I went into this book not knowing what this was about, so I didn't expect anything at all. I relate to Molly a lot with her social anxiety etc. so it was interesting to see how she approaches romantic relationships. The leads had way more in common than I thought, I think this story taught me to give a chance to people who are very different from me and to not be afraid to dig deeper. Oh and I love that most of the characters we see are queer and there's no homophobia about it!! As a lesbian I sometimes feel pressured to fill in a particular type, so it was refreshing to read a book where the characters are so different but yet share the same identity😌 I also appreciate that this book adresses serious problems such as alcoholism and one's relationship with their cultural heritage etc. and isn't just a sweet read (sweet reads are fine, but I very rarely like them). Overall, it's a nice book and a quick read too, as I binged it in a day😅

Okay, wow, I just read this entire book today, in practically a single sitting. I absolutely adored it. Sure, some of the writing in the very beginning felt a bit forced, but once I was hooked I was hooked.

This is a really cute love story, with some of my favorite tropes done really well. I didn't even realize until I read the acknowledgements that the authors are married, which makes it even cuter. I'd definitely recommend this to any romance fans.

And (spoilers)
Spoiler I was reeeaaally glad it was explicitly acknowledged how manipulative Natalie was to Alex. I was really worried for a minute that we were supposed to think that was an okay way to treat someone you're with.


Thank you to Netgalley and Simon and Schuster for the chance to read and review this ARC.
