    this story is adorable. when i think of roni loren, i think hot, passionate romance stories with a really heavy tone. so it was quite a change to read something that is so light and romcom-esque. its really quite cute and i think roni pulls off the look quite well. also, bravo for the representation. i think this is the first story i have read where the MC has tourettes and i love how its not used as a crutch for the characterisation of hollyn, but more of an meaningful portrayal of a life that s this story is adorable. when i think of roni loren, i think hot, passionate romance stories with a really heavy tone. so it was quite a change to read something that is so light and romcom-esque. its really quite cute and i think roni pulls off the look quite well. also, bravo for the representation. i think this is the first story i have read where the MC has tourettes and i love how its not used as a crutch for the characterisation of hollyn, but more of an meaningful portrayal of a life that some readers may not think about. i also really loved the interactions between hollyn and jasper (but i do fall for the fake dating trope, so theres not surprise there). their banter and chemistry feels so natural and i truly believed in their relationship and connection. overall, this is a great romance story with some laughs, a lot of swooning, and a really lovely message. a massive thanks to sourcebooks casablanca for the ARC!! ↠ 4.5 stars

When the end of the freaking disastrous year approaches, the best thing to spend your precious time is getting a feel good, sweet romance books like this, choosing “ Baby is cold outside” as background music, lying on the couch, sipping your martinis or your hot chocolate full to the brim with marshmallows, enjoying your quality time with a widest smile on your face! That’s what I did! I highly recommend it to you! I have to congratulate the author for two things before talking about the plot. First: I’m so happy she chose to write about Tourette syndrome and gave us some many important information, how it affected her main character’s life, how it triggered her anxiety disorder. The disease affected character’s life dramatically but it didn’t define who she was. The author differentiated her character’s development and the disease’s effects adroitly. The second thing is the author perfectly handled to light down her tone and switch into chic lit from steamy erotic romances. Her great sense of humor helped a lot to create this entertaining book. Let’s take a look at the synopsis: Miz Poppy is popular reviewer giving so many entertaining details about New Orleans night life! But that’s just the online personality. In real life Miz is Hollyn suffers from Tourette syndrome and anxiety attacks, building a secluded life with less human contact. Throughout her life she suffered from humiliation, bullying because of her medical condition. So her logic simple: less human communication means less problem in her life! And now her job is at stake because her boss wants her to do video reviews. At this moment her path crosses with the office coffee guy Jasper who is unemployed actor. With his help she can handle those videos and Jasper can get the attention he needs for his acting career, getting rid of living with his sister. The plan will save both of them but they didn’t expect to like each other so much. Love is in the air but both of their baggage’s will give them second thoughts. Maybe catching your own HEA starts with learning to love yourself at first. Cute, emotional, entertaining reading with quirky but so much adorable characters deserved my four sweet, swoon stars! Special thanks to NetGalley and SOURCEBOOKS Casablanca for sharing this digital reviewer copy with me in exchange my honest thoughts.

But soon after their encounter, they meet again, and their friendship begins. Jasper is an improv actor who agrees to help Hollyn/Miz Poppy as he sees that helping her will be a win-win. She will do her video and he will get recognition as an actor. As with most romance books, you know where this is going. The writing is on the proverbial wall. It is the journey that is important. I found this to be an enjoyable journey with two likeable characters who have their own struggles. This book is a nice way to escape the world for a while. The author has a master’s degree in social work and put her knowledge and skills to use in creating a believable character with anxiety and Tourette's syndrome. One minor character in this book will be featured in the next book. You will have to read that one to find out who! An enjoyable yet predictable read. I do like that nothing in this book felt rushed and the book did not end abruptly. That is my biggest complaint with romance books. I will happily read the next book in the series. Thank you to Sourcebooks Casablanca and NetGalley who provided me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All the thoughts and opinions are my own.

Jasper, an aspiring actor, starts an improv class and gives Hollyn private lessons to help her with confidence. Their friendship could turn into something more, but then Hollyn’s best friend tells her he still loves her. Who will Hollyn pick? This is a really cute story and I liked how it discussed Tourette’s. This is something I don’t know a lot about, so I found it very interesting to see how Hollyn felt in different. It was also interesting to see how different people reacted to her. Some people were awful but most people were supportive. Jasper wants to be an actor and is working on getting funding to start his own Improv club. He ends up with some difficult choices to make. I really enjoyed Hollyn and Jasper’s characters and their friends were also entertaining and supportive. I really enjoyed Yes & I Love You and can’t wait to read the next book in the series. I listened to the audiobook narrated by Desiree Ketchum and really enjoyed her narration. I am so glad I chose to listen to this audiobook.

