So, with all those positives, why not a perfect rating, you ask? Well…There were times that I really wanted to reach through my Kindle and smack the crap out of Dilly. I just wanted to shake her until she told Oscar the truth. I mean, he never showed ANY indication that he’d be anything less than supportive and helpful, and the fact that she missed multiple opportunities to come clean with him really irked me after a while. But, even with that said, I understood why she was reluctant to say anything to anyone, and after you’ve maintained a lie as long as Dilly had, coming clean probably just wouldn’t feel natural, so I cut her some slack.
Minor gripe notwithstanding, The Good Guy on My Porch is a solid slow-burn, friends-to-lovers romance that tackles the topic of mental illness in a delicate-yet-realistic way. Overall, it’s a highly 1-clickable read.
Does this book contribute to or help crush the romance stigma?
It’s stigma-free. No rehab needed.
