By: Mika Jolie
5 out of 5 stars
The story Explicitly Yours: A Platonically Complicated Novela by Mika Jolie is a romantic comedy. This is a story that is amazing and that I loved reading. This is an author that knows how to write a book that has you captivated from the first chapter and I found myself reading it in one sitting. In this story, you find Coriander and her fiancé about to be married. I love this couple. I loved reading how they interact and there is no denying that their love for each other is strong. This couple experiences the nervousness and anxiety that comes along with getting married and also Coriander finds herself visiting with her parents who she has not seen in quite some time. With their wedding just days away how would this couple react if a surprise catches them off guard? This is a story that had me laughing one minute and then misty-eyed in another. It is a heartwarming story that I didn’t want to end. There are plenty of other characters that are friends and family of the bride and groom that I loved reading about. A few of them are the reason that this book is so hilarious. This story does have mature situations which include some steamy love scenes. This couple’s passion for each other is undeniable and red hot. It would be recommended for those 18 years of age or older.
Years and years of platonic relationship had finally took up a notch and now they couldn't wait to make it official. But there's one thing that they couldn't agreed on, a crucial decision that they had to bear responsibility for the rest of their lives. A responsibility that Dean was scared to even think about. Everything was running smoothly until they finally realize what they were getting into. It's five days before their wedding.... is Dean really ready to settle down amidst his fears?
A few months ago, I met Cori and Dean in The Boyfriend and fell in love with the reformed player. There's something about guys who admit their insecurities and mishaps and failures and dreams. That something was what drawn me to Dean.
In Explicitly Yours, the same annoying yet charming narrative greeted me, Dean airing his dirty laundry while admiring his fiance's physique. Other readers may find him obnoxious and egotistical - me, I found him honest, adorable, tolerable self-centered macho who's got stars and hearts in his eyes. Cori was lucky to have him.
And oh, don't remind me of those hot and heavy scenes that happened between the couple. I'm telling you, I couldn't handle the heat! Whew!
Anyway, I love how Cori and Dean grew as mature and responsible adults. I love how they got a very strong support system, too. I just wish the other characters were given more spotlight, but maybe, they'll be having their own books soon, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
Once again, Mika Jolie turned me into a mushy, giggly hopeless romantic overnight. She always knows how to make my day right. She always knows how to tell an honest-to-goodness story without making me sleepy. I would read everything this author writes and I will never get tired of her writing. That's how much I love Mika Jolie!
This book follows the couple after their engagement at the end of The Boy Friend. But for those of you thinking it's just a brief epilogue. You're wrong. There is SO much more in this book and you won't want to miss it.
Told from alternating points of view, it's really wonderful how you are able to get both Dean and Cori's perspectives about the upcoming wedding and all the events surrounding it. Dean's family, their mutual friends and Cori's previously absent parents, make appearances throughout the book. I was incredibly happy to see their inclusion, as they all played such a critical role in how Dean and Cori's relationship developed. They are also wonderful characters.
Dean and Cori experience moments of both glee and panic when considering their impending nuptials. They worry about their futures and about whether things are happening too quickly for them. They deal with unexpected issues and figure out how to cope and compromise. And then they have the *hottest* make up sessions.
There was not one moment during this book when I wasn't overwhelmed with emotions. There were times when I was laughing hysterically. At some points I was cringing- not from the writing, of course, but due to certain events in the story. And then there were many points throughout the book when I was crying- in joy, in sadness and just because I was experiencing such an absolute glut of feelings.
If you loved The Boy Friend, you can not miss this follow-up. And if you haven't read The Boy Friend. Well, what are you waiting for?
