Adorable. I'm so glad I decided to pick up the audiobook for this one! This was my first Christina Lauren book and I loved everything about it. The pacing was perfect, especially considering how much the enemies/rivals section had to build to make the end of the plot believable. 

It also had some jaw dropping moments! I wasn't expecting a couple of the twists, and even though they were wild and a little painful, it felt like it helped wrap the story up nicely and succinctly. Olive was a great main character, stubborn and "down on her luck" are two traits I don't see done well with main characters but it meshed perfectly with Ethan's unwavering sarcasm and wit. 

Also, I just loved the family aspect to this book. All of the background with Olive's family and their involvement was great. Truly one of my favorite romcoms I've read this year!

I'm only docking a star because I did get extremely frustrated with the miscommunication and third act break up. It makes sense in the narrative and it does what the plot needed it to, but I just wish it had gone in a different direction.

the first half was good, until the part where he didnt believe her, and the worst part is that she forgave him and then they got back together. miss girl is blind if she cant see the red flag.

I really liked this. Very witty, lots of banter, not much spice. Personally though
Spoiler I would not have forgiven Ethan

It was just okay. I think that I just don’t like rom-com books that much. It was a fast read though and fun at some parts.
