Review: Confessions of a Chatterbox by Abagail Davies

Title: Confessions of a Chatterbox
Series: Confessions Series #2
Author: Abigail Davies
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: November 8, 2018

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.
Until him.
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.

So, this book is OMG. I love the premise of this book, some one with a precieved disability in a romantic lead role. Not a physical disability either, one thats stigmatized and often considered off limits. I love that the dad let him be who he is and accepted the fact this his son was a sexual being. I loved, loved, loved it.
Now onto the story.
El was quirky, at times she was over the top but it wasn't too bad, it became kind of endearing actually. She was a chatterbox and brilliant so the things coming out of her mouth was awesome sometimes. I love how she dealt with students.
JJ was written beautifully, it showed the nuances of having autism, but also the human element that is unfairly stripped away, plus he was hot. That always helps. I loved his honesty and how he came into his own.
I also love when I read a book and I'm invested in the supporting characters. I was so excited when I realized that there was also a book for Vi. I want to know more about the mom that left, and I want his dad to find love too. I want everyone happy. I hope we haven't heard the last of this group yet.
Great series.

Abigail Davies grew up with a passion for words, storytelling, maths, and anything pink. Dreaming up characters—quite literally—and talking to them out loud is a daily occurrence for her. She finds it fascinating how a whole world can be built with words alone, and how everyone reads and interprets a story differently. Now following her dreams of writing, Abigail has found the passion that she always knew was there. When she’s not writing: she’s a mother to two daughters who she encourages to use their imagination as she believes that it’s a magical thing, or getting lost in a good book. If she’s doing neither of those things, you can be sure she’s surfing the web buying new makeup, clothes, or binge watching another show as she becomes one with her sofa.
