Let's Talk About Love by Claire Kann

Let’s Talk About Love by Claire Kann is a book that follows an asexual main character and has a good balance of humour and serious events. It is honestly a shame that I have never seen a book out there like this one. I would say that this is both an excellent resource and an excellent story, perfect for those wanting to know more about asexuality.

Summary (from Goodreads):

Alice had her whole summer planned. Nonstop all-you-can-eat buffets while marathoning her favorite TV shows (best friends totally included) with the smallest dash of adulting—working at the library to pay her share of the rent. The only thing missing from her perfect plan? Her girlfriend (who ended things when Alice confessed she's asexual). Alice is done with dating—no thank you, do not pass go, stick a fork in her, done.

But then Alice meets Takumi and she can’t stop thinking about him or the rom com-grade romance feels she did not ask for (uncertainty, butterflies, and swoons, oh my!).

When her blissful summer takes an unexpected turn and Takumi becomes her knight with a shiny library-employee badge (close enough), Alice has to decide if she’s willing to risk their friendship for a love that might not be reciprocated—or understood.

Book Review: Let’s Talk About Love by Claire Kann

This book tells the story of a biromantic asexual college student figuring out her future. I don’t think I’ve ever read a book with an asexual main character, so this book was eye-opening for me. I adored the themes of friendship and how the main characters work in a library. Let’s Talk About Love tackles some serious topics, and I admired the fact that it is both cute and raises awareness.

❀ Amazing Main Character

Alice is such an amazing main character. She is independent and transforms so much throughout the book. Alice has a great sense of humour, and she has a great group of friends. Her relationships and her daily struggles are so realistic, making it easy to connect with her. I can’t honestly say if Alice’s asexuality is portrayed realistically, but it seemed believable to me.

❀ Light and Heavy

Let’s Talk About Love by Claire Kann is a book all about a biromantic asexual woman and is, I believe, the first of its kind. The story is both light and heavy, and the main character is relatable. I would definitely recommend this book, as it is a great resource.

    I am so glad the author took the time to educate the readers. I love learning stuff from books, and as I have no ACE friends, the only way for me to learn more is through media. Great review!

    I have to admit the cover for this one is what first drew my attention, it’s gorgeous, but now learning what it’s about, that it features an asexual heroine, I’m even more interested in reading it, a big part of my joy in reading, is finding stories about all different kinds of people.
