Gym Dandy Cover

The Best Review Evah!

valkovalin posted the most wonderful review of GYM DANDY on Obsidian Bookshelf. She calls it a “sparkling romantic comedy”. It's so fulfilling to have someone not just enjoy your book, but also to "get" your characters and your writer's choices. I feel validated and grateful.

The review is quite long, combining analysis, opinion and description. Here's a few choice sentences:

Gym Dandy is a delightful romantic comedy... There is so much to praise here that it's hard to know where to begin. First, the humor is perfectly balanced with the realism of the story. Gym Dandy offers the sort of humor that I crave and rarely get in my reading: realistic humor that derives from character interactions and believable misunderstandings.

You know that dialogue is working perfectly when you the reader can hear them speaking in your mind like a soundtrack. What a riot it would be to sit behind them in a café somewhere and listen in on their conversation.

We also get treated to a hot, explicit sex scene in the end! I highly recommend Gym Dandy.

Thank you so much, Val.
