Arber Selmani - Just ended the book. Very depressing, but the narration is perfect. I felt sad for the Sugar Daddy, as somehow he is left aside. But happily ever after, thats what I wish for Neil Byrne. Thanks for review <3

Alexa Y. - That title certainly makes it sound like a love story. But even if it really isn’t, I do like the idea of this story. It would be intriguing to read about Neil and find out his story; a good character always manages to catch my attention, and he sounds like one.

elena - I would hope for a love story too with that title! It also reminds me of a Talking Heads song. I love the last lines of your review and I can see how it’s easy to feel for Neil.

VeganYANerds - This sounds like a really interesting, but also quite a difficult, read, E. I’d like to think that things have changed, for the better, too!

Asheley Tart (@BookwormAsheley) - I didn’t realize that this was a reissue or anniversary edition until I looked this up on Goodreads just now! I wonder if the fact that it was written so long ago contributed to how it fell just a bit short in terms of it not quite being the love story you were hoping for? Great review, Estelle. Also, I really love the cover on this book. 🙂
