Title F*ck Love
Author Tarryn Fisher
Helena Conway has fallen in love.
But not unprovoked.
Kit Isley is everything she’s not—unstructured, un-tethered,
and not even a little bit careful.
It could all be so beautiful … if he wasn’t dating her best friend.
Helena must defy her heart, do the right thing, and think of others.
Until she doesn’t.

LOVE♥ TRIANGLE ALERT!
A love triangle with a twist
I really do not like to read about love triangles, especially if there is a marriage and kids involved – I believe if you are married – leave each other beforehand – but do not break a person just because you think it is your right to do so, it is not fair to your partner yourself or the kids involved! (But that is just me, and we should all form our own opinions!)
There is always a reason for everything in life – in this one book my example is – THEY ARE NOT MARRIED, so I did not mind the love triangle!
This specific book had formed a lots of *what if* scenarios in my mind, this is not just a simple love story and broke my heart in parts.
Helena Land is 23, fresh out of college! She is awkward, raw, but beautiful in her own way. Also one of the sweetest girl I read about in a long time, she is caring, the problem with that is will she follow her heart her dreams or give her friend all the happiness – or fight for what she believe is love?
Type of Characters and my choices according to pictures :
Helena and Della have never shared the same taste in men, until the dream → THE dream Helena had about her best friend boyfriend, the dream was so real that she started to change her life according to that dream.
The biggest problems while you read this story is would Helena break the girl code
“Ho’s before bros!?”
Helena thoughts “There are definite, solid lines in life that should never be crossed. Developing a crush on your best friend boyfriend is one of them. To fall in love with a boy is one thing, but to fall in love with your best friend boy because of a dream is well, I’m f_cked.”
“Can a dream really influence your palate? I spend it thinking about the dream. A life I never knew I wanted. For the first time in days, I don‘t think I ‘m crazy.”
“I think everything is crazy. I ‘m trapped in a dream. The dream has invaded my world. What the hell?”
“I HAD A DREAM. DON‘T MARRY DELLA” note from Helena to Kit
“Give me a reason not to” Note from Kit to Helena
“How do you know, and I mean really know, when you‘re in love with someone? Helena
“It all feels like a dream,” Kit says.
“A dream, I repeat.” aren’t he right.
“Thick tongue, thicker thoughts. How does one declare lunacy? My chest begins to ache. This was a huge mistake. Timing is everything when you‘re about to tell someone you dreamed him into your heart.”
“And my initial thought is that I ‘m watching him cheat on me. Or maybe not me – dream Helena. But it feels weird and gross. But I ‘m not having it, and his use of the word love ‘makes me laugh BECAUSE Love is faithful, love is kind, love is patient.”
This book is full of Quotes, I loved:
There is nothing cast in stone – my opinion to each quote taken from book!
“Never treat a person how you do not want to be treated – my motto in life”
“You can‘t run away to find yourself. Yourself, is there no matter where you go.”
*WE ALL MAKE MISTAKES – WE ARE ONLY HUMAN*– and we are allowed to make mistakes in life, but to run away from mistakes is not the answer – you need to keep moving forward in life – never give up on your dreams, never give up on friends and people, maybe you win some mistakes maybe you lose some!
But in the end you will find happiness again, at the most unexpected times!</spoiler>
“The constant fight to keep love relevant, while growing and changing as a human, is the battle. You fight for them, fight to keep them, fight to love them. Do you fight for yourself, or do you fight for the relationship?”
WE fight for reasons
Sometimes the reason is valid sometimes not, but what matters in the end!
→ You DID YOUR BEST IN THAT GIVEN SITUATION!
I know it is sometimes hard to forgive people BECAUSE YOU FIRST NEED TO forgive yourself – just remember as soon as you forgiven yourself and others everything that happened in the past falls away!
“What can‘t you live without? There your answer Longing can come to a person at the most inopportune times.”
You sometimes think you will never be able to find that type of friendships again or to have friends who care about you again, but you will eventually!
But the time you give up you realize that one door close with a reason and another opened and you find friends when you need them the most!
A person who values you will always be there for you – you will always remain precious to them, even if you know you cannot be friends again, because *memories* stays with one forever, and sometimes those memories is so precious! And is the thing that makes life worthwhile and give you a smile when you need it the most!
Most people understand that you done some things with reasons, and although others do not see it, we all do things for reasons, an believe me sometimes the reasons was valid, sometimes we actually had to take a breather and listen,, but we are so caught up being angry we do not listen – but what is in the past is in the past – forget about it and keep moving forward, is my only advice!
“We were both on the search for something true at the same time.”
This is so true!
I just believe in one thing in life – do NOT JUDGE a person if you did not stand in his shoes at any given time! We all do things we regret – ASK me I done it, but what matters is Keep GOING FORWARD!
But then you find it again – you find the friendship and happiness and at the most unexpected times and places!
Life is not always sunshine and roses – but you can make it better if you choose too, you have the means to make choices, you can decide to make people happy or sad – or to let them go!
If you tried so many times for people to forgive you, the problems is that eventually that the door closes – and it is time to forgive yourself! Move forward and try not to make the same mistakes again!
I realized that ones if I forgave myself it is so easy to forgive others (my rule in life).
BUT if others forgive you does not matter– what matters is that you forgiven yourself and them!
“In the bible →
First cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.
Something even I forget, and I need constant reminders!
