After loving Get a Life and Act your Age, I knew I had to get Take a Hint and boy, I was NOT disappointed! The voice is just amazing as ever (Talia Hibbert is a voice goddess, I swear!), I was laughing through so many moments of this book. I also loved the romance between Dani and Zafir - Zaf is such a grouchy sweetheart, and his anxiety was really relatable! I loved reading about a tall, buff, grouchy male love interest who struggles with mental health issues, is open about having gone to therapy and also a romance novel lover! Romance novels are amazing and I'm glad Zaf gave me a great realization on why I love them too: it's not just the romance, it's watching people overcome their issues and grow from their mistakes, over and over, and tell yourself you can also do the same. Zafir's whole character and character arc was incredibly encouraging and heartwarming. On the other hand, Danika is one hell of a MC and I aspire to have half her confidence. Also: BI ICON. Letting yourself love again after being so hurt is one hell of a struggle and I loved seeing her give love a chance again after so desperately avoiding to take the hint :P
Another amazing book by Talia Hibbert that I can only recommend!

“How many people,” he asked quietly, “know how kind you are?”
“I . . . um . . .” Dani swallowed befuddlement and willed away her
blush. “I’m not.”
“Right,” he said dryly, and then he bumped their noses together, and her
entire middle folded in half before melting everywhere like butter.

I am obsessed. I love books where the women is independent and afraid of being vulnerable. Zaf is a adorable teddy bear.
I love this series so much, all the characters, the writing, everything.

How do I know this is a good book? Because I annotated it. Twice. As a rule, I typically do not annotate contemporary books, I don't need to. Annotations are to help track my thoughts and connect the dots so I am less confused and overwhelmed by fantasy books. But there were two very important scenes that I felt the need to annotate in this book, a contemporary, because they struck a chord in me. Oddly enough, neither annotation was for one of the two main characters. 
Spoiler
One was for Redford who, after the third act break up where Dani is being comforted by sisters, comes home to Chloe's apartment and says “If the guy I’m supposed to kill is that big fucker from the video,
we’ll need an airtight plan.” Obviously very dedicated to his significant other's family and I love that and I love how serious he seems about it. 

The second was for Jamal, who is dating Zaf's sister-in-law through his late brother and when talking about proposing he says “What kind of ring do you get a woman like that? Plus, it has to match the first one.” Some guys might expect her to take off the ring from her first husband, but he doesn't even question that she'll keep it on and that he will find one to match it. Perfect man.
