Have you ever had a crush? 

Have you ever had a crush so astronomically huge you were willing to tell the person anything to make them fall in love with you?

If you're Annalise Dresden, then the answer is yes. Yes you have. And you're in way over your head. 

Before Frankie, Leece was like any other girl in her mid-twenties - a med school dropout with too much debt, a drinking problem, and no memory of her life before her nineteenth birthday. Alright, maybe she wasn't like any other girl, but still. Her life was somewhat normal. But Frankie changed everything. Frankie, the simple girl with the first crush eyes, working at a Big Lots in Northwest Indiana after dropping out of college. Frankie, who somehow changed Leece's whole life with a single look. 

Even though the two women couldn’t be more opposite, Leece feels a connection to Frankie unlike any she's felt before, compelling her to tell Frankie lie after lie to try to win her over. But when Frankie suspects Leece might not be exactly who she says she is, their relationship grows rocky. Plagued by visions of her sketchy past, Leece must figure out who she really is before she loses everything she loves, including Frankie.

Because as messy and imperfect as their relationship was, to Frankie, it was beautiful, the closest thing to perfect she’d ever had.
And she wasn’t about to give up on perfect.

But as she walked through the automatic doors and watched Frankie look up and break into a smile when she saw Leece, Leece broke into one too. Because Frankie just crushed her sometimes. She’d look at her and that was it. She was obliterated.

"Aren’t you supposed to wait thirty minutes to swim after you eat?” said Frankie.
“I like to live dangerously.”
“I don’t have a swimsuit.”
Leece grinned. “Neither do I."

First, I want to thank Audrey Wilson and Flashpoint Publications for providing me with the book so I may bring you this review. 

Ohh I could not stop smiling reading Only Human by Audrey Wilson! Only Human is 

Leece’s and Frankie’s beautifully written love story! These two had chemistry that was off the charts! I loved being the fly on the wall seeing their relationship’s ups and downs. 

Instantly I fell head over heels in love with the beautiful cover art! The graphic was spot on to the story and wow the colors were breathtaking. It was very eye-catching where you just needed to know what the book is about. 

Audrey brings up some very important topics like substance abuse, alcoholism, sexual assault and rape. 

There are some mysterious twists and turns that you will not see coming. It is a storyline that was thought outside of the box. 

This is a fast paced, addictive, quick read that will have you smiling too. I would highly recommend this book to add to your TBR List.
