Cute and quick read, pretty good vibes all around. The spice was mostly hot but at some points I thought it was abit cringe but maybe that’s just me? 

Hattedddd the MMC’s name I just couldn’t get over it and kept calling him Summer like the season, HOWEVER, that man had me gigglingggg for multiple reasons but mostly because he was a big weirdo
who fell first and harder (which I love)
.He kinda gave ‘Doberman boyfriend’ energy at first and then he’d go and say some outrageous stuff
especially during spicy parts
and I was kinda just like WTF LOL. In my annotations I literally put multiple times “why would he say that the big weirdo” but besides that I did actually like him. 

Thought the FMC was a pretty cool and complex character considering it was only 144 pages long I felt like she had a lot of depth.
also liked how she had doubts about buying the bar as her original dream it felt more ‘real’
I think I probably favoured her because I also work in a bar / pub and could relate to her alot. 

Only thing I would’ve liked to have seen more is the FMCs brother / friends it would’ve been interesting to explore the teams dynamic and stuff but I understand there’s only so much you can say in a novella.
