Recently, I’ve found myself picking up romantic comedy books more and more. When I saw that Sally Thorne (author of The Hating Game) had released a new book, I ordered a copy ASAP. Her last book was a fun, beach-y read – exactly what I was in the mood for when I ordered my copy of 99 Percent Mine. While this book was a rom-com book of the light-and-quick-read variety, it was definitely a departure from her previous novel.
Darcy is tired of living in the shadow of her twin brother. He’s everything that she is not: charismatic, accomplished, and healthy. Darcy, on the other hand, is a flight risk with a laundry list of health issues who is being forced to stay in one place for the first time in her adult life – as a part of her grandmother’s will, she has to renovate her house. Luckily, Tom (a childhood friend, crush, and her brother’s best friend) is on hand to help with the renovation and make sure Darcy sees it through. Unresolved feelings are brought to light and Darcy is forced to take a long, hard look at her life and her relationships with those around her.
