I did not expect to like this book so much. I’d really enjoyed Infinite Loop (even though I’ve no idea what it’s about, since I’m so good at forgetting, which I’ve just proven once more as I just realized I’d given 3 * so I might have to read it again soon to check) but I’d been rather disappointed with Her Best Friend’s Sister. Sure, the sex scenes were hot but I never felt any connection to the characters, didn’t much care about the story (insofar as there was a story between the sex), so I was a bit wary about this one, despite the mostly raving reviews. Which is why it took me a long time to get to it.
I was SO wrong. Yes, the sex is still steamy but there’s so much more to this novel. The depiction of social anxiety, for one, is spot on. Also, any other story where the MCs fall in love in less than 48 hours would have me groan (not in pleasure) but here I believed it. I liked the complexity of the characters, I loved secondary character Bree, I liked the pace of the story, the atmosphere etc.
In conclusion, don’t make the same mistake, just read this book. It’s fun, it’s romantic and, yes, it’s sexy.
