My Review:

If you’re familiar with my reviews, then you know friends to lovers is my favorite trope. Tay did it justice. She gave us insight into how the friendship blossomed from childhood, and we got to witness what they meant to each other before the romance kicked in during their adult years. I always appreciate it when authors don’t rush the process of the friendship becoming more. Both Jersey and O’Shea are characters who will forever pop into my brain when I hear “What Doesn’t Kill You Makes You Stronger” by Kelly Clarkson.

What stole my heart the most about this book was the foster care story arc. Growing up, I always talked about becoming a foster mom when I was in the position to do so. We got to see many sides of the foster system journey. The stories of what can lead you there. What can happen at the hands of others while in the system, both positive and negative. What it takes to become a foster parent. And finally the highs and lows of being a foster parent. This story arc was beautifully written, and for me, it was the best aspect of the entire book. It added layers to the romance that we witnessed between O’Shea and Jerzey.

To wrap this up, I enjoyed this one. I definitely recommend it. One last thing, Granny Mae 🙌🏾 all shout-outs go to her. 💙
