An easy read, just not for me. I'm not someone that enjoys steamy scenes, but if you are after a cute romance, with some steamyness and chronic illness representation this could be one for you. I loved the story but not the sex scenes

I can totally see why a ton of people love this. It's a very wholesome romance that I think is just supposed to make the reader feel good. The characters are all good people who want the best for each other. There was nothing 'wrong' with the plot or characters. 

It's not perfect for me because it didn't emotionally hit me like it has for others but definitely a good book with no glaring issues.

Also the way it handles abuse and shitty partners is very good. I don't or am not close with anyone with a chronic illness but I can imagine how much Chloe meant to a lot of readers who can relate to her on that front. 

The audiobook narrator did not match well with the tone of this book however.

if i had a nickel for scenes where a character goes through another character’s cabinets in their apartment and critiques their lack of cutlery, i’d have two nickels… which isn’t a lot but it’s weird that it happened twice

I loved this book SO much! It was cute and a little spicy and had a disabled black woman as the main character (love the representation!). I think that Chloe’s disability was handled well in that it showed how much it affects her everyday life and also how she doesn’t necessarily want it to define her. The book is predictable, but it made me happy! I can’t wait to read the rest of the series and more by this author!

I am not used to adult books at all, so this was stepping outside my comfort zone. Overall, I do really recommend this book to anyone who loves romance books. I am definitely going to check out the rest of the Brown Sisters trilogy soon.
