99 Percent Mine

Crush: a strong and often short-lived infatuation, particularly for someone beyond your reach…

Darcy Barrett has undertaken a global survey of men. She’s travelled the world, and can categorically say that no one measures up to Tom Valeska, whose only flaw is that Darcy’s twin brother Jamie saw him first and claimed him forever as his best friend. Despite Darcy’s best efforts, Tom’s off limits and loyal to her brother, 99%. That’s the problem with finding her dream man at age eight and peaking in her photography career at age twenty—ever since, she’s had to learn to settle for good enough.
When Darcy and Jamie inherit a tumble-down cottage from their grandmother, they’re left with strict instructions to bring it back to its former glory and sell the property. Darcy plans to be in an aisle seat halfway across the ocean as soon as the renovations start, but before she can cut and run, she finds a familiar face on her porch: house-flipper extraordinaire Tom’s arrived, he’s bearing power tools, and he’s single for the first time in almost a decade.

Suddenly Darcy’s considering sticking around to make sure her twin doesn’t ruin the cottage’s inherent magic with his penchant for grey and chrome. She’s definitely not staying because of her new business partner’s tight t-shirts, or that perfect face that's inspiring her to pick up her camera again. Soon sparks are flying—and it’s not the faulty wiring. It turns out one percent of Tom’s heart might not be enough for Darcy anymore. This time around, she’s switching things up. She’s going to make Tom Valeska 99 percent hers.

My Review

I have seen the Hating Game around but this is the first time that I actually have tried a book by this author. I was wanting to read something that was a departure from by thrillers. Therefore, I picked up this book, not really sure what to expect. What I got was laughter, some romance, sass, and a new author that I want to read more books from. 

Darcy is my hero. Don't let her short hair or name fool you. She can kick your butt with both her tongue and fists. I say her tongue because she has quick comebacks filled with sarcasm that makes even the most macho of men quiver in their boots. Yet, this does not apply to Tom. That is because just the presence of him has Darcy tongue tied. 

Speaking of Tom. He has the patience of a saint. There were more than a couple of times that he could have lost his cool but he kept calm. I really liked the chemistry between Darcy and Tom. They were a good match. 99 Percent Mine is 100 Percent worth reading!
