Release Blitz & Review: You've Got Fail - Celia Aaron

You've Got Fail
Author: Celia Aaron
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: December 26, 2017

I single-handedly built the hottest website for dating and relationship advice. 
Got a question? Scarlet Rocket can answer it for you. 
I was your modern day agony aunt with the solutions to all your pesky personal problems. The only issue? I was actually a man named Willis Halloran, not the female Scarlet Rocket. I thought my secret was safe. But then a sexy con artist calling herself Scarlet Rocket began showing up at society events, pretending to be me. I couldn’t let it go, so I tracked her down and confronted her. It went well … except for the part where she stole my wallet. Oh, and the part where she conned my agent into having us work together. And after that? Let’s just say she wound up stealing something much more valuable than my wallet or my [fake] name.

5 Stars
I have been dying to read You've Got Fail since before I even knew the book's title. The minute it was announced that Celia Aaron had a Contemporary Romance with a heaping pile of humor in the works I knew I had to have it. I got even more excited when I read the blurb and saw the cover...holy smokes is that cover model HOT. It promised humor, smut, romance, and an actual plot. Crazy, I know. 

"I'd worked for years to build my blog, and this imposter was schmoozing along on my hard work. Not cool."

With over-the-top characters, hilarious dialogue, panty-melting smut, and even a bit of mystery, Celia Aaron delivers a romantic comedy like no other. I really liked Willis, his POV was fantastic to read from, especially with all his nerdy anologies. I really appreciate when an author can get into the mind of a male character well and on top of that, this goes a step farther with Celia Aaron writing a male, Willis, who is writing as a female, Scarlet, for his blog. Then there's Scarlet Rocket herself, or rather a con artist pretending to be Scarlet for the money. These two are forced to work together, hoping this is the solution to fixing Willis' not-a-female problem and Scarlet's money problem. They shouldn't like one another, each using each other to get what they need, but the chemistry and attraction between them is too strong. From the moment they meet there are sparks and insults flying. It truly is laugh out loud funny. Sure, there were early moments I didn't get fully into the story, but as it was fleshed out and the characters developed further I became further hooked on this book.

"His eyes, the crooked glasses, the cute-as-all-hell t-shirt, and the man beanth it-all of it was like some sort of truth serum. But the truth wasn't my friend. In fact, I was allergic."

The premise of You've Got Fail is simple, but it lends itself to all of the secondary plotlines that really make this book so good. There's secondary character interactions that will literally make you fall off your chair from laughter, there is a slightly twisted suspense plot that makes you feel like you have to read as fast as possible, and of course, the romance isn't truly the main storyline. I really liked how the blog, as the basis of the book, really brought all these characters together to make it a complex story. 

"Hello Fire. I'm scarlet. I'd like to play with you for a while. Not like anyone could get burned,

If you love a laugh-out-loud funny book with an enticing game of cat-and-mouse between the hero and heroine, You've Got Fail is for you. It's a unique, standout story for 2017 and the perfect cherry to top of this year's sundae of books.
