Hollyn Tate is a popular entertainment reviewer in New Orleans who writes under the pseudonym Miz Poppy. As a writer, she is smart, insightful and a bit snarky but in life, she keeps to herself. The social anxiety she suffers from is a result of having Tourette syndrome. Jasper Deares, a struggling actor/improv performer takes a job as a barista in the office where Hollyn works. After an awkward first meeting, a friendship starts to develop. Hollyn is attracted to Jasper but believes he is way out of her league. But Jasper has his own struggles too, they are just not visible as are Hollyn’s. And he is drawn to Hollyn. When told by her boss that she will need to produce a video version of her column, Hollyn is mortified but Jasper offers to help prepare her. Jasper, in turn, is trying to get more exposure for his improv group and once he discovers that Hollyn is the influential Miz Poppy, he believes a positive review from her can make all the difference.
Yes & I Love You is a sweet book with humor and warmth and lots of charming and witty banter. There is enough steaminess to be a warning for younger readers or if you don’t wish to read anything explicit.
Fans of rom-com novels should love this book and if you are not a normal reader of the genre, this might be a perfect book to read when you need a break from heavier books.
