    Amazingly atmospheric, and a wonderful slow burn (my favorite trope). Sweet and gentle, I loved Joshua. ...

    I've given this an A- at AAR, so that's 4.5 stars rounded up. Sally Malcolm?s first published m/m romance is a contemporary retelling of Jane Austen?s Persuasion (which regularly vies with Emma for first place in my ranking of Austen?s novels!) set in a sleepy New York seaside...

    This year might have had a lot of ups and downs, but so far it has also given me two queered Jane Austen retellings that have hit it out the park. This one, a reimaging of Austen?s Persuasion, was thoroughly enjoyable, emotionally enthralling, and damn entertaining. I?ve always ...

    This was fuckin? awful. I two starred it because the author can write, but everything about this was awful. It reminded me of an m/f from about 40 years ago. Finn?s the man, and josh is the woman. Plug?m right in. All the (self imposed) torture!! All the angst! All the sufferi...

    ????? AND ????? from me. The fact that I spent most of the story with that wet stuff in my eyes ? is irrelevant. This was a superb recreation of Jane Austen's Persuasion for us M/M addicts, so full of feels it sometimes hurt to read the story ?. ...

    Alfred Tennyson was such a fan of Austen's Persuasion, he famously exclaimed, "Show me the exact spot where Louisa Musgrove fell." I'll do Tennyson one better and shout, "Show me the exact spot where Liz almost drowned!" Who's Liz, you may ask? She's the woman Finn woos as reven...

    I loved this. I have a feeling this will end up on my Top 10 books of the year. This is a m/m retelling of Jane Austin's Persuasion. You do not have to have read that though to enjoy this. The author takes the bones of that story but modernizes it. The prologue starts in the past ...

    As this story started out, in my opinion, it was freaking *PERFECT*. One to give even Anyta Sunday a run for her money in the feels and slow burn department. I loved the MC's, I loved their story, and there wasn't a single thing that I would've changed. AND THEN THE RAINS CAME....

    I was going to whip up this really pretty review with graphics and squee my head off about how much I loved this book, how I devoured it but that shit takes time, y'know? And I'm chomping at the bit to get to "Love Around the Corner" so I'll leave this quote: Suddenly, all he wante...

    (Content notes: (view spoiler)[emotional and physical cheating, negative bi stereotypes (hide spoiler)] ) I love Jane Austen and Persuasion, so I had really high hopes for this book. Unfortunately, that just meant that it was even more hurtful for me, as a bisexual woman, that the stor...

    You know those books with characters who are perfect for each other, but life happens, time happens and then they get a second chance and it hurts your heart, but also makes you ridiculously happy? Yeah, that's this. ...

    This was enjoyable and cute. Especially if you are a Persuasion fan, which I am. It was fun reading how certain scenes and scenarios matched up with Persuasion. CAPTAIN WENTWORTH IS SO UNDERRATED! Was it the most amazing thing I?ve ever read? No. Is it a good lay by the pool read? Ye...

    -4.25 stars- ?This is the beginning, Josh. This is the beginning of everything for us.? But of course it wasn?t. It was the end. It was the last golden hour of the last perfect day.? What an amazing little gem that was! I?m very glad a friend recommended it or else i...

    A complimentary copy was provided in exchange for an honest review. This was an emotional story, so much more than I was expecting. Finn and Josh were truly in love and it was unfortunate that they found each other when they were so young and just starting their lives. Josh was scar...

    5 stars Modern m/m version of Persuasion! It's one of my favourite Austen novels and it's the ultimate second chance love story. This version captured everything I loved about Persuasion, and second chance romance in general. So beautifully written too. ...

    Ooh, I adored this story of second chances! Josh and Finn are young passionate lovers who plan to go away to California to start a new life together - Finn as an actor and Josh a concert violinist. But when the moment comes, Josh reneges and remains home with his dysfunctional family. ...

    Uh! Don't mind me, It is me not the book. I believe maybe MM contemporary is not my thing. The story is a retelling of Jane Austen's persuasion which i haven't read and i don't think i will. Maybe i will someday. Unnecessary miscommunication is my biggest pet peeves, and th...

    4.25 Stars Love doesn?t burn out just because the timing?s wrong. It stays. Even when you don?t want it to, even when you try to deny it, it stays. It grows. It never leaves. Perfect Day is a quick read and a second chance love story. It?s well-written with well-developed...

    *3,75 stars* This one left me a bit in a conundrum. I haven?t read the Jane Austin novel this was ?modeled? on. And I feel it might have helped me to enjoy this more. Not that I didn?t like it. Josh and Finn are sympathetic guys and the UST between them first class. At...

    Perfect Story With names like Josh and Finn you already know this story is going to be amazing. And it was. Every page kept me wanting more. Great characters and well written. Their lives may have taken a detour down different roads, but their love remained strong. Eventually they?...

    Well, this week?s read was a downright pleasure, folks. It wasn?t what I was expecting going in, yet I came out the other side thoroughly sated and filled with all the happiest of little sighs. Perfect Day by Sally Malcolm is a gender-bending retell of the classic Persuasion by Jan...

    *** 3.5 stars *** Persuasion is my least favorite of Austen's novels, so I wasn't sure what I was in for with this modern-day m/m retelling. I do love a good second-chance romance, though, so decided it was worth a try. There was an appropriate amount of suffering from the injuri...

    This book bills itself as a retelling of Jane Austin's Persuasion, but I don't remember Anne previously dating Sarah or Frederick having a line of boyfriends in his past. And this, folks, is a perfect example of pervasive and harmful heteronormativity. A true MM romance rendition of Au...

    ? 3.75 stars The first few chapters in the beginning are told with Now and Then, which I liked, but after about chapter 4 it stays in the now. The then being the beginning of Joshua and Finn's relationship and the now being 8 years after the relationship ended. 8 years where f...

    Fabulous, wonderful story! 5+ stars. This seems to be my year for reading books that retell stories by famous authors. Perfect Day is a modern retelling of Jane Austen's Persuasion and I LOVED it. I must confess that I've never read any of Jane Austen's books but this is the sec...
