About Thank You for Sharing
This debut contemporary romance gives plenty of sexual chemistry and steam while also handling subjects like being a minority and sexism with sensitivity. The representation in this book is so meaningful.
Two seatmates on a plane find each other attractive but when Daniel tries to break the ice, Liyah realizes he’s the boy from summer camp who broke her trust and her heart. Upsetting enough but then Liyah and Daniel have to work together on a project critical to both their jobs.
My thoughts about Thank You for Sharing
I loved how the author called out so many problems/prejudices in a heartfelt way like code-switching at work when you’re one of two minority employees or dealing with people asking if you’re in the right place because of your skin color or last name.
The chemistry between Liyah and Daniel – so steamy but also tender. I like that Daniel listened and truly heard Liyah when she talked about her trauma and how he broke her trust. He was such a sunny cinnamon roll that I couldn’t help but root for him.
The support group they formed with coworkers was perfection. I wish I’d had one like this to ask questions and vent frustrations about work and my personal life. The care they showed for each other was touching.
I can’t wait to read more by Rachel Runya Katz!
