This was a cute and unique concept. I could really relate to the fmc. But I found myself getting bored about halfway through.

Cute romance. It got a little too cheesy/gushy at the end, but I enjoyed it and it helped pull me out of a slump.

3.75/5 stars

I enjoyed this book much more than the first one in the series. I do find the series unnecessary, though, as the books are hardly related. Yes, the protagonist from book 1 is this book's protagonist's sister, but she only appears in one scene, which isn't very memorable. Also, I do realize that they have the whole "influencer" job in common, but such doesn't seem like a good enough thread to warrant a series. Personally, these seem like two unrelated books.

On another note, I found this book thoroughly enjoyable. The main plot is, albeit, cliché, but it was approached in a modern way, which I appreciated. Also, the beginning is gross. Overall, It was cute, thoughtful but lighthearted, romantic instead of lustful, and definitely worthy of being made into a rom-com movie. I really liked the love interest's character. He seemed believable. In fact, most characters were well rounded enough that they seemed legitimate, which is important in a book. So, I enjoyed that. I did not like the steamy scenes; they were so carnal and vulgar, which doesn't match the cutesy tone of the rest of the book (at least there were only two). Also, ending a book with a sex scene seemed tacky to me, and the following epilogue unnecessary. It would have been better if it were two chapters shorter. Overall, though, it was a memorable and fun rom-com. I definitely enjoyed it.
