Confessions of a Chatterbox by Abigail Davies
Confession One: I was a self-confessed chatterbox.
Words were my best friend.
They loved me almost as much as I loved my pajamas and unwashed hair.
Confession Two: I hated outside people.
I was happiest sitting on my sofa, my favorite show in the background,
and my laptop open while I worked.
Being my own boss was freaking awesome.
So why the heck had I accepted this new teaching job on campus?
Going back to the sunny state was the last thing I wanted to do.
It was only meant to be for one day—one talk.
But life had a funny way at throwing you for a loop.
Confession Three: I was the best secret keeper.
It was ironic considering I never stopped talking.
But I’d do anything for my best friend.
Confession Four: I’d never met anyone like him.
He was different, but not in the way that everyone else viewed him.
He made my heart stutter and my breath catch.
But worst of all, he made my words disappear.

Review by Bubbles The Book Pimp
Second in the confessions series…
This is Ella’s story… she is Violet’s, the klutz from book 1 chatterbox blue haired cousin. I wouldn’t say this is a standalone because youd need to know and have met Jeremy and Jj from Book 1.
After moving from LA to new York after college, Ella is asked back by her old college to do a presentation on her business… Ella is a graphic designer, and has made herself an enjoyable and profitable business working for home. After being asked back to the college in a teaching capacity Ella has many decisions to make… firstly her cousin has just moved to NY, secondly her gay boyfriend relies on her to be his ‘cover’ and thirdly her gay boyfriends mom has Alzheimer’s and relies on Ella’s support… but Ella wants more… deciding to put herself first for a change she returns to LA for a semester of teaching to ‘see how things go’. It’s fate that she meets JJ and also fate that JJ and his dad are friends with her cousin Violet… but is it fate when she starts to fall for Jj?
this book was slow to start but I think that gave the reader a much better idea of who Ella was as a person. She was more than just a chatterbox. She was big hearted and caring and a generally likeable character. Her relationship with Jj was beautiful and original and wonderfully crafted and I loved seeing their relationship develop.
I loved that the author wrote a romance staring an autistic lead. I love that their story was realistic and beautiful and I love that the author wrote from experience and from the heart 💖💖💖
As someone who has experience of ASD personally it was wonderful to see the matter broached with such care and respect and understanding. I’m a proud momma bear who loves someone special, who happens to be autistic..and it takes knowing ( that ASD ) is such a small, teeny, tiny minuscule part of what makes that person so special to me…so a big big sloppy book pimping snog for a wonderful and original new read and a pretty outstanding author for writing this book.
My only grumble is a teeny tiny one… I needed an epilogue! I want to know more… guess I’m gonna have to wait ( not so patiently ) for Book 3 😈😈
