I received this arc when I requested to be part of a traveling arc group. This is my second and probably last Tessa Bailey novel. I wasn’t a fan of either Fox or Hannah. The sex scenes had way too much unrealistic sounding dialogue. The lack of communicating between two adult people also irked me. If you like someone, just tell them.

This was my first Tessa Bailey book and I really enjoyed it, I thought it was an easy read that was perfect for summer. The characters in this novel were so loveable! This book is written in dual POV so we get both Fox and Hannah’s perspectives which I loved. Friends to lovers isn’t usually my favorite trope but I absolutely loved it in this book, I think it was very well written. Fox and Hannah’s relationship progressed so nicely and naturally throughout the book (but verrry slowly). They work through their many insecurities about themselves and their pasts, but they do so together and it made this a very emotional read but exciting to see them heal and grow along the way. I think their insecurities really added to their depth as characters and made them seem real.

I wish that we saw more sisterly interaction between Piper and Hannah, but overall this was the perfect cute, steamy summer read. I could not put this book down and I would have finished it in one sitting if I had the time! I would recommend this book to anyone who loves forced proximity, friends to lovers, or slow burn tropes. I will definitely be reading anything that Tessa Bailey writes after finishing this book!

Thank you Netgalley and Avon and Harper Voyage for the ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review!
