Why did I want to read this book?
A snarky heroine and an sexy but uptight hero is a combination I can definitely get on board with. I wanted to witness their interactions and all the transitions in their relationship that are bound to happen.
What worked for me?
One of the things that I really appreciated in this story is how Tabitha and Drew were able to maintain their characterizations all throughout the book. Yes, there were growth and development but these didn’t feel abrupt. The magic with their romance is that it was something that crept up to them, in a way. Yes, there were those moments of complete clarity when they finally accepted within themselves and owned to their feelings but the pacing of their falling was really engaging to watch unfold. It’s like you just understood that they have strong feelings for one another.
I was a little torn about the conflicts. I accepted some but the others I questioned and wasn’t really a fan of. But I do get their necessity from a plot viewpoint. The really good ones were great for character development and for stretching that band of relationship that was connecting Tabitha and Drew together.
I also love that we get to see many sides from these two. They’re not simply one-dimensional characters so it made reading the story enjoyable.
What did not work for me?
Like I said earlier, there were some turn in the conflicts that I wasn’t a fan of. There might be room for a little improvement on that front.
My over-all take on it?
I can say that this was a breezy, sexy read but at the same time it also was pretty intense and emotional in some parts. Both of which definitely add points in my book. The chemistry between Tabitha and Drew was definitely sexy and definitely there but their emotional entanglement is also a great plus.
