Books with asexual representation are scarce and usually asexuality is not the main topic. Let's Talk About Love is unapologetically ace and that’s part of what makes it great.
There aren’t many books, especially rom-coms, that focus solely on romance and do not mix it with sexual attraction, and the way romance plays out in this book makes it a lovely rom-com. The relationship feels so genuine and easy going, it just blooms naturally and beautifully.
Just like its title, the book is a conversation on love and how society defines it. The book feels like a manifesto that shares a point of view that is usually ignored. Alice, the main character, knows who she is and is proud of her identity, but she can’t help but feel like the world is not entirely ready for her to embrace and be completely open about it. Her character development in combination with those feelings makes her an exceptional character.
Her conversation on how difficult it is to explain being asexual and try to convince whoever is hearing you that you are not broken, nor in search of the right one. She exemplifies that love shouldn’t be only about attraction but instead it can be about sharing your emotions, thoughts and time with someone that is important to you. This whole book is part of a conversation that we all should have, and that’s why everyone should read it.
