Get It Right, by Skye Kilaen


This is a novella that tells the story of Finn, who has just been released from prison. She deals with chronic migraines and used to volunteer at the prison clinic which is how she met Vivi, a nurse who worked there. Finn had feelings for Vivi but it was the wrong place, wrong time and the power dynamics might have put her in a bad position; but she bumps into Vivi after she is out and sparks don’t exactly fly.

I liked the story but there were some inconsistency issues. It gave us too many details at certain points and not enough at others. The characters were well developed but since their attraction to each other was cemented off-page, I didn’t get the gratification I expected from this romance. I liked the fact that Vivi is fat, but at the same time it felt like Finn constantly talks about how beautiful and hot Vivi is because of that fatness that it almost seemed fetish-y to me. Although I am sure that was not the intent, it seemed similar to the rhetoric of “you can be beautiful in spite of your fatness” to me. But it was a cute little story nonetheless, it was very queer and heartwarming which definitely upped my enjoyment factor.

I was provided an e-ARC by the author in exchange for my honest opinion.
