Raphael Augustine had cut all ties to his parents when his dad disowned Gabe for being gay, that had been ten years ago he could he never looked back. He was a comedian and worked every job his agent found him in or out of state. When Daisy returned his silk black shirt, he offered her a drink but soon the police were pounding on his door........
Sylvia Fox tells a great story about two people that just couldn't their timing right to fall in love.
I vowed to be model thin in my next life. This incarnation had too many cupcakes to sample.
“It’s not a bad thing that you think I’m attractive,” he said. My whole body fizzed with nerves. Maybe it was adrenaline. I could have run to the coliseum and back without getting winded. I was imagining how I would do that in gold strappy sandals when Raphael spoke again. “I think you’re cute too.”
This story was refreshingly real for me. The characters are flawed, confused, and a selfish mess, yet well-meaning and still basically good people, who I would be interested in knowing. Their attempts to have a relationship were thwarted by one calamity after another. Their difficulties actually should not have been so humorous, yet somehow, they always were. I found these characters to be intriguing, yet highly probable. The story was well written and easy to follow, and cringe-worthy at times, but always delightfully so. The steamy sensual scenes were also surprisingly believable, as well as tasty. I enjoyed the tale and was sad for it to end.
Don't Judge Me has an unconventional heroine and a most unlikely hero. Both of them have many flaws and don't fall in love instantly like most romance characters. After reading too many romance novels with the same plots and stereotypes, I find this novel really refreshing. The characters are different, unconventional, and far from being perfect people. It's this lack of perfection what makes me feel for them. This novel is written in the first person, narrated by Daisy and Raphael. I think this is a very good tool to convey their feelings and the difficulties they come accross. This is a novel about judgement (judging yourself, being judged by the others) and also about changing your life and deciding what's best for you. If you want a different kind of romance, unconventional characters and their real voices, Don't Judge Me is for you.
I found some of the language used was nearing racist and that put me off. I don’t need told every other sentence that someone is Korean and the stereotypical traits of this. I don’t understand why the author felt the need to ram it down my throat constantly.
The cover insinuates it’s going to be a hot read, but then the content didn’t match up.
The story was a slow burner. I don’t mind a book where the story gradually builds but usually the scene is being set. This book dragged its heels and I felt it never really got going.
The lay out of the book was good and the author was proficient at describing situations and characters, but I didn’t think the author made full use of the characters she had written.
I’m being generous awarding this 3*

The story opens with Daisy Fletcher trying to talk her best friend into going out...to a gay bar...for research! I knew this was going to be a recipe for disaster or hilarity. And, except for a few glitches, "Don't Judge Me" by Sylvie Fox was a very humorous story that kept me entertained for hours. Let's see...a prim and proper, Ivy-league educated woman who makes a living selling sexual fantasies as an "adult-only-site" webmaster. Check. Best friend since childhood, "Doctor" Nari Yoon, a gorgeous Korean woman very vocal with her displeasure of Daisy's career but unwilling to rock her own boat where HER parents are concerned. Check. (Can we say 'pot-versus-kettle'?) A potential lover who Daisy initially thought was gay (she did meet him in a gay bar after all), comedian who has an unfortunate habit of putting his pickle on the wrong plate and getting arrested. Check. From gay bar research to porn...um...I mean adult film producer, Daisy's life was spiraling hilariously out of control and she carried me along for the ride. Good trip. I always did like the scenic route.
