Definitely enjoyed this one a LOT more than the first in the series. Oscar and Jack have interesting chemistry. There was a lot of times I related to Oscar but also felt so frustrated being in his head. I think what would’ve improved this drastically would’ve been a dual pov. The story could’ve benefited from Jack’s perspective on the relationship and Oscar’s behavior. 

Still, I did like this. The start was great then got very slow.

Enemies/hate to lovers is my favorite trope.

I picked up this book after seeing a review flutter by somewhere, because the overview seemed interesting. And as much as I had hoped to just breeze through a predictable romance, I ended up treasuring this tale. Sure, there were some of my favorite tropes (enemies to lovers, meddling snarky grandma), but here also was a main character with severe anxiety paired with a snappy dark humor. His love/hate interest tried to appear at first as an emotionless asshole, but the genius plot device had them literally sorting through years of his and his family’s history. So my heart went out to both of them, and I had to keep reading and reading. But also I didn’t want to read too fast, because the writing was hilarious and smart and full of every insight I didn’t know I needed. 
Strangely, I did try reading the first book in this series, which told the romance of two other people in Oscar’s friend group, but it just didn’t interest me. But this second book stood great on its own.

A funny and well written rom-com that kept me smiling and rooting for the characters.
It's well written, the characters are interesting and I liked the humor.
It's the first book i read by this author and won't surely be the last.
Recommended.
Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC, all opinions are mine
