Review ~ You've Got Fail by Celia Aaron

Title: You've Got Fail
Author: Celia Aaron
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: December 26, 2017

I single-handedly built the hottest website for dating and relationship advice. Got a question? Scarlet Rocket can answer it for you. I was your modern day agony aunt with the solutions to all your pesky personal problems. The only issue? I was actually a man named Willis Halloran, not the female Scarlet Rocket. I thought my secret was safe. But then a sexy con artist calling herself Scarlet Rocket began showing up at society events, pretending to be me. I couldn’t let it go, so I tracked her down and confronted her. It went well … except for the part where she stole my wallet. Oh, and the part where she conned my agent into having us work together. And after that? Let’s just say she wound up stealing something much more valuable than my wallet or my [fake] name.

My Opinion

I'm not sure what to make of this book. It was the idea that caught my attention; I liked the sound of the blurb enough to take a chance in this author. However, I'm torn as to whether or not I liked it. 

What I liked most about this book was the premise. I thought it was interesting and a little different to things I've read before. The guy being the blogger and then having a women pretend to be his online persona of Scarlett Rocket had a lot of potential, especially when the woman is a thief. 

Moreover, I also liked their meeting. This book started off strong and I had high hopes. 

Sadly, the issue that has split my opinion so much is the characters. I just didn't feel any chemistry between them. If I'm completely honest, their relationship started to bore me as the book went on. I continued to read as I wanted to see how the other plot strands were tied up, but it wasn't because of the romance. I wish there had been sparks and chemistry; I wanted to like Willis and Scarlett, but I just felt something was missing. Considering this book is mostly a romance, without that spark it was a bit of a let down. 

Overall, I think I'm on the fence about this read. The premise was good but the romance was only okay.
