MY THOUGHTS~I received an arc of this book to review.
I quickly fell in love with characters in this book. I absolutely LOVE a "friends-to-lovers" story and this book is that and then some! It takes you on an emotional ride along with the main characters. I would have liked to have seen more of their past in the beginning of the book than the author included, but the past was outlined throughout the story, so there weren't too many blank spots. I feel like the characters were well defined. The story was well written, which I appreciate as a reader and grammar junkie :) I will definitely be on the lookout for a sequel! Even if a continuation of the series means future books may be about other characters in the book rather than the "original" couple, I look forward to reading their stories!