Her facial ticks have prevented her from fully living her life, and it’s a pleasure to watch her come into her own and find acceptance through love and friendship. - You’ll likely enjoy the comedy improv setting, which is where the “Yes &” title comes from. It’s an overall nice metaphor for life, too. Whatever is thrown your way, just say yes & go with it. - You should be prepared that this is an open-door romance, so the naughty bits are quite naughty! Words starting with “C” that make me really uncomfortable are used a lot. In fact, Loren’s previous books are classified as erotica. I did not know that beforehand but sure do now! - You might want to consider the audiobook. It’s narrated by Desiree Ketchum who does a great job with emotions, voices, and inflections. (Both the audiobook and the ebook are currently available on the Hoopla library app.) Yes & I Love You is part one of Loren’s Say Everything duology. The second part, What If You & Me, is slated for publication this July and will follow Andi, a secondary character from Y&ILY. 3.5 stars My thanks to Dreamscape Media and the author for providing me with a gifted advance listener copy of the audiobook via NetGalley.

Though Hollyn refuses to let him in. I loved both these characters and cheered for them as their attraction grew! The author did an amazing job of handling the topic of nervous system disorders in this case Tourette’s . Once again I have been lucky to come across an original premise in a genre that usually follows a common formula. Be warned. There is definitely heat between these characters and the pages!🔥 I listened to the audio version and was instantly drawn in by the narrator who did an amazing job of breathing life and love into these characters.💗 I cannot wait for book two of this series What If You & Me to be released! I’m already watching for it! Posted to: https://books-are-a-girls-best-friend... Thank you to NetGalley and Dreamscape Media for an 🎧 to listen and review.

It follows Hollyn, the reviewer behind the enigma 'Miz Poppy'. Hollyn has been hiding from the public for years because of her anxiety and Tourettes. But when her boss demands that she reveal herself, she realises that she will need to overcome her fears. Jasper, an extroverted improv actor could be just the person to help her. They strike up a deal to help each other- and you can guess where it goes from there! I was completely engrossed in the story from the get go, invested in the main romance, and I sympathised with the main characters. It was by all accounts a predictable, trope-filled book- but that was exactly what I was looking for! The additional layers of a protagonist with social anxiety and Tourettes made it feel more real and raw. The scenes about Jasper's improv were really interesting to me, and made what could have been an overdone story refreshed and fun. "Love isn't rational. It's a risk. It's always a risk. So there's only one thing we can do." The banter between our two protagonists was a joy to read. Their chemistry was palpable, the steamy scenes *chef's kiss*, and they clearly worked well with each other. I liked seeing Jasper help Hollyn step out of her comfort zone, especially because it was made clear that it was her own strength and determination that was the main factor. I therefore didn't think that this book fell into the 'cured by the love interest' trope which is always a good thing! My only real complaint is the unnecessary love triangle that was introduced. I don't hate love triangles by principle- I actually enjoy them sometimes! But in this case I feel the story would have been the same, if not better, without it. I thought that character could have been really valuable for Hollyn's growth and just a good guy in general- but he was kind of ruined for me after that. Overall, I was really pleasantly surprised by this book! I cannot wait to read the second book in the duology- or any other Roni Loren I can get my hands on.

    this was very hard for me to read. I don't usually need CWs, but this book presents a main character with such severe anxiety that I *worried about her.* Not because of her Tourette's syndrome, which as some other reviewers pointed out, did seem carefully handled [I don't have much experience with this and would defer to other readers on this, of course], but because her anxiety is more than just social.

