    "Persuasion" has always been my favourite Jane Austen novel, so when I saw there was a modern day/ m/m romance adaption, I didn't hesitate. And luckily, like "Out, Proud and Prejudiced", it was wonderful. There's just something about the idea of a second chance romance. And it was do...

    Gah! This was heartbreaking and emotional yet ultimately uplifting. I had a few quibbles (view spoiler)[I wish we got to hear from Finn a bit more. Even in his own POV - he didn't always express to the reader exactly what he was feeling or doing - with Liz in particular - which lea...

    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 ...

    He was beginning to wonder whether he'd ever forgotten him at all, whether the memories had just hidden beneath the glitter of his new life, whether he'd spent the past eight years staring straight ahead so as to not glimpse them out the corner of his eye. This was such a heartbreak...

    3.5 stars Perfect Day is my first Sally Malcolm novel and I did enjoy it. I liked the premise of the story and the principal characters, but I would have liked the novel more if they shared more page time together. I struggled with the too few glimpses of their halcyon summer, and v...

    First of all, Persuasion is my favorite novel from Jane Austen. Sense and Sensibility is a close second followed by Pride and Prejudice. When I read the blurb and found out that this was modern MM retelling of Persuasion?! Oh, yeah I bought it. I read it within an hour. I could not put...

    Disclaimer: I received a free electronic copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. Having never read the original Austen novel, Persuasion, this book is based on, I was a bit tentative when Malcolm reached out to me and asked for a review. However, she knew...

    ????? 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....

    A Joyfully Jay review. 4.75 stars Like it?s inspiration, Persuasion, Perfect Day is a story about second chances. Eight years is a long time to hold a grudge or to nurse a flame, and in eight years both Finn and Josh have grown and matured. What?s between them isn?t the ea...

    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...

    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...
