REVIEW: LEASE ON LOVE by FALON BALLARD

To read the book synopsis, follow on of the following links to The StoryGraph or Goodreads.

Lease on Love marks the last time I will allow myself to start a new book at 10:30pm. I stayed up until 2:30am and forced myself to get some rest so I wouldn’t feel dead on my feet the next day, then finished the book in the afternoon that same day. It was a hilarious ride with a wonderful cast of characters, and I have no regrets on how tired I felt afterward.

My favorite part of this book was the cast of characters and how close they all were. The friendships were unlike anything I’ve ever read! Living in NYC, they all lean on each other for the support that people in small towns get from their immediately family. They all felt like family, and I was just as invested in the side characters as I was the protagonist. It embodied true friendship in your 20’s and I found myself wishing I was in this group.

From start to end, the book takes place over about 18 months, and I thought the pacing of it was mostly realistic and perfectly executed. A lot happens in the under 350 pages, and that’s the kind of book that I love! Something that will leave me thinking about it for a long time without taking a ton of my time. The main character experiences a lot of growth throughout the story, and I loved being able to witness it firsthand.

Overall, this was a solid, solid debut from Falon Ballard and I cannot wait to read more from her! If you would like to purchase this book, please consider using my affiliate link to either Amazon or Bookshop.org. These give me a small commission at no cost to you.