It's described very physically in the book: she breathes heavier, clenches her fists, it escalates her facial tics which make her uncomfortable, and that just exacerbates her anxiety even more. She avoids talking to people and almost became a shut as a coping mechanism for how painful and uncomfortable her social interactions are. On page, the description of this for her is pretty intense. This was a woman I liked a lot and felt so much love for, and I wanted her to feel good about herself and her place in the world. That's why I was troubled by the plot of the book, which seemed to suggest that improv and a new boyfriend could solve her lifelong struggle with these issues---I just kept wondering....how? I felt like Hollyn deserved more care and attention from the author than she got, because the way it read to me (a non professional person trying to explain how it felt to someone who just has friends with anxiety) was that falling in love will magically reduce symptoms of anxiety. Or a fun new activity you enjoy with your boyfriend can be a therapy? And shit, what do I know, maybe it can be. But it felt...glib. The characters were fine. I liked her a lot, Jasper was okay, but this book just felt like it had WAY TOO MUCH and the plot was just lots of them rushing around from problem to problem and some third act drama with other characters felt forced. YMMV, of course, but ultimately this just wasn't for me.

I'd never read anything by this author. When I stumbled upon this book and noticed Colleen Hoover's name on the blurb, I figured I'd give it a try. I listened to the audiobook and thought the narrator did a fantastic job.

    After a heavy dose of historical fiction and psychological thrillers, it was time to switch to something much lighter. Happily, I selected Yes & I Love You written by Roni Loren. Hollyn Tate is a popular entertainment reviewer in New Orleans who writes under the pseudonym Miz Poppy. As a writer, she is smart, insightful and a bit snarky but in life, she keeps to herself.

Happily, I selected Yes & I Love You written by Roni Loren. Hollyn Tate is a popular entertainment reviewer in New Orleans who writes under the pseudonym Miz Poppy. As a writer, she is smart, insightful and a bit snarky but in life, she keeps to herself. The social anxiety she suffers from is a result of having Tourette syndrome. Jasper Deares, a struggling actor/improv performer takes a job as a barista in the office where Hollyn works. After an awkward first meeting, a friendship starts to develop. Hollyn is attracted to Jasper but believes he is way out of her league. But Jasper has his own struggles too, they are just not visible as are Hollyn’s. And he is drawn to Hollyn. When Hollyn is told she will need to produce a video version of her column, she is mortified but Jasper offers to help prepare her. Jasper, in turn, is trying to get more exposure for his improv group and once he discovers that Hollyn is the influential Miz Poppy, he believes a positive review from her can make all the difference. This is a sweet book with humor and warmth and lots of charming and witty banter. There is enough steaminess to be a warning for younger readers or if you don’t wish to read anything explicit. Fans of rom-com novels should love this book and if you are not a normal reader of the genre, this might be a perfect book to read when you need a break from heavier books. Many thanks to NetGalley, Sourcebooks Casablanca and the author for the opportunity to read Yes & I Love You in advance of its March 2, 2021 publication date. Review posted on MicheleReader.com.

No lie, when it's good - it's like next level good. That said, it wasn't a perfect reading experience. I felt like the first half of the book was a little slow. There were still these moments where I was pulled completely into the story, and I never - not once - wanted to put it down in favor for something else. But there were times when I found myself skimming past parts that seemed to drag for me, scenes that I felt like could have been told and not shown - possibly because I was so greedy to get more Hollyn and Jasper deliciousness. Basically, the pacing was a little off for me and it literally was the only thing that kept it from being overall next level for me. Because, make no mistake, they are absolutely delicious together. I loved every single minute spent with their flawed, quirky personalities. Their unlikely connection piqued my curiosity, and their smart - sometimes sexy - banter charmed me completely. These guys. I loved them so much. I loved their story, the evolution of their characters, and the sweet, honest way that they loved each other. Yes & I Love You was refreshing and original. It was smart, sweet, and steamy, and my heart wrapped around these characters and their adorable love story with reckless abandon. The ending was perfection and I'm ready to see what's next for this new series! ~ Shelly, 4 Stars

I loved the interaction between Hollyn and Jasper, they had amazing chemistry and were a great match. I really enjoyed seeing Hollyn loosen up and be more comfortable around him. The development of their relationship had a great pacing, and I really liked the writing style of the author. Yes & I Love You was a great contemporary romance. I look forward to reading more books Roni Loren.

It helps young readers in excepting their flaws. I was very much engrossed in the story from the start and it kept me up all night. I liked how the story moved with some laughs and lovey dovey messages in between. The characters are very well developed and felt just like us. ____ Thank You to NetGalley and Publisher for sending me the eARC in exchange for a honest opinion.

