  • An ungodly amount of sex scenes (would it be so hard to market these kinds of books as erotic romance? I'm just saying that was A LOT and I would've liked a warning)
  • The blackmail. I do not care if this is a spoiler, I think everyone who thinks about reading this book should know about it. You could smell it coming from a mile away (=not skillfully interwoven into the story so that there's still a mystery around it and so that I won't think the characters are grade a stupid). The climax/ conflict that ensues (third act breakup) could've EASILY been avoided but alas the author just HAD to make me hate the characters and the book. So.
  • Let's get back to the erotic romance point. What if some of the side plot was shortened and the author actually chose to focus on the stupid/ cringe factor and the erotic aspect? I feel like this shouldn't have been a rom-com (in the pure sense), and if the book knew not to take itself so serious (which I felt was a problem here, like there was little self awareness of how dumb and cringe this shit actually was) it could've been better.

  • Plot- or character-driven? N/A
  • Strong character development? It's complicated
  • Loveable characters? Yes
  • Diverse cast of characters? It's complicated
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? Yes


Beautiful, fun, lighthearted read. Great for fans of witty banter. Grumpy x sunshine, fated mates, fake dating, alle the good shit. Great for those of us who had a significant AO3 phase ;). Pretty light on plot. Pretty fast paced.
