The third & final Brown sisters novel comes to a close and it couldn’t have ended more perfectly.

This was such a cute (& steamy oml 🥵) romance. The story/plot is very different— one I’ve never read about before. I loved Eve and how she stood up for herself while being sensitive at the same time. She reminded me of myself in some ways.

I removed a star because of two reasons: 

1) the conflict felt forced? Everything was going seemingly well & then BAM the conflict arises. It seemed avoidable and unnatural.

2) I wasn’t keen on the self-diagnosing. I get wanting to have answers and being curious about yourself— possibly having a medical “issue.” However, people with disabilities & medical concerns fight so hard to get proper diagnoses and are so often dismissed, so it can be discouraging and frustrating when others self-diagnose without seeking medical intervention.

Other than that— I’m a fan! I liked this one very much & I recommend 🤗
