RATING: 3.5 STARS
2019; Gallery Books/Simon & Schuster Canada
Okay, Christina and Lauren, you got me. The pretty cover and diverse heroine drew me in but oh my, oh my, Ethan is the reason you kept me reading/listening.
This is the typical rom-com where boy and girl do not like one another, and are put in the same room and come to love another - after some hilarity ensues. This may sound like a jab, but it's really not! I enjoyed the predictable story with it's own endearing characters and brand of humour. It takes a lot for me to get into rom-com novels, and even more to enjoy it. I rated it a 3.5 stars and not a solid 4 because it is not one I would reread, but is one I would recommend to other readers. I have to say, I felt a lot like Olive with her unlucky streak. The last few years have not gone as smoothly as I hoped (but then again I can say that for my life), and yet it has not gone as badly as it could. I am down for more Christina Lauren novels!