    Hollyn had been pushing herself out of her comfort zone, little by little, but when management wanted her column to include video segments, it seemed like an insurmountable challenge. She needed to find a way to feel more comfortable on camera, and Jasper and improv might be the answer. The first thing that grabbed me in this book was Hollyn. She had such a great voice. She was sassy and snarky, and I loved her wit and candor. She was also trying really hard to take control of her life.

She was sassy and snarky, and I loved her wit and candor. She was also trying really hard to take control of her life. Her Tourette's manifested when she was younger, and due to bullying, her mother pulled her out of school. This isolation might have kept the bullies at bay, but it also kept her in a bubble. She had to work harder than most due to her anxiety and all those years of not exercising certain social skills. I thought it was very brave of her to take these steps to steer her life in her desired direction. Yes & I Love You was a bit of different experience from Loren's last book. It was much lighter and packed with humor. There was a good chunk of the story dedicated to learning and doing improv, and this was being done by some very funny characters. I really enjoyed these parts, and there were lots of laughs. Loren integrated improv into this story in a great way, and I was happy that it was what brought Jasper and Hollyn together. It was easy to see that Hollyn and Jasper had great chemistry from the very beginning. I definitely grew to enjoy and like Jasper, but some of the things he did made me want to throttle him. I gave him some leeway due to his past, which was heartbreaking, and he did eventually earn my trust and adoration. I know people will grow frustrated with Jasper, but I promise he will do things that will make the happy tears flow. This book was so delightful. I had an incredible time reading this. The banter, the humor, the romance -- it kept me captivated from beginning to end. *ARC provided in exchange for an honest review. BLOG | INSTAGRAM |TWITTER | BLOGLOVIN | FRIEND ME ON GOODREADS

The main narrator is 20-something Hollyn Tate (3rd person POV). The book takes place in New Orleans. Hollyn has Tourette's and she also suffers from extreme anxiety whenever she has to speak to people. She writes an entertainment column under a pseudonym. I found all of these aspects to be very unique. And I thought that they all added a lot to the story, especially her anxiety. There is also a male narrator (also 3rd person POV). The beginning wasn't bad. But I wasn't super invested in the story or the characters. What I did love was Hollyn's new friend, Andi. And the improv aspect of the story. The romance was decent. But this book was much sexier than I was expecting from the cover. The end was really good and definitely brought up my rating. Overall, this was a sweet, charming, romantic story. Thanks to netgalley and Sourcebooks Casablanca for allowing me to read this book.

    The Tourette syndrome rep is done well. I love the main characters. The writing is upbeat and mature. Totally enjoyed the unassuming chemistry between the characters. The story wrapped up well and good. Thank you, author and the publisher for the ARC.

    Yes and I Love You is such a heartfelt and lovable read. Hollyn is a popular anonymous reviewer who is reserved and anxious, she has Tourette’s and her tics are heightened when she’s nervous. Living a sheltered life is how she copes until she meets Jasper. I adored these two together and thought they had awesome chemistry and overall it was a super fun and sexy romance

Likable and funny characters. Neuro-diverse characters I haven't seen represented before and the characters grew throughout the book. Made for one successful rom-com that I needed at this time. Hollyn is a young woman that has a successful column where she writes under the pen name Miz Poppy. People absolutely love her. She is honest and fun and is whip smart.... in her column. In real life, she has Tourette's and has a very difficult time interacting with people or anyone that doesn't about her tics. One day at her work space, she runs into the new 'coffee guy'. Jasper is this relaxed, happy-go-lucky guy that appears to be someone that everyone likes. But Jasper is only back in his hometown because things didn't pan out for him in Hollywood. He is a theatre guy, but his improvisation skills is where he flourishes. Jasper gets the feeling upon their first run in that Hollyn is not put on by his charm. And this is where our story between these characters starts. While Hollyn has something obviously different about her that she feels uncomfortable about, Jasper has something a little hidden. A past that makes him act a certain way towards others as well as a side of ADHD. But these two are not going to let those things rule their lives. They are going to take control of what they can. "It's like a drug, Hollyn...It's taking control back from everyone else and saying, 'This is who I am and I don't give a damn what you think.' When you get to that place, you hold all the chips in the poker game. they can't beat you. The fear fades." I enjoyed watching Jasper pull Hollyn out of her comfort zone and I loved that she was the one to push herself first. The relationship/friendship that forms between them is full of sexy banter and awkward conversations where they open up to one another. I liked seeing them change and blossom right in front of me. And it wasn't just Jasper helping Hollyn. It was Hollyn and others in their work place helping them both. The supporting characters were just as fun and entertaining as the two main characters. They were fun and quirky and made for a delightful, sexy and entertaining story between two unlikely characters. This was the first book I've read by Roni Loren, but it won't be my last. The unique perspective on a neuro disorder was enlightening and welcome. I liked that Jasper and Hollyn were tough enough to fight their demons to work on their self development and achieve it with one another. My only issue I had was at the very end and how Jasper reacted to a certain situation...BUT, this story was about discovering oneself and he definitely did that and he redeemed himself quite quickly. Yes & I Love You was just the light, sexy and fun read I needed at this time and it marked all the boxes I was looking for. Not 100% perfect, but perfect for me and my dark heart. "Love isn't rational. It's a risk. It's always a risk. So there's only one thing we can do."

