I generally really wanted to love this book, but it was just ok for me. The synopsis is what sold the book for me and I was really excited when I received the ARC for the book.
The romance missed the mark for me. The chemistry just wasn’t there for me, which ruined the whole friends to lovers trope for me. The plot wasn’t terrible and it was well written. I think I had a different expectation for the book than what I actually received when reading the book. I think that ruined the book for me. This book has some pretty fun, funny moments which I did enjoy. I did feel in the beginning it was a simple read, but the deeper you got into the book, things seemed to become darker.
This book displayed a lot of personal growth in some characters and growth in friendships. I do think that the right audience will definitely enjoy this.
