Book Review: She Likes It Rough by GVR Corcillo
First Place: Humor/Satire
First Place: Indie
Where do I begin my review of “She Likes It Rough” by GVR Corcillo? Well, I am not quite sure how to deliver my thoughts because I move than loved this book, I can honestly say that I am IN LOVE with this book. I am so glad I had the chance to review it.
Lisa Flyte is now awake from her coma. She wakes up thinner than she was before Burger Barn came crumbling down on top of her in the drive thru. A freak accident indeed; landed her right on the front page of the tabloids and everyone knows Lisa’s name. Skinny, famous and rich, Lisa now has to put meaning to her life. She is determined to make it count. Crippled with a lame family, millions of dollars and tabloid fame; Lisa needs to get a backbone for sure and not only make her life count but make her voice heard.
The book starts off with Lisa stalking her classmate, the brave Jack Hawkins. Lisa knows for sure that Jack is the answer to becoming brave. Lisa is sure that Jack needs some of her millions to invest in his company in exchange to help her overcome her fear (of life) and make her brave. Crap starts happening right away as the story takes off.
From the start, I was really anticipating boredom. Boredom never came. Instead, from the first chapter, I laughed so hard I cried. Lisa’s character is the narrator and her personality comes out a little at a time, almost like she is talking so fast to make sure to get enough of herself in so the reader will understand. The way it is all put together, it just flows perfectly. I can’t see it being better any other way. Everything that happens to Lisa is just over the top and a character I can see Cameron Diaz playing on the big screen. Yes, Lisa Flyte is outrageous and can sometimes be that girl that you just want to shake and tell her to get it together but when it comes down to it, there is no other way that Lisa can be portrayed. Brilliant!
“She Likes It Rough” by GVR Corcillo is the most hysterical book I have read yet by an indie author. Not to mention the romance was not achieved easily and I appreciated this more than anything. Corcillo gets five big shiny stars and my hopes for her are to get this book into the hands of a director who can put this chick lit story on the big screen. I see nothing less for this novel and highly recommend “She Likes It Rough” to chick lit lovers everywhere!
