BT Urruela – Thirty Days: Part Two

Nerdy Novelist’s REVIEW:

The second installment of Gavin Mazzerelli’s swipe dating adventure continues as BT Urruela truly hits the mark with Thirty Days: Part Two. Gavin struggles with depression opening up some self-destructive coping methods. He’s been working on restructuring his mental game and learning to appreciate life again. His good friend Bobby challenges him to thirty days of swipe dating to get him back out and enjoying life again. The struggling writer is desperate for money and inspiration making this a win-win for him. What he doesn’t filter into the equation is he might actually meet someone he wants to explore further. This is where the heart and head of Gavin begin to separate and he digs deep into what he wants versus what he needs. Unfortunately, he may just be too late in figuring himself out before the bubble bursts.

BT Urruela sprinkles a plethora of allusionary references, humor, wit, and realism throughout Thirty Days: Part Two that the story simply unfolds without a hitch. He also is the master of twists of fate and Catch 22’s. His juxtaposition between Sami and Megan is well plotted and only helps to perpetuate the dynamic development of Gavin through his mental journal back into writing and life itself. Gavin is demonstrating change over time, slowly climbing his way to change but in Urruela style he makes ever gain painstakingly tough and well earned along the way. While this is a cliffhanger, just like part one, Urruela leaves his readers thirsty for the final installment.

***Please note this is book two and is not a standalone.

A week into his thirty day challenge, Gavin has unexpectedly found himself interested in two women he’s met through the SwipeDate app. As he continues with his best friend Bobby’s twenty-five thousand dollar proposition, he finds himself drawn to both Sami and Megan, each unique and intriguing in her own way. While interest grows with the two of them, he’s becoming increasingly annoyed by the daily first dates, and the disruption they’ve brought to his life.

Despite the annoyance, Gavin finally sees progress in his recovery from mental illness and discovers a hope he hasn’t felt in years. An unexpected run-in with his past will test this newfound hope and threaten to crush the foundation he’s worked so hard to build. Can Gavin find the balance he yearns for, and a woman to love, while the circumstances he’s struggling with are still so fragile and raw?