Her strength and her constant fight for self improvement are very inspiring and give her depth (and the book too). Jasper is great to but I think he's some kind of catalyzer for Hollyn to grow, his character seems a little weaker than Hollyn. I liked the rest of characters (actually, almost every character is likable), especially Cal (will he get a book too? I hope so!). It's my first Roni Loren book and I enjoyed a lot, it's well written and very easy to read. I'm looking forward to keep on reading this series and will definitely read more of Roni Loren. --------------- Qué estupenda sorpresa ha sido este libro!!! Divertido, sexy, emotivo... A pesar de que me costó un poco entrar en él, cuando lo he hecho ha sido una gozada. Los protagonistas son adorables, especialmente Hollyn, que en ocasiones me ha recordado a Stella, la protagonista de The Kiss Quotient. Me ha enganchado, me ha evadido de la realidad y me ha dejado con una estupenda sensación de buen rollo y la sonrisa en la boca. A ver si me inspiro y le hago una pequeña reseña en el blog!

    This was my first book of Loren's but will NOT be the last. What a story! I adored the way many different things were approached in this story. We saw disorders, mental awareness, the normalcy of therapy, and loss.

I really liked reading from the perspective of characters who struggle with disorders such as anxiety, Tourette syndrome, ADHD, and from others who have been through abandonment. The author definitely did a great job portraying how people who deal with these conditions cope with life. This book felt so real and fun, I hope more people pick it up and love it as much as I did.

    Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

    Sometimes you read a book that leaves you with so many good feelings that you want to dive into it again just to see if you can keep them going and that’s exactly how I felt when I finished Yes & I Love You. I loved the way author Roni Loren wrote characters who were marginalized and underrepresented in most of the arts and I applaud her for that, in addition I felt she was respectful of their disorders and the way they can affect a person’s life. This book had a different feel from Ms. Loren’s Sometimes you read a book that leaves you with so many good feelings that you want to dive into it again just to see if you can keep them going and that’s exactly how I felt when I finished Yes & I Love You. I loved the way author Roni Loren wrote characters who were marginalized and underrepresented in most of the arts and I applaud her for that, in addition I felt she was respectful of their disorders and the way they can affect a person’s life. This book had a different feel from Ms. Loren’s other books but not in a bad way, it was lighter and had a bit more of a women’s fiction vibe (but this heavy romantic elements). I was mesmerized by these characters, their story, and invested in getting to the end to see how it would all turn out. Living with social anxiety brought on by her Tourette syndrome, Hollyn Tate is doing her best at getting out and having a life in her new home town of New Orleans. Spurred on by her therapist, and her best friend who lives in Baton Rouge, Hollyn rents office space in WorkAround, a co-op office for creative types. Hollyn is Miz Poppy, an arts and entertainment journalist whose real identity isn’t known by anyone other than her, her best friend, and her boss. She is still not completely comfortable in her office space, but she knows she needs to be around other people even if it terrifies her. Jasper Deares is back in New Orleans after a short stint in L.A. where his then girlfriend made it and he crashed and burned. He’s taken a job as a barista at WorkAround while continuing to work with the Improv group, Hell Yes! The minute they meet there’s attraction which causes Hollyn to give off not interested vibes to Jasper who she believes is totally out of her league, little does she know he’s feeling the same way. Hollyn amazed me throughout this book, she struggled, yet she kept putting herself out these and began to realize that she was holding herself back. She was smart, funny, snarky, and so damn resilient. Her life hadn’t been easy from bullying to being sheltered, yet she managed to go to college, have a first relationship with someone she trusted, and finally moving to a new city on her own. I loved watching her make friends, and opening up and asking for what she wanted from Jasper. I love watching their friendship bloom and the way Jasper helped Hollyn begin to see that everyone had their own insecurities. The more comfortable Hollyn was around Jasper, the more she opened up to other people she came into contact with which enabled her to take the steps she needed to keep her job. While I wasn’t thrilled with the ex’s drama, Cal’s relationship as Hollyn’s best friend was important and even though he threw a wrench into her life, it was actually good because it forced her to make some decisions with the help of an on page therapy session. I could have done without Jasper’s ex-girlfriend reappearing yet her callousness led Jasper to figuring out what was important in life. I enjoyed every unique moment of Yes & I Love You; the dialog was smart, the characters well developed and quirky, and the pace kept me captivated from start to finish.

