99 Percent Mine by Sally Thorne
Darcy Barrett has undertaken a global survey of men. She’s travelled the world and is sure that no one measures up to Tom Valeska—the man whose only flaw is his most loyal friend and Darcy’s twin brother Jamie. When Jamie and Tom met as children, Jamie claimed him as his best friend and left Darcy with only one percent of Tom's heart.
Now, Darcy and Jamie have inherited a rundown cottage from their grandmother, and they’re left with strict instructions to bring it back to its former glory and sell it. Darcy plans to be in an aisle seat halfway across the ocean as soon as the renovations start, but before she can run, a familiar face is on her porch: house-flipper extraordinaire Tom Valeska.
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 his handsome face.
Soon enough, one percent of Tom’s heart simply isn't enough for Darcy. This time around, she’s going to make Tom Valeska 99 percent hers.
Sally Thorne is back, and this time, she's written another comical and heartwarming romance.
Similar to The Hating Game, 99 Percent Mine features concise and vivid language; a fun and unique storyline; and a fantastic set of characters. Like her previous novel, the protagonists in her latest release are bold, outspoken, and delightful.
While the narrative is a bit predictable and corny at times, 99 Percent Mine is amusing and original. Nonetheless, Thorne's latest could've been a 5-star read if the characters and the setting developed and changed as the story progressed.
Regardless, 99 Percent Mine is a great pick for readers who are looking for a light and enjoyable read or even a quirky romance.
