Mini Review: The Romantic Agenda by Claire Kann

Joy is in love with Malcolm
But Malcolm really likes Summer.
Summer is in love with love
And Fox is Summer’s ex-boyfriend.

Thirty, flirty, and asexual Joy is secretly in love with her best friend Malcolm, but she’s never been brave enough to say so. When he unexpectedly announces that he's met the love of his life—and no, it's not Joy—she's heartbroken. Malcolm invites her on a weekend getaway, and Joy decides it’s her last chance to show him exactly what he’s overlooking. But maybe Joy is the one missing something…or someone…and his name is Fox.

Fox sees a kindred spirit in Joy—and decides to help her. He proposes they pretend to fall for each other on the weekend trip to make Malcolm jealous. But spending time with Fox shows Joy what it’s like to not be the third wheel, and there’s no mistaking the way he makes her feel. Could Fox be the romantic partner she’s always deserved?

Mini Book Review:

I loved getting to see different asexual rep with Joy and Malcolm. The friendship between Malcolm and Joy really bothered me. I don't like dumping friends for relationships either. The fact that Joy got rapped up in this vacation because Malcolm's new girlfriend feels threaten by Joy was insane. It makes for an uncomfortable situation for everyone. Fox is my favorite character. He is a lot of fun and I enjoyed how Fox was taking the time to get to know Joy and how she operates. 

Favorite Quotes:

"How are we perfect and all wrong for each other at the same time?"

"The greatest love of his life was, as they put it, just a friend."

"Joy, Queen of laughing at her own jokes."