    I received a free eARC from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. This is one of those occasions that I wish it was possible to rate in half stars. I want to give this book 3.5 stars, but officially I'm rounding up to four stars because overall I liked it more than I didn't. I really liked the characters, appreciate the mental health rep, and the sex/consent is on point. It just didn't quite keep it together in the third act for me. The chemistry between the MCs is great. H I received a free eARC from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. This is one of those occasions that I wish it was possible to rate in half stars. I want to give this book 3.5 stars, but officially I'm rounding up to four stars because overall I liked it more than I didn't. I really liked the characters, appreciate the mental health rep, and the sex/consent is on point. It just didn't quite keep it together in the third act for me. The chemistry between the MCs is great. Hollyn has Tourette's and severe anxiety, which makes it hard for her to meet people and share the smart, witty, funny person that she is. I found the depiction of her mental health challenges to be honest and real. Tourette's isn't something we typically see in romance and it's refreshing to see other conditions explored. Jasper has ADHD and grew up in the foster system. Like with Hollyn, Jasper's issues were connected to his past but he felt like a real, modern character dealing with neurodiversity and attachment issues. He's not a cinnamon roll, but he's a Genuinely Good Guy who just wants someone to care about and believe in him. I always appreciate Roni Loren's treatment of mental health in her books; it's a part of these characters and their lives, but she handles it with such care and reminds us that we are not our diagnoses--we are people with diagnoses and lives and dreams and relationships. The MCs' relationship was believable and engaging with plenty of mini-tropes thrown in for the devoted romance reader. Where it falls apart somewhat is later in the book, but I can't go into specifics without spoilers. I will say it revolves around the MCs' secondary relationships; it felt like unnecessary drama and just too much, plot-wise. I think there could have been other ways to accomplish the same angst without all the extra *stuff* and I ended up skimming the last 20%. I'm not against a third act breakup, but I didn't particularly like the way this one occurred. So 3.5 stars it is. CW aside there are plenty of reason to read this book: the mental health rep (complete with therapy on-page!), the super hot sex scenes (a Roni Loren staple), and the moments of humor and quirkiness that will resonate with a lot of readers. But I also know that this author has more to give and I wish I loved it more. CW: depictions of anxiety, Tourette's, ADHD; childhood neglect; character with experience in the foster system; descriptions of past bullying; references to suicidal thoughts and behaviors (not depicted); ableist comments about ADHD and Tourette's behaviors; character has emergency surgery/scenes in hospital; alcohol use

    3.5/5 Roni Loren is one of my favorite romance authors and while I was a little nervous that Yes & I Love You would be more on women's fiction than romance based on the choice of cover, I was still looking forward to reading the book. This is a book that starts off strongly but falters just a bit towards the end, but because Roni Loren's writing is engaging, it's easy to just sink into the story and not be too bothered.

