    "I am not your typical consumer of romance novels. It's not my favorite genre, but I read this on a lark. I love books about psychology and the mind, so a romance with a lead character with Aspberger's intrigued me. I must say, I was pretty impressed and the story did not fail to entertain and fascinate me."

    "This romantic comedy is nearly guaranteed to make you laugh out loud. The Rosie Project (Don Tillman) by Graeme Simsion is about a 40 year old man with Asberger's syndrome. The book is light and enjoyable and I would highly recommend it to any reader that wants to spend an afternoon exploring love, friendship, compatibility and trust, "

    "I believe that books like this are very rare but very needed as they highlight the fact that many different types of people are around and many types of super heroes can be made by different types of people. This is a good book in the series and the characters very relatable."

    "I do not know very much about this book but after looking into it some, there is nowhere that clearly states that the main character, Janie Morris, is autistic. She may be on the spectrum but it is not clearly defined. This is also a romance novel, so that is something to keep in mind before picking it up."

    "I enjoyed reading Puddle Jumping. I like romance novels. It was good to see the perspective that someone who is Autistic can be in a good romantic relationship. I think it would be good for someone who is Autistic to give them hope that he will have a romance too."

    "Souls Unfractured by Tillie Cole is the first dark romantic contemporary novel I've read that has a hero who is autistic. I applaud the writer for keeping it real and introducing interesting characters who are not typical hero material. Unfortunately though, I didn't enjoy this book. There was too much violence, trauma, and abuse which I think overshadowed an otherwise compelling story. I just wasn't feeling a connection with the characters and the romantic aspects were not as powerful as the darkness of the book. This book is definitely not for the faint of heart."
