A review of 99 Percent Mine by Sally Thorne

Fans of Sally Thorne's debut novel, The Hating Game, have been RABIDLY waiting for her second book for what feels like decades, but was actually three years. Her hilarious, galloping writing never lets the reader rest a beat between moments of chemistry-- it has a wonderful dizzying effect. Almost everyone I know has read The Hating Game at my insistence, and many of them simply and reverently refer to it as The Book. 

So I was nervous to read 99 Percent Mine. Could she keep up the breakneck pace? The unrelenting tension? The answer is yes, you guys, she can.

A set of adult twins hire their childhood best friend to renovate the cottage they inherited from their grandmother. Darcy Barrett and Tom Valeska have been dancing around each other for years, and here they are, forced into proximity, him in a tool belt, and her torn between never leaving his side and hopping on the next plane to anywhere. Sparks for days. It's hilarious, emotional, fun, and exactly as sexy as you want it to be.
