#BookReview: The Love Study (The Love Study, #1)by Kris Ripper

Synopsis: What happens when the search for the perfect date goes perfectly wrong?

Don’t miss this charming romantic comedy from critically acclaimed author Kris Ripper.

Declan has commitment issues. He’s been an office temp for literally years now, and his friends delight in telling people that he left his last boyfriend at the altar.

And that’s all true. But he’s starting to think it’s time to start working on his issues. Maybe.

When Declan meets Sidney—a popular nonbinary YouTuber with an advice show—an opportunity presents itself: as part of The Love Study, Declan will go on a series of dates arranged by Sidney and report back on how the date went in the next episode.

The dates are…sort of blah. It’s not Sidney’s fault; the folks participating are (mostly) great people, but there’s no chemistry there. Maybe Declan’s just broken.

Or maybe the problem is that the only person he’s feeling chemistry with is Sidney.


Rating: ⭐⭐
My Review: This one had a lot going for it but sadly it just didn't work.  The romance seemed off and forced.  I didn't care for the characters and the story just wasn't working at all. I stayed for the queer but just didn't care for the rest. 


"A sweet treat." -- Publishers Weekly

“With a deliciously dry sense of humor, great sensitivity, and a surfeit of well-defined characters... Ripper (The Queer and the Restless, 2016) has created a contemporary romance that thoughtfully explores the idea of trust while at the same time celebrating the important roles love and friendship play in life.” -- Booklist

"In a wry first-person voice, Ripper captures all the awkwardness of first dates.[...] Their many friends add to the fun in this dialogue-driven and warmly appealing romance." -- BookPage
