    4.5 There was one last perfect day. Modern retelling of Jane Austen's Persuasion Well,this was a pleasant surprise.I'm always a bit nervous about reading something from an Author I haven't come across before but I'm so glad I requested this.I read it in about ...

    Alfred Tennyson was such a fan of Austen's Persuasion, he famously exclaimed, "Show me the exact spot where Louisa Musgrove fell." I'll do Tennyson one better and shout, "Show me the exact spot where Liz almost drowned!" Who's Liz, you may ask? She's the woman Finn woos as reven...

    As this story started out, in my opinion, it was freaking *PERFECT*. One to give even Anyta Sunday a run for her money in the feels and slow burn department. I loved the MC's, I loved their story, and there wasn't a single thing that I would've changed. AND THEN THE RAINS CAME....

    4.25 Stars Love doesn?t burn out just because the timing?s wrong. It stays. Even when you don?t want it to, even when you try to deny it, it stays. It grows. It never leaves. Perfect Day is a quick read and a second chance love story. It?s well-written with well-developed...

    I was going to whip up this really pretty review with graphics and squee my head off about how much I loved this book, how I devoured it but that shit takes time, y'know? And I'm chomping at the bit to get to "Love Around the Corner" so I'll leave this quote: Suddenly, all he wante...

    -4.25 stars- ?This is the beginning, Josh. This is the beginning of everything for us.? But of course it wasn?t. It was the end. It was the last golden hour of the last perfect day.? What an amazing little gem that was! I?m very glad a friend recommended it or else i...

    *** 3.5 stars *** Persuasion is my least favorite of Austen's novels, so I wasn't sure what I was in for with this modern-day m/m retelling. I do love a good second-chance romance, though, so decided it was worth a try. There was an appropriate amount of suffering from the injuri...

    Si lo valorase en comparación con la mayoría de lo que he leído este año sería 5, se lleva una menos porque al final me ha resultado más fluffy que Angst, pero es muy romántica y evocatica, me encanta el mar y para mi es un tercer personaje en esta novela. Se nota que la autora ...

    5 stars Modern m/m version of Persuasion! It's one of my favourite Austen novels and it's the ultimate second chance love story. This version captured everything I loved about Persuasion, and second chance romance in general. So beautifully written too. ...

    Ooh, I adored this story of second chances! Josh and Finn are young passionate lovers who plan to go away to California to start a new life together - Finn as an actor and Josh a concert violinist. But when the moment comes, Josh reneges and remains home with his dysfunctional family. ...

    I've given this an A- at AAR, so that's 4.5 stars rounded up. Sally Malcolm?s first published m/m romance is a contemporary retelling of Jane Austen?s Persuasion (which regularly vies with Emma for first place in my ranking of Austen?s novels!) set in a sleepy New York seaside...

    4.5 stars The writing flows beautifully keeping you in the story with ease. I loved both Josh and Finn. My first book from this author. ...

    I loved this. I have a feeling this will end up on my Top 10 books of the year. This is a m/m retelling of Jane Austin's Persuasion. You do not have to have read that though to enjoy this. The author takes the bones of that story but modernizes it. The prologue starts in the past ...

    Amazingly atmospheric, and a wonderful slow burn (my favorite trope). Sweet and gentle, I loved Joshua. ...

    Alfred Tennyson was such a fan of Austen's Persuasion, he famously exclaimed, "Show me the exact spot where Louisa Musgrove fell." I'll do Tennyson one better and shout, "Show me the exact spot where Liz almost drowned!" Who's Liz, you may ask? She's the woman Finn woos as reven...

    As this story started out, in my opinion, it was freaking *PERFECT*. One to give even Anyta Sunday a run for her money in the feels and slow burn department. I loved the MC's, I loved their story, and there wasn't a single thing that I would've changed. AND THEN THE RAINS CAME....

    4.25 Stars Love doesn?t burn out just because the timing?s wrong. It stays. Even when you don?t want it to, even when you try to deny it, it stays. It grows. It never leaves. Perfect Day is a quick read and a second chance love story. It?s well-written with well-developed...

    *** 3.5 stars *** Persuasion is my least favorite of Austen's novels, so I wasn't sure what I was in for with this modern-day m/m retelling. I do love a good second-chance romance, though, so decided it was worth a try. There was an appropriate amount of suffering from the injuri...

