"There's a fine line," author Oscar Levant once said, "between genius and insanity." In this fascinating first novel by GVR Corcillo, the heroine Lisa Flyte traverses that line in a high wire balancing act of breathtaking gracelessness.

Yeah, that's right; Lisa's kinda clumsy. She's also totally impulsive. She doesn't have much fashion sense, is apt to misread social cues and when it comes to dancing--Let's not even go there. You'll just have to read that scene for yourself.

Worst of all, despite being thin (relative, that is, to the plus-plus size she hit before going into a coma) and rich (due to a settlement from the Burger Barn where, after trying on wedding dresses, she was ordering her standard comfort meal of double everything when the drive-thru crashed down on her--hence the coma, and hence the weight loss), Lisa awakens to discover she still isn't happy. Why? Because she's afraid of fast cars, heights, big animals, how to dress, what people think of her--okay, just about everything.

So to "get brave" (and thus finally gain happiness), Lisa embarks on an extreme self improvement course comprised of tackling extreme sports in order to bolster her extremely low self esteem. Surely, Lisa reasons, if she can overcome her physical fears, emotional well-being will follow.

With this goal in mind (and with all the blundering stubbornness that characterizes this heroine) Lisa chases through the forest after Jack Hawkins (owner of "Into The Wild", a company which produces extreme sports gear) to convince him to help her. Despite major reservations, Jack agrees to let Lisa test a new line of "novice" equipment, thus spurring the physical action in the book forward at a frantic, tumbling pace.

Every once in a while there comes a book that grabs you from the first sentence and doesn't let go...until long after you've read it. A book that begs you to read it all in one sitting. A book, that at times, is so real - you wish you could jump into the story and live it. A book that you know you'll read several times. One that has found its place among your favorites.

This is that book.

She Likes it Rough is written in first-person, a common perspective lately in ChickLit books. Honestly, I've had my fill of that perspective. Not because it's overdone or it's the new fad. I'm over it because I don't feel like you get the whole story. You don't get everyone's thoughts, their feelings, their deepest darkest secrets. You get one point of view. One. And that doesn't usually work for me because I'm nebby. I want to know what everyone is thinking, what they're feeling, what their deepest darkest secrets are. I want to know what makes the love interest tick. I want to know the whole shebang.

By page two, I didn't even notice I was reading a first-person perspective. The author does a fantastic job of showing the reader everything they want to see. I could feel Jack's frustration with Lisa. I could feel his passion. I could feel his humor. I understood why he was the way he was. It was amazing.

Another thing I loved about the book? Lisa's voice. She's scatterbrained, she goes off on tangents, she's not afraid (despite what she thinks) of showing her fear, she questions herself. She's so real. I love that. I love that I could relate to her. She's funny, she has a heart of gold, people adore her, she loves animals, and yet she has no idea of her worth. So many women, I'm sure, can relate to that. We're so busy pleasing everyone else that we forget our own worth.

I really like how the lead character does and says all the things we all think. Except a lot funnier. The story starts off quickly, but once Lisa and Jack start working together I really got caught up in their relationship and in hoping things would work out for Lisa, since she really wants to be a better person - and find true love! I think people who like stories with romance, but also with humor and a good story will like this.

GVR delivers a hysterically fun romance. It's impossible not to read this book and not find yourself laughing-out-loud. The romance was sweet but the heroine's antics were the driving force for me. Lisa Flyte wants to make changes in her life, so she decides to take matters into her own hands. Jack Hawkins provides her with the perfect opportunity. He wants to test out his beginner hiking gear. The adventures that follow lead Lisa to develop better self awareness and a wonderful opportunity for romance. Fun, romantic and a wonderful adventure!

I was given a copy of "She Likes It Rough," by author Geralyn Corcillo. I owe the author a huge apology for not getting the book read in a timely manner and then posting my review. I have a million excuses, but none will make up for the fact that I fell through on getting it all taken care of. I sincerely, apologize for this mishap.

I actually started reading the book on April 6 and was finished by April 7. Granted it's 302 pages long, it was a fast read. When you have a book that has a great story, sometimes you just get swept up in the characters that you can't put the book down.

*****

In "She Likes It Rough," we find Lisa Flyte on a quest to improve her life. She has just recovered from a tragic accident that has now thrust her into the news and tabloids. Lisa is tired of all the horrible jokes that have left her emotionally scarred. She has discovered that of all people, her family has taken advantage of her in more that one way. She also can't trust many people to enter her circle of friends, that , well basically includes HER!

Taking the bull by the horns so to speak, Lisa decides that if she is going to make a change, she needs to change the most important aspect of her life...her. With that goal in mind, she has to open that hard exterior of a person she has become and allow one person in, Jack Hawkins.

She knows that the adrenaline junkie, action bound, athletic company owner, and all around hottie, is what she needs to overcome all her obstacles. Only problem is she has to convince this man that he is what she needs.

Struggling with discovering who she is capable of becoming and viewing herself in the eyes of others is not going to be easy.
