This was a very sweet book, very poetically written and a great reset from some of the other books I've read this year. I thought the plot could have been a lot tighter, though, and sometimes the characters did things that seemed not to fit based on what we knew of them so far. Overall, however, it was a charming read that I'm glad I read. Plus, that cover art!

 Rogers has created what is perhaps one of the cutest stories of all time. She explores the "drunk married in vegas" trope through a lens that feels fresh. Yuki is a lovable love interest, and my only complaint is that there isn't more of her in this book. 
But this isn't just a love story between Yuki and Grace. It's a story about how Grace learns to grow into her own life through her love of Yuki. 
I would read a spin off book about any of these characters. Seriously. Raj, Agnes, any of them. Theyre all so loveable. 
I adore the positive, yet realistic light the story portrays therapy in. 
I also gotta say, I want to listen to Yuki's podcast.
That's all. Five stars.

3.0

This book features very relatable post-grad stress as well as the experience of being a queer WOC trying to make it in their field. Great representation of the hard work that therapy is, as well as complex relationships with parents. The romance was also very cute and I loved it, but I wish the relationship between Yuki and Grace had more depth.
SpoilerThey come together too easily, fall apart too easily, and then reconcile in a very predictable way.
In spite of that, I did cry at multiple points in the book and really enjoyed it. Morgan Rogers is a great writer.
