Of Fluff Angst And Light fluff angst and light the moments between Tara and her mother were sometimes heartbreaking to read she luckily has lots of lighthearted ones between herself and a slew of secondary characters to make up for it Her interactions with Kathryn Kath Kat went from being
"funny and teasing "and teasing flirty and downright sexy fairly soon but given the length of the book it was to be expected With great pacing and chemistry this book was real page turner The only very minor issue I had was that the last few chapters felt very sappy cheesy and everything was wrapped up with a bow that was a little too neat This ends with an overall 375 ratingTW homophobic slurs and behavior previous physical abusive relationship domestic violence CanoodlingThis ended up being OK after a rough startI did read reviews that mentioned light BDSM So I thought maybe a scene or two for fun But no This is a huge part of the main character Tara I don t get it so I can t relate And it s hard to stay interested when you ust can t connect I don t know anything about BDSM really But I did wonder how realistic an 18 year old would already be a Dom and playing with someone in her mom s house while said mom is out playing bingo for a couple of hours So she gets sent off to her Aunty in New Zealand And after a few years the house is getting cramped so her Aunty arranges to have her boss Katherine take her in So there
