#AWKAP is LIVE!!! Who’s ready for Yara and David?
Yara Phillips is a wandering muse.
She dates men who need her, but always moves on to something new, never staying in one place for very long.
David Lisey is in need of a muse.
A talented musician lacking lyrical inspiration. When he first sees her, he knows he’s found what he’s been looking for.
Yara believes she can give David exactly what he needs to reach his full potential:
A broken heart.
David’s religion is love.
Yara’s religion is heartache.
Neither is willing to surrender, but religion always requires sacrifice.
Roxie and Jen’s Review
When we heard that Tarryn Fisher would be returning to her roots with a romance novel, we were beyond thrilled. We were intrigued by her brilliant cover, the catchy title, and early buzz indicating she’d be giving us a love story. SOLD!!
What can you say about a Tarryn Fisher book without spoiling any of it? You know you’re in for an emotional roller coaster, but you are never sure what her evil mind will deliver.
We meet Yara—a nonbeliever of love who never settled on one place for too long. She’s always a muse but never truly commits herself to a relationship.
“I’d come to Seattle to focus on myself, to embrace aloneness, and I had done just that. It was almost time to go home.”
Thanks to a splinter and her job as a bartender, she meets David. A musician who’s words are as beautiful as he is. He’s looking for a muse and discovers that and more in Yara. From their first meeting, there is a connection so powerful, neither of them can deny their feelings for one another.
“I”m on the verge of something and I need your help.”
“A coincidence,” I said.
“Be my muse.”
“You’d have to fall in love with me. Have you ever been in love?”
But with Yara’s fears and insecurities and David’s charisma that has women drawn to him, Yara can’t seem to trust that her heart won’t be broken.
“We’re precise chemistry, Yara. We’re so good this feels like a dream. I want to marry the shit out of you.”
As with the Love Me With Lies series, you can’t deny that Tarryn has some mad writing skills. Her words are poetic and wrap around your heart. The angst is off the charts and there were times we had tears and needed to stop to discuss what had transpired all while breathing into a paper bag.
There were so many things we loved about AWKAP, but we just had a few issues. Certain parts felt recycled to us and we felt a little déjà vu from her previous work going on. This didn’t take away from the story and most of her fans will love this feeling.
Tarryn Fisher writes out of the box and loves to push our limits with her originality and flawed characters. AWKAP was no different. She gave us a unique love story that took us on an intense and consuming journey that made us feel ALL THE FEELS. And when we read the final page, we wanted more. We needed more…..
Yara’s Yesterday Spotify List
The bands in London, November 12th. Want to catch up?
So casual. So nonchalant. You’d think we were only acquaintances, that we’d once sipped a couple of beers together instead of tattooing love on our skin and reciting marriage vows. I read the e-mail again and analyze the shit out of it. How can I not? I count out the words: thirteen. The punctuation: four. His name, my name. A flippant, casual turn of phrase: catch up. In the end, there’s only so much psychoanalyzing you can do to a thirteen-word e-mail. I move on with my life, feeling rather pathetic. But not before I e-mail him back. And okay, sure, I don’t move on with my life. What does that even entail? Forgetting? Forgiving? Being happy? Besides, I know what he wants to talk about. I know why he’s coming.
Yeah, sounds good. Let me know when and where.
My e-mail is a word shorter.
I’m that petty.
