Review: Feisty by Julia Kent

I’m not too proud to admit that finding Mr. Right involves swiping right. Right? Welcome to dating in avocado toastland.

Here I am, on my first blind date, ever, courtesy of a smartphone app and my two annoying best friends.

So what is Chris “Fletch” Fletcher doing, walking across the room, looking at his phone like he’s pattern matching a picture to fined a real person he’s never met before?


Oh, no.

The guy I drop-kicked in seventh grade cannot be my blind date. The guy who earned me this infernal nickname.

That’s right.


More from New York Times bestselling author Julia Kent as Fiona “Feisty” Gaskill gets her chance at love – drop-kick included.

I haven’t read very many Julia Kent books but I have read the prequel and the first two books in this series of standalones (with interconnecting characters). While you don’t have to read Little Miss Perfect (Prequel), Fluffy (Mallory’s book – Book 1), or Perky (Book 2). I highly recommend doing so. A few things are mentioned in Feisty but none are relevant to the story, it just makes this story even more fun. The premise of Feisty is this: Fiona, a kickboxing preschool teacher, kicks butt when her class is attacked. The paramedic is her archrival from middle-school who gave her her hated nickname (Feisty) when she drop-kicked him in middle school. The range of emotions that Julie Kent evokes in Feisty is surreal – from fear to trauma to healing. Fiona’s journey of reconciling her past self with her current identity is one that felt real. And along the way Fletch keeps showing up. While emotional, Feisty is also hilarious! If you’re looking for a romantic comedy than runs through the emotional gamut, then look no further. Feisty is the book for you. This is my favorite of this whole series.

I received this book for free. This is my honest and voluntary review.

Favorite Quotes:

  • When someone else decides your identity out of spite, it sucks.
  • “You’re a hero!” “I’m a wreck.” “You can be both.”
  • Alas, I am mortal, and oxygen is a must.
  • Some minutes are longer than others. We think of time as an objective measure of space, but maybe it’s not. Maybe it’s more fluid. Maybe emotion turns it into taffy, something we can stretch and compress.
  • We’re still thirteen when we’re around our parents.
  • It takes effort to make someone be unimportant.
  • You need to find the edges. Find your perimeter.
  • Self-awareness is a double-edge sword.
  • Avoidance uses plenty of energy. More than we think.
  • His lips are ward and wet and the way he touches me makes me feel like we’ve met before, as if splintered pieces of past lives have assembled themselves into the souls we are now, and we’re hugging hello, reacquainting ourselves with a deeper love that transports across time.
