It was okay, it could have been way better. I was disappointed in how flat it fell.
It left me more irritated than love sick. What a bummer.
I won’t give away spoilers, but will say I am over the self deprecating female trope. I’m not good enough for him, I am so lucky he picked me…blah blah blah. And, why would having short hair make someone less beautiful than someone who didn’t?! I want to rant about a few other things but no spoilers from me…you get my point.
– Thorne does write a male lead well; Tom is certainly swoon worthy I’ll give him that
– I like the book cover
– The narrator did a good job, I wonder what she was thinking as she was recording this book. I am so curious!
There were a few cringe worthy dialogue scenes that didn’t feel realistic to me: not the banter – which I enjoyed – but more serious conversations. As a fan of The Hating Game I think my expectations were just as high, if not higher for this one.
You win some, you lose some. If you read this – or want to read it – I hope you enjoy it! Come back and tell me what you thought (but please mind for spoilers).
Have you ever set too high of expectations going into a book? How do/did you manage?
