Part of Your World by Abby Jimenez

Rating: 5 of 5 stars 
Pages: 400 pages
Published: April 2022

Part of Your World by Abby Jimenez is a romcom with substance! This book offers a lot to its readers: romance, comedy, drama all wrapped up in a heartfelt blanket. The main character, Alexis Montgomery meets total opposite Daniel Grant by happenstance, and there’s immediate chemistry between them. However, Abby is not interested in getting into any type of relationship while in the midst of trying to get out of a very toxic one. Struggling with ending a relationship and a domineering and intimidating family creates a lot of stress for Alexis and we as the reader are along for the emotional roller coaster. 

I wouldn’t consider myself a big romance fan, but I found this story to be very intriguing. The characters were complex, some even reminding me of characters from Grey’s Anatomy. The thing I enjoyed most about this book was while the romance storyline was predictable, there were also some important themes including domestic abuse, emotional intimidation and sexism that were addressed carefully without making the overall book too dark. Additionally, Jimenez has a talent for humor. It can be difficult to convey via the written word, but she pulled it off well! 

Recommendation: I really enjoyed this book and would definitely read another book by this author. I would absolutely love a second book that follows the story of the main characters as well as some of the secondary characters that I didn’t get to learn as much. If you’re looking for something not-too-light and not-too-heavy, this may be just the book for you! 

Until next time ... Read on!

Regardless of whether I purchase a book, borrow a book, or receive a book in exchange for review, my ultimate goal is to be honest, fair, and constructive. I hope you've found this review helpful.
