Genre: Romantic Comedy and Mystery.
Just a Little Junk by Stylo Fantome is a romantic comedy/ mystery novel. There are pieces of the book, and perhaps the mix of the genres as well, that remind me of some of my other favorite novels like Jed Had to Die and Rock Chick. So I really enjoyed this aspect overall. Another appealing piece of this books are the characters. They have just the right amount of humor to keep readers laughing. However, I didn't really feel the "seriousness" of the situation they were put in which turned me off just a little bit. Other than that their sass, snark, and overall banter is perfect for the novel. Finally, this cover needs some love. I am a cover-lover and not afraid to admit it. And yes, I do judge books by their covers (well, in terms of whether I will pick them up or not) and this one spoke to me immediately. Dare I say, it may be on my top 3 favorite covers of 2017? Yes! The colors, vividness, and uniqueness of it really drew my attention and I really love it!
With that, this is a fun, easy-going, and lighthearted read. There is some violence, mentions and uses of drugs (which the author writes in a humerus way), some sexy times, and mystery. It's a friends to lovers romance as well and has little angst but a lot of misunderstandings. The whole mystery of the story surrounds a dead body that the heroine finds in her trunk and then the adventure that ensues to figure out just how it got there. Overall, it's a unique idea and the author did a great job piecing at all together.
