99 Percent Mine
Crush (n.): a strong and often short-lived infatuation, particularly for someone beyond your reach . . .
Darcy Barrett found her dream man at age eight - ever since, she's had to learn to settle for good enough. Having conducted a global survey of men, she can categorically say that no one measures up to Tom Valeska, whose only flaw is that he's her twin brother's best f...more
The immense healing power of a good romance can never be overstated. Granted, I am not really a trained reader of romance. Usually, whenever I stumble upon one, I'm left feeling dissatisfied with the quality of my enamorment. I think "oh, that was ridiculous" or "eh, that was lame”. With very few exceptions, I tend not to seek out adult contemporary ...more

“Maybe he’s 1 percent mine. That has to be enough.”
Sally Thorne’s long awaited and most anticipated sophomore release, 99 Percent Mine was truly a wild ride for me. I’ll be honest, it took me a while to warm up to this story and especially to this main character, but I ended up enjoying this one for the most part. But, sadly, it is no The Hating Game, or at least it wasn’t for me.
This story stars Darcy Barrett who i ...more
There goes my 2019 reading resolution, which was: only read what I'm genuinely interested in and no rating less than 3-stars.
But, fu fi fo fa, this. was. a. bust.
To say 99 Percent Mine was one of the most anticipated books for 2019 wouldn't be an exaggeration, which is perfectly understandable considering that Thorne's debut The Hating Game was such a hit. So, we hunkered down and marked off our calendars, with some of us wishing we could time-travel to the future.
The Hating Game by Sally Thorne was one of my favorite reads last year. I've read it multiple times and love it more every time I read it. When I saw this author was releasing another book, I was ecstatic. Let me start this by saying, this book wasn't like THG. I appreciate that this was so different. Tom was freaking perfect (for real) and Darcy grew on me. She wasn't my favorite from the start, but I ended up loving her by the end! Sally Throne's writing is phenomenal and she is m ...more
WE GOT AN EPILOGUE FOR THE HATING GAME I AM READY TO HAPPILY DIVE INTO MY GRAVE!
Thank god I enjoyed the shit out of this book. My goodness, my heart exploded a many a times!
Like everyone else, I was anticipating this book. I was
So, naturally, the pedestal her next book was going to be placed on was going to be high. We were blessed with Joshua and Lucy and we couldn’t get enough of ...more
review to come :(
IT'S FINALLY HAPPENING.
THERE'S A COVER! THERE'S A SYNOPSIS! EVERYTHING IS COMING TOGETHER!
Why didn't anyone TELL ME????
THE TITLE CHANGED. THE RELEASE DATE WAS PUSHED BACK. THERE IS NO LONGER A SYNOPSIS???
SOMEONE TELL ME WHAT'S HAPPENING OR AT THE VERY LEAST GIVE ME A PAPER BAG TO BREATHE INTO.
My feelings on this book, as told in The Office gifs.

