It started well. I love how they managed to touch on the characters flaws and developed them throughout the book. The setting is a little bit bland. I don't feel as excited. However, I still enjoy the book. I think both of them are so cute. 

Ps. I realised that it's hard for me to enjoy contemporary romances that are not typically for young adults. I become so picky and I feel like I can't relate as much (although I'm an adult). This book makes me realised this indifference.

I have to admit that I was not fully prepared to jump into this amazing story. True, I was aware of the diversity and that the female lead had a chronic illness/chronic pain, but this book was so much more and completely refreshing.

First, I love that the "heal me handsome" trope was avoided, but there was still room for both parties to support, care for, and promote growth and healing for each other. It was as it should be: a relationship is a place of safety, not a cure all. It was beautifully done. 

Second, I loved how naturally the story progressed, and especially how it showcased that two people can hurt each other without trying, that sometimes one person's coping mechanism can be another's trigger, and that it is possible to work around those things while you grow to understand your partner. 

Above all, this story was about emotional healing after trauma. Fear is a very real, debilitating thing; choosing to live again despite pain and trauma takes bravery and courage. You are the only one who can choose life over fear; no one else can do it for you.

This was an amazing, cathartic read, and I'm excited to get into Dani and Eve's books.