This is a book that starts off strongly but falters just a bit towards the end, but because Roni Loren's writing is engaging, it's easy to just sink into the story and not be too bothered. The central focus of this book is Hollyn, the main character, who has Tourette's Syndrome and anxiety that has made socializing very hard for her. Though I cannot speak for the Tourrette's representation in this book (if I'm being honest, I knew nothing of the details of this condition), to an outsider, it felt like it was portrayed pretty honestly and with a lot of care. I really really liked Hollyn and her journey in this book. She really takes control of her life with the help of her therapist to push herself outside of her comfort zone. I imagine that it takes a lot of courage with someone with severe anxiety to leave the safety of their small town and to move to a brand new city. She secretly also writes reviews on the New Orleans nightlife, a job that has allowed her to be witty, funny, and sassy without her ticks and anxiety being an obstacle. As I said, I found Hollyn to be endearing and I was rooting for her happiness. Her love interest, Jasper, wasn't as likable as Hollyn, in my opinion. My feelings for him were all over the place. There were times when I enjoyed his personality and his gentleness towards Hollyn, but at other times I was a little frustrated at him - after reading the book, I did wonder if this was a deliberate choice on the author's part to highlight his ADHD, but I can't confirm. This is 100% the romance reader in me saying this, but he needed to work a bit harder to prove to me that he deserved Hollyn. He is not a bad or problematic man, but simply someone who needed frequent reality checks. I also can't say that I was into the improv thing Jasper wanted to make a career out of. It just seems like such an unstable career path and that just stresses me out. I will say though that the two had incredible chemistry together. They are fiery hot together. I really enjoyed the sex scenes in Yes & I Love You because they were an outlet for Hollyn to really experiment with her desires and be comfortable asking for what she wanted. Jasper was great in that regard because he listened to her and her needs and focused entirely on her pleasure. I've been bemoaning the lack of high heat in many traditionally published romance novels lately, so I was very pleasantly surprised by how steamy this book was. I mean their first sex scene was a scorcher and there's also a scene involving 69ing! I was here for all of it! What took the rating down for me in Yes & I Love You are the conflicts the couples face. I'm more okay with third-act breakups in romance novels than some readers, but I despise when they involve exes, and this is sadly one of those cases. Everything did resolve itself in the end and ultimately, I did leave this book feeling like this was a good romance novel. If you're a fan of Roni Loren, you are certainly going to enjoy Yes & I Love You. This is the first book in her new series and the next book will feature one of Hollyn's new friends, who is a true-crime podcaster. I look forward to seeing her fall in love. CWs: Tourette's syndrome, anxiety, ADHD, mention of the foster care system Relationship disclosure: Roni Loren & I are mutuals on social media.

Keep in mind that my comments are going to be based solely on what I've read, and not the whole story. I was really, really excited for Yes and I Love You - and it delivered in almost every way. I loved our main character. Hollyn's an avid media-junkie who reviews movies and entertainment under a pseudonym for a popular website online. Her reviews are kick-butt, and she's really popular. Hollyn has Tourettes (representation I haven't seen before, and so appreciated), and has grown up a really sheltered life, which has led to a long struggle with some serious anxiety. We watch as she overcomes hurdle after hurdle in her career, personal life, and mental health journey. It's all kickstarted when Hollyn first takes up an office out of her house, where she works around other creatives. This is where she meets Jasper - the starving actor type who has taken up the recently vacated barista job at Hollyn's workplace. They're instantly attracted, but start on a rocky footing. After that, well, I don't want to say much more, because, spoilers. The only reason I decided to put this one down was because there was way too much sex for me. Typically, if a book has any steamy scenes I just skip over them, but with this one is was not a sexy scene here and there, it was more of a slew of them for a good chunk of my reading time. And that made me uncomfortable. With that in mind, the premise and execution of this book was, in my opinion, fabulous, and I will keep my eye out for other releases from this author that might be a little more to my personal taste!

Hollyn's character had a sad background, albeit different circumstances than Jasper, but that helped to shape her as an adult. I could relate to Hollyn's character. She was shy and uncomfortable with crowds, new people, etc. Now, I can't relate to her entirely but to a certain account. All in all, this was just a witty, endearing, full of smiles type of book. #avidreaderbookblog #readingislife #bookblogger #bookworm #bookaddict #angst #chicklit #dirtytalker #greatwriting #heartbreaking #hot #lovetriangle #read #romance #sexualtension #slowburn #steamy #sweet #witty #roniloren #newrelease #comingsoon
