Review: Some Sort Of Happy by Melanie Harlow

Thursday, January 14, 2016


I almost didn’t believe it was him. 

In high school, Sebastian Pryce had been an aloof outsider who kept to himself. But now, ten years, later he’s back and unusually attractive. With muscle in all the right places and hands that know exactly what they’re doing, Sebastian is everything I didn’t know I needed. And while he isn’t exactly friendly, he has a magnetism that draws me in. 
He pulls away, afraid he’ll break me.
Until the night I demanded more—and he gave it. 
Were we just two lost, lonely people seeking solace? 
Or could a disgraced reality TV star and a flawed, frustrating man actually find some sort of happy together?
** SOME SORT OF HAPPY is a full-length standalone romance. **

My Review

Some Sort Of Happy was my first book by this author. I am so glad that I finally picked this book up from my TBR pile. It was exactly what I needed. This is the first book I've ever read where one of the characters had to deal with OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) . I feel like it was so insightful and eye opening to be able to read things in Sebastian's point of view. It let the reader understand his anxiety and his fears and know why they were there. Although there were times in which his character frustrated me, at the end of the day I just had to take a moment to think about why he was the way he was and why he saw things a little differently than people usually did.

Skylar was so sweet and supportive of Sebastian and it was something I really enjoyed reading. She tried her best to understand his breakdowns and to avoid doing something that might trigger him. I loved the friendship they developed just as much as I loved their relationship. I loved Some Sort of Happy. It had a different touch from the other books- it was refreshing and a beautiful read. Though this was  my first read by Melanie Harlow, it definitely won't be my last! I will be looking forward to her future works in and out of this series.