    Si lo valorase en comparación con la mayoría de lo que he leído este año sería 5, se lleva una menos porque al final me ha resultado más fluffy que Angst, pero es muy romántica y evocatica, me encanta el mar y para mi es un tercer personaje en esta novela. Se nota que la autora ...

    5 stars Modern m/m version of Persuasion! It's one of my favourite Austen novels and it's the ultimate second chance love story. This version captured everything I loved about Persuasion, and second chance romance in general. So beautifully written too. ...

    Ooh, I adored this story of second chances! Josh and Finn are young passionate lovers who plan to go away to California to start a new life together - Finn as an actor and Josh a concert violinist. But when the moment comes, Josh reneges and remains home with his dysfunctional family. ...

    I've given this an A- at AAR, so that's 4.5 stars rounded up. Sally Malcolm?s first published m/m romance is a contemporary retelling of Jane Austen?s Persuasion (which regularly vies with Emma for first place in my ranking of Austen?s novels!) set in a sleepy New York seaside...

    4.5 stars The writing flows beautifully keeping you in the story with ease. I loved both Josh and Finn. My first book from this author. ...

    I loved this. I have a feeling this will end up on my Top 10 books of the year. This is a m/m retelling of Jane Austin's Persuasion. You do not have to have read that though to enjoy this. The author takes the bones of that story but modernizes it. The prologue starts in the past ...

    This year might have had a lot of ups and downs, but so far it has also given me two queered Jane Austen retellings that have hit it out the park. This one, a reimaging of Austen?s Persuasion, was thoroughly enjoyable, emotionally enthralling, and damn entertaining. I?ve always ...

    As this story started out, in my opinion, it was freaking *PERFECT*. One to give even Anyta Sunday a run for her money in the feels and slow burn department. I loved the MC's, I loved their story, and there wasn't a single thing that I would've changed. AND THEN THE RAINS CAME....

    4.25 Stars Love doesn?t burn out just because the timing?s wrong. It stays. Even when you don?t want it to, even when you try to deny it, it stays. It grows. It never leaves. Perfect Day is a quick read and a second chance love story. It?s well-written with well-developed...

    *** 3.5 stars *** Persuasion is my least favorite of Austen's novels, so I wasn't sure what I was in for with this modern-day m/m retelling. I do love a good second-chance romance, though, so decided it was worth a try. There was an appropriate amount of suffering from the injuri...

    Si lo valorase en comparación con la mayoría de lo que he leído este año sería 5, se lleva una menos porque al final me ha resultado más fluffy que Angst, pero es muy romántica y evocatica, me encanta el mar y para mi es un tercer personaje en esta novela. Se nota que la autora ...

    5 stars Modern m/m version of Persuasion! It's one of my favourite Austen novels and it's the ultimate second chance love story. This version captured everything I loved about Persuasion, and second chance romance in general. So beautifully written too. ...

    Ooh, I adored this story of second chances! Josh and Finn are young passionate lovers who plan to go away to California to start a new life together - Finn as an actor and Josh a concert violinist. But when the moment comes, Josh reneges and remains home with his dysfunctional family. ...

    I've given this an A- at AAR, so that's 4.5 stars rounded up. Sally Malcolm?s first published m/m romance is a contemporary retelling of Jane Austen?s Persuasion (which regularly vies with Emma for first place in my ranking of Austen?s novels!) set in a sleepy New York seaside...

    4.5 stars The writing flows beautifully keeping you in the story with ease. I loved both Josh and Finn. My first book from this author. ...

    I loved this. I have a feeling this will end up on my Top 10 books of the year. This is a m/m retelling of Jane Austin's Persuasion. You do not have to have read that though to enjoy this. The author takes the bones of that story but modernizes it. The prologue starts in the past ...

    Amazingly atmospheric, and a wonderful slow burn (my favorite trope). Sweet and gentle, I loved Joshua. ...

    This year might have had a lot of ups and downs, but so far it has also given me two queered Jane Austen retellings that have hit it out the park. This one, a reimaging of Austen?s Persuasion, was thoroughly enjoyable, emotionally enthralling, and damn entertaining. I?ve always ...

    As this story started out, in my opinion, it was freaking *PERFECT*. One to give even Anyta Sunday a run for her money in the feels and slow burn department. I loved the MC's, I loved their story, and there wasn't a single thing that I would've changed. AND THEN THE RAINS CAME....

    4.25 Stars Love doesn?t burn out just because the timing?s wrong. It stays. Even when you don?t want it to, even when you try to deny it, it stays. It grows. It never leaves. Perfect Day is a quick read and a second chance love story. It?s well-written with well-developed...

