I don't know how I missed reading this. I thought this was a good book and I had a good time reading it.

After re-reading: OMG. I forgot how incredible this book was. It is full of charm and wit, but also so much heart. Absolutely stunning. I think I loved this more after re-reading than I did the first time. 
Original review: 5⭐️ While this doesn’t top Marrying Winterborne for me, I still really loved it. Pandora is so endearing. I love her never-ending stream of thoughts and her untamed personality. She was so full of life and I loved that Gabriel loved her for who she was. The romance was so sweet. I loved this couple so much!

4.75

4,75 because of the needless stress it gave me when the romance was already all nicely tied up. Also maybe don’t put the entire summary of the book on the back of said book? Lol. It was romantic BUT not more than Chasing Cassandra (to me) I loved this in the way that I loved the characters but because I’m not as awesome and independent as Pandora I didn’t relate to her as much as I could still it was AMAZING and so sweet

Besides that I really loved this book. I instantly figured out that Pandora had ADHD. Gabriel was so hot and not just in the physical sense because duh Sebastian and Evie are his parents. He was really kind and understanding to all the fears Pandora had about marriage. Also was very much willing to do the right thing even though he didn’t actually ‘ruin’ her or know her yet. Gabriel is literally the perfect type of jealous you want to see in a romance novel, he feels jealous but he’s not controlling or makes a whole ordeal out of it.

Besides the romance this book was feminist AF and I loved all the support Pandora’s family were giving her on the subject of her not wanting to be married and starting her own business.
