Hurt is a comedy of sorts, based on lack of communication between Jamie and her girlfriend Nicole. Jamie wants to surprise Nicole with a marriage proposal but goes about it all wrong, and keeps getting caught by her girlfriend in compromising positions.
This is not Lila Bruce’s best but it’s nice, and Hope Newhouse’s narration makes it very sweet (and brings my rating up from 3* when I first read this book to 4*). Both MCs are adorable and sexy, the secondary cast – Jamie’s colleagues, Nicole’s best friend, the neighbour… – adds fun and great lines. Jamie’s obsession with Johnny Cash is cringe-making in a hilarious way, and Nicole’s insecurities feel genuine.
Very enjoyable. And it deserves a better cover.
