Let's Talk About Love by Claire Kann

Rating: unrated  | Swoon Reads | Contemporary New Adult | Release Date: 1/23/2018 

Let's Talk About Love is an upbeat, modern romance-y novel that feels way more like millennial (Gen Z ?) women's fiction than like a true romance.

Alice loves a pleasing aesthetic, her best friends and herself--asexuality and all.  When she meets her new co-worker the sweet, generous and soon-to-be teacher Takumi she finds herself on a journey to balances her smoldering attraction with her identity as asexual.

I think I basically agree with Carrie's review on Smart Bitches, Trashy Books, this book has a lot of drama and angst that comes from characters not talking to each other but I also like following them around as they try to tackle this whole adulting thing.

Alice was recognizable as a young person today, she loves Tumblr, fandom, bingeing tv and making memories with her friends.

I personally had a hard time seeing this book as a romance because Takumi felt--to use a term Kat uses a lot--unknowable to me. Perhaps it's because I'm used to romances where we get into the other characters but he never felt like a real person to me. He was just a little too perfect.
