My Review:

I will admit, it took a while for me to fall for this book. Not because the writing was bad, it wasn’t that at all. And not because I wasn’t enjoying the storyline, I wouldn’t have kept reading otherwise. But I didn’t have that warm fuzzy feeling I usually get when I’m introduced to the concept of the main characters being a thing. That part when we’re supposed to root for them from the jump. I guess the chemistry just wasn’t there for me. But then it was, and I was happy to finally feel the warm fuzzies I’m used to. I was elated to root for the couple. Both Danna and Cay had their moments that brought out different emotions in me, both good and bad. But I’ll let y’all read about it yourselves. I don’t do spoilers. I both loved and side eyed Danna’s family throughout this book. They were great supporting characters to the couple throughout the story. But overall, I enjoyed this. I’d definitely read more from this author.
