ARC Review: Turbulence by Whitney G.

I love this book so hard. I love every Whitney G book and this one is just as good as the others.

I don't even really feel like doing the book summary thing because I just want to gush about this book in random unrelated sentences but hang on, lemme try to do my job. This is the story of Gillian and Jake. Gillian moved to New York to make something out of life. She was well on her way with her job at the NY Times but then something happens. It's not entirely clear what happened while Gillian was at the Times, what is clear is that she blames one very specific person for her downfall. Gillian has taken up writing a blog in which she rages about the unfairness of life and later about all the great sex she's having with Jake (more on him in a second). My favorite part is that the blog randomly has one follower who constantly berates Gillian but still continues reading the blog. The thing I love about Gillian and all her blog foolishness is how imperfect she is. Whitney G is great at writing characters who have issues and Gillian is one. Gillian is a denial artist who can't seem to get a handle on some of her own more destructive tendencies and I was 100% here for all of that foolishness.

And then there's Jake. Jake is CRAZY as all the crays. He is another Whitney G hero with a horrible attitude, a dirty mouth and stamina that will make you look at your own partner with suspicion. Jake has more issues than Vogue but as the book unfolds you learn that there really are valid reasons for all of Jake's shenanigans. Nothing is what it seems with Jake. He's a pilot and even though at times he seems like he's terrible at that, there's still a story there. Just be patient with Jake, you'll love him as much as Gillian did.

The relationship between these two characters is so thoroughly entertaining you don't want to put the book down. Like this is the kind of book you read and then hide in the closet when your kids are looking for you because you don't want to stop reading it. There is some drama built in because Gillian and Jake really aren't supposed to be having a relationship, we don't know what the deal with Gillian's lost job and we're waiting to find out why Jake is so dang crazy. There is some amazing sex and it's really sweet to watch the relationship develop between the couple.  OMG, I almost forgot how these two met! I apologize for almost overlooking that because honestly it was one of the most memorable meetings and initial hook ups you could EVER imagine. It's one of those things where you don't know whether to laugh or cover your eyes. In the end, I went with cracking up because it was hilarious.

I don't know what else to tell you. If you're still reading this review, you're wasting time that you could be reading this book and that's just not smart.