“Sometimes one person’s truth is another person love.”
There is so much truth I this sentence above!
People sometimes only see what they want to see and hear what they want to hear, but deep down they know the difference between right and wrong
When reading this sentence above “the sound of silence below comes to mind” words extracted below!
Sound of silence – Disturbed:
And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
People writing songs that voices never share
No one dare
Disturb the sound of silence
Hear my words that I might teach you
Take my arms that I might reach you”
But my words like silent raindrops fell
And echoed in the wells of silence
“Don‘t be upset that you can‘t attain constant happiness. It’s the quickest way to feel like a failure in life.”
NOBODY IS A FAILURE – End of story!
Fighting for things you believed in “correct or even not” is a choice and your believe, do not push it on someone else but don’t be angry because they do not believe it!
We all the right to have opinions in life, at any given time, <b>BUT remember – Do not think another’s opinion is not justified just because it is not yours, or that they have a say in life!
My advice – the world is a cruel place – you can keep moving forward –
or you can give up – I think it is better to keep moving forward in life, because if you do not stand up there is nobody that will help you up, people will forget about you – and soon you will be nothing but a bad memory!♥
Don’t expect a free ride from no one
Don’t hold a grudge or a chip and here’s why
Bitterness keeps you from flyin’
Always stay humble and kind
Know the difference between sleeping with someone
And sleeping with someone you love
“I love you” ain’t no pick up line so
Always stay humble and kind
“If each of our lives represented a page in a book, happiness would be the punctuation. It breaks up the parts that are too long.”
<spoiler>See even the book state we should always strive to obtain constant happiness, it is your choice to be happy or not, yes everyday in life is not easy but it is still a choice you have to make!
Confucius “He who says he can and he who says he can’t are both usually right”
Never give up on who you are, or on your dreams – you do not need to be somebody else, or read things to make other people happy – people will always love you for who you are, if they are real friends!
Gwen Stefani – Cool
Recommend to the following type of readers: →
Over 18’s etc.
Why my rating?→
I believe we find love when we least expect it, sometimes you give up on it, you even give up on finding friends again, and YOU KNOW you should not open your heart for friendship again! But you will never know if you do not try life is a gamble anyway so why not just try again!
Eventually you will find someone who deserve your friendship because that is the way life works – to believe in happiness and finding it gives you hope for the future, for friends – remember where one door closes another one opens!
Will I read it again – and recommend it!
I loved this book and will highly recommend it AND YES I WILL Read it again
My feelings while reading this: →
Have you ever read a book that which was so good you remember the exact day you read it as if it was yesterday, I remember that a few friends was very upset about the authors note – I actually loved her sick sense of humor in the note – it was so funny. *ANYWAY just good Memories*
To the Author
From my quotes above
Let me tell you something you already know. The world aren’t all sunshine and Rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place, and I don’t care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there if you let it. You, I or nobody is going to hit as hard as life.
But it aren’t about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward.
That’s how winning is done! Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or even a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place.
If I quit, however, it lasts forever. The margin for error is so small…one-half a step too late or early, and you don’t quite make it.
One half-second too slow, too fast, you don’t quite catch it. The inches we need are everywhere around us. They’re in every break of the game, every minute, every second.
You got a dream, you got to protect it.
People can’t do something themselves they want to tell you can’t do it. If you want something, go get it.
Don’t be afraid to fail. You can’t always win, but don’t afraid of making decisions. You have to believe that something different can happen.
He who says he can And he who says he can’t are both usually right.
Most of you said that you want to be successful, but you don’t want it bad. You just kind ‘a want it. You don’t want it bad than you want to party. You don’t want it as much as you want to be cool. Most of you don’t want success as much as you want to sleep!
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.
You have to dig deep down, dig deep down and ask yourselves, who do you want to be? Figuring out for yourselves what makes you happy, no matter how crazy it may sound to other people.
Make a choice. Just decide, what it’s going to be, who you’re going to be, how you are going to do it. Just decide.
Why not? Why can’t I be MVP of the league? Why can’t I be the best player in the league? I don’t see why. Why, why can’t I do that?
What is it you said to the kid? It aren’t about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward .Get up. Get up. Get up and don’t ever give up.
And we can stay here, get the shit kicked out of us…or we can fight our way back into the light. We can climb out of hell……one inch at a time. To be able at any moment
Sacrifice what you are for what you will become. Most of you won’t be successful because when you’re studying, and you get tired, you quit. ‘I’m not good in math.’
That’s right, because you never study! ‘I’m no good in rhyme.’ Because you never write before! Talent you have naturally.
Skill is only developed by hours and hours and hours of beating on your craft. If you are not making someone else’s life better, you’re wasting your time.
Don’t cry to quit, cry to keep going. Don’t cry to quit. You already in pain, you already hurt. Get a reward from it. If you know what you’re worth, go and get what you’re worth! But you got to be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you aren’t where you want to be because of him or her or anybody!
Cowards do that, and that aren’t you! You’re better than that! Every day is a new day. Every moment is a new moment. Now you’ve got to go out and show them that you’re a new creature. Now! I’m a show you how great I am!
In the seventeenth chapter of St. Luke, its written “the kingdom of God is within man”, not one man nor a group of men, but in all men! In you! You, the people, have the power, the power to create machines, the power to create happiness you, the people, have the power to make this life free and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure. Now! What are you going to do?
Because limits like fears are often just an illusion.
