I loved this so much! I literally devoured it in a few hours - it’s the perfect quick romance, that’ll have you smiling and kicking your feet. 

As a fellow massive rom-com fan, this just felt like the perfect nod to everything that makes them so comforting.

I loved the references, all the clichés,  and the playlists, and if I was to read this again, I’d definitely listen to the songs as I was reading!

Honestly if you love romance, this book won’t disappoint you, and it gave me that incredible nostalgic feeling of watching your first rom-com and longing for your own meet-cute.

Light-hearted, funny, with likable, high-school-aged characters, plus a heroine who's obsessed with rom-coms, which is fun. The only downside for me is the main character is very slow to realize the obvious, a little bit to an annoying degree.

Oh, this was so fun and sweet! The writing was very light, the characters instantly endearing, the banter endlessly charming and the romance just absolutely adorable!
