***ARC received for an honest review***

“Lemons only suck if you let them. If you look hard enough, they might even be gold in disguise.”

Dawn L Chiletz is one of those authors that never fails to make me laugh, whether it is intentional or not and her portrayal of many a keyboard warrior that hides behind a screen is as hilarious as it is enlightening. But this book also has a deeper message and it is that, that really brings this book into its own. We all know an Angry Annie, but do you really know them?

“I’m sorry that I looked at a toad and didn’t see the royalty living inside it.”

We have all stumbled across those reviewers where everything they review is awful, they never have a nice word to say about anything and yet their reviews sometimes make you laugh, they make you cringe and yet they make you want to buy the product their slamming just so you can make up your own mind. Well, Annie is one of them. Her online persona precedes her, earning her the nickname ‘Angry Annie,’ her reviews are harsh but she has a cult following, but the bigger question is…who is Angry Annie?

Joslyn is a wannabe journalist, she has started from the bottom up at the magazine she works for and is now a fact checker, something she loves, but she knows that at the end of the day she has bigger aspirations. When Annie writes a critical review for her sister’s bakery that hasn’t even opened yet, Joss is angry herself. How can someone write such a horrible, negative review for a bakery that hasn’t even opened? Joss is on the war path and the anonymity of Angry Annie is her ‘in’ for a story, if she has her way, Angry Annie will be outed and her story told.

“Sometimes fear makes you run from the thing you need the most.”

Angry Annie is a romcom, as you can tell from the synopsis Annie has a hot neighbour that Joss comes across in her quest for the truth. But, Angry Annie is heavy on the laughs and light on the romance, however the balance for this kind of story was perfect. The romance was a necessary life lesson for Joss herself and critical to her growth as a character. One would assume the growth would come from Annie herself, but no, Joss is the one with the growing to do.

“I’m not the same girl I was a week ago and I’ll never be the same. Something has to give and this time it’s going to be me.”

Dawn L Chiletz always writes fantastic characters and Annie does not disappoint. As you would expect from her online persona she is rude, vulgar and incredibly insensitive and yet underneath that churlish exterior is somebody you would never have expected. First impressions are often the wrong ones and jumping to conclusions can often lead to heartbreak as Joss soon finds out.

“Every once in a while I get me a bag of lemons and a chance to use them. I live for the lemons.”

Angry Annie is a one of a kind, incredibly original romcom that will have you laughing out loud one minute and hiding behind your hands the next. The dialogue was on point, leaving your mouth gaping at times as many choice words go flying across the pages. With Annie’s shoot from the hip style and Joss’s inherent ability to screw everything up, you have romcom gold and the tears of laughter will accompany many a belly laugh. While I did tear up once for one particular emotional scene, the tears I shed were mainly from the side splitting scenarios that these characters always seem to find themselves in and with so many fantastic side characters there is something for everyone in this book. I adore this authors writing style and while this is incredibly different from her norm, it still entertained and I cannot wait to see what comes next from this author.

Dear Reader:

STOP. Don’t waste your time going any further. This book sucks like a plunger in a toilet bowl. I don’t know what to say about this woman’s lack of talent. I’d like to call her an author, but just because you put a bunch of words on paper doesn’t make you a writer. Heck, my cousin’s five-year-old granddaughter wrote a three-sentence story about pizza that’s better than this. Dawn . . . what kind of ’70s hippie name is that, anyway? People name their kid Dawn when they’re too lazy to think of a real name. I’ve always preferred dusk to Dawn and she’s reminded me why. Go watch TV instead. Save your money. You’re welcome.
