After being part of the blog blast for her first book, I’m delighted to participate in the blog blast for Laura Kay’s second book, Tell Me Everything – published by Quercus Books.

Would you entrust your life choices to someone hell-bent on avoiding theirs?
Natasha has everything under control, at least that’s what her clients think. As a therapist, she has all the answers but when it comes to her personal life, she seriously needs to start taking her own advice.
Still living with her ex-girlfriend, Natasha’s messy love life is made up of dates and one-night stands. After all, why would you commit to one person, when there is an endless stream of people waiting for you to swipe right? Besides, people always leave.
But when Margot arrives on the scene, everything changes. Flailing between mending long broken relationships and starting new ones, Natasha’s walking the line between self-actualisation and self-destruction… With denial no longer an option, it is time for Natasha to take control of her own happiness.
After her debut was one of my most anticipated reads of last year, I was excited when I saw Laura Kay had another book on the way and — though it took me a little longer to get into than The Split —- Tell Me Everything proved to be a good read.
She might try to help people’s problems at work but Natasha’s personal life is messy. As much as I love reading about people with cookie cutter perfect lives, it’s refreshing to read books with main characters like Natasha. Sometimes in the world we live in it’s nice to have a reminder that nobody — not even fictional characters— has it all figured out.
Much like her previous effort, The Split, relationships take centre stage in this book. I loved seeing the close twin bond depicted in this book as it reminded me just how grateful I am for my own twin. I also like how romantic relationships were dealt with, they’re messy and raw and real but there’s also something lovely about them.
I can’t say much more about this book (as I fear I might ‘tell you everything’) but what I will say is that it’s a gorgeous queer love story full of friendship, fun and the confusing but invigorating journey that is figuring yourself out.
