We have a really tough case of "telling not showing" when it comes to character backgrounds until approx. the middle of the book, but in my opinion it's kinda balanced out by the humour which really landed with me.
The characters are very likeable and even though Will Griffin screams "man written by a woman" that's why we love him, amirite girls? Annie is a very likeable fmc if you like them neurodivergent coded like me. We also have ✨ character development✨ for both of them!!!!! And no misunderstanding trope!!!!! Hoorayyyyy.
Mad respect to the writer for how smooth the third act conflict was, if you can even call it a conflict. I tend to hate this part in many books but here it was completely fitting and I love Sarah for that.
FYI this book does not contain sex scenes! I was not familiar with the author so if you aren't either, I think this is good for you to know in case you're looking for them or if you're looking to avoid them. Personally I don't mind with or without them, but in this case I was kinda disappointed cause I was curious to see how they handled Annie's first time.