    I was going to whip up this really pretty review with graphics and squee my head off about how much I loved this book, how I devoured it but that shit takes time, y'know? And I'm chomping at the bit to get to "Love Around the Corner" so I'll leave this quote: Suddenly, all he wante...

    -4.25 stars- ?This is the beginning, Josh. This is the beginning of everything for us.? But of course it wasn?t. It was the end. It was the last golden hour of the last perfect day.? What an amazing little gem that was! I?m very glad a friend recommended it or else i...

    *** 3.5 stars *** Persuasion is my least favorite of Austen's novels, so I wasn't sure what I was in for with this modern-day m/m retelling. I do love a good second-chance romance, though, so decided it was worth a try. There was an appropriate amount of suffering from the injuri...

    Si lo valorase en comparación con la mayoría de lo que he leído este año sería 5, se lleva una menos porque al final me ha resultado más fluffy que Angst, pero es muy romántica y evocatica, me encanta el mar y para mi es un tercer personaje en esta novela. Se nota que la autora ...

    5 stars Modern m/m version of Persuasion! It's one of my favourite Austen novels and it's the ultimate second chance love story. This version captured everything I loved about Persuasion, and second chance romance in general. So beautifully written too. ...

    Ooh, I adored this story of second chances! Josh and Finn are young passionate lovers who plan to go away to California to start a new life together - Finn as an actor and Josh a concert violinist. But when the moment comes, Josh reneges and remains home with his dysfunctional family. ...

    I've given this an A- at AAR, so that's 4.5 stars rounded up. Sally Malcolm?s first published m/m romance is a contemporary retelling of Jane Austen?s Persuasion (which regularly vies with Emma for first place in my ranking of Austen?s novels!) set in a sleepy New York seaside...

    4.5 stars The writing flows beautifully keeping you in the story with ease. I loved both Josh and Finn. My first book from this author. ...

    I loved this. I have a feeling this will end up on my Top 10 books of the year. This is a m/m retelling of Jane Austin's Persuasion. You do not have to have read that though to enjoy this. The author takes the bones of that story but modernizes it. The prologue starts in the past ...

    Amazingly atmospheric, and a wonderful slow burn (my favorite trope). Sweet and gentle, I loved Joshua. ...

    Persuasion??is??my??favorite??Jane??Austen??novel??. ?Nuff said. ...

    This year might have had a lot of ups and downs, but so far it has also given me two queered Jane Austen retellings that have hit it out the park. This one, a reimaging of Austen?s Persuasion, was thoroughly enjoyable, emotionally enthralling, and damn entertaining. I?ve always ...

    *** 4.5 Stars *** Oh, what a wonderful book! ...

    A complimentary copy was provided in exchange for an honest review. This was an emotional story, so much more than I was expecting. Finn and Josh were truly in love and it was unfortunate that they found each other when they were so young and just starting their lives. Josh was scar...

    ????? AND ????? from me. The fact that I spent most of the story with that wet stuff in my eyes ? is irrelevant. This was a superb recreation of Jane Austen's Persuasion for us M/M addicts, so full of feels it sometimes hurt to read the story ?. ...

    Perfect Story With names like Josh and Finn you already know this story is going to be amazing. And it was. Every page kept me wanting more. Great characters and well written. Their lives may have taken a detour down different roads, but their love remained strong. Eventually they?...

    ? 3.75 stars The first few chapters in the beginning are told with Now and Then, which I liked, but after about chapter 4 it stays in the now. The then being the beginning of Joshua and Finn's relationship and the now being 8 years after the relationship ended. 8 years where f...

    This was fuckin? awful. I two starred it because the author can write, but everything about this was awful. It reminded me of an m/f from about 40 years ago. Finn?s the man, and josh is the woman. Plug?m right in. All the (self imposed) torture!! All the angst! All the sufferi...

    Fabulous, wonderful story! 5+ stars. This seems to be my year for reading books that retell stories by famous authors. Perfect Day is a modern retelling of Jane Austen's Persuasion and I LOVED it. I must confess that I've never read any of Jane Austen's books but this is the sec...

    Well, this week?s read was a downright pleasure, folks. It wasn?t what I was expecting going in, yet I came out the other side thoroughly sated and filled with all the happiest of little sighs. Perfect Day by Sally Malcolm is a gender-bending retell of the classic Persuasion by Jan...
