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. (Goodreads)

99 Percent Mine by Sally Thorne was one of my most anticipated reads for this January, and I am SO thrilled to have read the book! I was a little late to the party for reading Sally’s previous book, The Hating Game, but I read it last December, and absolutely LOVED it, so I couldn’t wait to read this new book as well. 99 Percent Mine was SO good you guys!!

I am all about reading super cute books at the moment, and everything about this book was SO super cute. The characters were adorable, and the storyline was addictive and easy to follow, which made this the absolute perfect book that I needed in my life right now.

The main character, Darcy, was so interesting. I wish there had been a bit more information the book about her travels over the years, as I was super curious about all the things she had seen and places she had been. It’s so interesting! I definitely related to her a few times throughout the story as well. Tom, the love interest in the story, was definitely the perfect man, even though he totally hated to be called that. The relationship between the two was super cute, and I enjoyed watching the romance build up and blossom between them as the story went along. The chemistry between the two was absolutely perfect.

And as I mentioned above, the storyline for this book was so cute. I love the storyline when the characters knew each other before, but had drifted apart, and are suddenly reunited. It definitely makes for an addictive read, and whenever I had a moment to sit down to read, I flew through the pages. I basically loved everything about it. (I also want to add that Sally is SO great at building tension. Seriously, so great!)

Overall; Sally Thorne has another hit on her hands with 99 Percent Mine! I really enjoyed everything about this story, and if you loved The Hating Game, I think you will like it as well. And, if you haven’t yet checked out either of these books, and you’re a fan of cute romances, I do recommend both 99 Percent Mine AND The Hating Game! I hope you love them both just as much as I did.
