The Life Revamp is such an adorable story about finding your happy ever after even though it looks nothing like you’d expected. This third book in the wonderful Love Study series focuses on Mason, who is recovering from being left at the altar and who only wants to fall in love again, get married and live a traditional happily ever after life.
The Love Study series follows a college group of friends calling themselves ‘The Motherfuckers’, who is one of my absolute favorite literary found families. It was so good to be back in their world again! Each book in the series can be read as a standalone though as they all focuses on different persons from the group and their problems and relationships.
Mason was such a sweetheart, really trying to put himself out there after being left at the altar. But the hunt for happiness is beginning to pull him down and he’s almost given up on love when his friend Claris sets him up for a blind date with… her own husband! Apparently, Claris and her slightly famous fashion designer husband Diego have a polyamorous relationship and Claris is convinced that Diego and Mason will be a perfect match. Which they are. Everything sparks between them; the banter, the sex, the fiery eye contact across a crowded room. It’s just that Diego can never give Mason what he’s ever wanted: the traditional married happily ever after.
I loved the way Mason’s dream about a traditional married life was described without any irony or attempt to diminish how important this was for him, but at the same time showing how meaningful and loving relationship can come in many different shapes. And Diego and Claris just stole my heart from the very start! I loved their loving, respectful relationship where they allowed each other to be true to who they were and generously wising the very best for each other.
The writing style was very light, fast-paced and easy and the bickering between all characters made it such an enjoyable and fun read.
Compared to the previous books in the series it was perhaps not quite as gripping and or with the same depth, but all in all, it was a sweet and heartwarming story about finding love and being brave enough to accept it even though it doesn’t come in the shape you’ve dreamed about!
