I was expecting a breezy and a quick read. But what I didn’t expect was a heartwarming story full of depth. The book features a good family dynamic, close friendships and a beautifully-woven love story. It involves a (kinda) enemies-to-lovers trope and though I haven’t read stories with such a trope earlier,I really liked the way the trope was handled in the book. I was totally invested in the story and finished the book in less than three days. Quite a feat for me, since I am a slow reader. I found the main character very relatable. This is also my first book that I’ve read of Kasie West and I must say I really enjoyed her writing. It was simple but engaging. I am looking forward to reading more of her books.
