"[A] warmly appealing romance." —BookPage on The Love Study

All Mason wants to do is fall in love, get married and live happily ever after.

The hunt is beginning to wear him down…until he meets (slightly) famous fashion designer Diego. Everything sparks between them—the banter, the sex, the fiery eye contact across a crowded room.

There's just one thing: Diego is already married and living his happily-ever-after, which luckily (or not) for Mason includes outside courtships.

But not quite in the way he'd always imagined.

Mason thought he knew what would make him happy, but it turns out the traditional life he'd expected has some surprises in store.

This was such a lovely warm hug of a book. I loved its gentleness. I loved the characters’ care for each other. I’ve really really loved this series overall — the characters and tone of each title are distinctive and yet they complement each other across the constellation of the central friend group.

The Life Revamp is a total gem! It's full of heart, love and charm. I loved this book so much! I haven't read any of the other stories from the Love Study series but I will be getting them now! I had no issues reading this without reading the other first. I loved Mason! He was so much fun to get to know. I also loved Diego! I really enjoyed reading about a different type of relationship. It's rare to read a story about polyamory. It's even rarer to read one that's written in such a delightful positive way. I loved watching Mason and Diegos relationship flourish. Also, I enjoyed the theme of chosen family in this story. I really couldn't have loved The Life Revamp anymore!

This is the first rom-com I've ever read featuring a polyamorous relationship. I appreciated how the author describes the relationships amongst the characters and how positive they are.
The characters are likeable and the story is both heartwarming and sweet.
It kept me reading and thoroughly enjoyed.
Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC, all opinions are mine

Five stars simply do not do The Life Revamp justice. In fact, I'm calling the third and final book in Kris Ripper's The Love Study series as my favorite of 2021.

The Life Revamp is the most romantic, sweet, fuzzy, squeal-inducing romance I've read in a while. I just adored Mason and Diego. And Claris was a delightful conduit for their coming together.

As I've mentioned in my reviews of the previous two books, the Marginalized Motherfuckers is the group of friends I would only be so lucky to have. Their support of each other is unwavering and they rally around Mason to help him get his happily ever after.

I enjoyed Mason's gradual realization and acceptance of what he imagined his HEA looking like and the reality of it. Diego is the perfect love interest, his attentiveness to Mason's needs and his passion in romancing Mason. Diego and Mason truly are the perfect couple.

I am thrilled how Mason's HEA turned out. He absolutely deserved to find a partner to give him the love he craved and had to offer.

***Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review.***

This is such a fun romance! Fun, with lots of angsty, lots of real conflict that is messily resolved, and Ripper's signature ability to write about queer family with nuance, honest, and joy. Big recommend.
