The Love Con Seressia Glass
The Love Con by Seressia Glass
Seressia Glass has woven a beautiful story to tantalize nerds, fan girls/boys, and all that fall in the realm of fanatics in The Love Con. *Sighs in Marvel*
The Love Con is most definitely a contemporary romance that warms the heart and livens the spirit. It’s about Kenya Davenport, a total engineering badass. She has been a cosplayer for years and kills it with her ideas and crafting costume skills. Kenya is in the middle of the finals of a big reality show for cosplayers with the winners getting $100,000 prize along with costume designing opportunities. Our girl has made it to the final two and for the last part of the competition, she has to make not one, but TWO costumes as well as recruit a bestie-cosplayer to help.
Fellow book nerds let’s welcome Cameron.
Cameron is Kenya’s most bestest friend in the world, they have partnered up for a million cosplaying in past events, he as well is crafty in the costume realm. Cameron is also the reason Kenya is on the show, he convinced and helped her audition. They are roommates and have been childhood best friends since forever. As Kenya has a slip of the tongue and calls Cameron her boyfriend on national T.V. not only is he her partner for this final round, they must also fake dating on camera. Yikes! But the more you read, the more you see lots of repressed emotions and years built of attraction, especially from Cameron’s end.
With the prize and their friendship on the line, the tension and chemistry in The Love Con makes for a wild ride. I truly felt like so many moments in this book I was truly tuning in to a reality show. Kenya is a fierce, black, and plus size cosplaying goddess that tackles all the fat-phobic and internalized racism like, well, the goddess she is.
My final thoughts on The Love Con by Seressia Glass is a true delight to read. I laughed and giggled at the flirtation between Cam and Kenya. I found my self clapping at Kenya’s remarks and cheering her triumphs, she was such a relatable character. Also Cameron is so dreamy. Pick this book up if you love the art of crafting as it goes into deep details, if you love all things Marvel, and bad ass female leads.
