the overwhelming majority of reviews are outstanding I m ust glad that I can finally go put this book on the top of my favorites shelf even though I had a strong feeling I d do that anywa.

story as unlikely as it sounds in recap is nevertheless made believable via skillful writingas unlikely as it in a recap is nevertheless made believable via skillful writing dialogue is sparkling both witty and enchanting I really have to stretch to find anything to criticize here The worst thing I can really say is that this is less of a slow burn novel than it is a glacial advance In the time it took to move from the first page to the main characters first conversation on the phone two ice ages had come and gone new stars had been born and blinked out of existence conservatives and liberals had learned to love one another Even so I never had the feeling that I was treading water Every page was spent defining the characters none of it felt wasted Ultimately the long build led to a much gratifying and fulfilling culmination simply due to my fondness for the characters and my knowledge of what they d been through I The Lives of Stay-at-Home Fathers: Masculinity, Carework and Fatherhood in the United States just can t say enough about how much I loved these characters Honestly they re absolutely wonderful I finished the novel wishing I could leap immediately into a seuel wanting desperately to watch them build their lives together Even having read this draft of the book I will gleefully purchase the final version when it becomes available Writing of this uality deserves to be supported and my Kindle library would feel empty without itIngrid D az take my money pleaseMy final rating of this draft is one misuoted Carl Sagan billions and billions of starsUpdateI veust finished the book for a second time Somehow it s even better than I d remembered it The dialogue is so funny the secondary characters are so charming so well defined that I ust find it
