Review| The Comic Con – Dee Lagasse

My boyfriend is a major Marvel fan and comic fan and I have to say some of that has rubbed off on my since we’ve been together, haha. So when I saw The Comic Con I knew I had to read this one. The Comic Con releases today and it’s time for me to tell you about this book and what I thought!

A big thanks to the author and Wildfire Marketing Solutions for providing me with an e-arc to read and review.

Birdie Yamamoto has lived in a fantasy world for as long as she can remember.

When she was a young child, she buried herself in comic books. As a teenager, she created stories of her own. Now she has her dream job, as a series writer for Suffra-Jette — her very own comic.

Atticus Cohen has perfected the art of pretending to be someone he’s not.

The rising Hollywood actor lands the role of a lifetime – a lead in the latest big budget superhero movie: Suffra-Jette. The rigorous workouts, grueling schedule, and relentless press are all things he expects when he takes the job.

What he doesn’t expect is comic creator, Birdie Yamamoto, to have an opinion about everything he says or does.

When word spreads about the trouble on set, fans of the beloved comic begin to worry about the outcome of the movie.

Birdie and Atticus may not always be on the same page, but they both want the movie to succeed. So when Birdie’s best friend suggests they pretend to date to save the movie, they agree.

After all, it’s just a publicity stunt to spin the bad press.

…Until it isn’t anymore.

The Comic Con was so much fun! It had me laughing out loud and it hit me in all the feels. The pop culture references included in this story were perfect and I loved every one of them. This was my first book my Dee Lagasse, but it won’t be my last!

Birdie was such a fun character. She’s flawed, but she knows that. Birdie works hard and does what she can to make other people’s lives better. Even though her comic is being turned into a movie I love how down to earth she is. She’s vulnerable, but so strong at the same time! I now have a new favorite heroine!

Atticus was such a fun book boyfriend. While most movie stars tend to be very arrogant and full of themselves he couldn’t be more different. Even though he’s played in many movies he’s still nervous about meeting the creator behind the comic that started the movie he’s in. I even think he’s too sweet for his own good at times. He takes on everything and feels he needs to fix it all. Also, can I mention how sweet he is with his dog Parker? That was just so cute to see.

Even though The Comic Con starts off with some miscommunication and fake dating everything felt so genuine about these characters and their feelings for each other. I loved that when there was some drama it felt realistic and wasn’t unnecessary. The chemistry between these two characters jumped off of the page and they now have a special place in my heart.

Add some amazing side characters and this book became even better. I’m really excited for other characters to get their own stories. I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for more!
