Everyone knows Miz Poppy, the vibrant reviewer whose commentary brightens the New Orleans nightlife. But no one knows Hollyn, the real face behind the media star…or the fear that keeps her isolated. When her boss tells her she needs to add video to her blog or lose her job, she’s forced to rely on an unexpected source to help her face her fears.
When aspiring actor Jasper Deares finds out the shy woman who orders coffee every day is actually Miz Poppy, he realizes he has a golden opportunity to get the media attention his acting career needs. All he has to do is help Hollyn come out of her shell…and through their growing connection, finally find her voice.
A beautifully emotional new contemporary romance from New York Times and USA Today bestseller Roni Loren.
Colourful, charming, and uplifting!
Yes & I Love You is an enchanting, affecting tale that takes you into the lives of Hollyn Tate, a sassy, successful online blogger who struggles with face-to-face social interactions due to her anxiety over her Tourette symptoms, and Jasper Dears, a young barista by day, improv actor by night who is determined not to give up his dream but is in desperate need of a full-time job and some form of stability.
The prose is witty and light. The characters are self-conscious, flawed, and quirky. And the plot is a tender, delightful blend of friendship, family, introspection, courage, taking chances, new beginnings, and unconditional love.
Overall, Yes & I Love You is a compassionate, funny, heart-tugging tale by Loren with the sweetest storyline and an abundance of special characters you not only root for but totally fall in love with. This is the first novel in the Say Everything series and based on how much I adored this one, it would be an understatement to say I can’t wait to read the next one.
This novel is available now.