Full review closer to release date. <3
I expected to love this, but sadly it was missing that special something.
Darcy Barrett has traveled the world since she was 18 years old. She never stays in one place too long and often supports herself as a bartender. She once had aspirations to be a photographer but pushed her career path aside after one bad experience. Running away is her coping mechanism.
When her beloved grandmother dies, she leaves Darcy, and her twin brother, Jamie, her cottage. Darcy and Jamie need to renovat ...more
“Friends and family are the only ones I have a chance of keeping forever. And that’s what I want. To keep you, forever.”
🌟 This book reminded me of why I stay away from romance books as much as possible. I am so picky when it comes to books I read in this genre but boy I was disappointed!
🌟 I have seen many disappointed reviews comparing this book to The Hating Game which is the author’s successful debut and I think it ...more
Sally Thorne is such a wonderful storyteller! She has woven together an emotional story guaranteed to tug at your heartstrings! I absolutely loved “The Hating Game,“ and when I picked this up I was expecting the same fun funny banter I got in that book.... I did get the same outstanding banter, however this book is a little darker, a little edgier, and a lot more angsty... this book definitely put my heart through the ringer! I ...more
There were moments while devouring Sally Thorne's newest book, 99 Percent Mine, where I would have been like Sheldon in the GIF above if only there were a paper bag handy.
OMG, did I love this book! It literally took every ounce of self-control I had (plus the recognition I had a few conference calls this morning) not to stay up late last night and finish the entire book in one sitting.
For as long as she can remember, life for Darcy Barrett has involved two people—her twin brother, Jamie, and th
Tom: Henry Cavill or Jared Padalecki
Darcy: Margot Robbie or Scarlett Johanson
Jamie: Ryan Gosling (think Crazy Stupid Love)
An interesting sophomore novel from one of the biggest and newest names in romance. Interesting being the operative word.
I didn't love this book nearly as much as I had anticipated. The premise was really promising and I liked the initial set up between the two main love interests.
However I found Darcy's personality to be wholly unlikable. It felt like Thorne was trying to make Darcy as dissimilar from Lucy in The Hating Gam ...more
Maybe he’s only 1 percent mine.
That has to be enough, I have to share.“
Darcy is a wild, fierce and freedom-loving girl who is in love with her twins best friend.
He’s her childhood best friend and also engaged to a wonderful woman.
Darcy is escaping her feelings by going on travels through different cou ...more
I tried to go into 99 PERCENT MINE with low expectations, despite my rabid fangirl boner, because I didn't want to shoot myself or this separate, unrelated, work in the foot. But I'm pretty sure that failed and either way it was a pointless exercise ...more
You'll be shocked but this is my first book from Sally Thorne , and yes I know it's crazy right?? I loved it a lot, it was sweet and intense!
I loved the slow burn and the connection between the characters.Both were unique and I adored them.Such an original characters. Darcy is strong and funny.Tom is a sweet guy.They have a great chemistry.
Overall, it was a cute and heartwarming story.
“’Cause I swear, I need your hands more than I’ve ever needed anything.”
I just finished. I was looking past the acknowledgments for the section titled "What to Do With All of Your Feelings." I can’t find it.
And I know what everyone is thinking...
Will 99 Percent Mine live up to the hype and perfection that is The Hating Game?
Is the hero Tom anything like Joshua?
Is that same delicious combustible tension between the MCs present??
I am here to report: YES. YES IT DOES. IT SO DOES.
No - Tom is n ...more
➳The hype of this novel is one that I was utterly surprised I did not take a part of. Do not get me wrong, it was a very sweet and the alpha side of Tom is one that I truly did enjoy. The possessive side of Darcy is also a point of view that I found endearing and so touching when dealing with her childhood friend whom throughout time she learned to love ...more
If I can just get Tom Valeska to lose his mind over me, I can die happy.
Alright. I have a confession to make before I dive into the review for this book.
I haven't read The Hating Game yet.
*pokes head back up*
Are you still judging me? Because quit it! I bought it immediately when I started this book, ok?! From this author's magical writing style, I can clearly see what I've been missing. But I digress here. What I'm going to be doing, is reviewing my very first Sally T ...more
There are moments in your life that truly define you as a person, moments that are far and few between but, when it happens, you just know it changes/changed you for the better. For me, dramatic as I am, I find it transcendent when I discover an author who can make me smile in the worst of times, who I will obsess and stalk and wait for in ...more
I was supposed to love this. I even lowered my expectations when it was a fail for the Book Fairy who sent it to me. Yet here I am, all . . . . .
Oh this poor thing. And I feel soooooo bad for Sally Thorne because that gal probably had no clue The Hating Game would take off like it did and sophomore novels are hard enough - I'm sure even more so following up one like that. But this book . . . .
It was just a mess. Like the female lea ...more
I LOVED The Hating Game. It's one of my favorite books but unfortunately I didn't liked this one... I took the blame 100% but please don't mind my rating, go and give a shot this book! Who knows, maybe you'll love it more than me. ;)
I really wish you love this book more than me. <3
"We sat outside and shared a joint, and it was a thrill. 'Don't tell your father! How'd I birth such a prude? It grows in the earth, for God's sake.'"
This book was such a joy, I honestly can't express that enough, but the simple fact that I've read this book twice in one month should sum that up clearly enough for you. In true Sally Thorne fashion, she has written the perfect book; with relatable, flawed and downright hilarious characters.

“I have a big imagination. Could you be more specific?” I put my hand on the side of his neck and stroke down to the hard bar of his collarbone. His skin is hot satin. His pulse nudges me.
Mine, mine, mine. One thousand percent mine until the end of time. He looks like he agrees.
“Everything you wanted or needed, I’d do it.” Amazing how he can keep it clean, but it feels so dirty. That’s the thing about good boys.
“I want and need a lot.”
A big white smile now. “No kidding. Well, I’m a hard worker.”
“I’m not telling you a damn thing,” I reply, because I know that’s what will annoy him the most. “I’ll tell you one day, when we’re eighty years old.”
