Review: Don't Stop Me Now by Colleen Coleman

Don't Stop Me Now by Colleen Coleman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Need a laugh-out-loud, light read with a fabulously flawed girl just trying to make it after 10 years with her nose in a book - life all planned out and then it explodes on her?  This is definitely the choice for you!  Perfect for that pick me up.  I came, I laughed, I read. You should too.

Bookouture can really do no wrong for me. I have yet to pick up any type of book from them that I didn't just love! And this book is no exception. Touted as a rom-com, it feels more like a coming of age contemporary novel. Filled with laugh out loud moments, it touches on what happens when your best laid plans fall apart unexpectedly and you're pushed completely out of your comfort zone.

Poppy has spent the majority of her life in school, prepping herself for a future with her boyfriend, Gregory, and a career in psychology with a research job at her university. She has done everything expected of her to lead her to this goal. Her best friend, Hannah, along with Gregory, make the perfect threesome to move forward in their single minded goals. First in her class, her mentor encouraging her the whole way, what could possibly go wrong? Everything! Not only does she not get the job offer, Gregory breaks up with her and Hannah betrays her by sleeping with and then starting a relationship with him. And that's only the beginning. Now she's back living at home trying to navigate her life. It turns out, change can be a good thing and if you just put yourself out there, who knows what (or who) will land at your feet.

I truly enjoyed this entire novel. Second chances, unexpected friendships and love - life coming at you from all sides. How would you handle your life being turned upside down? Poppy certainly doesn't do it gracefully, but she does do it humanly and for that, I fell in love with her.
