My off-the-cuff idea might not be so terrible. We get along as friends. She’s really romantically cautious, which I find heartbreaking. She deserves someone to laugh with. She’s kind. And calm. And gorgeous. A couple of years with her actually sounds pretty good. If some of Pari’s kindness and calm rubs off on me, that’d be a bonus, because I’m a mess—anorexia is not a pretty word—and my little ways of keeping control of myself, of the world, aren’t working anymore.
And if I slip up, Pari will see my cracks. Then I’ll crack. Which means I gotta get out, quick, before I fall in love with my wife.

People of color and people with mental illnesses are not often represented in mainstream romance. That both are active parts of this story is a reason to celebrate. A well-written novel, both sexy and romantic, with broad and inclusive representation.Read Full Review of Far From Home | See more reviews from Kirkus
